Since the 18th century speculation of unearthly life has been brought up by many influential people. One of the founding fathers of the United States, Benjamin Franklin, once stated "I believe that Man is not the most perfect Being but One; rather that as there are many degrees of Beings his Inferiors, so there are many degrees of Beings superior to him”. This quote justifies the fact that even the most prominent people believed in cosmic beings. Further in time, In July 1947, an unidentified flying object crash landed in a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico. What military officials discovered was nothing more than the debris of a weather balloon that was being tested. However, people did not seem to fathom the truth and began to investigate what the military did not want the public to know. Bodies of unknown humanoid beings were seized by the military and taken into a secret base for further analysis. Various reasons as to why celestial beings could lurk the universe are being brought upon by today’s modern science committee possibly unlocking an insight onto future life. The first reason as to why extraterrestrial life could perhaps exist is that there is a vast amount of galaxies, stars, planets, and solar systems that humans have not yet discovered. To think that humans, the only civilization on planet earth, are the only living organisms in space would be quite absurd.

These lights were spotted over Los Angeles, San Francisco and southern California by hundreds of civilians. There is no reasonable explanation as to how someone can fake such a widespread UFO sighting. Also, the Fermi paradox is false; celestial beings have already walked the earth left material evidence. Evidence of Ancient Astronauts are presented in hieroglyphics created by Aztecs, Egyptians, and Mayans. Extraterrestrial life is alive, there is evidence to suggest that organisms can live out in the depths of space, they should be proven as being existent.
