Hey everyone! Today I am going to be doing something a little different, I am going to be talking about a conspiracy theory. I have always loved conspiracy theories and this one is one that is pretty interesting to me. I am not saying that I always believe conspiracy theories, but I do try to keep an open mind. Also, I did base this conspiracy theory off of one of Shane Dawson’s videos, so definitely watch his video for more info!
Interesting fact for those of you who are more inclined to think that conspiracy theories are fake: The government invented the word conspiracy theory or conspiracy theorist. They get to control the reputation of that word. Just something to think about.
* this is obviously a conspiracy theory and I am not saying that it is real. This is also not my information but the links are my sources. I did a lot of research for this post so that the information was accurate for you guys, so enjoy 🙂
Aliens, could they exist?
Ok, let’s start with the aliens. Do they exist and is it impossible that they do exist? In my opinion, it seems strange to think that with all that is out in space, we are the only ones. However, I don’t want this post about my opinions (until the end).
So, water has been found on other planets in space. This seems like a huge step towards life on other planets. No life has ever been found on other planets, but according to Nasa “the possibility of extraterrestrial biology – the scientific logic that supports it – has grown increasingly plausible.”
As I mentioned above, our universe and space is so large, it almost seems comical to believe that we are the only ones, especially when there are signs that life could be out there. There are actually more planets than stars (according to National Geographic) which would increase the probability of life being out there. Before you ask, yes. Over a quarter of those planets would have ideal living conditions. Imagine this, there are over 25 billion places where life could exist in our galaxy alone. But, there are over trillions of other galaxies.
Evidence, credible people?
I know it can be easy to dismiss some people as just being crazy, but there have been many people who are credible (or have a lot to lose) that have stated that they saw, have been abducted, or believe in aliens. I was shocked when I heard about some of these.
The first is a man named Paul Hellyer. Hellyer is a past Canadian minister of defense. He is also an engineer, politician and a writer. It seems as though he is pretty smart and credible, right? The video I watched was from a government meeting but I found this one instead. In this video, Hellyer was speaking about extraterrestrials and what he said surprised me. Hellyer said that there are 4 different types of aliens that have visited earth for thousands of years. He also said that one of the species is a Tall White alien.
Another credible witness was the astronaut James McDivitt. McDivitt who is an astronaut that has worked for Nasa. He has flown in the Gemini and Apollo programs. In the video I watched of him (in Shane’s video) he said that he saw a UFO out in space in 1965. He also said he got to speak with a man who said that he was abducted by aliens and he agreed with him. Then, I read an article where he told Nasa that he didn’t see anything. It is kind of strange to me that he would just take back what he said.
I am sure you have heard of some alien abductions, and I have to admit that some of them seem pretty real to me. But… others seem really fake because there is no evidence. When I heard about this, I’m not going to lie, it seemed believable.
In 2001, a 22 year old women named Amy was asleep at night. Her friend who was staying in the room next to Amy heard strange noise, so she got up to look. When she walked into Amy’s room she saw Amy levitating and being pulled out of her bed by a bright beam of light through her broken window. So, you are probably thinking, this was just a dream, right? Nope. Amy was found miles away. Her body was full of strange markings and all of the hair on her body had grown at a rapid pace. If that isn’t strange enough, the bushes around her window were burnt and her window was actually broken.
Another abduction story I heard was a man named Travis Walton. Travis was with a group of friends in the woods when they saw something glowing in the sky. He got out to investigate and was hit with a beam of light and passed out. His friends freaked out and left him. His friends went to the police and they discovered that his body was gone. All of the friends took polygraph tests (lie detector tests) and passed. These are not very accurate because technically they only measure strong emotion, so there is a chance that they were lying. Once Travis was found he said that he had been abducted by aliens and actually saw them. He also took and passed a polygraph test. I am not convinced by this story, but there are definitely some strange things about it.
There are so many alien abduction stories that you can read about. It seems strange to me that so many people would be faking it, even well known people. Here is a list of alien abduction stories that you may read if you want to learn more.
There are even more cases of UFO sightings than alien abduction cases. One specific case made the news. At a Chinese airport guests and flight control spotted a UFO flying above the airport. The terminal was shut down. This incident effected 18 different flights. They still do not know what it was, but you can read about it on the news here.
Now, something a little more personal. My grandma actually saw a UFO. Let me just explain that my grandma was probably around 40 when she saw this. They were living in Alaska at the time. My grandma and grandpa were looking outside when they saw 4 lights move in the sky. She said that they were bright lights that moved in a formation. They moved extremely fast and zipped around the sky faster than any plane could. Both of my grandparents saw them. They actually watched the lights for 45 minutes. Let me also say that they didn’t really believe in aliens or UFO’s to begin with. They didn’t really know anything about them. My mom said that they both agreed they didn’t know what else it could be except for a UFO.
Aliens and the Government
Someone high up in the government has said on an anonymous post that “we are not alone.” You can look up QAnon and read about that, but anyways, I thought that was kind of creepy. You can read any of the newest posts from Q here.
I know a lot of people think that the government is hiding aliens in Area 51. One argument against this, is that it would have gotten out. They wouldn’t have been able to keep it a secret. I do agree with this, but people have said that they worked for Area 51 and mentioned aliens.
Bob Lazar is one of these people. He actually has a show on Netflix where he talks about his experience and how the government are trying to keep him quiet. There are others like Bob, who claim to have worked for or have information about aliens in Area 51. I am not sure if I believe the whole thing about Area 51, but there are strange things going on there. One thing I do know is that if the government were trying to make someone look crazy or discredit them, they would be able to do it.
The government has also responded to UFO sightings, saying that they are investigating them. One man named Nick Pope said that he secretly investigated UFO’s for the British government. Why would the government secretly investigate UFO’s if they knew they were real? Either that, or they made up the incident about investigating UFO’s in the past to avert from claims that it is actually them.
I know other people who think that the UFO’s sighted were actually the government’s secret Air Force projects which could also be true. This would explain the UFO’s and how people have never seen anything like it.
The Roswell Incident
The last thing I want to talk about is the Roswell incident. If you haven’t heard of Roswell, “on July 8, 1947 Public Information Officer Walter Haut of the Roswell Army Air Field in New Mexico issued a press release indicating that a flying saucer had been found in the desert. By the next day, the Army had changed their tune, stating the object had actually been a weather balloon, but it was too late,” (CBS News article).
This confuses me, why would the government tell the public that it was a UFO and then change their story? The government also said later that it was part of a secret atomic project that they were working on, but it seems like they changed the story quite a lot. Rumors spread about the incident, how a UFO had crashed and an alien was recovered and taken by the government.
What do you think?
I am curious as to what you think about aliens, Area 51, or UFO’s. I am not sure if I believe everything or not, but I don’t think so many people with so much to lose would lie about something that seems so crazy to others. I also don’t believe that we are alone in our entire universe.
