“If aliens of advanced civilizations from outer space had really visited our planet thousands of years ago,” asked the skeptics, “why haven’t they left any evidence of their stay here?”
True enough! That’s why it is so difficult to convince skeptics and orthodox scientists that they had, in fact, been here before. But the indirect proofs are all around us. It’s just that scientists fail or refuse to recognize them.
In February 1971, American astronaut Edgar Mitchell, on board the Apollo 14 spaceship bound for the moon, observed that there was another spacecraft following them. He radioed NASA if the other spacecraft was theirs or Russia’s. It was neither American nor Russian, came the reply, but no one could say anything more about it. The mysterious spacecraft followed the Apollo 14 from earth to the moon, but no mention of it came from NASA.
News blackout! That’s what happens to most UFO sightings or to anything that does not fall within traditional rational or scientific paradigms.
UFO encounters have been classified under the following four categories:
1. Close Encounters of the First Kind: Seeing unidentified flying objects in the sky from afar.
2. Close Encounters of the Second Kind: Seeing a UFO land on earth.
3. Close Encounters of the Third Kind: Actual or personal contact with an alien being from outer space.
4. Close Encounters of the Fourth Kind: Being taken into the alien’s spacecraft, either through invitation (like in the case of George Adamski in the 1950s) or through abduction or force (like in the case of Betty and Barney Hill in 1961).
None of the above types of encounters have ever been admitted by the United States or any other government official anywhere in the world.
When a strange spacecraft crashed in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947, the US military at once came, cordoned off the area and declared that what crashed was nothing more than an experimental weather balloon.
However, rumors began to slowly filter out from witnesses that there were three alien beings in that spacecraft; two had died but one was still alive. The alien crew and the debris left by the crash were hauled off to a secret military base, called Area 51, which the military insisted never existed.
According to some Ufologists, the military’s medical personnel conducted an autopsy on the dead aliens, and the one who was alive was made a prisoner. It was said the alien spoke all known languages in the world and had very advanced knowledge of space science and technology unknown to earthlings. It was theorized that the sudden advance in our modern technology, from fiber optics to computers, was a result of that contact with the alien.
Where he—or it—is now, if in fact he existed, no one knows, and those who knew were not allowed to talk about it. So the speculation continues up to now.
But there’s evidence of alien contacts from other sources. A certain gold artifact found in Columbia, originally thought to be an ancient religious symbol, was proven to be a small-scale model of an airplane, which flew when tested in a wind tunnel. Another artifact found in the Middle East turned out to be a primitive form of battery.
In Nazca, Peru, and elsewhere, huge drawings of animals (spider, horse) were discovered which can only be seen from an aircraft flying above them. But these drawings were known to have existed thousands of years ago. Who then drew them and why?
There are huge monoliths and structures, such as the pyramids in Egypt and Mexico, the Stonehenge in England and the huge statues of heads at Easter Island, which could not have been built except by people with exact knowledge of astronomy, mathematics, architecture and engineering, disciplines which did not yet exist at the time. Modern archeologists say primitive tools and equipment at their disposal couldn’t duplicate such structures!
In Mexico, Guatemala and the Yucatan, there lived the Mayan people with extraordinary knowledge of mathematics and the movements of the planets, stars and constellations. They knew about solar flares, eclipses and the alignment of planets. They had a calendar that calculated events spanning 26,000 years. Who taught them all these things?
The scholar and researcher Zecharia Sitchin, in his book “The 12th Planet,” presented evidence from ancient Sumerian legends and cuneiform writings that there were contacts with alien beings whom they considered to be gods. These beings came from the planet Nibiru.
In Mali, Africa, the Dogon Tribe celebrates the coming of the star Sirius every 50 years. This star is not visible to the human eye and was unknown to astronomers until the discovery of the telescope. They knew its exact path in the sky as well as its size and density. How did they get such knowledge? Who taught these things to them?
The elders of the Dogon tribe say that long, long ago, there appeared before them a group of beings from the sky. Such beings were amphibious. They called them Nommos. These alien beings taught them everything about the heavenly bodies. Were they hallucinating?
As Roy Stemman said in his book “Visitors from Outer Space,” “Even if every flying saucer so far can be proved to be more than misidentification, hallucination or deliberate fabrication, the next one may be for real.”
