are they here?
page will outline some of the most popular theories as to
why we are being visited by lifeforms from other
civilisations. The ideas put here are basically my own
thoughts on the situation. I discuss each of the theories
in turn but I feel that the issue is not black and white
and indeed the true picture is a combination of all the
One of the many reasons put forward as to why we are
being visited is that it is just a simple case of
curiosity. In a similar way as the first explorers of our
planet discovered new lands and new civilisations (e.g.
the Incas, Mayans and Indians), alien lifeforms who
stumble across us in their exploration of space may find
us an intriguing and interesting species in our own right.
This would tend to explain why there has been so many
sightings of various types of craft. Alien races, once
they had learned of our existence, would want to come and
observe us in a similar way that other civilisations on
Earth were observed.
However, this simple curiosity theory does not explain
some of the more 'disturbing' aspects of Alien encounters
such as abduction experiments and mutilations. This
problem can however be catered for by the fact that we
are probably being visited by more than one race of alien
civilisation, each having their own agenda.
Also, once an alien civilisation had discovered us maybe
various groups within that civilisation started visiting
us. A group of alien scientists would obviously have a
different agenda to a group of alien 'tourists' or even
Another popular theory put forward is that the Earth may
well contain certain minerals which are not present on
the alien planet. There has been some evidence of this in
various reports and claims of 'underground' alien bases
and sightings of craft seemingly taking samples of earth,
planet and even other lifeforms.
However I feel that this is probably the weakest of all
the theories as surely we would notice any great
reduction in any of our more common minerals. However it
may be the case that the aliens only require very sample
amounts of a particular substance for their purposes.
To warn and protect
One strong theme to of emerged from many of the abduction
and contactee tales is one kindness and protection. Many
abduction victims claim to have been shown mental images
of the destruction of Earth through neglect and war.
These images have been remarkably similar across a broad
spectrum of abduction victims each basically confirming
the same images of death and destruction.
The early contactee claims of the 1950's also had a
similar theme to them. Many contactees claim to have been
shown similar mental 'films' and to of been warned that
if the people of earth do not change their ways then the
earth will slowly destroy itself.
At first many of these claims seem strange if not absurd,
however it must be remembered that the modern UFO era
occurred very shortly after the first atomic bombs had
been detonated around the mid 1940. Now this may or may
not be 'proof' but it is certainly then a strange
Another fact worth remembering is that several of the
famous sighting cases have occurred around nuclear
installations, (Roswell was the worlds first nuclear
bomber Air Force Base), and seems to indicate that the
aliens are demonstrating that they could if desired 'take-out'
the nuclear arsenal of both East and West.
One of the more recent theories is that the aliens are
using the human race to conduct some form of genetic
experiment. This has come about fairly recently due to
the connection between animal mutilations and UFO's.
Many abduction victims claim that they were subjected to
strange experiments including the removal of semen from
men and eggs from women. Some women even claim that they
have been impregnated only to have the foetus removed
shortly after conception.
Various reasons have been put forward for these
experiments. They range from the theory that the alien
civilisation is dying and needs our genetic material to
continue to survive to the fact that they a crossbreeding
humans and aliens to make a new race. Indeed several
abduction victims claim to of encountered strange 'human-like'
children whilst on board the alien craft.
Another theory for this genetic experiment is that the
aliens are changing themselves so that they can live on
earth. The alien lifeforms as they stand might not be
able to survive on our planet for to long due to
atmosphere differences and our diseases.
This theory certainly seems very plausible when you take
into account the abduction stories, animal mutilations
and experiments. Several of the early contactees also
claim that the aliens 'were adapting themselves' so that
they could 'coexist' with humans.
The last theory that I will put forward for now is that
of the 'invasion' theory. Now this theory was put
together by early contactee claims. However, over the
years the theory has become less widely accepted.
The main reasoning against this theory is that any
civilisation that can traverse space and time should be
able to invade a civilisation that has been flying for
less that 100 years. Also if the invasion theory is
correct then surely we would have been invaded many years
ago and I would not be writing this.
Supporters of the invasion have recently started using
the Genetic theory to explain why have not yet been
invaded. They claim that the aliens can not exist as they
are at present without some genetic modification, and
hence the abduction, mutilation and experiments.
This could be plausible but again with all the abduction
cases there has been very little 'evil' intent from the
aliens. Only in one or two cases has any invasion
overtones been mentioned.
