First off, I dont know whether aliens exist or not, but I find it absurd that people make so many claims about aliens when its never been proven they
even exist, and I find it absurd how much effort people put into 'researching' it. Because I was one of those people.
Think about all the conspiracy theorists in the world. Sure lots of them are schizophrenic, lots are fantasy-prone individuals who believe anything,
some are propagandists and some are just dumb... but many are intelligent people with journalism skills who expose real world conspiracies, like
corruption and murder cover-ups and such. Imagine how many crimes people could get away with if that talent is wasted on something that might not even
be real? You would want to distract as many people as possible with something frivolous, distract them from real issues.
UFOlogy is chock full of believers. They are filled with religious fervour, it has become like a cult. Ancient Astronaut theorists believe in things
just as absurd as religious beliefs yet claim religions are wrong. So I thing aliens are sort of like the next era of religion, something that is
controlling populations. Not to say that religion is inherently wrong, but it was always USED to control masses. I think aliens could work the same
way. Like I mentioned in the Watchmen, fake aliens were used as a 'common enemy' to unite the world under one government...
Not everyone considers aliens on a daily basis, but more people believe in them now than ever before in history. When I was little I didnt believe I
KNEW, because tv told me so. So many child cartoon has aliens. It becomes normalised.
When you think about it, there is a vast history of making people believe in aliens. Roswell is full of psychological warfare... think about how the
army invited a reporter to the crash scene. HOW DOES THAT MAKE MILITARY SENSE? There are 3 options: it was a secret air force project, it was a secret
soviet project, it was extra-terrestrial. No matter which, they would not have wanted to publicise that. But they deliberately did, gave the man a
firearm against protocol, published an article in the newspaper, then later retracted it and claimed they never said that. That is classic
psychological warfare, it would cause people to believe in an alien cover-up. It seems to me if they actually wanted to cover up aliens they would
have done so. Sorry for writing so much.
