Well I wouldn't describe myself as particularly knowlegeable in the field of ufology, but to answer your question:
In history, there are pictures of ufos. There are several pieces of christian art which have obvious saucers on them, but these are mostly background items only some people notice.
There were several ufos in history but not as many as there are now. In the 16th(not sure) century a red light was seen flying over a field in the night. In the morning there was a crop cicle there. It was cescribed as a "mowing demon".
"Grey's" though, are not the field of ufology I know much about.

I am, and have been for some years, very interested in the subject of aliens and UFOs. Read a few books, read a few web sites, and I have a questions now. I have looked around and can't seem to find the answers I'm looking for.
Bascially, I am at the point of being pretty convinced that aliens and UFOs are a reality. I would like to know certain things that would elevate my "pretty convinced" to "almost certain"
Here are the questions, and thank you in advance.
1) are aliens portrayed the same throughout all cultures and most importantly before mass media.
If it were the case that they were, then this would really make me a lot more convinced that aliens are a reality. If, however, aliens are mainly portrayed differently in ( for example ) Japan or Russia then it would make me less convinced because I would feel that it's obviously a product of mind/culture rathar than something real. Were aliens to be portrayed as small and grey throughout history and all cultures then that would lend a very high level of credability to aliens being a reality.
