Understandably a lot of people would like more solid proof or evidence that these events have occured throughout our history. I too wish that
evidence and proper credit would be given with all accounts to make things much easier. Most have names documented with the sightings and a little
searching on the net should yield good results for sources on your quest for the truth. No one can give this proof perfectly, unfortunately. I will
attempt to give some of it anyway:
To start with here is a link to an art exhibit of some ancient Sumerian finds. While not definitively E.T., they are provocative none-the-less,
Here is a bit of history of assumed E.T.s in our current culture:
The Greys, also known as Roswell aliens (eyes) -- Zetas (zero point) -- and Reticulians (reptiles, snakes, coiling, spiraling DNA), are
extraterrestrial life forms that allegedly appear in modern UFO conspiracy theories and other UFO-related paranormal phenomena. They make up
approximately 75% of all aliens reported in the US, 20% of all aliens reported in Mainland Europe, and 12% of all aliens reported in Britain. In
American popular culture they have replaced little green men as the most typical extraterrestrial life form experienced in abduction and in general
seen in eye-witness accounts.
Typically, Greys are described as being approximately 4 feet tall, with grey (sometimes blue-grey/green-grey) skin. Their body is typically described
as being elongated, and lacking in muscular definition. Their legs are shorter and jointed differently than one would expect in a human, giving them
an apparently awkward gait. Their arms often reach down to their knees, and some accounts give them three digits, or three digits and a thumb on each
hand. They have a bulbous, hairless head supported by a thin neck, which is dominated by large black lidless eyes. They typically have small flat
noses, small mouths and small ears lacking a pinna. In some cases, Greys are said to have slit-like nostrils on a flat face.
Some accounts have Greys wearing tight neutral colored uniform-like jumpsuits. Other reports have them appearing to be naked. In most cases, clothed
Greys have no determinable gender and naked Greys have no visible external genitals.
Although the exact appearance of the Grey has varied with time and media, the overall concept of "a thin diminutive grey figure with a bulbous bald
head, large almond shape eyes, and minimal facial features", has existed in popular culture for over 100 years. Grey-like beings have appeared in
numerous science fiction stories from the late 19th century onwards; including H.G. Wells' Of a Book Unwritten, The Man of the Year Million; in which
Wells writes about the hypothesis that the increasing industrialization of society would lead to humans developing into Grey like beings with shrunken
bodies and enlarged brains, and his 1901 book The First Men in the Moon in which he describes the moon dwelling Selenites as being short, grey skinned
creatures, with high foreheads, no nose, and bulging eyes who walked with a strange gait due to their oddly articulated legs.
The concept was continued in comics and science fiction magazines into the early 20th century, including such works as David H. Keller's The
Conquerors, which was serialized in the Wonder stories, starting in 1929 December.
In the wake of the Kenneth Arnold sightings, the 1950s saw an increased public awareness of ETH and Flying saucer in America; leading to a
corresponding increase in the appearance of Grey-like creatures in cinema and television.
Until the 1960s, the image of the Grey primarily existed in popular fiction, but this began to change in 1965 when the Boston Traveler published the
purportedly true story of abductees Betty and Barney Hill. The story included details from a hypnosis session, conducted a year earlier by Dr.
Benjamin Simon, in which the Hills described being taken aboard a pancake-like craft by small hairless men with no noses and slanted eyes that wrapped
around to the sides of their heads.
Coincidentally on the 10th of February 1964; 12 days prior to the Hill's undergoing hypnosis, the science fiction series The Outer Limits ran an
episode entitled "The Bellero Shield", which featured a hairless, noseless alien with a bulbous head and 'wrap-around eyes'.
However, these similarities of greys to the TV episode being are disputed, mainly because the TV being is as tall as a human, does not have a very big
head, his eyes are not that big, has no black eyes, and has a glowing body. Furthermore, Betty Hill maintained that she had not seen the Outer Limits,
and said that it was unlikely that her husband had seen the episode, because he would either have been working, or performing community activities,
during the series' time slot.
In 1968, Greys became associated with the Zeta Reticuli system, after amateur astronomer Marjorie Fish compared a Star Map drawn by Betty Hill to
astronomical charts, and determined that the twelve stars depicted on the map showed the aliens home to be a planet in the Zeta Reticuli system,
situated approximately 39 light years from Earth. This lead to Greys sometimes being referred to as 'Zetas' or 'Reticulians' in popular culture.
In 1977, Director Steven Spielberg chose Greys as the alien protagonist for his film Close Encounters of the Third Kind. The Greys have since become
the archetypal image of an alien for many UFO believers and science fiction fans.
During the early 1980s Greys were linked to the alleged crash landing of a flying saucer in Roswell New Mexico, in 1947, by a number of publications
which contained statements from witnesses who claimed to have seen the US military handling a number of unusually proportioned, bald, child-sized
corpses. The witnesses claimed that the corpses had over-sized heads and slanted eyes - but scant other facial features - during and after the
