ATS members are split whether we have been contacted by an alien species.

On one hand there is the argument we have been visited.

The Roswell UFO Incident involves the recovery of materials near Roswell, New Mexico, USA, on July 8, 1947, which since the late 1970s has become the subject of intense speculation, rumor, and questioning. There are widely divergent views on what actually happened and passionate debate about what evidence can be believed. The United States military maintains that what was actually recovered was debris from an experimental high-altitude surveillance balloon belonging to a classified program named "Mogul." Many UFO proponents maintain that a crashed alien craft and bodies were recovered, and that the military engaged in a cover-up. The incident has turned into a widely known pop culture phenomenon, making the name Roswell synonymous with UFOs. It ranks as one of the most publicized and controversial UFO incidents ever.

This case is still just speculation.


The OSU SETI program gained fame on August 15, 1977 when Jerry Ehman, a project volunteer, witnessed a startlingly strong signal received by the telescope. He quickly circled the indication on a printout and scribbled the phrase “Wow!” in the margin. This signal, dubbed the Wow! signal, is considered by some[who?] to be the most likely candidate from an artificial, extraterrestrial source ever discovered, but it has not been detected again in several additional searches.

The signal not been detected again, one popular theorey is that the signal was a snippet of chat between two alien space craft.

Computer glitch? Or real sign of intelligent life.


There are some that beleive humanity has been visited, a long time ago, when these beings landed on Earth the humans saw them as gods because of the technology they posessed.

Did these aliens create earths religion? Have they left? Are there species long extinct?


If an advacned civilisation capabe of space travel came across earth would they bother studying us for 1000's of years?

We humans do not try to make contact with ants, we do not try and teach them our technology.

We do study ants, do they study us for science purposes only?

These are the only reasons i can see of why they wouldnt make contact if they saw our planet.

I personally beleive we have been in contact, when you look at what edgar mitchell and buzz aldrin has to say then im convinced.

Can you please change your quote to regular quote tags. The writing is too small and it's stretching the screen! It's too difficult to read mate!
