There is a mathematical formula called the Drake equation. It was designed to find the probability that there is intelligent life out there beyond
this planet. The formula is rather complicated because it is based on a number of factors. It concludes that there is evolved intelligent life out
there in the universe besides this planet. It is currently estimated by scientists that there are approximately 50 planetoids in our Milky Way galaxy
alone which have the possibility to support carbon based life forms. And this is just an estimate for carbon based life forms. It is very possible
that there are other element based life forms out there. As of now, the very thought of non human life forms existing has just been a possibility or
a probability. I hope to prove in this paper that there is very much empirical evidence that extraterrestrials have been visiting out planet for
thousands of years.
First, let us take a look at the characteristics of the universe. According to the Big Bang theory, the universe is approximately
13.3 billion years old. The size of the Universe is calculated to be approximately 93 billion years across at the minimum. It is also theorized that
the Universe may be infinitely large. That is, there is no size to it. These are all just conjecture and theory. We currently do not have the
scientific instruments to measure out past 13 billion light years. The stars and suns only make up .4% of the universe. Normal matter, which is
anything with mass, makes up 3.6% of the universe. This would include and planets, moons, asteroids, etc. Cold, invisible dark matter makes up 22% .
This is only detectable by its gravitational effect on other objects. The remaining 74% of the universe consists of invisible dark energy.
Now that you see how large and vast the universe is, ask yourself if it is possible for life to exist on other inhabitable planets.
Does it now at the very least seem more possible? Since the universe is so large and so vast, mathematically, has to exist a probability that life
does exist out there. Now let us consider that others do exist out there. If they have had billions of years to evolve, then it is very likely that
they have advanced some sort of interstellar propulsion system. That is, if they exist, and over enough time, we will eventually run into one
another. It, mathematically, will happen after a certain amount of time. There are many credible witnesses who have had contact with such beings and
their interstellar starships. Take into account the character of the witnesses, the similarity of their stories, and what possible motives they
could have for even fabricating such stories. Most of the reports border on science fiction, but we must always remember--always-the credibility of
the witnesses. In fact, some of them told their stories, and paid the ultimate price. They have paid with their lives, and it is worth at the very
least to consider the possibilities.
There are three classifications of interaction with UFOs and their pilots. This system of classification was invented by Astronomy
Professor Dr. J Allen Hynek of Northwestern University. Hynek was scientific advisor to the United States Air Force on matters relating to UFOs from
1947 to 1969. After examining and interviewing many witnesses on matters related to UFOs, Hynek concluded that there were three different categories
of sightings and encounters. A close encounter of the first kind (CE1) involves a UFO in close proximity (500 feet) of the witness. A close
encounter of the second kind (CE2) involves a UFO that leaves markings on the ground, injury to human or animals, or any other kinds of physical
evidence. A close encounter of third kind (CE3) is either a close encounter of the first kind or second kind, along with a sighting/interaction of
the pilots or occupants of the craft.
Over the years there have been many well documented cases of CE1s. Many people have seen UFOs in the sky or something that they could
not rationally explain. It is very easy to discredit one witness without any sort of evidence, but what happens when many people witness an event
simultaneously? These cases of mass sightings are perfect examples of where an event is automatically proven to have existed because of multiple
experiences of the same event. It may very well to dismiss the claims of a single witness, but when thousands of people witness, and have video or
photographic evidence, it is not so easy to deny such claims.
There are several excellent examples for CE1s, but due to length restraints of this paper, I will talk about two such events. The
first event is known within the UFO community as “The Battle of Los Angeles.” On the night of February 25, 1942 a huge UFO (some claim that there
were several objects) was seen floating over Culver City, California. Some reports described the object as dome shaped and around 100 feet in
diameter. Other reports said that there were several crafts flying in a V formation down the coastline. This event was approximately 3 months after
the attack on Pearl Harbor had occurred, so the country was on high defensive alert. Everyone thought that this was another attack from the Japanese.
Because of the war situation, the military proceeded to attempt to shoot down the aircraft. They directly hit the craft(s) with 1500 round of anti
aircraft missiles and shrapnel, but the craft was unaffected. The craft remained stationary while being bomber for over an hour. It then moved at a
slow pace (300 mph) into Santa Monica, California. It was reported by various witnesses that the craft has some sort of shield or force field around
it which would not allow any of the direct hits to penetrate into the craft itself.
The bombing was witnessed by hundreds of thousands of residents and civilians, as well as numerous government agents, including
soldiers, those who shot at it, and other personnel. The object(s) then floated out over the Pacific Ocean and disappeared into the horizon. Six
people ended up dying from falling shrapnel and debris and one person died of a heart attack from the traumatic stress of the event. There are
several declassified documents which actually state that these were alien craft. Also, the Los Angeles Times newspaper took several photographs of
the event. One can clearly see that there was a huge object in the air as it was being hit with missiles. While the Battle of Angeles might be known
by residents of the area where the flyover took place, it is an event not widely known in other parts of the country or the world.
Another notable CE1 mass sighting occurred over the White House in Washington, DC on July 27, 1952 around 3:00 AM. This event was
actually photographed. It is known within the UFO community as “The Washington Merry-Go-Round”. There were 12 objects which flew in a pattern
directly over the White House. “Two F-94 jets from the Air Defense Command Squadron at Newcastle, Del. – capable of 600 miles an hour – were
sent up at 11:25 p.m. near Andrews but could not overtake them before they disappeared. He saw another steady white light about 10 miles east of Mt.
Vernon but that, too, faded before he got there. He said the lights later no more than two minutes (Washington Daily News).
Many times these crafts leave behind some sort of physical evidence. Usually this will include burn marks on the ground for where a
significantly hot surface has touched the ground. It has also been reported that sometimes these craft are so hot that they will melt sand into
glass. The reason why these UFOs are usually hot has been explained as a rise in temperature from radiation. While the author of this paper believe
that crop circles are nothing more than a manmade hoaxes, it has been reported that UFOs are seen landing in crop fields and mysteriously leave
patterns behind, or sometimes very intricate and complex hieroglyphs. It has also been reported that sometimes these crafts will drip molten clumps
of metal off of them. This can only be explained as some sort of byproduct of an exotic technology. There are many cases where these UFOs leave
traces of physical evidence and such evidence makes it even harder to deny that these craft are visiting planet Earth.
A good case to look at where physical evidence was left behind (CE2) occurred on the English military base RAF Bentwaters. Bentwaters
is well known to house and possess nuclear weapons. There are many events which UFOs have interacted with military bases and their personnel. These
are a multitude of excellent examples of close encounters to cite, because the observers are trained and professionals. It is not easy to take
eyewitness testimony lightly from such individual observers. The actually interactions between the UFOs and the Bentwaters base took place in the
adjacent Rendelsham Forest which is at the east most part of the military instillation. Over three nights on December 26 through 28, 1980, UFOs were
seen shooting blue beams of light toward the storage of facilities of these nuclear weapons. The nuclear weapons then were affected to where they
would no longer work. It is a wonder why these UFOs would even care to disable these weapons. The objects appeared on the ground on two different
nights. “Potentially, there was another life form seen – this is an unpopular truth. These events were of extreme defense significance to not
only Her Majesty’s government, but also this (United States) government as well and they are still shrouded in secrecy”, reported Larry Warren,
who was stationed on the base at the time.
Colonel Charles Halt was at the chief officer on duty at the time. He and a team of three men decided to investigate the lights on
foot. When they entered the forest they saw many lights moving in the trees. They then came upon a small clearing in the woods and clearly sighted
an object “being metallic in appearance and triangular in shape, approximately two to three meters across the base and approximately three meters
high. The object itself had a pulsing red light on top and a bank of blue lights underneath” (Halt). One of the soldiers saw a triangular landing
gear on the craft which folded up at it took off and maneuvered through the trees to the outer edge of the forest. As it took off into the air, all
the animals at a neighboring farm went crazy. About an hour later, the light was seen once again at the back gate of Bentwaters, this time at a
The following morning, three depressions were seen 1 ½” deep and 7” in diameter where they object has been seen on the ground.
Later that night the area was evaluated for radiation. It was found that there were very high levels of radiation present and that the highest
readings were where the object has parked its landing gears. One the second night, the light was seen once again just beyond the east gate. It
appeared pulsing and started “shooting off particles and then broke into five separate white objects and then disappeared. Immediately thereafter,
three star-like objects were noticed in the sky, two to the north, and one to the south, all of which were about 10 degrees off the horizon. The
objects moved rapidly in sharp angular movements and displayed red, green and blue lights. The objects to the north appeared to be elliptical through
an 8-12 power lens. They then turned into full circles. The objects to the north remained in the sky for an hour of more. The object to the south
was visible for two or three hours and beamed down a stream of light from time to time. Numerous individuals, including the undersigned, witnessed
the activities” (Halt).
As far as they were concerned, they thought that is was some sort of downed airplane in distress. What is awesome about this UFO case
is that Colonel Halt carried a handheld audio recorder with him as they went out the east gate of the base and into the woods. Halt and his crew
eventually see the red light again, about a quarter mile out. The light then disappears. A couple minutes later it reappears at approximately the
same location, about a quarter mile away in the woods. Halt states in his live recording of the event, “All the animals have gotten quiet now”
(Halt). This was right after the object reappears or lit up. What is interesting to note, is that there are many other cases of UFO sightings, where
there is an eerie silence where all animals cease to make noise. It is as if they are trying to hide from the UFOs or are trying not to make
Within a couple of more minutes, the red light starts moving slowly toward the team. Halt starts to become a little more scared.
“There is something very very strange” (Rendelsham). He then tells his men to turn their flashlights off. It then moved to the right and the
left. At this point, the craft was now about 200-300 yards from the soldiers. Halt then decides to go further into the wood to investigate. “It
looks like an eye winking at you, still moving from side to side and when you put the star scope on it, it almost burns your eyes” (Rendelsham).
What Halt is saying is that when he looked through the night vision goggles, it just appears as one big white mass which blanked out his whole night
vision. This could mean that the craft was very hot. The Rendelsham Forest UFO case is one of the most well known cases. It is also taken very
seriously because of the credibility of the witnesses as well as the serious threat which was presented by unintended visitors over nuclear
installations. The case was very well documented in real time with the tape recording of the event and also there was trace evidence left behind at
the landing site.
There have been numerous reports of police officers reporting and seeing something in the sky or on the ground. One such report was
made by Officer Lonnie Zamora of Socorro, New Mexico during the evening of April 24, 1964. Officer Zamora spotted a speeding car and gave chase to
it. He came up to a little road and heard a large roar or blast. “He immediately turned off the road and saw a white, egg-shaped vehicle, like a
car standing on end. One or two men he believed to be occupants of the vehicle were standing along side” (Kantor 75). They were described as
wearing all white cover all jumpsuits. One of the occupants seemed to be startled and jumped when he saw Zamora approaching in his police car.
Zamora then pulled the car down to where he thought he had spotted the overturned car. He then left his car on foot down into a deep gully which was
at the bottom of the valley and the up over another small hill where he thought he had spotted the vehicle. He then heard several large thumps as if
someone had slammed a car door several times while he was heading up over the small hill toward the vehicle. He took a few more steps toward the deep
ravine and came upon an elongated oval shaped craft with four legs coming off the bottom. It was about the size of a small car. At this point, there
was a large roar and blue flame came out of the bottom of the object. Zamora hit the ground thinking it was an explosion. Zamora then realized that
the sound was coming from the craft, which did not explode. Quickly he returned to his feet and ran toward his car. He turned back around toward the
craft and saw it had risen about 20 feet off the ground, but it was still in the ravine. The craft then silently traveled about the same distance off
the ground and eventually disappeared into horizon of the desert. Zamora then called dispatch and frantically reported what he saw. A fellow
patrolman came out to meet Zamora and they scanned the scene for any evidence. They found small footprints, four angled marks in the sand where the
UFO had landed. Also several patches of burnt scorch marks on the grass and brush were found radiation samples were taken and levels were extremely
high. Zamora and his fellow officer made plaster casts of where they landing gears of the UFO had been implanted in the ground.
Many times the alien occupants of these UFOs have been spotted either outside of their spaceships or seen through portholes or
windows within. “There are the standard grays, but there also “Nordics”, “reptilians,” “insectoids,” and robed, or hooded, tall
beings” (Jacobs 93). Reports also have stated that they appear as very angelic beings and all the way to grotesquely looking, demonic, and having a
very menacing appearance. There is a wide array of reports of different types of beings. It is interesting to note, that for whatever reason, the
majority of the reports describe often that the creatures appear as humanoid and mostly bipedal. That is, they walk on two legs; have two arms, a
head, and an abdomen region just as the human body. Perhaps the humanoid form could be considered as a universal body type. This is just a theory or
conjecture. From the multitude of different reports of actually seeing these extraterrestrials in the flesh, it appears that there could possibly
being one hundred or more different races of beings which could in fact be visiting this planet under very secretive conditions.
Of course it is rather difficult to take all these cases into account as truth but nonetheless many credible witnesses have reported
dealing with a tremendous variety of visitors under many different levels of interaction. The levels range from merely seeing the creatures around or
in a craft, telepathic or verbal communications, all the way to abduction experiences. Former United States Army Sergeant, Clifford Stone reported at
the Disclosure UFO Conference on May 9, 2001 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC that when he “got out in 1989, we had cataloged 57
different species...you have individuals which could walk upon us…you wouldn’t even notice the difference…you have three types of the
Grays…the entities that we did catalog were humanoid. You would expect that life that evolved on some other planets would take on some other type
of being so to speak. Not necessarily look humanoid or bipedal like we are” (Aliens). Clifford Stone is a highly decorated soldier with a top
secret clearance. For him to come out and talk about such information is very dangerous for himself and his family. He realizes the risks involved
for relaying the information he learned while in the military. Many former military personnel who talk of aliens end up meeting mysterious ends, as
you will see later in this paper. It is worthwhile that these reports cited within this paper are merely a cross section of a vast number of reports
of these alien beings.
Now we come into the details of CE3s. Now this is where the paper starts to get pretty crazy. Just bear in mind the witnesses to
these events and the motives they would have to tell their stories. If these craft are visiting then someone must be intelligently guiding them. It
is only a natural conclusion that eventually these pilots would show themselves. CE3s can be described as any sort of interaction between a human
observer and alien entities. Of course, these stories are very difficult to fathom. It is one thing to see a light in the sky, but is a different
situation entirely when one finally makes physical contact with these beings. From my research, one thing appears apparently obvious, that usually
when one is involved in a CE3 experience they are usually range from a neutral to a negative experience. It seems that positive experiences with
these beings are rare. Many times stories of abductions seem more often than not to be scientific research experiment conducted on unwilling human
subjects. Many times the interactions are nonchalant where once the visitors are witnesses they return to their craft quickly and fly off.
Within the UFO community it is widely rumored that in 1954 President Eisenhower signed a treaty with a species of outer space
visitors, the Grays from Orion. This came to be known as the Greada Treaty. In exchange for technology we would allow a certain number of citizens
to be unknowingly abducted yearly by the Grays. They would remain unharmed and their memories would be erased before returning to Earth.
Unfortunately, it is believed that the aliens eventually disregarded the treaty and started abducting more that the bargained amount. If this theory
is true, then we truly have been sold out by our own government to the fullest extent. There have been a few government insiders and researches that
have related the Greada Treaty story and verified its validity. One former government insider is William Milton Cooper. In his book, Behold A Pale
Horse, Cooper states about the Greada Treaty that by “1955 it became obvious that the aliens had deceived Eisenhower and had broken the treaty….
It was suspected that the aliens were not submitting a complete list of human contacts and abductees to the Majesty Twelve and it was suspected that
not all abductees had been returned” (209). It is interested to note that William Cooper was killed by police on raid on his home on November 5,
2001. Cooper was wanted for tax evasion and other charges. Many believe that his telling of these alien creatures and speaking out against the
United States government led to his ultimate demise.
There are numerous reports of actions involving physical interaction with non human creatures, but the story I would like to relate is
that of a man named Phil Schneider. Schneider was a geologist and structural engineer for the United States government. He was a lead engineer on
constructing deep underground military bases (D.U.M.Bs) in the United States. You can find the videos of his lectures on YouTube and his name is all
over the internet, so please look for yourself. Some of these bases are the size of whole cities. They exist under every state in the union, and not
only in this country, but also all around the world. The technology they use to this is just unreal and seems very farfetched and futuristic. It is
actually possible to bore miles of tunnels in a single day. Some of the machines that bore the tunnels are able to melt the sides into glass.
Schneider and others have talked of an intricate network of underground monorails and trains which are able to travel at high rates of speed from
underground base to underground base.
It was August 1979 and Phil had already helped constructed a few underground bases for the US government. They were drilling tunnels
to add an expansion to the underground base in Dulce, New Mexico. Apparently the drilling equipment had failed so Schneider and a Green Beret soldier
went down the tunnel to see why it had malfunctioned. Soot and a rancid stench rose from the cavern. Phil strapped his pistol to his side and him
along with a Green Beret soldier walked down the tunnel. As they went down the tunnel they encountered several large Grey alien beings. Immediately
Schneider fired his pistol, killing two of the large Grey aliens. Apparently they had stumbled across an ancient underground alien military base!
“In the process, one of them did this…he just kind of waved his hand in front of his chest, and the next thing I know this blue beam hit me and
just literally opened me up like a fish..burnt my fingers right off of me…it was some form of electrical force because kind of like being hit by a
lightning bolt, burned off…I didn’t remember much…There was a Green Beret that was right behind me, that risked his life, in fact he
died…shoved me back in the basket, hit the button and took me up. I wouldn’t be alive talking to you today if it wasn’t for him. I’m forever
indebted. He lost his life. Sixty six secret service agents, green berets, black berets-crack troop- lost their lives…There is a war under there
and I’m talking dead serious that’s been going on since that time, since late august 1979 our military, the Russian military, basically the
militaries of the world have been in constant conflict with the outer space aliens. The small grey, the large grey, the reptilian, the whole thing.
There are 11 distinct races of aliens” (The man).
What is interesting is that when you watch the videos of Phil Schneider giving his UFOs lectures (after he quit the black projects, he
was a guest lecture speaker at several conferences on UFOs), you notice that he has fingers missing on his left hand. Also, a couple times he can be
seen in various other taped speaking events where he lifts up his shirt. It appears that he has a large scar running vertically down the middle of
his chest. Schneider claimed that these injuries were from the weapon the Grey alien that shot him in the firefight below Dulce, NM. The event
became known as the “Dulce War”. Phil had stated in one of his lecture that he had 13 attempts on his life from various apparent government
agents. Schneider was found dead in his Wilsonville, Oregon apartment on January 17, 1996. His dead was initially ruled a heart attack, but later it
was confirmed that he was “with piano wire still wrapped around his neck” (Branton). It has since been theorized that Schneider was actually
murdered for saying too much. He had even stated in his lectures that he was breaking a secrecy oath and faced imprisonment or worse for the
information which he was sharing with the general public in his lectures. In the author of this paper’s mind, Schneider was another casualty of war
which is being fought to keep secrets from the general population. There have been many other researchers and insiders which have met similar fates.
Mysterious and unexplained deaths, suicides, and accidents are more commonplace in the UFO community than one would wish to believe.
So how is it possible to prove that the alien visitors do in fact exist? The obvious answer is that it is not. Until they land here
and shed their secretive ways, all we have is blanked out government documents and personal experiences of observers to rely on. Many times any
evidence recovered from landing or crashed UFOs are covertly collected by government agencies to hide their existence from the public. But when you
weigh the vastness of the universe along with the numerous amounts of sightings of UFOs and interactions with their pilots, it appears at the very
least that it is possible. The possibility is real and definite. That is what I have hoped to prove with this paper, the possibility exists. I
could have written this paper to prove that there is a possibility that God exists. It would be the same argument. It is more a proof of empirical
faith that a scientific thesis. When you factor in all the mysterious deaths of scientists, researchers, and the government insiders which come to
light to share secretive information, the realm of science fiction starts to have an eerie ring of truth to it.
Consider the witnesses, their motives, and ultimate outcomes. I have repeated this throughout the paper because it is the basis of
truth. It is the only basis we have; the morality and the characters of the witnesses. Also consider how so many people mysteriously die when they
relate their classified information. Actions speak louder than words. Sometimes people will kill to hide words and information. It seems that many
different factions from all over the world are going through great lengths to keep aliens in the realm of science fiction that science fact. Perhaps
the threat from aliens does not come from the aliens themselves, but rather the humans which have taken a duty to keep their existence a secret. The
secretive nature of these matters only leads me to believe that something very nefarious is amuck. This alien agenda has been going on for many years
if it is true. People have died to bring proof to light to a subject which received much ridicule from the scientific community and from society in
general. As Schneider said there is “a war going on”. The war is for information. It is a war of the mind and it is on. The alien question is
not to be taken lightly.
So it logical to wonder why the government is hiding these alien affairs from us. Why are being kept in the dark? Maybe if we were
to find out that there are other advanced cultures, even more so than us, it would truly affect the human condition. We would lose our sense of
uniqueness in the universe. Could we handle the truth, or would we globally have a violent reaction? Would we want to kill the visitors with nuclear
weapons? It is very possible we would lose that special feeling that we are the highest most intellectual beings on the food chain. Once we
discovered how insignificant we were it is hard to predict our reaction and the ultimate outcome. Perhaps it is better that we do not know about
these visitors. Maybe we could not handle or fathom their existence. After all, ignorance is bliss. If the status quo were to be ever upset, could
we handle it? Do we have the ability to share the universe with others, even if they were always here? Perhaps we are not yet ready, either
spiritually or psychologically, for their appearance. We could easily be perceived as primitive animals by cultures which have had millions or
billions of years of advancement on us. Either way, in the scheme of things, we are either brilliantly unique to the universe, or just another race
on a rock circling a star. It is only right that if we are being visited, we be allowed to know our true ranking in the universe, whether we can
handle it or not. The truth is hard to handle and it was never meant to be easy. Either way, once you start to research the alien question, you find
that there certainly are events which cannot be denied, which have taken place. They have been witnesses by farmers to doctors and policemen. People
of every age, education level, and background have reported interactions with non human entities. They have been sighted singularly and in mass. If
just one of these events can be proven true, then we have been lied to and that means History is a lie. Perhaps what is written in the annals of
history is not truth, rather an easy palatable fabrication. This is where reality and fiction have been blurred together.
