Great questions! Here's my take on them.
1) Aliens have not visited Earth
I believe that it is certainly possible, but I have never seen any evidence that gives me reason to believe it happened. The idea that this one little
planet is the only one out of a mind-blowingly large universe to develop life, is not an idea that sits comfortably with me.
The world is full of lots of interesting clues, from seemingly impossible works of science or architecture, through to art and records.
The problem is that we are a very ingenious and symbolic race. When we create art, symbolism and stylism runs through it. When we view art, we can
often find symbolism in it, regardless of the intention of the originator. Symbolism is a subjective issue that draws on our own beliefs at that time.
Our stylised symbolic "spaceman" may have been a stylised symbol of a shaman or king in ceremonial robes for an ancient artist. We judge
architecture by the same standards of our own time. When we see a building that we would need cranes and power tools to create, we forget that the
ancient architect was just as clever as us, and had their own resources to draw on that we just don't know about - from forgotten tools and
understanding of mechanics, to vast quantities of time and labour.
2) Terrorism and global warming are our main threats
We are our own worst threat. I do not feel well versed enough to comment on global warming, but if it is a natural part of Earth's cycle, should be
really view it as a "threat" or just part of our environment that we need to adapt to?
3) There is no conspiracy for one world government or depopulation
Unified government is certainly something that some may push towards politically. Whether it would work or not in the way most people suggest is
another matter. I could more plausibly see the EU trying to expand and maintain the member states/central oversight model. I think there would be too
many concessions asked from the major players both inside and outside the EU for it to expand world wide, unless there are some world-level
4) History began 6000 years ago; there were no civilizations like Atlantis or Lemuria prior to that
I think that history began long before the Earth, let alone humanity. If you mean the history of the human race, then I think there is plenty of
archeological history that dates before 6,000 years. History is only ever an issue of perspective. Tomorrow isn't history to us, but it will be to
someone at a later date.
I would not be surprised if a civilisation is one day found and identified as the basis for Atlantis, or even Lemuria though I think that was based on
a scientific observation to explain some findings, that can now be explained by the theory of continental drift. I'm sceptical of there being a
super-advanced humanity of the kind so often discussed now, but who knows?
5) We went to the moon, nothing special was hidden there
I believe that man reached the moon. I certainly believe man has the ability and technology to do so, though I wouldn't be too surprised to find out
that the moon landings were faked to make sure the US won the race.
I quite liked the idea posted earlier that the footage was a mix of real and fake, either to hide something or even just to bolster the strength of
the claim. Having said that, I do not currently believe that anything "special" was found and subsequently hidden.
