You raise a very important and logical question, “why have we not seen the aliens”.
My first reaction would be to say, ‘but have we not seen them but we don’t recognize them as an alien life form’?
I personally believe, based on what I have learned from my earliest education on, thru my years of reading and research in the hard copy world of
libraries and magazines, thru attending lectures by those recognized as the best minds in astrobiology, archeology, anthropology, astronomy,
astrophysics and the other sciences that mankind, although a product of evolution did not alone evolve to the point we are at today.
Here is where I wander seemingly into a somewhat gray area, seemingly walking a fine line between the beliefs of the religious and my belief in
I do not believe in creation as described in the religious text, but rather evolution with outside interference or manipulation, a twist genetically
if you might.
So this drives me to believe my outside influence on man came to this planet from another part of our universe, whether on a rock, a snowball, or on
another sort of UFO as a vehicle.
I believe it very presumptuous of man to believe he is the only game in town.
Rather than bore you with other my numerous reasons supporting my belief in UFOs, I will simply tell you, and this is the first time in years I have
openly discussed this with anyone. When I was 17 years old I believe I had an encounter of the 3rd kind with an entity or being which I did not
recognize as being from earth.
In answer to questions of others before, I was not using drugs, alcohol or any other sort of stimulants and I was wide awake and functioning normally.
Born with gun in my hand and growing up on a farm I can assure you it was not any form of wildlife or farm animal.
I was 17 and the incident was quickly forgotten in lieu of girls, college and other important activities of a seventeen year old. Although my parents
have long ago passed, I am still searching thru the remaining boxes of their belongings hoping to find a copy of the police report. I long ago
attempted to find a copy thru the police authorities, but I found that documents from that era were never microfiched and only kept for a certain
period of time and then destroyed.
The facts according to my memory are: I had told my parents I would arrive at the county fairgrounds to meet them at 11pm. The drive was easily no
more than 20 minutes and as I drove along a gravel country road, as most teenagers I was listening to the radio.
Suddenly ahead of me in the car lights I saw ‘something’ in the road, directly in front of my car. My mind responded to the proximity of the image
and I locked up the brakes and slid to a stop.
In those seconds as my card slid, I will never forget the image, burned in my mind to this day of an entity or being. It was approximately three feet
tall or less, silver, shiny and glowing in appearance with a head too large for the body and eyes too large for the head.
Anticipating the collision I braced both hands on the steering wheel and my mind went crazy thinking I was really in a lot of trouble as I was about
to hit something, or someone.
Suddenly my car was stopped dead in its tracks causing me to strike the steering wheel with my chest in a thump. I immediately got out of the car and
walked to the front, the car lights still on with the engine off and clearly saw ‘something’ which I did not recognize sort of skitter into the
weeds along the side of the road and disappear. I recall some noise in the weeds caused by its departure.
I stood there in the road for a minute blinking and wondering what to do as I believed I might have just hit someone. I called out for a moment to see
if anyone answered, with no response.
I was scared #less and decided the best thing to do was get back into the car and go tell my parents.
When I arrived my parents said I was pale as if I had seen a ghost and were very concerned as it was almost midnight. They wanted to know where had I
been and what took me so long? It was in fact only a 20 minute drive and it had taken me almost an hour.
Fact: I reported the encounter to my parents, who contacted the sheriff’s deputies at the fairgrounds. The deputies interviewed me, inspected my car
recording two apple sized scuffs on the front and top of the chrome car bumper in the dust, and an investigation of the site on the county road was
performed by two deputies, my father and some other interested parties the following morning. The site investigation revealed two skid marks of
undetermined length in the gravel and seemingly a pathway thru the horse weeds along the side of the road. The most interesting portion of the site
visit by two deputies, my father and 2 or 3 of his friends was 3 interesting indentations in a triangular shape in the pasture alongside the road and
a small stream. Also, all there seemed to think the ground seemed a little scorched.
Thus I believe in UFOs because I believe I had contact with something not of this earth..
