Let's cut to the chase: if you can provide evidence that your
alien really exists and I accept your evidence then I'll change from a skeptic
about the reality of aliens to one of acceptance. But let me be up front in so many words: to me alleged aliens exist only in the mind of those
claiming they're real. Of course, it goes without saying that I also do not accept even one case of alleged alien abductions. I'm familiar with the
literature which I've been reading since 1958. Aliens can be compared to religions since they are both the creation of the mind. Whitley Strieber
did more harm than good when his book "COMMUNION" featured an image of what is now claimed to be the de rigueur alien.
Below is a summarized "history" slightly edited by me of how aliens were created. Amazingly, until Strieber's alien image which became the icon of
aliens, all of the other aliens went the way of all the gods of ancient history such as the Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Mayan (as representative of all
Central and South American gods). So, similarly, even though all of the other gods are gone and we have Jesus's image, all of the other aliens are
gone and we have Strieber's. The mind is a wonderful thing but when it is misused, such as it is by unquestioning believers, somethings become
"written in stone".
Can you imagine the wonders that humankind would have accomplished if skeptics and atheists had been dominant instead of believers who have stunted
humankind's growth? Oh, to dream.
Grey alienFrom Wikipedia
The science fiction writer H. G. Wells, in the article "Man of the Year Million" in 1893, describes humanity transformed into a race of grey-skinned
beings, stunted and with big heads. In his 1901 book The First Men in the Moon, Selenites, or natives of the Moon, are described as having grey skin,
big heads, large black eyes and wasp stings.
In 1933, the Swedish novelist Gustav Sandgren, using the pen name Gabriel Linde, published a science fiction novel called Den okända faran (The
Unknown Danger), where he describes a race of extraterrestrials: "[...] the creatures did not resemble any race of humans. They were short, shorter
than the average Japanese, and their heads were big and bald, with strong, square foreheads, and very small noses and mouths, and weak chins. What was
most extraordinary about them were the eyes – large, dark, gleaming, with a sharp gaze.
In 1965, newspaper reports of the Betty and Barney Hill abduction brought Greys to international attention.
During the early 1980s Greys were linked in popular culture to the alleged crash landing of a flying saucer in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947, by a
number of publications which contained statements from individuals who claimed to have seen the U.S. military handling a number of unusually
proportioned, bald, child-sized beings. These individuals claimed that the beings had over-sized heads and slanted eyes—but scant other facial
features—during and after the incident.
In 1987, popular novelist Whitley Strieber published the book "COMMUNION" (it refers to a catholic ritual and Strieber is catholic), in which he
describes a number of close encounters he purports to have experienced with Greys and other extraterrestrial beings. The book features an illustration
that has become the icon for ETs.
•GEORGE ADAMSKI - made headlines in the winter of 1953, when he reported that the year before, he had met and talked with a man from Venus ... by
the friendly, profoundly wise Space Brothers from Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn... all of whom were physically indistinguishable from earth humans.
There are reports of Adamski on his tours at times being accompanied by two lovely women, forerunners of rock “groupies,” who were introduced by
George, with a slight twinkle in his eye, as his “official bodyguards from Venus... meet Kalna, and Illmuth!”
British UFO enthusiast Gavin Gibbons (1922 - 1978) published They Rode in Space Ships in 1957, summarizing in immense detail the alleged
extraterrestrial experiences of newer contactees Daniel Fry and Truman Bethurum,
in 1954 published a book, Aboard a Flying Saucer, recounting how, in “late July” of 1952, he had met and talked with a human-appearing woman from
the hitherto-unknown planet Clarion. Her name was Captain Aura Rhanes.
•DANIEL W. FRY
in 1954 published his book,The White Sands Incident, explaining how he had met and talked with A-Lan, a human-appearing space alien whose race, now
dwelling in giant space ships, once colonized Mars after being driven by catastrophy from the Theosophical Lost Continent of Lemuria on our earth!
•GEORGE VAN TASSEL
came to Landers, California in 1947 and bought Giant Rock, a gigantic boulder about 7 stories tall. He opened an airport and cafe near the rock, and
tried to promote tourist business. Van Tassel claimed in 1955 that he began to meditate in a cave excavated under the Rock, and managed to call down a
flying saucer from Venus.
seems to be one of the more obscure of the 1950s contactees. Angelucci, an aircraft-plant assembly-line worker, claimed in 1955 that he had met and
talked with superhuman beings from other planets, who placed him in a shuttle and took him to earth orbit, where he saw a gigantic Mother Ship drift
past. ... his Space Brothers exist in higher dimensions, so that on “our plane” they are insubstantial and transparent, and they and their
vehicles can appear and disappear at will... a feature that did not become standard until the dreamlike UFO abduction tales of the 1990s.
jumped on the bandwagon in 1956. A taxi-driver interested in yoga and oriental religions, he said then that back in the summer of 1954 he had suddenly
received telepathic messages from the “Cosmic Masters of the Solar System,”
is my favorite among all the 1950s contactees. His claims date from 1957, when he was a ripe 63 years of age. This farmer in the Missouri Ozarks led
no religious cult. The slightly cross-eyed, overall-attired Buck told reporters that in July of 1956 a spacecraft landed on his farm, and he was
eventually taken to Mars, where he was given a 385-pound Venusian black dog named Bo.
spoiled it all in the mid 1960s when she began to have nightmares about being kidnapped by inhuman, enigmatic, diminutive space aliens.
•EDUARD "Billy" MEIER
His saucer-riding claims date from about 1965 and are closely based on Adamski's, including trips to the mother ship in earth orbit, on to Venus,
etc. His main innovation was to have the Space Brothers come from another solar system.
•OTHER CULT LEADERS—
During the 1950s and 1960s there were dozens of individuals who claimed to be in telepathic communication with friendly space aliens
