SO, YOU BELIEVE IN ALIENS?

The Roswell incident is still a thing today because people can’t let go of it. A weather balloon crashed, pieces were recovered, end of story. But in the 1970s, the media jumped back into the news, and it’s spiraled out of control since then. The tale continues to propagate, despite the fact that the only people who have ever really claimed to have seen the aliens or the spacecraft are rural farmers, out of work undertakers, and some inbred, back-water, moon shiner, banjo-playing, slow-talking hicks.”

Let me give you the reader’s digest version of crashed spaceships and alien beings. When you travel in weightless space you lose 2% of bone mass per month. Astronauts coming back from just a few months in space can’t even stand up or walk. Longer trips would mean total disability. On earth we are protected from radiation by the atmosphere. In space there is no protection. Astronauts would die from radiation exposure in a matter of months unless some very advanced way was found to protect them. The nearest galaxy, Andromeda, is two and a half million light years away.
The most advanced form of space travel imaginable projects a possible speed of twenty-five percent the speed of light. Remember Einstein’s formula: E=MC2. Any object approaching the sped of light takes on infinite mass. Even at ¼ the sped of light, it would take about ten million years for a ship to reach us. The level of technical sophistication to overcome bone loss, radiation poisoning, artificial gravity, suspended animation, or four thousand generations of people makes us look like one-celled Amoebas compared to them.

So, let’s just say that they overcome all that. They get here and crash. They just spent ten million years traveling through the universe and at the last second crash into Earth. Their ship doesn’t burn up in the atmosphere at temperatures of tens of thousands of degrees, they crash land at twenty-five thousand miles an hour but it doesn’t obliterate the ship and kill the inhabitants; they can breathe our oxygenated air because it’s exactly the same as the air on their planet, and they are taken prisoner by a few high school dropouts with phasers borrowed from Captain Kirk.
It’s beyond stupid.

Now allow me to extrapolate further. The universe is 13.7 billion light years in size. So, let’s assume an alien civilization was really close, say just one billion light years. Traveling at 25% the speed of light, it would take 4 billion years to get here.
So, they travel for four billion years, in some state of suspended animation on a ship that never gets hit by a meteor or space dust traveling at thousands of miles per second which can penetrate the hull of the ship.

Wait! What about worm holes. The center of a black hole is a point of singularity. That means anything entering would be compressed to the size of an atom. Wait! Suppose you could open the worm hole to accommodate a space ship? According to Dr. Michio Kaku (the foremost theoretical physicist in the world) it would take all the energy in a galaxy to hold open a worm hole big enough and long enough for a ship to pass.

But somehow, some way, they finally make it to us but instead of landing and meeting with us, they just float around in the atmosphere where people see lights, then fly off again for the 4 billion year journey home. That makes sense.

Or, they visited earth before, in the time of the Pharos because the Egyptians could not possibly have built the pyramids without alien help, even though it’s been proven that men using the tools available at that time could build with that level of precision.
Anyway, they visit us, but instead of teaching us medicine or how to make electricity or tell us about building sustainable cities, they just show us how to make monuments to them. Sure, a civilization callable of such space travel needs other civilizations to worship them.

Oh, and they bred with humans to carry on their race. Humans share 99% of their genes with chimpanzees but we cannot interbreed with them, but aliens from a different galaxy have the same genes as us.

And if that’s not enough for you, how about the fact that we are the only civilization in the universe. Wait! How can I say that?

The universe is 13.82 billion years old. The first galaxies formed three hundred million years after the big bang. If it takes (using Earth as an example) 4.5 billion years for intelligent life to evolve, that means other civilizations began to evolve 9.32 billion years before ours. They would surely have searched the universe for other life. We went from the steam engine to sighting exo-plants in a little more than two hundred. To think that any civilization 9.3 billions years more advanced than ours could not have located us by now seems, to me, highly unlikely.

They say that the more boring a person’s life, the more desperate they are to believe in fantasy. Get a life.
