Humans are notorious for relying on the supernatural and other mythical or other-worldly phenomena to explain simple events that should otherwise be explained by science and reason. Some people who hear the natural creaks of an old house are ready to believe that ghosts and spirits are haunting the rooms above them. In the late 1600s, women in Salem, Massachusetts were accused of being witches simply because young girls were acting out of sorts. And of course, some people like to claim that aliens visited Ancient Egypt, and are the reasons why the Pyramids, among other structures, were built.
Honestly, I’ve never given much thought to the idea that aliens may have beamed down from the skies above to influence the humans living on our planet. I’ve heard rumors here and there, but nothing has ever convinced me that we haven’t always been the only creatures of advanced thought processes here on Earth. The masks that Dr. Watrall showed in class, the ones that had very narrow and pointed chins and larger, broader foreheads, caught my attention, because he reported that some people might see this as evidence towards alien life on earth. However, this doesn’t prove anything. Every culture has designed and produced masks, from ancient times through modern times. These masks are all different shapes, sizes, colors and materials, and just because one culture’s mask seems to fit our society’s description of extra terrestrial beings doesn’t mean that when they were made thousands of years ago, aliens were influencing their design.
I’ll admit, some of the “evidence” that people have found for aliens on earth is intriguing. The Ancient Egyptian drawings and sculptures of humans with elongated skulls definitely don’t look like what a normal human head looks like. The hieroglyphs that look like spaceships descending on the population definitely help an imagination to run wild. But in reality, that’s it. There is no concrete proof for the “evidence” for aliens, and everything that has the potential to be evidence for aliens can also be proven by more realistic explanations. It’s fun to ponder the existence of extra terrestrial beings but unless we uncover more facts, that’s as far as we can go.
