The Answers are Revealed

Posted by AlienCG on September 4, 2008

OK, as I asked on Tuesday, what is truth and what is myth?

1.  I believe that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the galaxy.

Truth. Absolutely, and wouldn’t I?  The Milky Way is about 1,000 light years thick and 100,000 light years in diameter.  It is made up of more than 200 billion stars many of which have the potential for an earth-like planet with life on it.

2.  I believe that aliens look like the big, bug-eyed, frail creatures as they are depicted.

Myth. It seems likely that I would since I always use it to represent myself, but I just find it hard to believe.  This representation is really only a distorted view of human beings.  I see this image more as a symbol for what is unknown and mysterious to us.  Real aliens would display characteristics that would allow them to live on their planets.

3.  I believe that what crashed at Roswell was an alien spacecraft.

Myth. I have yet to see, hear or read compelling evidence to make me believe this.  Fact, most high-profile crashes seem to take place near areas with a military presence.  This leads me to conclude that these UFO crashes are experimental military aircraft.  I do believe in UFOs since it simply means Unidentified Flying Object.  Shocked yet?

4.  I believe that that the moon landing was real.

Truth. There is no doubt in my mind that Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin took those most famous steps.  If it truly was a hoax, why would NASA risk it by faking it five more times?  Anyway, there is way too much footage that cannot be faked under earth’s gravity.  I believe we went six times and the sites and footprints are still there.  I also believe we will go back.

5.  I believe that the pyramids were built by aliens.

Myth. As fascinating as this sounds, I still find it hard to believe.  No, the pyramids were built by Egyptians who were working for their Pharaoh.  I also don’t believe aliens built Stonehenge, Chichen Itza or the Great Wall of China.

There you have it, I am not so much of a freak after all.  I hope that you aren’t mad at me for removing my mystique.

    Thanks for all the great info (from fact or fiction) :)! I believe without a doubt that the moon landing was real. I was shocked when I heard Mythbusters or one of those shows question it.

    I was off on most of them. You and LauraB. may be from the same planet.
