February 14, 2010 By Stephen Ellis

Happy Valentine’s Day to one and all. I think Valentine’s Day is a great day to celebrate because it is the only holiday that is completely based on “love”; something we should all think about more often.

There have been an increasing number of reports appearing in Lon Strickler's “Phantoms and Monsters” blog about people who have had actual contact with alien beings. As much as I respect Lon and his blog, I have to remain a skeptic. It does make sense to me that if aliens were to visit this planet, they would try to keep themselves scarce and only talk to farmers or people passing by in their trucks. They would most certainly avoid making contact with people who seemed to be political leaders or in cities where there are dense populations. Earth is a “warring” planet. There has never been a time in recorded history when some group on Earth was not fighting with another group.

While many would be frightened by the knowledge that there are other types of humanoids visiting us, most people would welcome the thought of what we might learn from them. Of course, there would always be the occasional, Sarah Palin type, who would greet them with an elephant gun. This is the planet that, at one time or another, said “The only good Irishmen/Italians/Blacks/Jews/Muslims/Indians (etc.) are ‘dead’ ones.” To those advocating this slogan, it would be easy to add the group “aliens”.

As much as I would like to believe that we Earthlings have matured past that type of primitive or savage thinking, it’s simply not true. Muslims still insist that anyone who does not accept “Allah” as the only God must be destroyed. Some Arab nations are still committed to the extermination of Jews. Hindus are still committed to the obliteration of Muslims, etc.

Is it any wonder that aliens…who can probably detect this, have opted to remain scarce? Or perhaps make themselves known to drivers of vehicles on a lonely road…at night? Still, I’ve seen no evidence…even slight evidence…that there are extra-terrestrials visiting our planet. Until I do, I’ll remain a skeptic.

So, what is the explanation for all the UFO reports? There have been more than two million of them. There have been hundreds of thousands of photos taken and published. Many governments have “secret” files about UFOs (although most have now released the files to the public…the noted exception being the USA). Even if 99% of the reports are fantasy, imagination or people looking for their fifteen minutes of fame, that still leaves more than twenty thousand genuine sightings and thousands of genuine photos. What are they? Where do they come from? Why are they here?

There are several theories we can look at:

They are inter-galactic spacecraft observing life here on Earth: I tend to disagree with this theory because the distances in outer space are so vast that even at speeds approaching the speed of light (186,000 miles per second) it would take several lifetimes to traverse those distances.

They are from a buried civilization beneath the surface of the moon: I don’t buy this theory, either. There’s just no evidence that this is true. It certainly makes more sense than attempting to traverse the vast distances in outer space, but it is still highly unlikely.

They are from some type of planet so close to the sun that they cannot be seen: As far-out as this sounds, there may be some merit to this. The sun is far too bright to see, under normal conditions, if such things exist, but recent photos taken during some solar disturbances have revealed several Earth-size planets or planetoids near our sun. (There are U-Tube videos about this.) How they could survive the possible heat, light and radiation is beyond me at this point, but there are many things about our solar system we do not understand.

They are from an unexplored world right here on Earth: An interesting possibility: Russian Navy documents, recently declassified, have indicated that these UFOs seem to emanate from beneath our oceans. Keeping in mind that less than 10% of our ocean floors have been explored, let’s keep an open mind to this.

They are from a different dimension: To me, this seems to make the most sense. Physicists working on the Super String Theory of creation, have recently acknowledged that there are other dimensions and other worlds we cannot see; perhaps just like our planet Earth. According to the Super String Theory, all time and space has cracks in it through which we can pass from one dimension to another. These cracks have yet to be identified or located, but this is fraught with possibilities.

So, if you happen to see an alien being…ask him/her how they got here and tell me about it at Stephen Ellis
