Past Visits

Will we be re-visited by aliens. In order to answer this we must first assume that we have been visited by aliens at some time in our past. In my hub, I conclude that we have.

The answer to this question must depend on what their purpose for their first visit was. There has been much speculation on this topic. Some think that it could of been to either survey for, or even mine for minerals. Others think that they may have come to further our education, introducing us to new technologies. Yet others speculate that they came here to tamper with our DNA, modeling us to the humans that we are today. It could of been for any of these reasons or even a combination of them.

It could however of been a chance visit. This means that it was an accidental visit. If aliens are traveling through space, visiting different planets, then they have, most probably attained the ability to travel at speeds that are faster than that of light. We cannot yet even detect, let alone see something traveling at these speeds. It is therefore possible that a super highway through space passes by our planet and we don't know about it. If a "vehicle" was going down this highway and got into some kind of trouble causing it to pull over to the side [Earth]. Not then, or even now, do we have the technology to give them the equivelent of a "tire change", battery "top up" and certainly could not offer them a tow. It cannot be easy flagging down a vehicle traveling at those speeds. They would therefore have to see if they could find relevent materials to fix their vehicle. Whist doing this they perhaps put up signs [perhaps pyramids or nazca lines], in case anyboby looked this way. Don't forget, that even a flare at sea, is only useful if someone sees it.

The above is just one scenario for a chance visit. There must be others.

If the alien visit was, a chance visit, then the chances of a "vehicle" breaking down in the same place are truly astronomical.

However, if the visit was a planned one, for whatever reason, then it certainly means that at least one other planet is aware of the existence of Earth and of our being here. So they may have plans for further visits and could be watching us, as we develope. Why would they leave it so long, some may ask. My answer to that would be, that time has a different meaning to different species, even on Earth. The lifespan of a fly may only be a few of our days. Which means that, what is a lifetime to us, may only be one day to an alien.

My conclusion is that, if a visit by aliens had taken place in our past, it was a chance one. I therefore do not think that the same aliens would pay us another visit. My reasons for thinking this are. If an alien had purposely visited us, it would probably of done one of two things. Left proof that was indisputable about their visit, if they wanted us to remember it. Or, if they did not want us to remember it they would of totally erased any evidence of their ever being here.

This, of course, does not mean that we will not be visited by other aliens.

      I don't believe that an extra-terrestrial would enslave us. I believe that slavery is an outdated idea that any civilization with the ability to travel trans-galacticaly would pursue against a foreign worlds native populace.

      At some time in the distant past a vessel landed here after a long voyage, the occupants were awoken from hibernation, not all, perhaps a couple of thousand. The planet was found to be habitable as the only creatures were lowly hominids, these we know as Neanderthals, DNA was extracted from these creatures and used, with a little tampering, to make a sub race of "slave" labor to help mine certain elements of the planet that the vessel needed as fuel, some were also used as pets, the alien race found them to be a great comfort, much the same way we find cats and dogs to be the same. The vessel needed to continue the voyage. The vessel then left leaving some of the crew behind, those that decided to settle could not actually stand the surface atmosphere and climate of earth but chose to move underground and made an artificial climate more closer to their own. These beings are observers or scientists or their equivalent not to add more that moved to other planets in our solar system as their population expanded. The "slaves" evolved into modern man, some are still "pets" or liaison agents. The rest, I leave up to your fertile imaginations.

      we will not be visited by aliens soon nor have we ever been it is improbbible because of the distance between selestial bodies they would have to be from within our galazy because andromeda the closest large galaxy is estimated to be about 2.2 million light years away so even at the speed of light there is no way they came from any planet at or farther from the milky way than andromeda is so they would need to come from a very small galzy that is relativly closer but much smaller galaxy. The closest Canis Majoris Dwarf is about 25,000 light years away so unless they are faster than the speed of light or are in our own galazy the odds of them visiting us is microscopic.

      Thanks for your comment. That is the point, neither God nor Aliens seem to want to leave proof "beyond a shadow of doubt". WHY?.

      If "they" are visiting us, it sure seems like thay are playing a sort of "cat and mouse" or "hide nad seek" game. We can speculate all we want, but were is the evadance "beyond a shadow of a doubt?"
