The Tomb of the Spaceman in Palenque, Mexico

Have Aliens Visited the Earth?

Like most people, I have always been skeptical about the existence of aliens and UFO's. I have also believed that the mysterious Area 51 is nothing more than a normal military base where nothing special is going on. However, every once in a while something unexplained happens to pierce through my armor of skepticism.

One of those pivotal moments in my life came when I went to visit the the Mayan ruins at Palenque in Mexico. This particular architectural wonder is different from the other ruins in the Mayan Peninsula because the sarcophagus of K'inich Janaab' Pakal, an ancient king who reigned from about 615 to 683 A.D., was found in a hidden chamber deep inside the primary pyramid. Because a tomb was found hidden inside, this particular pyramid is more similar to those found in Egypt than it is to other ruins found throughout the remainder of Central America. Why did this particular group of Mayans follow a practice that was customary only on the other side of the world?

When I personally viewed the lid of the sarcophagus, I was also amazed. Like the author Erich von Daniken who wrote the book "Chariots of the Gods," I find myself believing that the carving on the lid looks like a man inside a space capsule. The man carved onto the lid is surrounded by what appears to be round dials and a variety of tubes. His hands seem to be manipulating some of the equipment in front of him. His left foot sits just below a pedal. He is sitting in a complicated chair and beneath the chair appears to be some type of engine with lines of exhaust emerging from the bottom. If I had not seen this sarcophagus lid for myself, I would never have believed it really existed.

While many archaeologists do not believe that this tomb carving indicates that King Pakal came from outer space, my own natural skepticism was certainly eroded when I saw the carving. As I gazed at it, it certainly looked like a 1960s era space capsule to me.

I began to wonder, if the Mayans knew about space capsules, is it possible that aliens have visited our planet? Further in this article you will see some information about the mysteries of UFO's and Area 51.

Have Aliens Already Visited Our Planet? Could That Explain Ancient Technology?

Does the technology of ancient civilizations indicate that aliens may have helped them with some of their projects? Is there evidence of alien visitors?

UFO's Have Been Reported for Decades

The term UFO simply stands for Unidentified Flying Object. To be honest, most of the time this means that people have simply sighted an object that can be easily explained. Despite that fact, there have been a number of incidents over the years that no one has been able to explain.

According to government studies, most cases of UFO's actually turn out to be normal aircraft, balloons, unusual clouds, meteors, planets and, sometimes, hoaxes. However, researchers have not been able to explain between 5% and 20% of the UFO's that have been reported, especially when they were reported by members of the military, police officers and airline pilots.

Because of the scarcity of federal investigations into UFO sightings, independent researchers have begun to investigate these reports. Three of the best known groups that have sprung up are:

NICAP - National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena

MUFON - Mutual UFO Network

CUFOS - Center for UFO Studies

MUFON alone claims that they investigate 500 UFO sightings every month.

With all this private research going on, many authors have written their opinions of the UFO phenomena.

Is Our Government Hiding Something in Area 51 ?

Area 51 has fascinated American citizens for decades. Area 51, also known as Groom Lake, is located about 83 miles north of Las Vegas. It is a large military airbase that is considered part of Edwards Air Force Base, although Edwards is actually located about 186 miles from Area 51. While there is no official designation of its purpose, it is generally believed to be the location where our government tests experimental aircraft and weapons.

Area 51 has long been the subject of conspiracy theories and many Americans believe that one or more alien aircraft have been concealed there while government scientists study them. I have driven past the location late at night and, because of its remoteness, felt vaguely ill at ease, wondering if the stories of alien aircraft were true. It doesn't help that the government has posted signs around Area 51 that say: "Photography is Prohibited" and "use of deadly force is authorized." This is hardly the way to get rid of the conspiracy theorists!

Former President Bill Clinton recently mentioned on life television that one of the first things he did when he became president is have his aides investigate whether or not something was hidden in Area 51, and they reported that there were no alien aircraft there. Of course, would he tell us, if he had discovered something?

Many researchers have gone to great lengths to investigate Area 51, and many of you will be interested in reading what they have discovered.

There are a number of fascinating books available on this subject.

      I think a lot of people would agree with you that there are some strange things that go on periodically!

      Interesting possibilities. I have already written on this subject and reported that some very high up officials in our government not to mention astronauts say extraterrestrials are not only visiting here and watching us, but actually living among us.

      I've experienced some strange things, and maybe one day I'll write about them. Still, I don't claim to have any answers, only questions.

      The evidence that extraterrestrials have been visiting our planet since the dawn of time is just too much to ignore. I also believe that they have interbred with humans. The extremely elongated skulls of ancient humans such as the Egyptian King Ahknaten and his children, and Mayans are unexplainable. It has been proved that these elongated skulls were not the result of binding the skull.

      @TanoCalvenoa: You are absolutely right that the U in UFO does stand for unidentified ... so the presence of UFO's does not necessarily mean there are aliens here. I read once that the first contact we would have with aliens would probably be with their machines ... just as we have sent robotic devices to Mars. Thanks for your comments!

      I've read the Leslie Kean book, it is very interesting and at times creepy. UFOs are real, although it's jumping to conclusions if you say they're for sure aliens. The "U" in "UFO" means unidentified, meaning we just don't know what it is and can only speculate/theorize.
