Are There?

As a science fiction writer, I dream up aliens all the time. But are there aliens really out there on their own world wondering, are there really aliens out there? NASA tells us that there are possibilities of 500,000 to possibly one billion systems that could have a planet with earth like conditions.

Let’s just take the smaller number of 500,000 star systems possible of sustaining Earth like conditions on one planet in the system. Now for those of you who are scoffing at me, what if NASA told you there is a possibility of 500,000 rocks with a five dollar bill under it on Earth, how many of you would be looking under rocks? Possibilities of alien life is too great to say there are no such things as aliens. People just like you and me. Not the weird looking aliens I or any other sci-fi writer could dream up. People made in Gods image like us. They may even speak French, or some other weird language. But they would be aliens, right?

Now if you watch Ancient Aliens and I do, but with a salt shaker by my side. The program presents you with ancient cave and rock paintings depicting alien visitations along with numerous accounts of alien spaceship sightings. Maybe our ancestors were trying their hand at science fiction writing then as well, who knows. As for the sightings of alien spacecraft, your guess is as good as mine.

So, for the doubters out there let’s say that all of this is a hoax. There are no aliens traveling around on spaceships and the drawings are our ancestors’ first attempt at science fiction writing. I’ll give you all of that. But what if there are other people like us, in God’s image, on a big blue ball, not traveling around in spaceships? Just sitting in their living rooms watching the news about their Hubble telescope peering into space and the possibilities of alien life in the galaxy. Would you thinking change from not there to are there?

Remember! A donation of likes and follows keeps me fed. Thank you all for your support.
