In every era, some myth and superstitions prevailed. Even though we are living in the age of science and technology, even today you can find new types of myth. It is difficult to prove whether Aliens visiting earth is a similar myth or reality, but there is no conclusive evidence of any Alien visiting earth.
Stories of Alien abductions and sighting UFO’s (unidentified flying object) started in the beginning of 20th century. Until the mid of 20th century, extraterrestrial life became one of the popular subject of Hollywood movies. Later, people started serious studies and search for aliens not only on earth but also in outer space by sending radio waves in outer space with coded messages.
In last 70 years, no scientist has ever been able to find even a shred of evidence about extraterrestrial life or their visit to earth. All those who claimed that UFO abducted them were unable to produce anything spectacular to prove their claim. There are few blurred photograph and video’s of UFO’s flying in sky. However, most of photograph and videos were made by using trick photography and were rejected by skeptics studying the claims.
Alien visit is not logically coherent to reality. A civilization far advance then ours can reach to us. If they are so advance, then they have no reason to hide. They can contact us without landing on earth. They can study our culture using radio waves emitted from television broadcast.
New religions were made based on meeting with alien. Every year new movies are screened about aliens. Which gives rise to this hype of Alien visiting earth.
I always wonder, why alien abduction stories are mostly occur in western countries and not so often in Asian countries. In Asian countries Ghost, demon and Jins are more prevalent.
Human brain is a complex organ. In many cases, it can make you hallucinate about things that you continuously think about or hear a lot. A hallucination may be a sensory experience in which a person can see, hear, smell, taste, or feel something that is not there.
There is another interesting aspect of human nature. We tend to believe what is favorable to our faith or align to our thinking. Suppose, if I tell a Chinese I saw a Dragan in the ocean when I went for deep diving, he might believe me but if I tell the same story to any European who do not believe in dragons, he will call it rubbish straightforward. Similarly, in Europe if a Christian talk about his personal experience where he saw and talk with Jesus, every Christian will believe him. However, if same person said, “I saw Prophet Mohammad in my dream”. No one will believe him in Christian majority countries.
As stated earlier, when we have to believe things without evidence, we tend to believe what is in line with our thoughts.
In western countries, many educated people believe that life does not originate on earth but it came from outer space. In addition, most of scientist and ordinary people believe that there must be many other planets where life must be flourishing. With this mind set, when a person find any abnormal thing he will connect it with Alien. A good example is crop circle and pyramids. People thought both were made by Aliens, but debunked later.
In India, if people find something abnormal, they associate it will ghost or demon. Muslims believe in Jins. They associate abnormal behaviors to Jins. Near Madina, KSA, there is a place called Wadi-E-Jin. Even if you stop engine of car your car will move forward. When you see the road, you will not find any slop. Local people believe that it is cause by Jins.
There are no confirmed reports of Aliens landed on earth.When evidence are absent, it is proper to be skeptic about Aliens and UFO’s.
