Do Aliens Exist Essay, Research Paper
Just about 500 years ago people believed that the earth was still flat, 50 years ago people doubted the existence of an alien life, 5 min ago the people of earth believe that aliens existed. Many individuals around the world have reportedly been contacted by extra terrestrial beings. They allege that Earth is currently being visited by several different species of extra terrestrial. These individuals report that extra terrestrials are visiting the Earth because they are interested in observing the development of the human species. This alone is not the only reason we believe in the existence of Extraterrestrial life and UFOs. Aliens along with UFOs exist because of Government Cover-ups, The Roswell Incident, Extraterrestrial Laws and Government Projects.The United States government is actively involved in secret military projects. For national security reasons the military keeps these projects secret from the public. Some individuals believe that the US government has already discovered extra terrestrial intelligence but chooses to keep it hidden from the public. These individuals believe that the military has recovered extra terrestrial craft and bodies and may be in regular communication with an extra terrestrial intelligence. They believe that the government and the military are going to great lengths to hide extra terrestrial contact from the public. One secret the government covers up is a base known as Area 51, which could contain the truth about aliens. Area 51 is a secret US military installation which lies just outside of Las Vegas, Nevada (USA). Area 51 is one of the most secretive places on earth; so secret that it isn’t on any map and the US government denies its’ existence. The base has long been reported to house extra terrestrial craft and alien bodies-although no one can confirm these allegations. Many individuals have reportedly seen craft leaving the base at night, which are able to accelerate at amazing speed and make rapid changes in direction-far beyond any terrestrial technology. Area 51 was build in the early 1950’s by the CIA to test its top secret U-2 program. The base was built for its great year-round flying conditions, remoteness and flat lake bed on which to make runways. Ever since the U-2 program, Area 51 has been the test area for the latest technological developments in the US military. Allegedly, Area 51 is the testing ground for a new top secret hypersonic stealth aircraft project called Aurora. Area 51 does contain many secrets: but does it contain any extra terrestrial secrets? Skeptics argue that people could be mistaking a new US military secret project for extra terrestrial crafts. While, other researchers believe that the US military is flying captured extra terrestrial ships. The answers lie deep below the Nevada desert locked away for history to discover. Another Cover-up was with the CIA and they even wrote a report about there findings. The report was released on August 2, 1997 and it was called ?CIA?s Role in the Study of UFO?s (1947-90)? which detailed how the agency lied to the American public about UFOs. The UFO sightings were a convenient way for the CIA to divert attention away from their covert operation of secret spy planes. The admission helped reinforce some researchers’ belief that individuals who saw a UFO could be viewing a secret spy plane, not an alien craft. Gerald K. Haines wrote the report, he is now a historian working for the National Reconnaissance Office. US President Bill Clinton’s CIA director, James Woolsey ordered the report to be created after he had been questioned about the CIA’s involvement with UFOs. The report explains that the both the CIA and the United States Airforce conducted the UFO cover-up. During the Cold War, both agencies hid their interest in UFOs because they feared public knowledge of the agency’s interest would make the UFO problem worse. Both the CIA and the US Air Force felt the UFO problem could be used by the Soviet Union to make an attack on the United States. The report concludes that the CIA was very interested in the UFO problem until the early 1950s, but since has paid little attention to it. Over half of all UFO reports from the late 1950’s through the 1960’s were accounted for by manned reconnaissance flights (namely the U-2) over the United States. This led the Air Force to make misleading and deceptive statements to the public in order to allay public fears and to protect an extraordinarily sensitive national security project. While perhaps justified, this deception added fuel to the later conspiracy theories and the cover-up controversy of the 1970s(http://www.odci.gov/csi/studies/97unclas/ufo.html)?On July 4th 1947 a rancher named William Brazel found wreckage scattered over his ranch – 30 miles south of Corona. Brazel had found weather balloons on two other occasions, but was unable to recognize the debris in his field. The next day he took some of the wreckage and went into Roswell to show the local sheriff. He met with George Wilcox, the local sheriff, who then contacted Roswell Army AirField (RAAF) to report the strange debris. Major Jesse Marcel, the intelligence officer of the 509th Bomber group, came to see the wreckage at the sheriff’s office. Major Marcel reported his findings to his commanding officer, Colonel William Blanchard, who then ordered Marcel to go to the ranch and collect more of the wreckage. On July 6th Major Marcel took one vehicle and Captain Sheridan Cavitt, another intelligence officer, took a second vehicle to the Brazel ranch. They slept overnight at the Brazel ranch and went to the debris field the next morning. They discovered that the debris covered a large area and they collected enough wreckage to carry in their two cars. The debris contained small bits of tin-foil-like metal and I-beams. These fragments exhibited strange qualities: the tin-foil-like metal could be bent and folded but it would fold back out into its original shape, the I-beams had hieroglyphic writing on them, both items were extremely light-weight and could not be burned, broken, scratched, cut or torn. On his way to the RAAF, Jessie Marcel stopped by his home and woke his family to show them the strange debris. Jessie Marcel had seen weather balloons and rockets before but nothing like what they recovered from the Brazel ranch. The wreckage was then driven to RAAF and transported in a B29 to the Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio. On July 8, 1947, Colonel Blanchard ordered Second Lieutenant Walter Haut (public information officer of the 509th) to issue a press release telling the world that the military had recovered a crashed a flying saucer. The press release was issued and it caused a worldwide sensation. The military converged on the Brazel ranch and Mr. Brazel was placed under observation. The Brazel ranched was searched by military personnel and allegedly an extra terrestrial craft with four alien bodies was recovered a few kilometers away. The wreckage was brought to the RAAF, it was crated, stored in a hangar and then flown to Wright Patterson Air Force Base. On July 9th, 1947 General Ramey, the Commanding Officer of the Eighth Air Force, held a press conference in his office at the Eighth Air Force Headquarters in Fort Worth Texas. General Ramey announced that what had crashed at the Brazel Ranch was a weather balloon, not a flying saucer. He then showed the press the weather balloon recovered from the ranch. The press interviewed Mr. Brazel on July 9th and found his story had changed. William Brazel now said that he found the wreckage on June 14th but didn’t pay much attention to it until July 4th. The wreckage he found consisted of rubber strips, tinfoil, scotch tape, paper and sticks. The events in Roswell, New Mexico during July 1947 have now become known as the Roswell Incident. The Roswell Incident still receives a lot of attention to this day. The US Air Force has come out with three different reports since the Roswell Incident; each with different versions of the story. One thing is for sure, people will continue to be puzzled by the mysterious events surrounding the Roswell Incident. In addition to the cover-up of this story there is also a tape that was discovered. In 1997 Ray Santilli stunned the world with an autopsy film taken of an extra terrestrial. The film allegedly portrays an extra terrestrial autopsy conducted in Roswell New Mexico during July 1947. The extra terrestrial was allegedly one of the bodies recovered by the US Air Force during the Roswell Incident. Skeptics have attacked the film and called it a forgery designed to enrich Mr. Santilli. Skeptics have also questioned the authenticity of the film and believe that it is an elaborate hoax. The holes in Mr. Santilli’s story are very large and he has made very few efforts to prove the authenticity of his film. Someday the truth about the alien autopsy film will surface making Ray Santilli a hero or a hoaxster.On July 16,1969, a little known US law was passed called the ‘Extra Terrestrial Exposure Law’ that made it illegal for the public to come in contact with extra terrestrials or their vehicles (Title 14, Section 1221 of the Code of Federal Regulations). Anyone found guilty of such contact could be imprisoned for one year and fined $5,000 US. As well, any individual who has been ‘extra terrestrially exposed’ could be quarantined under armed guard by the NASA administrator without a hearing. The law was removed on April 26, 1991 ’since is has served its’ purpose and is no longer in keeping with current policy (http://www.execpc.com/~vjentpr/etlaw.html). The law was passed originally to protect the earth from possible biological contamination resulting from the United States Apollo Space Program and other related space exploration programs. It has been suggested that the U.S. government was very concerned that contact with extra-terrestrial bacteria could result in a worldwide plague. The immune system of human beings would not be able to combat the extra-terrestrial bacteria; therefore any ‘extra terrestrial exposure’ was taken very seriously. People in the UFO community were alarmed with the Extra Terrestrial Exposure Law because its broad wording could allow the U.S. government to prosecute people in NASA along with individuals in the general public who come into contact with extra-terrestrials and their vehicles. UFO believers found it interesting that on the one hand the government was denying they had any interest in extra terrestrials yet they had a law on the books that forbid contact with extra terrestrials and their craft.There are two projects that the government ran about aliens. The two projects are Project Blue Book and Project Aurora. Project Blue book was a program was started in 1947 and was terminated on December 17, 1969. Project Blue Book investigated 12, 618 UFO sightings and 701 of those sightings remained unidentified. Critics felt that the investigations of the UFO sightings were sloppy and unscientific. The critics believe that Project Blue Book was merely a public relations campaign designed by the US Air Force to calm the public’s fears about UFOs. The critics believe the ultimate purpose of the report was to cover up the truth about UFOs. The Final Results of the project were no UFO reported, investigated and evaluated by the Air Force was ever an indication of threat to our national security. There was no evidence submitted to or discovered by the Air Force that sightings categorized as “unidentified” represented technological developments or principles beyond the range of modern scientific knowledge. Lastly, there was no evidence indicating that sightings categorized as “unidentified” were extraterrestrial vehicles (http://www.af.mil/news/factsheets/Unidentified_Flying_Objects_a.html). Project Blue Book was a continuation of previous military projects to research the UFO phenomena- Project Sign and Project Grudge. The project was headquartered at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. The mission of Project Blue Book was to investigate the alarming number of UFO reports and draw a conclusion from their research on the origin of UFOs. Project Blue Book was supposed to put an end to the UFO debate but it only intensified the controversy. Project aurora is another project that the government ran. Individuals have reported seeing unusual triangle-shaped aircraft flying over the United States. A high number of these sightings have been around Area 51. Some individuals believe that these sightings provide evidence that the US government is flying captured extra terrestrial craft. Other researchers believe that these individuals are merely witnessing tests of the latest top secret US aircraft. The United States government has allegedly produced a hypersonic stealth aircraft that can fly Mach 6 named Aurora. The mission of the Aurora aircraft is to provide aerial reconnaissance anywhere in the world. Many individuals believe it would be easy to mistake the Aurora aircraft for a UFO due to its’ alleged shape and flight performance. Unfortunately, due to the secretive nature surrounding the operations of Area 51 individuals are unable to obtain physical proof that these strange craft are secret test planes or extra terrestrial craft.Aliens along with UFOs exist because of Government Cover-ups, The Roswell Incident, Extraterrestrial Laws and Government Projects. Someday, sometime, and somewhere we will know the answer to all these questions. The government is up to something and what could they be hiding that they don?t want you to know. How long will it be before the public knows? The question that goes through the minds of many now is ?Do Aliens Exist?? Luke 12:3 – Therefore whatever you have said in the dark shall be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.
