Default Re: Do you believe at some point aliens visited us that look like the aliens we think of?

Those pictures are just artist depictions of what aliens wood look like. Theres stuff 100 times crazier looking on earth... why would aliens looks anything like humans like in those pictures?



Theres no aliens visiting earth. Why in gods good name would aliens come to earth in 'secrecy'? Why would the government hide aliens visits? These things only make sense when you're looking at it from the conspiracy POV. Logically nothing about aliens adds up.


If there is a being smart enough to invent interstellar travel.. why would it not try to communicate with us? Help us? or Quickly kill us for some reason? Why would it do some creepy shit like watch us all the time?


Just some questions i pose that no one can ever answer.

If the world was visited by UFOs, you're telling me the gov't wouldn't have detected them?!?! Please explain how the existence of aliens & a gov't conspiracy is not connected.

There's a very well known phenomenon on this planet called convergent evolution. Basically what happens is that creatures from unrelated lineages that evolve in similar but geographically separate environments exhibit similar traits. And it makes sense, as they're generally adapting to the same sorts of selectors.

We only know of a very small range of conditions under which life can develop in this universe. It doesn't mean that's all there is, but it does stand to reason that our earliest earnest searches (which have already begun) would focus on those conditions (water, stable energy, the necessary prerequisites for for organic chemical reactions, etc.) as a means of narrowing an exceedingly large field. You combine that with notions of panspermia and other known concepts of biology, like the versatility of carbon, and the case becomes stronger.

Basically, if we find an Earth-like planet, we may well find Earth-like life. And that doesn't even begin to touch on ideas like simulated realities, various many worlds theories, post-singular intelligences, and the computational universe, all of which have decent and growing traction in serious scientific circles.

yes and no. i believe there's a high possibility of life form away from earth, but i don't believe they've reached earth and inhabited here before. at least there's no convincing evidence for me to believe that. some alien theorists point to some impossibly large 100 ton stones that must have been built and moved by powerful aliens. that's such a stupid meaningless correllation. i think they are totally discrediting the abilities of man from the ancient era. just because some have no idea how they did it back then, that is not evidence that aliens came and built those structures. it's only evidence that many methods were lost through time and now we (modern men who are reliant on current technology) have probably become too stupid to understand how large objects could had been moved without modern day machinery. maybe in some ways, ancient civilizations were far more creative and intelligent than we are today.

Probably not.
As for lifeforms arising on earth like planets(chemically and physically), they would be chemically similar, but phenotypically different due to non linear effects like weather. Evolution of life is massively contingent on past history and non linear effects could significantly alter the lines in which these organisms evolve
