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

Do you think it's possible this template for what is an alien is some sort of amalgamation of things people really saw?


I know what you're're comparing your/our fear for aliens that look like that to our fear of snakes and spiders and stuff.

But spiders are freaky to us in a different way. We are unconsciously just freaked out by the sight of big spiders...they're ugly to us and i wouldn't want one to touch me. They're gross.

I don't think an alien like that is gross though. I'd be scared of one because it'd probably be faster, stronger, and smarter than me...but it's not gross or whatever.
