 Lost in all of the craziness of 2020, the government released videos and images of UFOs. Normally, this would be considered massive news and would be the only thing we talk about for months. However, with everything else happening, it seemed that people talked about this for about 20 minutes and moved on. When I was younger, I thought that the idea of aliens was ridiculous and I was certain that they did not exist. However, now I realize that it would be short-sighted to believe that we are the only intelligent life that exists in this never-ending universe. There could be life similar to humans somewhere else asking the same questions we are. We just do not know. While I do not want to dismiss people's stories of alien encounters or abductions, I think some of them sound a bit far-fetched. People can say anything they want, so it is difficult to just take someone's word for it. I also think it is interesting how when we think of aliens, we all have a universal image in our head about what we think they would look like, when they could actually look like anything. For all we know, we could have encountered them without even knowing it. It is also generalized that aliens would all be evil and looking to abduct us or kill us, but that could also be false.


  1. Hi Michael! I like to think there is life out there other than us. It is almost comforting thinking that with all the chaos that is happening here on earth, especially lately, there could be beings on another planet living a completely different reality. Maybe they got it right and are living in peace right now. Maybe they got it very wrong and have already had to start over. Who knows? It is very interesting to think about!

  2. Hello Michael, I do agree there are other life forms on other planets. I like to think that if we're on this planning than there has to be other life forms living a similar life on another planet. I sometimes think that when people go to space, they do not tell us the complete truth when they come back or if they've seen anything out there that made anyone think there were other lifeforms. I do not think "Aliens" are the typical green skinny form that we've been branded to think. I think maybe they could be similar to what humans looks like, not exactly but similar. I feel living on a different planet and having different atmospheres can change the way they look as well.
