Alien Theory (part 5)
However, many believe that aliens are here, either visiting earth or already living among us. The increasing number of UFO sightings in recent years (which probably have nothing to do with the ease of using special effects and personal drones to create convincing Youtube videos) suggest that the aliens are becoming far more comfortable with us knowing they are here. It is suspected that people in our government already know the truth, and some believe they are withholding evidence so as not to cause mass panic (if the 1938 Orson Welles fake radio broadcast of “War of the Worlds” is any indication, people will indeed panic and commit suicide for fear of an alien invasion.) It isn't a stretch to believe that our government would lie to us--there's already plenty of history there--but is evidence of an alien crash in Roswell really being hidden in Area 51? One day it might be announced that aliens actually live among us, visit our planet on occasion, or have made contact. But if that day never comes and we are alone in the universe, it certainly doesn't hurt to wonder and imagine—that's the stuff that makes great sci-fi!
