Refuting Aliens

By Sam Huntington


It seems to me that even in spite of the lack of any empirical evidence for the existence of extraterrestrial life forms, the Arts and Entertainment Network sure spends a lot of money talking about them. Well, I want to be fair: they spend an equal amount of money on Duck Dynasty and Swamp People, too. Seriously, the evidence suggesting the actual existence of alien life forms is underwhelming and no amount of repeat performances of the so-called Roswell Incident will change my mind about this.

Am I therefore close-minded? No, not really. I just think that if there were such things as aliens, we would have already taxed the bejesus out of them, which would have sent them dashing back to whatever star system they came from. Common sense, actually. Sadly, all the rest of us are stuck here.



PS. Happy birthday, Z.

  1. Ever since the publication of The War of the World in 1897, there has been a craze involving invasion by extraterrestrial aliens.

    To add to the furor came Chariots of the Gods? Unsolved Mysteries of the Past in 1968. The Johnson Theory seems a more plausible explanation of the Nazca Lines of Peru.

    Another "basis" of extraterresrtial cultism: Whitley Streiber's Communion: A True Story, published in 1987.

    Human beings seem to love an unsolved mystery -- whether or not a mystery involves extraterrestrials.

    Yes, I read all those books. Escapism -- not reality.

    Whenever one of those extraterrestrial shows comes onto my TV screen, I change the channel.

  2. Yes Sam, you are closed-minded. Anyone who doesn’t believe in aliens is definitely closed-minded. Besides that, if you don’t believe in aliens colonizing planet Earth, how do you explain politicians? Or Ducky … Or Lenin-man …

  5. You mean Louis Gohmert and Ted Cruz are earthlings.

    That's a bracing thought.

  7. When I was in high school, I went through a period when I studied the issue. There are some odd things that are hard to explain, but I never did find any proof of aliens. Even when I was in the Air Force and looked into Project Blue Book, I did not find satisfactory proof.

    If we cannot prove aliens exist, can we prove aliens don't exist? No. The best we can do is to not waste time in unproductive endeavors. So I gave up looking for evidence of aliens.

    Are there aliens among us? If there are, I don't think we will know the answer until they want us to know.
