Already we’re on challenge day five,
Do you, like me, believe Aliens are alive?
“Mom, I have something to tell you” C.J, age 10, said to me with a serious stare.
“What’s up?” I asked.
“I am an Ancient Alien…the last one of my species.”
Perhaps, I should be more careful with my TV viewing.
I love the TV show Ancient Aliens – http://www.history.com/shows/ancient-aliens. I watch it a lot. Many nights, C.J , watches it with me, apparently researching how to return to his Mother Ship.
The premise of the show, just in case you are not familiar with the History/H2 channel, is that aliens came to Earth thousands of years ago and influenced the course of events. They helped us along by lending us their technology to build things like pyramids and crop circles. They slept with our women and made hybrid alien babies. There are some experts that hypothesize that Adam and Eve were actually Aliens sent here to populate the planet. To those of you that are laughing at me right now, I ask you, “why couldn’t this be true?”
It’ s not that I believe everything the show espouses. I have watched a few of the Ancient Aliens debunked shows. Some of the ancient mysteries that the show relies on can be explained without alien intervention. I know that it is the Rapa Nui people that moved the Maoi on Easter Island by rolling them on trees. That is why there are no more trees on Easter Island. The Rapa Nui were not conservationists. The giant heads were not moved by alien laser eyes, which is such a frickin’ bummer because that is a way better story.
On the other hand, there are somethings that can be best explained through alien intervention. For example, Derinkuyu, the ancient multi-level underground city in Turkey. The fate of Atlantis is another example. And of course the Tea Party, because no one on this planet can figure them out.
The Universe is a HUGE place with many, many galaxies. It seems impossible to believe we are the only planet with life on it, doesn’t it? And humans are quite a strange and interesting bunch. Certainly scientists from another planet would be drawn to study us. If I were an alien there’d be a lot about Earthlings that I’d like answered. Like why do humans have wars, why is there so much negativity and what is up with Giorgio Tsoukalos’ hair and why is his skin so orange?
Giorgio is the creator of the Ancient Alien TV show. He appears in each episode to make the case for whatever theory they are discussing that day. His hair seems to grow by the episode. No matter where you stand on the Ancient Alien question, the show is worth watching just to try to figure out what is going on there….Maybe Giorogio is part alien….
I am completely convinced that aliens are real and that some are on the Earth right now. In fact, I have proof. I have C.J.
Like the aliens of the remote past, CJ draws cave art, usually on the inside of his closet. He builds pyramids albeit with Legos but that is probably just practice. He has been known to move things across rooms with a concentrated glare (and a push of his arm). Moreover, C.J. speaks Alien; his own language of barely human sounds that he loudly emits at odd, unexpected and typically inconvenient times.
Then there is the physical resemblance…C.J. is actually a lot like the Greys (the name used for aliens by victims of alien abduction). He has humongous eyes, is thin and long and, finally, many days he has grey skin (at least on his ashy legs that he often forgets to lotion).
And then there’s the fact that his hair sticks up just like Giorgios’.
P.S. W8Lo Challenge. YAHOO! It’s a challenge miracle. I lost .5 a pound. Granted I need to pick up the pace a bit if I’m going to get to my 10 pds by the end of NaBloPoMo. However, let us not forget that the Halloween candy and I have been at war and yesterday was the first battle I won. And now all of my favorites are gone so I have a fighting chance.
