The Planet of Aliens
An alien is what we know to be something that is not native to planet earth, also known as an extraterrestrial life form. Although I do not believe that the green, one-eyed, Hollywood-influenced alien exists, I do believe that there are living organisms on other planets in this universe. The universe is so large that it is next to impossible to be able to examine every aspect of it, as we are still discovering new species here on earth.
I do not believe that Aliens have not come to our planet; however, I do believe that there is life on other planets. As Joshua Kennon once wrote:
Add in the possibility of multiple, or even infinite dimensions, which means entire civilizations could exist on a planet like Earth right alongside us without us knowing it, throw in the nature of time and time travel as it interacts with gravitational forces like black holes, and the concept exceeds the human mind’s ability to grasp. (Kennon)
I agree with Kennon because if there are billions of stars in the universe, there has to be one relatively similar to that of the sun, and also a planet revolving around it the same distance away as earth is to the sun. Due to this assumption, there must be some planet somewhere with conditions similar to those of earth. I do not believe that in our solar system there is one however because the planets that are in our system are either too far or too close to the sun for life to be maintained. In another solar system there must be a planet that resembles the living conditions of earth such as temperature, atmospheric pressure, oxygen levels, atmosphere conditions. There are also many scientific studies that show that indeed there is some type of life on another planet. NASA chief Ellen Stofan stated “"I think we're going to have strong indications of life beyond Earth within a decade, and I think we're going to have definitive evidence within 20 to 30 years," (Leopold) If NASA scientists are setting dates on when they will have proof to share with the public, then it is likely that they already have some evidence and know that there is something else out there.
I feel that the “Aliens” on another planet may not be humans but could be per say very well adapted microorganisms. It could be possible that the “aliens” evolved before us making them that much more advanced, or perhaps evolved after us making them much less evolved. However, we will never know if any of this is the case, unless we can unveil a way to travel to different planets outside our Solar System and explore them. Maybe these “aliens”, in their world, even have the cure to deathly diseases, or the answers to global issues.

Aliens

...Aliens I strongly believe that aliens exist in the United States if America. We have those restricted areas because we’re hiding aliens. People see so many UFO’s, either they’re lying about them or we are really hiding aliens. Area 51 has got to be restricted for something. In that military base, according to  bibliotecapleyades.net, there are over 30 levels that are above top secret. For many years now, we’ve had our government lie to us about a lot of things, of course they would lie to us about aliens. Area 51 is so restricted that not even the president is at a high enough rank to enter without someone keeping an eye on him. If you even step in that area without being invited you will be quickly eliminated. UFO’s are widely seen around the world seen around the world. Even more widely around the U.S. more closely around areas near Area 51. Yes, may people make up UFO sightings and tamper with videos, but there are people who have seen them, or at lease think that they really seen them. You can never tell who is really telling the truth. If someone actually has proof the government decides to delete all known history about what that person has to say. The government lets people talk to an extent, bit it is about them and someone decides to put the governments business out to be known to the world, the government is quick to shut them up. For example, in 1977 on the Art Bell Radio Show, Bell recieved a frantic phone call from a man who claimed to have been inside Area......

Ghost Do Exist

...Rakiiya Hearst December 3, 2012 X155 Ghost Do Exist A ghost is generally understood to be the disembodied spirit or soul of a once-living person. I do believe ghost exist. I’ve had many experiences with ghosts and hearing others tell their experiences, just makes me believe even more. I also believe that ghosts are real because of the research me and my sister have been doing since I started believing. There was a time when I was a non-believer and didn’t think ghost existed. My youngest sister is so fascinated with ghosts and pseudoscience. We share rooms, so when she watches TV (SyFy and Paranormal shows/movies) I have no choice but to watch it. That’s how I became a believer. It’s almost as if once you watch it or read about ghosts, you start having thoughts and strange things began happening. I start seeing things out the corner of my eye or even hearing the floor creak when I was home alone and there was no wind blowing (when it’s windy outside sometimes the wood on my house will creak). Most people believe that’s your mind playing tricks on you. But I believe that once you start believing in ghost then they’ll try to reach out to you and get your attention. One time, I was at home with my friend and I left my phone upstairs, on the bathroom sink. I was actually getting ready to flat iron my hair, but I went downstairs with my friend to keep her company while the curlers was heating up. We were sitting on the couch watching Punk’d on MTV. All of a sudden, we...

Alien Existence

...Alien Existence There are a lot of things in this world that go unexplained. Not anymore, it was all aliens, everything you can’t figure out like, “Where does one sock go when I do the laundry?” Aliens. Earth has been very much impacted by aliens in its short history. Everything from supplying life-giving chemicals and wiping out the dinosaurs with meteorites to influencing human culture and evolution. The whole world is full of evidence that aliens exist, even though it is usually denied and ignored by the government and academics. This paper will give a short investigation of extraterrestrial events and evidence. Ancient people, especially their huge structures and exciting grip of mathematics and astronomy, have always attracted human kind. For example, the Sumerians were aware of Pluto as early as 5,000 bce, seven thousand years before it was discovered by Clyde W. Tombaugh in 1930. The first written evidence of extraterrestrials was discovered in 1935 by Prof. Tsum Um Nui of the Academy of Prehistoric Research in Beijing who found a stone disk in the cave part of the Baian Kara Ula Mountains near Tibet. The stone disk was buried with a group of humans with delicate bodies and weird large skulls. At first they were thought to be apes, Prof. Um Nui was rumored to have said “Who ever heard of apes burying each other?” They ended up finding 716 disks but the Chinese government would not let any more research be done until a Russian, Dr. Saitsew, examined them and wrote a...

Patriot Act, Alien Act

...The USA Patriot Act, the Alien and Sedition Acts, and the Bill of Rights were all established by the government to protect the citizens of the United States of America. These forms of legislation were predominantly written with intentions of enhanced security but could also be construed as allotting more power to the government to generate decisions without the consent of the citizens. The USA Patriot Act is the most recent of the three forms of legislation, but its objective is probably more understood by citizens during a time of terrorism and constant states of “High Alert” issued by the government. The Act affects everyone in the country, and since it gives the government the ability to search any personal records and conduct surveillance on any citizen with little judicial oversight, people of the United States are annoyed, angered, and apprehensive too. Following the events occurring on September 11, 2001 and the ongoing wars in the Middle East, the government now maintains the right to jail non-citizens solely on suspicion and the FBI can investigate any American citizen for criminal matters if the Bureau declares the investigation involves matters of intelligence, all because the government endorsed and enacted the USA Patriot Act. The Alien and Sedition Acts are comprised of four smaller acts: the Alien Enemies Act, the Alien Act, the Naturalization Act, and the Sedition Act. During the time these Acts were passed, the government was comprised of Federalists who...

Aliens

...The first thing we have to look at is that fact that Aliens have no idea about human behavior therefore they want to experiment on humans .So suppose aliens place 30 people on an Island and observe their behavior . First let’s observe Karl Marx's theory of alienation, which simplified is the antagonist dynamic placed between things that is properly in harmony. It describes a sense of social Alienation that exists amongst all classes and caste of a society throughout human history. A perfect example is the caste system of India were people are assigned there role in society given by birth. They are known as the Varnas. The caste labels given to people in India they are the Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas, and a Shudras. Amongst these groups in society there is much Discrimination and social alienation. This belief system goes back 1000's of years although India is certainly not the only nation with a caste system in society of people divided by wealth. The people on the deserted island would find this difficult because the values and caste in society would no longer hold true. Perhaps Marx had some insight into the future of the world when he proposed this theories and the theories seem to be right on the target. The premise here was to take 6 groups of people and look at how they would interact with each other. So we take 6 groups of people from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds they add up a total of thirty people and place them on an island. How would they......

Do Monopolies Exist?

...Week Three Assignment: Do Monopolies Exist? Name Ashford University Eco 100 Instructor Date Week Three Assignment: Do Monopolies Exist? To answer the question of the existence of monopolies does not require an extensive discovery process. A simple flick of the light switch on the way out to mail a letter should be enough evidence to convince an otherwise skeptical public of the existence of monopolies. A monopoly is established when the barriers of entry into its market is sufficient to block out its competitors and when the price elasticity of demand is such that the firm can charge as much or as little as possible to its customers. Though it is true that “all firms compete for consumer dollars” (Brue and Flynn, 2010, pg. 237), all firms are not created equal. A monopoly’s customers will give the firm their money regardless as long as the firm keeps its potential competitors at arms-length. If you wish to send a first-class letter, there is no other viable option other than the United States Postal Service (USPS). This is because the barrier of entry into this market strong enough to block all other firms. The USPS has competitors in the parcel delivery service; UPS, DHL, and FedEx to name a few. However, none of those firms can compete with the price of sending a letter (currently $.45) to anywhere in the United States. Of course, if the postal service were to significantly raise the postage rate competition would surely ensue. The same......

Alien

...Alien is a 1979 science-fiction film directed by Ridley Scott, and starring Tom Skerritt, Sigourney Weaver, Veronica Cartwright, Harry Dean Stanton, John Hurt, Ian Holm and Yaphet Kotto. The film's title refers to a highly aggressive extraterrestrial creature that stalks and kills the crew of a spaceship. Dan O'Bannon wrote the screenplay from a story he wrote with Ronald Shusett, drawing influence from previous works of science fiction and horror. The film was produced through Brandywine Productions and distributed by 20th Century Fox, with producers David Giler and Walter Hill making significant revisions and additions to the script. The titular Alien and its accompanying elements were designed by Swiss surrealist artist H. R. Giger, while concept artists Ron Cobb and Chris Foss designed the human aspects of the film. Alien garnered both critical acclaim and box office success, receiving an Academy Award for Best Visual Effects,[5][6] Saturn Awards for Best Science Fiction Film, Best Direction for Scott, and Best Supporting Actress for Cartwright,[7] and a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, along with numerous other award nominations.[8] It has remained highly praised in subsequent decades, being inducted into the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress in 2002 for historical preservation as a film which is "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".[8][9][10] In 2008, it was ranked as the seventh-best film in the science fiction genre by......

Ufo and Aliens

...UFOs as flying discs and aliens were pictured with small bodies, huge heads and big eyes. According to Geppert, “Science continue[d] to struggle: Are we alone in the universe? Some believed that, in the future-saturated Space Age, the age-long wait for an answer had finally come to an end. At last, ‘they’ were here” (335-353). In analyzing the situation, scientists are having a hard time determining an answer to these unexpected events. We all ask that question to when we look at the night sky; it’s hard not to when we see the universe exactly as it is – huge. People have waited a long time to find out if we are alone in the universe. Finally, with all these sightings, we know the answer. In another article titled “The Ordinary Nature of Alien Abduction Memories,” Mahzarin Banaji, a professor of psychology at Yale University, argues that UFO abduction and aliens are not real. According to Banaji, people who have reported alien abduction share similar personalities, beliefs and cultures. They make up these stories of being captured by extraterrestrial beings for experiments and then returned back to Earth to collect human data to escape their self-awareness. Banaji claims that, “The person first become[s] aware of a change in the significance of some object, event, idea, or memory. This awareness then stimulates attempts to describe and explain to change itself” (133-134). In short, humans want to be the best among others. People who report alien abductions change......

Aliens Exist: Argumentative Essay

...Wes Bodnar Mrs. Mckeown Honors English 10 9 December 2015 Extraterrestrial Life Really Does Exists Philosophers and astronomers alike have always been always asked one question, “Are we alone?” The existence of alien life has been a controversial topic since before the earliest civilizations. There have been countless hoaxes trying to prove the existence of aliens, but there are also a number of compelling reasons that support the existence of alien life. For example, there is a high probability they exist based on statistics, because life can travel from planet to planet, and there have been thousands of extraterrestrial sightings and encounters; it is highly probable that aliens exist. First off, aliens can be proven to be real by some simple probability and statistics. Our solar system is just one of tens of billions of solar systems in just the Milky Way Galaxy. There are so many possibilities of life in just one galaxy, and there are hundreds of billions of galaxy’s in the universe! Earth is just one of a seemingly endless amount of planets, so it’s hard to imagine that Earth has the only abundance of life in the entire known universe. Also, in the article, “The Likelihood of Extraterrestrial Life” it explains that all humans are made up of three main elements: hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon. Actually, all known life is mainly composed of these “ingredients”. This knowledge suggests that there are many extraterrestrials to be found across the cosmos because......

It is the way that we let external factors affect us that determines who we are. As individuals we all have the freedom to choose our own path and that is what life is all about.

God created man and he had given man a free will to choose who he may serve. Out of this became all different kinds of religions, teaching, and gods, but none are not as powerful as the god all mighty Jesus Christ, who created the heaven and the earth. Before mankind, god create all things on this earth and in the universe and after he said it was prefect. Then god created Adam in his likeness to rule over the land and to serve him in true. Adam was a very obedience man who did all that god wanted him to do, but it was short live, because, when god look at Adam and said to him you are lonely in this garden, I will be creating a mate for you from one of your rib and so he did.

Do Monopolies Exist

...sheltered from rivals; all firms compete for consumer dollars. If that is so, then pure monopoly does not exist. Do you agree?" Fully explain your answer in a way that shows your understanding of “monopolies.” I do agree that a pure monopoly does not exist. I say this because no matter the product there are usually some competitors. There is the argument that nothing is like the original but it doesn’t take long for similar products to reach the market. Less expensive and similar products often do well because of the consumers desire to keep up with trends. Another reason to exclude the idea of a pure monopoly is the competition. If a truly pure monopoly did exist there wouldn’t be a need to change its product. Even if one company had a truly unique product it still had to compete with other products to distinguish itself as a better product. A company must compete with itself to keep coming up with new and better products to keep its loyal customers loyal. All markets are driven by its consumers. Just as companies have freedom of choice so does the consumer and it is this choice that, to me, makes it impossible to have a monopoly. Let me explain. No matter the product, if the consumer isn’t willing to pay the cost the company has set, it must adjust to the consumers’ demands, because of this dependence on the consumers’ choice I feel a pure monopoly doesn’t exist. I watched an interview on television just prior to the release of the first IPhone. The panel was......

The Mystery Behind the Spiritual Alien Agenda

...The Mystery Behind the Spiritual Alien Agenda Beryl King 12 March 2012 The Search for Earth-like Planets December 5, 2011 must have been an exciting day for astronomers all over the world as NASA announced to the public the discovery of an Earth-like planet potentially able to support life. The planet, 2.4 times the size of the Earth, is six hundred light-years away in what astronomers call the “Goldilocks Zone”, an area in which a planet has an ideal temperature because of its distance from a star. It orbits around a star similar to the sun of the Earth, and the temperature of its surface is habitable at 77 degrees Fahrenheit. Scientists are hopeful that this planet might possess water and land, but they are not sure as of the moment if the majority of it is made up of solid, liquid or gas (Bloxham). Kepler 22-b is just one of the extrasolar planets observed by NASA that has a probability to be inhabited by extraterrestrial life forms. Since 1960, NASA has funded different exobiology projects, including Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), in hopes that astronomers can find evidences of life in outer space. Thinking that extraterrestrials would likely leave something behind to signal other intelligent beings during their exploration, astronomers of SETI previously tried to detect interstellar probes to be able send messages back to them, but until now, none have been discovered. Despite this, scientists working on SETI have not given up, focusing more......
