1.6 – The Return (5.25.10)

“The worst mistake of First Contact, made throughout history by individuals on both sides of every new encounter, has been the unfortunate habit of making assumptions. It often proved fatal.”

– David Brin

There is evidence that suggests we experienced 20th-century alien contact: in 1942, the Battle of Los Angeles involved the U.S. Military and Air Defense. Allegedly fighting a UFO; WWII Allied Air Force planes were buzzed by balls of light that some think could have been extraterrestrial; and the alleged crash of a flying saucer in Roswell, NM, in 1947, propelled the world into the age of UFOs. For decades, some people have been sending messages out into deep space. What would happen if aliens answered…or came calling? What protocols exist to determine who would speak on behalf of mankind, and how might we communicate? What happens if they return? Some believe they already have.[7]

INTRODUCTION[7a]

Space ships over Los Angeles…body snatchers controlling our minds…ETs making contact. These and other alien-based scenarios have been the plot lines of countless science fiction movies and television shows. But what if extraterrestrial beings came to Earth tomorrow? Would they signal the birth of a new age of peace and prosperity, or trigger a war of the worlds?

“The day that it’s announced we’re not alone is the day that this planet changes forever.”

Nick Pope (British Ministry of Defense, 1985-2006),
(Author, Open Skies, Closed Minds)

“The very structure of government and the very structures of religion will crumble.”

Bill Birnes, J.D., Ph.D.
(Author / Publisher, UFO Magazine)

“Everybody wants to meet an alien. But we have to start small. We have to learn to walk before we can run.”

Sara Seager, Ph.D.
(Prof. of Planetary Sciences, MIT)

Millions of people around the world believe we have been visited in the past by extraterrestrial beings. What if it were true? Did Ancient Aliens really help to shape our history? And, if so, what might happen…when they return?
