The Alien Issue

by Renard Moreau

I have heard many stories about alien abduction from The United States of America. However, I have never heard about the same thing happening in The Republic of Trinidad And Tobago (Hmmm. Maybe they don’t abduct their kind).

On a more serious note, NASA has discovered lots of planets lately; some are believed to be great candidates for life as we know it.

Think of this: space is so vast; it is filled with countless suns, moons and planets. So, there is potential for life to flourish.

If you were to conduct a survey among citizens regarding alien lifeforms, many of them will tell you that we are not alone in the universe.

Some people are hoping that their governments come clean about the alien issue and are eagerly awaiting disclosure.

Some scientists and psychologists believe that it will have a serious impact on our psyches.

The church leaders will have to come up with a plausible explanation, because people were taught from a rather young age that we are the centre of the universe and that we were created in God’s image and likeness.

Even our educational institutions have taught us to believe that we are the only inhabited planet in the universe.

What would you do if you found out that everything we were taught was a lie?

Believe it or not, there are scientists who are placing their reputations at stake by claiming that we have been visited by alien beings in the past.

Then you have those scientists who would tell you that the visitation never stopped and it still happens today!

Are you prepared and willing to meet your galactic neighbours with open arms?

Hollywood has instilled some fear into the masses with a very popular movie that came out many years ago — “Independence Day.”

Anyway, I am not worried at all. If it is our destiny to openly interact with other alien species, it cannot be stopped; it must come to fruition (You never know. It may be way better than what we had expected).
