Maybe aliens are real.

Maybe they've already been here. Maybe some still are.

Maybe they don't look any different than us. Maybe they don't have big heads, weird skin, and big bulgy eyes. Maybe they look just like us. Maybe they're the same inside and outside. Maybe their blood is red. Perhaps they have a few evolutionary traits that are more or less advanced than us, but maybe they're able to blend in as "specially gifted." Maybe some humans can do those "special things" too.

Your best friend could be from another planet. Maybe you are. Maybe your parents never told you that you cam from another world. But you don't seem too different, do you? You look like humans, you speak like humans, you act like humans...

Maybe life forms on other planets aren't much different than us. Cultural differences, maybe, and perhaps the progress of their civilizations, are slower or faster than ours.

What if an entire society is from a different planet, just fitting in with us? Maybe France is from another planet. Maybe Australia is from another galaxy. Or maybe Canada and India are both from the same solar system.

Maybe America isn't native to Earth. Or maybe certain races aren't really human.

You might marry someone who's really an alien. You might have kids with them. But you would never know what they are because they're so much alike us. Your children would only be half human.

So what if this was all true. What if you found out your closest friends, be white, black, Mexican, Asian, Indian... or French, Irish, Canadian, Persian, African, Samoan... What if you found out your wife or husband, the love of your life, wasn't from Earth?

Would you treat them differently?
just a thought that crossed my mind one day

If they act human, then would they really be considered alien? Everyone expects aliens to be radically different. If they aren't, is there a reason to care?

What I think is there really is life other then us out there, but they're so far from us that there's no way to ever meet them. I mean, it takes years just to travel to Mars. And I seriously doubt life could ever survive in any other planet in our solar system besides Earth. :S
We may never meet a real alien :C But that's just my theory.

I wouldn't really. I might be wary of them for a bit because I'm a bit of a sci-fi fan, but also as a Doctor Who fan, not all aliens are wanting to harm us. After all, to them, we're the aliens

Like it. I had a discussion with a friend very similar to this after we'd watched Prometheus and he was adamant that any alien life in the universe will look like us. Who knows!

My stories kind of touch on a similar idea. A race known as the Elohim are visitors from a city built around a star called Thuban. My blog has myths and legends that come from this universe and hint at the lost age when the Elohim walked among us. you can find me at joslocomeb.wordpress.com

You watched that one episode of Twilight Zone didn't you? 

It was running the same idea you had posted here. 
I thought it was a cool concept.

Hehe well I thought I'd ask anyways.

I have my own theories about aliens, buuut I don't think
you'd like them ^^; 
That said I would like to not fight over it please? 

Still a cool concept! 
Maybe you could do a little web comic or something with an alien as the protagonist? Like maybe it could be looking at the world and everyday things through their eyes.
Could be a neat story.

AS long as they're not trying trying to f up my shiz, I'm pretty cool with just about anyone/ anything. I have a really hard time understanding how concepts like racism or any other kind of prejudice ever came about. Did someone suddenly just say one day "Hey, that person's different from me, that somehow automatically makes them better or worse than me." 

That was a bit off topic, but that's just what it brought to mind. ^^;

pretty much. and believe it or not, it really is white people's fault. i mean, the europeans saw the africans and were like "OMG their skin is dark! they must not matter!" like some people treat animals. then we went to africa to force christianity on them. racism and homophobia all come from "you're different from me, so i hate you." it's ignorance, pride, selfishness, and stubborness. it happens in schools too with cliques

Yeah, I know. But in truth, there is an evolutionary explanation for that kind of behavior. Back when humans lived in nomadic clans, they'd avoid others that were too different because it usually meant they were from a different clan, which normally meant they'd be unfriendly. But it just bothers me so much to think that, we call ourselves civilized, and yet we can't even recognize and suppress an obsolete evolutionary instinct. :no: Humans have a long way to go.

well, it's just like with laws; it had to have happened to make it the way it is. in some states it's illegal to give liquor to your goldfish. that means someone must've tried it. stereotypes are only stereotypes because people make them true. i'm not surprised that aliens are intimidated by us

Hm...that's true. Ha, and we already have ideas floating around that any aliens are probably going to be hostile. Imagine if aliens actually showed themselves in public. They could be totally docile, only to find themselves surrounded by crazed humans trying to "protect themselves". I'd want to stay hidden too. XD

I'd probably go "THAT'S FUCKING SWEEEEET" and the ask "... why hasn't this become public yet, what kind of trade embargo is this, What agender does your culture have?"

 

Although, if they're exactly the same race inside, outside, and genetically, I'd question if they were aliens as opposed to "Humans who happen to be born/descended form a different planet than earth."

it wouldn't be public because, just like racism and homophobia, it's "different" so it's not right

That's an intriguing question. I wonder the same thing sometimes... though I think it more likely that this could be true of some ancient cultures whose very mythologies say the same concept of their own origins or that of other cultures around them. And the world we live in now, today, which is so inebriated with references to the supernatural, could be a result of these different peoples' cultures and lifestyles converging and merging with humanity as we know it, as it was then to become what it is today. This is very fascinating to ponder... and there's a lot of evidence pointing to this possibility if you look at the history of humanity and the forming and development of society.
