Surprise Saturday: It was 70 years ago Today! Roswell
Hello Underdogs, and a Happy Saturday to you all!
It was 70 years ago today that the world started arguing about alien life, and never stopped. This is the day that the headline, ” RAAF Captures Flying Saucer on the Ranch in Roswell,” splashed across the world. In the hot desert of Roswell, New Mexico, a unidentified craft crashed. The Military was called in to inspect the site. From there, we only have speculation because the official story has been changed more than one time.
The official story is that the crash was an unfortunate issue with a test weather balloon. It crashed causing a lot of light, some fire, and a whole lot of fear. However, this was the story that was released after the initial story was published. The original story was that there was a crash outside a farm in Roswell. It was a craft that was unlike anything seen every before. There were several beings who had died, and some that had survived. Officials from the government were there to clean up, and take away the bodies. You can see the original headline above. However, the next day, the paper was forced to print a retraction and replaced the old story with the weather balloon story.
So what really happened that day? No one knows for sure, but we all can agree that there was a crash at the location. If it was a weather balloon, it sure caused a lot of problems. People who worked in the Air Force said that they saw bodies that were small, like the size of a child. Some had survived the crash, and those who did were taken away while the dead were rushed off to be studied. People have written books and told their stories but they were met with denial from the government, or laughter from their peers.
After that, the flood gates seemed to be opened for stories of aliens, abductions, and more. Visitors from other world’s were not new in science fiction, but for the first time it became a topic that everyone was discussing. This put the real possibility of aliens, and government cover-up front and center. People to this day site this incident as the start of their passion to find the truth about aliens. From then on, people on both sides of the fence made their thoughts known. This includes people who were working for the government, and their very belief in the E.T. could jeopardize their jobs. All of a sudden, aliens crashing and taking over the world were in art, books, and the TV. People were no longer staying silent with their beliefs, for the most part.
Of course when there is anything that goes against the norm, people will find something to ridicule. If someone comes forward with their testimony of alien life, the first thing that happens is doubt. People who believe in aliens have been made out to be dumb, rednecks, who were most likely on a bender and made the whole thing up. This notion has worked so well, that this is now an almost automatic response when the topic of alien life comes up. I guess if you know you are going to be made fun of, and have your sanity called into question, you may be more likely to keep your mouth shut. When you question the government, that opens a whole new can of worms. There are people who will deny that our very own government is capable of covering up anything at all. Why would they cover up aliens? I guess it doesn’t matter that this is the very same government that experimented with African American men with syphilis, gave people LSD, and are watching us through Smart TV’s and Smart Phones. Why, indeed, would they cover up anything like alien?
Roswell was historic no matter what you believe happened that day. For the first time, people were seeing that there was a cover up. The official story didn’t match with the eye witnesses. There is something true about the power of suggestion, but I truly believe that this gave people a platform to start their research and their passions. It did a lot for a small town that is still famous today. People truly believe something out of this world happened that day and from then on, the silence was broken. I personally think that it is very vain to believe that there is no other life forms out there. We have no way to measure our universe, let alone all of them. It is more likely that there are others out there than us being the only beings. I have no idea what happened at Roswell, but I am guessing it was more than what the official story was since it was changed the very next day. Like one famous agent said, “The Truth is out there.”
What do you think? Are aliens real? Was Roswell a cover up, or just a misunderstanding. Leave your comments below.
