if the UFO phenomenon is evidence that aliens are visiting planet Earth, then the next question to ask is... why are aliens visiting? What do aliens want with humans? What are aliens trying to tell us? Are they nice? Are they mean? Do they care about us? Do they feel indifferent? According to the latest UFO research, multiple alien species may in fact be visiting the planet, and they may not be friendly. Here are the top five theories for what aliens want with humans...
1. They Want To Help Earth... With Conditions
All you have to do is read ancient religious texts (including the Christian bible) or watch superhero movies to understand the alien savior theory. Many ufologists and "Ancient Astronaut" theorists believe that extraterrestrials not only seeded life on Earth, but are actively engaged with humans and have their best interest in mind. There are many well-documented reports of UFOs disabling dangerous nuclear weapons, and of alien contactees receiving visions and telepathic messages that warn of impending destruction of the planet, due to human pollution and war. Many UFO Disclosure activists, however, believe that unless humanity changes its ways for the better, aliens won't be able to save us.
2. They Want to Control Earth
While many alien researchers and contactees look forward to extra-terrestrial contact, others aren't so welcoming. Maybe that's for good reason. If aliens exist, there are probably good and bad ones. They could be be battling it out above our heads (in the sky and in space), in secret underground bases, and via human institutions and wars. Tom Delonge, popular rocker/former Blink 182 guitarist and singer, thinks that's true to a degree. He claims to be in contact with the CIA and other government operatives in order to help disclose information about UFOs and ET visitation to the American people. He has learned that aliens may not be friendly, and that the US government has been secretly and actively studying and dealing with them for decades. Whether you believe this to be true or not, it is interesting all the same that our own US government is pushing this theory... Similarly, David Icke, a famous conspiracy theorist and former sports broadcaster, claims that many powerful people are in fact, not people at all, but aliens, shape-shifting reptilians to be exact, with an evil plan to take over the world and enslave humans, without humans ever learning of their existence.
3. They Want Human DNA
If you believe that accounts of alien abductions are real, then it's easy to subscribe to this theory. According to many abduction reports, people feel paralyzed and/or sedated and confused during an abduction, only to be returned back home safe and sound (much like how human scientists "catch and release" wildlife). Could extra-terrestrials be studying or even manipulating human DNA? This theory is given even more legs when you read ancient texts, which detail heavenly sky beings (as well as the giant Nephilim in the Bible) interbreeding with humans. There is actually growing scientific evidence to support this one! Some UFO researchers go so far as to say aliens are not just interested in human DNA, but the human soul, something aliens (or at least, some aliens) do not have.
4. They Want Earth Resources
Believe it or not, humanity's obsession with gold could be rooted in ancient memory. Zecharia Sitchin, the author who originally made the "Ancient Aliens" theory famous, proposed that an ancient race of extra-terrestrials called the Annunaki influenced all world religions. The Annunaki needed gold for the survival of their home planet, and so they used humans to mine gold on Earth for them. Whether or not you buy this theory, it's not hard to imagine aliens having use for the water, minerals, and animal life here on Earth. Considering how frequently aliens visit and even crash here, it's safe to assume there must be something of cosmic value about Earth!
5. They Want to Learn About Earth
Of all the theories as to what aliens want with humans, this might be the most relatable and least frightening. Just like humans, aliens are probably curious. As already mentioned, the alien abduction phenomenon indicates that extra-terrestrials routinely study and analyze humans, much in the same way that humans collect and tag wildlife to observe in nature. This might not be as scary of a theory, but it's something to consider the next time you are alone, and feel watched...
