5 Pieces of Evidence That Suggests Intelligent Alien Life Exists

Skeptics and believers are constantly combating each other as to whether or not there is intelligent life in the universe. Skeptics use lack of evidence as their main offensive and defensive weapon, but here I will submit to you 5 amazing pieces of evidence that suggests that intelligent extraterrestrial life exists.

1. UFOs In Ancient History



George Bernard Shaw once famously quipped, “We learn from history that we learn nothing from history”. This quote is fitting to this piece of evidence that suggests the UFO phenomenon has been around as long as human civilization has existed and yet it is consistently dismissed. Today many UFO sightings are often explained away as being the US military testing some new technological weapon or plane, but this explanation cannot be used in a time when human flight was impossible.

The painting above is titled “The Madonna with Saint Giovannino” and dates back to around the 15th century. The painting depicts the Virgin Mary in the foreground, and in the background is what appears to be a man looking up in awe at an object that is strikingly similar to our modern day perception of a UFO.

This is not the only example of UFOs in ancient art. There are literally hundreds of examples of objects in the sky in many paintings spanning across the centuries. Strangely, the majority of the paintings depict UFOS in connection with a spiritual figure or experience. This could be how the people of the period interpreted the things they were seeing or perhaps there is a literal connection between the spiritual and UFOs.

Erich von Däniken, author of the famous and controversial Chariots of The Gods, suggests that our gods and angles maybe intelligent aliens. In the Old Testament, The Book of Ezekiel discusses an encounter with a strange flying object made of metal that took the shape of a wheel. Inside were four living creatures that looked like humans. Many people believe the Bible to be the literal word of God; it should be especially hard for those people to ignore this evidence. It is the Gospel after all.

Many may have a hard time taking the theories of Däniken seriously, but even respected astrophysicist Carl Sagan believed that we should seriously consider the possibility that extraterrestrial contact occurred in the past, so we should not completely dismiss this idea.

2. Astronauts have seen UFOs



Three days into the Apollo 11 flight the astronauts on board sent a strange message to mission control asking, “Do you have any idea where the S-4B is with respect to us?” The astronauts were asking where the final stage of the rocket was, which had been detached two days prior. The reason for this inquiry was because something was riding along side of the rocket and if it wasn’t part of the rocket, Apollo 11 had a visitor.

The crew on board did not want to make a big deal out of the object for fear that it would cause a panic and mission control would order the astronauts to abandon the mission. “The three of us were not going to blurt out, ‘hey Houston we got something moving along side of us and we don’t know what it is’ we weren’t about to do that…someone might of demanded we turn back because of aliens or whatever it is,” said astronaut Buzz Aldrin when discussing the situation at a later date.

Mission control did answer the astronaut’s cryptic question about the location of the S-4b unit. The unit was 6,000 miles from their location. What Aldrin and the other three astronauts were looking at was an Unidentified Flying Object exhibiting an intelligent flight path. In fact, according to Dr. David Baker, an Apollo 11 Senior Scientist, astronauts seeing UFOs is not uncommon and dates back to the early earth orbit space flights.

If your friend who works at the video store claims to have seen a sea monster, his story has very little credibility. If an experienced Naval Captain claims to have seen a sea monster then his sighting has tremendous credibility. If experienced and respected astronauts are seeing evidence of intelligent life outside of Earth it should also be taken very seriously.

3. The Wow Signal



In 1977, at Ohio Sate University, The Big Ear radio telescope picked up an unusual signal. Big Ear used numbers and letters to determine the strength of a signal, 0 being meaningless noise and Z being a strong radio signal. An astronomer, Dr. Jerry R. Ehman, studying the data from the telescope was shocked when a radio signal clocking in at ‘6EQUJ5’ came from a seemingly empty spot in space. Ehman was so shocked that he circled the signal on the data sheet and simply wrote ‘Wow’.

The transmission lasted 37 seconds and came from the Sagittarius constellation. Even more interesting is the fact that the nearest star in that specific direction is 220 million light years away. In other words, the signal came from an empty spot in space. It is also interesting to note that the signal had all the characteristics of an interstellar broadcast.

Some have tried to explain that the signal is somehow of an Earthly origin, but this seems unlikely as the signal was in a frequency that is internationally banned on Earth. The conclusion that has the most evidence going for it is that it is of an extraterrestrial origin, and because there are no stars near where the signal was found one can conclude that it came from a spacecraft manned by intelligent entities.

4. The Drake Equation



N = the number of civilizations in our galaxy with which communication might be possible;
R* = the average rate of star formation per year in our galaxy
ƒp = the fraction of those stars that have planets
ne = the average number of planets that can potentially support life per star that has planets
ƒℓ = the fraction of the above that actually go on to develop life at some point
fi = the fraction of the above that actually go on to develop intelligent life
ƒc = the fraction of civilizations that develop a technology that releases detectable signs of their existence into space
L = the length of time such civilizations release detectable signals into space.

Radio astronomer Frank Drake developed the Drake equation so he could estimate the number of planets harboring intelligent life in the galaxy by taking into consideration the factors listed above. A rigorous estimate using the Drake Equation was implemented in 2001, which also took into consideration the number of planets that are in the habitable zone (The habitable zone is an area around a star were water is in liquid form, temperature is ideal, and photosynthesis is possible). The results found that hundreds of thousands of life-bearing planets statistically should exist. It also suggested that a habitable planet like the Earth should exist just a few hundred light years away.

I find it unfair if I did not now also give equal mention to the Fermi paradox. The Fermi paradox states that if so many planets exist with intelligent life why is there a lack of contact between the intelligent life and us and why is there such a lack of physical evidence of said intelligent life. The paradox exists in that the Drake equation statistically proves life should be abundant and yet physical evidence says otherwise. It is hard to combat the arguments from the Fermi paradox except that some physical evidence does exist as you can see from this writing.

5. SETI Radio Signal February 2003



In 2003, astronomers with the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) used a massive telescope to examine sections of the sky where they had previously found unexplained radio signals. They found another radio signal that was even stronger than what they had previously found.

The signal came from an area in space where there are no planets or stars and strangely was at a frequency that hydrogen absorbs, ensuring that the signal would be strong and could travel great distances. The signal was detected on three separate occasions.

“The signal is moving rapidly in frequency and you would expect that to happen if you are looking at a transmitter on a planet that’s rotating very rapidly and where the civilization is not correcting the transmission for the motion of the planet,” Says USB researcher Eric Korpela. Considering the signal operates as if it is intelligently operated and the fact that it was detected multiple times one has to consider this SETI signal the best candidate for proof of intelligent life on other planets.

  1. It is best to look at science with the thought in mind, “We cannot possibly know all the answers.” or, like they say in fighting sports, “There is always someone bigger, stronger, or faster.”

    When you think about the possibility of life existing elsewhere do not limit yourself in your ability to imagine the possibilities by stating, “We are alone.” etc, etc.

    What we know of chance is irrelevant. What we know of history is irrelevant. What we determine to be proof is irrelevant.

    The only thing which matters is so simple, “Do you, or do you not believe there is life outside of our planet?”

    In which case you are right in whatever your opinion is. We cannot possibily know whether we are wrong, but the potential that we may be right (if our answer is a ‘yes’) certainly does exist. ;) Life is beautifully simple.

  2. People must keep an open mind, there is a possibility that extraterrestrial life exists outside of earth. There is also the possibility that god or A GOD of some sort exists. And Dave, if aliens didn’t exist, that doesn’t prove god would either. Proof of god and aliens are both equal in evidence, thoughts and theories have been said but no concrete evidence has been publicly displayed. Ignorance like this is what hurts the “here and now” just like how the dark ages halted technology and science with claims of anyone who was innovative being a witch or wizard.
    I leave you with that!

  3. Aaron L, The problem with the God idea is it’s inability to reconcile supernatural characteristics with a universe contingent upon predictable and demonstrable cosmological constants. Demonstrating concrete evidence for such an idea (which varies in a conundrum of interpretations ranging from deism to theism to pantheism, would be extremely difficult. Thus, proof of God cannot be equated to evidence for extraterrestrial life, given its lack of uniformity of definition, and capacity to avoid demonstrable material evidence due to supernatural characteristics. In addition, God, aside from being a rather primitive idea, can be injected into any pocket of ignorance in any area humans study, making him a better metaphor for the unknown rather than the Prime Mover. That aside, it is highly improbable that Earth is the only location in the known universe where life exists. It is finding that life that is the issue.

  4. Dave, you’re a fag.

  5. I find it humorous to think our mental capacity could even comprehend details included in a God theory, and to decline opportunity to perceive such possibility is only conceit. Furthermore the same is true with an alien theory, which could also coincide with a God theory, and believing otherwise is to be “closed minded”. Aaron L., as for your mention of “cosmological constants”, this too is only theory, as even the speed of light, mentioned in Einsteins’ theories”, has recently been found to not be constant and can actually be slowed by a temperature quotient. There are too many unanswered questions to think we have enough information, or possibly unable to conceive that amount of information, to answer such questions.

  6. dave you are a moron. i like most, the last sentence that you posted. “I am really sorry that some people will spend their whole lives chasing something that does not exist rather than focusing the here and now.” wow. i think that all of us who have scientific belief systems rather than belief systems based on fairytales could agree on the fact that your statement describes YOU best. religious people will spend their whole lives chasing something with absolutely zero plausible evidence. you believe that there is a magical god that created the entire universe? and before the universe was created by “God”, where did god live if there was no existence? i think the probability of that is much lower than the probability of another of the millions and millions of planets contains intelligent life greater than ours. the here and now isn’t religion created by fear of death. it is the hundreds of thousands of evidential factors suggesting that aliens may exist.

  7. There is more evidence than you can imagine. Just look in the Spirit and Opportunity pictures and judge for yourselves. Use light and darken controls to see pictures that are not optimal.
    No conjecture here, just proof.

  8. The universe is 13.8 light years which is very very large amount of space who is not to say in that amount of space that one or two civilization still are around and living very will in the zone that can Havering life there and there could be thousands who knows tell telescopes can advancing enough to see deeper and to new depths

  9. I could not understand why these 5 says written by the Author?

  10. The Fermi paradox proves nothing. Maybe these alien planets don’t have the technology to find other habited planets, yet are still intelligent. I mean, we consider our planet habited by intelligent life and I don’t see us calling a little green man on our IPhones. Or maybe they are so advanced that they have put us in the unintelligent pile. Maybe they tried to contact us in the past, like during Mayan times, but discontinued the research because we have no interesting qualities. OR maybe they are more advanced and are meddling in our lives to help guide us on a path where we can all accept the fact that there is life on other planets. That could explain our rapid advancement in technology.

  11. To Keith,
    I highly doubt the universe is only 13.8 light years big. We all thought the ancestors to the homo sapiens only went back a couple million years, but they found an ancestor skull that was 2 billion years old. And that’s on our own planet. Plus, our technology isn’t advanced enough. We can only see other galaxies and just got a satellite ( dont quote me on satellite part. Cant remember exactly if its a satellite but i know some sort of robotics did this) out of our own galaxy. Unless they saw a sign that said ” center of universe here” we have no idea. Even with carbon dating we can’t tell that is the center of the universe. I just believe one day we will find out that hey! We were wrong on this! Oh and I want you to remember I said this, so you can say that a sixteen year old with no training whatsoever figured it out before modern scientists. That’s M-A-D-I-S-O-N.

  12. my small brain has a thoery about God..
    according to this thoery god has the following characteristics
    1.He is a scientist and this universe is a scientific laboratory.
    2.we are very small and he is looking at us through a microscope.
    3.the whole universe is contained in a test tube or at most an aquarium.
    4.this universe is an experiment of a very limited time period,probably a few hours
    at His time rate.
    5.He is not concerned with evil or good,heaven or hell but to see how much life can develop
    in certain amount of time.

  13. aliens have made our life span seventy to eieghty years long cause they know we will find out all the secrets because we r clever than them they afraid

  14. Its just the way of thinking that who created the universe some calls hi GOD and some calls ALIENS but the main fact is that how this whole universe created? Is there life exist outside our planet.as there is lot of signs of existence of super natural things and unordinary things.WE SHOULD TRY TO SOLVE THE MYSTERY OF SEA FROM WHERE WE CAN FIND LOT OF CLUES….Madison you may right that it may experiment of GOD but question still arises why is this so…There are lot of things we still not getting in right way…

  15. I’d hate to think all that open space is all for nothing. There has to be other life in the universe. Just because humanity lacks the skills and senses to find it does not mean it is not there. The same could be said about God and heaven.

    As scientific understanding of the universe we live in becomes clearer, it is religion that has become the “hard to believe” nonsense of our time. At least with the alien theories we have something to look for and study. Even if these beings prove to be very difficult to track/study. God is and (I believe) will always be something of the human imagination. Chances are that God and aliens are one and the same. We’re just to stupid to comprehend it.

    The opinions expressed here are my own. This post is not to incite arguments from the simple minded twits but rather to promote intelligent discussion.
