The general argument made by D.M. Murdock in her work, “Are UFO’s and Aliens Real?” is that there are a number of different types now complied under the heading of legendary “sky people,” humans, gods, and possibly aliens.

In conclusion, Murdock’s belief is that “obviously, none of these creatures is an alien however.” Murdock is right in my opinion because I have never once seen an alien or any sort of UFO. More specifically I believe that aliens are not real, but the sightings and reporting’s a form of hominid species. For example, with the discovery of homo floresiensis or “the hobbit,” which thrived 12,000 years ago, way before we discovered aliens.” Although Murdock might counter that UFO sightings have been dismisses as the planet Venus, many sightings are explainable by a man made phenomena, but some are not. I maintain that millions of people in the past few decades have reported seeing something that is clearly unidentifiable. Abduction by aliens has been mistaken as an hallucination. I don’t believe aliens are real, but the fact remains that some of them cannot be so easily dismissed.

UFOs—"Unidentified Flying Objects," not necessarily piloted by human creatures—have been buzzing around the sky for centuries. In modern times,...
