Former NASA astronaut Alan Bean has stated that he does not believe Aliens have ever visited Earth.
In a recent interview with Australia’s News. Com. Au, Bean, one of only 12 people to have stepped foot on the moon, stated that he didn’t believe aliens had visited partly because advanced civilizations may be more altruistic than ours.
“One of the reasons I don’t believe they have been here is that civilisations that are more advanced are more altruistic and friendly — like Earth, which is better than it used to be — so they would have landed and said ‘we come in peace and we know from our studies you have cancer that kills people, we solved that problem 50 years ago, here’s the gadget we put on a person’s chest that will cure it, we will show you how to make it”
Most media and eyewitnesses tend to think Aliens are less than benevolent and they are usually represented as either unfathomable or downright dangerous in the media.
“I do not believe that anyone from outer space has ever visited the Earth, “
Of course, there is a sound scientific theory to suggest that aliens haven’t yet visited earth. The fermi paradox, for example, lists numerous reasons as to why aliens may not have visited earth yet if indeed they do exist.
The scarcity of intelligent life and the vastness of the universe, for example, may mean that it is unlikely that any two sentient species ever meet simply due to time and space. If one species evolves on a planet light years away from any other planets capable of sustaining life, it may be likely that the species flourishes and eventually die out millions of years before any other intelligent species near it evolve to the level of space exploration.
Differing to Bean’s theory, the fermi paradox and other alien theories tend to support the idea that aliens much like humans are the top predator in their environment. This predatory nature isn’t something that leads itself to altruism or cooperation with other species. If corporations, governments, and armies on earth are capable of exterminating people and exploiting natural resources on this planet, would they behave any differently faced with alien planets?
As for the credibility of Bean’s statements, despite a number of astronauts declaring support for the idea of aliens having visited the earth the majority of people associated with NASA still agree with his sentiments. This, however, could arguably be due to bias out of loyalty to NASA.
The other question is whether NASA or any other government agency that might have dealt with aliens would have granted clearance to an astronaut to know that they existed. Given that the government would not want the public to know about the existence of aliens, the fewer people as possible with clearance to know about them would be beneficial. Whether this clearance would necessarily extend to astronauts, seems unlikely.
