Late one night, when I was just a lad, I saw Lights in the Sky. UFO’s. I was standing on the back porch of our family home. The year was 1975 and in the high summer. The porch was a long as the house, and stood some fifteen feet wide. The outer edge was lined by windows made of two by fours and screened in to keep out the bugs that live to invade people’s personal space; the gnats and mosquitoes grow to giant proportions in the deep South. The town we lived in is Moncks Corner, South Carolina. It’s about 20 miles to the North of Charleston.
Aliens are by and large one of the most accepted phenomenon on the planet earth today. Even if a person does not believe in ghosts or other aspects of the supernatural, they might believe that our universe is inhabited by other intelligent creatures than Humans. The reason for this lays in the work of a scientist who lived to write a book called The Origin of the Species. While this was not the first idea on evolution, it cemented the idea into our current society has has been running full tilt ever since.
