My friend Mike over at What's Happening Vegas? had an interesting post that I thought would translate into a good post for this blog. He mentions a guy by the name of Robert Lazar who claims to have worked in the notorious Area 51 and had the opportunity to study alien spacecraft. What if it this guy was telling the truth? Granted, the guy is probably a crackpot, but it is kind of fun to toss around the idea isn't it? I tend to be in the camp that believes aliens do exist, though I don't know if alien contact has actually occurred or not. The funny thing about people like Lazar is that they are believable precisely because they claim government conspiracy. Doesn't almost everyone believe the government is concealing at least something of significance from the public? It isn't much of a stretch to think that they would conceal alien contact is it? Movies like Men in Black and TV shows like X-Files base much (if not all) their storylines on the government-hides-the-aliens premise. What is interesting to me about Lazar though is that he isn't another I was abducted type who we all generally dismiss without thought; though I don't know if he is generally taken much more seriously. But this is a topic I frankly don't know much about. Have any of you heard or read anything credible on this subject? Or do you pretty much assume it's all bunk?
