This one is gonna be a little out of my usual realm of posts. But we all know those people who think there are aliens out there. UFO conspiracy theorists. Well I am not here to prove those people wrong. I can’t prove nor disprove their existence.
But let me put a spin on this. Look at all the animals that have been here since, well…forever. Sharks, whales, turtles, insects, birds, etc have been around for millions and millions of years. Like hundreds of millions of years. Humans have been on Earth, from what I could find on Google, for “only” seven million years. Actually between five and seven million years. So…why am I bringing this up? Has it ever occurred to you that to the creatures that have been here since the Earth formed might see us as aliens? Seriously.
And let me take this a step further. Maybe the animals we have as pets see us as slave masters. We essentially took animals out of their natural habitats (still do!) and train them to do what we want. Look at dogs for example. We train them to do things merely to make us happy. And yes, while dogs seem happy with positivity from their “masters”, I can’t help but wonder what is going on in their heads.
Cats are the same way. Now cats are more self-sufficient and independent than dogs, but we still basically altered them and their existence and DNA for our own company. Reptiles are the same way. We take wild animals out of their homes and keep them in our own homes as pets.
Maybe this is turning into a post for PETA, but I have to think. Do the animals who were here before us and didn’t go extinct, do they think “Where the Hell did these weird-looking things come from?!” Actually, maybe this is one giant 360. Maybe the space aliens are subconsciously telling us what to do and we, in turn, are doing the same to animals here on Earth. Maybe one day everything will be explained. But who knows?
So what do you think? Are we the aliens here or is this a crackpot theory? Let me know in the comments and thanks for reading!
