There are more theories about the existence of aliens on Earth than UFO sightings flying around. But once in a while, an individual with a large audience will tie them together, coming up with some theory about UFOs and the presence of extraterrestrial creatures on Earth.

One such theorist took to Twitter recently to air their opinion. However, Elon Musk, ex-CEO of the blue-bird app, was quick to discredit the rumor.

Quintessential People Spreading the UFO Theory

Most of the prominent voices behind UFO theories in recent years are either military veterans or just have large online followings. For example, there are some social media celebrities that are staunch ufologists.

However, the opinion of veterans that once worked with certain government agencies tends to enjoy more welcoming ears. A good example to cite is former Israeli space security chief Haim Eshed.

Different Shades of Ufology Theory

In 2020, Eshed claimed the United States has been in contact with a “Galactic Federation” which has proceeded to start conducting experiments on Earth. Thus, he strongly believes there are already aliens living among us.

In fact, he went further to claim that the US has assisted this civilization from space to build underground bases on Mars. However, Eshed is yet to provide any evidence to support his many claims.

Propaganda Does Not Respect Formal Education

Similar to Eshed, US Air Force veteran David Grusch claims the federal government has captured a craft that does not originate from Earth. According to him, the existence of the UFO is top secret.

Various excuses have been offered for the inability to provide concrete pieces of evidence to back up the widespread UFO theories. For example, Grusch claims protecting national security is rationale for not divulging the evidence in his possession.

Musk Grows Tired of Unsubstantiated Theories

Grusch decided to become a whistle-blower against the US government, and NewsNation published the news. On June 6th, Elon Musk responded to a tweet by a Twitter user, stating that none of the UFO theories have been substantiated so far.

US agencies concerned with space flight – like NASA – have stated they’ve probed but lack access to information on the existence of extraterrestrials on Earth.

Why Elon Musk Is Worthy of Credence

If you’re wondering what gave Musk the confidence to speak on the subject as though he were an authority, the answer is, “everything.” Musk’s position as the CEO of SpaceX, a company that manufactures rockets and spacecraft, makes him as (if not more) qualified to air his views on the topic as Eshed and Grusch.

The billionaire has launched at least four astronauts to NASA and is not new in space-related matters.

Who Else But Musk?

In an interview with Fox News, Elon Musk was asked about his thoughts concerning extraterrestrial civilization establishing contact with humans. “I think if anyone would know about aliens on Earth it would probably be me. Yeah, I’m, you know, very familiar with space stuff. And I’ve seen no evidence of aliens …” he said.

But he didn’t stop there. He went ahead to let the world know that he’ll be glad to tweet about it the second he discovers one because “the fastest way to get a defense budget increase would be to pull out an alien.”

He’s Got More Eyes in the Sky

Given Musk’s consistent contact with space and how strongly he has stood his ground about its non-existence, many have taken his word for it.

Of particular note is a Twitter user who noted that “He probs has more eyes in the sky than NASA. He 💯 believes there are other life forms out in the universe but visiting us no.” “People keep saying there will be an alien invasion false flag lol,” another commented.

The Making of the AARO

The authorities have finally succumbed to mounting public pressure to respond to the controversy concerning aliens on Earth. Even though government agencies, especially NASA still maintain there’s no evidence to support UFO theories, they’ve expanded a task force which they renamed All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) to address the growing concerns.

The public has never been more curious about this subject than they are now. As such, setting up the group at this time is a wise decision.

The Task Force's Task

Speaking on the task force’s primary responsibility, the Pentagon released a statement saying that the AARO’s mission would be to “synchronize efforts across the Department of Defense, and with other U.S. federal departments and agencies, to detect, identify and attribute objects of interest in, on or near military installations, operating areas, training areas, special use airspace and other areas of interest.”

We hope that they’ll live up to expectations and eventually put an end to these debates.
