Why are aliens from outer-space so hard for people to believe?

Report as

1 - Most people don't think about it.

2 - When they do, they think about extraterrestrials coming here. THAT is what they don't believe.

Face it, all the people who talk about ETs coming here sound like kooks. The aliens built (or helped build) the Egyptian Pyramids ... or the Nazca Lines ... or whatever? Why? Allegedly for navigation. Really? They could navigate between planets fine - but need primitive markings to navigate around a single planet? I laugh at the idiocy.

Yeah, those reasons in specific, seem a little far fetched
Report as
I never heard of the navigation theory. Where did you read it?
Report as
@ akil ... it's brought up every time they have a show on the History or Discovery Channels, when they try to explain WHY the ETs built (or helped build) those things.

If something like the human race was to come into existence, why not another somewhere else?

It would clash with many religions, and its just really hard to think that there are life forms out there.

It would kind of mess up our old concept of being the "crown of creation" and that we are Gods special creation. If aliens can come here it would mean they are much higher developed than we are. That's depressing for some.

It's hard for some people to accept things like that. I haven't seen them either, but that doesn't mean I can just say they AREN'T there. I believe there are things out there, living beyond or in this galaxy.

Religion. Religion is something that should've never been created. Religious people would claim that aliens are demons. They are under a spell and need to wake up. Plus, some people can't handle the truth. Aliens have been here longer than we have. They live underground and there have been lots of UFO sightings. I see and here them myself. I know I'm not going crazy because my father's dog starts barking whenever something weird is flying in the sky. The aliens are here on earth, they are on other planets and they are way more advanced than we are (just throwing that out there) but you can believe what you want to believe. I can't tell this anyone since they think I'm talking bullcrap.

What does religion have to do with this question?

Religion is the reason why people don't believe in this type of stuff. You just don't realize that. It screws up people's mind.

I didn't think there could be life on other planets I think it is impossible.

There are still undiscovered planets in our solar system, and there are millions of other solar systems that have planets. You mean to tell me that Earth is the only planet that supports life?
Report as
There's tons of life underwater, too. Plenty of animals that don't breathe air, and you don't have to go very far to see those!

Because there's not really any proof. I have a hard time believing in aliens, yet I believe in Big Foot and the Lochness Monster. :o

But why does there need to be proof?
Report as
Because it's hard to believe without proof. It's hard to imagine something living under the circumstances of space and other planets.

Same reason people have a hard time believing in Gd. its an obscure idea that they dont really understand.
Also, the aliens wipe our memories every month at the full moon.
