Description
Description: The Aliens are Not Among Us touch into the scientific theory that we are not the only living 'beings' in our universe. It touches into the theories of evolution and science and based on research that it is almopst close to impossible that we can be the ONLY living beings.

Summary
Summary: The aliens are not among us. The truth is out there—and it is that we are not being visited by extraterrestrials. A flying saucer didn’t crash at Roswell, we aren’t reverse engineering alien technology at Area 51, and otherworldly tourists, anatomists or anthropologists are abducting no one from their homes. There has always been speculation about lifeforms in the universe and numerous studies trying to back the speculations. Based off of different studies made, it would be highly unlikely that other beings don't exist.

Excerpt
Excerpt: Consider dolphins. Many believe that dolphins are intelligent, that they have language and that they experience many of the higher-order thought processes that we previously considered being the sole province of humanity. That’s just great for the dolphins—as they swim around in the ocean, seemingly carefree, playing with each other and amusing human biologists and tourists alike. But without fire they will never be able to alter their environment to build spaceships. Consider the dolphins again and let’s assume they are, or will be able to be, as intelligent as humans. Even without the fire issue, how will they be able to manipulate their environment to make things without hands and fingers? Better yet, how could they do this without opposable thumbs? Without the ability to grasp, making tools is much more difficult and making complex tools is likely impossible. So, from an evolution-to-space-traveling-species point of view, being a dolphin is a dead end.
