My Top Ten (Favorite) Alien Conspiracy Theories:
2. Area 51: Another conspiracy hotbed, and also in New Mexico (clearly the place to be if you want to encounter aliens!). The most famous military installation of all time, and also not a secret . . . anymore. The only thing we don’t know about this place is whether it’s just an ordinary military base or if they’re conducting nefarious experiments involving alien autopsies.
3. Alien Reptilians (also know as “Annunaki”) have been here since the dawn of our civilization. (http://content.time.com/time/specials/packages/article/0,28804,1860871_1860876_1861029,00.html) Who are they? They’re the ones in charge, of course! According to conspiracy theorists, these reptilian humanoids plan to enslave us all, but first they will rule over us. They are our politicians, corporate giants, beloved heroes, and legends. So what are they waiting for? Your guess is as good as mine . . .
4. Human-Alien Treaties: In keeping with the whole “reptilian” thing, there are also several theories about treaties being made between us and the aliens—we give them humans to experiment on and they give us technology. These treaty theories go back to the Nazis, in which Nordic girls were traded for anti gravity technology.

5. Churchill and Eisenhower Meetings (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1299994/Churchill-Eisenhower-agreed-cover-UFO-encounter-WWII.html): There are claims that Churchill and General Eisenhower colluded on how best to cover up UFO encounters over Europe. Don’t believe me, check the link—there are drawings and everything. And you can’t argue with drawings.
6. Majestic 12: In the late 70s, documents that were supposedly signed by President Truman surfaced regarding a secret committee of scientists, military leaders, and government officials formed in 1947 to investigate UFO sightings. Theorists speculate that the documents contain information that proves the US Air Force concealed evidence of alien existence (including the crash at Roswell) although the government claims the documents are a hoax. If you were the government, what would you say?
7. Project Blue Book: Similar to the claims of the Majestic 12, Project Blue Book was formed to investigate claims of UFO sightings. The difference? This one is officially ON the record. Although by the time the project ended, it had collected 12,618 UFO reports, and concluded that most of them were misidentifications of natural phenomena, like weather, or conventional aircraft. Only a small percentage of UFO reports were classified as unexplained, even after stringent analysis, but names and other personal information of all witnesses have been redacted.
8. The real Men In Black (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Men_in_Black): You’ve seen the movie, but what if the Men In Black were real? And what if, instead of being a government agency in charge of tracking down rogue aliens and threatening UFO witnesses, they were actually aliens themselves? That’s what some people believe . . . hence the reason for the sunglasses. And yes, they probably say stuff like: “I make this look.”
9. The M-Triangle: Located near the Ural Mountains in Russia, this 40-square mile piece of wilderness has been called "Heaven on Earth." The M-Triangle has plenty of UFO sightings and paranormal activity, but people who visit there claim to feel physically and mentally better than when they went in. Some even claim they've had serious illnesses cured just by traveling through the M-Triangle.
10. Devil’s Hole (http://mysteriousuniverse.org/2011/08/mel-waters-and-the-devils-holes/): This is probably my favorite. Why, you ask? Because this place plays prominently in my upcoming release THE TAKING. Never heard of Devil’s Hole? Well, I’m not surprised. It’s not exactly well known, but this mysterious “hole” in eastern Washington is said to be a font of alien activity. (I feel a road trip coming on!)
