On Jan.1 eyewitness say that eight to ten foot aliens were spotted roaming through a Miami mall.

Are aliens meandering the Earth?

Sorry, there was an error loading this poll.

On New Year’s Day, in the Bayside Marketplace in Miami there was supposedly a group of 50 teenagers who began a disturbance in the mall by setting off fireworks, leading to multiple arrests. However, many eyewitnesses say that 8-to-10-foot-tall extraterrestrials were spotted roaming around the mall, leading people to wonder if aliens have stepped foot onto Earth. 

There are many reasons why people believe this event isn’t just teenagers’ doing. The Miami airspace shut down, no media coverage was allowed, only black military helicopters were allowed to fly and there were even claims that people lost their power. 

“You’re a fool if you think aliens don’t exist,”  junior Maggie Connor said. “Yes, I do think aliens are inhabiting the earth. How would we know, we’re humans so we wouldn’t know. No way in the thousands and thousands and thousands of years we’ve been alive nothing has come from space.”

However, other people aren’t this extreme regarding their belief that aliens are inhabiting the earth, believing that aliens do exist but are not like the ones seen on Star Trek.

“I believe that aliens are out there somewhere because the universe is vast,” junior Amanda Gillon said. “But I do not believe that they are currently inhabiting Earth, as maybe they haven’t come that far yet with their technology.” 

The E.T. debate has spanned for decades, forming three distinct sides: believers, those who think it is all a hoax and those who have better things to do.

“I guess they could be on Earth.” sophomore Lucy Johnson said. 

This debate has spanned over centuries, some holding the belief that aliens were the ones that built some of the wonders of the world.

“I mean the pyramids; humans can’t build,” Connor says, “You think that all of this was built by people? Haven’t you seen the traffic lights? Who came up with those? And the roads, people didn’t build that. Aliens came down and built that.”

This discourse is not going to end anytime soon. As long as there are believers and skeptics, expect a war of the worlds in the near future. But in the meantime, focus on the now. 

“I don’t care, people are dying,” chorus teacher Ezra Prather said.
