Freaky Friday - Are We the Freaks?

In H.G.Well's book, War of the Worlds, it isn't military superiority or human ingenuity that destroys the alien invaders. It is the bacteria on Earth.

Scientists who study other planets have asked the question: Are we the freaks because we have managed to live and thrive in an environment completely filled with bacteria?

In some ancient cave drawings and sculptures from ancient civilizations, they seem to depict beings in space suits. Could we have been visited by aliens in ancient times - but they had to wear the space suits so our personal bacteria and the bacteria found on Earth did not kill them?

Do you believe in life on other planets? Do you believe they might have traveled to Earth at some time in our past?

I love writing about conspiracies. When I look at the cave drawings, sculptures and art from around the world depicting the same type of beings in the same type of "space suits" I wonder about a book plot involving the world's governments and their combined efforts to keep the general population from learning that we have been visited by beings from other planets. The reason they'd keep it secret is simple: learning that we are not the only beings in the Universe would turn everything we've been taught upside down. Would it also lead to a breakdown of our civilization as we know it?

What do you think?
