Washington: Former US President Bill Clinton seems to be a big fan of the movie Independence Day or Mars Attack, in which aliens invade planet earth.
With this belief brewing inside him, the former president said on Wednesday that “we may not be alone”.
According to reports, Clinton, during an appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live made public his opinions on aliens when he was pressed by host Jimmy Kimmel on whether he had seen any classified information while in office proving the existence of aliens.
While Clinton said that he had “all the Roswell papers reviewed” and had found no clear evidence that aliens exist, he also said that he wouldn’t be shocked if intelligent life existed outside our planet or even if extraterrestrials visit Earth one day.
“We know now that we live in an ever-expanding universe,” Clinton was quoted as saying.
“We know that there are billions of stars and planets literally out there and the universe is getting bigger. We know from our fancy telescopes that just in the last two years, more than 20 planets have been identified outside our solar system that seem to be far enough away from their suns and dense enough that they might be able to support some form of life,” he said.
“So it makes it increasing less likely that we’re alone,” he added.
“Oh, you’re trying to give me a hint that there are aliens,” Mr Kimmel quipped in response.
“No, I’m trying to tell you that I don’t know,” Clinton replied. “But if we were visited some day, I wouldn’t be surprised. I just hope that it’s not like ‘Independence Day’, the movie that it’s, you know, a conflict,” he said....
