April 26--And they call it the History Channel.

The Ancient Aliens series has produced programs that can be hilariously funny. One of the key contributors is a guy with spiked hair and a degree in sports information who continues to front the idea that aliens are watching us, feeding us information, visions and travel to earth in some sort of galactic shuttle.

Scientific fact isn't nearly as interesting as closing the conversation with a question mark.

"Do stories of the ancient past hold evidence of alien overseers?"

"Is it possible that genius is more than just the produce of good genetics?"

"Could (Egyptian) mummification have been an attempt to recreate suspended animation often connected to extraterrestrial space travel? Or could the intent have been to preserve the body for future DNA removal?"

"Stories have been told of the dead rising from their graves, people on the brink of death mingling with deceased relatives in a netherworld. Are these simply legends or could some of the stories actually be true?

No wonder people are so interested in zombies. They're highly entertaining.

Pushing a possibility that aliens communicated with Albert Einstein, Galileo, Archimedes or Aristotle has to be laughable or it would be incredibly sad.

The alien theorists can't figure out how else Einstein could have written the base line of quantum physics in four months and as an addendum included the theory of relativity -- E=mc2.

By the way Archimedes invented a death ray. Images of alien beings and secret codes have been discovered in the paintings of Leonardo da Vinci. Aliens explained to Aristotle that the velocity of a falling object depended on its mass.

For too many viewers it's hard to accept the fact that human beings could make discoveries that would change the future. Despite the urban myth that we use only 10 percent of our brain, the world's greatest on-board computer can accomplish remarkable things.

Mere mortal Jonas Salk developed the polio vaccine and saved the lives of millions around the world.

Marie Curie earned the 1903 Nobel Prize for physics having discovered radium and polonium.

Nikola Tesla, seldom recognized, in 1888 patented the alternating current induction motor; AC governs the electrical supply system we use today.

Nicolas Copernicus, a Renaissance mathematician and astronomer developed the model of the universe that placed the sun, not the earth at its center.

Rosalind Franklin spent years encoding and studying the structure of DNA using x-rays. With her data evidence James Watson, Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins discovered the DNA double helix.

While his colleagues at Texas Instruments took vacation time, electrical engineer Jack Kilby stayed behind and invented the integrated circuit, the microchip, part of nearly every product we use.

Why else would tens of thousands of people internationally take part in the March for Science last Saturday? Science, something alien's didn't teach us, matters.

If intergalactic aliens exist, surely they're advanced enough to allow us to work at our own pace. Let the children learn.
