London, Aug 2 (IANS) The “X-Files” writers Chris Carter and Frank Spotniz reveal that they do believe in aliens and said that the recent spate of UFO sightings were well timed to coincide with their latest film’s release. “We couldn’t have timed the film better. Thank you whoever is behind it. Thank the aliens,” Carter said.

Added Frank: “Maybe they’re already here and have been in contact with the government for decades. Aliens may well be here, we just don’t know it or recognise it.

“Scientists are now saying most of the universe is dark matter… we’re surrounded by mystery. I think our understanding of reality could change quite dramatically.”

The latest “X-Files” film has FBI agents Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) once again return to the big screen to investigate paranormal phenomena. Carter also said that he believes in alien abductions, thesun.co.uk reported.

He said: “I’ve heard too many stories from too many credible people to be a complete sceptic. Of course I believe! I’d love to meet an alien so I could probe her mind and she would probe mine.”
