What happened to the lost colony of Roanoke?
Back to question

Alien abduction is responsible for the Roanoke colonists' disappearence

. Mass alien abduction would explain why no bodies have ever been found. Additionally, it remains possible in this line of thinking that the hidden symbol found below the patch by the British Museum may indicate an alien landing site or crop circle phenomenon, rather than a formal British fortification.

The Argument

The lack of bodies or mass grave sites at any of the proposed locations of the colonists’ demise, whether it be Roanoke, Croatoan Island, or inland North Carolina, throws a significant wrench into all those theories. 115 people is not a small population for a colony. Also, if they intentionally left the island in a planned manner, it does not make sense to leave such a terrible clue like “Croatoan” written on a tree, behind. A note, or a map would have been substantially more helpful. Some posit this implies that the colonists fled the island quickly, and not of their own volition. Mass alien abduction would explain why no bodies have ever been found.[1] Additionally, it remains possible in this line of thinking that the hidden symbol found below the patch by the British Museum may indicate an alien landing site or crop circle phenomenon, rather than a formal British fortification.[2] Naturally, if this were true, it would make sense as to why John White and the colonists would keep such a thing hidden.

Counter arguments

This theory is fundamentally impossible, as aliens don’t exist. Therefore, no abduction could take place. Yet, for the sake of argument, if aliens were to exist, it lacks sense for 115 people to be abducted, it seems quite a massive and inconvenient population. Also, why the secrecy on the part of John White and the colonist if, in fact, the patch covered an alien related site. Presumably, if there was something that alarming to be found, they would want to share that information with their government and the world.[3]
