Fox Mulder himself has offered up a rather unconventional explanation for why aliens might visit the Earth.
It's hard to believe that it has been 30 years this month since The X-Files first debuted on TV.

The show proved an enormous hit, with millions tuning in each week to find out what supernatural horrors, alien threats or criminal nutcases Fox Mulder and Dana Scully would be investigating next.

Recently, actor David Duchovny - who played Mulder - sat down for an interview with Natalie Morales during which he offered up his own theory on why aliens might be visiting Earth.

Suffice to say, his idea is even more 'out there' than the plot of an episode from the show.

The premise centers around something known as the 'Ship of Fools'.
"Before they saw mental illness as something to care for or to mitigate in some humanitarian way, they would lock people up, as in prison or there is something they would do," he said.

"They put them on a ship and they just send them out into the ocean. So, this is a 'Ship of Fools.' That's what it was called."

"My theory about alien visitation is that they put all their dentists and perverts on a spaceship, and they're like, 'We hate our dentists and the people who stick their fingers up our a**es.'"

"So, now, they're circling and they pick us up, and they drill our teeth and probe our a**es."

@nataliemoralesloves As an interviewer I ask the things I think we all really want to know. Our next show is Sept 12 @Lodge Room and proceeds are going to Maui Aid- come join the night crew! #davidduchovny #nataliemoralesandthenightcrew #alien #thexfiles #believe ♬ original sound - Natalie Morales

How long do you think it will be before some earthling identifies as Alien?  And since these Aliens barged in on us without the proper papers, doesn't that make them illegal Aliens?  We need to put them on trial at The Hague!

There are people that claim they are alien-human hybrids. Might as well, there are boys that think they're girls.

It has usually been mentioned in places throughout the years that David and Gillian's personal beliefs are in stark contrast to their X-Files counterparts. I think I first read that in TV Guide in the mid-'90s but it's been mentioned elsewhere. David Duchovny is a sceptic. Which I think is awesome.   As far as the show, it's one of the greatest things to ever make it to television. Series 1 through 4 are remarkable. Although it does slowly fall apart later on. Series six was a total tonal shift when the show moved to California. Although six wasn't nearly as bad as later episodes.
