a reply to: The GUT
hey gut long time how ya been.
ya know what amazes me, is how naive and as you suggested gullible some are with preconceived notions of how benevolent ET's are, and think that
when and if they show up, that they are gonna want to sit around the fire, hold hands with us and sing kumbagrey may lord with us.
for example these questions.
6. Are you kind, gentle, peaceful, and non-aggressive-not just sometimes, but almost always?
7. Are you hurt, saddened, and confused by all the human evil and cruelty in the world?
8. Do you feel that money, possessions, and a successful career are not really that important?
9. Do you sometimes feel more comfortable with plants and animals than with people?
10. Are you generally sensitive, considerate, generous, and concerned about others around you?
there are a few others but these will do for now.
fact is there is no real held in hand evidence that ET's are or feel any of the above. chance are just as likely or higher that they are even more
evil, mean, wicked, and nasty than we are. for all we know ET's are unkind, ungentle, unpeaceful, aggressive, not just sometimes but all of the time.
they could delight, be overjoyed, and understand completely all the human evil and cruelty in the world and maybe even influence it for their own
ET's could covet things of value, and desire to possess even more than they have, and could see a successful career as a starship commander as one of
the most powerful positions in their culture, and to want to be a very important individual in said culture.
ET's could be allergic to plants and animals, or even consume them more than we do. for that matter they could see all plants as a resource that is
needed to drive their needs, and they could see us as well all animals a food source, and there really is a booked called how to serve man in the
galley of all ET's spacecraft.
chances are just as high the ET's are unsensitive, inconsiderate, ungenerous,unconcerned of their own kind around them as we are ours. for that matter
they may be even further evolved enough not to be to worry about what others think of their own thoughts and beliefs, to not try to make everyone
conform. besides whats wrong with being self centered.
just because ET's maybe older, more technologically advanced, doesn't mean that they have the same thought process or morals as humans.
for that matter ET's that visit us, may have been the way people of the i'm gonna say the Sagan crowd hope and expect, until another race ET's came
and visited their world and busted their bubble. now they know better and don't play.
