If you go looking for proof of ancient aliens you're gonna find it - on weird websites written by people in tinfoil hats, in their crazed
interpretation of a weird bird they found on a heiroglyphic rock and unsourced pictures taken directly out of context, or even just totally made up.
And everyone thinks they've found the "truth", that they're one in a thousand.
Gods come and go like bad fashion. Have you ever seen a god? People have always been just as corrupt and hungry for power as they are now, including
those who got to dictate history. How better to build an empire than with the blessing of the one true god, which conveniently enough happened to
their god, or our god. All the gods are stories men made up so that their children would sleep at night. Once upon a time, not too long ago, people
were afraid of being carried off in the night by creatures like demons, witches, werewolves, vampires. Now we don't believe in them anymore, so we
turn to aliens. When all the mysteries have been sucked from the world our minds wander in strange places. Given that we live in an age of science
where skepticism reigns and proof is demanded, of course we start interpreting history to include aliens.
What I'm saying is that if you look hard enough, you'll find aliens just about everywhere and conspiracies in just about everything. Lots of people
think that their respective government is in cahoots with extraterrestrial wise men. I suppose that's more comforting than the truth. It's good to
believe we've got help here in this world, be it from a god or aliens flying about in saucers and keeping a watchful eye over us all. Or perhaps the
gods are demons, and the aliens malicious - it's good to have something to blame and be able to say "it's not our fault". Either way, it all comes
down to an excuse for killing each other. The day people start taking responsibility for themselves, for the good and the bad, is the day this world
will change for the better.
And what is the Christian god, what is Yahweh, if not an alien? Some great omnipotent being with great powers far beyond that of humanity's,
descending from the sky; doesn't sound like he was born any place I've ever heard of. Now we've got this common mental image of a grey-skinned alien
with big black eyes. Once, perhaps, they would've been our gods - after all, they fit the description. History becomes legend, legend becomes myth.
People have never been the most reliable of narrators. Many things change in the telling, and become far greater in the story than they ever were in
reality. If you want people to venerate someone, why not add a little flair to the tale? And this, I think, is from where we get all these fantastical
tales. These stories prove nothing but the flawed nature of our race.
