Why they take sperm and ovum when they could get it in other ways I can't really say
Personally, I can't accept that unless there is physical and empirical evidence, especially when it makes absolutely no logical sense. Human
testimony is the least credible form of evidence. For example of this, look to religion. There are literally hundreds of different religions known to
mankind throughout history. Each boasts their own visions, prophets, revelations, miracles, and testimonies that prove their validity over the others.
No one religion has a unique monopoly on these phenomena, and often they are wildly different and non-congruent. The UFO phenomena is really no
different in this regard and it's no surprise that many make the connection between UFOs and spirituality.
As far as humans coming from the animal kingdom, sure we may have it in us but I prefer not to think of us as animals though many live like
animals and act like animals.
This has nothing to do with human behavior. So long as humans remain motile and ingest the living cells of other organisms (be they plant or other
animal) to survive - we will always be animals. Further, even if we evolve into something else, we will always be primates. Just as we are still
Chordates and we are still Eukaryotes. Just as Birds are still Dinosaurs.
The human race is still in the process of becoming human IMO once we drop all the war-mongering and barbaric acts maybe we can get somewhere
spiritually and evolve to a much higher state of consciousness.
Spirituality has minimal benefits at best. The vast majority of the progress humanity has made, even to the point we're at now where we're on the
doorstep of even directing human evolution in a few generation's time through genetic modification has been brought about by growing intellectually
through science and reason.
Indeed, in all the generations in which humanity has been dominated by Religion and spirituality we've often found ourselves not enlightened in
better unification with the world and each other - but the victims of bigotry, violence, and war. Very few religions espouse pacifist and benign, such
as Buddhism, and despite their spiritual enlightenment they have done very little to advance mankind in any fashion.
Spirituality has little to do with evolution either, nor will a heightened sense of it transform us into anything other than what we already are,
So I fail to see where spirituality is any sort of a incentive humanity should desperately be working towards. Especially when it so often brings
coupled with it the dangers of ignorance and superstition.
