This topic sparked my interest because I am one of those people you speak of.
I can't speak for everyone that feels this way, but I can say this: I do not necessarily feel afraid
of the things you are talking about. I am
not a believer, or a non-believer, of aliens. I guess trustnoone1987 somewhat explains how I feel by saying,
Others just don't care because they look at it like hey it doesn't effect me if their is intellegent life out here...
But the difference is that I do
understand that if these things are out there we could learn a lot - or suffer a lot, depending on wtf is out
there and what their intentions are... If there are benevolent creatures out there then it would be great that they come and share things with us. I
have no delusions of grandeur, I understand that my life is relatively worthless to intelligent beings that can travel through space. I am but one
human that knows nothing
compared to them - if they do exist.
On the 2012 subject: I do not know what will happen; I don't have an answer. I feel that if it were a true fact - that I would know for sure what day
the end of days would be - it would not make my life any better. I do not want to know when I am going to die - I don't want that stress and fear
added to my life. I don't mean that I am afraid of dying - but I am
somewhat afraid of watching the countdown and I believe that many people
feel the same way. Out of sight out of mind, right? So if I don't think
about it I can live my life as I normally would and enjoy my final
years/months/weeks or whatever it may be. I think that is why the "thought of thinking about it" (and I like your wording btw) is such a scary
Oh and to answer the question... I don't know what is wrong with me
, but I'm sure there are more than a few things
