I feel It's time I take a critical look at greys and reptilians. For a while now I've been trying to bite the bullet and accept that there's too
many witnesses to say they can't exist. But I simply have to give my critical opposition to the public for them to eat away at so that people can
understand why I feel this way.
First up, my personal favorite: Reptilians.
Now I'm the first to love them because I also live dinosaurs and they kind of look like them, but lets get down to scientific plausibility. Today on
Earth, the smartest reptile, or more precise, the smartest descendant of reptiles, is the crow. This little bugger, with a tiny brain the size of the
diameter of a quarter or so, is quite amazing. It can make spears, count, imagine what it's prey is looking at (something only we humans are known to
poses), and do simple math. If you've noticed like me going down the high way, they often hunt in 2 pairs. I find it amazing that they know how to
use a stick to pluck out bugs from a tree. They can also use metal to be bent and use as a hook. So what am I getting at with this? Well I'm getting
at the fact that they can do all this with that tiny brain. So if they can do all that with their brain, why, may I ask, does a reptilian have to be
so big and have such a human-like brain? Now many of you may claim "because it has to have it to be as smart as us". Not true. A big brain is mainly
used for facial recognition, as I have learned. I could be wrong, but this is what I was taught and what I feel is right (seeing as we have the most
advanced brain and face in the world). But that's the bullet in the reptilian theory. How can you have complex facial movements and actions with
scales and skin like a lizard? Not only can the skin not stretch too well, but it makes it impossible to make anything more complex then happy
face/frown face. You know who does have scales on their face that we know of? Harliquin Icthyosis victims. Yea, look how easy it is to move their
faces. Now we most all remember that it would be perfectly possible that they could use some kind of oil to allow more movements. But that defeats the
very purpose of scales. Scales are, in fact, a primitive form of skin to keep water and liquids in. There's a reason why amphibians evolved it first.
There's also a reason why some creatures even evolved it to have canals so water goes straight to the mouth. If you had scales that secrete oils,
then there would be no purpose to scales, because why would you want to hold in liquids if your just putting them out again. That's why feathers
evolved. That's why our skin is the way it is. So that you could have something that keeps the liquids and oils in, but have it open enough to keep
pouring out oils. Scales make this impossible, meaning that you wouldn't be able to make complex facial movements. And if you can't have that, why
would you need a big brain? And if you don't need a big brain, why walk upright at all? That's my next point. Walking upright is a trait which only
two species I can think of have evolved: penguins and man. Penguins have it to have less surface on the ice. mankind has it for it's top-heavy brain.
But if you don't have a big brain, why walk upright at all? Hell, I can understand walking on two legs. Even a dinosaur with a brain no smarter than
the basic necessity to live could walk on two legs. But to think an intelligent lizard has to look like a human is funny.
Now we can go to tails. Why would you need a tail? Why would you have one? Tails are for creatures that have horizontal postures. Tails are for
balancing. And why would you have that anyway? Don't give me the evolution left-over BS. We have a lot left over, be we don't have things like
hand-feet left over. Know why? because it's an obstruction and energy-consumer. If your case for walking upright is somehow for energy saving, then
you have to abandon tails for you reptilians, because that's an energy sucker right there for walking upright.
And the ability to change your appearance? I'm sorry, but why would this be needed for a creature that walks upright? Upright posture, and the human
form in general, is for hunting. Built for speed, resilience, and tactician. Why would you need to change your appearance. OK, you can say it would
help in hunting, but if your a hunter, it is far better to evolve faster legs, or better eyes, or stronger muscles, than to change your entire skin
and it's format. Not only that, but it's even better and easier to change your skin's color and natural camouflage, then to make it completely
environment-sensitive. So far the only creature on Earth which can quickly change it's skin color is the cuttle fish and other species like it, and I
believe that's something related to water. Land creatures simply can't do it. A lizard that can change it's color, even though that trait's been
there for millions of years, still can't do it instantly. Take a cuttle fish out of the water, and it's the same thing.
Now lets go onto grays. Now I for one admit there's some interesting plausibility to them. A lot more than reptilians. They still have some things
that make no sense however. For one, their very skin color shoots them out for being what they look like. Grey, the color, is seen only in a few kinds
of species. Mainly ones that live in the water, live in the dark, or live in mud. I'm going for dark based on their eyes. The reason is they seem
built for the dark, and if there's any validity to them, it seems plausible then why most abduction happen at night. That sized cornea would be fried
in the day. So lets throw out mud and water. Now onto dark. WHY would you walk bipedal in the dark? That's like a suicidal evolutionary path. The
dark is very hard to navigate, and even if you evolved those great big eyes fro seeing in it, chances are your still going to miss a lot. And their
lack of nose or any real ears leads me to believe that they probably are very dependent on those eyes. But now here's the thing. Why would you have
such big eyes. That's pretty dangerous. Fall and your liable to lose one, or both. Their smooth skin indicated they have a pretty smooth environment,
though. Rough skin is needed for rough environments. Smooth skin for easy. But wait a tic. If your living in the dark, how are you going to live in a
smooth environment? You either live in caves, or somewhere else at night, And either or, that's freaking cold. For now, I'll leave the eyes to the
side, lets go into heat. Why don't you have any fur in that cold? Now of course, maybe their night is as warm as day and their day scorching. But
then I beg to question why would you evolve bipedal or even upright posture? That kind of environment needs a save 3 or 4 leg support system so you
can quickly outrun dangers. And You need a small brain, because a big head is liable to make you fall down. You can, of course, have a crow-like
brain. But then why do we humans picture them with big heads or something? Then there's the question with facial expressions. The potential is there,
because they have smooth skin. But if we're talking darkness, there's no way you can see the face? Unless you have some way to do it by other means.
Now there are dozens and dozens of alternatives to this, such as chemical signatures, electric sensations, or even chirps and clicks. All, however,
don't need big brains. And if you don;t have a big brain, you don't need to walk upright. Of course, then maybe the place has higher gravity? That
would explain their short height. But then why would you bother to evolve bipedalism? You could have a short body frame on the ground with a good
I could go on, and I will on request, but I want to get to the "organic slaves" element. OK, first of all, why? Why would you engineer the imperfect
human shape to a short species for slavery? You could just as easily make robots. Or, as some have told me, you NEED to have living worshipers, why
not robots with an organic brain? That's just as good. I'm sorry, but the whole slave excuse is dumb. A machine is better in all cases.......
