I can definitely handle disclosure.
I'll be overjoyed. Happy. Thrilled. Excited. And then I'll try to talk to the aliens, realize i can't because they communicate telepathically. So,
back to the drawing board, as GuiltyByDesign said, I'll try to revv up my telepathic/spiritual awakening... and who knows?
But then, I was realizing this just now, it's NOT ABOUT ME.
It's not about you either, CHEMLEY.
It's not about all of us on ATS, because as I have posted earlier, the people on ATS HAVE been exposed, in one way or another, to the truth, and
hence, it's not right to use us as benchmarks because we have already been talking about aliens and accepted them as FACT that if aliens were to
appear the next day it would NOT freak our freaks.
But there are many who do not.
Flat-Earthers, who think aliens are fiction and need ABSOLUTE proof.
Pastors who have their own ideas of how God works.
NOT ALL pastors, or Christians, but some. Just as how some fundamentalists bring bad name to your religion.
Then there are the people who do not know what to think. Scared and shaken up, they will be easily influenced by people with doomsday messages - and
there ARE people out there who are like that - when the aliens probably aren't malevolent, because let's face it, if they have the ability to travel
across galaxies, they have the ability to wipe out many species in one go... and they haven't done that yet.
(only crash into Russian forests and Nevadan deserts...)
So WE cannot be used as gauges.
There are people who write, "I WILL BE HAPPY! THRILLED! I'LL CALL MY FRIENDS!"
But we are NOT the majority. We are in fact in such a minority we are insubstantial in the world. And even on ATS, NOT EVERYONE is here about the
aliens issue. Some people are here because they want to speak up about Obama "taking away their guns", or about monsters and presidential
conspiracies. Some people are on here JUST for the sake of trying to fight us to disprove the existence of aliens.
You have to factor in the people who already can't deal with THEIR OWN SPECIES. Discrimination, crime, suicide (cannot deal with THEMSELVES), nuclear
fights, sanctions, war, arrests left and right...
I really don't think the one or two or five people who have expressed joy at being able to handle alien revelation can be representative of everyone
in the world.
Granted, Hollywood has been doing its job to "numb" the impact of alien revelation, but it's still worrying how far humanity can descend. Let's
face it, theres a LOT more descension that can occur.
Besides, even if aliens were to reveal themselves, who knows if we can communicate with them? (see start of this post)
