Humans have come in different shapes,sizes,color,orientation,etc. but the one thing we all have in commen is

1.)we are violent...get over it.

2.)we are selfish...get over it

3.)we are vain...get over it

4.) we are possessive and terratorial...get over it

if you guys would accept this....the way you view things would change.



I DONT disagree with this at all. Your on the money! Is a hard hitting fact that cant be sugar coated.

Only thing i'll add to that is, we have the choice.

Choice's reflected on all of those is based on a perspective. What you describe is generic patterns of survival. I believe in this day & age with the intelligence we now posses, we should be able to distinguish the difference. Only problem is, given today's increasing appetite dog eat dog setting, the world is being forced into those headings alot more frequently.

Im hopeful we will make it into space in a star trek type fashion, cause if your purely looking at the past exclusively, then if i were aliens, i'd be taking pot shots at our advancements.



While its true we do have a choice...what usually stimulates that choice that we make? do you do everything logically..what i mean to say is...do you do everything by logic instead of EMOTIONS.

Like i said before humanity has a 'risk/reward' mentality.....meaning if the reward is good enough we will do what ever it takes to get it....even if we know logically it could hurt someone else.

if you combine that with 'herd mentality' you have genocides.Its the US vs them syndrome....you will likely get this when we meet aliens...all humanity uniting because we have a commen enemy:aliens.

It does not matter how intelligent we like to think we are....the universe has one rule:the strong survive.

Its always been this way man...its always been dog eat dog. every part of our culture(and has been for some time) is dog eat dog.Look at the casual competetion that goes on through the world.

Janice has to be prettier then cherice.

Mark has to be stronger and faster then dawkins.

even our video games...modern warfare,etc.

Its always been survival of the fittist.....and i dont see that ending just because we go out in space.

Following this method you are probably afraid all of the time. Life is a risk.

It's hard to say what we're dealing with, maybe there isn't any aliens. A certain caution is of course smart move.

Look buddy this is exactly my point , we don't know if what we know is real , we dont know where "here" really is , but instead of going cryptic and not really saying anything at all why not try and navigate our way to the truth.
I don't disagree with your views directly friend and Im not trying to debunk you .
But you really don't have any more knowledge than the rest of us , I will admit you are on a good track because we should question everything and the world as we know it really might not be what we "know" , but If you like many of us wish to find out the "truth" then we have to get all the fact together and start joining the dots. We need to work to next level and i'm sorry to say it but your comments however well intentioned really don't help . you dont say anything you just speculate as to what you think you know . You don't have any evidence because there isn't any , we haven't found it yet . So instead of giving us the yoda impression why dont ya work with us and then maybe one day we can all enjoy the infinite wisdom of life.

Without the comprehension of existence and what it really is there is not enough collaboration for such advanced feats.

Without Love there is no comprehension.

Fear separates, a true problem for most of Humanity.


I do not need to be better than anyone. I do not have to survive over someone else.

It makes me happy to see someone else happy.

You hold all truths, all that is outside of you is within you.

Sit, in silence, listen to that small voice that comes from the heart. That voice that most neglect for their duration of their "busy" lives.

Yeah, because people are on the lower emotional levels. It's the most possible primitive level. it's 2010, so we could evolve a bit and be something a bit more than animals trying to survive.

This ain't the dark ages anymore.

i hope your not being sexist...the male gamete is male sperm...do you wanna get rid of us males?? are you a femenazi?


In response to your questions I am actually male. My religion has been arrived that by the scientific method and is widely respected. You might be new to it and your "shock of the new" attitude is understandable. However, given time to digest the facts and the vaste amount of data, you too might become a convert to my religion. One only has to realise what the "sperms" are doing. Not all sperms are male. Only 50% are carrier of the "male gamete". "Male Gamete" is not a sperm. It is a micro component in the nucleus of every cell in a mans body. It is not a chromosome. The majority of sperms are thus feminine. To quote a genetics expert "Life is first and foremost feminine". The immune system is constantly trying to kill "male gamete". Masculinity is a product of the cancer inducing effect of the "male gamete" carried in every cell of a mans body. Mutating him into the masculine form. Why are we never shown illustrations of the "male gamete" ? Probably because it is a nanotechnology robot just as I speculate. It causes cancer. Is that something healthy ? It incapacitates the codons of the DNA of the chromosomes. It does this by removing the crystals of mono-atomic gold or rodium found at the ends of the DNA strands. Like removing the batteries that power the system. Thus from conception men are suffering mental retardation. Woman getting "male gamete" by sexual contagion then develop mental retardation too. Is this healthy. Which does raise the question. Is "male gamete" an alien manufactured nanotechnology weapon system ? Ultimately masculinity is not what God intended. Nature is first and foremost feminine. This is science. Not politics. Certain woman thinking that I am supporting their political liberation movement are failing to understand my science. Woman are "male gamete" infected too. True femininity is rare. Virgins are few. Virgins do not exist so that men can get a really big orgasm. Virgins are sacred. Virgins are the only part of our species that are unaffected by the alien weapon system enslaving our planet. Virgins should thus recieve our protection and repect. I as a man practice celibacy in accordance with the PRAECEPTAE CAELENIUM(tm) which I mentioned in reference above on page sixteen of this thread.

So you want me to worship females? Im sorry but i like my bulging muscles and my ruggedly handsome face....i dont want to look like a girl or act like a girl. If i wanted to do that i guess i would be labled 'transgendered'.

I dont know why you hate the masculine form.....physically it is superior to the female form...with speed,strength,and lung capacity.

I dont understand how the human race could go on without male sperm or gamete.Would the baby(even if possible) be all female.....god a all female world...a lesbians dream. and even if possiblewould the baby not have birth defects? they tried doing that with rats and only one survived and after hundreds of embryos failed. and it went on to have a baby with a MALE.

sorry bud im not gonna convert to it....not my thing...hatin on my fellow males and my handsome and sexy MASCULINE body.

Thats what they said in the 1700s lol.Yes we are a BIT more then animals trying to survive...but we are still animals and mostly ruled by emotions and instincts.

If you look around,you will understand why i say what i say.

You assume intelligence=morals,ethics,empathy,etc.

This belief is false.... some of the most manipulative and smartest people alive are serial killers.

Imagine a species with no emapthy,morals,ethics,or anything like that.

I hear what your saying. I certainly hope your wrong, & I as a idealistic humanity concept patriot hope the better half of humanity will stay the course, however it kills me as much as i hate to admit it, a good potion of it will prob swing that way regardless.

Some are, some aren't. Those impulses can be defeated. We can evolve if we so choose. Right now, some people are sinking, some people are rising. The more people try to ignore those people who bring the positive message, the deeper the they sink.

It's all about choices. And some other things.

So buddy, it appears that you're a homosexual in the making. Typical of the symptoms caused by the alien manufactured nanotechnology weapon "male gamete" under investigation. You are insane ! The aliens have won the war. You are their soldier. You are as good as one of them. Start thinking more straightly. Your thoughts are coming straight out of the pit of Hell. Heaven has always been a lesbians angellic paradise. Men have always been the demonic nightmare of Hell. This world continues to be the middle ground [pergatory]. The battle of armageddon continues because you want to fight the war on the demonic alien side. Are the aliens masculine ? Perhaps the aliens a 100% feminine ? How would you know the answer ? As a man your ability to think straightly is continually being sabotaged by the presence of "male gamete" in your system. I have science to back me up on these points. However, you only have your political pride as a masculine entity to support you. So long as the world is ruled over by men then this planet and the human species is on a collision course with armageddon destruction. I suggest that you think before you completely reject my feminist attitude. Thinking is difficult for the masculine to accomplish, but try it for size buddy. Basically the masculine are their own worst adversary in that they are all muscle and literally no brain. That is a fact of science. Proven in the laboratory.

IMO The human race has been through so much maybe not our generation but in general humans have taken on a lot. If aliens come down and are hostile we might not be ready but some have the will to survive we will always be here until we destruct ourselves. We are our worst enemy. I really want to believe there is something more then just us, that our universe is so voluminous and there is life beyond what we know here on earth. The sad thing is that some humans are really intelligent but humans are so wrapped up in new technology and what is entertaining at the time if we all worked together maybe we could find out what is really out there. I am one of those people who care about the technology that will help us....

Well im not gonna HOPE for it....because everyone has a chance to be proven wrong...even me.

i just try to think of this logically as possible and to take the 'hippie' beamers off.....you gotta look at it subjective....

Well, maybe we all need to find a little bit of "hippie" in ourselves.


Depends what that means. It's pretty obvious that the current system feeds on greed and is alone guilty of our current situation. We have to find new values, something else than hogging all to ourselves. Maybe we need to connect more, that way we might found out that the person next to us isn't necessarily our enemy. Unity is power.

There's some hippie for you.

when i mean hippie...i mean those that are blinded by PEACE. the pacifists...those that cant understand that sometimes violence is needed that sometimes people need to suffer for the greater good of all.

The hippies im talking about are those on this thread who cant even THINK of the possiblity that the aliens they so hope will save them...might actually be bad.alot of people on this board think of aliens as almost a imaginary friend...they want aliens to be peaceful SO bad...that they are blinded by it.

The values we have are the values that are natural for us, trying to impose the wet dreams of some hippies and treehuggers wont work, is good to be intelligent but sometimes is a problem when people start having weird ideas and think that to be nice we must reject our nature.

I wont say that we are greed, but we are a territorial species and that gets translated to our homes and possesions, is wrong? no, we are a social and cooperative species too so there is people who share, that work because is what our species is.

Is not so black and white, there are people more balanced, there are people who prefer possesions, there are people who like to share, why everybody must be the same?

If you see, there are peaceful people, there are more violent people, there are people who is just normal, peaceful is everything is fine, violent is they must.

Society to work need all kind of people because everyone have a role in it, do the all peaceful people go off-planet to defend the species or conquest a planet we need? do all the warlike people want to use their times building farms? growing animals? plants?

Try to find new values like those of no money, no possesions, everybody sharing, helping doesnt make sense, try to make everybody behave the same and it doesnt make sense.

Yes, the evil pacifists, how dare they!


As i have stated many times earlier, assuming that the aliens are some kind of violent moronic apes like ourselves is simply projecting our own behavioral patterns to other (hypothetical) species.

We are distracted from our true nature, blinded by lower, insignificant BS. Divide and conquer. People have a lot of potential.

We are not violent moronic apes, we are violent intelligent and smart apes


Our behaviour is not exclusive, the most intelligent species on earth are predators like us with one exception, elephants, and everybody act pretty much the same, the difference is that we have tumbs and the dolphins not for example.

If we use all earth as an example of life, not only humans, them the probability will be very high for intelligent predators in all the universe and very low for intelligent intergalactic cows and if they are like cows them they wont come because a lot of us love barbecue.

and what is our 'true nature'? do the chimpanzees not gather in groups and wage 'war' against other groups??

do they not eat the bodies of there dead foes......they are our closest relative....we see so much of our own behavior in them...why do you think we study them so much?

One only has to look at chimps to understand how our nature is...granted they have sex and share partners(not m thang yo).

are you not self-projecting as well?? when you think of the reasons why aliens HAVE to be peaceful...what do come up with?
