I go with the weight of the evidence being they are here and have been here off and on for thousands of years.
As long as we’re in the realms of assumption here, let’s expand on that concept; in that period of them visiting, we have witnessed them countless
Maybe even interacted with them directly.
Perhaps even owe our existence to their technology.
Perhaps we built up religions and philosophies that were originally based on their presence, interaction and teachings. Those religions changed and
have now been usurped and transformed into forms of global control devised by the unscrupulous and power hungry to control the masses.
Yet, the perhaps inadvertent founders of these religions do nothing about the consequences of their actions.
And today, in the year 2010, as we accomplish our highest technological achievements, we are still fighting
over the Earth’s raw materials,
other people’s land, and in the name of conflicting creeds.
Yet, the perhaps inadvertent instigators of these divisions do nothing about the consequences of their actions.
With that assumption in place then one must conclude they are not a threat
Really? What does that make them then? Caring? Attentive?
If they have knowingly
allowed philosophies established on them to prosper and go on to divide us and drive us to kill each other, then how can
they not be deemed a threat?
This is what I mean about us expecting them to behave in a recognizable manner, and how dangerous an assumption that may be.
For all we know, our current situation could well be exactly
what they were expecting when they began visiting us all those millennia ago. We
may just be an interesting experiment.
And if it wasn’t
their intention, then why haven’t they stopped all the bloodshed?
Neglect that leads to death is murder by another name, isn’t it?
Just my opinion.
