Seriously it's only Zorgon's threads that make me crawl back to ATS and post things.
I would have to train the following ideas about what is discussed in this thread:
1) Everything was a hoax.
a) It was a modern hoax.
b) It was an old hoax dating back to the era it allegedly happened.
2) It was real. There were aliens involved.
3) It was real, there were no aliens but demonic entities playing a show.
Answering my own set of questions:
1) We don;t care if it was, case dismissed.
b) Who would put up such a hoax? From where would they get the information about air fleets, opposing factions and aerial battles with disintegrating
debris as to leave no technological evidence as to not breach some type of a Prime directive.
2) Why would opposing teams of aliens fight it out so close to human habitats, that were of course major trade routes and cultural centers, so that
this event would get as much public exposure as possible? What would be the benefit of displaying such a show to an non technologically advanced
civilization as a witness? Wouldn't the mere possibilities of such events occurring with Mankind as a witness also a severe breach of the law of a
supposed Prime Directive, therefore should't any benevolent entities evolved had already solved the problem of hostile aliens be coming too close to
comfort with human civilization? Therefore very few or none at all would be the evidence of aliens and their politics in general for humanity to
3) Why would demonic entities, reveal themselves hoaxing themselves as alien species, urging humans to think about spectacular new sciences,
technological wonders and alternative means of warfare at the given era?
The only real questions that has a merit and should be considered is questions identified as 1b and question 3.
Because it would make much more sense and whether we like it or not, it would have much more practical connections with our current reality if
specifically those two questions were answered.
The possible answer in question 3 would be that the foul entities would have to make such occasional shows as to usher Mankind in to the perils of
technological evolution. We can witness today widespread destruction of the environment, hunger and general societal imbalance because we have ushered
in a technological era without forward thinking, planing and the necessary levels of the much needed wisdom.
The possible answer of the question 1b would be that some elect few, would devise a scheme of how to usher Mankind in to the perils of the
technological evolution that would lead to the mess we have today. This type of answer in its turn generates two more significant questions.
A) How the elect few would know where they would be ushering mankind with their tricks?
B) From where did they get their ideas of what and how to show it to Mankind?
Answers A and B to be answered demand that a power greater than the collective powers of the elect few gave them the idea of what to do and how to do
Most possible identity of such a power with such capacity to entertain such machinations would be a foul one.
So there you have it...
No aliens but something else! Or simply a modern hoax!
Props to Zorgon for the thread!
