NO...How many people go missing? . They could have been eaten by Aliens for all we know.
We simply have no way to prove otherwise. They will continue to feed on us, while we feed on the animals who are none the wiser further down the
But...what if some of our species are aware of what is happening and are helping the Aliens, making it easier for them to eat humans so that they
themselves dont get eaten.
Some things to consider:
Some folks say aliens (IF they exist) would want to share their knowledge with us. Why? Do YOU want to share your knowledge with rabbits? Or monkeys,
or any other species? Other than a few species that humans keep as pets, the defining character of inter-species relationships is either predation
(eating one another) or indifference (cows and butterflies.) Why would extra-terestrial species be any different?
Based on the model of life here on Earth, if alien visitors took an interest in us, chances are it would be to eat us. But are they doing this?
Unlikely. There are a few things that would make a skeptic (or paranoid individual)suspicious, however. Like what?
Well, the earth's population increased by leaps and bounds over the last century. This means a larger "herd" to select from. Also, the larger the
herd, the less likely an individual will be missed. Not at all would this be evidence that something like this is happenning, just a something to
Travel technology has allowed people to move around the globe with relative ease, so people leaving and never coming back to their native community is
not as uncommon as it once was. In other words, people disappearing isn't out of the ordinary anymore.
But don't people remain connected by information technology like they never could before? This is true, and is a good counter to my argument.
Nevertheless, electronic information technology can be easily manipulated in ways that we're just beginning to understand, and would pose no serious
barrier to hungry aliens. (If they exist.)
Another thing....Obesity isn't just for Americans anymore. I was shocked to learn recently that, despite an ever growing population, there are more
OBESE people in the world than STARVING people!! Really! Of course, fattening up the animals is what any good farmer would do.
One notion I have isn't really what I'd call a major argument for this theory, but it gets me thinking. I find the rise in popularity of the
bodybuilding sport over the last 20 years interesting, and a bit disturbing. Nothing at all against bodybuilders, but it's an atheletic activity that
has the singular purpose of packing as much muscle as possible on a human being's physique. I guess what I find disturbing are the similarities
between the typical bodybuilding competition and the typical cattle show/competition at a state fair.
The bodybuilding contestants come out, wearing next to nothing, and flex and pump up their muscles to accentute their physical bulk for the judges,
hoping to score the most points and win the prize. They concentrate mostly on their large muscle groups (i.e. their "meatiest portions") as well.
All that's missing are the blue ribbons and the livestock auctions following the event. These folks would be considered the "choicest" of the
Ask yourself while watching this video - would this person be seen by aliens as an atheletic competitor? Or a prize "heifer"? (Or worse yet, an
ideal rump roast?) www.youtube.com...
No, bodybuilders aren't disappearing, so it isn't happening, but muscle building technology would be something that would benefit interplanetary
ranchers who come down now and then to "harvest" us. And It would be especially beneficial to them if their livestock took part in the process
willingly out of a sense of ego or pride.
The other side of all of this is: 200 to 200,000 light years is a LONG way to go for a hamburger.
