Nothing went wrong because we are still advancing and haven't got to the stage of greatness yet.

Imagine what an unacquainted aborigine tribe would do today if they were to meet westerners for the
first time. Today's technology is so much more advanced and sublime than the 1970s technology shown in the video. The unconversant aborigines would certainly think we were gods; even though that may be what they already thought of of the westerners in the video.
While I don't agree that aboriginal peoples regarded whites as gods - perhaps more often as ghosts or "people from heaven" (aliens), I do think that some Western people would like to believe that canard, and that's why they feel they must go to uncontacted tribes, so that they can misinterpret their distressed amazement as "worship".edit on 23-6-2011 by halfoldman because: (no reason given)
