Civilization would rationalize the disclosure of Aliens.
Religion and it's various multitude of followers have for eons rationalized and fit / molded religion to fit their various needs. So too would modern
day religious factions shape and adjust their faith into something that accepts Alien life into their accepted normalcy.
Did the Earth go mad when it was proven it was not flat?
Did the people of this plant shake to the very core of their beings when we left our sphere for outer space?
Every day, we accomplish things that truly tear away at the blindfold that religion covers us with.
It's paranoia that denies us the courage to step out of the primordial darkness, into the illumination prepared for us by outer spheres of
If we're unable to step out there by ourselves, then truly we do not deserve to be there.
I would look directly at the people in this thread, who pull us back into the shadowy recesses of ignorance, as the main culprits of our hesitation to
evolve. In your honest and earnest attempts at saving humanity from itself, you're preventing us from moving forward.
We all know that it hurts to grow. The phrase "growing pains" has never held so much truth as in this instance.
Pain is a part of life, just as much as pleasure is. If you're afraid of the pain that comes along with disclosure, then you're dooming us to untold
generations of people left unable to quantify and come to personal disclosure with their own experiences in this matter.
You would rather keep us bent, folded into the box that is your own ideals, until we either die or the box breaks?
I would argue that your ideals regarding the necessity for preventing disclosure are just as painful, if not more painful, than the revelation that we
are not and have never been alone.
