I'll give it a shot. I love a challenge. I won't bother calling you ignorant, because you're not ignorant, you're consciously choosing to behave this
way. And that's okay. But, first of all, we're both human, right? The earth is in rapid decline, and I can tell by your cynicism that you're not
untouched by this. Therefore, I assume it's safe to say we're both on the same team here. But just because we believe in something you don't doesn't
make us responsible for the state of the world, does it? Jesus man, that's pretty bold of you to suggest. Belief in aliens and a sky-daddy brought us
here? Sh*t, religion certainly contributed a hell of a lot, but I struggle to see how peaceful spirituality (NOT RELIGION) and a belief in aliens
brought us here.
Again, I'm not gonna call you ignorant, but that's a strange thing to suggest. "Newborn infants don't make up stories", but we do, so therefore we
deserve what comes our way? Whatever happened to you that turned you so sour, I'm sorry, man. I really am. I can feel the desperation in your words.
You're not happy about this sh*t. Good. You shouldn't be. No one should be. But you're dealing with this all wrong. We're not your enemy.
take this sh*t out on us just because we're looking for answers where you're not. Note: I said answers, not intervention. I would appreciate
intervention, but if it were gonna happen, I think it would've happened by now. But I'm still hoping.
That doesn't mean I'm not trying
to do something about it myself, but as I said, what the f*ck are we supposed to do about it? You're an
alien-hating atheist. I'm an ET-loving agnostic. We both
have our backs against the wall with an impossible enemy to face. I've got a bong and
some kitchen knives, they have Harrier Jets and pepper spray. I don't know what you've got up your sleeve, but it can't be any more effective than
what I have. And when you (and other people like you) see that, maybe we can stop bickering amongst each other and work together one day. See, that's
the difference between us believers (not all of us, admittedly) and you non-believers, is that we don't have
anything to prove. I don't care if
you don't believe me. You, for some bizarre reason, want to see us all gone. I want to help you
fix this place so we both can be happy, and you
can continue trying to tell the world aliens don't exist, and I can continue not giving a f*ck, all in peace. Almost none of my friends share my
opinions in real life. I don't bloody hate them for it, do I? But I bet you don't have a single friend who believes in aliens. Alien-believers are
people too, man.
I don't want this sh*t to happen any more than you do. And I'm not asking aliens to help us. I'm not asking god to help us. And I'm not blaming either
of these parties, who you swear diligently don't exist. You have about as much authority to say that as anyone who says they do
your proof they don't? Have you searched under every rock on every planet in every galaxy in the universe? Has anyone else? But I digress, this is
turning into a "you can't prove what I can't prove" scenario. I simply wanted to voice my questions as to why, if these beings exist, they're letting
a small handful of people ruin an entire planet of loving, highly spiritual sentient beings. Seems pretty ridiculous and unfair to me. But I didn't
expect an answer. If they were going to blow their cover just to answer my angry letter, I think they'd have popped up by now for more important
reasons. But you took it upon yourself to answer on their behalf, and here we are in a strange argument where neither of us are "right" or "wrong".
You don't deserve this, brother. I don't deserve this. MrUncreated doesn't deserve this, regardless of your opinion on his beliefs. Our families and
friends don't deserve this. And if you weren't so hell-bent on attacking your fellow man, for some silly reason, then maybe you'd find time to agree
But you read my little rant, probably not even past the first few lines judging by your response, and then launched an attack on me (and people like
me) who are inclined to believe that this gigantic, infinite, incredibly complex universe can't really exist JUST for earth. What a waste of space.
Nature doesn't work like that. Now, maybe we're the most advanced species in the universe, I dread that thought, but it's entirely possible. But we
are definitely not the only species in the universe. You've got to be pretty naive to say that with any amount of certainty. That's like saying that,
because we haven't uncovered the entire floor of our ocean, new species of sea life couldn't possibly
exist. Well, at least until we discover
them, right? Then they can exist. Great logic. That's gonna lead to exponential progress of humanity.
How about, instead of spending your time telling us to "grow up", whatever the f*ck that means, you spent your time trying to do your part to make the
world a better place. You don't have to start a soup kitchen or initiate a revolution or kill all stupid people. It's very simple to do, really. All
you have to do is not be an asshole. That's more difficult for some people than others, but at the end of the day, it's not that hard.
I'm not calling you an asshole, per say, you're a fellow human being who seems to share my concern for other human beings (although you do express
this concern in a very interesting manner), so I like to think we're on the same side here. So what if aliens don't exist? So what if god doesn't
exist? I agree that it's our
responsibility to fix our own problems. And maybe, just maybe, this is the reason these non-existent advanced
alien civilizations aren't
helping us. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make the f*cker drink, so to speak. Especially when the
stupid animal has been conditioned to hate water and is carrying nuclear weapons. Well, that would make sense I suppose. It's not fair, but it makes
Someone on here has a signature, I've forgotten who it was, but I think it's brilliant. It sums this whole subject up quite nicely. It was something
like - "I'd rather have my mind opened by wonder, than closed by belief."
You are so certain that humans are the only civilization in the universe that even if a god damned mothership pulled up on your doorstep and offered
you free energy, you'd tell them to f*ck off. And you're not the only one. I believe we've all been conditioned this way on purpose. Or maybe it just
happened. Who really knows?
I believe they exist, but I can't prove it. Just like you can't prove they don't. Who's right? Me? I don't know. You? I don't know. But is it really
such a horrific subject to touch on? Is it really so "stupid" to speculate?
Sure, humans are to blame. But are you to blame? Am I? Did we do this? Do we want this? I don't bloody think so. But as I said, that's just my
opinion. Maybe we do. Judging by your hostility towards other human beings who are simply on a quest for truth and answers, maybe we are
bringing this all on ourselves. How hard is it to debate a topic like this without calling each other idiots? Has it come to that? Are we so far gone
that we can no longer rationally debate among each other? Oh, god help us. Wait, that's right. You said he doesn't exist.
Well, sh*t. I guess that's it then. I'm gonna go feel sorry for myself some more, because it's been working so well so far
Peace! And no disrespect. I admit I'm passionate about this subject but I'm not f*cking stupid. You have every right to say aliens don't exist because
there is very little solid evidence to support that they do. But don't call me stupid for wondering, man. It's actually quite a healthy thing to
And cheers to everyone else who's posted, I can relate to all of you, even (especially) not-so-ColCurious. Keep searching, and keep doing your part,
whatever it is.
