Back on the topic of superiority... if you have even the slightest sense of faith or spirituality... then you believe that we are ALL inferior lol. That doesn't bother me in the slightest. In fact, it takes a great deal of the pressure off
The Sapartans defeated how many invaders with a fraction of the troops the enemy had? Lookit up. It's cool. Never underestimate one you feel is "inferior", it'll come back and bite you on the buttucks.
The Greeks learned of the treachery near morning. They would barely have time to escape from the trap. Leonidas told the other Greeks to return home, to fight another day, but the Spartans stayed. The Thespians and Thebans joined them. There were no more than a few thousand who stayed.
Greeks knew they were about to die and they fought all the more fiercely for it. The Spartans put up the stoutest resistance, taking their stand on a little hill and fighting in a circle facing outward with enemies all around.
When Leonidas was killed, he was some distance away. Some of the Spartans formed a tight group, fought their way to his body, picked it up, then fought their way back to the main group on the hill.
The Persians seemed utterly unable to annihilate the last 300 Spartans. They demanded the body of Leonidas in return for the Spartan's lives, but the men refused to abandon the body of their King, declaring: "A Spartan leaves the field with his shield or upon it"
At last, the Spartans were killed by a hail of spears and arrows, the Persians fearing to close with these fearsome warriors.

Because it could cause world wide panic. Remember when there was a radio broadcast in america where they read from "War of the Worlds" (forgotten the author) and that caused chaos, that wasn't even real. Its a fictional story book. Just imagine the panic that would be caused if it were a real broadcast. We will be "ready" when the govt. thinks we have a great enough understanding and won't panic if such a thing is said.
EDIT: Remember the author now, H.G Wells
