It never ceases to amaze me at how people think that the human race is stupid. That we do not have the ability to research, develop and invent things.
That we do not know how to be resourceful and intelligent enough to make things.
Did the OP bother to go back and look at the history of things being invented? Does the OP seriously think that 500 years should go by from the time
the first transistor was invented to having CPU's, instead of mere decades?
Has the OP gone back and looked at how mile stone inventions are based upon work, research and science done by many humans before then over periods of
Has the OP neglected to think about how when things are invented and produced, that those things in turn help us understand and create newer and
better things? How that process can speed up the pace in which newer things are created?
Has the OP thought about how as new things were invented, human's quality of life has improved, leaving more time for learning, research and
developing things? A thousand years ago the OP would have spent most of their life just trying to survive, get food and stay alive. Where as now the
OP mere has to go to the store to get food, see a doctor when they get sick, and can travel anywhere on the face of the planet in a mater of hours,
leaving more than enough time for someone like the OP to have a better education and dedicate a large portion of their life to creating something new
(if they so desire to do that).
But instead people want to think it's all because of aliens. So Aliens gave us the steam engine, so that we no longer had to depend upon wind, water
and animal power? So Aliens gave us the internal combustion engine? So Aliens taught us all about electricity (never mind the decades and centuries of
people experimenting and learning about it....it MUST have been aliens).
That it MUST have been Aliens that gave us telescopes so that we could observe celestial orbits, and it MUST have been Aliens that taught people like
Kepler and Newton how orbital mechanics work.......I mean after all humans are too stupid to figure these things out, yes?
That it MUST have been Aliens, and not humans that experimented with chemical compounds, gasses and performed experiments to develop physics.
It MUST have been Aliens that gave us medicine, never mind the fact that for literally THOUSANDS of years, humans had been using different kinds of
plants, minerals and animals to help people who were sick. Humans are too stupid to figure out biology, botany and biochemicals.
You do understand that in order to "reverse engineer" something, you have to know what that something does in the first place?
If I were to take a car battery and use a time machine and drop it somewhere in England let us say back in the year 1250 AD.........do you really
think the people of the time are going to understand what it is? What it's for? And how to build another?
While I do think humans can be stupid (look at how we trash areas of our planet and kill each other off over things like religion), we are also very
curious, intelligent, clever, resourceful, adaptive and full of ingenuity. I have no problems at all believing that we are the ones who have invented
all that we have.
