That would imply that they seeded life on this planet and then either kept messing up, or were *extremely* patient, for 2 billion years...
It's a variation of an old theory, that we were created for the purpose of being exploited in some manner. Aside from always having loads of logical
flaws clinging to them, those theories are immediately suspect (to me) because, in whatever form these "superbeings" take, their most enduring quality
is their affinity for deception. If they really were superior then they would have no need for deception at all. It would simply be an undeniable fact
If group A is inherently superior to group B, and the As wish to subjugate the Bs, the most logical step for group A to take is to make the fact of
their superiority explicit and beyond any possibility of doubt to group B. It is like nuclear deterrence - a superior weapon is useless (as a
deterrent) if your enemies don't know about it.
The only reason *not* to use a trump card, is if your opponents have the same potential as you.
This tells me three things: 1), we are not as weak as we think we are, 2) they are not as strong as we think they are, and 3) the discrepancies here
are rooted in their so-far success in keeping such deceptions in place.
