Observing Cultures Makes Me Believe...

21 posts in this topic

Watched MTV VMA last weekend. And had to endure a Catholic retreat lead by a priest known to be a miracle worker.

My belief is now pretty much solidified. We Earthlings really, really need to be invaded, conquered, and enslaved by the baddest SOBs out there.

One meteor will do, and it can't come soon enough.

It seems to me the ratio of things getting better vs things getting worse is weighted on the things getting worse side. I didn't watch the MTV VMA, but from the reports I read and the "music" that won awards, popular culture in the U.S. is maybe the worse it's ever been.

Should the human race be punished by ET? We probably should be punished, then shown a better way to express ourselves.

This likelihood may be slim, so perhaps creeping things getting better is our only hope.

We came into existence relatively late in the game as far as the universe is concerned. We became a small, raging fire and when we are extinguished no one will even the notice the smoke trickling from our ashes. We are a primitive species with delusions of grandeur that really have no place other than here on this little blue rock we never deserved in the first place.

Are all people on the planet engaging in the things you find banal?

Some are probably doing great things.

Just a thought.

Absolutely! There are many wonderful, caring, intelligent people doing great things in the world. I guess I would rather see the good in people. I also got rid of my cable television years ago! Don't miss it a bit.

That's a good decision imho. Far too much negativity, low life general habitual living, and commercialism on TV these days.

But they don't get on TV.

Perhaps a solution might be for the Aliens to knock out the TV stations, and newspaper production facilities.

Or maybe the aliens will take Miley Cyrus and the Kardashian clan off our hands and back to their planet. We can hope right?

Maybe they already are here and are initiating the stupidity going on in the world for the benefit of ratings on their version of "The Truman Show"? :unsure2:

Why bother invading and conquering when they can make bajillions broadcasting our insanity to an entertainment-hungry galaxy?

Sure it has a place, never said it didn't. I just choose to not focus on it.

I hope our future overlords are whole lot more straight-laced than that.

Your statement is somewhat Paradoxical and radical. Do you believe we all should be punished? By your thinking as Humans we all fall into one category. Many people in History have thought like that, probably the most Notorious being Hitler. but while his view was limited to groups, yours damns us all. Take a while to reflect on that.

Catholocism would state that we should be punished by God, you are stating that we should be punished by Aliens. Do you not see the irony in your statement and the danger that you have have just replaced one excuse to not be responsible for our futures with another.

As others have posted, there is plenty of good in the world. Lets focus on cleaning up our own mess and stop dreaming of some 'all powerful' to come and sort it out for us.

As Edmund Burke said: 'All it takes for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing' or in this case: for good men to wait for ET.

Aliens are well know for their sexual orientation aka anal probing, or sperm sampling. I am very confident that they will pick Canada as invasion initial place

Canada is too cold, Aliens would probably enjoy somewhere more tropical.

Trust me, for some of us it will be one hell of a career opportunity. We will sign up, get trained, see the stars and kill the xenos.
