OH SO ALONE
We humans don't want to be alone in the universe. It is a hard pill to swallow if we were. Christians like to think that earth is the only planet with people that God created but at least they believe in angels. Angels would mean that humans are not alone but imagine if we were actually alone, I mean really alone, alone with no other life outside of that here on earth. Imagine that this little blue marble was it. How would we process that thought? How could we even cope? AND FOR GOOD REASON
Scientists are even surer now than ever before that there is other life out there in the Universe. How could there not be? The universe is a very big place and as such it has to have more life. Doesn't it? But why do we even care? Why are we so needy for more life? Don't we kill all the life we find here on earth? If it is a forest, we chop it down. If it is a prairie, we pave it over. If it is animals, we eat them. Even the animals we don't eat we kick out of our habitat and the other intelligent species on earth, those we train to do stupid tricks and we keep them as pets or put them on exhibit. So why the heck do we want to encounter life elsewhere? What would we do with it? DO ONTO OTHERS
We suppose that if we find a planet with earth like species that we could colonize that world and do there what we do here or that if there is intelligent life elsewhere that they would be so pi$$ S#!+ happy to see us that they would endow us with all their efin wisdom and technology, teach us how to use it so that we could then bless them back by taking over their world, giving them our diseases, enslaving their people, raping their women and then telling them to be grateful because we brought them Jesus and he of course loves them. And oh yeah that if their sorry a$$es are not grateful and accept him(and by him we actually mean us) as lord and master…uhem…I mean savior that our God will make sure to burn them in excruciating torture for perpetual ages ad infinitum. WHAT IS GOOD FOR THE GOOSE
Yeah that sounds about right. But of course we wouldn't actually phrase it just like that regardless of how history would unfold exactly like that. No we would use polite words and diplomatic speech and make it sound so freakin sweet that the aliens would swear we were selling Girl Scout cookies. And we would be so efin full of ourselves and how wonderful we are that we would not even notice that the only technology the aliens brought for us to engage with was their industrial size barbeque grills and a planet size bottle of Sweet Baby Rays. No they wouldn't eat the lowers species on the food chain or the flora. No that would be like us choosing to not eat animals and instead eat the grasses of the field. Nope, they would go directly for The Alien version of pork, HUMAN!THE GOOSE IS COOKED
The way I see it the only conceivable excuse any intelligent being could have for traveling to a $#!+ #Ole of a world like ours is for the same reason that we pull sea bugs out from drainage ditches and pigs from their slop, to eat them of course. It's not as bad as it sounds though and if nothing else we can take consolation in the knowledge that the race of aliens that will harvest us humans from this planet are eco-conscience aliens who most likely seeded this earth organically with our species and has now come to harvest us.
