I think of Stephen Hawkins and the movie '30 days of night'.
Hawkins believed that we are not alone in the universe. He believed there is intelligent life
out there. He stated that although he believe intelligent life exists in the universe, we would
probably be better off not finding them.
I agree with Hawkins.
When I think how mean (to say the least) people are on our planet, what would make me
think otherwise on other planets?
We joke around and say how terrible we are, always fighting with each other, always take
sides or not taking sides with other countries, the constant wars, etc. However, what if
the intelligent life on other planets are just like us or worse?
For some reason, I tend to think of the movie '30 days of night' when I think of aliens.
If you've never watched that movie, it was about animalistic nature of vampires killing
of a small pipe line town in Alaska during their 30 days of darkness.
We tend to call ourselves 'intelligent life' but I am not so sure that is a good calling for
us. We'd probably be more true to ourselves if we called us 'stupid life' or 'angry life'
or 'ignorant life' because I don't see us as very intelligent at all. If there was a sliding
scale of ignorance and stupidity, humans would be at the high end.
Some people say, there is aliens out there, watching us, visiting us, why don't they stop
and let themselves be known? I think if that really is happening, the answer is very
obvious. Why would they want to be known to a bunch of angry stupid war hoarding
quacks that kill each other, destroy their environment, and murder their animals? Face
it 'intelligent life' would not want anything to do with us.
BUT what if there is aliens like the vampires in '30 days of night' or some other creatures
that could destroy us in the blink of an eye? What if aliens took over our planet and
put us all in cages for breeding and their supper?
Most anything you can think of might be possible. A planet with no plants? A planet
that aliens breed their own kind for food? A planet with aliens that do not eat and
survive on air (or some kind of organism) only?
What do you think?
