Jesus, what a list of all things you're "not going to do" does it ever end?

As I said earlier, aliens landing isn't going to affect me one way or another unless 1) they land in force and nuke the planet (that'd affect me), or 2) have some nifty technology that trickles down to affect me. But other than that, what's the big thrill? It's not as if I'm going to go ask any of these little green men to explain the "secrets of the universe" to me. I don't do that with little pink human men (because I don't think any of them know any secrets), and I'm not about to do it with Space Brothers. That's more along Nabby's line...he gushes over anyone who tells him he knows more than he does, so he would do the same thing if the being talking to him was a puddle of slime from Neptune. :-) For me, it would be the same issue if God suddenly announced Himself and made Himself obvious. I'd go "Ho-hum" and go on about my life. What's to change? I *ALREADY* live according to my principles; I'm certainly not going to change any of them because of something some God might say. And I'm certainly not going to praise or revere a being I consider a sadistic thug (what else can you possibly call the being who thought up Ebola?). So I'd just live my life pretty much the way I live it now, with no change one way or another. In general, I think that people use the idea of aliens to distract themselves from the here and now, and put themselves into "What if" mode. That's almost by definition a state of unreality, something to put off dealing with "What is." From: "Michael Jackson mjackson74@...

Thus if real, the ET's are such shits they are pandering to the crappy governments we have here on earth so who wants to schmooze with them? From: "TurquoiseBee turquoiseb@...

So you're concerned that the guy who was angry for having been taken out of the rotation for future NASA missions because he wouldn't train for them and then found that the only way he could get any media attention at all was to claim to have seen UFOs might have a credibility problem? Go figure. :-) If there are aliens visiting us and we're not being told -- it robs every person on Earth. EVERY PERSON ON EARTH. On the other hand, if all of this is just self-serving bullshit by people like Gordo who went little crazy trying regain the attention they had for a short time as astronauts, then why should a government add to the craziness by dealing with their claims? Neither you, nor I, nor anyone ever could possibly be who we are now if we knew that UFOs are real. IT. WOULD. CHANGE. EVERYTHING. Bullshit. I can honestly say that if irrevocable proof was published 'round the world of the existence of aliens, it would not change my life in any way. Same if irrevocable proof of the existence of God could be found and disseminated. Neither "event" would affect me in any way. NOTHING in my life would change. I don't really understand why you think either would affect you. Seriously. WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE ABOUT YOUR LIFE if it turned out that aliens existed? I ask because I honestly can't think of anything that I would change about my life, given proof of *either* aliens, or God.
