Hmmm. Interesting. I’m guessing from your post immediately above, E.M., that your initial “Ambition > Intellect” applied to the aliens. I misunderstood and assumed it applied to humans. That’s why I added “Ego >”.
Implying that ET in question is even smart enough to visit us themselves.. We could be so separate in the timeline that they’ve already reached their intelligent peak and destroyed themselves thousands of years ago or they could be in their stone age.. But that’s also implying there aren’t more than billions of possible forms of ET.. I’m just going in circles now.
All in all.. If I were an intelligent being and looked down on this earth, I would run far away..
Why assume ET would care about how smart we are if they can even make the journey to this planet?
They might care…if they’re out there and have developed the technical means to make intersteller spaceflight practical…but for all we know, they may just see us as an infestation to be removed, or served up as an exotic gourmet meal.
There are many who believe that the aliens visited earth before. Erich Von Daniken has written several books that have pointed out that the early monuments show clearly men from space. Add to his work, there is another young man from Scotland who has spent years researching the same possibility. Their research has been shown on the History Channel “Ancient Aliens.” The results of the research makes a lot more sense than the stories of the Old Testament. The premise of the series is the possibility that the aliens helped us humans build Stonehenge and the Pyramids.
Whatever the truth, it is obvious that America and Europe have gone to great expense hiding what they know about the space ships that have crashed on our locations. If this could be exposed it would kick the shit out of the Bible.
I have always thought that von Däniken’s hypothesis was very interesting, but there is no evidence to prove any of it to be true. It sounds great, but as per the rules of the scientific method, I think it’s time to let go of von Däniken. But it was fun while it lasted. It least for me it was.
