One thing I’ve learned from internet communications is that when statements don’t receive comments they are patently agreed to by all or are deemed so ridiculous a reply would lower you to the level of the deranged but intellect enhanced lab chimp that somehow got a hold to a PC to post. Usually I’d assume the former, being correct in most things as I often am, but the topic of alien conspiracies just may have provoked the latter response.Extraterrestrial beings ARE believed in by my many. It’s just that certain types of these beings have far more popular support than others. Case in point:
Where the cat on fire and declaring in a thunderous voice another five to ten laws to live by or turning catnip into marijuana I’d be more inclined to believe this was a message from Jesus – that is his calling card according to experts.
I’ve got no problems with religion or the religious, but am personally more spiritual – this being code for my tendency to cling desperately to Pascal’s Wager
in the hopes that if the churchies are by some amazing stretch correct I can get some kind of divine community service like Clarence in It’s a Wonderful Life . Not a fun philosophic bent but safer than committing enough atrocities in this life to earn middle management in hell.
A supreme being, sure! The Bible version of this being, throwing tantrums and horrifically testing people, I already had an angry judgmental father thanks. Having an aunt that actually believes her conscience is the voice of God – as opposed to the more likely cultural conditioning she’s received since a child from my Grandma, whom she can’t agree with on what the color blue is – and a mother that finds Deepak Chopra insightful, I do sympathize. Not much though, since they aren’t seeing Him or His mom is every cloud formation or sink stain.
Aliens occasionally shanghaiing hicks for inappropriate close encounters of the anal kind is slightly more likely to my mind than the First Cause communicating through a vaguely recognizable bearded dude’s image who could just a well be Wolf Blitzer telling you to turn on CNN. Maybe if they had a political organization that killed or punished you for not believing in them for thousands of years, ET’s would be popular – assuming they want more than rough trade with NASCAR fans.
Now many readers are definitely sure this blog is authored by a perverted primate (and by Darwin aren’t wrong). Should this be the case, let me conclude LEMMY OUD OV TIS CAYJ – I R SMARD – NO MOOR SHOTS N HED PLEEZ!
