People belive anything.

It has always amazed me that people believe that crop circles are created by Extra-Terrestrials. Why people believe this nonsense baffles me.

If I understand the concept, people believe that Aliens come to this planet after flying Trillions of miles and draw on the Earth's surface, in farm fields, different shapes for their amusement. If the Aliens really like art than they should visit a museum with a Monet or look at the pictures in Playboy (a woman's naked or partially clothed body is art). What the hell would they need to do this for??

Let us look at the big picture. We are 4.2174 light years from Proxima Centauri and 4.3548 lights years from Alpha Centauri. This equates to about 39,900,000,000,000 km (24,792,710,000,000 miles) and 41,200,000,000,000 km (25,600,493,000,000 miles) from Earth. We do not even know if there are any planets with life around these stars. The nearest planet outside our solar system with life maybe a million times further away. Traveling at the speed of light it could take thousands of years to get to this solar system. This is not Star Trek. Matter can not travel at the speed of light.

Away from the science for a moment. Why would any intelligent being come to this hell hole? Let us be honest, this is a hell hole. We treat each other and the other creatures horribly. We murder each other because we disagree with the way we think. We elect thieves, liars and cheats to represent us. The list is quite exhausting at the down falls of the creatures at the top of the food chain.

I think that the Nazca Lines of Pampa Colorada, Peru are inspiring. But I would tend to believe that these were made as symbols to some god and not by a visitor from space.

All in all, if we have been or will be visited by aliens from other planets we should be a little kinder to each other. You never know, the clown you just cut may have a ray gun.

Today’s two cents.
