Let the hilarity commence! I remember reading that classic tome in goofery, ‘Chariots of the Gods’. The book, and those others of that type, claim, that the harbingers of civilization were aliens. Then there are the ones who claim that we, as a species were created by aliens(an experiment gone wrong as it turns out). These postulations or pustules, if you like, were made for many things, but in-depth analysis ain’t one of them. One thing they were made for however was the infinite fodder for hilarity inherent in these suppositions. I am going to do one of those ‘what if ‘ scenarios, that is if I can stop laughing long enough! Let the goofery commence, sirrah!
10,000 years ago in the wilds of Africa(These space ships always land in Africa or some other remote place where mankind doesn’t initially see them). The aliens are either here to research ‘man’, or are shipwrecked and must make do with what is available at the time ala Robinson Crusoe. In interacting with the lowly beast-like humanoids, they give them ‘knowledge’ that accelerate man’s evolution and development. Hence such ancient civilizations as the Egyptians, Mesopotamian, Inca, Aztec, Chinese, hell, anywhere where the inhabitants weren’t white, were created by aliens! Of course the white advanced civilizations started out of thin air. No aliens for them unless they were genetically engineered by the aliens! That explains their ‘superiority’ to others!
Not even a trashy dime novelist or serial writer could come up with some of this crap! Here’s my take on what an alien would do if the crash/landed on earth, it taint pretty but provides an insight into these ‘aliens’.
“On a wind blown night somewhere in bumf*ck nowhere, on a remote plain or forest, or savanna, take your pick, a UFO crashes/lands. Out pops tall gorgeous man whores, I mean aliens! Here’s two aliens fighting over some heifer whilst Tars Tarkas referees:
You see they are not that much different than humans! Guess what? Most of these aliens would be white or a reasonable facsimile thereof. However these aliens got here, they do the following; Take a look around, seek ‘intelligent’ life, which they do-not find. Smelly, filthy, half nekkid hairy assholes do-not count! It is at this point that Godzilla enters the picture devours some of the aliens, burps farts, and goes to sleep. Alternately, the alien gets back on their spaceship and hightails it out of there. If the alien crash lands, he proceeds to commit suicide by taking a flying leap off a cliff. My scenario would be over in about five to ten minutes of the alien landing. ‘They came, they saw, they fucked off!’
Another alternative view? Perhaps this is indeed a vacation spot ala the Predator movies. This is according to those who posit that aliens taught the ancient societies their advanced culture/knowledge. In this scenario, they would have treated the humans like pets. You see, they probably missed Fluorite, from their home planet:
Or perhaps *()&^%$#(no equivalent in the human tongue): At least )(*&^%, doesn’t try to hump your leg or sniff your crotch! The only thing they taught these humans was to jump, sit, stay, roll over and such. Such was their regard for the lowly humans. They viewed the humans at best as reminders of their beloved pets back on Uranus or nuisances to be avoided at all costs! In any case, they did not stick around for longer than they had to!
For those of you who believe that the aliens fostered these ancient cultures, perhaps you also believe in Santa Claus. So be it, now go play with Uranus!
