A Fair Question For the "We Are Not Alone" Crowd

"If those bulbous-eyed green men are so smart, why do they have to stick probes up abductees’ butts to see what we’re made of?" asks Arts & Letters Daily in linking to this book review — What might they want?

As I've previously commented, the UFO encounter stories and accessories, particularly the "faerie" circles, seem to be a modern recasting of more ancient characters of folklore.

It would be an interesting retort to Dawkins if a UFO landed tomorrow and the alien to walk out of it looked more like Puck or the Faerie Queen than little green men or greys?

And might there not be a comparison made between the "grey" and some of the elvish species known to British folklore?

Once again, I highly recommend C. S. Lewis' enchanting "Space Trilogy". In the third book, "That Hideous Strength," Lewis considers exactly what danightman above suggests re: aliens and mythological creatures of yore.

In similar vein, one might want to catch up on the medieval worldview in Lewis' more academic book: "The Discarded Image".

And now for something completely different:

Perhaps one of the most off-the-wall, sustained, gaining-traction UFO / alien "theorists" in the "public" realm today has to be David Icke. Yet just what he has against Boxcar Willie is anybody's guess!

Isn't David Icke the one that says that the elite are reptoid monsters, al la the miniseries "V" that showed on NBC in the 1980s? (BTW, isn't it amazing how unchanged Jane Badler looks at 57?)

As I recall, he also has a bit of an anti-catholic streak since he claims the Pope is a reptoid as well. OTOH, he did manage to make Bill Maher look ridiculous on his own Christian-bashing film.

David Icke had some good stuff to say about the powers-that-be setting up an alien false flag.

Re: Iosue,

Also mentioned in Report from Iron Mountain. Former blogger Stephen Hand and his frequent guests Paul & Philip Collins spoke about the UFO phenomenon as a "Earth based deception" on the part of elements in the CIA, many of whom had as a project the "reegnineering" of religion into a pantheistic "Church of the God Galactic."

It's impossible to prove a negative, and thus it's impossible to prove there are not UFO's.

It's also apparent that the crop circles are surprisingly intricate and accurate for just appearing out of nowhere in the twinkling of an eye overnight.

The cause is probably not UFO's but neither do they come across as man made.
