I've been thinking more about abductions and alien technology.

Why do we get so smug about alien technology we don't know spit
about? Here we are, with just 300 years of science behind us, and
learning more about our limitations every day, decreeing what a race
of more advanced beings will do.

Can't we even learn from our mistakes? Two generations ago, more or
less, canned foods were introduced, followed by frozen food. This
seemed scientific, futuristic. It was progress. If you went to
someone in the 1930's, and told them that near the turn of the
millennium, farmers' markets would be springing up in every major
city, they'd think that you were crazy. "Can't be! It's much more
efficient and advanced to eat canned or frozen food!"

Well, surprise. Canned and frozen foods just don't taste too good.
Free-range chickens taste better than the kind produced in chicken
factories, and as for the average modern tomato, bred for durability,
so it'll be easy to ship...forget it. You might as well eat cardbo
ard.

Suppose the aliens have learned these lessons on a larger scale.
Suppose they've found that test-tube humans don't have rich and
interesting souls. Suppose they've found that sperm and eggs, brought
together in a flying saucer lab, produce children that aren't good
for much.

Suppose, in other words, that  they've learned to appreciate
free-range humans. (Or, in this case, I guess, free-range hybrids.)
So they breed us in as close to the old-fashioned way as they dare.

And then our cocky skeptics come along, saying it just isn't
possible. "No, the aliens would be way beyond that." As if we knew!

Back in the '50s, everybody confidently predicted that, long before
the 1990's, we'd all have atom-powered cars. Funny thing, Dennis...I
don't see you driving one.
