Back in 1999 at a web site called The ScifiVine, I wrote about how we were thought of by other races in the Galaxy as being nothing more than a race of murderous barbarians and that we would never be allowed off this planet unless we changed our ways and some beliefs. This line of thinking is now nothing new. What I didn't include back in those early days of my struggle to write about such things was the fact that we humans had walked down this path of technology before and had gotten to the point of being able to venture out into space. Though, then like now, we were too bloodthirsty and any race we might come into contact with would clearly be in danger. So we were stopped from getting to the point of being able to leave this planet and travel to other solar systems. If I'm right we have been stopped more than once before, it could be as many as three times, maybe even more. At the time of my learning about much of this, I made a mistake and it was thought by those telling about such things that I wasn't yet ready. I guess they were right as I didn't know how one would go about changing the ways of humans. Money, guns, war, it is all humans seem to think about, besides sex. Most humans still cannot get their head around the fact we are not the only creatures alive in this universe, or even how important all other life is on this planet is. Human kind seems to think it is the be all and end all of existence and nothing else much matters. So how would one, even many, turn this kind of thinking around? I'm starting to think it would be a waste of time even trying. It would take decades to achieve and I don't think we have that kind of time any more. This leads me to the coming prophecies and one that stands out is about the end of Human Kind. If one reads or interprets the prophecies correctly, it does only say that Human Kind comes to an end as we know it now, and not all life on this planet- which is consistent with what has happened in the past. So is this coming doom nothing more than a big slap on the wrist of us getting it wrong yet again? Can we ever get it right? It is really sad when you think about it. We could be interacting with other races, visiting other planets, learning about our real past, (even though it might not be as grand as we would hope for) doing things we only thought we could dream about. Yet for a few selfish greedy mindless so and so's, none of this will happen for us, it will only ever be a dream. I get depressed by all of this sometimes and wonder why I should be stuck on this planet of losers? Knowing too much is sometimes a curse and not a blessing. Being blissfully ignorant of such things has its advantages. But I am human and one with all others on this planet - part of the original sin. This original sin... is it that many years ago we ventured to other planets only to kill, plunder and return home with the spoils? It wouldn't surprise me if this were the case. Still, for some reason I hold a small glimmer of hope that one day we might raise above our evil ways, lay down our fears, put our faith in that which created us and not in weapons or money and join the rest of the Universe. I did, however, argue a point with those that told me about such things as we did sort of go from horse and buggy to space travel in one hell of a short period. My argument was that perhaps we had been interfered with, lead down the path of destruction through no choice of our own. They thought about this, but then pointed out that we do know the difference between right and wrong and we are the ones that make these decisions. If we truly did think that the only way to solve a problem was to pull out a weapon and use it, then we are truly a race not fit to leave this planet, but we all know this isn't the right way to solve a problem or differences we may have with each other. Its just the easy way, or should I say, the best way to ensure the problem is solved in favour of the one with the most weapons? Which is to say, right or wrong doesn't matter, what matters is those that are right have the most fire power. I guess there is nothing more to say, but goodbye 21st century, hello Armageddon. Those that know about this have themselves a space ark or is that International Space Station? Not that I think it will do them much good, since by the time the dust settles they will have spent so long in space there will be no returning to the surface anyway. Though I wish them good luck. So as Bender would say "Bring it on Baby!"
