Atheists can’t offer the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis as the
causa principia of UFOs, and here’s why…
Aside from our long-expressed view here that the Earth is an
inconsequential planet in a wayward Solar System on the fringe of the Milky Way
(our galaxy), a planet that doesn’t call attention to itself, amongst the other
wonders of the known Universe, and therefore hardly a beacon for alien cultures
advanced enough to know that.
But the primary reason that atheists can’t proffer the Extraterrestrial
Hypothesis for UFOs derives from the fact [sic] that evolution is unique to
this planet, this Earth.
There are no other planets, anywhere in the Universe, -- or
so infinitesimally few – with the environmental factors like Earth’s, that
evolution, as it took place here, could not have happened there.
Human beings, as Darwin’s evolutionary string provides,
would not appear anywhere outside of Earth. It’s a virtual impossibility.
However, one can posit that a Divine Presence or
Intelligent, Sentient Force or Entity, may have seeded the Universe with beings
selected by the Imaginative Mind of that Omniscient Being, or God, if you will.
But atheists find such a view to be anathema.
(I haven’t brought up the difficulty of alien peoples
visiting Earth in the droves that UFO reports seem to indicate. The economies
for such travels would be staggering, let alone the sheer numbers of such
travelers, mincing their way to the Earth, rather than visiting more luxurious
venues or elementally fecund locales. Earth has no minerals or elements unique
This leaves us with the Multiverse scenario, bringing it
with it like caveats for interstellar travel, or the Time-Travel option, which
is an acceptable hypothetical explanation not foreign to current thinking of theoretical physicists.
But those UFO explanations are thin and not fleshed out by
most in the UFO community.
The ETH is the simpleton view that UFO mavens can hunker
down with, and not strain a neurological muscle.
But it’s based upon premises that make intellectuals cringe.
