    Sometimes people get scared at the idea that there may be aliens and other smarter beings out there. But in reality that's awesome because we would have a larger family that we originally thought. The idea that were alone and its all up to us, is far more scary than us not being alone. I always say that were part alien because theirs so many different humans races on the planet. People can say we came from monkeys.. but then why are the monkeys still here.. wouldn't they be gone and evolved into humans already? I think we were seeded here

    Ok, what's the big idea of resurrecting a thread from 2002? Pete (LBM) hasn't been on here in over a year. Come back Pete.
    My bikes: 2001 Litespeed Tuscany---
    2013 Cannondale CAAD 10 2 "Racing Edition"--The bike shop owner said it's toast. R.I.P.
    2014 or 2015 CAAD 10 3 coming soon. Decision time.

    It is a bit more Germain to a Bike list.

    We...I mean they...mean you...errr us... no harm. Disregard the book in their hands that's entitled "How to Serve Man". It's not true that you make good casseroles.

    Peace. Ride your bikes in circles. Don't look up to the sky.

    This is a ridiculously common error in the understanding of natural selection - scientists simply say that man and chimps share a common ancestor. One doesn't "turn into" the other over time.

    Read here for a better understanding: http://www.noanswersingenesis.org.au/


    People believe strange things for a variety of reasons, aliens being one of only MANY of these. There's really no empirical evidence (actual empirical, shared evidence.....not some whack-job's personal sightings--otherwise there's also a lot of "evidence" for the ghost of Elvis, Nessy, etc.) so I don't believe in aliens. The idea is interesting, but just because it makes the world seem more interesting (and it makes old X-files reruns more fun) isn't a good reason for the belief to me.

    This is the problem I have with aliens. People usually assume they are benevolent beings.

    But I think if aliens exist, they'll kick our asses, cart off the women, and steal the bicycles.

    I have no issue with the concept of aliens, I wonder if permaybehaps they have been involved in/at key points of our development, as a species, When I start thinking about the whole concept of what life was like a few thousand years ago.
    Fire and the the uses of it. Metallurgy, writing, language-- most of that makes sense to a point.
    Then you get into things like Stonehenge, the Pyramids (both Egyptian and Mexican) Nazca lines, the Antikythera mechanism, aluminum belt buckles in 4000 yr old graves.
    It all kind of make you wonder.

    I've always told anyone that would listen that humans don't belong on earth, we just don't fit into the system, we are the only critter on earth that destroys its own habitat for a profit. We destroy everything and blame evreything but ourselves for it. So if you ask me someone (or something) dropped of that "troublsome little critter" thats been causing so many problems on their world and placed it on earth, and that makes all of us Aliens.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I have no problem with aliens. Provided they follow the rules and apply for citizenship. I really would rather they not vote until they are sworn in, though.

    Oh, and I don't want them given social security benefits until after they've paid into the system.

    And they do make some fairly decent Kryptonite bike locks, too!

    My co-workers are solid proof that there are aliens and amongst us too! Take Steve with his wispy hair, the stuff moves on it's own as you talk to him. Or regarde Talitha who can turn her head completely to the rear so she faces backwards, or lil' Renee, who is about five foot even yet can eat twice as much as me and not gain weight. Lastly, there's Kirk, who can drink the cold, day old coffee with no ill effects.
    I love pho long time.
