    We eat most other species. Aliens would most likely do the same to us.
    And puddled water is rare. Can you imagine animal species that dump body waste into their own water supply?

    I've thought about this more than I care to admit and I don't think that is true. The energies involved with traveling faster than light would easily wipe out a planet. I think that any alien species that has reached that level of technology would destroy itself if it hadn't evolved philosophically as well as technologically. Then again they might think totally different than us and have a totally different nature. Then we'd be in deep doo doo.

    Got a source for this claim that we eat most other species? I bet that for every species you can name that Humans eat, I can name five that humans don't eat.

    Once you realize they are demons not aliens you will be wishing you hadn't.

    If they were demons who wanted to be found and seen, why wouldn't they leave hard evidence?

    One thing that I think about is the possibility that there’s a practical ceiling for technological advancements, and that this ceiling might be much lower than what people like to fantasize about. For a few centuries we’ve been enjoying a steep slope of technological advancements, but is it out of the realm of possibility that in say 200 years it really starts to exhaust itself?

    You always hear people talking about a planet just like Earth in 2021, yet 500 years ahead of us, or 1000 years ahead, or 50,000 years ahead, etc. But what if instead there’s millions of goldilocks planets out there who simply “Peaked” and to peak is to only be ahead of Earth by a much humbler amount? Also imagine that such a technological ceiling allowed “Peaked” worlds to communicate with each other, but for anyone to physically travel between those planets would simply never be in the realm of practical possibility.

    Probably because you would be smart enough to see the hard evidence and run away. You catch more flies with honey. Doesn't make the trap any less deadly.

    Why would we run from the evidence for aliens? I'd have thought that they'd want to be out in the open with flying saucers in front of the White House to prop up the false narrative of being space aliens.

    What's the source of this narrative? (I'll try to match the video later, but a slow hour is more than I'm willing to invest at this time).

    Nephilim get a couple of vague references in the Bible and a part in a massively expanded version of Genesis 6 in the Book of Enoch (but not many Christians see this as a reliable source).

    But all the stories about Nephilim space aliens and ancient world genetic engineering just seems to be as completely made up as UFO conflicts with space federations and dragon blood lines.

    I don't think there is such a thing, Coffee. So I'm not at all worried.

    Was there a video link there?

    It seems to be missing.

    Let me try again: Chuck Missler - the return of the nephilim - fallen angel hybrids - as aliens:

    You make a good point. We should be eating far more species that we do.

    I've thought about this just a little, and it seems to me that if aliens ate other living things, their metabolisms would have evolved to obtain energy from the local (alien) life forms they co-evolved with. Evolution also tends to select for particular care in eating what is unfamiliar.

    So it seems to me that in the unlikely event that alien metabolism would be compatible with Earthly life, they would be unlikely to want to eat what would be, to them, alien life.

    All speculation, of course, and they might turn out to be like the Kanamit in Damon Knight's 1950's short story, "To Serve Man" (one of my childhood favourites!)

    * Aliens = (non earth lifeforms)
    Do Aliens ? I'd put good money on it.
    Do Intelligent Aliens exist? I might put a few bucks on that.
    Have Aliens visited Earth in the last few thousand years? Not a bet I'd be willing to take.

    They are very very sneaky, unless you are an old farmer walking in his field late at night for some obscure reason. Then they become rather inept.
