I’ve been conducting some polls among my social media communities and though not earth shaking, the contradictory results are interesting. Let’s just say members of the Sci-Fi community are less likely to believe in Ancient Alien influence on Earth than members of the community known as: Ancient Aliens, Extraterrestrial Influence, and UFOs.
I figured there would be very little discrepancy but take a look at the results.
DISCUSSION: The Turgai Geoglyphs are virtually unstudied earthworks and NASA has taken an interest in them. These earthworks are recognizable from the air only, are huge, and the oldest is estimated to be 8,000 years old.
QUESTION: What do think these ancient earthworks are?
When Aliens Visit
DISCUSSION: Renowned physicist, Stephen Hawking, suggests visiting ETs may not be friendly cosmic neighbors. (ProbeNote: For recap visit, Aliens—Will They Be Naughty or Nice?)
QUESTION: Do you think they will be peaceful, aggressive, or just curious?
Some noteworthy comments:
Most people in these communities offer either funny comments or informative ones. However, there are a few haters out there, as we all know, who say stuff like: “Ancient Aliens. Is this a joke?” Or this guy: “I’d rather deal with an actual alien (angry or not), than a happy fantasy obsessed alien hunting zealot. Can we waste yet more time on absolute nonsense… please?”
Wow. I’ve been called a lot of things, but never “a happy fantasy obsessed alien hunting zealot.” I’m fraking honored. And look how much time he spent commenting.
But I gotta wonder why someone who’d make such a comment would even join a Sci-Fi community if they are such non-believers in the imagination.
Another poll for another day. Back to ancient aliens, they are way more fun to imagine than hater logic. If you didn’t vote, please leave a comment and let me know your opinion unless you’re a hater and if you are, take a road trip to Colorado and get you some happy juice instead of commenting.
