An alien encounter would be the final nail in the coffin for Stone Age wizardry.
Ok, but why does the different religions’ reaction matter?
Why not a rabbi? Or an Imam? Or a guru? Or a reverend?
I have always admired NASA, but this is the dumbest thing they’ve ever done.
I don’t think that sodomizing their young will help with alien-human relations
Indigenous people of North and South America might have some insight as to why brining the church into making first contact, is a bad idea.
Why? So they can fuck em?
“We need somebody who has experience interacting with imaginary creatures.”
We’ll be collecting a portion of ETs salary and diddling his kids little red finger in no time.
Reminds me of the Expanse. Guy freaks out before first contact. Asks the preacher if God intends them to do this. Preacher ignores his fear out of her own curiosity. Guy kills himself from fear of the unknown.
There’s a place for religious leaders when it comes time for first contact. And in a way that’s more than reactionary that we would see if we just wait. You’d have some claiming they are demons/Satan/whoever. We basically already have that for everything already. But alien contact would drastically change how everything on earth works/is known. People often look to religious leadership when profound change is on the horizon.
I’d rather have some groups thinking about it before it happens.
What will be interesting to see is what the aliens bring to the table.
*”Greetings, beings of Earth. We have assembled a panel of our leading scientists and artists to communicate with your greatest thinkers.”*
“Uh, that’s nice. We’ve brought along a guy who believes in an invisible Sky-Person that neither he nor anyone else has ever seen, but who he claims made the whole cosmos and has very strong ideas on the subject of sex.”
*”You know what, humanity? Maybe this wasn’t such a great idea. Nice to have met you guys, maybe we’ll check in again in a few thousand more of your solar rotations.”*
Tell me you have proof of aliens without telling me you have proof of aliens.
well priests prepared the spanish for their encounter with American natives..
