I ended up streaming for most of the night. Sorry.
I got online to post but went to Netflix. I was bored and looked for something different. Found Ancient Aliens. It's a History Channel TV show but I didn't know that. I watched season one (five episodes). Seasons one and two are available for streaming.
It was fascinating, the five albums.
I think it's silly to think we are the only possible beings in the galaxy.
Have aliens visited the earth?
I wouldn't be at all surprised.
In terms of what was presented, I see it as a jumping off point, possibilities.
Some may see it as fact and, if they do, more power to them.
But I don't know any of the experts presented so I'll take it as a possibility. (I don't know many scientific experts, period.)
It's a show that makes you think.
And I've shared many times before that my favorite genre (film, TV or books) is sci-fi.
I found most thought provoking the possibility that aliens visiting in Biblical times brought with them nuclear devices and that's what turned Lot's wife into a pillar of salt. They talked about the don't look back message she was instructed in and how you're told not to look at a nuclear explosion (directly look at) as well. So I found that interesting to marvel over.
Ancient Aliens is still on History Channel with new episodes. I may have to try to find out when it airs and check it out.
On sci-fi, I'm reading John Love's Faith, new novel just out this month, and it's incredible. Characters you think you'd dislike you instead end up rooting for. It's a very clever book.
