Extra-Terrestrial Life – Why Are We Reluctant to Believe?
Posted on April 28, 2011 by Dr. Linda Steiner http://drlinsteiner.wordpress.com
The wide variety of social forces that have conditioned human perception toward the nonexistence of extra-terrestrial life are far too many to effectively address in this column – but when viewed in totality – it appears as though human interpretation of religious scriptures, science-fiction propaganda, and wide spread ignorance and cultivated fear have combined to render our collective belief in the existence of ETs as implausible, at best. But are these socially constructed conclusions reasonable and accurate when viewed from a scientific or metaphysical standpoint?
Historically, approaches to addressing this question have been limited to the confines of “paranormal” phenomena. Well outside the boundaries of “legitimate” scientific investigation, reports citing evidence of, or contact with, ET’s have been largely marginalized, trivialized, ridiculed and/or silenced. But, if one only takes the time to personally investigate the enormity of data available – it appears as though the world’s population has been grossly misled.
We’re currently undergoing a massive shift in the nature and amount of information we are being offered from the scientific community. What used to be a topic exclusively reserved for Sci-Fi media, (“unsolved mysteries”, etc.), vast amounts of information from reliable and valid sources are now regularly appearing on the History/History International channels (see Ancient Alien/Astronaut series), as well as the Universe series on the Science channel. Ancient anthropologists, astrophysicists and theologians are now routinely attesting to the existence of ET visitation – citing compelling evidence that supports the legitimacy of their claims.
Much of the modern world’s population has been reluctant to embrace this realization due to the socialized mentality that has been cultivated by religious leaders, governmental cover-ups, and the fear of negative stereotypes. In terms of religious socialization, we have been led to believe that human life is a unique manifestation of our Creator, warranting singular, specialized status and value.
But modern day theologians are pointing out that many religious scriptures may, in fact, be referencing extra-terrestrial guidance – rather than the religious deities we have adopted and embraced. Many religious followers may feel threatened by this notion – as it somehow challenges their belief in a Divine creator. However, such fears are unfounded. Even if our religious teachings and icons actually came from ancient alien sources – this does not preclude the existence of God – as God represents the Creator of all life – regardless of location.
With leaps in the advancement of modern astronomical technology and metaphysical findings, it’s ludicrous to presume that the vast expanse of cosmic multi-verses (multiple universes) would not be teaming with intelligent life. To cling to the notion that humans are the only intelligent life form in existence is not only a scientifically indefensible position, but heavily laden in egocentrism and arrogance. From the authentic crop circles that defy any Earthly scientific basis (see YouTube – The Science of Crop Circles), to the megalithic ancient structures (Stonehenge, etc.) and hieroglyphs that permeate sites all over the world, the amount of evidence pointing to the existence of ET visitation is, indeed, extensive.
World governments have been engaging in steady acts of covert operations to conceal encounters with ET’s since WWII. But of late, many current and retired military officers and high-ranking government officials are now coming forward to disclose accounts involving sightings and/or contact with ET beings – especially surrounding nuclear weapons sites and military installations around the world (see The Disclosure Conference, September 2010).
It’s becoming increasingly clear to many that we are entering into a new phase of global evolution and planetary ascension – based on the placement of the Earth’s position in the galaxy. It’s an understatement to say that we are in for quite a few changes in the months ahead. I strongly urge readers who find these words “suspect” to embark on their own lines of personal research into the events I’ve described and to resist a knee-jerk response based on the “little green men from Mars” scenario that we’ve been fed over the last 100 years. We needn’t fear the prospect of contact with members of our galactic family that will inevitably ensue in the not so distant future. We have every reason to usher in this new age with great anticipation and peaceful hospitality – as indeed – we have friends in very high places.
