I've often said that I can feel something coming, some type of "event" that will scare the hell out of everyone - so much so that it will temporarily disrupt the flow of goods & services. I believe this event will be a global occurrence, and I suspect that much of the present unrest in the world is because those in other countries can feel it approaching - and are showing that fear through violence. From ISIS to Iran, from Putin to Kim Jong Un...I suspect that even China's military buildup are all symptoms of a shared global worry. Every culture reacts to fear differently, and sadly, many lash out with aggression because it's all they know. And when this event happens, it will be up to the calm, steady hand of powers like the US to lead by example into a brave new world of understanding - on the subject that John Podesta has been trying to disclose sine the Clinton administration.
All jokes aside, I mention this episode because I genuinely believe in the idea that humanity was seeded on Earth from an alien race. Yes, I know, that's a statement that's easy to ridicule...because let's face it: the Catholic idea of Creation makes sooooooooooooo much more sense. The truth is that nobody knows where we came from - and that includes respected scientists who claim we evolved from slurry. Whether you're Professor Michio Kaku or Jim Bakker hawking Rapture-ravoli, you ... just ... don't ... know. At least not for sure. And I really believe that evolution is as likely as creation, as the idea that man evolved in just 200,000 years is about as realistic as walking around commando in the garden of Adam & Eve. What makes far more sense - and let me duck as Catholic nuns throw their rosaries & shoes at me - is the idea that mankind was brought here from a far more established world. I believe our ancestors were released on Earth, in the same way we release animals into the wild. We tag them, we watch their progress, and we hope to find a way to enjoy their lives. And maybe if we're lucky, those animals will return to us later, all grown up, like a collie in a Disney movie.
Let's find someone else to serve mankind.
