Are Earthlings an ‘Invasive Species’ Soon to be Exterminated?

An important new study in the realm of astrophysics has revealed that up to 40 percent of red dwarfs (a type of star or “sun”) may harbor a large Earth-like planet orbiting at just the right distance to support life as we know it. The study was led by Dr Xavier Bonfils of the Grenoble University in France.

Why is this a big deal? Because the number of stars in our own galaxy, the Milky Way, is believed to contain from 200 to 400 billion stars. Each of those stars is a “sun” to its local solar system, and an estimated 70% to 90% of those stars are red dwarfs. (See sources below.)

Let’s do the math on this, using the most conservative numbers: 200 billion stars in the Milky Way, 70% of them are red dwarfs, and 40% of those contain an Earth-like planet orbiting within the habitable zone. That number comes to 56 billion planets that may harbor life in our own galaxy alone! (Not to even mention all the other billions of galaxies which are much farther away.)

Some of those potentially life-harboring planets are practically next-door neighbors in a galactic sense: As many as 100 such planets may exist within just 30 light years of Earth.

Again, why does this matter? Because the Milky Way is 13.2 billion years old (or so, according to estimates). While the rise of human civilization and modern technology has occurred in just the last few thousand years, that same epoch of scientific advancement could have taken place on other planets millions of years ago.

This could mean that other living beings in our own Milky Way are quite literally millions of years ahead of us in technology, consciousness, philosophy and other areas of knowledge and understanding.

We Earthlings are but ignorant infants compared to something like that. Here we are on Earth, still shooting lead bullets at each other over fossil oil reserves and mined metals. More advanced civilizations have undoubtedly unlocked secrets of free energy, elemental transmutation, faster-than-light travel, bioenergy, mind-matter interactions, the nature of consciousness and much more. They must be laughing at us right now, it would seem.

There is almost certainly other intelligent life in our galaxy
What’s important to realize here is that the chance that far more advanced civilizations exist in our Milky Way is as close to 100 percent as humanly imaginable. Conversely, the idea that Earth is the only civilization in the entire Milky Way where intelligent life exists is flat-out absurd and nonsensical.

We already know, for example, that the seeds of life — DNA — quite easily survive rides on meteorites which are dispersed around the galaxy on a regular basis. The very first seeds of DNA might have arrived on Earth from precisely such an intragalactic “seeding” event.

As this is leading into a discussion about the origins of life, Creation, intelligent design and Darwinism, I have placed such a discussion at the end of this article. The upshot of that discussion is that it is my belief our entire universe (starting from the Big Bang itself) only exists because of an intelligence — a Creator — which seeded not just our own universe, but the entire multiverse. See the bottom of this article for that discussion and a short recommended reading list.

Getting back to the question of intelligent life beyond Earth, given that an estimated 56 billion life-supporting planets may exist in our own galaxy, it’s a slam dunk to acknowledge that there must be a very, very large number of civilizations that have been around far longer than our own. As in millions of years longer. That’s a lot of time to acquire knowledge, develop technology, expand consciousness and even develop faster-than-light travel so that visitation of other worlds becomes as easy as you or I driving down to the corner grocery store.

Again, why does any of this matter? Because it means our own planet is almost certainly being routinely monitored by non-Earth societies. If they have the technology to travel faster than light, it seems, they would easily have the technology to avoid being easily spotted by us.

In fact, it seems logical to realize there may be hundreds, thousands or even millions of such advanced societies that are keeping an eye on Earth right now.

Why are we not already widely aware of non-Earth civilizations and beings?

If that’s true, then it raises this question: Why haven’t they intervened with Earth in a substantial way? Or have they already? There is convincing evidence of ancient civilizations across our planet, some of which may have been visited by advanced races of beings and shown some breakthrough technology. How were the Pyramids built, for example? There are even more convincing artifacts in Bolivia and throughout South America. Early human history, including Biblical history, is absolutely full of accounts of encounters with non-Earth beings. “Ancient astronauts” is a term worth Googling.

So what are intelligent beings in the galaxy doing with Earth, anyway? Here are some of my own thoughts and theories on what might be happening:

Seven theories behind the lack of present-day “contact”

• Theory #1 – Earth has been declared a “non-intervention” zone and all non-Earth civilizations have agreed to stay “hands off” while simply observing our planet and our species. This would, of course, imply some sort of galactic governing body, which is a fascinating subject all by itself.

• Theory #2 – There are no advanced aliens in the galaxy. We are the only intelligent life in the universe. God help us if this turns out to be true, as there will be nothing to stop human-led corporations from pillaging and destroying entire worlds if inexpensive space travel technology can be developed. Imagine Jupiter renamed “Planet Microsoft, Inc.” Technology without ethics is extremely dangerous.

• Theory #3 – There are aliens, but they just haven’t noticed us yet. Maybe they only get around to checking each life-supporting planet every 50,000 years or so, and since our entire civilization is only about 10,000 years old (or so), we haven’t yet showed up on their radar. Our use of nuclear weapons — a series of events easily visible from space — has only taken place in the last 75 years or so. The light from such events has only begun to reach many advanced civilizations that might be gearing up to take action against Earth as a result.

• Theory #4 – Our own present-day human species was created by non-Earth beings genetically seeding or altering native primates in order to create a more intelligent race for some purpose that we don’t yet know about. (A slave race of obedient workers, perhaps? That trait seems to have been made quite prominent among present-day humans…)

• Theory # 5 – Extraterrestrials know all about us, but they’re waiting to see if we will destroy ourselves first. If we somehow get through the next couple of hundred years without decimating our own planet, then perhaps they will make contact. This is a question of species maturity — are human beings mature enough to even bother being contacted? Or are we still just fair-skinned apes who beat each other over the heads with sticks and rocks while poisoning our own planet and destroying life? Earth’s “advanced weapons” are a joke in a galactic sense, and our focus on weapons and war only proves how stupid we are when it comes to wisdom and maturity.

• Theory #6 – Extraterrestrials are already here, and they’re already taking over with some sort of nefarious infiltration agenda. Remember the “V” television series? Yeah, lizard people and all that… The “David Icke theory.”

• Theory #7 – Earth has already been claimed as “property” by one of the non-Earth races, and they will soon come to the planet to claim its resources. If you think about it, if earthlings had the technology of faster-than-light space travel, wouldn’t we run around the Milky Way staking claim to all the valuable planets we could find? And the most valuable planets of all, it seems, would be water planets, as water is really the “gold” of life (as we know it) in the galaxy. A big blue planet like Earth would look like a valuable gem floating in a sea of mostly inhabitable rocks. Every advanced civilization in the universe would want to “own” Earth if, indeed, ownership was still one of their functioning tendencies.

Humans are an infant species that lacks wisdom and is steeped in the destruction of life

Of all these theories, I personally believe #5 is the most likely to be real. Sadly, human beings remain an infant species — steeped in selfish motivations and the destruction of our own planet. An advanced non-Earth species must look upon all our GMOs, pesticides, nuclear weapons testing, HAARP, fluoride poisoning and other bizarre “scientific” agendas with total disgust. “Wow,” the aliens might say. “These Earthlings are really, really destructive. Let’s make sure they don’t discover space travel anytime soon.”

“Yeah,” says another alien. “And I’m taking bets with 2-to-1 odds on whether they just destroy their own civilization within the next 100 sun orbits.”

It is amusing, of course, to hear arrogant scientists on Earth talk of themselves as geniuses. They’re still stuck in the physical reality model of the universe, for one thing, and haven’t even yet acknowledged the existence of biofields or even consciousness. It was physicist Stephen Hawking, again, who openly stated in his recent book, “The Grand Design” that humans are nothing more than biological robots who have no consciousness and no free will:

“It is hard to imagine how free will can operate if our behavior is determined by physical law, so it seems that we are no more than biological machines and that free will is just an illusion,” he says.

Similarly, DNA discoverer Francis Crick also believes humans are little more than biochemical machines, utterly lacking consciousness or free will:

“You, your joys and sorrows, your memories and your ambitions, your sense of personal identity and free will, are in fact no more than the behavior of a vast assembly of nerve cells and their associated molecules,”, Crick said in his book The Astonishing Hypothesis.”

These are signs of an infant, ignorant species. On a galactic scale, Earthlings are little more than clever apes who have somehow scraped themselves out of the dirt and figured out a few things about combustion engines and the electromagnetic spectrum. Yeah, we’ve built nuclear weapons — which are no doubt easily viewable from distant worlds, as their testing has gone on far longer than required for light to reach other advanced civilizations in our Milky Way — but then we’ve used those weapons to do nothing useful other than threaten our own brothers and sisters with destruction. Self-genocide. From the point of view of extraterrestrials, it just looks like runaway idiocy.

Again, these are signs of an ignorant, infantile species that has barely learned how to stand up and walk, much less actually contribute something to the universe at large. In fact, the only material thing Earth has contributed to the galaxy is flinging space junk around our own planet, essentially using space as a convenient dumping ground. That’s not exactly the kind of behavior that gets you invited to the neighbor’s dinner party, you know what I mean?
