Are the aliens in the room with us right now?
I get it. It's an infinite universe with trillions of stars and planets.
I get it. It's an infinite universe with trillions of stars and planets. We can't be the only ones who evolved to need How I Met Your Mother playing in the background to cum. It's statistically impossible that we're alone in the universe. Fine.
But that doesn't mean this alien shit on the news has merit. It doesn't. It's a spectacle. It feels like a thing because congresspeople are asking serious-sounding questions, and CNN is reporting on it. But it's not real. I'm sorry. I understand if you won't invite me to your next party.
First, the coy nature of David Grusch and the congressional hearing isn't because The Pentagon has Grusch's hands tied. You can't just spill top-secret information like a parent spelling out the word "ice cream" in front of a child.
From The Guardian:
…Grusch followed Pentagon protocol in publishing this information, meaning that the Department of Defence approved the information he would pass on to the press, which is something the department only does if the information is not classified. If Grusch is telling the truth, surely this information would be classified, Eghigian says, and the department would not have allowed him to go on the record.
Next, pay attention to the viral sound bite— the one where Grusch appears to confirm under oath that the US has alien bodies.
Rep. Nancy Mace: If you believe we have crashed craft, as stated earlier, do you believe we have the bodies of the pilots who piloted this craft?
Okay, so she asked, very specifically, about the pilots.
Grusch: As I stated publicly already in my NewsNation interview, biologics came with some of these recoveries, yeah.
Grusch's response does not address Rep. Mace's question. Grusch simply states that biologics were recovered from the crash. That is different than confirming biologics from entities capable of flying spacecraft. The term biologics alone could be anything. (Nice plug of your blog, btw, Grusch.)
Rep. Nancy Mace: Were they human or non-human biologics?
So, the next thing Grusch says sounds like he's confirming aliens because it appears they're still talking about the pilots.
Grusch: Non-human, and that was the assessment of people with direct knowledge on the program I talked to.
They structured the questions and answers to make you think Grusch is talking about non-human pilots the whole time. When in fact, he shifted from the question and spoke about the much more broad term "recoveries." They also use the word "non-human" instead of "alien," meaning the remains could be any other animal from around the crash site. We don't consider that framing because we still think they're talking about pilots. WHICH THEY ARE NOT.
I hate that I feel like the crazy one here.
Finally, David Grusch is not testifying under oath that we have aliens. He's sharing (under oath) what someone else shared with him. Do you see the difference? It's hard for Grusch to perjure himself here because he's literally just gossiping; he's spilling science fiction tea. It's all secondhand information.
Listen, it would be great if aliens were amongst us because suddenly, our earthly problems feel smaller. Maybe these intelligent lifeforms could even help us. They could solve climate change, poverty, and fascism. Perhaps those little green, gender-non-conforming friends could stop our government from throwing starving migrants into rivers.
So why the circus? Why keep us distracted? Who knows. It could be a myriad of reasons. The earth is literally on fire, for one. And we’re starting to wonder who lit the match.
We're all just trying to survive this world; that effort is consuming. We have a finite space in our brains for other problems, big and small. So, we hope what our leaders present to us in passing is in good faith. But as it turns out, surface-level understanding of issues often betrays us. And that has nothing to do with intelligence. People are just busy living their lives in this fucked up world.
Opportunists will always be there to opportune, and politicians love a good soundbite.
