My friend the stubborn Texas sasquatch has just made one of my points
for me.

Absolutely right, Dennis. I'll take you seriously, and agree

And, see...this is what I meant in an earlier post you ridiculed,
when I said that our culture is in a tizzy over possible alien
visits, and that not even UFO believers have faced the
implications of what they believe.

Everybody goes on living their lives, even though the aliens are
in a position to make drastic changes here. David Jacobs, on a
dark day, is one of the few researchers I know who feels the full
emotional thrust of this. For the rest of us, it's far too
unknown and intense.

I'm not saying we SHOULD turn our hearts and lives upside down,
because possibly we're in for a giant alien shock. Since we don't
know what's going to happen (assuming, of course, that it's all
real), going on with our daily routine is, for nearly everyone,
the only possible choice. There's even a possibility that nothing
would happen -- the aliens will leave, or just keep up their
present, comparatively low-level activity, leaving us mostly to
our own devices. And if that's the case, people who sell their
worldy goods and start prophecying from a mountain top will have
wasted their lives. We just don't know where we stand.

I'm glad, though, that you clarified this. If the aliens really
are doing all that Hopkins, et al, assert, then human history --
as we've known it up to now -- may soon be over. How we face the
implications of that is something I'm in no position to figure
out. But on some deep level, I imagine that everyone, on all
sides of the UFO fence, senses this possibility....and, very
likely, is quaking.
