So what do you think? Could there really be “For Real” Alien Invaders? What might “aren’t quite what you think” mean?
Well, the answer, as I see it anyway, will be in tomorrow’s comic strip. Until then, I’d like to sort of set the stage a little. Do human beings have any claim to this planet? Is it uniquely given to us? Or is it given to us and all living creatures on it, over it, under it equally?
The heavens are the Lord’s heavens, but the earth he has given to human beings. (NRSV)
Then God said, “Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the wild animals of the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.” Genesis 1:26 (NRSV)
This really does sort of rule out any kind of Alien Invaders that might be in some sort of hidden part of creation (like from beneath the earth’s surface) or mutations of creation (like giant tarantulas, or even…Godzilla).
And yet my conjecture is that there is a “For Real” Alien Invasion Attempt to take over our planet, enslave all humankind, force us all to act against God’s will, and obtain total control.
This Alien Invasion Attempt has been going on since mankind began, however you want to believe mankind began…direct intelligent creation, evolution, Garden of Eden, Amino Acid Soup, whatever…that debate is only obscuring the real truth.
The real truth is there’s a doomed Alien Invasion Attempt going on right now!
One final clue to where this is leading…these Alien Invaders never have had and never will have a planet of their own! (At least as far as I can tell!)
Although this post uses a good deal of “movie hype” language, it’s truly intended just to get you to think, and perhaps think in a different way.
Until tomorrow, rest easy! I did say “DOOMED attempt,” didn’t I?!?
