  1. Ima tell you how I'll react. Ima buy a can of crisco, some scented candles. Im going to invite that alien over for dinner and imma f**k it… then eat it.

    Don't much care what it looks like. Don't care how many limbs or eyes or holes it has, ima explore all of um… then eat it.

    That right there creature traveled millions of miles to explore and find other intelligent life and to its great fortune it found me.

    Im gonna f**k it… then eat it.

  2. Hahaha, the last couple of minutes were pretty funny, hearing Robby say that it was hard to believe that were alone, while he recently said just that.
    Kim calling him out on it, and then Ryan closing it off with "thanks folks", apparently he felt so awkward about the whole thing, that he switched to autopilot and said goodbye to some "guests" that he wanted to move away from.
    I was laughing through all of that, was a fun interaction.

    But yeah, i don't think we're alone, but i also don't think much of these UAP things, same for the Theologians being hired, it never hurts to talk about it and consider the possibility.
    But that Webb ad was waaayy too hyped up, i had no idea that they were hyping it up so much, i thought they were just being excited, but not like promising us all these wonderful things.
    Let's just hope it doesn't suffer a "Hubble" hiccup.

  3. The opposite is true in our imperialist empire. Big business (the military industrial complex, and Wall Street) in America still has the same mantra they had before WW1 that Marine Major General Smedley Butler reported on in his book, "War is a Racket", and President Eisenhower warned us about in his parting speech as leaving the Presidency— and that mantra is "War is good for business". They live by it, and they are really good at manipulating the American public into believing their lies to keep their warmongering insanity going for profit.

  4. Supposedly, the main fear the elites have about Alien visitors with their superior technologies is that it would put big business, and their control over Earthly populations out of business. Technologies that could replace hydrocarbons would be the end of the energy companies, and their power over governments, and populations. The energy companies as we all know fear alternative energy production as well. They have gone to great lengths to persuade populations that global warming is a hoax. But they will lose eventually, hopefully in time for the planets sake.

  5. Rising is turning into shoddy conspiracy rag. Now they're following misleading tabloid stories from Daily Mail? NASA didn't HIRE any theologians!

    In 2015, NASA provided $1.1 million in funding to the Center of Theological Inquiry that went towards a program to study the social impact of finding life beyond Earth. The organization sent out a press release at the time, calling it funding to “convene an interdisciplinary inquiry into the societal implications of the search for life in the universe.”
    Not all 24 participants were clergy either. The Center drew from theology, the humanities, and social sciences in their work to study the “societal implications” of “the origins, evolution, distribution, and future of life in the universe.” The funding lasted for two years.

    And though NASA certainly gave money toward the program, it didn’t go as far as to hire anyone from it. A spokesperson from NASA told the Associated Press that the researchers involved in the program were never directly employed by the space agency.
