Recently I have noticed something.
I've seen Christians completely shut out scientific theories in sheer stubbornness before. And I'm sure many others have too. However I've also seen the open-minded ones consider... consider is the key word.
BUT... I have NEVER in my life heard of somebody who did not immediately laugh at the theory of human alien interaction. It is like stubbornness multiplied by infinity. I do know there are some out there who actually think about it, but I'm focusing this post on the ridiculous reactions you can get from stating such a theory.
I really don't understand why these theories of human alien interaction are so ridiculously blown out of proportion by non-believers, and I'm serious about not knowing. Could it because it only takes place in the movies? or because the person is truthfully scared of such an idea? or maybe they simply want to have something to make fun of. I don't know. I hope I have proven my point but at the same time I feel like I can't even begin to explain how stupid ridiculous it is for people to laugh before even comprehending.
I'm still hoping that you're trolling, but here it goes. This is mostly repeating what has been said already, but here's everything in one, easy to read (ok, maybe not that easy) post!
Are there any proofs of extra-terrestrial interaction with the Earth? No, there's none : hearsay from a few potentially misguided individuals does not constitute a proof in science. Those people cannot re-enact what happened to them for the whole world to see, therefore believing them without knowing if those things really happened or not is in the realm of faith. Faith has no place in science since science is based first and foremost on firsthand experience (even theoretical physic).
If it can be proven that extra-terrestrial being do indeed exist (somewhat likely), and that they have had some contact with the earth (very unlikely), this discussion would be perhaps be more valid. then, blaming Norwegian metal on an extra-terrestrial cause is pure nonsense. Why would alien choose this race instead of any other? Why Metal and not a super-powerful LASER to kill all the worthless human being in the world? There’s no answer for those questions because the premise of this problem is stupid. Norwegian metal is also not exactly that unique : there were a few other black metal scene that started around the same time, and Hellhammer was definitely not Scandinavian.
Wouldn't it be more logical to base the creation of Scandinavian Metal on the atmosphere that existed in Norway in the early 90s? When you’ve got a bunch of disillusioned teenagers full of romantic ideals that live in a society that held the oppressors (Christianity) higher than their proud but oppressed ancestors, there’s bound to be something that comes out from this situation. In that case it was Black Metal, in Quebec when the society as a whole got fed up with Catholicism, we had the "Revolution tranquille" that produced something new out of the old system. This is just a case of good old "Occam's Razor" : the simpler explanation is often the most accurate. The whole world would be much better off if everyone understood it properly.
And just stop using M-Theory/String theory to give strength to your divagations, you make way too many potentially wrong assumption to use it to explain your argument. First : M-Theory is not proven. All there is behind it is a few beautiful mathematical equations that seem to describe the world. While there might be some circumstantial evidence that will support it soon (LHC early 2008), it is highly misguided to base a theory about the creation of metal (or a theory on the possibility of extraterrestrial interaction with the earth) on the assumption that it is true. Second : if the many world hypothesis is indeed right, there's no theory right now in physic that would allow one to go from one "world" to another ( if the energy released when two brane collide is so high that it is enough to start a “big bang”, I doubt it would be possible to move from one brane to another). Therefore using M-Theory to explain that it is probable for alien to have interacted with the human society is stupid.
So you've got all this thread based on sketchy interpretations of a theory that no one here really understands (in fact, even theoretical physicists don’t understand it fully) and on a deep misunderstanding of science as a whole (Occam's razor should be the first thing everyone learns about science in school). So, are we really supposed to believe that it is probable that black metal was created by a bunch of aliens? Are we really supposed to believe it is probable that aliens have interacted with the earth because other universes could exist? This is complete and utter nonsense.
And seriously, learning about Occam's Razor
and understanding it should be mandatory for everyone. It is one of the most important concept that underlies all science, and most of the universe.
