McDonald discussed some possible causes of the developmental disorder, including changes made to the human genome by electromagnetic radiation. His most shocking theory, however, attributes the rise of a future race of sterile 'Gray' aliens to the apparent present-day increase in autism in human beings. He also states that the behavior of the aliens is very simaliar to autistic people and how they do not express emotion and work together in a "hive" like setting. He claims that the aliens are actualy future autistic people who need to abduct people for reproductive material in an attempt to breed back the ability to feel emotion. Anyway, just another "out there" autism theory that I thought people might get a few good laughs from.


I always knew I was different. :roll:

I'm not surprised by this theory. Usually we look at theories and decide if its easy to follow, or just debunk so we could move on to the next one.

But I do find it peculiar that "work together in a 'hive' like setting" is claimed to be an an ASD trait, when I thought that was what NTs did :?


They refer to Asian corporate culture as 'hive' like. And then link it with how autistic people work together. Alto they do not really explain it. And is more based on the idea that some people in the occident have about Asian cultures being autistic, while they actually are more conformist.



Damn, I'm a Japanese alien?

Hmmm .... I always thought my dad looked a little strange......

LOL!

I guess I'm going to have to invite Great Uncle Jayrod and Auntie E.B. to the family reunion afterall. What kind of pie do you think aliens like? :lol:

Clearly? being nuerotypical in the earth context isn't exactly advanced. NTs demonstrate (time and time again) fairly primitive throw back behavior/conduct.

Austistic individuals are often (not always) quite logical and an advanced population of beings with autistic brains may well act like Grays (in my view). Of course this is all hypothetical.


Who says aliens are advanced? Maybe they've devolved to some sort of idiocracy, but still have some leftover gadgets lying around. Which they use to go on anal probing safaris, because this amuses their tiny brains.


It could very well be that the more intelligent of the aliens know not to deal with Earth, and thus they leave it for the alien equivalent of "frat boys" to toy around with? :lol:


Reminds me of the Bill Hicks skit about hillbilly aliens and how maybe these aren't "inteligent" beings. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1MuT_KSOo4

Hmmm.... and what a special treat that is!

There are multiple witness sightings of UFOs landing with gray aliens in different parts of the world. In a court of law this would be undeniable proof of an anomalous event. The problem is that our scientists/government seem to disqualify the validity of the events due to our heavy reliance on rational science that is unable (and perhaps unwilling) to cross the paradigm beyond sensory input.

I've had people ask if I was entirely human... where I was created, etc. in this vein. I have such a large cluster of "peculiar" qualities, that in sum I am a very unnatural seeming human being. I think I am just different enough to fall into the uncanny valley, and am therefore unsettling or unnerving to most people.

Alien heritage… Or eventual forefather to a future subspecies of time travelers though? That seems unlikely.

More likely is that I am just a statistical outlier of expression of genetic diversity within our species, homo sapiens. So, there’s that.

I know, I know… that is just such a boring explanation! Where is the flair? Oh, right… you know, another solid explanation isn’t that we autistics are aliens in disguise… but that we are in fact descendants of the Nephilim… We have the blood of angels in our veins, duh.

autistic people will dominate this planet

Hierarchy is the social version of systemization, an autistic behavior.
I beg to differ. I don't think hierarchy is the natural autistic social structure. Specialization is. In a society of specialists, people do what they do best; each person contributes his talents to every other person, while receiving the products of others' talents. Someone who is good at socializing--a charismatic NT, though not necessarily an extroverted one--would be the best leader, all else being equal. However, that person would also have to be good at turning over specialized work to the people who are good at it; that is, he'd have to know how to take advice and delegate authority. And some of the people he'd have to depend on would be specialists in non-social fields, people who might very well be autistic. In the ideal world, the leader's role would be considered to be a specialist's position like any other, given to a person who is good at organizing other people's efforts and facilitating communication between different groups. It might be a position of high prestige, but it would not be considered to be at the top of a hierarchy, because just like the specialist engineer who builds bridges doesn't have the skills to become the leader of a community, that leader also doesn't have the skills necessary to build bridges. (Not that there aren't autistics who are specialized in things like public speaking and advocacy.)

The obvious exception here would be a group made up entirely of autistics, such as an autistic self-advocacy group. That, of course, would have to have an autistic leader, because if he isn't part of a group he represents, that person can never really be the ideal representative.

We are all aliens anyway, since the scientific view is that life on Earth began when an asteroid crashed into Earth and deposited water (ice) and elements necessary to create the first life.

And since all planets and other bodies in the cosmos were created from the big bang and the elements of the universe, we are all stardust.

Perhaps people on the spectrum just got the best of those elements :wink: .

I'm NOT an alien. I am a human being. I find it offensive when people say that, just because I'm diagnosed with a mild case of AS that only leaves me with a few minor differences from the general population, social awkwardness, anxieties, and prone to obsess over silly things. How does that make me an alien? I have thoughts and feelings just like every other normal person on this Earth.

Electromagnetic radiation and genetics don't work like that. This is all quackery. Done.

X-rays are electromagnetic, so ... maybe.

He's been watching too many reruns of Stargate: SG1.

I think we're getting tired of clown acts around here.

If I had to imagine an advanced alien species, I somehow tend to think of them as rational, analytical and capable of independent thought rather than hyperconforming group-thinking sheeple busy living in the socially construced illusions, mundane social status struggles and a myriad of tribalistic cultural assumptions about race, gender, power, and privilege perpetuating the cycle of wars, environmental catastrophes, and poverty.

Ironically, Neurotypicality has so far been an evolutionary advantage but prevents the society from advancing to a more complex level.

Evolution, you're retarded.

No. It would be a suggestion of something worth investigating, but without physical evidence, a case is unlikely to go to trial.

No. The real problem is that every crackpot with an Internet connection seems to place more importance on mere belief than on physical evidence.

Belief proves nothing.

Irrelevant conclusion.

Since life itself originated on Earth, that alone make us un-alien, regardless of where the ingredients came from. What you said is like claiming that a cake was not home-made just because the ingredients were bought at a store.

Thank you, Dr. Sagan.
