There are a number of theories that puport aliens visited humans at the dawn of civilisation based on tribal traditions of "sky people" or "star people" riding chariots of fire or flying serpents/dragons...all taught man about knowledge (in the bible the serpent

Homo Sapiens were unable to evolve for 100,000 years and then by sheer accident around 5000 years ago agriculture, science/techonology, warfare, buildings appeared. Archaeologists are still in the dark how this all happened. Some people claim aliens came down and gave us all a "kick start".

The biblical serpent in the Garden of Eden was praised and thanked for bringing knowledge (gnosis) to Adam and Eve and thereby freeing them from ignorance. Remarkably many cultures believe in the association between the serpent and knowledge.

That's like complaining that the artwork of Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo only depicts Italians.

The plaque on the Pioneer was supposed to represent "humanity", not some idealised artistic expression

The relevant verse...

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it
'Cause he knows it's all worthwhile

"Was supposed to" indicates it failed to do so. Could you point out in what way it failed?

you could say the artist [linda salzman sagan] shifted the female's right leg to legitimately obscure that bit.

So...if they HAD tried to contact us then that would prove that they....DON'T...exist ?

Telephone solicitors call me all of the time. So that proves that telephone solicitors do NOT exist?

Makes sense to me! :lol:

Actually that was deliberate (according to the christian morality of the time) a man's penis could be displayed like a classic greek/roman statue but not a woman's vagina.

I think the laws of probability suggest this is more likely to be the case than not.

You don't actually see the "vagina," in reality.

What you see, actually, is the "vulva."
