Mad Apologetics? (AnswersinGenesis....and Beyond!)
This touches on several beliefs that I have. one of them is that humanity couldn't healthily deal with a creator deity appearing just to say "hi". Another, perhaps similar to the previous, is that humanity couldn't deal with aliens landing on the WhiteHouse lawn; we're tear them and ourselves apart.
In general, I've always felt that if you're going to contact and intelligent species, you need to be super, super careful. To be honest, it's a bit too "convenient", in that we haven't seen God make himself known unambiguously; we haven't had little green men on the nightly news.
Anyhoo, I'm not into conspiracy theories. I'm a skeptic, and that prevents me from buying into ideas even if I like them.
