Ancient Aliens is taking the week off for the holiday, and I spent part of this week at work finalizing a project, which will be announced next week. I am taking the next few days off to enjoy the last week of my son's summer vacation before I get back to the grind next week. In the meantime, enjoy George Knapp's bizarre speculation about the space aliens' evil agenda and its connection to conservative efforts to promote Intelligent Design, from yesterday's Joe Rogan Experience. It doesn't tell you much about aliens but tells you a lot about the mindset of the people pushing bizarre claims about space aliens.
What could be so terrible that they can't tell us about it? Let's say, these aliens, wherever they're from, made us, that we're a genetic experiment. That they created our religions, our religious figures. That we are an agricultural product that somehow they harvest us. That our time is limited, that once the experiment is over, poof, we go away. […] Be careful what you wish for because you might find out that the intelligent designer isn't God that you're thinking of, it might be some alien science project or something like that. You can imagine a lot of different things that would be really disturbing to people to come out.
