If an alien race were to give the human race an award...
    #2593280 - 04/23/04 01:50 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

... an award for our greatest attribute. What do you think it would be? It doesn't neccessarily have to be our best/most righteuous attribute (so violence, hate, etc. is included!)

An attribute that has the greatest affect, power, usability, etc.

I would vote for our ability to adapt. If there was a WW3, every major city in the world destoryed, the remaining would be able to adapt efficiently enough to continute on. Hell, the only reason we're still here today is because we adapt.

Back in the caveman days -- we found that we couldn't kill deer because they were too fast. So we adapted. We sharpened sticks, hunted in packs, ambushed, etc.

Of course, adaptation is a general term that encompasses many attributes I suppose. Now that I think about it, you can dwindle it down to one main attribute -- our ability to reason. It is the only thing that seperates us from every living thing on earth.

...it'd be for the "Most Gullible" in the entire universe.



You believe in aliens? Sucker!

... well there has got to be a reason as to why I once woke up with three little holes in the back of my neck.




But anyways -- let's all just pretend that there is an alien race that dedicates their existance to giving out awards to inferior species.

Couldn't be bugs; must be aliens!

Sclorch's award confirmed.

if your calling them advanced and we humans inferior then....
i would say they'd just keep on experimenting with us without regard to rights!:lol:
i mean really what kind of inferior people, or things for that matter, get rewards.

oook.. rip on the poster, not contribute to thread... super duper

Anyways, since I can hypothetically assume something for the sake of a thread, I would say we would get the award for Conscious Destroyers. We don't blow up planets or anything, but we co-exist love with hate, creation with destruction, peace with war.

damn, Adaptation was a good one.

we wouldnt be so inferior if we would just wake up :laugh:

but yeah, we'd get the award for War, violence, hate, mass destruction, we act like there is no other way to solve things.....really pathetic i think.

i don't know if we'd get an award for that.
have you ever seen "war of the worlds" or the preview to "the day after tomarrow." i think nature and alien races have us beat on both counts!:lol:

our porn. truely we as a species have taken creativity and novelty almost to the limits of possible expression.

they need to start giving porn 30 million dollar budgets and we'll finally have something that we as a species can say we have truely perfected.

SExuality has become corrupted. Why would be we get an award for it?

Sex has the ability to shift our consciousness, create life, heal us emotionally, and do all sorts of amazing things, its one of the greatest tools we have.


Instead, we use it to go to sleep at night. I don't think sex and porn would qualify as one of our greatest achievements.




I would have to say, our creativity, our imagination.

I think we'd receive the "Hypocritical Award."

One thing nature and aliens (from the ones I've talked to  :shocked:) don't possess that we do is the ability to condemn actions and then turn around and do it. Religion condemns violence and hate and causes violence and hate, governments do the same, and people just close their eyes to their own hypocrosy

An award? Hmm...it's hard to say because there aren't any other runners to compare us against. Maybe we'd get an award for being the cutest species?

Think about it...ever seen Alien, Predator, or Mars Attacks? Ugh...

Yeah, yeah I know "beauty is in the eye of the beholder." But aren't we the ones being abducted and sexually fondled with butt probes? Perverts...

I think dolphins are cuter than humans.

Not to mention I hear they're good in the sack too. Not unknown for humans to mate with their soft spongy little organs
