I feel like we are the aliens visiting earth.

We're the only species that have to wipe our butts...

Look at how loooong it takes our babies to be self-sufficient. It takes them months to be able to walk. They can't forage for food or feed themselves for years.

Plants thrive and grow into beautiful things with only some combination of water, sun and dirt. A house cat can groom themselves without using their paws. Birds fly.

We are so inferior to everything else produced of/from/on this planet. So un-special. So foreign and useless.

The only creatures that make stuff up to justify our existence. The only ones to create gods. We're so unusual.

Or the other animals may all understand God exists and only humans are foolish and arrogant enough to think there is not.

The Buttwiper Paradox. It's been debated by alienologists for decades. The more a civilization self-discovers the need to wipe, the less special it thinks it is. But that is a contradiction - it just means we know we can be special. Puppi ergo sum.

That we know of. :scratch:
That we don't know about them, that it hasn't been communicated...

What would that say about humans. Because we sure as hell don't know how to be quiet and mind our business. Can't not say what we "know."

Once again, it would mean we're the only ones who can't follow suit. We can't operate like the others. Alien?

No... Any alien species/civilization/evolution with enough intelligence, ingenuity, and technology to make the trip ALL THE WAY here... Only to see how self-destructive, self-centered, and ridiculous we are... Would have already nuked us, taken our natural resources, and chirped out. So, not just no... No flippin' way.

even if 'life is rare', life existing on the one planet out of 660 Billion is more rare by orders of magnitude
i like the theory that life began on earth bc a meteor impact chipped off a piece of Mars and that landed on Earth and that began the whole thing - while a rare occurrence, that has to have happened millions to billions of times

completely tangential, i was rewatching the Expanse and read somewhere about what happens to the railgun 'bullets' (or torpedoes or whatever) that don't impact? they'll just keep going and going and going until they get pulled into a planet or star - it's a weird idea bullets just whizzing through space

We really need a magnitude of more funding for Nasa. We may find simple life in our own solar system. We have Venus with it's phosphine biomarkers in the atmosphere, and Europa's oceans to explore right in our own backyard.

Backing up your Europa comment I'm posting some links from when I went down a Europa rabbit hole one night:

Humans are also the only species on this planet capable of intelligent, sentient thought, in terms of having complex cognitive brain functions, billions of interconnecting neurons, sense of self-identity, self-awareness, or developing complex yet very different distinct cultures, languages, dialects, belief systems, forms of governments, forms of artistic cultural expression, myriad of different ideas, monuments (ziggaruts, pyramids, elaborate temples, churches, homes, villas, mansions, and palaces).

The game was stacked entirely in our favor from the time we evolved from Neanderthals to Cro-Magnums Homo Sapiens. After the last Ice Age ended 10,000 years ago and global temperatures started warming up a bit, that's when hunter-gatherer societies started settling down into small, agrarian-farming seditentary communities and after we'd hunted saber-tooth tigers, sloths, and Wooly Mammonths to extinction, these communities began to grow and develop into separate political systems/identities, became cities, then states, then empires with their own rapidly, evolving languages, cultures, creation myths, eytologies, governments, types of rulers, polytheistic and monotheistic religious worldviews with distinctive rituals, forms and practices.
