Reverse humanism

You know, it is interesting to watch these really silly documentaries called Ancient Aliens. What strikes me again and again is that these alien believers just don’t believe that human beings could have created all these wonderful, amazing, unbelievable civilizations without someone else telling them how.

I just think this is really silly. It seems a kind of reverse humanism, which believes that humans are much less capable of coming up with original ideas on their own.

While I don’t think humans are capable of all things, I do think we are perfectly capable of creating civilizations with amazing buildings and art. These documentaries are entertaining, but unconvincing.
