All GLPers should read Childhood's End by Arthur C. Clark
I just got done reading it...such a great work of science fiction.

Basically what happens is WW3 is about to break out on earth, aliens show up, but stay hovering in their ships for 50 years. During that time they bring world peace, eliminate poverty and sickness, and provide education for everyone on the planet.

They then show themselves after the 50 years now that humanity has gotten used to the idea of aliens being in the world. Their appearance is quite upsetting to people, but you'll have to read it to figure out why.

It was written in 1953, but a lot of the themes are consistent with the 2012 and new age philosophies of ascension, and a cosmic mind.

It gets much more interesting! It's also a very short book and I read it in just a few hours. I highly recommend it.

I've read it.

You write as if the 'peace and prosperity' thing brought by the aliens was a good thing. It wasn't. It was enslavement!

Apparently you missed the true significance of their appearance...

These aliens seemed friendly, but were actually UP TO NO GOOD. Humanity was TRICKED by them before, so they had to hide their appearance so they wouldn't be recognized this time around.

It's a 'Steven King' kind of book, first lulling you into safety, then hitting you with a sledge hammer of creepy.

Recommended read tho.

Clarke is always good; i prefer his short stories to his novels though

Comments/Spoilers:

Why do you blame the aliens? The change in the children went on without their influence or their human parents. It seemed to be entirely orchestrated by the creator. That was the creepiest change of all. The ending made me cry.

Re: All GLPers should read Childhood's End by Arthur C. Clark
sure, good book...

...if you believe that aliens are Demons described in his book as looking like the devil himself, horns, forked tongue, arrowed tipped tail and all!

propaganda for the lizzards is what that book was all about...

as well as

V (80's tv show)
Enemy mine
land of the lost

I never said whether it was a good thing or not.

It depends on your point of view. There are a lot of people that would choose peace and prosperity over freedom.

Its a work of fiction. How can something meant to be sicfi/fantasy be propaganda? I feel bad for you if you think everything described in these books is based on reality...

if you paid attention to the book the aliens that came to earth to facilitate the transformation were essentially enslaved by the collective humanity joined. not their fault

Yep, very true. It makes you think about the nature of "god" and whether or not we are all slaves to him/her/it.

Re: All GLPers should read Childhood's End by Arthur C. Clark
Yep, Arthur C Clark knows all about Childrens' Ends. Makes alot of sense when you look at it all through the demon/alien/satanic/channelling/crowley prism...

Not that i'm convinced by either side at this stage but goddammn... there's alot of people that like to stick their thing up a young dudes hole. Seriously, where the f*ck does that urge come from?

The supernatural demonic explanation seems more logical than any evolutionary/natural reasons.
