In my view this riddle makes a case that there is no god.
Wrong ballpark. "God" aint going to "come down" and engagae in silly human logic.
"He" is like a parent with outstretched arms waiting for us to get beyond our fear and reach back out to "Him".
We need to show the aliens that we are ready for them.
If we cant even get along wih our own neighbours, tolerate other religons, find other races "different" to us ,(despite the similarities), imagine how we would react if we saw a real alien?
Which brings me to one of my fave paradoxes,ie. that despite all of us being unique(even identical twins), we are all the same essentially. Most importantly we all have the bhuddaseed within us, which is the potential to unlock our minds and ascend back Home🙂
