The Crazy Planet of Baboons: Planet Earth
An Extra Terrestrial Spaceship, after traveling trillions of kilometers, at close to the speed of light, had finally entered into the Earth’s orbit in October of the year 2012. The spaceship was on a scouting mission from the planet Astoria of the Andromeda Galaxy, the sister Galaxy of the Milky Way. The crew of the spaceship, comprised mostly of highly trained scientists and data analysts, had the task to record all the major events and incidents occurring on planet Earth, analyze them, and prepare an assessment of the level of intellect and logical reasoning capabilities of the Earthlings. Based on the assessment report, a decision would be made whether scientific help – that could advance the Earthlings centuries ahead, should be afforded.
The Astorian Spaceship, undetected and invisible to the people of Earth, stayed in Earth’s orbit – recording all the major events and happenings on the planet, until December of the year 2015. At that time, cutting short their scheduled stay, the spaceship commander decided to depart for the home planet.
Though, the planet Astoria was a thousand years ahead in scientific advancements – Earth dwellers, comparatively speaking, were still living in the stone-age. But, still, the Earthlings had managed to confuse the spaceship staff so much that they were losing their own sanity – they were utterly flabbergasted by the behavior of the Earthlings.
They couldn’t believe what they had witnessed on Earth over their fourteen years of stay. They had been to the Apes Planet on a similar mission, and were able to compile a positive assessment report leading to the genetic advancement of the apes population into ‘humans’ – in just two generation. They were since then advancing in the field of science and technology like all the other humans in the galactic universe.
But, the study of the Earthlings, who had already genetically evolved to the level of humans, had them puzzled; the Earthlings were showing all the signs of reverting back from their human state to the apes state and beyond. If it goes that way, it would be the first one in the history of the entire Universe.
Though, the entire record and analysis of the Earthlings had been transmitted to the Astorian Executive Command, The scientists on board the Spaceship wanted to rush back to their Andromeda Galaxy to participate in the research work to, somehow, find a cure for the Earthlings’ genetic degeneration.
The Astorian Public Council, the Executive Body of the people of the planetary system, were watching the excerpts of the records of activities of the Earthlings in disbelief and amazement.
The Spaceship chief scientist was too polite, these were not the acts and behavior of the “Ape Species”, these were the traits of the “Baboon Species”.
How it could have been possible? They were intrigued.
The Event Log & Comments Relayed From the Spaceship
Spaceship’s Commander’s Insert: Our ‘Scout Probe’ has zoomed into the most technologically advanced section of Earth and is encompassing the entire region. Observations Excerpts follow:
Strange occurrences are being continuously monitored: Earthlings were observed planting Explosives and Nuclear Devices at the foundation of a tall and sturdy structure in one of the Earthlings’ highest concentration areas. Communication intercepts connected the planters with the associates of the “squirrel head”. The structure was blown up, and squirrel head’s associates were found using the holographic images to show that their primitive flying machines did hit the tall structures.
Why? We were at loss.
Spaceship Probe ran scan on The Book these crazy Suicide Bombing Earthlings follow. It puzzles us even more – Their book declares the suicide, under any pretext, an “unforgivable sin” – Punishment: “Eternal Hell Fire”!
Aren’t these suicide bombers the “Religious Fanatics”? We are at Loss!
Requested immediate return. . . Permission granted.
Lucky for the planet Earth and its Earthlings, Astoria Command Council voted to accept the third option.
