Is There a Secret Behind All the Alien Movies Lately?

Let the conspiracy theories begin! I love aliens-invade-earth type of movies, and was delighted to see the “Cowboys and Aliens” preview during the Super Bowl. THAT should be fun. But wow, shouldn’t these movies start to take a number and get in line? It seems we’ve got movies about aliens invading the earth coming out of our pointy green ears. They’re everywhere! Run for your lives!

(Remember when we had two, count’em TWO, movies about giant asteroids smacking the earth? And that seemed like a lot at the time. My favorite of the two was the rather silly “Armageddon.” The other one, “Deep Impact,” concentrated so much on everyone’s feelings that by the end, I was rooting for the meteor…)

Is it because movies about aliens invading earth are just popular? An easy buck? (Admittedly, I’ll shell out a few bucks almost every time) Is it because there is a lack of better ideas? Perhaps. But those are boring reasons. What about the more sinister sounding theories? You know, some of these movies, like Skyline and Battle: Los Angeles, even look the same. Are these movies a result of the government preparing us for something? I can just picture Stephen Spielberg being rushed to an undisclosed location to review a top secret picture taken by the Voyager spacecraft…. Or are we producing these things like mad because of some larger, even spiritual reason?

ALIEN INVADERS WE’VE ALREADY SEEN

The Fourth Kind
District 9 -didn’t so much invade as crash land
The Day the Earth Stood Still – for the record, I like Keanu Reeves’ whole robotic shtick.
Knowing

Yes, Knowing. Okay, the aliens didn’t INVADE per se, but there was something going on with the movie “Knowing,” and I wonder if it might be at least one of the reasons so many of these types of movies are bombarding us. What was going on with “Knowing” was an alternate explanation to the origin of life on earth, namely, that aliens put us here in the first place.

A few years ago in the movie “Expelled,” Ben Stein managed to talk Richard Dawkins into a bit of a corner where Dawkins finally offered (perhaps only half-seriously) that it was possible aliens “seeded” life on this planet -aliens who themselves must have evolved from Darwinian means. The number of assumptions required to even consider that statement are ridiculous, but it is an idea which seems to have caught hold.

At least it caught hold with whoever made the movie “Knowing.” In that movie, a few aliens, who looked suspiciously like angels, rescued two children from the earth just before the planet was wiped out by a solar flare. (The solar flare idea wouldn’t really destroy the earth according to what I’ve read. I must admit, I was disappointed that an atheistic view of the universe didn’t at least have a scientifically plausible way to destroy the world… but I digress.)

The whole subliminal point of “Knowing” was that all of our religious beliefs don’t stem from a real God, but from aliens who put life on this planet. Thus, our ideas of angels really came from aliens. It didn’t stop there.

The angels/aliens swooped up the kids into a space ship that looked suspiciously like a religious painting of God which was shown earlier in the movie. They left the parents behind to die, and were taken to a new planet with a paradise-like scene, including a single tree in the middle. Hmmm…. referencing the tree in the book of Genesis perhaps? Afraid so.

So it’s not God, it’s aliens. Wooooooooo…oooooooooooo

It’s the sort of thing we do. We look for an alternate explanation for things, one that doesn’t include God. We have searched for that alternative in evolution, in naturalism, in uniformitarianism, in humanism, in materialism, and when the scientific evidence keeps pointing toward design and complexity that pushes the idea of random forces creating life to the limits of reason -we suggest aliens did it.

And with all of those movies, the idea of aliens doesn’t seem all that foreign anymore. A conspiracy? Perhaps a spiritual one.

Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed.
-II Peter 3:3-6

  1. They are not “purely fictional” anymore Jeff. The producers make them as real as it could be such as in a documentary, like a visual manual of what we could expect, how we should act, etc. I won’t be surprised to see something like “How to cook a human in three easy steps for dumm…. (pardon me) …for aliens” or whatsoever.

    P.S. December 12th ,2012.

  2. So glad someone recognized this pattern of movies lately. However, very suprised this is on a Jesus freaks blog (sorry I don’t mean to be offensive with that term, but yall know what I’m talking about). Why is it so ridiculous though that an outside life form planted life here on earth and humans today try to refer to that event as the creation of life by God. Isn’t that what the Catholic religion preaches, that the creation of man was initiated by God?

    God should no longer be this eye in the sky type figure or even a form of life or authority to life if you will. God should be just the creator of life, no matter what that may be. If it was proven today that Humans were planted on Earth by another alien life form from another planet, it wouldn’t change peoples perception of God or religion, we would just finally know who God is. All of the religions today would still have their own personal view about those aliens (God) and what they determine is the correct way to live and praise their alien(God). Just by having a picture of someone or physical evidence they exist doesn’t explain there personality and traits.

    What if “Knowing” is right. I get the sense that if the Universe contains other life bareing planets, what if Humans are the oldest living life form in the Universe and we’ve just been ensuring our existence via other planets. We know for a fact there is a long history of life on this planet. Who’s to say that life didn’t come from another area of the Universe.

    Religion CANNOT answer everything. There is no answer for the origin of life, YET! But, maybe if we work together as a human race instead of separating ourselves based on what we think these God like figures have set out for us we can find the answer to life and just how we got here. Open your mind. Stop having faith in a way of life simply because of the way your parents raised you or the way your Government and country have determined is best for you. Lets figure it out once and for all as a human race. (Will never happen, but maybe, just maybe I’ve gotten the attention of the 3 of you that actually end up reading this.

  3. The Bible has the answer for the origin of life and everything else. You just don’t agree with it.

    Ok, here’s my big reply. I’ll be a lot shorter in the future. 🙂

    It’s interesting to realize that while lecturing people to forget what they’ve always been told by religion, we are arguing FOR something else which we all have been told our entire lives. You yourself have taken in the suggestions made to us since we were kids, the claims often told you without evidence, and today it has become an entire worldview that sounds right to you. And now you are doing EXACTLY what you are lecturing others not to do: repeating what you’ve always been told. None of us have gone through school without being told this evolutionary worldview. It’s mentioned everywhere. It’s exactly why when we found red blood cells in a vein of a T-Rex bone a few years ago (which is impossible because they are supposed to be far too old for that) we don’t question our theory, we question the EVIDENCE. We have to because it goes against what we’ve always been told. Don’t worry, it wasn’t the first time. We’ve found soft tissue at least 3 times in the past 20 years. None of which is supposed to be possible.

    And it’s easy not to accept that sort of thing because, well, it doesn’t sound right. It doesn’t fit what we’ve always been told. I would LOVE it if everyone started from scratch and thought critically. I really would. Of course, I also know most Christians have seriously questioned their own faith and thought critically. So maybe there’s hope for us all.

    Anyway, the idea that aliens seeded life on this planet (or that they put us here) gained prominence recently, due at least in part to the fact there is so much evidence for an intelligence behind life on this planet. So Dawkins famously tells Ben Stein, it may be that ALIENS seeded this planet, but the aliens evolved naturally themselves. Now there’s 2 problems with that. One, we can’t prove those aliens exist, let alone show how they evolved. Unless someone can travel to their planet and bring back some fossils…. And Two, that means Richard Dawkins is ok with Intelligent Design as long as it’s aliens. That’s a bias. Mainly from worldview because God doesn’t sound right, but aliens do. Fits with what we’ve all been told our entire lives.

    So we’ve run into problems with the idea of random chance evolution and mounting evidence of design, so we say, “well maybe aliens did it.” Now, I like the idea of finding aliens. But you can’t let an “idea” be your proof, or use as evidence what a movie said. The movie Knowing couldn’t even get their science right, as it would be impossible for the world to be destroyed in that way. Which honestly disappointed me cuz I thought that was a scary cool idea. But I looked it up and… no dice.

    Plus, seeing a Sumerian drawing that looks a little like an older model rocket, or men that look like they are wearing space suits OR old scuba gear, and using that as our evidence…. big stretch. Somebody carved something weird = aliens seeded life on this planet. I need more than that.

    At least with the God of the Bible I can go study the actual science of creation. I know that “sounds” ridiculous, but go check out some info on http://www.creationtruth.com or http://www.icr.org and read the scientific ariticles. You don’t have to agree with it, but there’s a real argument there. I can’t do that with Sumerian drawings and aliens. Nobody is writing scientific papers on THAT. With God I can research the facts and claims of history from everything from the flood to the fossil record to ancient civilizations. With God I can see the evidence of the present, and see the prophetic evidence of nations and men from the beginning until now. And with God I can see the evidence of Jesus both historically, and in my own life.

  4. Hello Brian,

    You write:
    “Now there’s 2 problems with that. One, we can’t prove those aliens exist, let alone show how they evolved. Unless someone can travel to their planet and bring back some fossils…. And Two, that means Richard Dawkins is ok with Intelligent Design as long as it’s aliens.”

    To answer:
    One, we can’t prove God exists.
    Two, Aliens is just one possible answer to how life began on this planet…besides natural evolution and God.

    Since we can’t prove God or aliens exist, but we can see and follow evolution, we know that’s happening.

    Actually evolution is not about ‘starting’ life it’s about how it goes after starting up…we know that is fact and we can follow humans from the start a few million years ago to now.

    🙂

  5. lol Ah the prism of a worldview. Now don’t start assuming that just because evolution can’t answer anything about where we came from, that answers don’t exist.

    God has already proven He exists. The fact that we are giving “aliens did it” any credence at all, with no evidence whatsoever, just shows bias. God walked the earth, made disciples, performed miracles, rose from the dead, filled a temple, covered a mountain, spoke audibly, and spoke through writers, kings, prophets, etc… and made predictions which we can cross check even now. Aliens, are believed, not because they did any of these things, but because it sounds right, because it fits the worldview. We evolved and so aliens should have as well. It’s an assumption based on what we’ve been told our entire lives.

    Again I would love for aliens to exist like they do in Star Trek. I just don’t believe they evolved.

    We really can’t “follow” the evolutionary model. We merely assume it. It doesn’t stand up to scrutiny. It has failed as a sufficient explanation not only regarding the origin of life where it fails completely, but also as an explanation of the complexity of life. It requires the belief in facts we know aren’t true, and the assumption of things we’ve never observed. As such, it’s not science, but religion. A religion we’ve been taught since we were kids. And I disagree on your last point. Logically the theory of evolution cannot avoid the question of the origin of life itself. Every single textbook on evolution includes that question, and modern science continues to search for that answer, precisely because it is unavoidable.

  6. Hi Brian,

    I hope you and your family are well and had a good Thanksgiving.

    You write:
    “lol Ah the prism of a worldview. Now don’t start assuming that just because evolution can’t answer anything about where we came from, that answers don’t exist.

    Ah yes that old worldview…I’ll show you mine if you show me yours. 🙂

    Evolution actually does answer where we can from. Every living thing on earth shares a common ancestor. What evolution doesn’t try to answer is how life first began. Darwin knew he didn’t have the answer to that conundrum so he didn’t even try. Yes we are missing some ‘links’, but we do have an amazing assortment of them now…and no doubt more will be discovered in time. It’s an ongoing process.

    You write:

    The only reason ‘aliens’ are seriously mentioned is that it’s a ’possibility’… however small.

    Well I see you are a ‘Trinitarian.’ O.K. I won’t hold that against you. 🙂 Seriously though I don’t believe God has been proven at all, in fact I don’t believe that He ever will/can be proven.

    You write:
    “Again I would love for aliens to exist like they do in Star Trek. I just don’t believe they evolved.”

    It would be beyond cool if Star Trek type aliens existed and were differentiated by their looks depending on what planet/star system they came from. And, if they do exist, no matter what form they take, I predict they will be evolved such as we humans were. There is no evidence or proofs of any kind in the natural world, indeed in the whole universe, that there has ever been a magical force operating and responsible for creation ‘Ex-Nihilo’ of the universe and our world.

    You write:
    “We really can’t “follow” the evolutionary model. We merely assume it. It doesn’t stand up to scrutiny. It has failed as a sufficient explanation not only regarding the origin of life where it fails completely, but also as an explanation of the complexity of life.”

    Harsh harsh observation my friend.

    “Evolution is tested every day in the laboratory and it’s tested every day in the field. I can’t think of a single scientific theory that has been more controversial than evolution, and when theories are controversial, people devise tests to see if they’re right. Evolution has been tested continuously for almost 150 years and not a single observation, not a single experimental result, has ever emerged in 150 years that contradicts the general outlines of the theory of evolution.

    Any theory that can stand up to 150 years of continuous testing is a pretty darn good theory. We use evolution to develop drugs. We use evolution to develop vaccines. We use evolution to manage wildlife. We use evolution to interpret our own genome. Every one of these uses of evolution is a test, because if the use turns out to be inadequate, we would then go back and question the very idea of evolution itself. But evolution has turned out to be such a powerful, productive, and hardworking theory that it’s survived that test of time.” “Dr. Kenneth Miller for Nova on PBS. He is a professor of biology at Brown University and coauthor (with Joe Levine) of the standard high-school textbook ‘Biology’, Miller testified at the Dover trial as an expert witness for the plaintiffs…”

    “It requires the belief in facts we know aren’t true, and the assumption of things we’ve never observed. As such, it’s not science, but religion. A religion we’ve been taught since we were kids.”

    Au contraire Mon ami, there are facts behind the ‘fact of evolution’ and we know beyond doubt they are true. Assumptions can usually be tested. Evolution fails to meet the real definition of religion, but it does meet the definition of science…has for 150 years.

    Cheers,
    twom

  7. twom, Think about your opening statement. Evolution tells us where we came from, but it can’t tell us the origin of life.

    Besides the contradictory nature of that logic, truthfully, it doesn’t even tell us that in my opinion. Please produce the common ancestor to all life.

    The one evolution claims exists.

    Even the human evolutionary tree has had to be rearranged several times. The “missing link” is once again missing.

    Your worldview assumes evidence that is not in our possession. It assumes it must exist even though it can’t produce it. It cannot demonstrate in a laboratory or explain how new DNA is added to existing DNA so that, for instance, a fish could evolve into a land mammal. Neither can this be observed. What is done in laboratories or experiments do not produce results that prove evolution although they are often hailed as such. Read your own links, and notice how each “model” for attaining irreducible complexity uses words like “might” “could” “may”. Those words do not give proof. The evolutionary worldview is often walking by faith like a religion.

    Which I actually believe is ok.

  8. That same writer who you quoted as saying that evolution was experimented on all the time in the laboratory also said:

    “not a single observation, not a single experimental result, has ever emerged in 150 years that contradicts the general outlines of the theory of evolution.”

    This is going to sound harsh again, but that was a wonderful lie. I know he parsed his words carefully saying nothing contradicted “the general outlines…” but even that requires a stretch. The general outline of evolution was contradicted by the Cambrian explosion. NOW it’s not because they changed the general outline, but when the Cambrian Explosion first came up, it did. That general outline was contradicted a few times by the discovery of still-living ancestors that supposedly other life had evolved from. It is contradicted by DNA evidence in Phylogerontology in my opinion. It was contradicted by DNA evidence on “missing links” thus causing changes to made in the human evolutionary tree. It is contradicted by statistical probability, and from molecular biology. It is contradicted by the discovery of red blood cells in dinosaur bones. It is contradicted by the fossil record’s lack of transitional forms. Etc…

    Look, I deal with Contradictions in the Bible all the time, so I’m not saying these things “disprove” evolution. (Although they do for me) Contradictions can be answered. They can be explained. But to say there have been “no contradictions?” Absurd.

    So while the writer says evolution has been proven in a laboratory, obviously in my opinion, it’s just more hyperbole. (Exaggeration, for those of you playing at home)

    Let’s be clear though. Certain evolutionary mechanisms can be demonstrated in a laboratory. There is no argument there. Any Creationist believes in variations within limits of each DNA. Any Creationist believes in variations caused by losing information through natural selection etc… Any Creationist will agree you can take a pair of dogs and through selective breeding make a bigger dog, or a brown dog, or many varieties of dogs. There are natural variations that are part of what people call “evolution.” As far as that goes, no argument. The claim, however, goes beyond just rearranging a certain amount of DNA. The claim is that these processes whereby life mutates and changes with natural variation has caused the whole diversity of life we see today, and evolutionary processes of our earth and cosmos brought about the origin of life on our planet. Much of that is not testable in the laboratory. That’s what I was talking about.

  9. “I don’t believe God has been proven at all, in fact I don’t believe that He ever will/can be proven.”

    Would you consider meeting an alien, and discussing things with said alien, as proof that aliens exist? If you do, Then God can, and arguably has, been proven. Based on your statement, I would reason that you don’t believe God “can” be proven, because you don’t believe God “can” be personally and physically met. Thus, from the beginning as a presupposition, you are saying you don’t believe He exists.

    Isn’t that a dangerous assumption twom, considering the number of witnesses so far? In my opinion, the assumption that God doesn’t exist, is not made based on evidence, but made despite the evidence.

  10. I think that the bigger picture here its that something unknown and higher than humans have touched, taught and spoke with our ancestors. Today we may call them ancient aliens, greek gods, mythological beings and creatures, or some may call him god. In the end they are all other wordly with great knowledge, understanding, they are advanced beings from above. Be that the heavens, another galaxy, another planet like our own within our solar system our dimension or another dimension. We need to stop fighting to be right and except that there is simply something greater than us out there and as long as we willingly stay ignorant we may never be ready to meet those higher beings/god ()

  11. That’s why it comes down to Jesus, because He claimed to be IT. Jesus claimed to be the one who touched, taught and spoke. There were eye-witnesses who wrote down their accounts, miracles that occurred, and prophecies that were fulfilled. Our world was forever changed by Him. “No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only, who is at the Father’s side, has made him known.” is what one of the eye-witnesses wrote.

  12. Hello Brian,

    I’m sorry, I got lost for awhile. 🙂

    You write:
    “Isn’t that a dangerous assumption twom, considering the number of witnesses so far? In my opinion, the assumption that God doesn’t exist, is not made based on evidence, but made despite the evidence.”

    I don’t believe there have been any witnesses to God. Some Christians tell me that man has never seen God and then the ‘Bible is inerrant’ people tell me that God has been seen by several people in the Bible.

    The Bible doesn’t have enough credentials for me to believe it without question. After all we know so many parts of it are dead wrong. How do we actually know what is true in it?

  13. Hi Brian,

    You write:
    “twom, Think about your opening statement. Evolution tells us where we came from, but it can’t tell us the origin of life.

    Besides the contradictory nature of that logic, truthfully, it doesn’t even tell us that in my opinion. Please produce the common ancestor to all life.”

    Sorry about that, I wasn’t very good at explaining my thoughts. Evolution tells us that there was a common ancestor to all life on earth…in my convoluted explanation I meant that was where we came from…that common ancestor. Evolution theory does not get into the actual origin, the first spark, so to speak, of where life came from.

    If you don’t know science or scientists you probably don’t understand the competition they have with each other in their respective fields. If one scientists were to find proof that a theory is wrong (any theory) and be able to show / prove this empirically he / she would be set for life academically, and probably financially. Heh, even if you were to find the proof that evolution was wrong, you would be rich and famous.

    The objections to evolution you list above have no doubt been considered by real scientists and found to not be true…as are ALL of creationist / fundamentalist objections so far. If they had merit believe me they would be investigated and written about.

    And science is always open to correction, unlike religion which has to be right from the get-go if there is actually a supreme being behind it. So, like I said earlier, evolution has stood up to serious scrutiny for 150 years and its still around, stronger than ever

    There is much in the Bible that can be proven wrong, i.e. not a real historical physical fact, and that pretty much puts the lie to the Bible being ‘inspired by God’

  14. Hello It is what it is,

    There may very well be more intelligent beings than us in the huge universe we live in, but it is not God or gods. I personally don’t think we have been ‘visited’ by anyone or anything. Man has a very good imagination and has made up all those ‘Gods’ of old.

    So far science is telling us that we can’t actually go to other star systems because of the limits of the speed of light. But you know what…people are still working seriously on the problem. I think that is great.

  15. Where is Jesus without ‘original sin’ for him to expiate by being a human sacrifice? Is he still needed without ‘original sin’?

    You write:
    “There were eye-witnesses who wrote down their accounts, miracles that occurred, and prophecies that were fulfilled.”

    What eyewitnesses / writers are you talking about? You are aware that the evil Catholic Church had sole possession of the Christian writings for a thousand years aren’t you?

  16. lol No they did not, but I’m sure they DID try. You do not understand the history of the New Testament or probably realize that the entire New Testament could be nearly recreated by the 40,000-ish letters from that time which quoted various pieces of it. All of those manuscripts, plus the 28,000 fragments and full manuscripts of New Testament writings themselves, most which pre-date the Catholic Church, can be cross checked by any church or group today. And more manuscript finds have been made in modern times to cross check things as well. Those manuscripts are used by every version of the Bible printed in English, and the gnostic writings which also come from that time are also well-known. The Catholic Church couldn’t hide anything if they wanted to. They certainly wanted to in the Dark Ages. Anyway, the eye-witnesses and writers were those who lived and wrote about Jesus themselves. We can have a war of links about this, but there is no controversy over the evil Catholic Church hiding anything between Bible scholars today. And as a Protestant, I’m sure we’d be right in the middle of it if there were.

  17. I know that you meant we came from “that common ancestor” but my point was this ancestor remains lost. What you are missing, or perhaps I’m not making it clear enough, is how a world-view, and starting the assumptions that go with it, affects how every piece of evidence (both new and old) are applied to the existing storyline. And in your post you referenced “real scientists.” That demonstrates a point. Scientists that propose evidence that contradicts the assumed world view are simply viewed as “not real” while those who propose evidence in support of the evolutionary storyline are the “real scientists.” Worldviews do that. Your worldview defines what is realistic or not to you. It’s why the idea of aliens seems perfectly reasonable to you, while the idea of God does not. Your worldview affects how you look at things. Thus, the ease of getting rich and famous by contradicting evolution, doesn’t really work in real life. It’s been contradicted many times, but when you contradict a worldview, you appear foolish to the people who hold it. So instead of getting rich, those scientists who contradict evolution are called into question, or their findings are. And I’ll give you a challenge. Since there is MUCH in the Bible that can be proven wrong, as in, not a real physical fact, then it should be no problem for you to come up with just one example.

  18. I disagree. There isn’t any part of the Bible that is dead wrong. But even if we just stuck with the parts of the story of Jesus that are accepted by everyone, the history of what happened with the people at the center of Christianity’s beginning only has one explanation that fulfills all the requirements… they believed what they said, and they really believed they had seen Jesus risen from the dead. No other explanation fits all the facts of history that are accepted by everyone.

  19. We operate a lot on things that sound right to us. No wonder then that aliens who are far more advanced sounds reasonable to believe, especially considering how much we have fed ourselves this story in books and movies. And I love those kinds of movies. I’m not complaining. But while little green men sounds reasonable to us, God does not because we have taught ourselves a naturalistic worldview for the origin of man and the universe. These starting points color how we view everything.

  20. The limitations that we have with the speed of light are only as debilitating as gravity was on manned flight.

  21. I want to thank the two of you (Brian VS the word of me) for this lovely display of belief. Both of you went tit for tatt on some of the most challenging and controversial points today between religion and science. Graciously. Keep up the good work guys, your beliefs are driving this world exactly where it doesn’t need to go! All intellect aside, the Bible left us with very simple instructions… “…Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself” – It’s as clear as day that this is the undying reason for all the confusion or “convolution” (lol) that we can’t seem to wrap our heads around. All I’m saying is, love one another first, everything else is secondary!

    P.S. – Cloverfield II should be pretty cool.

  22. I think that the government is prepping us for the unrevealing of extraterrestrial figures. Not an invasion but just the unrevealing of aliens or anything else of that sort. I don’t know if you realized it but everyone is talking about aliens and the upcoming or invasion of them. Now i don’t believe that people see UFO’s in there back yard or anywhere else, because if the government really was preparing us for this than you see in the movies that aliens aren’t dumb they have all kinds of high tech gadgics in their UFO’s and weapons! So do you really think that creatures of that intelligence would let us be able to see them? NO i dont! I know if i was an alien i wouldn’t be where humans could see me thats just waiting for us to wonder! You might think then how does the government know about aliens and the stuff that there doing? Well out of all the planets we know about not one other has a life form on it except earth? The pictures of the moon, mars, and all the other planets we see in pictures i think there fony, because the government dosen’t want us to know about other life forms or maybe even if there is another planet that humans can live on who knows. They don’t want us to know this so they will always have the ruleing and that maybe they dont want people to live in space. You don’t have to believe all this but think about I know i have a lot. The information seems to make a lot of since to me and i hope it helps you too!
