It's 2013. In the context of UFOs, we're talking aliens, ET, flying saucers, technology beyond our most wild of imaginations, and, with all that, the oft times assumption that "they" -- the aliens -- are also far more spirituality advanced than us, given their extraordinary technology. (That is an opinion I do not share; it's not a given that creatures with advanced technology would also be advanced spiritually.)
So in this context of on the edge, fringe thought, I ask two questions: one, why do alien UFO shows still use the term B.C. instead of B.C.E., and, two, why do the writers of these shows still use the term "mankind" instead of "humankind?"
