Many scientists believe that finding life outside the solar system is within reach. Consider the NASA article at the end of this post.
But by way of a thought experiment, let us imagine that, say, 2000 to 4000 years ago, extra-terrestrial life forms contacted humans here on earth. What they found disappointed them. Man was murdering, pillaging, and treating women like animals. In addition, they were sacrificing their babies to their gods whilst having orgies. Children prepubescent were used as sex objects and sold and married to old men.
Mankind had a deep desire to become friends with these extra-terrestrials, but these “intelligent beings” from who knows where had conditions. They instructed humans to be kind to one another, to have self-sacrificing love, to do nothing wrong with their companions. To love their children. To stop lying and carrying out deception. To avoid greed, envy, and materialistic endeavours. To loan without interest. To redistribute the land every fifty years and bring about an equalisation were everyone would be amply cared for and there would be no inflation.
And then they finally said, if you do these things, you will be happy.

Imagine these supernatural entities by their supernatural powers, turned their attention to the earth in this year of 2023. Would they find that man had cleaned up their act, so to speak?
Consider, our fellow humans in developing countries are dying for want of food, antibiotics, and other medical basics. Children by the thousands are going blind for lack of cataract surgery.
Millions roam the earth for want of a place to lay their head and we store them away in old prisons and ships to please the voters. Millions of children have never met their fathers. Absent fathers are growing as the next generation succumb to the narcissistic zeitgeist. While half the world revel in shameful wealth, the other half suffer.
The list goes on and on in addition to the things that those extra-terrestrials required all those centuries ago. And they sigh, hoping that man would become human.
You have probably concluded by now that this is not a thought experiment, but a reality.
I said to myself, “God will judge both the righteous man and the wicked man,” for a time for every matter and for every deed is there.
2 Chronicles 16:9
For the eyes of the Lord move over all the earth so that He may give strength to those whose whole heart is given to Him
