Any reasons why it would be otherwise?


Maybe they want to feast on our tasty flesh.. That replicator stuff leaves a tinny taste in their mouths..:-)

Maybe, but you'd think their line of domesticated livestock wouldn't have that wild gamy taste either, and considering all the many carcinogens that get ingested here (at least in my major-metropolitan-area case), I don't think they'd even risk feeding me to their pets :))
[edit] omg! I guess I can't anymore rightfully refer to myself as "organically grown" !!

Just think... Maybe they will domesticate us.. Let us graze for a little while then feed us organically grown vegetarian diet to get the wild gamy taste out and flush out the carcinogens which mostly collect in the fatty tissue. All they just need well trimmed ' Tasty' portions.. :-)

Edit: Just picture the breeding program to make us docile...

As it turns out, our solar system is quite unique, and both the latest computer simulations and observations seem to bear that out (see New computer simulations show how special the solar system is). So then maybe we're a rare delicacy to critters with extremophiles for gut flora and carcinogens are just a little spice...

There's a sci-fi story, from the 70's I think, featuring a new faster than light craft called the OverCee. First trip found a star system, with a human habitable planet and a whole bunch of very familiar looking humanoids crowded on it in primitive conditions. The deduction was that it was a 'farm' established by some other unknown race, and by extension Earth was too. The ominous ending included the hope that 'they' wouldn't return to check up on how the 'crops' were going.

Cheers, Mike.

For some reason that we are unique does not surprise me. For a carbon based life form to exist here on earth only requires liquid water and energy. I do not have enough imagination to vision life other than carbon based..

Edit: Who knows this place might be just for us to explore.. What better excuse do we need to continue to exist..
