    Default Should Mankind Live In Peace With The Silurians?

    There's a dillemma at the end of Doctor Who and The Silurians, a question for all humanity. Could we share this planet with a race of intelligent reptiles? Remembering that these aren't the slinky, sexy reptiles of the new series, could we give up our resources and space to allow Homo Reptilia to regain a foothold in our world?

    If this were real, what do you think? Should humanity do it, or should we protect ourselves? They've shown that they are agressive, but was that only because we were agressive first?

    Would you want a Silurian family moving in next door to you, with their sulphurous smell, weird pets and the ability to reduce you to a state of primal fear?
    Pity. I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary bank. EXTERMINATE!

    Well it's quite clear that the Silurian race could live in the areas of the world we don't inhabit, like all the desserts and arctic regions and shit. Furthermore, they're bound to have skills that we need and have lost or never had, like basket weaving or the ability to create a virus that turns you blotchy and makes you spin round violently at train stations.

    So I say let them have the bits of the world we don't want and live in peaceful harmony. It would be an alliance based on solid grounding, given they passionately hate humanity and liken us to stupid apes, and one not at all likely to end in nuclear war that destroys the Earth.

    Si.

    Doctor Who has taught me you can't trust aliens - kill them on sight!!!
    Remember, just because Davros is dead doesn't mean the Dalek menace has been contained ......

    Maybe they can join our society. There could be Silurian entertainers and comedians, like that old cross-dressing Silurian, Eddie Lizard.

    Wipe them out! They may have been here first, but the usurpers have more to offer the planet! If we lived in harmony with the Silurians, then those who have Sky TV will have the horror of watching "Silurian Chat" in which Silurians pace around naked* enticing people with mobiles to indulge in fantasy chat with them! Is this what you'll want? Because that's what will happen!
    Think of the damage the housing market will suffer if we live alongside them?
    2 up, 2 down and a huge cave underneath the house?

    *= Well as naked as they usually are, but with bras on and stuff.

    Brigadier: *exhales Yeah. Sod it. New age and all that.
    Doctor: This is a momentous event in Earth's history. Life on Earth pooling it's resources together with other intelligent species on the planet.
    Young Silurian: Apart from the Arabs though.
    Other Silurian: No, that's right! And the Jews! They really have to go!

    We should be terribly nice to each other, man. Reptiles can co-habit with us... it was like their place first.

    I've just got my handcuffs and my truncheon and that's enough.

    I don't mind as long as they turn their synth music down a notch.

    It's like when they discovered Annie Walker had secretely left the Rovers Return to Betty in 1984 and that meant her son owned it instead of the person who had legally bought it three owners on. It's that situation all over again.

    Any race that thinks the moon means the world is going to end deserves to be wiped out, together with fundamental Christians. Actually wouldn't that be a fun episode - they wipe out creationists who refuse to believe they were there first!

    Their downfall was evolving a tabloid press. I can see it now:

    SILURIAN STAR: "BIG THING IN SKY - RUN FOR COVER!"

    THE DAILY REPTILE: "PM SAYS 'MOON WILL DESTROY US ALL'"

    HEAT MAGAZINE : "BIG LIZARD BROTHER WILL TAKE PLACE IN HIBERNATION SHELTER"

    Si.

    I think this is completely the wrong question to ask.

    You should be asking - Can Mankind Live In Peace With The Silurians?
    not 'should'.

    And as long as they don't play their serpents and crumhorns in the middle of the night.

    There's only one question that you should be asking yourself: how exciting would it be to walk down the street and have full-size lizard people mingling with humans?

    The answer therefore is HELL YES.
