What do you think of Elon Musk claiming he is a mutated alien? It this possible?

Asked by Aster (19874points) 1 month ago

Watching youtube I saw him agreeing with the interviewer who suggested he might be an alien and Musk replied, ” yes; a mutated alien.” He didn’t laugh or smile and sounded sincere.

@elbanditoroso Oh, dear. Hope I can find it on youtube. You could help? I watched this morning.

Here’s the video I watched. It’s way too long to locate where he said it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycPr5-27vSI

He claims to be an alien around 11:12 min in and maybe 45 sec to 1 minute later he says he’s a a mutation. Personally, I think he looks like an alien so I can’t argue with him

Thank you, @SEKA ! Although I disagree he looks anything like your standard alien!

What does a “standard” alien look like? I’m not a musk fan so I find him to be very odd looking and somewhat less than human looking

He was definitely saying it tongue in cheek. You can see a slight smirk in his face.
The following discussion about Musk’s “fatalistic” attitude toward AI is interesting.

Of course he’s not a mutated alien! That’s absurd.

In a rational world it was done in jest. It’s not a rational world with a TV show host in the WH so yes, Musk could be a mutated alien.

He’s smiling all through that part of the interview. He’s obviously joking.

Aster's avatar

I dont believe he was joking because he makes it clear he believes aliens built the pyramids. Ok; I guess he was also joking about that?
