But until we do have evidence like that, most of us aren't going to believe in the Spaceship Guys because (obviously) there's no evidence.

Say something as drastic as a UFO landing on the White House lawn happened. How would the public react to it assuming the government couldn't explain it away? Do you think there would be nationwide panic as the popular theory goes or do you think mankind would be thrust into a new age of understanding assuming they're friendly?
Assuming the government is not already in contact with beings from somewhere other then Earth, I think the nations of the world would automatically recognize them as a threat. I would hope that we would not be hostile, but given human nature I don't think we could expect anything less.

shorty, I know the qestion was not meant for me, just wanted to offer my thought...
That moment in time to hear/see a different realization...would cause everyone to seek a new understanding, we would look at the Universe beyound our own current Concept, and realize a little more that may make a difference in our lives...

Landing on the White House lawn would show a sign of superiority against the world's top super power by rendering the U.S. capital defenseless by easily getting through restricted airspace unharmed. I guess you could consider it making a grand entrance.
When Maurice came to study the Mayan calendar he noticed that there was a great similarity between the time cycles predicted for solar magnetism and the cycles inherent to the Mayan calendar system. In his theory the Sun's magnetic field reverses at the end of a complete cycle, after 1,366,040 days. In the Mayan calendar, a complete cycle of time is 1,366,560 days.
