Experts fear alien invasion would be more like 'Independence Day' than 'E.T.'

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS, December 23, 2017.

By Linda Stasi.

The article hasn't got the attention it deserves and reveals a very underexposed and interesting aspect - brought in by retired U.S. Army Major Paul H. Smith, Ph.D., who was trained in psychic espionage and is author of "Reading the Enemy's Mind: Inside Star Gate — America's Psychic Espionage Program".

"My contacts [retired military and scientists under contract to the government] say there might be a very real threat," Smith said. "These aliens, they claim, are not necessarily like 'E.T.,' but seem more like 'Independence Day.' In other words, less friendly and less interested in our well-being. The government may be looking either to expand its base of knowledge or to prepare people for something.

"You could lobby all day and they wouldn't budge [on releasing UFO information], so the real question is 'why' they're willing to allow it now? There might be a serious concern that this thing is a real threat."

This from a man who was trusted with the most secret of government intel for decades."

Some scientists have warned about the dangers of announcing our prescience for a few years , Stephen Hawking being one.

"One day, we might receive a signal from a planet like this," Hawking said, referring to the potentially habitable alien planet Gliese 832c. "But we should be wary of answering back. Meeting an advanced civilization could be like Native Americans encountering Columbus. That didn't turn out so well,"

These days I tend to agree although we have already announced our position and given details of our species to the Universe so the damage is already done.

Not true maybe 100 lightyears might be able to pick up broadcast assuming they are looking for them. Beyond that everything will get lost in background noise so most of the galaxy will have no idea we are here

The ET comes first. They are the scouts to see if the fuel to bring the colony ship is worth coming here. They have to evaluate our resources, both what they can take and how we will fight.

Well as far as I know, Earth doesn't have any Dilithium crystals so we should be okay.

"LINDA STASI, the popular and well-read columnist for the New York Daily News, and previously for the New York Post, is also an on-camera TV co-host with Mark Simone on NY 1 -Spectrum “What a Week.”

Brash, funny and opinionated, the acerbic Stasi’s first novel, The Sixth Station, published in January of 2013 by Forge Books was hailed as, “A helluva religious thriller,” by Nelson DeMille, while Steve Berry said, “You’ll be grabbing the pages so tight your knuckles will turn white!” Booklist said of the book, “Dan Brown and Steve Berry fans have another controversial novel in which to lose themselves.” For The Sixth Station, Stasi was selected as a finalist for the Mary Higgins Clark Award."

If we think logically about the level of technology required to travel here from elsewhere in the galaxy, other species would have needed to master FTL travel, gravitational waves, radiation shielding, advanced navigation, the list goes on and on.

IMO an encounter would not be like Independence Day. Wasn't the film where Will Smith knocks out an ET with a right cross, Jeff Goldblum figures out the alien's communication system, they destroy the alien mothership with a smuggled in nuke, and we all live happily after?

I feel an invasion scenario would be like one of my favorite books from childhood, H.G. Wells' "War of the Worlds.". The invading civilization would annihilate us and decimate our population, and there's nothing we could do to even slow them down. The only thing that might stand in their way would be some unforseen biological or natural phenomenon that would disrupt the aliean physiology. With respect to M. Night Shamylan.... I don't think it's water.

For one minute let's say Aliens do exist (I'm on the fence usually)

An all out attack on an unknown planet doesn't seem the best strategy. We could have precious materials and things that they can't get in thier own galaxy.
Sending a scout down first to see what type of defenses we have and what's on offer would make more sense. Although we don't know how their minds work. They could attack first and search out for materials after.

Do I expect to wake up one morning and see a massive ship over my city? It is a possibility. I think a smaller scout ship is more than likely to appear in the sky though.

We have discovered many habitable planets within 100 Light Years plus who's to say all alien species are planet bound.

If astronomers had to choose a planet in another star system to send a spaceship, these three would be prime candidates:

Proxima Centauri b: an exoplanet orbiting an M-type red dwarf star 4.24 light years away in the constellation of Centauri.

Tau Ceti e: an exoplanet orbiting an M-type red dwarf star 11.9 light years away in the constellation of Cetus.

Teegarden b: an exoplanet orbiting an M-type red dwarf star 12 light years away in the constellation of Aries.

There are roughly 2,000 stars at a distance of up to 50 light-years from our Solar System[4] (64 of them are yellow-orange "G" stars like our Sun[5]). As many as 15% of them can have Earth-sized planets in the habitable zones

Well, they can mine the whole solar system without much resistance. That tiny bit left on that weird biplanet system wont be worth fighting for. Just leave those locals fight themselves for the leftover crumbs and have a good laugh at the winning side while they explore their depleted star system, trying to get a grasp on what the hell happened.

Might make a good reality show too. Win win.

The first ten minutes of Independence Day was overwhelming devastation and destruction by alien invaders and the beginning of a good movie. Hopefully this is the part they are talking about.

Then Will Smith punched an alien and it quickly turned into Hot Shots: Part Trois.

U.S. Army Major Paul H. Smith's sources provide an excellent explanation of the on the surface strange alliance, launched in 2015, between former Major General and "Commander, Air Force Research Laboratory, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base" - of all places - William McCasland, and multi-millionaire, UFO enthusiast, and punk-rocker, Tom DeLonge.

Well that makes a lot of sense, since the premise of E.T. involved no invasion.

What resources do we possess that aren't even more abundant in asteroid belts, icy bodies and stars?

Us or to be more precise food , this planet is full of tasty morsels of which we may be just one.

They possess the ability to traverse dozens or even hundreds of light years across the gulf of empty space faster than they die of old age but they can't (1) grow food, (2) clone food, (3) bio engineer juicy meat on giant spindles?

Does that seem reasonable to you? Because it sounds the plot of some Hollywood movie written by people who flunked out of math, science and history. Let alone basic logic.

Even then, an invasion wont be needed. Just pluck a few good specimen and start a humfarm off planet. That is if Uth isn't already just that. Either way, no need for an invasion. a reply to: gortex

I don't think they would come in and destroy everything. Too messy. If they come from light years away, they're going to need some place to stay. They're going to want to keep the infrastructure intact. A few nuclear powerplants melting down would be disasterous. I think they would be more into infiltration and taking over with secret societies and the rest of us would unknowingly be slaves. If there was an Independence day scenerio it would be ETs covertly fighting the ETs that are already here. We would barely know only through sightings. The top humans would know but would not tell the rest of us for fear of their own lives.

It's very possible that other ape like alien species are evil like us and have wrecked havoc through the universe.

An advanced alien race might be looking to to rid mankind from the universe, or move us further away into deep space isolation.

If only some could see inside the asteroid belt.

It is a perfect recon position to evaluate and survey various SOL system celestial objects/moons/planets including EA*RTH in plain hidden site...
