In this world there are two kinds of people, to oversimplify it a bit: those who believe in aliens, and those who do not. For those who do not, the
matter is settled, but for those who do, there is even more division; a question one must frequently ask themselves:
Are aliens friendly or hostile?
There is much evidence to support either side of the story, so consider a few things first.
If aliens are hostile, then that's that. All we need to worry about is how to fend them off (good luck with that one). But if aliens are friendly,
then we have to ask ourselves whether they are being truthful. No matter how friendly and helpful we might believe they are in the future, that is a
question that will always be in the back of our minds. Are we being fed lies? Are those who believe aliens are friendly simply the controlled
products of alien propoganda? Even those who claim to have had encounters with friendly aliens... Is it all for show?
If they are indeed friendly then they should openly introduce themselves to the public. Humans are not the primative, armpit scratching,
club-womping, snarling, hairy brutes that some would make us out to be. Remember the H.G. Wells radio program we all freaked out about? That's what
happened when told we were being invaded... Isn't it a little biased to assume we would react the same way if told we were being
greeted in a friendly manner as apposed to "Run for your lives, we're all going to die!"?
Personally, I believe that they are hostile and that their intentions are less than honorable. Better safe than sorry, I say. However, I must say it
would be a great relief to be proved wrong.
