I don't think there would be a great deal of chaos, the general
public in the civilized world would have no problem, I mean,
as it is 70% of Americans believe that aliens exist, and consi-
dering the rest of the civilized world would'nt have a problem
with it either.
I think the only people who would have a problem with it are
the extremeist factions of the abrahamic religions.

But our world does not have real hard proof that aliens are real. Non believers can still mock us all and they have the hardcore scientific community to back them up. Even an owner of this site called the ufo section 'crap' in a recent podcast I believe. There's just no cold hard proof that aliens exist. Ufo's are not proof of aliens either I believe.
So videos of ufos or government and official testimonies mean very little and are not conclusive proof that aliens are here. In fact I believe they are disinformation designed to lead people away from the aliens that are already here.

Hello, hilroy, and welcome to ATS.
That is a very good question indeed. I tend to agree with you that we are not ready. Asking it in this forum, I'm sure there are many who will say that they are, mainly because they have considered it as they've read the hundreds of threads here and elsewhere. But, I still think it's a good question here, simply because those same members can now turn their attention on humanity at large and determine what the impact would be on them.
The first to be impacted would be governments, who for so many centuries have had to contend only with other governments on Earth, but now must consider how they should react to an alien race.
Second would be corporations, for if the alien culture was more advanced, they would be scrambling to keep some semblance of 'market share' when everyone wants the products that the aliens may be willing to provide.
As for individuals, well...I can only speak for myself, but I knbow my little world view would be dramatically altered.
And, lastly, on religions... I don't belong to any one of them, so I'll leave that for those who do.
I say we are ready for them 2 come peacefully or in state of war

What do you think would happen if it was on the news stating aliens are real?
After the novelty of the info has worn off, there would be acceptance.
I am new here and this is my way of saying hello aswell
I think that one third of the people know they are here and accept it as reality.
but i think that i would be relativly be the same as dgtempe as i am a christian
Ordinary people are no longer afraid to speak openly about these things and not feel ridiculed.

. The only reason those in power don't talk about it is that their power would be somewhat diminished if they admiited that aliens exist.
most people have become numb to shocking news
I agree with masqua...big business would have a heart attack!!
Personally, I'd be cool with it. My kid however would likely hyperventilate and curl up into a little ball of denial...same with many of my friends.
There is no difference between a alien and an apple.

do people really believe that the world government is going to allow aliens here and collapse the economy on them. Who would go back to work after an alien visitation. Who could just return to there day to day humdrum life if aliens visited them.
