Would You Really Want to Meet An Alien?

What do you think would happen if we really ran into an Alien species?

Stephen Hawking said that, "The history of advanced races meeting more primative people on this planet in not very happy, and they were the same species. I think it would be a Disaster", when asked hes gut feeling on the subject.

Alot of scientist have predicted that, "We will know for sure between 2020-2025"

Knowing us its highly unlikely that we would pass apon a chance to communicate with another intelligence no matter how dangerous it might be for us.

lanet hunter who have just touched the surface have discovered over 130 known planets outside the milky way. So its even for skeptics its not to far out of the realm that we might be visited.

My question is what do you think would happen?

1. They see us but consider us just not important enough to waste their time on, too primative. Maybe like Star Trek there waiting for us to do something special like hyper travel, etc.

2. We are too scary fighting each other at some spot on the Earth constantly, Nuclear war, etc. So they pass

3. They show up say hi, want to be friends. Want to meet some women.

4. Show up Independence day style and just want to steal our natural resources.

5. Show up Battle field Earth style and not only want our resources but need some slaves too.

6. Curiosity overtakes them and they land with a give and take personality.

7. Are xenophobic and will kill us if they find us.

8. Came some time ago to mine, genitically altered us from Neanderthals, to Homosapiens, and the "starchild was born"

9. Are here right now ie men in black.
9A. They are working with government like the movie
9B. Are working to slowly take over the government with hybrids and control us.

The question is what do you think?

I think the doomsday scenario where the aliens will destroy us is highly unlikely for a number of reasons. The first being were simply not advanced enough to pose any sort of threat to a species who has the technology to travel here in the first place. You also have to consider the politics, if there one alien species it likely means there are a lot of species and with that destroying an entire primitive race wouldn't play to well with other species around the galaxy.

As for the mining resources scenario again it simply doesn't seam logical. The Earth although it contains a lot of resources doesn't contain a great deal when you compare it to the rest of our system, again politics would play into this, although an alien race may send a mining team here to extract resources destroying us in the process is something I doubt would go down very well with other species. If they were to come here at all I would expect (hope) they would simply mine the other planets.

I think two things will either happen, we would be deemed not ready yet and would be avoided by all alien races although I doubt anyone would pass up the chance to watch a world evolve or destroy its self. Or they would contact up and hopefully give us a nice recipe for ice cream.

that is all of course assuming that most alien races have evolved to the point where no longer rely on war and mass slaughters to solve there problems.

I would like to meet any alien that is not hostile at this point.

As much as I'd like to say I'd like to see one, I think in reality I'd freak out if I did!

But I guess it would be something you'd get used to, as long as they're not hostile.

Personally I think aliens visit earth either from time to time or as an ongoing observance, may even have bases here and there, but I think they are likely withholding all out contact even with our govt. because we are still the equivalent of the retards from the movie deliverence in this sector of the galaxy.

OMG, I just spit beer all over my desk.

I'd like to see and talk to one, I don't think I'd freak out or anything.
