Lets just say-- the aliens themselves came down in space ships and hovered over large cities for the masses to witness and record on live broadcast?
Would anyone believe it?
(probably if on live coverage right?)
What would religions say about it?
Is it of the devil or the anti-christ?
How would the world react and how would it effect everything in our reality? It goes much deeper than just knowing they exist so the question is not an easy equation.
With all the disease, poverty, wars and problems facing the world what would people expect?
How would it effect everyone in religions? What would we expect from these ET's or would everyone fear they are here to take over and destroy us? A lot of possibilities, have you ever really thought about it?
Once we find out ET's have always been visiting earth and always been around lets just use that as a scenario how would everyone react?
Would we be upset that so many people have been suffering with disease, war and bloodshed all this time when we know they could have stepped in and saved us?
Would we be angry with them or with God or with our governments who have kept this information hidden from us? (Even possibly cures for diseases, free energy and solutions for everything? Who would we blame?
A lot to think about and that's just a beginning.
If they have been here from the beginning of time did they take place in our creation or manipulate tamper with our dna/evolution?
Were ancient civilizations and histories altered/hidden from us by engineer and design?
Have we been living in a dream world all this time with great illusions surrounding us, a so called blanket of security covering us---religions of the world ---perhaps even placed here by ET's or some of our own kind manipulating us for control and power holding these secrets in tight compartmentalized families or/groups?
Of course there are a lot of questions and possibilities, where do we really come from? What happens when we die? Is there life after death? Re-incarnation? Is there really a God if so who? etc. etc. etc.
Don’t you think the masses of planet earth would be asking these same questions if there was a mass disclosure about extraterrestrials---ET’s that not only have been visiting this tiny rock we call earth but living here perhaps in secrecy, even possibly creators and involved in the creation of life on the planet from the beginning?
Some of these questions would be a very small beginning of endless questions after a disclosure took place.
What do you think would really happen?
THINK ABOUT IT.

I think the bible reefers to them in every way,
Ezekiel 1:16 (NIV)
This was the appearance and structure of the wheels: They sparkled like chrysolite, and all four looked alike. Each appeared to be made like a wheel intersecting wheel.
Ezekiel 1:4 (NIV)
I looked, and I saw a windstorm coming out of the north--an immense cloud with flashing lightning and surrounded by brilliant light. The center of the fire looked like glowing metal.
Exodus 13: 21-22 (NIV)
By day the LORD went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night. Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people.

People, I feel, vastly underestimate how numb humanity is. Predictions of wild reaction are often suggested but in truth I dont think even that revelation is enough to provoke reaction of any magnitude in a species so accustomed to muted brow beaten watching.
People would talk excitedly in the post office queue and in the canteen at work, the bold would call into talk shows and take part in street interviews where they might vent a little and in the interim everything would pretty much tick along as it always has.
Not even this would break the rythm of life, although people would gradually become more aware of the web of lies and trust in leaders would fall, but I certainly dont see the world coming apart.
Unless of course they just pop into the street and the media stir up "alien attack" scenarios, in which case the masses wouldstart running round like headless chickens.
Just knowing wont really break the system, just effect a change in pressures and a change in who we trust to lead I suspect.
Humanity lost its reactivity long ago, now people are so numbed and used to the rigmarole its hard to image that changing overnight.
You are talking about a social response to a threat, not just existence.
What do you think would really happen?
nobody can predict what would happen because you don't know who or what is going to show up.
What if Aliens showed up and didn't know anything about religion or ways to cure all of our diseases and fix all of our problems ?
"we cannot give you the solutions it's against our law. We can visit you here and help you in a few simple ways but cannot interfere in your natural process of evolution and growth---You must go through the same process we did that include disease, death and so on. We are not aloud to cure disease for any species within the galaxy accept our own but we have conquered disease and aging millions of years ago. We even have the key to eternal life but can't give it to you, you will have to learn it yourself through natural evolution and it could take you millions to even billions of years."
Real life is like watching a soap opera for the masses, im not even sure society knows what reality actually is anymore.
"Oh well, as long as it doesn't happen to me and my familiy."
"The government wouldn't do that to me, why would they do that?"

I would like to kill an alien to see what color they bleed and to watch them die. Just a little get even for all the evil they have done to humans over millenia.
