1. Do you BELIEVE First contact with good Extraterrestials will happens in 2009?
No. It's been a well-kept secret for over half a century, don't see any reason it'd slip now....
2. Do you WANT First contact with good Extraterrestials to happen in 2009?
This may surprise some...No.
At least not without knowing exactly what their intentions are, and what their capabilities are. Look, if they've been cooperating in the secret
keeping for this long (and it takes two to Tango), then their agenda probably isn't in our best interests... Whatever it is they're up to, it
doesn't seem to have created a huge alteration to life as we know it (under the secrecy)...so can't say the same thing for if they were public, and
no longer needed to maintain the secrecy...
In addition, disclosure needs to be done as carefully as brain surgery, so as to not completely disrupt the worlds economic, social, political, and
religious structure. Revelation of an alien presence without knowing those two factors (intention and capability) would lead to rapid uncertainty and
panic, with industries collapsing, riots, looting for survival supplies (and just in general), governments based on religions collapsing, a breakdown
of social order, and other catastrophes .
EDIT: Granted, I'm taking this more as Disclosure, than First Contact, because I believe we've had First Contact many decades ago...
