Just be weary if this happens and this is just a facade to get them to build space weapons up in Earth's orbit. Go towards 4:41 and start there.

Stephen Hawking says Aliens exist

Skeptics, please don't start calling Hawking names like you did with Edgar Mitchell.

Also, why would aliens colonize earth, as apposed to any of the other billions of planets in the galaxy? Yea, maybe earth is special? I don't know.. but if your whole civilization can move off the planet in a space ship, one would think they would be advanced enough to mine the resources on any of the other planets/moons in the solar system, while leaving earth alone; but who knows, really.. alien life is.. alien.

Do you believe we're indigenous to this planet? Do you believe extraterrestrials inhabited this planet and colonized it? Basically what in trying to get at is do you believe there are other humans out there?

I think it's perfectly rationale to suppose that aliens might need some element on earth for some unknown reason. We can't pretend to know what the reason is. That they might treat us like a colony of ants is also a reasonable supposition. But then, it's also a reasonable supposition that they might not even need a resource on earth. Either way, they may or may not care about us, but they probably wouldn't care about us anymore than we would care about dolphins or bears. That's assuming that being able to travel here across interstellar space also means that they're the equivalent of a human versus a bear or dolphin. But, who knows? Nobody, right now.edit on 13-9-2011 by jonnywhite because: (no reason given)
