Just saw this on CNN. It's an opinion piece written by the director of SETI.

www.cnn.com...

Some may be aware that Stephen Hawking stated on the first episode of his new show that we should discourage the search for extraterrestrials because of the potential harm they could bring us. This opinion piece offers a counter to that argument, essentially saying that while Hawking makes some very good points in his program, we should not fear alien contact.

I find it interesting that this comes up now amidst what seems to be a growing acceptance of UFO and ET subject matter in the MSM. Could this be part of the rumored "public acclimation" campaign that is gradually preparing our minds for some sort of disclosure (or false flag)? Seeing as how it's written by the director of SETI and is telling us not to fear aliens, it seems like it could be, but I hesitate to form a one-sided opinion on these things.

What do you guys think?

Our paranoid and often unpredictable nature should certainly make them more afraid of us.

As with all encounters with the unknown, we should be wary of what we step into, but never afraid to experience the new.

YES, "aliens" are demons. There only purpose is to distract people and cause them confusion. That is why there is never that undeniable proof. That is why they are so illusive. Stay far away.

Yes, I feel we should be very afraid of ET's.
Here are some of my feelings about the topic.

well we shouldnt fear them, because i know for a fact they are not demons because if they were then we should just throw our bibles away. But the reason why Hawkins would probably fear them is because he is so smart he had to many thoughts running through his head. It is a disorder of some kind but think about it im a christian and this stuff interest me. If an alien race was to come to earth yes of course the people will fear them its in our nature to fear something we dont know about. Plus if they come down and want to colonize on our planet we cant denie them that because its not ours its Gods and i believe he would want every living creature a plce they can call home think about it

If you look at it at face value, was this not actually disclosure?

Stephen Hawking makes a statement that has been spread globally, basically that aliens/ET`s or other exist? He goes even further to add that they may use ships? So in theory he has stated that they exist and also they are of a higher intelect?
Im not going to waste space on your thread pasting all of the links to ufo/alien related news of late but i honestly think that disclosure in part has been given.

Although in a small piece, checking the water so to speak?
I imagine now that we will have another statement from some other org or figure, possibly Steven Greer or similar to clarify the matter.

My prediction is that we will have Disclosure before july 11th 2010

I really don't think we should fear them. I mean, they can't possibly be any worse than our own governments, right?

You should never trust anything smarter than you.

I would strongly encourage everyone who ponders upon extra-terresterial lives to take part in the poll or share your opinion there

I will not influence anyone on this post as some may know where I stand, but your opinions are IMPORTANT with regards for Disclosure of ET Intentions to happen. The choice is yours alone to make and the result of the poll will show how open or fearful we are, a feedback to CNN staff and to the govts, to push or pull information.

Change begins with you and me. Good Luck.

You hit the nail on the head. Those that come from the skies (not all) in the coming years will be the mirror of those upon the planet in power. They are going to want to control humanity and be worshipped.

I'd fear them as I've read about too many abductions, cattle multilations and human experiments to trust them right now, they've got their work cut out to gain instant trust.

If a ufo landed on your lawn what would be an appropriate reaction?

a) ring the police
b) tap on it with a broom handle and ask if anyone's in there
c) video it and post it on youtube

Definately C
But i would be standing shaking hands with him/her/it
maybe a cup of coffee and i`ll even throw in a tin of cat food, as a good will gesture.
Then i would have it posted on here then have all the debunkers raid the thread and ultimately have it decided it was fake, hoax etc etc.

Except if our governments are run by them.

If the aliens ignored us, that would probably be the smartest life out there.

I seriously doubt humans would of got anywhere without aliens or entities or what ever is out there and most sure of the fact that they run the show.

Are humans smart enough today to go there own way, who knows?

But how will humans stop them, as they can probably decide on anything we do, how do you stop them?

Fear them no, question their intentions yes. Not all are evil for some may have been spawned by the original 1/3 fallens who left the heavens and created on their own ALIENS TO SUPPORT HUMANITY after some of the 1/3 fallen realized SATANS REAL PLAN and wished not to follow satan no longer nor wished to create EVIL ALIENS SPECIES FROM ORIGINAL CREATOR TISSUE SAMPLES WITH SATAN LEGIONS
, SO I CAN NO LONGER CONCLUDE THEM ALL TO BE EVIL but many are and many more possess potentials to have an evil influence. No matter they all are parishable like humanity AND can be destroyed and ENERGY REDISTRIBUTED AS WELL.

Oh really! There are more humans that I would like to stay faaaar away from. You know: bigots, murderers, rapists, energy vampires, war-mongering conspirators etc....

And even when you have that undeniable proof, wouldn't that still make them demons? I personally believe that just the mere fact of evidence of life elsewhere will be like holy water spraying on the “demons” who have tried to keep humanity in the dark on here.

Please quit yelling. You have been using CAPS in several different threads. This is considered rude in case you didn't know. If you would like to make your point use "quotes" or anything else other than caps. I'm no mod but it "is" rude.

I would say that any contact with life that is exterestial in nature needs to be done with extreme caution and to be wary on both sides.
Knowing that the possibility of life exists out in the universe gives it a bit of a wonder, confirmation would end all debate, but raise alot of questions. Initial meeting would not be the best thing in the world, as there are way too many things that could go wrong. The first of all is languange and culter. One small faux pas could create an incident that neither side would be wanting and the results would be diseasterous, the other part is more on a biological in nature. We here on the earth have built up immunities to our own bacteria and viruses, those from another planet have there own. It could be diseasterous on both sides, if it ended up that such was deadly to the other.
