Many scientists like Stephen Hawking, believe that such meeting would end badly for us - humans would play the role of American Indians and the aliens that of European settlers. Hawking has recently issued a theory about this: "I guess they could be condemned to live in huge spaceships, after having exhausted all natural resources of their planet of origin. These aliens to the highly developed technology could become nomads, traveling the space in perpetual search of planets to conquer and colonize. "
Mile-wide UFO spotted by British Pilot
One of the largest UFOs ever seen has been observed by the crew and passengers of an airliner over the Channel Islands.
"It was 2,000ft up and stationary. I thought it was about 10 miles away, although I later realised it was approximately 40 miles from us. At first, I thought it was the size of a [Boeing] 737.
"But it must have been much bigger because of how far away it was. It could have been as much as a mile wide."

everything has its weakness.... we would just have to fight guerrilla style! I understand what Stephan Hawkins means though... then again i think humans might just be an alien experiment and they are watching and studying us. It would be cool to see aliens just to tell the non believers that i was right, then again outta everything in the world aliens scare me the most.

Smart guys like Hawking and Kaku warn against advertising our existence. Notice how Hawking says uses the words "huge spaceships" and "colonize."

as you say it's obvious that we are not prepared, the point is why ? i go littel far on my reflection but since a few years i 'm looking for the answer of the big question where do we come from ? i'v ask that question at too many people,the common answer is the ape story or the god story but my brain can not figure it out,i 'm not looking automaticaly for the ET story but when i start to evocate that perspective people laugh, they are not confortable with that idea, they rather preffer to think that life start with adam and eve or a monkey who become us, then a manipulation coming from outer space, even if people don't wanna buy the ET manipulation many scientist say life has came from space with the meteor, if it happen here it could happen also in every place in the univers, where is the origin the source...and if they are like us the could have many reason to invade us like human did with african people or south american people, people think for the recources but sometimes it's just for building an empire...

Obviously we must have something that they are afraid. Perhaps our atmosphere.
Damn, they may even be sensitive to water. (M night shamalon )
Oh, wait I forgot we are the chosen race of God

Umm. Yes, we do connect dots. Most people do, I think. I am fairly familiar with that picture. Ancient astronaut theorists don't think it is a man in a spacesuit, or a ET. I believe that they thought it was an alien hybrid of some sort. Again, I'm only fairly decent at remembering that picture.
*EDIT* Also I have to correct you on something : That picture is not an example of ancient times, it is a "Picture of a being from ancient times"edit on 2-12-2010 by Hockuu because: Correcting a fellow person.
