Earth must prepare for close encounter with aliens, say scientists!

Assuming we can all agree that any alien species that is advanced enough to have mastered faster than light travel must be millions, if not billions of years more advanced than us....

That being said, exactly what do we have to offer such an advanced species? We would have nothing in common or anything of interest to them. They probably wouldn't even want to waste time to study us, any more than we would stop on a sidewalk to get to know the ants crawling around.

Of course one could surmise that they would want to either study us, or be interested in us just because we are both "intelligent" sentient species, and that alone merits interest in getting to know us, but again, remember how much more advanced they are than us, it is arrogant of us to think that they even think we do, have similar morals that we do. Remember that ants and bees are very "intelligent" and have social structures and interactions, yet we don't care about their well being except for what they can give us (honey, balancing the insect ecosystem).

All that being said, it would seem to be that the only thing that "we" (humanity) has to offer a highly-advanced alien race is the resources of "our" planet. We know that that planets that exist in the "goldilocks" zone, where liquid water can exist and other factors which can support advanced life forms, are few and far between. So, perhaps the reason that UFO's are spotted but the aliens do not make contact are for the same reason that we do not talk to honeybees, we have no interest in trying to communicate with them, we simply want to take what they have (honey).

In other words, advanced alien life would probably just want to pillage our planet for its resources, or to exterminate the "pests" that are currently destroying it, so that they could use it for themselves, or just to preserve it for a race that doesn't bite the hand that feeds it.

If aliens ever came I hope they annihilate mankind for being a planet destroying species lacking any intelligence.

This planet deserves better than us.

Better than us? Turds or flowers alike we're a composition of this planet (even if UFOs had something to do with it)--maybe we're still here is because our purpose is to alter Earth's environment and we haven't managed to outlive our welcome yet(?).

I'm not grandiose enough to suggest that my actions can assure betterment of any planet or person for that matter. I have to agree with the late George Carlin on this point, "We shouldn't be worried about saving the Earth; we should be worried about saving ourselves from the Earth!"

In that aspect, networking with aliens probably wouldn't hurt. I just find it disconcerting that pseudo-governmental bodies will be our representatives.

"Earth must prepare..."

I find it... well, 'cute'... how the stereotype is still that aliens = evil invaders.

Great piece - there are 4 strands of the message being pushed:

1) Small revelations of recent events - eg Roswell, and the various leaks over time

2) MSM pieces which are priming the agenda amongst the literati - eg the various pieces in the Guardian

3) "Respected" organisations giving credence to the likelihood of events
The Papal Advisors:
The UN:

4) Hollywood preempting things - many films in the past but then get a whole bunch coming through this year

The end result is the population being made desensitised to the idea of aliens. Moreover, when false flag revelations are made in the near future, the population is accepting of the idea. From the PTB perspective, this results in the population becoming accepting the response of the NWO to the events - ie control and a phony war before the REAL thing happens.

The best thing is that .... THE GOOD GUYS ARE ALREADY HERE.

And the end result is that the Negatives are going to get their anatomical appendages SHELLACKED as our good non Alien friend Barry has found to his cost...

Love, Light and THE UNIVERSE
