The panel was held on January 23, and was a “main plenary” session meaning all GCF participants were able to attend and hear what the experts had to say about UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Up to 1000 participants included business and political elites such as former British and Canadian Prime Ministers, Tony Blair and Jean Chretien; Jim Albaugh, President and CEO of Boeing; Andy Bird, chairman of Walt Disney International; Jared Cohen, Director of Google ideas, and many others. The advice they got was that the issue of extraterrestrial life is real, and they better start paying attention to the business implications. Here’s how the GCF summarized the panel presentations on its website:

I kinda think that maybe if this real that we(Earth) may just be a backwater planet. Probably similar to a gas station on a rarely traveled road, or more probably like a small inhabited island, hardly even noticed by the rest of the world in the 1930's.
The rest of the universe (if it has alien life) probably doesn't even notice us.
LOL Imagine these business leaders as the chiefs of the tribe on this hardly noticed island, discussing what they will do the next time the peace core, or Army Core of Engineers comes to visit.
Take Palau for instance. A similar thing happened there. And now, after seperating themselves from US Territories, they are simply a Tourist destination.
Is Earth destined to be a Galactic Tourist destination?

sorry....the mention of the Qu'ran made it lose credibility for me.
earthbound religion has no place with ET, methinks!
There is a large amount of speculation that most if not all terrestrial religions are embellished and misunderstood accounts of early ET visitation; the visitors were remembered and worshipped as gods because of the helpful and logical messages that they preached as well as the technology they were capable of manufacturing (they could fly fffs).
There are also those that will have you believe the arabic language is extra terrestrial in origin.
The quote "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic" rings true here, and certainly would have 2000 years ago.
I'm not saying I subscribe to these beliefs, however should ET life be proven true I think the referencing to the qur'an is easily justified. Food for thought.

to me we have to solve the quran issue..
its like they are promoting it as a global religion...did anyone noticed that for ATS sake?
This is how crazy and crap the World we live in is now.
There are now more Muslims in the UK than Christians!
Yes, looks like the good old Church Of England is toast and Muppets are planning on taking over.
They have just built a HUGE Mosque in Leamington Spa, Warkshire, UK. It's looks like Windsor Castle gone wrong and has been whitewashed in paint. An absolute eyesore and stands out a mile, right next to car garages and shops.
Now when we wanted to build a Church over in their territory, we were told very quickly to fu** off!
Something is wrong here.
How come the teachers name on the classroom door in my 5 year old Daughter School is spelt in Urdo, then Hindu and finally English, in England?
How come the Muslim kids kids special menus for school dinners and they are free when we have to pay for our crappy stuff?
Just beam me off this planet asap!!!

They were told flying saucers are real, and they had better start thinking about the business implications of extraterrestrial life and technologies.

Unless she was " teaching " them how to use gamestorming methods, to reveal the truth to the foolish public, they say these methods are very close to NLP and are claimed to have very deep rooted effects. Perhaps they need us to " know " what we have to gain by contact, so that we accept it as a stepping stone to better things.

Possibly one of the most important stories of 2011, and it's not even February yet!
I am amazed at some of the negative responses in this thread. To my mind, this conference and the effective 'announcement' it facilitated are staggering, and will have a massive impact on what we see and hear via our media outlets over the next 12 months.
Im not, it sno suprise to see the Non beleivers (mainly religous people) Pounce on anything with a slight bit of credibilty.
God knows what will happen if the goverment announces official contact
