Seriously, I'm not a religious person, but I wouldn't follow the directives of an alien anymore than I would follow religious texts. As long as I have faith and remain faithful to myself, then I need no direction form any outside entity or force.

What if they force you to behave like a pet. Like we do with our pets.

There is a huge difference between someone being IQ higher intelligence and someone being emotionally higher intelligence. Chose your reason [God, evolution] but humans are basically pack animals that kill for foods; all of our socialness is inbred to get on with other humans [otherwise we could not hunt as a pack] and we are omnivores [but closer to carnivores].
If the alien was a herbivore, it may have much more intelligence but would have as different set of ethics [no more wrong and no more right than ours]. Likewise a solitary hunter would have a different set of ethics. Could we live with those ethics? Could an intelligent sheep live with our set of ethics? - The answer would be no.
So why should we follow this alien. Superior intelligence means nothingedit on 4-2-2011 by templar knight because: (no reason given)

I think its scary because I think if they did come and started a conversation with us MOST of us would believe/follow them.
Honestly! Sounds like a last ditch effort Satan would pull to get the masses to turn away from their original Creator. Perhaps they always HAVE been here!
Think about THAT!!
