If you know anything about history, there have been many more "ample" times for someone that has a difficult time understanding basic human and personal responsibility to wish for intervention from whatever god they want to believe in (or substitute aliens as you have done).
It's all poppycock and ignorant nonsense. Sure, aliens are out there, and may in fact have visited this planet on a limited basis over the billions of years we have been here. But no, they are not waiting in the wings somewhere and are going to pop out and save us from ourselves. That is just silly.
It's called personal responsibility, and the only thing that can save humans from the lack of that understanding is humans themselves. Not god, not religion and not aliens. Jeez.

I think it is more likely that they are just hanging out until we kill ourselves off, rather than try and help us. The SOS went out eons ago. An evolved species probably doesn't want to commit galactic genocide, but I'm sure there is nothing stopping them from letting darwanism take effect.
When we are gone, they get the leftovers...

Before replying to anyone's post, maybe you should get down off your high horse first! "JEEZ"!
