I have been researching a lot about extraterrestrials and the origin of their existence, but I have not come to a conclusion yet on what their true meaning on this planet is. If somebody can give me some intake of this situation. I would love to hear everybody's opinion on the Aliens origin.

Who knows? What can hypocritical creatures like man say what is evil and what is not?

As for their origins, I think aliens are not from other planets but other realities. Maybe some of them are you or me in a different universe that developed inter dimensional travel.

The question is not so much what we think but what they think.

Here is a link that might answer your question, and make you consider another.

What if E.T. thinks we're evil?

This is true. i have read much about other dimensions and how aliens are sort of a spiritual world traveling being. a.k.a "all knowing" Yet i still don't understand fully what their intentions on Earth are. Perhaps they are here to help man kind evolve through another stage of evolution, or to bring peace to all mankind indefinitely.

What are your intentions when you go to the zoo?

Haha, to look at animals. This is the reason I started this thread, I wanted to know if anybody had the same theories as me. I believe they are observing our natural habits, our water source looking for pollution in the air and figuring out ways they can stop this Planet from becoming a lifeless toxic floating sphere.

Asking the temperament of something the human race isn't even sure exists or not is tough question to answer.

If thier temperament is associated with a particular species then we would have to know which species.

If they are anything like humans, God let's hope not, evil is an individual choice so again we would have to know who we are dealing with.

And if we base it on encounters than we are really screwed because some encounters are friendly some are not...ask Travis Walton or a cow and some are made up.

So the question has to many variables to answer properly which leaves the answers up to individual opinion. How people come about those opinions are as varied as the person, so those aren't likely to offer an accurate answer.

I would use Steven Hawkins approach:


He suggests that aliens might simply raid Earth for its resources and then move on: "We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn't want to meet. I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonise whatever planets they can reach."

He concludes that trying to make contact with alien races is "a little too risky". He said: "If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn't turn out very well for the Native Americans."

Yes but we have to think about how many species are out there, and which ones pose a threat. I do not believe there is one single race of alien and that they are here to help.

If aliens were real and they have been visiting us for an extended period of time, then we would have to assume that they are not friendly. To keep the vast majority of us in the dark would imply deception and secretive practices. Don't give me the 'They won't tell us because we are not ready' line of thinking, this is absurd. Imagine if we were able to travel to distant parts of our galaxy or universe and we came across other intelligent creatures. Would we simply fly around causing mischief and allow them to take the occasional photo or video?

I believe that aliens do exist but they are not creatures from far flung parts of our universe but rather creatures from the spiritual realms. They can phase in and out of our material plane of existence at will and they have a sinister agenda. I have personally suffered more than a dozen attacks in the night from what I can only describe as 'alien creatures'. I have not suffered the complete abduction experience like many others have, possibly because my will is very strong and I refuse to let them take me away. For what it's worth I am now a christian and I have not suffered anymore of these attacks since I was a teenager.

This question has been asked Soooo many times .
How can you judge something that is not human by our standards of good or evil , is a Lion evil because it kills a Lioness's cubs that are not his ? , are Whales evil because they sometimes play tennis with seals they've caught ?
No of course not .

If you cant judge other species that are from our own planet by our moral codes how could we judge if an Alien species is morally good or evil .

I also believe they are from the spirit world, i am also sorry to hear you had bad encounters with these beings, but if you wanna fully understand my perspective on this whole situation please go on netflix and watch these 2 documentaries. "Area 51" & "The Phoenix Lights" I'm sorry i can not post a link due to the fact netflix is not a website i can copy and paste movies. But also why visit earth in the view of thousands of people and not show thereselves and do the evil things that people say they are planning? What's the wait?

Wouldn't we have to judge "them" by our moral code? How could we just them by any other?

Only if they didn't have the ability to think in the abstract as humans can and animals can't. If they weren't able to think in the abstract I don't think we would be encountering them. At least not in the same way.

Since we do have a consciousness that allows us to distinguish good (I like) and bad (I don't like) then I would assume that beings with an intelligence obviously equal or greater than ours would be able to discern the concept as well.

They have the intelligence to visit us through the spirit realms and are able to counteract with us in ways we would not be able to unless we were spiritually intelligent.

The Human concept of good and evil are just that ...our concepts, they are defined by our belief systems and history .
We can judge them by our standards but that doesn't mean they they are either good or evil as they are not part of our culture , its just our definition of something which would probably be totally alien to them .

Haha, indeed, but what are you stating?

You bring up a lot of points on these boards that give me pause for reflection, honorable Gortex, but on this one I don't think you could use the word "probably" in your hypothesis.

Probably, they would be able to discern the difference, for example, in the case of "abductions" if they are real. It would seem to me that even animals know it's "bad" when they are held against their will. Unless these "aliens" are immune to physical or psychic (emotional) pain then it would seem more likely that they do understand the concept.

Of course we both are talking "ifs," so...??

Perhaps they do know the difference between good and bad, and maybe, like us, they decide to turn a blind eye as and when it suits them.

I mean abducting something from it's habitat and performing observations and/or experiments on it is wrong right?
Yet we do it all the time.... it's called vivisection.
We do it, because we consider it in 'our best interests' because we consider ourselves, 'above' the animals, because we are superior in intellect.
Assuming (and I'm not) aliens exist, and are travelling millions of miles to our planet to observe and/or abduct us, they could also consider us inferior.
So good Vs evil isn't really an issue for them is it?
It's in their best interests....

So what you are saying is it's their choice to be evil or not? I'm not really following..
