Like his job is to scare people about upcoming invasion...
I don't know why is he so "scared" of invasion by aliens, when we don't know if aliens even "exist".
We "haven't" found aliens, have we?
We don't need to 'find' aliens to purport that they exist.
I hate human arrogancy:
..if we haven't found them, then they don't exist
...if the planet is not like ours, it doesn't have life
...if the planet is farther from its star than we are from ours, its too cold for life; too close to its star, than its too hot for life
When are we going to accept that Earth is not the center of the universe, physically and figuratively?
Plus, even if we have scanned our entire solar system for life, do you realize what percentage that is compared to the rest of the universe???
Aliens may not be interested in us or our planets...we need to accept that...we are not that damn special.
Once people understand the vastness of space, number of galaxies, and distance between the stars, they can finally put things in more accurate
perspective, and realize their true 'place' in the universe.
