I'm upset right now! I just turned on the t.v. to find this program, When Aliens Attack, on the National Geographic Channel.
Yes, it's been out there for a couple of years now, but this is the first time I've seen it.

This is how the government plants fear into people's mind about outside life visiting us using the media.

This is friggin' ridiculous, IMO!

The narrator even speaks with a negative, sinister tone about them, piling on all the negative effect the show can muster!!

Yeah, they COULD be coming to take over the world, but shouldn't we find out what their motives are before we attack them? And, yes, if they are under our attack, they're probably going to fight back. Wouldn't you?

Not all of them are bad, with evil intentions for us. Some want to help us.

It's brain-washing, people! Pure and simple by our beloved government. They don't want us to accept that the aliens could be coming to help us! That would mean their loss of control over us!

Oh man! I hope everyone sees what's going on here... how these movies are planting ideas into the public's mind!

I'm pissed!!!

I don't understand why you're so upset over it? It's based on a hypothetical situation. Hypothetically speaking, there could be some completely sentient robot civilization out there that wiped out their creators and is in the business of consuming planets for resources and self replication. Think borg, or The Matrix.

You can guarantee the U.S government has contingency plans in place for such a scenario, so what is so sinister about discussing it? Could there be "space brothers" out there? Sure. But the chances are just as high that there are malevolent forces somewhere in the universe too.

In the end the show is just discussing a hypothetical scenario and not really suggesting that the world shoot first and ask questions later if we ever encounter an alien civilization.

If they are watching us they will understand never ever ever to try and come in peace and make contact (Even If they are nice aliens) why? just read this thread which sickened me and proved to me we just aint worth meeting them.

As I said in my OP, I'm sure there are some bad aliens out there. Yes, it's good to be prepared. But this is showing the worst case scenario FIRST. This is the picture that will surface to people's mind first, if we ever have a visitation.
The fear will set in, panic, confusion, people grabbing their guns, etc.

Why not show one on how wonderful it could be if we are visited by others who come to help us? Let that one sink in? No, the government won't allow it. They want people to distrust them.

I understand completely and agree with you. I see or read about our media or government doing this with everything; everything they can get their hands on.
I really think the good ones got our world started for us; helped us out in ways.
Our government has to ruin everything!
And like you said.... they use the negative speaking tone, negative music, dark scenes, blaa blaa blaa.
I've never hit anyone in my life but I'd love to punch someone responsible for this BS.

Thanks. I gave you a S&F for the title alone.


I'll read over it when I have more time, and nothing on my stomach that could come up.

You are over simplifying that theory to a very large degree. But I don't wish to derail this thread so I'll just say this: Hypothetically speaking, If a real life flesh and blood alien civilization starts vaporizing people without warning with fricken laser beams from their fricken heads, the majority of people aren't going to be thinking "zomg demons!" they'll be picking up whatever primitive weapons they have to fight back.

There are probably more docs out there about "space brothers" than the alternative. Or at least in my experience. I can't count how many shows I've watched where they recount tales of benevolent aliens curing people of cancer during abductions or showing people visions about how they need to take better care of the planet.

There is just as much hippy space brother crap out there as there is malevolent alien stuff (if not more). At the end of the day both scenarios are equally plausible so it seems reasonable to me to discuss either at some length.

I had a UFO shoot a beam at me, right on me, back in the spring. It didn't vaporize me.

I actually felt they were communicating with me, saying "Hi, we see you looking at us." I felt no fear at all. I felt they were playing with me.

It may very well be ridiculous to you, but, from a perspective of Psychology, species we know on earth that are predators are by far the smartest in the animal kingdom.

Extending that out into speculative xenobiology, we should expect a higher likelihood of meeting aliens whom have evolved from a predator.
How such may have shaped any resulting civilization is additional speculation, but, evolution from a predator ancestor is something worthy of consideration and caution as it applies to any scenario involving contact with a new species.

Further, an even higher likelihood for encountering Alien Intelligence lies in making contact with Artificial Intelligence Machines, either resulted from self directed evolution with origins in biology, as creations of a parent biological species, and/or as creations that have long outlived their progenitors and have self evolved into an entirely new civilization.

Machines should also give us pause in consideration that we don't really have a true model for AI machine interaction.
Suffice to say, however, most scenarios modelled on what we can speculate on regarding contact with AI Machines have a higher probability of playing out in ways that result in our extinction.

All this love and light and hug a brother alien stuff is an illusion perpetuated by the New Age cult mentality that's attached itself to the UFO phenomenon in building a marshmallow soft friendly alien mythology, that, in itself could be considered rather conspicuously suspicious if taken in terms of 'fattening up' and 'domesticating' the cattle.

All in all, as nice as it would be to make contact with Vulcans, or Some TV Personality Photogenic Friendly Aliens, the likelihood, if contact is ever made, is higher probability for either a non-threat event as in discovering the remains of a dead civilization somewhere, or bumping into space travellers that will be just as opportunistic, hostile, and deceptive as we are, if not more so.

One doesn't leave their planet or point of origin if the point of origin is perfect. Leaving 'home' typically involves a reason beyond just exploration and satisfaction of ambiguous curiosity.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

This hype is to get us used to, and spread the idea of being attacked by Aliens. You see once the world wises up to the fact most if not all terrorism is government sponsored one way or another, their going to need a new boogie man.

So Alf and Mork better split


As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

Let's see, the history channel has shows like Bigfoot hunters and ufo hunters. Not sure what channel has ghost hunters. Why these shows are on history is beyond me. Now the show your talking about would be boring as sin if it wasn't for the scary undertone. Just listen to the background music on the above shows.

Ratings? I'm just saying...

*In all honesty, I think these are highly entertaining, but there is a theme and it's all doom porn...

PS, I just watched "Evacuate Earth" good times - oh and have we all forgotten the "Zombie Apocalypse" episode? Yup...

This isn't the history channel, it's the National Geographic Channel.
