If an asteroid were going to hit the Earth, would aliens save us?

If there are really aliens at Area 51 and Dulce, NM, etc., wouldn't they have a vested interest in trying to save the Earth if we were going to be hit with an asteroid casuing a cataclysmic disaster? I would think they would do whatever they could to stop it from happening. Agree?

you never know, but in the past they may have saved us from the odd one or two, i dunno, like destroying them before they hit us.

If it would happen, how could we know it did?

Maybe the ones who weren't celebrating our early demise!!

ahhhh, come on, God isn't gonna let an asteriod hit us!!

He's having too much fun watching us destroy ourselves!!

Trans-stellar beings might have the technology to calculate the orbits decades, maybe centuries ahead of time. If an asteroids path was calculated to strike earth, a simple bump would throw it off by millions of miles. We would never know.

The dinosaurs must have been very boring then.

And I wonder what the trees in Tunguska did to offend Him. Grow?

If I were an alien I wouldn't. Because Earth people do have the
technology to avert the disaster themselves. If they do not..
when they can.. and they all die, then so be it. The freedom of choice
includes that of self termination.

That doesnt make sense. If we dont have the technology to avoid the asteriod, its not exactly freedom of choice for us and thus not self termination.

no aliens wouldn't save us

If an Asteroid was going to destroy Earth they would take care of it before it did. They don't want Earth destroyed it's there laboratory as I said in another thread.

we would probably never know they could have saved us 50 times already, god bless those grey wonders.

If a big rock were heading for earth (what were talking about.. not a
moon sized object) it could be diverted from impact using
thermonuclear bombs to change its' velocity vector. This would
require building rockets to carry the bombs to intercept it, and doing
so far enough from the ETA such that only a small change in vector
would cause it to miss the Earth. Perfectly feasible with exisiting Earth
technology.

If such an impact were pending in the near future the fact that Earth
people, knowing the threat exists, and not being prepared, is de facto
choice of self termination.

Suppose we say no one new any object was going to impact. Is it a
choice then that nothing was done? Hypothetically, no. But with
existing technology any such object could be detected and targeted.
And it would be a choice of self termination knowing the possibility
existed and to not be prepared, when the event actually happens. And
Earth people do have ample evidence that such events have happened
in the past.

If it were a moon sized object.. probably even advanced technology
(alien or not) would not be able to deflect it.

Mockan, but if aliens also share the planet, wouldn't they WANT to save the planet whether humans are helped by it or not? Wouldn't they react for self preservation knowing humans may or may not have the technology available?

I've never been able to find any reason why aliens would
be sharing the planet in any capacity other than as a
limited number of researchers studying.. perhaps.. humans
as an evolving but still primitive life form. Maybe
marginally intelligent. Consider this: Extrapolate present
knowledge to technology advances 50 to 100 years into
our future.. that will include physical immortality, synthetic
intelligence of godlike proportions, the capability of
destroying planets, initiating accelerated nuclear reactions
in stars, and of course the capability of traveling between
points in our space continuum faster than light. Aliens with
interstellar travel would have passed the mentioned level of
technology possibly millions of our years ago. Why would
they be sharing primitive life on this planet with humans?

Valid point! Even if they were here, if disaster was around the corner, they could pack up the kids and the dog and blast off to another watering hole. I didn't think this through very well.

If aliens have been on the Earth for thousands of years either as observers or taking part in some experimentation, they wouldn't want their "project" destroyed, after all the time spent on it, would they?

True, we may never know how many natural disasters they may have averted. But what about a nuclear war... would they intervene if they saw we were on the road to total obliteration?

The answer is YES....

Why? Because they are living here among us, and an asteroid would endanger their living home just as much as ours. They are here to examine this primitive species of animals, called humans, but they want to continue onward, and how are they going to fill the database of their supercomputer, if an asteroid disturbs their work?

It takes nothing for them to destroy a pity asteroid coming ahead of us...

They didn't save the dinosaurs. Hell they haven't even saved us from ourselves.
Maybe they don't care, maybe they aint here.

But they would save themselves, therefore, us...

Anyway, who said that the Earth was really hit by an asteroid? It is not proved. What about that nuclear winter, people call Ice Age?

Ummmm little thing called the Chicxulub crater www.space.com...
Lol do you believe that the Ice-age was a nuclear winter?

"There are three major components of the Earth's orbit about the sun that contribute to changes in our climate. First, the Earth's spin on its axis is wobbly, much like a spinning top that starts to wobble after it slows down. This wobble amounts to a variation of up to 23.5 degrees to either side of the axis. The amount of tilt in the Earth's rotation affects the amount of sunlight striking the different parts of the globe. The greater the tilt, the stronger the difference in seasons (i.e., more tilt equals sharper differences between summer and winter temperatures). The range of motion in the tilt (from left-of-center to right-of-center and back again) takes place over a period of 41,000 years. As a result of a wobble in the Earth's spin, the position of the Earth on its elliptical path changes, relative to the time of year. This phenomenon is called the precession of equinoxes. The cycle of equinox precession takes 23,000 years to complete. In the growth of continental ice sheets, summer temperatures are probably more important than winter. "

Revisionist history is similar to a sci-fi veiw of the future....the sci-fi writer might think his/her vision of the future is futuristic....but it's just another version of the present, seen through the filter we call imagination.
Funny you say that there is no proof for the K-T event, yet you speak of Aliens on Earth as if it were fact.
