Stephen Hawking warns over making contact with aliens

Mr Hawking says it is ‘perfectly rational’ to believe in aliens

Aliens almost certainly exist but humans should avoid making contact, Professor Stephen Hawking has warned.

In a series for the Discovery Channel the renowned astrophysicist said it was “perfectly rational” to assume intelligent life exists elsewhere.

But he warned that aliens might simply raid Earth for resources, then move on.

“If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn’t turn out well for the Native Americans,” he said.

Prof Hawking thinks that, rather than actively trying to communicate with extra-terrestrials, humans should do everything possible to avoid contact.

He explained: “We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet.”

In the past, probes have been sent into space with engravings of human beings on board and diagrams showing the location of our planet.

Radio beams have been fired into space in the hope of reaching alien civilisations.

Prof Hawking said: “To my mathematical brain, the numbers alone make thinking about aliens perfectly rational.

“The real challenge is to work out what aliens might actually be like.”

The programme envisages numerous alien species including two-legged herbivores and yellow, lizard-like predators.

But Prof Hawking conceded most life elsewhere in the universe is likely to consist of simple microbes.

Opinion:

Well, called.

If the aliens that come here are as much megalomaniacs as we are, but with technology that we don’t have (obvious, because they got here, we didn’t get there) we are not in deep space, we are in deep shit.

His analogy with Europeans arriving in America is very apt.

 

Are Humans the Result of Alien Colonization?

Colonization

Dr. Charles Lineweaver an astronomer, who studied planetary formation, concluded that any other life form in the Universe would probably have had 2 billion years longer to evolve than us, making us the “new kids on the block”.

Some experts have said that using nuclear power, a speed of 1/10th the speed of light could be attained. They say that assuming an intelligent life form, only used this source of power; they could colonize the whole galaxy in a period of 1 – 10 million years.

These facts led to some scientists saying: if aliens existed, we would have seen them by now, we haven’t and so they cannot exist.

Other scientists though, say these facts could support the ancient alien theorists.

Some of these have said that perhaps aliens colonized the Earth and when the inhabitants of Earth started to show signs of intelligence, they moved on. This could account for the reason why we have not seen aliens in recent history but our ancient ancestors did.

Others have theorized that Earth was the subject of alien colonization but over time, as earths inhabitants grew in intelligence the colonizers bred with them. Humans are the result of this mix of DNA, a kind of Creole between Aliens and Earthlings.

Once again, this theory could support the fact that only our ancient ancestors seem to have seen aliens. We only see ourselves and do not see ourselves as aliens.

 

  • Have We Been Visited by Aliens.
    There are many stories of aliens visiting our ancient ancestors. This highlights a couple of them that although they are so well known, are perhaps a little more believable.
Ancient Monuments

Ancient Ancestors

We may never know the answer to the question of whether we had been colonized in our ancient history.

One thing though is certain. The existence of ancient monoliths, temples, pyramids and cities, shows that our ancient ancestors seem to have had advanced technologies or advanced machinery.

The colonization theory could explain this. Also why, the technology does not still exist today.

Our astronauts today know how to fly their spacecraft and also know how to use the machines they take with them. They may even know how to fix some of these. However, I am sure they do not know how to build them, assuming that on whichever planet they landed they had the raw materials to do so.

It is therefore logical to assume that any alien colonizers would only have a certain amount of hardware. Yes, they may have received resupply but as their colonization continued to spread throughout space, these probably became fewer and fewer, eventually coming to an end.

True, we have not yet found any such technology buried among the ruins but then again, depots may not have been marked by pyramids. Besides, for all we know the alien technological machines may have been made of materials that are bio-degradable on Earth.

Whether you believe in ancient aliens or not, you must find it a mystery as to what technology the ancients possessed to be able to build such monuments. You must also wonder as to what happened to that technology.

  • United Nations Appoints Ambassador for Aliens.
    Now that the UN has appointed an Ambassador for Aliens we must ask why? What is it they know that we don’t? What does it mean to our future?
  • Proof of Alien Existence by 2026
    The senior scientist at SETI makes a wager that proof of aliens existence will happen by 2026. How can he be so confident?
  • Aliens Grave Found in Africa
    An alien graveyard has been found in Africa. Once again, as in other similar cases, after one immediate report, secrecy seems to take over. What is it that the authorities do not want us to know and why?
  • Religion and Aliens
    There are many stories of our ancestors being visited by aliens. Is it just a co-incidence that our concepts of religion began during this same period?
  • Will We Be Re-Visited By Aliens.
    Many people are now convinced that we have been visited by aliens at some time in our past. What we should now be asking is: will they return?

ET Phone home!

A question that I have often considered is, “Why are we so fascinated by the stars, what impels us to leave Earth, spending so much money that could be well used here?

My answer is that we are trying to go home.

Maybe ET wasn’t so far wrong; we are trying to phone home.
