We've known that the first thing he did as president was research Area 51 for a long time.

I dont understand why some people think there is this grand conspiracy to hide alien life from the public.

It makes no sense whatsoever.

Governments like to use fear to make their people submit to their whims. If aliens existed and posed a threat you bet your ass some politician would use it to push some stupid law through.

I appreciate dramatic flourish in one's soundbites, but this one is getting really tiresome.  First of all it's the opposite of the truth. Secondly, it's completely meaningless.

C'mon, people.  Bill was just figuring that UFOs would be carrying illegal aliens who could get amnesty.  They always vote Democrat.

Are you saying President Clarke is actually in league with the Shadows and just using the threat posed by them curtail freedoms and shore up his unpopular regime?

There's the sense you were looking for.  Exchange "governments" with "religious leaders" and you have enough of an idea as to why, in the event of alien life being confirmed, a bunch of very powerful people wouldn't want the public to know about it.

On the flipside, why would any responsible person want the entire public to know about it?  Hell, why would the aliens want the public to know about it?  Have you met the public?

Is this starting to make sense to you?

No, not one bit.

1. Aliens being real doesn't discount an existence of god. There is nothing in the bible that contradicts other life in the universe.
2. Governments suck at keeping secrets. If we really were talking to aliens it would have leaked out by now considering that we would have been doing it since the 1940s

If and when we discover intelligent life out among the stars, I believe that psychologically at least, our entire world changes overnight,   Whatever our competing ideologies, religions etc differ on, the suddenly pale in comparison to concept of facing a possibly hostile universe where we are no long obviously the ultimate endgame of evolution.  Nations would not cease to exist overnight and fanatics of all stripes would endure, but, by and large that would be the day when we stopped being American or Chinese or Muslim or Buddhist and just stated being  human

I wasn't giving you reasons why there are alien conspiracies.  I was giving you reasons why people would get the idea that a government would try to hide it from the public.  That was the reasoning you seemed to be having trouble with.

And if you think the major religious and government leaders of the Earth would have no reason to feel threatened by the entire world knowing about a higher power from another planet, you've been smoking toxic chemicals.  The Bible has f*ck-all to do with it, just like always.

I really doubt people would doff their individuality and culture just because Hubble saw some city lights on Planet XJ-12. Wouldn't happen for influenza, world war or zombies--not gonna happen for little green men.

Space exploration, however, won't exist unless it's a globally united effort.

Haven't seen the video but I hope he was joking.  Bill is too smart for "ooga booga aliens".

Right... an extraterrestrial intelligence finds our little corner and magically respects the artificial construct we call government, to the point that no one else ever finds out.

I have no doubt life exists on other planets.  I doubt we will ever visit those planets, that whole speed-of-light speed limit thing that keeps getting in our way; which is also why I doubt any aliens have visited us.  I think if we confined ourselves to a plan to get better acquainted with our own solar system we might find some amazing things out there.  As for Bill, always a pleasure to see him out and about.

I wouldn't be surprised if aliens existed.

I would be surprised if they were close enough to visit.

I assume, perhaps incorrectly, that extinction odds for a species approach zero at a certain point of technology and science advancement though.

Once you get set up in a second solar system you should be good to go I would think.

jwa007: I have no doubt life exists on other planets.  I doubt we will ever visit those planets, that whole speed-of-light speed limit thing that keeps getting in our way; which is also why I doubt any aliens have visited us


Even if you assume another plant has figured out speed of light travel, there are a trillions of planets in our galaxy alone. On top of that our galaxy is something like 13 billion years old. We are one planet out of trillions, and our species has only been around on earth for a small percentage of that 13 billion years, so the odds of people from another planet finding our planet, and finding it during during the window of time when humans have been around has to be pretty much zero.

And even if that did happen, I would assume that a species that has figured out interstellar travel probably has some pretty good stealth technologies, that could make their spaceships essentially invisible. I mean look where we are stealth technology is, and the farthest we have ever sent someone is the moon.

This.

With the universe being essentially infinite, I'd be surprised if intelligent life didn't exist somewhere out there.

I'm very doubtful that they're coming to Earth, mutilating cattle and probing hillbillies.
 
2014-04-03 12:45:59 PM
Actually when it comes to area 51 conspiracies I'm fairly certain that the government originally promoted some of the theories. What better way to hide aircraft testing than having some nutbags swear that it was aliens? One of the first jet plane test pilots flew with a gorilla mask and bowler hat so that nobody would believe the them when they reported the sighting.

Human history tells us again and again that we would not unite in the face of Aliens.  Rather, we would (as we have time and again) merely try to fit them into our existing patterns of alliances and rivalries, to our extreme detriment.

Yeah, most intelligent people wouldn't be surprised to find out that aliens exist. It doesn't mean that they're living among us. Incidentally, the converse is true, it doesn't mean that they AREN'T living among us either. Doesn't matter to me really.

New alien idea:

This time they come from a planet that only has 12 hour days and their year is only 165 days long, so when they are hanging out they get tired all the time and fall asleep a lot. And they grow old super fast while visiting.

not sure if that makes sense but there you go..

"It may be the only way to unite this increasingly divided world of ours ... think about all the differences among people of Earth would seem small if we feel threatened by a space invader," Clinton said.

Actually, it may be different than that. We may unite because our scope has gone from global to celestial. When we have all of these petty borders and divisions and then our new neighbors turn out to be light-years away, our thinking may change, and we may actually put things in a different perspective. For example, what would Moldovia matter when we have solar systems or galaxies in our new view?

Of course, I also wonder what might have happened if we had continents that were closer together and major geographical divisions(such as mountain ranges and deserts) at the fringes? If we didn't have geographic borders in the first place, we may not have started down this road. If all of the people were more or less in the same general area, and there wasn't a lot of different places to go and isolate yourself and declare a "territory", we might have gotten a lot further with our major cultural and scientific advancements.

I remember this from shortly after he was elected.  There was a news story that he'd asked "the powers that be" if we had any aliens or info on UFOs.  He took some flak for it, but that would be one of the first things I'd ask, too.
