Issues that would arise if aliens came to Earth:

- Aliens would spread their religion and some Earth people would be annoyed. Others would join in
- Humans and Aliens might want to marry and some people would think it's unnatural and should be illegal
- One alien will do something bad and suddenly a group of humans will think all aliens are bad
- Humans will be dissappointed if aliens don't have answers to all of life's mysteries and are generally flawed
- Some humans will be afraid aliens want to install their alien laws here on earth
- Alien history would be taught in schools.
- There would be conspiracy theories that they are not really aliens, but are government something or others
- Some people would kill themselves. Others would want to kill the aliens
- We'll use alien technology for bad things
- Youtube and twitter will crash from all the uploads about aliens
- A world wide national holiday will be added to the calendar to mark the day the aliens came
- Another one will be added if we get into a war with them and win
- Somebody will propose having a reality show about them
- Fashion will adapt to match anything cool they are wearing
- We'll watch Alien tv shows and read alien stories and think they are weird, but cool
- Alien diseases will spread and people will get sick
- I would expect to see "Living with Aliens is communism" signs somewhere
- "Now we can have a REAL miss universe contest" jokes would ensue

Okay I did not expect my list to get this long ..... better just stop now....

Humans are not yet ready to make contact with intelligent aliens, a study suggests.

Most lacked awareness of many aspects of astronomy and their views were coloured by religion.

That's what happens when you include Americans in your survey.

Seraphym: And in an ironic twist, after no longer receiving any intelligent signals on long-wave EM spectrum for thousands of millennia, the peaceful and advanced race of Glieseans will turn off the last of their ancient radio technology in 2028 as they transcend to higher orders of communication


Meh ... we'll catch the next one on the way up. Upwardly transcending intelligent life are like street cars - another one will be along in 20 minutes. And like street cars, life rolls in circles. That's how life rolls.

I try to keep it down, but frankly, it disagrees with me.

Seraphym: Driver: FTFA: A high-powered message sent to the Gliese 581 system, a five-planet solar system 20 light-years away, is due to arrive in 2029.

The Gliese 581 system was discovered/confirmed in September 2010 which means the message shouldn't get there until 2030. Unless SETI has a faster than light radio transmission system.

And in an ironic twist, after no longer receiving any intelligent signals on long-wave EM spectrum for thousands of millennia, the peaceful and advanced race of Glieseans will turn off the last of their ancient radio technology in 2028 as they transcend to higher orders of communication

What would be amazing would be if a craft were to crash-land, get explored, the technology retrofitted and such we'd have a new source of limitless power, and be able to build jet fighters that could turn into giant robot forms is case other aliens were to come to take that crashed ship back.

If aliens from outer space ever come and we show them our civilization and they
make fun of it, we should say we were just kidding, that this isn't really our
civilization, but a gag we hoped they would like. Then we tell them to come
back in twenty years to see our REAL civilization. After that, we start a
crash program of coming up with an impressive new civilization. Either that,
or just shoot down the aliens as they're waving good-bye.

There's nothing "scientific" about a study involving 116 people. To be considered in any way reliable or accurate you have to have a minimum of 1000 people involved.

Not only that, but that's only 38 people per country! You mean to tell me that he couldn't find more than 38 people to participate in each country? Not only is the total number flawed, but clearly the individual locations are flawed as well.

His margin of error is AT LEAST 10 percent, assuming absolutely no sample bias from location.....

I really hate it when "science" like this gets published. Half expected this to be from the Daily Mail, but HP does it a lot as well. Pathetic.
