Pope said aliens would come in a spirit of warmth, friendship and shared learning, but the government was also prepared for the worst scenarios such as alien attack and invasion.

The "warmth, friendship and shared learning" sounds great...the invasion stuff not so much.

If this goes down I sure hope ET is friendly. :unsure2:

Nah, it's London - no alien with ny brain would invade Lonodon, the Doctor's got it covered.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Not to worry Lilly "the government was also prepared for the worst case scenarios" :whistle:

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

Right...and the government is going to do exactly *what* to a race of beings that have the technology to travese the vastness of the universe?  Let's just hope they're friendly and that we don't have anything they want.

Mr. P seems as adept at siezing any oportunity he can to get into the Papers as that Kardashian person. He's usually famous for being Baffled; now he seems to be confident that they would come in a spirit of warmth, friendship and shared learning. Is he trying to let us know that there something he Knows that we don't , :unsure2: or is he talking, as i suspect might be the case, Flannel?

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

Actually I'm kinda hoping they at least wait till after the opening ceremony - messing with that would not be cool.

Has the Pope got a new book coming out then?

And exactly what makes him a UFO expert?    Maybe he should close his legs and give his mouth a chance :)

By working for years at the MOD UFO division.  He was the top man there for years.  Seems to have a level head to me and knows what he is talking about.

Next thing he will blabber about Galactic federation...

Has there been much UFO activity around any of the other Olympics? If not, I can't see why London would be so special.

Pope was on the MoD UFO desk for quite a while, he isn't just some guy spouting off...  

Having said that, the only reason I can perceive UFO sightings to increase during the Olympics is because no doubt the met police will have a couple of their new toys flying around in the air...  Also the simple maths, more people in London = more sightings.

Don't worry, if a starship buzzes London during the Olympics I promise I'll let you know.
