Hawking warns of alien invasion threat

Stephen Hawking has said that any attempt to contact extraterrestrial life could be dangerous.

In his new book "First Contact", Marc Kaufman cites Hawking's comments to help him explore in detail the less common view that reaching out to contact an intelligent extraterrestrial civilization could prove disasterous and that doing so could constitute an invite for them to come to our planet and plunder all our natural resources.

"Stephen Hawking is warning that the SETI efforts to actively “contact possible intelligent life out there is way too risky and dangerous,” states the new book “First Contact” that also notes how Hawking is convinced “that other higher life forms do exist in the galaxies and would more likely raid Earth for its resources and move on."

Watching people like Bassett throw their little fits about the Truth Embargo has become comical to me. He really gets worked up too, like he's saving the world or something. I just don't get it. I can't help but laugh. I feel the same way. My favorite is Greer and his Free Energy claims.

Wish they would hurry already and plunder our land.........................least we would have confirmation! I love your attitude/sarcasm! I have been thinking about what Hawking "allegedly" stated about the dangers of "Contact". I have come to determine one of three things: 1. Hawking is an idiot (I.E.) they must already know we are here and there is nothing we could do to stop them, if they are that advanced. 2. He has become a tool for the "Elitists" who want to keep and accelerate "economic slavery system" on this planet. 3. He does not speak for himself (New World Tool), or was taken comp... [More]

I don't think the one's that have already been here are much of a threat, at least not at this time. That doesn't mean that there aren't others that wouldn't have a problem wiping us out or using us as food.

Wow, has this thread degenerated. It always surprises me to see people say Hawking is a fool, and then type that he is a tool of the elitists. I looked for a face-palm pic, but could not find one large, nor magnificent enough to suit the current situation. Yes, these are the people calling Hawking a fool. Ironic isn't it! Most cannot even read well enough to determine when he is speculating or offering a serious hypothesis, but I suspect his intelligence is so high that such simply all collectively zooms over said heads. At FTL too. Gracious ET could sure be forgiven for mistaking earth as hav... [More]

Don't worry... if they want to eat humans, they'll probably just clone us in vats or something. OTOH feral humans might make good pets. Very trainable!

Granted, the arrival of "aliens" to our world could mean trouble. But, also could mean positive things.. The analogy of this planet being used for resources "depletion", is a possibility, if it's like most sci-fi movies. Fear is a belief maker for sure. I for one, believe that if and when they come, they will greet us as a strange group of life-forms. Cautious and curious. Now maybe they already know of us, and are here to possibly teach us new and amazing things? Throughout the memory of time, we have been told, and have read numerous accounts of visitations by beings from the heavens who hav... [More]

I always thought it was dumb to try and send signals out and put information about us on deep space probes. Look at how evil our government are now. Imagine how evil an ultra advanced civilization might be because the power would go to their head. It's rather slim that any government or race would be some enlightened peaceful entity. It's foolish to broadcast our location to the Universe.
