The possibilities and consequences of such a discovery have been discussed at the World Economic Forum.

Prominent business leaders and politicians met for the annual conference to discuss potential risks and issues that may crop up in the near future including a list of five 'X Factor' items that represent dangers that can sneak up on us. One of these items is the possible consequences of the discovery that we are not alone in the universe, a revelation that could have a profound effect on society.

"In 10 years' time, we may have evidence not only that Earth is not unique, but also that life exists elsewhere in the universe," states the WEF Global Risks report for 2013. "The discovery of even simple life would fuel speculation about the existence of other intelligent beings and challenge many assumptions that underpin human philosophy and religion."

"The discovery of alien life or Earth-like planets and the implications to the world was a crucial item on the agenda at the annual World Economic Forum, or WEF, in Davos, Switzerland."

I suppose I never should have underestimated the ability of Earthmen to give their total undivided attention to whatever ****s are on the market; anywhere at all in the cosmos.

Damn straight. It's not just us either, we are just as popular as anyone. They come here for our women too, even if they aren't slave girls and not green.

Society will benefit , greatly, beacause the truth will be the agenda. The truth = royal shame. The more truth we know, the more shame attaches to royalty. So it is only royalty, who's monopoly is religion, will be affraid. Hence them feeding us nonsense such as war of the worlds. They demonize everything to do with external life. We give this family all the power they want - *SNIP*
