After all, they have written "An Introduction to Planetary Defence", a primer on how humanity can defend itself if little green men wielding death rays show up at our cosmic doorstep.And yes, they're serious.

You know if there were hostile aliens out there and they did not like us I doubt anything we can do will stop them...

But kudos for them for thinking about what to do... Here is my version kept very short...

PANIC!!!!!!!

PANIC!!!!!!!

LOL! Well, that's one way to do it. To be quite honest, it's hard to dermine how everything would go down if an invasion was to occur. They would need to match our technology and better to have an upper-hand, not to mention millions in headcount to overthrow us. Let's not forget War of the Worlds with germs!

Taylor holds advanced degrees in astronomy and physics, and is an associate at consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton. He and Boan have done consulting work for the Defence Department and the U.S. space agency NASA.

But their views have won few audiences outside of science fiction conventions, and their book is published by BrownWalker Press, which specialises in fringe topics and books with titles like "The Science and Lore of the Plant Cell Wall" and "ESP and Psychokinesis"

Well if we were to get invaded and they were hostile dont you think they could destroy the earth from outerspace or do you think they would inslave us all or kill all the men and keep the women.lol

nokidding it gives me the creeps

:innocent: Not to worry, ghost. If they had any reason to invade Earth, they would have done so already. The advanced mental powers of levitation and apports over light-years requires advanced spiritual development. Remember the Prime Directive for Star Trek? Word. BTW, in today's news I see that an Earth-like planet circles Gliese 581, a mere 20 light-years away. Gliese 581 is a red dwarf, M class, not visible with the naked eye. The Earth-like planet enjoys a balmy 68 degree Fahrenheit climate, and its "year" is only 13 days, so it is quite close to the star. This is encouraging news, since about 80% of the stars within 22 light-years radius are red dwarfs. There are no other G2 yellow dwarf singlets within that radius, though recently it has been shown that multi-sun systems could have stable planetary orbits. Star A of Alpha Centauri is a G2 yellow dwarf, about 1.5 times the mass of our sun, with star B about 40 AU away. That would be beyond Neptune.

Dogs are the most effective tool to use against aliens...even a lapdog can protect you...

Let me start by saying “I WANT THIS BOOK!!!” If nothing else to leave it on my desk and say that I am ready for anything!!! Anyone know where I can get the PDF?

I cannot see any race that can travel the vast distance of space be interested in anything that might be on our world or that we would have to offer. Not only would that it be like finding a needle in a hay stack compared to how big is space but also I think would find many more cooler places to show up and check out.

I think I have seen about ever space flick out there where Aliens try to take over our world. So far the only one that I agree with is “Threshold”. Rather than take the time to build up a hug space ship with powerful weapons of mass destruction, why not send a signal out to alter the minds of the things there to take over the world for you so that it is ready when you arrive. The only problem that I have with that show I feel if it did happen it would not be one spot and more like a broad cast over at least ½ the globe.

Anyhow if they did show up yelling “Take us to your leader!” I do not think there is much any of us could do. Most people would die in a panic ether killing them self like they did when War of the Worlds was broad casted, or by a mob that figures that they have nothing to lose. As the band Gorillaz said in one of its songs “What will you do when the law is lawless".

why would they have invaded already? in the past we weren't a threat to the rest of the universe. With tech advancing as fast as it is it may only be now or soon before we're a threat.

who says mental powers of levitation and means of travel require advanced spiritual development ? how about just advanced brain use and development no connection to anything spiritual , good old fashion evolving ? I don't think the prime directive means anything to anyone except trekkies.

Before you book your flight to the possibly habitable planet, which astronomers have named 581 c, there are a few caveats: Anyone sitting on the planet would get heavier quickly, and birthdays would add up fast since it orbits its star every 13 days. Gravity on 581 c is 1.6 times as strong as Earth's so a 150-pound person would feel like 240 pounds. (we'd be moving slow like Uncle Joe at the Junction . ) and the temp isn't set - a guess is 0 degrees to 40 degrees c.(

aside from our water alone -( maybe salt water is hard to come by. )

but with the ease we are supposedly controlled mentally, we'd make great test subjects , slaves . food. kindling.

if there are multiple factions of 'aliens' - be sure not all of them have the greatest of intentions. Just look at man as an example. if they are anything like us - we are up the creek without that paddle.

Right now I don't think that is a very big problem. Just someone trying to make money selling their book. What we have to worry about is invasion of life. The War, and our enemies that want us all dead. In the Middle East. And the weirdos we run into everyday. Is our children safe, from murderers. Are we safe from perverts. So actually, I think the Aliens have invaded in a way. (OUR OWN PEOPLE).

Lt Ripley –

Water? Salt? Come on everyone knows those things are common in space where as Tic-tac’s and velvet paintings of dogs playing poker are rare. That is why you all ways here of the Aliens landing in remote areas, there trying to get Tic-Tac’s and those wonderful paintings. Only to be stopped by a toothless beer drinking hick. OK all kidding aside.

I would agree that maybe raw matter might be a reason to try to take over our world. Considering that the Aliens would have to have smarts to all most if not past the speed of light just to get here to mine the matter and then take it back to their home world. It seems to me that they would also have the smarts to move atoms around to make just about anything they need rather than go way out of their way to get it.

As far as test subjects and slaves shoot we are a little too aggressive and die to fast to be of any use in that area. Now as food you may have a point! This could explane the rash of Mc Donald popping up ever where then who would want to eat something that has been chocking down refried grease for 2/3 of their life.

It is about time we face facts. We are just a grain of sand on the beach of space. About the most we can hope for is our planet to be destroyed to make room for an inter stellar highway. Or one of or flying junk out there p***es someone off and they swat us down like a fly.

I think the biggest mistake is that we think we are important. I have cheep broke mood ring in an envelope locked away in a steal case in my house. It is the first ring that my love gave to me and is worth more than anything to me. This would be trash to any one that would find it but me. As I think we will find with our earth. We will come to discover there are many many other worlds out there just like ours, well with one big difference mankind has not destroyed or junked them up yet. Why take a world that is all ready ½ garbage when you can have a nice shiny new one all your own?

salt common in the universe ? you have a link for that one ? there is a theory salt may be on Io, but it's still a theory. So no everyone does not know salt is common in the universe. if it does turn out to be common so will life .

http://www.astrobio.net/news/print.php?sid=233

as for aggressiveness and short life spans as slaves - they probably , according even in military manuals , have some sort of controlling our mental state - so much for aggressiveness. and 20 years minimum out of a few million is alot of work done if they need manual labor.

Maybe we wouldn't be good food for them ( maybe we would ) maybe it's for reproductive reasons that we work well. a womb would work better than a beaker. Maybe dna , maybe alot of other reasons .

there are plenty of reasons for wanting this planet. the biodiversity , water , minerals. we may have 'junked ' up the planet , but once we are gone , nature will clean it up again. slowly. then it's up for grabs.

:unsure: Do you think we really are a threat to the rest of the universe? We might be if we could get there, but so far we have gotten no further than our moon, a 4 day trip each way. We could send astronauts to Mars, but after a 3 year trip, they would be dead from that much weightlessness as well as dead from cosmic rays. I'm not talking about the Solar Wind. I'm talking about the nuclei of heavy elements accelerated close to C that come from outside the Solar System. We are only protected from that here on Earth by the 10 miles of air over our heads. There has been no progress in space travel technology since the summer of 1969.

:angry: Technology is irrelevant. The star-traveling humanoids who visit us (see The Humanoids don't travel by technology. The theoretical maximum for a rocket would take us to 1/10th the speed of light. After that, adding more propellant would not increase our maximum speed. That would be 200 years to planet 581 c, and 200 years to return. And that takes no account of the previously mentioned problem of weightlessness and cosmic rays, to say nothing of collisions with space rocks.

insurgence type defense? are they stupid?? first of all the only reason the iraqi insurgence is winning the war is because US is not on the path to erradicate ALL iraqis or Muslims.. that will not be the case with the Aliens if they do indeed decide to attack. they won't care if they kill every last one of us humans and rendering us extinct as long as they can take over the planet... if the united states have that same policy of genocide, just shock and awe the whole entire mid-east region untill all people of islamic faith is dead, that way the war will truly be won. this would also be the logic of the aliens. how can there be any insurgency if all humans are rendered extinct??

:rolleyes: You have nothing to fear from UFOs. They are mostly found in remote locations, lightly populated, and they silently glide along close to the ground, below the radar. Most or all contacts have been accidents. For instance, one of the cases presented in detail in The Humanoids tells of an encounter by Professor Johannis (in 1947, just a few weeks after Roswell). This happened in the mountainous province of Friuli, the most NE piece of Italy. Like many Europeans, the Professor was fond of hikes in the mountains. Einstein and his friends liked to do that, BTW. Using his climbing stick, which had an ice pick as the handle, he climbed to a high and deserted valley, where he found a bright red disk stuck in the mountain side. Flying saucers had not yet made the European press, and the Professor was thunderstruck. He saw some boys a little ways off and he ran over to them, shouting incoherently and waving his walking stick. As he came close, he realized to his horror that they weren't boys. They were not of this Earth! They had an earthy green complexion, with lemon green, bulging eyes. They were the size of boys, not very tall. They wore bright blue coveralls, with red cuffs. As Professor Johannis came up to them, spluttering in consternation, they released a gas which partially paralyzed him. They then took his stick. He was able to turn over to see the red disk, which emerged from the cleft in the rocks, undamaged, with an explosion of rocks and boulders. It hovered silently for a moment and then rapidly disappeared into the distance.

:geek: In many ways, this is a typical case. Although he was given a good fright, Professor Johannis was not harmed. There are many instances of people temporarily paralyzed if they appear dangerous, but nothing worse.

:ph34r: One of the things that puzzled the early Ufologists is, "Why don't they make official contact? Why don't they land on the White House Lawn?" If you know anything about anthropology, you will know that such full contact between advanced cultures and primitive cultures often causes the disappearance of the primitive culture. With all their creation myths destroyed, they have not the heart to continue living. Let us suppose the star-traveling humanoids ARE anthropologists. After all, they carry no weapons, and have never attacked a human or an airplane or anything else. Thus, it would be part of their morality to leave the primitive culture alone, while studying it unobtrusively. They are also interested in our flora and fauna and the geology.

:geek: It is hard to define "spiritual evolution" but I would say anthropologists are more evolved than missionaries, though the latter are religious and pious, while the former are not. Missionaries destroy the native culture in their well-intentioned efforts to introduce them to the "true god." Anthropologists and other scientists try to save what they observe, not destroy it.

The Professor Johannis encounter is a chapter in the book The Humanoids, on-line at My Website. The chapter is presented and translated from the Italian by Gordon Creighton, one of the greatest Ufologists so far, long time editor of The Flying Saucer Review.

Hah - I agree with annalaura on this one.

Our greatest shield against alien invasion is Relativity. If Einstein (and Herts, and .. gosh ... lots of others) are correct about the speed of light being an absolute limit, then NO alien civilisation can invade. Even our closest stars are thousands (tens of thousands) of years of travel-time away. And when their fleet of super-duper star-cruisers arrive.. what then ? No doubt they could swat our satellites away, but how do you invade AND CONQUER a planet with a population of around 6 Billion people ? Just how big are these invading spaceships ? How many troopers do they have ?

Silly.

Of course, if the speed of light is NOT a limit, then all bets are off.

Mind you... some of the idea's of spiritual or mental transference/warfare in this post are are interesting. I've ALWAYS wondered about my neighbour....

Aliens can manipulate technology ....that's why they are dangerous...they could infiltrate a nuclear instillation and cause havoc?...

if they truly wanted to invade, they have no need to infiltrate or manipulate our technology....if we were to engage in battle with them, it would be like us brining a knife to a gunfight... they have no plans to take over earth. Indeed, maybe a radical group of them tried in the past, and our ancestors confronted them and called them demons, but eventually they were fought off by another race who wanted to save us, so our ancestors called them God/Gods... so in time, the story changed, details were warped and whatnot nowday you have the devil and God (jesus) the savior.

Yeah...my little fluffy yorkie-poo could take them...She thinks she is a pitbull/alligator mix... you have to give her credit for trying.

(I hope aliens have ankles that a six pound yorkie-poo can get her teeth on)

I'm more afeared of a meteor or comet.If i'm a alien wanted to kill all human i do something fast.Like send one in a collision course to earth let everything die off.Easy and little effort in there part.OR a virus.INVASION OR TECHNOLOGY THAT IS SO BEYOND US THEY DON'T HAVE COME DOWN THEY COULD KILL US IN THE SKY LIKE THE MOVIE INDEPENDENCE DAY OR MEN IN BLACK.I for one hope to god this will ever happen to earth.
