The former MoD UFO investigator has warned that we would stand no chance whatsoever against hostile extraterrestrials.
One of the most prominent figures in the field of UFO research, Nick Pope famously worked for the British Ministry of Defense from 1991 to 1994 during which time he was tasked with investigating reports of unidentified flying objects to determine whether or not they posed a risk to national security.
In a recent interview with The Sun
, he expressed caution with regard to what might happen should an advanced extraterrestrial civilization decide to make its presence known.
"When European explorers encountered Native Americans, it was guns and horses against bows and arrows," he said. "If we face an alien invasion, it would be stealth fighters against bows and arrows, and even that is understating the technology that they would have."
"Their technology would be indistinguishable from magic. It's almost unimaginable."
"The weapons that an alien civilization may have could wipe out life in a heartbeat."
While Pope admits that there could be plenty of benign align civilizations in the universe, that won't count for anything if we happen to come into contact with a hostile one first.
"It only takes the existence of one super predator species and you're in trouble," he said.
