Stephen Hawking has made a major blunder when it comes to addressing the alien possibility. Maybe he has been watching too many “Independents Day” reruns. Dr. Hawking warns the populace of the world not to make ourselves known out there in the Universe or we may be very sorry. Steven goes on to imagine a planet of marauders attacking other planets to replace their own depleted resources. Because, of course, it was Stephen Hawking who made the statement, the whole counter scientific argument of “it’s too far to get here from there” is forgotten by the media, at least for a time. So it was all over the media who of course sensationalized it.
But does this argument hold any validity?
Does a species far advanced of us have to attack a world to get what they need? If you were in need of minerals and other materials why would you have to go to a world with complex life and destroy it? Why not just mine the moons. There are eight or nine planets around our sun and many moons around those planets. Not only is there an abundance of minerals on those bodies, but also ,it seems, water. Attacking a planet with 8 billion souls may be harder than it appears. When America went into Baghdad we had all our guns blasting. Our air superiority was second to none of this planet. But once we planted boots on the ground to mop up, we had the same problems we had in any war like this, a long drawn out struggle.
There is no doubt any Extra Terrestrial who managed star travel could destroy us in many ways…but would they have to? Using Mr. Hawking concept wouldn’t it be better to secretly use our world as a launching pad to excavate the moons and planets of our solar system. This could easily be done without undue suspicion from the locals, especially if they still lived a constant species centric existence. Any arguments that ETs couldn’t get away with this are laid to rest by credible reports of UFO craft over a mile in diameter hovering silently over various parts of our planet, never to be challenged. They are not challenged because they give no reason to be challenged. What we know now, from government released classified documents, is that when UFOs were challenged it was always a no- win situation for our pilots. There seems to be a common sense policy in place for all the governments: The governments know they only have a finite number of times they can chase UFOs they cannot catch. That is where we seem to be right now. Unless a UFO makes a nuisance of itself it is left alone.
Could an alien presence go undetected by our top scientists? When the smartest minds on our planet say it’s close to impossible for UFOs to be spacecraft, it becomes a rule in science. Even a monstrous evil ET could spot this and could use it very effectively without the need for violence. When you start to think about any ETs destroying whole planets of intelligent species from star to star you find an unstoppable message that is delivered which precludes any species from doing just that.
Of course the planet that you destroy gets the message but so does other intelligent species in the neighborhood who have star travel. How stupid would these other ETS have to be to ignore the potential wolves at their virtual doorstep?
Stephen Hawking could be accused of other short sightedness when he makes these proclamations. He assumes the materials we consider most important will be what they consider most important ten thousand years from now. I am sorry but the ET reports indicate they may feel the important material to gather is not outside our bodies but inside it. In this case, if you were gathering biological gold destroying a civilization would be crazy. In fact eventual contact may be necessary as the world progresses to discover you.
Think about that. Even now corporations are copyrighting biological material. How important will this material be in a hundred years, a thousand years or even a million? The report from the abductees seems to indicate exactly what ETs are doing here; collecting the very essence of us.
Are there other worlds that will buy these biological products or is the product an absolute necessity for survival and has to be gathered? Life is rarer than minerals and water and if they are here I would bet it’s about life.
It seems Stephen hasn’t really thought this through. Humans are not the template to judge other species actions in the Universe; especially if you are considering an advanced ET. I think we can all admit being hoodwinked by someone much smarter than you is not a disgrace.
Total destruction of a planet is so over the top now as to be ridiculous, and if you think about it, the reported ETs do not, in any way, reflect this idea. What we find seems a much more intelligent and complex being. We find them gathering material from us. We find them at times conditioning us to a presence. We find they are quick to run away and not fight. We find very little evidence of the great weapons we envisioned in our star war science fiction. We find a humbler ET not going out of their way to control us. We find ETs which are not here to save the world either. What is so striking about all this is that when you get into the detail s of reported ET actions and abductions they are not like anything we had imagine., maybe that is because they are real
Stephen Hawking is the one of the best minds our world has ever produced, however there seems to be brighter and wiser minds out there… who prevailed.
