"If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn't turn out well for the Native Americans." That is the thinking of the great British scientist Stephen Hawking.
In a new television series, Hawking said that aliens may exist but mankind should avoid contact with them as the consequences could be devastating for mankind. The warning from Hawking came as he said he believed in aliens but could also imagine them traveling in space looking to conquer other planets for resources after draining their own planet dry.
Now I’m nowhere near as intelligent as Hawking and I will say if you look at human history, he makes prefect sense but I like to think such a doomsday scenario will not come true. There are thousands of galaxies and billions of planets, so chances are there has to be at least one other advance alien civilization out there somewhere but in my mind, these aliens will be different from humans. They may not be walking upright on 2 legs, may not communicate with vocal speech and may not be in need of resources we have.
They are aliens, who know what they will or will not need! If there are aliens out there, I say let’s make contact with them.
