Stephen Hawking warns against aliens

Recommended Posts

You're assuming that nobody else thinks there is primitive life elsewhere. I was politely calling you ignorant and stupid.

Yea I know what you were calling me. Now I ask where did I say that any if all aliens out there are primitive? I'm saying if we ever come across any, who says they are more intelligent/advanced?

 

Now I'm calling you rude, just a little less politely.

I seriously thought Stephen Hawking died in 2009. Damn rumors & fake news.

 

 

Personally I think it will take aliens thousands of years before they'll hear our broadcasts, so I wouldn't get too worried. Our "domestic" issues are much greater than these intergalactic ones.

To everyone who didn't read the article: Hawking didn't say that aliens were coming to get us; he said that there is a definite possibility of life on other planets. However, the other life could simply be micro-organistic or even so far as our accomplishments (of greater). He said that if it does exist, and that it is better than us technologically/intelliectually, not to contact it because they might end up going sci-fi on our [wagon] and reducing our planet to rubble.

 

This Hawking's humorous (not serious) take on alien life. He made a joke.

the chance of there not being thousands, if not millions of other populated planets among the countless billions upon billions of planets out there amongst our 100 bilion plus galaxies is so stupidly small, it'd be a cruel joke of nature if we're the only advanced biological lifeform out there. the chance of this life having evolved into a form resembling our own is however roughly the same, there are so many minute differences in the evolutionary chain from the single celled organism that life must start out as, its just imposible that many of these worlds have actually evolved a humanoid lifeform that has then survived.

and as for people saying well why would aliens come along and throw us into oblivion for our small, crowded planet, well because the opposite would require morals, and morals are a very human thoght pattern.

To quote a comedian:

 

If they are dumber than us, why would we want to find them?

 

If they are smarter than us, they will find us before we find them.

 

So searching for them = useless.

Actually what I want to know is this:

 

 

Why does everyone think Aliens will be advanced? Serious? What if they are neanderthals essentially? I mean I personally don't believe they exist, however as stated earlier its mathematically possible, it just doesn't coincide with my religion.

 

I mean Stargate offered a reasonable answer, most other aliens didn't have the "dark ages" like we did, so thats why they were more advanced. But I think the odds of them being primordial idiots is to be more likely the case.

Okay, at the really really really fast rate at which technology advances and the huge amount of time a species requires to develop and exist to create a method of interstellar travel, the odds that we humans will be within 10,000 years of their technology, is near zero. It's not actually going to be laser cannons vs. machine guns, it'll be nukes vs. sponges. Us being the sponges. If we come into contact with them, and earth hasn't already been annihilated, yes by the alien deathstar, it's most likely they want us to exist.

 

I remember reading some article which said this, so I just paraphrased it for you.

I was thinking about this... If (today) aliens landed on our planet, what would happen? :unsure: Like would we try to quarantine/study them or try to kill them right away or try to be peaceful or something? >.>

 

Depends on their combat abilities in comparison to ours;

 

Low tech -powerless: District 9

 

High tech - powerful: War of the Worlds

& valid point NICK LOL

And not only the dark ages (not having seen stargate I assume you mean the medieval dark ages), but also the multiple extinction level events in Earth's history, the most recent occuring 65 million years ago. Think about how we could be now if we weren't set back by 65 million years. So really, if you think about it, the odds are better that if a planet has had fewer incidents that wipe out nearly all but the simplist life, they could very well be more advanced than us by a longshot, for at least some alien populations. Others may have had more, ergo they may be less advanced.

I wouldn't agree with that. Humans are an intelligent race, and that is why we have morals.

 

If there are aliens that are just as smart or even smarter, then there is a good chance that they have morals. Especially if they were able to work together to make this advanced technology. In fact, I don't see how any race could advance technologically without some form of morals.

the evolutionary chain/cycle on another planet, solar system, galaxy can possibly have a huge variance of speed faster or even slower than our own.... your post sounds as if it's assuming evolution is only a slow progression as if it were a Constant when in fact there are instances of fast progression of evolution on our own planet

To some of the people who were talking about 100 billion planets, that is most likely not even close to the real number. With at least four hundred billion galaxies that we have seen with a moderate estimate of one hundred billion stars with let's say, three planets each. (This smallish number is to compensate for binary or higher systems of stars, which are much more common than our sun which is in fact a rarity on it's own) That comes out to (400,000,000,000)(100,000,000,000)(3) You can do the math to see the possibilities.

Even if it's a dumb story, telling it changes other people just the slightest little bit, just as living the story changes me. An infinitesimal change. And that infinitesimal change ripples outward-ever smaller but everlasting. I will get forgotten, but the stories will last. And so we all matter-maybe less than a lot, but always more than none.

Yea I know. My mom says that somewhere in the Bible it says God only made Earth for humans. I can't find the verse, so shes probably making [cabbage] up like she usually does. And I know there probably is life out there, but you can't say there are aliens. If you're looking at it from an atheistic stand point, theres actually more proof for God than aliens. IMO.

Kill the peaceful aliens, reverse-engineer their technology, plunder their resources. Rinse and repeat = profit??!

If there are aliens out there, there will be ones much less technologically advanced. However, the ones that do find us will be far more technologically advanced.

 

I'd just rather we avoid them if possible, and if there was contact, it would be to negotiate a mutual agreement so that we can peacefully exist and keep to our own areas.

I don't understand, why couldn't there be God and aliens? I don't think the bible ever says that aliens don't exist.

All that verse says is that this planet was created for us.

 

It doesn't say he didn't create other planets for other lifeforms. Neither does it say it does, but you can't say which is correct without seeing other lifeforms, or asking God.

Never said there couldn't be. All I'm *trying* to say is:

 

Proof for aliens:

Basically the chance of there being no other aliens is so small... Well its like yeah. (lol)

 

Proof for God:

Really gonna not get into this, debating God on off-topic is [developmentally delayed]ed. But for the Christians out there the proof they have is more than "the chance of there not being a god is so "infinitesimal"
