Do you want contact?

May 17, 2015
People are always looking for and reaching out for aliens to visit us, but do you really want contact between the human race and another alien race?

I don't think there should be contact as you don't know what could come about it and I doubt it be any good.

Initiating contact when we can barely take care of our own business does seem rather foolish indeed. That will never stop the curiosity, of course. But searching/observation is one matter; actually attempting to communicate is quite another. It’s something that needs to be carefully thought through.

Maybe the aliens will feel sorry for us, and then help us out. They will be baffled how can these irrational humans manage to accomplish anything, and then maybe they will help us. On the other hand, the aliens might think these humans are extremely irrational, we don't want them to get any form of intersellar travel, we better knock these humans to the stone age.

We have already screwed up our own planet pretty bad, so the aliens will probably be worried we will go to their planet and screw it up also.

Am I the only one who thinks the human race would be incredibly embarrassed if we did manage to make contact with aliens, and they thought we needed their help? I wonder if it would hurt our pride enough to start an interstellar war…

In the second case, I like to think they’d be more inclined to leave us alone than attempt to destroy us. We already do such a good job of it ourselves, it seems like they’d be content to let us continue down that path on our own.

I once found a sticker that is claimed to mean that it's a alien friend house. I put it on my window and when my wife saw it and I explained what it was she freaked out and made me remove it LOL. I think alien have to be friendly and super smart, I'd love contact yes, not abduction though!! ?
