Hi.... I know its kind of early.... but can't sleep.
Was websurfing around when I saw this little articular - http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/blog-post/1602771/don-contact-aliens-stephen-hawking.
THEORETICAL PHYSICIST Stephen Hawking said he believes aliens do exist, if you do the math, but humans might not want to meet them.
The Times reports that Professor Hawking suggests in his latest documentary that aliens do exist. But the bad news, given our own historical record when encountering indigenous peoples, is that they probably won't come in peace.
"To my mathematical brain, the numbers alone make thinking about aliens perfectly rational," he said. "The real challenge is to work out what aliens might actually be like."
But Hawking doesn't think we should be trying to contact aliens.
"If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn't turn out very well for the Native Americans."
Hawking said it's probably best to avoid contact where possible to avoid being used as food or having earth's resources drained.
“We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet," he observed
So, the poll is in 2 part -
*Do you believe in Intelligent Life from outer space....
*Shoulde we 'Contect' them....
Myself.... I do believe that there is 'Intelligent Life' beyond our planet/solar system.... with billions of stars, which are 'Sun', its kind of impossible for us to be alone. And yes.... I also agree with Dr Hawking.... Won't want to bet on the more powerful species (them) taking 'care' of the weaker ones (us).....
What do you think ??
