    Would the World Unite Against a Hostile Alien Invasion?

    Lets say that theoretically, a hostile extraterrestrial invasion happens. How would the world fight them? Would our current enemies and rivals unite with us to help combat the aliens?

    On a side note, what do you think would have happend if aliens invaded during WWII?

    Re: Would the World Unite Against a Hostile Alien Invasion?

    I don't think ancient enemies would unite for any reason. The US and much of Europe would unite but not much beyond that. There would be too much confusion and fear the aliens were in league with the other side. Meaning the Chinese or the Muslims or the Indians would think the West was working with the aliens and vise versa.

    During WW2 all sides would figure it was the other guy in joint effort with the aliens. No real uniting then either.

    But who really knows? All I can think is any entity able to travel through space from another world would kick our collective backsides with one tentacle (or arm?) tied behind its back. We would be a cakewalk for such a force. Many bright scientists who have touched on this subject all agree a contact between worlds would not go well for earth. Think of the Europeans as they found new worlds. They used and destroyed every human force they met with superior technology. Same thing would probably happen if space ships landed here. This from fellows much smarter than me or us.

    I agree with OT, the only thing of significance I can add is that we'll all have to learn another language

    Re: Would the World Unite Against a Hostile Alien Invasion?

    first I'd have to say when speaking of
    Aliens from other Planets
    "Hostile Alien Invasion",
    even "Hostile Alien"
    Sound to me like these words don't fit
    together. In order to be that far advanced,
    Hostility shouldn't even be in their Brains.

    Unless attacked On their trip here

    Odds are They would either be
    completly War proofed by now.

    Or so lost to the possibility of being Harmed
    Earthlings would probably be able to kill
    them with a punch.

    as they would all be Stephen Hawking's

    Only using their Brains
    Which many on earth Don't even Use enough
    to prove they have.

    My guess earthlings traveling the universe
    to explore over many years,
    Would Kill each other, over
    Food, Jealousy, Personal Property, Station
    in Life, Etc. Long before reaching the first star.

    Jeff, it was Stephen Hawking's chief among the scientists who warned we should not seek contact. I could not think of his name until you mentioned it. All I think of is a brilliant Englishman in a chair when I think of Hawking's - couldn't conjure the name.

    LOL I Forgot his name also
    I Googled: history of time

    Don't remember why he said we shouldn't

    But it wouldn't surprise me if
    it was for fear of how We would React.

    Or that we couldn't handle what we would learn
    & Destroy ourselves with the Advances
    we would learn before we understood how to use them.

    Look what we first thought of when
    learning to Split an Atom.

    Re: Would the World Unite Against a Hostile Alien Invasion?

    It was Hawking's who made the comparison between aliens and European explorers in the New World. I only stole his thoughts. (I do this often - if you are going to steal good ideas, steal from the best)

    Hawking's really thought the efforts of some to send radio waves into deep space to make contact was a bad idea. He tends to think we'd be destroyed by such contact. Either by being made slaves, having our water taken or other resources, or being used as a food source. Like cattle in a pen. Very cheery fellow that Hawking's

    I Guess I Don't think like He does



    He suggests that aliens might simply raid Earth for its resources and then move on: "We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn't want to meet. I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonise whatever planets they can reach."

    Which only Reinforces my personal Belief
    of what our Planets people have on their minds.

    And although it is possible, it is also possible
    they may think Very different then us.

    on the whole scheme of things
    this planet may not have "intelligent life"
    if intelligent means
    believing it's "something we wouldn't want to meet"

    Then you best start quoting me ASAP I'll get their Rosetta Stone CD and learn the language in no time flat. They will need someone like me to direct the lambs to the slaughter

    Heck, I may even write them a good cookbook.

    Re: Would the World Unite Against a Hostile Alien Invasion?

    If you suspend disbelief for a moment and take the main themes from UFOlogy then you would know that there are nine alien races we have encountered on Earth and a total of well over a hundred known to exist. These range from the 'guardian' type to the somewhat exploitative (in league with gov't, etc.) to the downright mean.

    If so, then it is somewhat like the world; you cannot invade a country without the possibility of other countries joining in. I believe that, if they wanted to, they could cause ourselves or our own devices to cause our destruction. I do not think they would, however.

    If you think about it you realize that, as far as resources go, space is chock full of them and, with zero gravity, you can move and process them easily. No, what would interest them about Earth is life; that is the rarity in the universe. Depending upon galactic politics (or whatever system they utilize), we could be in for many different scenarios, but I think that, if anything happens, it will hopefully be in the form of a 'wake-up call' or a 'welcome to the galaxy' message.

    They could even use our own religions and myths against us...they could probably do a pretty good rendition of the return of Jesus, for instance. Fun to think about, if nothing else.

    Re: Would the World Unite Against a Hostile Alien Invasion?

    Beep, I love this topic. Hawking's tend to think our appeal to aliens would be H2O. Water in an unfrozen state. This is a rare thing in what part of the universe we can see. This leads many to believe it's rare everywhere throughout the cosmos because of how homogenous is the distributions of elements everywhere.

    If there is one thing I'd like to see before I die it would be an authentic alien spacecraft landing and making contact. That would be a gas!!! Hopefully I'd be old enough at the time so that if they wanted to eat us I'd not be out too many years. But for that one moment, looking at a District 9 like spaceship and prawns, it would be worth it.

    You're all nuts.... They're coming here for the formulas... They want the secret ingredients for Coca-Cola, KFC's spicy batter, Nathan's spicy franks, and most of all Mickey D's "special sauce" to name a few

    Right you are. Fresh unsalinated water we have in plenty, although dwindling rapidly. There have been many reports of alien craft sucking up water from fresh water lakes, etc. The theory is that water is used in the reactions that power the craft.

    A Nobel prize winning physicist I know watched a ship for over an hour with his students while in the field. He's a believer. This is probably as close as I'm going to get to seeing one myself.

    I often wonder if anything we produce or have is a desired commodity on the galactic market. Some of our music, art, inventions, genes, brain chemicals, entire bodies, etc.
