Stephen Hawking is one of the smartest men on the planet, being the author of many studies who changed the way we saw the Universe. According to him, talking to aliens would be a bad idea. In the new documentary called “Stephen Hawking’s Favorite Places,” the scientist is sharing his opinion regarding aliens.
It seems that he thinks we should not be so rushed in answering back to aliens if we will get a signal from another planet. He fears that the same thing that happened to the Native Americans when they welcomed Christopher Columbus could happen to us. The scientist said that ““We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet”.
Even though he is interested in finding life on other planets, he wants to be cautious and said more times that aliens could not be so friendly we could think they are. When such a smart man is telling us that, it can make you wonder if he is right or not. Of course, there are many people who have the same opinion. If aliens exist, we do not know how smart they are or what plans they have for us. The best way would be to discover them first and study them.
Stephen Hawking thinks that they could exist in massive ships, used all the resources from their planet and now they are trying to find another planet to colonize. This could sound like a science-fiction movie from Hollywood, but the reality is that we do not anything about aliens. Researchers still have to prove that they exist and after that, we could worry about what are we going to do with them.
However, it could be wise not to respond to them in a second. Giving them to the opportunity to come to Earth could put us in major danger. There are a lot of things to discuss before making a decision. Of course, the world leaders will have to decide what to do and we will see if Stephen Hawking is right or not. It would be surprising to find out that we have bigger threats than global warming and that our planet could be colonized by aliens. What do you think? Do aliens exist and t are coming to colonize the Earth?
