I found this to be quite interesting but I don't know what to think of it.... here is the source http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/36769422/ns/technology_and_science-space/


LONDON - British physicist Stephen Hawkingsays aliens are out there, but it could be too dangerous for humans to interact with extraterrestrial life.

Hawking claims in a new documentary titled "Into the Universe With Stephen Hawking" that intelligent alien life forms almost certainly exist — but warns that communicating with them could be "too risky."

"We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet," Hawking said. "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 colonize whatever planets they can reach.”

The 68-year-old scientist said a visit by extraterrestrials to Earth might well be like Christopher Columbus arriving in the Americas, "which didn't turn out very well for the Native Americans."

He speculated that most extraterrestrial lifewould be similar to microbes, or small animals. Microbial life might exist far beneath the Martian surface, where liquid water is thought to trickle through the rock. Marine creatures might also conceivably live in huge oceans of water beneath a miles-thick layer of ice on Europa, a moon of Jupiter.

But if a scientific census could be extended beyond our solar system to the rest of the Milky Way and beyond, the odds in favor of life's existence rise dramatically, Hawking said.

"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."

Hawking said an attack by interstellar predators is just one of the dismaying possibilities in the search for intelligent life beyond Earth. Another possibility is that intelligence itself might be inimical to life. Hawking pointed out that humanity has put itself on the edge of its own destruction by creating nuclear bombs and other weapons of mass destruction.


Searching for E.T.'s area code
As tantalizing as the prospect of life on Mars is, the Red Planet isn’t the only place where alien organisms may lurk.
"If the same holds for intelligent aliens, then they might not last long," he said. "Perhaps they all blow themselves up soon after they discover that E=mc2. If civilizations take billions of years to evolve, only to vanish virtually overnight, then sadly we've next to no chance of hearing from them."

Hawking has become one of the world's best-known scientists — not just because of his theoretical work on cosmology and black holes, but also because he has achieved so much while coping with a paralyzing neural disease for most of his life. In recent years he has become a prominent advocate for space travel, contending that humans must journey into the heavens and going through zero-gravity training himself.

"Into the Universe With Stephen Hawking" had its television premiere in the United States on the Discovery Channel on Sunday, and is due for broadcast in Britain next month.

Its an opinion and you don't know for sure. Plus I'd take Steven Hawkings opinion over your's any day.

Lol. Well obviously you will because he is a scientist I'm not. But several other people have proved him wrong already.

You are foolish to shun the possibility of other life out there. Think about it every one of those stars out there could be a sun to another planet like earth. Don't sit there and down someone when the possibility is very real. The odds of them having the capabilities to get to our planet are probably not good but it doesn't mean they don't exist.

Who has proved him wrong? We don't have the capability to explore all that much of space. We can only get so far.

There are definitely aliens. Space is too big for us to be the only life in the universe.
There are definitely NOT aliens who know we're here, let alone could get to us. Space, as they say, is big. Since faster-than-light travel and teleportation are impossible, it would take tens (at best) to a hundred thousand (within our galaxy) years to reach us.

It's interesting because it's exactly what humans would do. Remember the colonies--people explored new territories, enslaved populations, and pillaged for resources.

Well First.....thiis isnt an opinion it a fact: The possiblilty of life anywhere outside of earth and beyond is majorly gigantic. IF theres a google amount of planets and galaxies out there then how could not even one have life? we do....which brings me to Rob. thinking that there isnt is ridiculous.

It's irrational to me but considering that we've even came remotely close to the speed of lite lead's me to believe that it is.

It sounds like a really bad weapon....imagine if people can travel time and fuck things up in your past or future.

Wow, really people? >.>

Edit: The Bible makes it clear that God created the Earth to be inhabited only..

So no, there is no such thing as extra terrestrial life.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are many who claim that extraterrestrial life exists throughout the universe, and therefore they claim that the Bible must be discredited as a result, due to its implications that physical life was created for the first time on planet earth.

From a Christian perspective however, the stars and galaxies would be inhabited by angels, both standing and fallen angels, however physical beings such as humans and animals would NOT have been CREATED on other worlds. For according to the Bible , it was God's plan to CREATE man first on EARTH and no where else. That is, planet earth being the "cradle" of all physical life. Yet, as some have said, does one necessarily remain in the "cradle" forever?

So then, if there ARE human or animal beings living on other planets, then according to Christian thought they would HAVE to have ultimately been descended from Adam and Eve, or from one of the many animal species that Jehovah originally created and placed in the Garden of Eden.

But does this mean that human beings do NOT exist on other worlds? No, it simply means that IF THEY DO exist, then they would ultimately have descended from Adam-Eve, or more realistically from the descendants of Noah, for before the flood there may not have been a visible cosmos to aim towards, but rather a thick canopy of watery vapor. In other words, no visible stars and thus no visible goal for potential "ancient astronauts" to set their "sights" on.

The antediluvians were, therefore, probably more interested in exploring INNER SPACE than OUTER SPACE. Another scriptural reference stating that the ARK contained ALL of the PHYSICAL life in the universe [at least until that physical life spread once again throughout the world and -- some believe -- throughout the stars] can be found in Genesis chapter 6, vs. 17: "..even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy ALL FLESH, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven."

Take note of the words "ALL FLESH".

Now of course this will not set well with those who are adamant in believing that the universe is one big accident, those who resist the thought that an Infinite "God" is fully in charge of the universe, its creation, development, and destiny. Many people, whether due of self-deifying thoughts and/or out of fear of being accountable to a perfect, infinite being, will reject the belief in an Infinite and perfect being who is -- in spite of the fact that humans are bestowed with free agency -- nevertheless in full control even though "God" has given the creation the power to CHOOSE between the perfect plan of the Almighty, or our own imperfect plans.


This is all. Smile

Nice info Beth i agree with some stuff and disagree with some stuff. Plus i have gone through many religious bouts and discussions. I am not even gonna try to argue between Science and Religion. It pointless to do, they can never mix, just choose one and live your life..simple. Im sure someones going to argue about what you wrote though lol.

I agree and I know that, but I don't care. I still believe what I want to believe and I always will. And they can to. But that doesn't mean I can't state my opinion right? We all have different ones anyways in our own minds... I'm not trying to start any arguements, I was just putting some more info out there other than just "theories". I said what I wanted and that's all I'm going to say. So carry on.
