If you were an alien observing the human race, would you make your presence known?


If aliens had travelled through space to observe life on Earth, one would assume that they would have superior intelligence. Putting yourself in their position, would you actually make yourself known to us, or would you avoid contact?

    Observation is one thing, but don’t you think that if an alien race were to make itself known to us they would want more than just to save us from ourselves?

    Very true, but as with comment to Copper Man; an alien presence could undermine the human religious basis, would we worship them as a new God, of fight them in the name of God?

    I agree, we can dream about alien life, but we as a race are not ready to accept their existence.

    My Lady, I totally agree, we as a race still have a lot to learn. Only when we can learn to work with nature and our own race, instead of manipulating and modifying it to suit our needs will we be anywhere near being ready to accept Alien life forms.

    But if you revealed yourself my alien friend, don’t you think that, through the media, you would become an overnight news event across the world? Then what? And what would the humans do to you?

    Well put, do you think we would persecute the alien, or would the alien be treated like a God? If the latter, what would that do to religion?
