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?
It depends really. Some scientists, philosophers, etc feel that a race intelligent enough to be able to reach us wouldn't necessarily need anything from us, so who knows why they'd want to contact us.
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?
Why would we worship or fight them? If we believe God to be the creator of everything, they would be children of God, just like us, wouldn't they?
Human nature, conspiracy theories, fear, prejudice not to mention greed and power & not everyone believes in God. Do you think an alien race would also be created in God’s image?
If they are like us… then prepare to be invaded!
I believe the Vatican not too long ago released some sort of news that if any evidence came out to prove the existence of extraterrestrial intelligence, that it wouldn't be considered an affront to Catholic belief.
lumen2light. Sure. Afterall, God's image is a perception, not a photo or something. I'm not preaching. Just conversation. But, you are right. I think some of them are disguised as hubbers. I need to read profiles much better. May the blog be with you
I am guessing that no one here has ever watched Ancient Aliens..or gone to the site BibleUFO.com?
My Lady, just checked out the BibleUFO.com, Got to give them credit, looks like they took the interpretation of Bible to the extreme. It’s a bit like interpreting a child’s nightmare to prove the parents need to be lock up!
Ah did you read about the vehicles and the highways and the creatures and all those pages? Too far fetched for you right now. That's OK, it was for me too in the beginning.
lumen2light. I rest my case!
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?
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.
