Richard M. Dolan and Bryce Zabel have published a very interesting book called A.D. : AFTER DISCLOSURE (WHEN THE GOVERNMENT FINALLY REVEALS THE TRUTH ABOUT ALIEN CONTACT).
The book explores the social and political consequences of disclosure by world governments (including that of the United States) that aliens have made contact with Earth. Clearly speculative and steeped in modern post-Roswell UFOlogy the book nonetheless gets the reader thinking and wondering.
So...How do you imagine life in a post-disclosure America?
NOTE: This forum is intended for meaningful and thoughtful conversation about the possibilities associated with disclosure not only the reality of alien life, but the reality of contact with alien life.
Well, for one I think it might do some good. It would probably start a rush to open up space commercially. Jobs, science, you name it would be affected
And I suspect that we are more "ready" for such news than not ready.
I sometimes wonder about recent Vatican encyclicals maintaining, for example, that belief in alien life and/or the fact of alien life are consistent with Christian teaching; that God created a universe with many forms of life and in many places.
It is also interesting that the Vatican Observatory does seek for signs of alien life AND that the Pope's primary astronomer declared (in 2009) that alien life is possible.
Here is some interesting information:

Is there existence of ALIENS? What do you think?
by onthewriteside 10 years ago
Many people of higher intellect, (including ministers and priests), have speculated that so-called biblical "divine encounters" with God or angels were actually encounters with alien life. What's your opinion? Personally, I feel the possibility is much more feasible than that...

What would you think if aliens came to earth and proved that they created human life?I just watched the movie Prometheus recently. I just wanted to know what people thought. If God came and proved Himself to atheists they may change their opinion. What would religious people do if...

I have often wondered if we were to make first contact with an advanced alien race, how would that change the view on religion and God. Religion seems to assume God made the earth and all the creatures on it with humans at the pinnacle of that life. What if we met aliens were were more advanced and...
