UFO sightings warn of alien invasion, states Stephen Hawking who fears SETI’s search

STONEFIELD BEACH, Ore. – The search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) is the collective name for a search for intelligent extraterrestrial life, but famed British scientist Stephen Hawking is warning that the SETI efforts to actively “contact possible intelligent life out there is way too risky and dangerous,” states the new book “First Contact” that also notes how Hawking is convinced “that other higher life forms do exist in the galaxies and would more likely raid Earth for its resources and move on.”

“First Contact: Scientific Breakthroughs in the Hunt for Life Beyond Earth” by Marc Kaufman, the national editor for The Washington Post, is a recently published book that does not dispute alien life but, instead, fears it. In turn, there’s new promise of cracking the extraterrestrial barrier, writes Kaufman, who points to “prominent scientists from NASA to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, from the Carnegie Institution of Washington to Princeton and Cambridge universities, have decided to ignore the giggle factor associated with UFOs and ET and join the quest.”

Moreover, the recently release British government documents -- that number more than 8,500 and include links to tens of thousands of other UFO sighting material – also confirm reports in Federal Bureau of Investigation files that are now available to the public on the Internet with the FBI’s “the Vault,” that also confirms that UFO sightings have been based on real events and facts that were previously put under lock and key to protect the public.

This story is number ten in an occasional series of reports about what the secret British UFO files contain, and what new information these documents reveal.

Alien life found both outside and on the Earth

“In the past 10 years we have found that hundreds of planets orbit distant suns not too different from our own and can reasonably infer that billions more exist,” writes Kaufman in his new book “First Contact.”

“Put all this together and the unavoidable question becomes whether, at bottom, we’re all Martians – quite literally descendants of life from Mars or other planets,” adds Kaufman in his First Contact book’s chapter “The Biggest Discovery of Them All.”

Moreover, the author presents views on what to do when the alien’s reveal themselves in mass and either take on the Earth or simply let it be as aliens have been doing for thousands of years.

“As someone who also advocates in favor of terra-forming Mars as a sanctuary for Earthlings after we ruin the planet, there is a certain irony to Hawking’s views,” writes Kaufman.

In turn, Kaufman references a statement given my Hawking – one of the most respected physicist’s in the world – earlier this year that’s alarming to those who view aliens as possibly friendly.

“We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet,” states Hawking in a statement that was not previously released to the public do to fear it would cause coming from one of the world’s top brains.

“I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonize whatever planets they can reach. If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn’t turn out very well for the Native Americans,” asserted Professor Hawking in his report on why he fears SETI or other contact with alien life.

In turn, the recently released British UFO documents presents numerous references to Hawking’s research on alien life in dozens of the 8,500 previously top secret UFO documents that the British government now feels the public can handle given the breakthroughs in the digital age.

Washington Post reporter digs deep to find the truth

“Marc Kaufman, a world-class reporter whose writing is clear and clean, is just the right author for First Contact. I found this book as thrilling as it is illuminating,” stated a review for the book that’s viewed by Oregon UFO “watchers” here at the popular UFO viewing site at Stonefield Beach as “answering those who fear invasion, but what about aliens who’ve already visited Earth and are still here living in various alien gangs.”

For instance, during recent big blue skies over the Pacific Ocean at Stonefield Beach – that later gave way to “a circle of light” that one local noted as “heaven opening up for another soul,” while others who watched this circle of light said “it’s a sign of reincarnation” from ancient days."

However, such a sighting is not unique given possible visits by UFOs, said Professor Hawking who also noted that heaven “is a fairy story,” in a recent interview.

Professor Hawking is also quoted in London’s “The Guardian” newspaper May 16 that “the notion of alien life is real, but dangerous."

At the same time, there are plenty of locals in this Pacific Northwest who attend reincarnation events where they go into a state of hypnotism to help recall their past lives that are tied to alien “first contact” encounters.

Hawking believes in science over God and is speaking out

Stephen Hawking, 69, has not had an easy life. He was diagnosed with A.L.S. at age 21, reports the London-based newspaper The Guardian May 16 in a report about the famous British physicist’s non-belief in an afterlife after being asked if he feared death.

"I have lived with the prospect of an early death for the last 49 years. I'm not afraid of death, but I'm in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first," he told the newspaper.

"I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven of afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people who are afraid of the dark."

British media analysts noted that Hawking – who many view as a genius in the mold of Albert Einstein – is now going beyond the comments he made about God and no afterlife in his 2010 book, “The Grand Design,” that The Guardian reported as “stirring up passions” with Hacking’s views that “science can explain the universe’s origin without invoking God.”

“Hawking has far outlived most people who have A.L.S., also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, producing important cosmological research and writing books. His A Brief History of Time, published in 1988, has sold more than 9 million copies,” stated The Guardian interview with Hawking a day before Hawking is scheduled to address the question “Why are we here?” at the Google “Zeitgeist” meeting in London where Hawking also warned scientists about SETI research as alerting aliens to Earth as easy pickings.

“In the talk,” according to The Guardian, “Hawking will argue that the tiny fluctuations in the very early universe became the seeds from which galaxies, stars, and ultimately human life emerged from possible alien contact.”

"Science predicts that many different kinds of universe will be spontaneously created out of nothing. It is a matter of chance which we are in," Hawking said.

SETI researchers view alien life as hopefully friendly

The new “First Contact” book also states that the proponents of “active SETI assume that any civilization they would have the good fortune to contact would be harmless and interested in who were are and what we know. There’s no evidence that this is true or false; it’s just what they believe,” writes Kaufman.

In turn, there has been alien found both on Earth and other planets but the various governments have kept such news top secret due to fears that the public would freak out.

“The controversy over a definition for ‘life’ has actually been around for some time, even inside NASA, and it became a serious problem and even embarrassment in 1976 when the agency landed two Viking spacecrafts on Mars in a self-described search for life. To the initial delight of the Viking scientists, a key biology experiment on both Viking landers gave a strong signal that ‘life had been found,” writes Kaufman.

UFO sightings linked to Area 51 while alien speaks out in Salem, Oregon

Also, Journalist Annie Jacobsen told National Public Radio (NPR) in a May 17 interview that the famed “Area 51” has remained classified for many years — “not because of aliens or spaceships, but because the government once used the site for top-secret nuclear testing and weapons development.”

At the same time, the Library of Congress released photos of a known “alien group” or “gang” that called themselves the “Holy and Undivided Trinity of Castle Rising.”

This alleged group of aliens looked like modern witches with their strange hats, but reports in the British UFO files point to several members of this “alien group” – based at one time in Norfolk, England – as still being alive, with some members identified in North America both in the early 20th and 21st centuries.

In “Area 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base,” Jacobsen details “how several agencies — including the Atomic Energy Commission, the Department of Defense and the CIA — once used the site to conduct controversial and secretive research on aircraft and pilot-related projects, including planes that traveled three times faster than the speed of sound and nuclear-propelled, space-based missile launch systems.”

Millions of UFO documents now available to the public

At the same time, both the FBI and British UFO files contain numerous references to Apollo 14 astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell's call for the America to release “all UFO documents in government files and to acknowledge the extraterrestrial presence.” In turn, fellow Mercury Astronaut Gordon Cooper made the same demands 30 years ago, but his recommendations to both the FBI and federal government were simply placed in secret files that are now in the public domain.

For instance, Journalist Annie Jacobsen, in her new bestseller – “Area 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base” – reveals information that was previously classified as top secret by the U.S. military and FBI.

Jacobsen, a reporter for the L.A. Times and Wall Street Journal, whose based in Los Angeles, is created by the New York Times for her reporting on this subject of UFOs that often paints the “messenger” or the reporter as a nut or something trying to “hoax” the public.

"Although this connect-the-dots U.F.O. thesis is only a hasty-sounding addendum to an otherwise straightforward investigative book about aviation and military history, it makes an indelible impression. Area 51 is liable to become best known for sci-fi provocation. But the book is noteworthy for its author’s dogged devotion to her research,” the New York Times stated in a recent review of her book.

Jacobesen writes that Area 51 is: “Seventy-five miles north of Las Vegas sits a land parcel in the middle of the desert. Called Area 51, the parcel is just outside of the abandoned Nevada Test and Training Range, where more than 100 atmospheric bomb tests were conducted in the 1950s. Officially, the U.S. government has never acknowledged the existence of Area 51. Unofficially, it has become a place associated with conspiracy theories, alien landings and tiny spaceships.”

The recently released British UFO documents contain numerous references to Area 51 as America’s most secret domestic military facility.

In turn, Jacobsen writes that the “key to understanding Area 51 is knowing that it sits inside the largest government-controlled land parcel in the United States, the Nevada Test and Training Range. Encompassing 4,687 square miles, this area is just a little smaller than the state of Connecticut — three times the size of Rhode Island, and more than twice as big as Delaware. Set inside this enormous expanse is a smaller parcel of land, 1,350 square miles, called the Nevada Test Site, the only facility like it in the continental United States.

Anyone can read parts of the British files on line

The release of these British UFO documents includes 35 large files that can be viewed at http://ufos.nationalarchives.gov.uk/

It should also be noted that the files are available to download free of charge for one month at this U.K. National Archives website.

I am 53 years old and a survivor of alien abduction. I have always felt that sending out information about our planet was a terrific mistake that will make us vulnerable to anyone intelligent enough to receive it. I am afraid for all of us, and hope that the extraterrestrials picking up our homing signals won't be intolerant of us or see us simply as a food source or a commodity, and since sending vital info about our planet on Voyager many years ago if they have far advanced technology they will come here. There is just so much proof that there are other people here and have been observing us for over a thousand years that it would be rediculous to laugh it all off and dismiss the inevitable. These strangers have been here, and they will come back. We know it, we just do not know what their intentions will be or how to protect ourselves. If you saw the new show on Nat Geo about what we would do it is laughable. Thats all we got to protect ourselves? Then if someone does come and everyone knows it, it is possible that we are doomed. But then again, this is and always has been a very dangerous planet with many dangerous regimes...I pray for peace. On the issue of God, God bless Steven Hawkings. I would be a very bitter person in his position and I know our entire world has been blessed by his presence and his knowledge. Thank You...CC

The fact that you misspelled "ridiculous" makes me doubt your credibility. The fact the author of this article writes: "Jacobsen, a reporter for the L.A.

ET visitation is a reality, not a some probability and there are dozens and dozens of intelligent pilots, government officials and military personnel who will testify to this fact. I don't know if Hawking is dumbing-down what he REALLY thinks, for fear of ridicule, but this is not a hypothetical situation. The above poster, ccynbolynn, makes a very good point: As it stands, if the only real informational tool we citizens have are a few cheesy documentaries on cable (aside from "fringe" news sources)— then that's a problem. Ask yourself, what interest would a government have in admitting alien aircraft are flying our skies with impunity(?) And yet they do.

I would have to disagree with what Hawkings says about aliens wanting to raid and move on because for that fact that there a many planets in between us and them (assuming they are lightyears away) that house the same if not better resources then out planet. Now for food would be understand able but once again many other planets that could harbour life that might be between them and us. But thats just my opinion against one of the smartest men alive. lol

Hawking says: "I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven of afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people who are afraid of the dark." However, I think that Hawking's irrational fears of aliens stem from his primary fear that aliens will be just like us. There is evidence that this is simply not true: If aliens truly wanted to exploit the planet (or we humans) why hasn't such a thing taken place already? What is stopping them? Wouldn't the time to undertake such domination fantasies have been more opportune when we were still hunter-gatherers living in the forest and no threat to technologically advanced folks as we may well be now? Hawking's fears are irrational. His fantasies of alien invasion have no basis in any reality other than our rather sociopathic human one. This stuff is pure paranoid demagoguery from a fellow whose half-baked opinions carry entirely too much weight. These declarations amount to Chicken Little hysteria without the benefit of an inspiring acorn. This is nonsense of the highest order. Too bad so many will mistake it for intellectual manna from heaven. It isn't enough that humanity is myopically poisoning our fragile earthly environment, but now we get presumably hyper-intelligent people poisoning our collective consciousness as well. If you will pardon the irony, God help us....

How do you know that we haven't been contacted who were the entities that the prophets of the Bible and the Koran make a deal with. The Judo-Christo-Islamics fools are hell bent on selling out all life in this solar system to their master or masters whom they have never seen and for the last thousands of years have created the social mess we are in.

I first became a believer in the UFO concept after viewing the video called: Disclosure Project. I've read testimony of two astronauts that stated aliens are very real and have been here on earth for many many years. Nowdays many people have use of videos to capture multi alien activities. The government/NASA have tried to keep Sheeple in the dark for ages. Our government will not risk any type of panic and will stop at nothing to continue our sleep state. More then alien activity is going on right now regarding planet earth! You only have to look around and feel it deep within your heart to know this is true. Since we will not hear what exactly is in our near future for mankind...its up to us to research as much as possible. Mr. Hawkings, Michio Kaku and any other top astro physicist etc will never be straight with us regarding what is really going on. Infact they are probably paid to keep the disinformation flowing full force. The government uses software that is especially convenient to help with debunking the truth. A while ago I had read about an example of this technique on a website called The Raw Story. The article called: 'Revealed: Air Force ordered software to manage army of fake virtual people' is just one example of a pretty good debunking program to confuse the crap outta people. I must say that it' has worked so far! Soon the government/NASA is going to have to dig deep to come up with new ideas as to why all the strange phenomna is coming about. If aliens wanted to take over earth they would of already. Their technology is so far advanced from ours its just silly to think otherwise. Perhaps aliens have a type of council of worlds who keep the peace for mankind. (shrug) Maybe some of the aliens are here to help us with the upcoming event that is about to take place. I guess we will find out soon enough. I feel that we should be able to see some evidence around Sept and Oct of this year. Of course if I'm correct and mankind can see something unusual in the sky then we are talking about mass panic. Money will be usless and so you will not be able to buy any survival supplies. Martial law will be in effect and everyone who has not prepared for this event will be hurded off into the sheeple FEMA camps. I really don't care if people believe me or not. There is an old adage, "Hope for the best and prepare for the worst." What I do know for sure is that we are all connected and how we treat others is of great importance. Hugs to all ♥

"Extraterrestrials are almost certain to exist and humanity should be doing all it that can to avoid any contact" Such a statement reveals that behind a big brain there's sometimes a poor little soul. I respect Stephen Hawking's achievements and his scienific goals are certainly impressive but life in the Universe has very little to do with physics and it's actually more related to antropology and evolution. And when I say evolution I mean spiritual evolution. It's simply unbelievable that a man who based his own career on logics and rationalism elaborates a thesis that is completely illogic and irrational. If "aliens" are much more advanced than us it's simply impossible that they still preserve a selfish instinct. Only 2000 years after the venue of Jesus Christ, human race on this planet is still struggling for land boundaries, killing each other for natural resources and for any other reason both in the third and in the western world. We destroy forests by logging and in Indonesia they are turning a complex ecosystem into agriculture for palm oil plantations.Why? Why humans despite they´re well aware of doing something really bad to their race, keep destroying each other and their own planet in which they live? Because despite what Stephen Hawking and all the scientists in this planet believe, technological evolution IT'S NOT real evolution. The REAL evolution is only of one kind: it's the Spiritual Evolution. "Extraterrestrials",(even this name is inappropriate) are certainly more evolved than us and certainly not only under the technological point of view. They are much more spiritually evolved than us. That's for sure. What Stephen Hawking did with his statement was the most common mistake a human being can make: self-projection. Jacques Lacan, a famous French Psychiatrist of the 50's explained this aspect of human mind very well in his works. In my modest opinion this is one of the most peculiar aspect of human mind, let's say the one that is still pulling ourselves towards the animal instinct rather than our spiritual side. Projecting ourselves, our image, our values (!!!), our experience to portrait something that is outside of ourselves, it's the most Naïve mistake a human can make. It's what separates ourselves from the real evolution. However it seems very strange to me that Mr.Hawking a world famous scientist never heard anything about extraterrestrials. However the first statement he makes on this subject it's a mere assumption without any research in the background. Is it possible he never heard of Dr.Steven Greer and the Disclosure Project?Is is possible he never heard of Dr. Dan Burisch and project Acquarius? Back in 2001 Dr. Steven Greer who represents a panel called "The disclosure Project"that represents more than 500 people who are former NASA employees, scientists,military personnel and ex intelligence officers, they gathered at the National Pres Building in Washington DC and they made a unique statement: being ready to declare under oath that what they testify it's the truth. Among them there are people who worked in rescue teams specialized in retrieving crashed spaceships, people who witnessed flying discs deactivating nuclear missiles.These stories were actually broadcast even in mainstream media, mostly at the Larry King live, (but never on Discovery Channel and on the National Geographic Channel). Usually the mainstream media, portrait extraterrestrials as little green men but there's no major mistake than this. Most extraterrestrials are actually human, just like us, the human race is one of the most ancient in the entire universe and one of the most diffused. Is it possible Mr. Hawking doesn't know anything about all this? I am not surprised of Mr.Hawking's statement though. We are arrived at one point that we cannot keep pretending we are alone in the Universe. Mostly because humanity is becoming more aware and technologically advanced to take a picture of anything in the sky: everyone has a camera, even in his/her cell phone. How can you control such a mass of eyes so focused on taking pictures all over the world? See foreinstance what happened to Jose Escamilla while filming the sky in search of UFOs, he found something that "changed forever the way we accept reality" by discovering the RODS. Rods are a strange phenomenon, they are living creature that fly in the sky at such an impressive speed that regular cameras cannot frame them. In general, the worst attitude ever regarding ourselves, earthlings, it'sour arrogance in affirming we control reality and that we achieved a high level of scientific knowledge. False. Because we reached the moon with an engine that will take light years to reach the nearest star? We should step backward regarding what we know.Rationalism and logics are very very limited conception of knowledge.Because they are the fundamentals upon which we based our scientific achievement it does not mean they are an undefeatable mean of knowledge. Certainly we are aware they re not enough. The self-projection Mr.Hawking made with is statement is really mean and poor. The assumption that extraterrestrials want to exploit our resources is simply stupid. First of all if extraterrestrials wanted to exploit our resources they would had already done it long time ago. There's no need for them to exploit our resources because we are alredy doing it here pretty well in this field. Mr. Hawking statement can be defined as stupid, because was made by a man who adopted the most basic instinct of human being: the animal instinct. Alicia P.Melis, a researcher from Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, in Germany went to Ngamba Island in Uganda to study chimpanzee behavior. In the wild chimps are not in an evolution process because of their selfish attitude, a sort of natural instinct that push them to "exploit" their fellows to achieve food and not to share it. The experiment consisted of two chimps in a cage and food put in front of them outside of the cage. A rope passes along a wood stick where the food is. In order to get the food the chimp needs the help of his fellow. He calls his fellow and they cooperate to get the food. That´s intelligence. However when they get it if this is not enough for both of them, only the alpha fellow between the two get to eat. The second time the food is put on the stick the second fellow do not cooperate because he knows he won´t get any reward. This is where evolution arrests for chimpanzees. That's exactly the same attitude of Dr.Stephen Hawking: the fear that others from somewhere else, would steal our resources drives him to express and project his fear to the unknown. "I imagine they as having used up all the resources from their home planet. they will look to conquer and colonise whatever planets they can reach and raid Earth for its resources" This is our picture Mr. Hawking, you made a perfect portrait of planet earth and its inhabitants. The conclusion is just one: we are missing evolution because of our selfish attitude that keeps us away from it. Make no mistake: it's spiritual evolution involved here. Spiritual evolution start by getting rid of our selfish attitude and entering the awareness that we are all part of a unique system: the universe. Until everyone here on earth will not understand his/her own role in our universe we won't be able to connect to our world in harmony and we won't achieve any evolution, basically we are still chimpanzees. Danny Wallace made a documentary for BBC called "chimps are people too", suggesting the idea that because we share 99% of our dna why we should not consider them as people too. Indeed the title made by Mr. Wallace was simply in the wrong way. It should have been: Humans are chimps too.Why? Because of our selfish attitude and because Mr. Hawking projects this attitude towards an entity he does not know. Pure speculation.That's an aggravating circumstance because it comes from a world famous scientist who, because of this, still demonstrates to keep the instinct of a great ape. Then we can speculate if his statement was a genuine one or it was whispered by someone else, but that's a sport I do not practice.I prefere to keep myself tight to the facts, that's exactly what Mr Hawking did not. Indeed he spaced out projecting his selfish attitude to the unknown, demonstrating a very poor spiritual side. We are part of a universe and those who we know as extraterrestrials are spiritually much more evolved than us. Some might say: what about those who claim to have been abducted by extraterrestrials and as a result of these encounters they got implants? Does it not demonstrate ETs are bad people? Ok what about those veterinarians who take wild animals and implant them with microchips to track them down in order to keep in touch with their movements and keep them in good health? Unfortunately until we won't be able to accept we are part of a greater system called Universe, until we won´t understand from inside and not because of a law that prevent us to commit killings, that life is a holy gift and because of this we would stop killing ourselves and destroy our planet, we won't be able neither to see an "extraterrestrial" Mr. Hawking can indeed sleep very well because he won't be able to meet with any extraterrestrial until he would have abandoned his basic primate instinct of a selfish great ape. Extraterrestrial are evolved beings who do not meet up with killers and selfish people. It's like if Al Gore would decide to have a meeting with a Cobra!!! Unfortunately even if the Universe is really full of life, we are not ready Mr. Hawking, we are not ready to meet up with them and exchanging information or technology because we are considered wild dangerous primates and we are in a sort of quarantine. And we won't get out of it until we stop thinking in a selfish way like wild animals and start to decide to open ourselves to the harmony of the Universe.

I remember attending a lecture in London. It was back in 1997 when I served as a military reporter for European Stars and Stripes. The lecture featured an assistant of Professor Hawking who quoted his boss by stating that "to tackle the secret world of UFOs, we have to develop more unconventional methods." This approach to the subject of understanding UFOs is the method for these recent reports that now number 10 in this series, with more to come. I'm also working on a book based on the Oregon UFO "watchers." Thanks for your interest. Cheers -- Dave Masko

its simple stephen hawking has a fear of the unknown or is paying respects to those who have such a fear i do not have that fear if that makes me more evolved then does stephen hawking speak for me we are being oppressed by people we call our leaders and the idea of friendly ET scares the crap out of the people who control the show and would rather force a war then give up control hoping a good intended ET would stand down but do the people we call leaders speak for us as in do we agree with what they say from a friendly ET stand point our leaders are are holding us hostage if some guy with body armor and a gun kid naps you puts a gun to the back of your head hands you another gun and walks you into a bank and asks you to rub the teller and shot anybody who gets in his way does that make you a killer for doing so well that is what our leaders have done to us but instead they are holding a only very few guns towards a very few people who in turn points few more guns at a allot more people and we are all expected to keep each other in line now it was kinda hard to see this 10 years ago allot of us see it today but from the outside not having to live though this mess its allot clearer and they are not likely to away until this problem is solved because the average everyday person is a good person and we have other problems to deal with and when we are on our knees they will be there to help and the current gov will be brushed aside as we all will agree it did not work our gov has power over us because we respect them rather its due to fear or true respect it does not matter 100 people in a room 1 person with a gun he has control because people respect him now lets say it was 60 wolves will he still end up on top with a simple hand gun no respect no power the hungry wolves will not respect him

It does seem that reaching out is the way that life evolves. The option is to remain a backwater. We must reach out but it's certainly a pity we can't give any visitors a false address a few blocks away and then check them out from a distance. I don't think all alien races would necessarily be spiritually evolved. It's perfectly possible some might be predators. Hopefully others might not be.

Somehow these people leaped out of the gene pool associated with honesty, kindness, compassion and thoughtfulness, into the fire of selfishness and the Star Nation is trying to figure out what the h*ll happened. Maybe by doing a butt probe and an implant they can figure out how humans have gone so far off track - away from their intended nature. Hawking is just another example of too much intellect. Not that intellect is a bad thing. But soon enough all that intellect reaches a point of diminishing return where humans begin to devolve away from innate abilities. Humans learn all this academia and forget their own true power. Such a pity.

I agree. And if people would look back through history and "listen" to the stories told by the old they might learn something. we have never been alone in this universe it even says that in the Bible, God told us that. But people think "God" is a made up joke and that Everything came from NOTHING. Some will never see the truth. and then people like hawkings thinks he knows it all, this is the mindset of man, how sad and how Stupid is this human race.

Although it's likely that advanced races made it beyond war,ego,selfishness to reach a certain level of technology,It doesn't mean they managed to stay there. You can no more claim that they MUST be nice any more then claim that their evil.. As far as we can know they may not have emotion whatsoever. In that case Hawkings could be 1/2 correct in that they use resources that they find without any reguard at all for the creatures living on a world they come accross. Remember, We feel. And much of how we view the universe is by way of what we would like, or hope it would be. Don't confuse human emotion and desires as a nessassary requirement for how the rest of life evolved. We cannot insist that they follow what we think of as "logic". Nor should we assume that they even have an understanding of what we see as right and wrong.

Some one send Hawkings a Guru so that he may finally be freed from his mind.

I read all of those post above and all i have to say is this:Half of this planets 'humans' are 1)no lifers 2)stupid 3)need to be closed into a mental institution 4)infecting the human gene pool with more stupidity and should be castrated. Instead of concerning yourselves with aliens and doomsday scenarios,try to make your lives worth a damn by helping those around you.Our little corner in the galaxy is an improvised,polluted shit hole because we are blaming our problems to and concern ourselves with aliens ghosts and stuff. Take your lazy asses and do something to help yourselves and those around you and stop jizzing your pants with thoughts about aliens.

Hawking worked 1980 at NASA and now he is Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge.This says it all.This view is actually a scare tactic which NASA has intimidate and lied the people for decades with. At Hawking is genius not mean he have to think for others.

i beleive in a god.but i also beleive in aleins.but i do not beleive in Stepehn Hawking for his basic fear of aliens is incorrect as 1. if aliens wanted our resources why would they have not taken them a long time ago, sightings have dated back thousends of years 2.you never know what our goverments do alien contact mey have already hapened

If God did not exist, there would be no order to things on earth and all the way into the galaxies. If Jesus was an alien (and some consider him to be) he was still a good man and powerful in his own right. Where is the mentality of everyone here that abducted or not make them such an outspoken voice on extra terrestrials. These beings have been around since God knows when, if they had wanted to, they would have abolished humanity years ago. The bible spoke of the day of knowledge, and we are here, prophesies have came to pass, and some yet to fulfill but everything God wrote is true, why doubt? If aliens wanted to destroy this earth they would have done it many many years ago. To this date with all of our modern so called technology we would still be powerless in comparison to their knowledge and weapons technology. To this date 2011 we are still fledglings in comparison to them. When and if they decide they want to make an entrance and to let the world know, it will totally be up to them. To them we are still amoebas coming out of the mire. They had a purpose from the beginning of time, and that was to improve humanity as a final goal for some reason. Dating back to the days of the neanderthal in time to them it was like yesterday. They have been manipulating our genes to get us to the point of where we are today, and they are probably sorry that they even bothered, because we don't need an alien invasion for us to see the demise of humanity, we are doing it to our own selves as I write these words. Nuff said.

I find that to be a problem for this reason. UFOs have been around since man started drawing pictures in caves. Had they chosen to do so they would have stripped this earth to its bare essentials without anyone giving them trouble of any sort. The evolution of man has been a guided project by intelligent life other than our own. In scientific terms, man could not have evolved in such a short period of time from the discovery of Lucy's fossil remains to what is modern man today. If left up to time we would still be drawing pictures in a distant cave somewhere. Our genes have been manipulated to bring us to where we are today of that there is no question. The only problem has been that we as a race have been flawed in the sense that we do not and have not taken care of the precious gifts that were given to us. The resources of this earth. We have managed to pollute entire oceans, the air we breath, the land we live in. If that were not bad enough we have exterminated large areas of land for millions of years to come with atomic fallout, with our warfare, greed, and hatred towards our fellow man. We seem to think that we are above the creator now, and dare to match wits with him, and dare to compete with our simple waring implements, to those that are far superior to us. To the aliens we are but slugs crawling out of the mire. They have been around and have been observing us for a very very long time helping us at times. Dare we think that buildings that defy the imagination and abilities of man were done by man alone? How they were built and how they were put together can be all man made? Pyramids all over the globe, artifacts, and pictures that can only be seen from the air? All of the wonders of the world were all man made and erected by man with out some type of help from them? Where they have been patient, we are fool hardy, rash, and aggressive. Mother alien ships have been reported all over this world, had they had a mind to do so, they would have vanquished us in a heartbeat. Our best armament would never equal theirs, but they hold back.They hold back for the reason that they know that we as a race are degressing to the stage of waring mongers, we will implode as a race without them lifting a finger in aggression towards us. Quite the opposite is true, they have left signs everywhere warning us to follow the straight and narrow path but to no avail. We are a failed project that has not passed the tests that have been presented to us. We have chosen war instead of advancement, hate instead of love. The bible talks about 1\3 of the angels in heaven being thrown to earth. The universe being so vast, who is to say how much a 1\3 would be? Perhaps there lies the reason for our failures. Only time will tell what is in store, but I feel that for this earth as we know it, it is to late. We have killed it, and it is on its death throes as I write. For how long before it dies completely is the question. Then they will start over, colonize it, or put an end to this world, where it will be just another lifeless planet circling around until one day it will be swallowed up by a black hole and will be no more.

I believe too much credit is always given to aliens....that they are "waiting" for something before they connect with the Earth. I KNOW nothing. I do not profess to know why, what, when, how, for I do not know. I do not believe any human being CAN know any of these answers. It is a mystery for now. If we do not have answers, than how can we warn others? Time is better spent on self accountability, exploration for the good of others...life is the transition from selfishness to selflessness, time passes with the hope of a spiritually evolved people. Leave the judgment alone, Mr. Hawking may you encounter humility, and with all of your wits not profess to know just by speculating...unless you know more than you are saying. Man's wisdom is foolishness... Peace.
