    Not if they saw us as savages, or not if their research indicated that knowledge of them would affect their research.

    I forget the name of the theory, but it states you cannot observe a phenomena. Once you attempt to observe it, you alter it, even without knowing it.

    Its possible that 1947 was only the first time that civilians had equipment to capture images or radar or whatever.

    It may also be that because of TV media, stuff like that finally had an outlet that reached more people in a shorter amount of time than ever before.

    But where did you hear that about Armstrong? That's the first rumor I've ever heard to that effect. Not to be skeptical but...are you yanking our chain?

    But it is very unlikely we are alone in the universe.

    Bah, lay those advanced technologies on me. I love technological advances and think we are progressing way too slow thanks to corporate greed which makes them release technological advances in smaller increments and higher prices while they skim the market. A more advanced lifeform could give us some amazing, life-altering technologies that would render our corporate-minded civilizations obsolete thereby negating the need for corporate profit.

    I think the most logical thing is to observe and see how the civilization is structured.
    Well, the odds are that vastly advanced extraterrestrial beings have immensely extended lifespans, naturally or via technological means, and therefor have comparatively (to humans) extreme patience. So, they'll probably be observing for far longer than any of us will be around and we'll miss out when their great revelation comes.

    Say, anybody want some of this oddly flavored cherry kool-aid? I hear the aliens like humans that drink this stuff and will take us away from all our troubles and cares and teach us to explore and come to understand the greater universe all around us.

    Come on, Jared. They need us humans to test their anal probes on. Are they supposed to test them on themselves?

    No, they just need Cartman.


    Seriously though. Lets say you are a superior civilization. And lets assume that they don't have or use slavery. You come across a civilization on your travels, that while complex, and made up of relatively intelligent beings, is very far behind your own. What benefit is there? You can't trade because they do not have the capability of transporting themselves or materials the necessary distances, and they cannot use any of your technologies because it is too complex for them to understand. You can't be allies, because again, they are of no help to you. Declaring war does you no good, because you see no strategic advantage to dominating an inferior civilization anyway. And it wouldn;t be war, it would be slaughter. In essence, its like coming across an anthill. I think the most logical thing is to observe and see how the civilization is structured.

    Especially if we are the only other life THEY have encountered! Wouldn't that be wild if Alpha Centauri had an earth like planet with a more advanced civilization, and they stumbled on to us? They found us interesting, but crude, so they observe to see if they can learn about us or about themselves. Like us observing the complex social order of dolphins (we suspect they are intelligent, but we don;t really understand them).

    While I beleive that a majority of UFO sighting are more than likely experimental military aircraft, I do believe that some are unexplainable.


    I think we are not alone in the universe, and it's entirely possible that there is a more advanced civilization out there somewhere. If they got here, they have probably observed enough to know that revealing themselves to us has no benefit to them.
