That we know of :P We could be being watched, the same way we watch wildlife. ;)

I don't believe in the Loch Ness monster, but I do like reading about it. It's kind of like reading that weird conspiracy theory, simply because it's interesting. Or am I the only one that does that?

toom- google 'Does Your Wolpertinger Linger?'. They made it cute.




That would mean alians are us alike with searching entertainment. I would think here more practical. If there would be an alian race that is able to tragen to different solar systems they would have a good reason for this.

If we take our self as example they are suffering like us with searching for resources and overpopulation. As an space traveler you have to take what is available and earth is the only Planet we know with air, liquid water and maybe an unlimited buffet.

There's always the need to explore, to know, to find out.

Maybe we are being watched, as a lesser civilization, out of pure curiosity.

Or maybe as an all you can eat buffet. Who knows?

If we would become Lunch i am asking myself would we germans just get prepared in an traditionel way served with an good beer, would americans become fastfood and would you be hungry again 2 hours after eating asian?

Than the english would be the only Nation that will be spared after our alian overlords find out about mint sauce and toast with warm beans and cucumber :sick: :laugh:

No, the English would be fish and chips. The Welsh would be eaten with leeks, the Scottish as haggis, and the Irish with Guinness, a punch to the face, and potatoes.

Us Aussies would probably be pies with a side of chips.

It's the Maori's that'd be spared, because no one messes with them.

Isn't that from War of the Worlds? :-)

The biggest problem I have is that if aliens are travelling long distances then how on earth are they doing it? Obviously we are basing a lot of our beliefs on our own technology. Who knows how advanced an alien race that our millions of years in front of us could be? Obviously things like time travel is virtually impossible as far as we know, but in 10 million years time it may be possible. Having said that, I think that time travel would be completely wrong as even the slightest interference in the past could cause massive ripples.

So how are aliens travelling these long distances? This is the biggest problem I have in believing that they are coming here on a regular basis. Some people suggest that there is a massive mothership travelling through space, however I'm pretty sure that it would have been spotted by now.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

Actually not really. The only way for us to look into space is pictures taken from space probes, Satellites or electonic telescopes where you need a source of Light in the background.

So if an massive alian mothership is as example somewhere around Saturn we would not know it if there is no probe doing random pictures or an telescopes is not watching saturn and looking for something like an alian mothership.

Another way would be localizing them via Radio waves but what is they don't interact with each other his way?

We are more or less blind till they would be around the moon or already in earth airspace. But at least we all would be save for first than in theory New York City would be first :D

The universe is estimated to be 14.6 billion years old, and have 100 trillion stars. I can't imagine with numbers like that, that there are not at least 2 or 3 civilizations that have a little better handle on physics and a technology edge over we humans. Our biologist trek across the globe(at great expense), and descend into the ocean depths trying to catalog and understand the species of our planet. I think it is quite possible that ET would check us out purely out of curiosity since we do the same. In the past a trans Atlantic voyage took months, now you get on a plane and arrive with some cramps ad fatigue in around 10hrs. If I had the cash, I could be talking to Toom, or Penn face to face tomorrow at this time. If you think about the advances in a couple of hundred years by mankind, then concluding that another race which has been around for millions would be able to get here does not seem far fetched.

That is the point rob, if you got the money to afford this. Many humans think without the meaning of money anything would be fine but still we have costs on anything we do to maintain our society.
Even if an alian race is already an step beyond and acts like an insect collective anything has his price. They need an sheer endless supply of resources and energy to visit us.
Here it would need an economically factor to travel from Planet to Planet or even more from star to star. This means they will have an purpose to do this most likley end of resources or overpopulation, the same problems we also have to deal with. That alone makes at least for me an simple visit to just say "hello there" kind of impossible.

Kind of confusing that i for sure believe that there are maybe thousends of civilisations around us but so long nobody is able to bend the meaning of time that an single journey would not need years if you can travel with the speed of Light is kind of frustrating. But here i am more an realist as an dreamer. Here i would say its much more likley we are able to clone dinosaurs before we will discovering intelligent live or vice versa.

Another interesting theory not not where is more when. Humanity in its momently Form of existence is how old? Several thousend years? I mean before we get to the era of space traveling we was more animal as human living in caves and hunting with stones and sticks. Since we reached the era of nuclear warfare we was more than one time before an exterminal nuclear war (cold war) we just could wiped our self from the Planet or like in the case of dinosaurs an global killer like an asteroid, super vulcano, ice time, magnetic field crash, dying Star just could wipe us away.

For example Venus could have been an earthlike planet for several Million years with live like here on earth but baked crispy with 1000 and more degrees celsius even most kind of Rock will melt and any sign of live would be gone without a single trace.
If this will happen to earth and in say 500 years alians will find this planet nothing will remain of us and they would never know.
