    The third and least most likely thing will be that they find us interesting after all, will respect our life and become benevolent friends.
    If you consider our attitude toward life forms that are below us in the natural order, and consider our position below aliens in the natural order, my conclusions are compelling. We naturally conclude that the experience of animals in this existence is insignificant compared to our own, and aliens will most likely conclude the same when comparing theirs to ours.

    I would like to hear if it's yes or no or we are alone from you and logical reasons.
    The aliens I have met have been friendly, but they are getting pretty uppity as a group. Demanding our wealth, our services and our citizenship.

    Protesting en masse in our streets with our Stars and Bars flying upside down and underneath foreign flags.

    So... friendly or not; I don't know how to categorize these aliens. They seem to fit into two categories: Individually they seem tame, but as a group they behave exactly like... American Socialists... Liberals... Democrats.

    Which brings us to the next question on the philosophical train:

    Are Liberals aliens too?

    I would say yes, and with that it answers your question.
    Individually you can sit at the dinner table with them and give them metal utensils without fearing your life will be in jeopardy. They cause no harm when isolated.
    As a group... aliens are hostile and irrational.

    No way man. You must look at the creatures with the highest intelligence. (well maybe besides humans)
    How often do elephants and dolphins kill compared to snakes and ants? (assuming you are not talking about causing the death of plants... but you can't expect an elephant to evolve through technology and extra-intelligence itself outside of our views of the animal kingdom to make itself even more nondestructive)

    Does this prove furtherance of evolution?

    Unless aliens are bug like or just not bound to individualism and stuck to a hive like misguided conscious that guided all its actions through most self chosen means. Example would be a alien AI system that wiped out its creators and found us one day and was hell bent on subjugating all biolife.

    Sounds like a follow up story to The Physics of Immortality but penned by Stephen King.

    Re: Will aliens be friendly or hostile?

    I can only reply to this question from a human perspective, which may be primitive and inaccurate.

    Any species capable of interstellar flight would have had to have conquered many tests in their society that could risk their self-destruction. They would have to be socially and technologically advanced which would require cooperation and knowledge beyond our comprehension. If other intelligent species do exist, then this means that life is probably very common, in which case we can assume there is probably more than one sentient race out there... in which case, after 1 species learning to cooperate and learn within their own society, they also have to learn to live in an intergalactic arrangement of other species.

    Secondly, if they have interstellar capabilities then at least some have already charted our solar system, in which case they know what is here. Any race capable of travelling the stars is many, many stages ahead of us, so far ahead that we would only maybe be of interest to the specialists among their races: resource gatherers, researchers, explorers, etc. It would make no sense for them to bring an entire civilization here, we just aren't that important. After charting the system, they would send specialists who have an interest, or simply not care at all.

    And lastly... the only reason why any of them would want to make contact with us would be for their own self-interest. We are not advanced enough to offer them anything special, and frankly, human governments would just want to get to know them so that they could get the edge on other humans. We are still very much a tribal species concerned about power, selfishness, and protection of our immediate communities; any alien species coming here would have advanced far beyond those basic needs since they aren't confined to one planet anymore and therefore fighting over turf is meaningless.

    It would make much more sense for them to just observe us, but not get involved. We are too primitive.

    Re: Will aliens be friendly or hostile?

    Aliens are definitely hostile.

    Look at the damage the Democrats have done so far.

    On another note, the mere fact that this planet has abundant quantities of coal, petroleum, various metal ores, and other natural resources is a very strong indication that no space faring species has visited this planet since life crawled onto land.
