    There is some proof that our own gov. has tried to cover up and hush the whole U.F.O. sightings. So if there is nothing real about them why would our own gov. try to cover it up? Why would they even say anything about it?

    Seriously, I can't think of a single physical or biological resource that would be beyond the ability of a society capable of interstellar travel to manufacture, up to and including habitable worlds.

    I don't think we'd have to fear conquest for our resources if LGM existed. But as there is no evidence that they do, it's probably a moot point.

    If you ever watch Stern there is a woman that he used to have on his show that I have no doubt was abducted or something. Her stories are just to visual and real. Plus others have had same thing happen to them. It is an interesting topic

    Actually nearly all of the sightings come from the Anglosphere, continental Europe, and a few from Mexico. Strangely, the aliens don't seem to visit parts of the world where UFOs aren't already ingrained in pop culture.

    Maybe a local paper occasionally reports that someone claims they saw one. Any newspaper with any credibility would never claim that it was true.

    80% are lying. The other 20% are deluded.

    Because it's ingrained in popular culture. In the Southern US, people claim to see Elvis. In Latin America, people claim to see the Virgin Mary. In England, people claim to see ghosts.

    The people who claim to have been abducted mostly just want attention. I'd liken it to someone who falsely claims they were raped.

    I think they will be fully capable of measuring intelligence, absolutely. We are certainly capable of noting the difference in intelligence between an elephant and a lizard, so I am sure they'll be far more capable than we are of evaluating our level of intelligence.

    But I am trying to see things from the perspective of these creatures that are far more intelligent than we are. If they are enough more intelligent, they won't think there is that much difference between a giraffe and humans. It all depends on how much more intelligent than us they are.

    I believe they will have to be so much more intellegent than we are that they will consider the difference between us and a giraffe inconsequential. From our perspective, that is outrageous. I think they will find our outrage amusing, pat us on our heads and then proceed to dissect us.

    Let me put it this way: Suppose we use some measure, we'll call it the Universal Intelligence Scale or UIS, to gauge intelligence. Suppose giraffes average 25, dogs and cats 35, elephants and dolphins 60 and humans 100. I believe space travelling aliens would measure something like 1000 or more on such a scale. The difference between them and us will entirely outpace the difference between us and giraffes.

    There might be some 'specialist' from among their population that thinks we're interesting at some point. What that specialist does to us in order to study us depends on alot of things, but I doubt they'll be considering whether or not we'll be harmed in the process.

    So, yes, they'll be capable of recognizing intelligent life, and to them, we just won't even be in the running.

    I think I know what you are getting at. Us humans seem to use an intelligents scale to determine if a species qualifies as food or a farmable resource. On an aliens scale we may not have reached high enough and therefor not respected enough and will simply be a farmable resourse for them?

    Re: Will aliens be friendly or hostile?

    The Bad News: Aliens will be tremendously hostile because they only came here because inadvertently SETI has been calling them "dirty glapbroid-suckers" in their language over the past twenty years. This is a terrible insult in the Kracklapo-mow-mow culture.


    The Good News: Their weaponry is specifically designed to kill Silicon-based life forms and will only cause a slightly irritating itch in the back of human throats. The war will be over quite quickly.
