No no no, you got it all wrong. Clearly aliens would only visit the USA.

Unless you have personally saw something that looked like a UFO, like many things, seeing is believing... then I understand why so many people don't believe.

Many years ago we had a pretty close up experience with what we believe was a UFO. There were at least 10 cars parked along the road and watching it. Very large round disc that floated up and made no sound at all. Could have been some experimental aircraft I guess. But I have yet to see anyone making anything similar nearly 30 years later.

I believe in UFOs - that's Unidentified Flying Objects. What are they? Where are they from? Who knows - they're unidentified.

About 30 years ago I was in a campground and noticed some lights moving up in the sky. They would sit still for awhile and then suddenly move across about 120° of my vision within a couple of seconds to another spot and sit for awhile. It was more than one light doing this, and they appeared to move independently of each other, almost randomly. This went on for about 20 minutes and a buddy was with me seeing the same thing, so I know it wasn't some kind of hallucination on my side.

Have no explanation, but couldn't help but think that no plane or jet that I was familiar with would have the capability of accelerating that quickly, traveling across the sky in a matter of seconds and then stop as quickly. Nor can I imagine the human body being able to withstand such forces during acceleration and deceleration.

To this day I have no idea what it was, nor have I read any reports or news stories about any such phenomenon. shruggy

I tried to watch it, but switched over to a video about how to properly rake leaves. It was actually more entertaining.

Spoiler alert!- bags with draw string ties are crucial.

We should all hope there's no such thing as extraterrestrial life that's capable of visiting earth flying in UFOs. The Europeans came to North American and found Indians. How did that work out for the Indians? If there are extraterrestrial beings flying UFOs around earth it's unlikely they will view humans as a superior life form.

That's Hawking's view. Possible, but not much we can do about it if true. But it could also be that a far more technically advanced alien culture is more ethically advanced as well. We might become pampered pets instead of abused slaves. Or just left alone and observed to see if we survive our own misadventures.

Saturn Run is an entertaining read about first contact.

Ascribing human motivations to alien species is futile.

It didn't work out bad for the Indians in the long run. Now they have houses, cars, medicine, and can buy their food in a store. That's an easier life than they had before. If aliens can cure our ilnesses, and improve our lives, why wouldn't we want to interact with them?

My sisters, identical twins, told me they saw a UFO once about 30 years ago. It was moving away a little slowly, then whoosh, gone in a flash. I just kind of shrugged it off...but the way they have acted over the past years has convinced me they told the truth. So, I said to them a while back “ I believe you saw a UFO, but it wasn’t unidentified. It had just dropped both of you off and was hauling azz back to the home planet!!!”

*This is coming from a Canadian perspective where the treatment of our native people was/is absolutely horrific…*
Uhm…
Having their land stolen?
Having many of their family slaughtered?
Having their children abducted?
Having their way of life slowly eradicated?
Living in poverty?
etc.
Those things aren't good. I think that was the point he was trying to make.

Now these two arguments are making the assumption aliens that would visit are either friendly and helpful, or malicious and destructive. We have no clue what would motivate aliens. The could bring diseases that would wipe us out, that may be as simple for them as the common cold. Not every integration could be positive nor every interaction negative. It's such a wide open prospect, that it should probably be approached with caution.

And that is unique to this particular group of conquered people how?

It's not. Just another victim card being played and that game is now over.

That's like telling a rape victim Hey, you're ugly, but at least you got laid. Reservations generally suck.
