    Aliens may destroy humanity to protect other civilisations

    It may not rank as the most compelling reason to curb greenhouse gases, but reducing our emissions might just save humanity from a pre-emptive alien attack, scientists claim.
    Watching from afar, extraterrestrial beings might view changes in Earth's atmosphere as symptomatic of a civilisation growing out of control and take drastic action to keep us from becoming a more serious threat, the researchers explain.

    This highly speculative scenario is one of several described by scientists at Nasa and Pennsylvania State University that, while considered unlikely, they say could play out were humans and alien life to make contact at some point in the future.

    Shawn Domagal-Goldman of Nasa's Planetary Science Division and his colleagues compiled a list of plausible outcomes that could unfold in the aftermath of a close encounter, to help humanity "prepare for actual contact".

    I did not know where to really put this but I felt this forum was best. Frankly now that NASA has been turned into the weather division/Muslim outreach program they have to justify their existence.

    I think this comment to the article says it all:


    INCOMING MESSAGE/////////
    Greetings puny Earthlings... My name is Zorgon of the Zorgonites... And I bring you a great warning: stop intercepting my intergalactic voicemail messages immediately or I shall exploderize your pathetic planet immediately with my megazapper and make you all go splatty with much gruesomeness.

    You have been warned.

He received an A+ for turning in a blank page with only his name at the top.pposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.

    We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us. -Cooper (Interstellar 2014)

    The article's title and tag line:
    Aliens may destroy humanity to protect other civilisations, say scientists
    Rising greenhouse emissions could tip off aliens that we are a rapidly expanding threat, warns a report
    No, the aliens will destroy only the Earth's scientists. It was the scientists that made greenhouse emissions possible in the first place. Don't try to tell me that Joe Sixpack invented the technology that made General Motors, Ford, United States Steel, and the Fortune 500 possible or that made them hum smoothly along. **BigGrin**

    No! Joe Sixpack is innocent and the 's KNOW this and they will spare us regular slobs and peons the Joe Sixpacks of the world, and zero in on the scientists and collect them from around the world and put them into giant Un-Science Machines which will turn them into MacDonald's Hamburger Flippers, High School Grief Counselors, and Sex Therapists.

    The Earth will then, at some point, revert back to the times of Conan The Barbarian and we shall all live happily ever after.

    's are probably cool dudes, regular country people, with Down To Earth Backyard-Attitudes that look down their noses at what comes out of Harvard and MIT.

    What "scientists?"

    Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; they shall prosper that love thee. Psalm 122:6
    Jesus is still King!
    Isn't it funny how so many people think that "science" can do anything and everything, but God (if they even acknowledge His existence) can't do much of anything? - Me

    Please take some time to learn about Autism. 1 in 150 people are diagnosed with some form of Autism. You might be one, and not even know it.


    I have wondered at times what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through the US Congress.
