On Aliens and Teabaggers

Professor Stephen Hawking recently stated that aliens almost certainly exist and that it is probably unwise for humans to attempt to contact them at this time. Sure, in the context of his Discovery Channel television series such a statement seems innocent enough, but what the smartest man on the planet didn’t foresee was that every news station in the country would rebroadcast his comments to teabaggers.

Hawking’s reasoning is that aliens capable of faster than light travel would probably have been driven to such technology out of necessity; in particular the necessity for resources. If our history is any indication, we could be the next Native Americans to an alien white man. This is certainly sound reasoning and intelligent people should always be skeptical when dealing with unknown beings (be them human or alien). However, we must also reach out and try to make friends with our neighbors (be them human or alien).

I think Hawking takes that for granted. Unfortunately, we have teabaggers who are generally too emotional, superstitious, and fearful to begin with. Making them more afraid of the unknown is probably not the best idea.

What if we did make contact with aliens and they seem friendly. Rational people should still of course be skeptical but not to the point of being unfriendly or undiplomatic. Not too trusting, but trusting enough. Unfortunately, we have religious wackos who might see an alien race as a threat to their belief system. These people (not necessarily mutually exclusive from the teabaggers) tend to already be fearful and don’t really need Dr. Hawking to give them any more reason to pick up their pitchforks and form lynch mobs.

I think there is a middle ground between handing a stranger the keys to the city (or the planet) and chasing them off the planet with pitchforks. Could you imagine a President Sarah Palin having to deal with an alien first contact? Even if those aliens were genuinely friendly, I think we would be at war. Lesson to Dr. Hawking, don’t scare the superstitious.

    HEE! HEE!

    Respectfully to Dr. Hawking, I think his reasoning could indulge in some anthropomorphic assumptions.

    If aliens have the intelligent cognitive capability to develop technologies to travel the stunningly vast distances to visit us (through inquiry in quantum reality and not classical physics), their disposition and incentive may be one of total curiosity and not the least bit colonial or hegemonic.

    Their capability could be such that it would not take much observation to realize that human civilization is still poorly evolved enough that the wealthiest among us fund organizations like ‘Freedomworks’, for the express purpose of easily stirring up fears and hysteria that benefit corporate endeavors in the production of implements of aggression and assault. The alien conclusion could be to never provide enough evidence of their observation to reach such standards as Bayesian probability, or far less for that matter.

      Or their disposition might be one of conquering and destruction, as ours are, if they evolved in a competitive environment as we did. Can you offer statistics and a basis for those statistics, rather than broad speculation?

        It is often claimed “don’t be afraid to ask questions”. But this question reveals a bundle of embarrassments and absurdities. The reader should be afraid to ask questions.

        It should not have to be stated that there are not other living organisms known anywhere that are the equal or superior to human cognitive abilities. To question others about statistics and a basis for statistics where there can be none on matters that are only only a matter of speculation is ridiculous on the face of it.

        For a reader who asks inane and completely nonsensical questions, he seems to have high confidence in the outcome of environmental circumstances that mitigate in favor of human or better cognitive abilities universally. On a universal basis, these assertions are no less speculative than mine.

    Haven’t most teabaggers already been abducted and anal-probed by space aliens? You’d think they’d know better by now.

    Lol. Teabaggers were hilarious to me, when I first heard about them. Then I found out they were serious.

    Maybe the teabaggers are aliens. Anybody think of that?

    You do know that Ron Paul claims that America is a Christian Nation, right? You also know that you just admitted putting your balls in another man’s mouth, right? I don;t have a problem with that, but I am pretty sure Ron Paul does. Just putting it out there.
