Re: Aliens May Exist But Contact Would Hurt Humans; Hawkings
Well my point is your misinterpreted what he/she was saying but I'm assuming my following explanation will not be heeded.
"I have no clue why you are of the opinion that the chances of an "alien" society being more advanced than we are is unlikely.
Care to back up your opinion with "scientific" facts?
Didn't think so.
Because, obviously, scientific facts about aliens do not exist and netiher do any "scientific" facts exist regarding whether or not they are more advanced than we are.
Speculation is all that exists regarding ET's.
If, as you believe, an alien society had to grow up in competitive conditions just as we have, what makes you believe they did not prevail in being more advanced than we are?"
Your entire rebuttal to Fallaciesabound what aimed at questioning why he 'knows for fact' that aliens might not be more advanced than us. My point is that he never said such a thing, his "AND" was implying he thought it very unlikely that advanced aliens would also be caring and nice aliens towards us on encounter - much as Dr. Hawking is predicting.
