"Reading comprehension is not your thing is it BA? I said that the combination of being more scientifically advanced AND, I repeat, AND benevolent seems unlikely. The combination of the two. Get it now?"

Hey Blue, I believe that is called checkmate!

I think so. God, how I hate when people mis-read or misinterpret my posts. Though I do occasionally do the former. Damn dyslexia lol.

Obviously not, since you completely misunderstood my argument above, but I sometimes do the same if I read to fast as well. I just dont do it so often.

My point was very simple. When cultures collide, the one that has the technological edge will nearly always exploit the situation. So, if aliens were able to travel between stars to get here, obviously they would have this edge. So, I find any "We come in peace" first contact scenario highly unlikely.

Funny, everyone else seemed to understand it. What part is confusing you and I will try to make it clearer for you?

Oh, please.

Who gives a hoot about superted or the fact that no one else questioned you.

I did.

That's all that matters.

You are delusional.

So, sorry.
Well, I will ask you again, what part didnt you understand? Are you so stupid or delusional that you cant even say what you didnt understand? Its simple schoolyard rules:the big kid will always beat up the little kids. The same rule applies to societies. What is so @*%^ing hard to understand about that?

I thought this post was regarding The existence of aliens and Stephen Hawkings view that they would harm us. But instead it seems to have morphed into Clash of the Egos. I have to say that many topics on this site turn into petty and pointless arguments that seem to have no relation to topic being Discussed. I still think Stephen Hawking is wrong and that we're the bigger threat to other intelligent life in the universe. The other thing that really annoys me is why do Space ships not have Anti Kinetic Shielding systems in place. I think that should have been incorporated into the Apollo 11 Mission to the moon before the space craft was even allowed to take off. It may have taken another 40 years longer to develop the technology required but safe space travel would be much better. No more worries about micrometeorites and space debris hitting space craft or the space station either. Also if anyone is to say that inventing Anti Kinetic Shielding is not possible, then look at the Atom Bomb.

Such a hideous and horrific weapon probably considered impossible or purely science fiction by many scientists at the turn of the 20th Century. It just goes to prove that humanity can create and overcome any obstacle if they are determined enough and/or are faced with adversity.

Ok, you piqued my curiosity with the kinetic shielding. I assume you mean like the Inertial Dampeners on Star Trek? Since mass, and therefore inertia, are essential properties of matter, I dont really see how you could change that. Plus, I dont see what the atom bomb has to do with it, but Im not exactly Oppenheimer. Could you please explain how such a system would work?
