How Earth Would Cope With An Actual Alien Invasion

When flying saucers visit Earth they are immediately blasted out of the sky by all the military resources we can throw at it – Well, that’s the Hollywood way of dealing with things.

In reality, how would we deal with the prospect of alien visitations? It’s a question that has taunted us for decades, and a range of scenarios run from the plausible to the outright incredible.

On the possibility of direct attack, Professor Stephen Hawking claims ET contact is dangerous, because they ‘may not see us as any more valuable than we see bacteria’.

The Debate

Theoretical physicist, Michio Kaku warns:

If they are hostile, it would be like Bambi meeting Godzilla if we ever had to fight them…we would present no military challenge to such an advanced civilisation…We would be a pushover for them. Forget all the Hollywood movies.

Ryan Sprague, the author of Somewhere in the Skies notes that so far UFOs don’t seem to represent an alien threat to humanity:

It would appear that we’ve been so aggressively conditioned to believe an invasion would be catastrophic and malevolent beyond comprehension, that any advanced civilisation would come to our planet with an agenda of taking over and using our resources to it’s advantage.

While I can understand this pessimistic view, the decades and decades of possible alien visitation here on the planet already, and the countless UFO sightings throughout the world, would indicate that if they were to do such a thing, they would have done it already.

Could Aliens Even Reach Earth?

UFO sceptic Robert Sheaffer isn’t too concerned about the threat of an alien invasion either, he says:

Well, I would worry about an alien invasion about as much as I would worry about a Zombie Apocalypse. Both are equally implausible.

First, any supposed alien invaders would have to find us. Given that they would be at least several light years away in some other solar system, and probably much farther than that, finding us and learning what earth is like is not so easy.

Second, they need to somehow get here, which is very difficult, even if we assume they have advanced technology, because fundamental physics tells us that they would need insanely large amounts of energy to accelerate space ships to relativistic speeds – and then to decelerate them when they arrive.

Even nuclear fusion power is woefully inefficient compared to what would be needed. If they are bringing along scary armaments and supplies, that’s just more mass to add to their armada.

Protection And The Lack Thereof

Whatever the facts of UFOs as alien invaders, what should we do to protect ourselves other than to have a tin foil hat at the ready?

The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) and their Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (CUPUOS) is not geared for such possibilities.

UNOOSA director Simonetta Di Pippo tells us:

UNOOSA and COPUOS Member States consider a range of space science and space exploration topics, fields in which the topic of astrobiology sits. However, the Office for Outer Space Affairs has been given no mandate by Member States to consider the question of potential advanced or intelligent extraterrestrial life.

For this reason there is no protocol or process for any contact by extraterrestrial life.

The Threat Of Artificial Intelligence

Michael Michaud author of ‘Contact with Alien Civilizations: Our Hopes and Fears about Encountering Extraterrestrials’ (2007) says we shouldn’t be concerned because as he observes in his book, ‘UFO advocates have not yet proven their thesis that some UFOs are visitors from other worlds. I also said that aliens stepping out of a spacecraft on the Earth may be the least likely form of contact.’

He goes on to wonder, ‘Why would extraterrestrials make such a long journey? If they are capable of interstellar flight, they won’t need the Earth’s territory or resources.’

Michael thinks, ‘A more likely scenario is a visit by an unmanned interstellar probe equipped with artificial intelligence. Intelligent machines don’t need the massive spacecraft required to transport biological beings over vast distances, and they are patient.’

Invisible Defence In The War Of The Worlds

‘Assuming they do somehow get here,’ says Robert Sheaffer ‘presumably it is because they believe that they can live on our Earth, if they can only get rid of us. H.G. Wells was onto something when he had his fictional Martian invaders killed off by earthly microbes. Our bodies consist of not just ‘us,’ but an entire biome of separate organisms: the bacteria in our gut, microbes and mites living on our skin, etc.

Sheaffer adds:

It is doubtful that our bodies could survive in an entirely alien biosphere with different parasites, different foods, etc. The same problem would apply to any alien beings who might come here.

Sprague agrees that, ‘we simply can’t even begin to comprehend their genetic make-up, whether or not they possess any type of progressive knowledge, or even if they harbour emotions, empathy, ethics, or morals.’

A Technological Gamble

How Earth Would Cope With An Actual Alien Invasion communication

Malcolm Robinson founder of Strange Phenomena Investigations (SPI) observes that situations of contact between human civilisations set a disturbing precedent:

We have learned that when any technological superior race gets involved with an inferior race the inferior race usually comes off worse (as the history of this planet has shown). We can only hope that when that day comes, when another technological race meets mankind it will not prove to be disastrous and to our disadvantage.

That is a good reason for not trying to send signals out to alien civilisations in our galaxy, but has the horse already bolted as our planet has already beamed radio messages out to celestial targets since 1962?

Michael Michaud says we shouldn’t worry:

The vast majority of those signals are too weak to reach the distance of the nearest star. As Frank Drake has pointed out, we actually are becoming less detectable because of changes in the way we use radio technology. The powerful one-time message he sent from Arecibo in 1974 was aimed at a distant star cluster, not at nearby stars.

A United Front

Philip Mantle, Veteran UFO researcher, author and publisher at FLYING DISK PRESS , doesn’t think UFOs are of extraterrestrial origin, but says if we were invaded we would cope with the situation and ‘Mankind would hope to pull together as one to stand up to any such invasion.’

Sprague, is equally optimistic:

I believe that factions of the world would unite…and others would separate. Science and religion would be shattered overnight, but would continue.

Our hope would be to benefit and expand our own sciences and core beliefs by finding some way to communicate with this advanced civilisation.

What If We Don’t Know We’ve Been Invaded?

Neuro-psychologist, Gabriel G. De la Torre, professor at the University of Cádiz thinks there is a distinct possibility of aliens visiting, but says:

I am not sure we will be fully conscious about it. The main problem in this topic is it has been approached in a very simplistic way.

I don’t think we can be a real problem for Cosmos in any way. It is more probable we may be researched rather than destroyed.

Stealth is a possible approach, however I can not imagine an equal to equal agreement with people of Earth….I don’t think we could even understand their strategy.

As to whether they might secretly manipulate humanity, Gabriel says:

I think this could actually happen even without humans noticing…

If they conform to another consciousness state of mind they could try to operate in our belief systems and consciousness in a subtle way until a more physical approach is convenient for both sides of the communication process. This could be a gradual process.

Even in the radio message approach, this may happen. I don’t believe they will exchange codes, numbers and pictures in the same way we are trying to do. These messages if they happen anytime will have a deeply rooted message direct to our own consciousness.

Reasons To Be Cheerful

If there is ever any kind of alien contact Malcolm Robinson, hopes it could be positive:

It will be both enlightening and wonderful which may change not just our technology but medicine and the way we look at ourselves in the cosmos. As a researcher into the UFO enigma I look forward with anticipation to that day which I hope will be in my lifetime.

So with bacteria, unity, perhaps a little humility, the prospect of an alien invasion needn’t necessarily strike fear into our hearts. It could be the driving force behind bigger and better things.

Ultimately, we just don’t know.

  1. All the religious people would loose their minds and run around like chickens with their heads cut off, all the atheists, satanists and Wiccan type groups will welcome them with open arms since they are the only ones smart enough to realize we aren’t the only ones in a infinite like universe, and I’d be waving my arms yelling to the aliens “Take me with you!”

  2. i think aliens are hostel an is already using use for there own personal use why start a big war if they can already take what they want with out us knowing if they were to attack we would be nothing but a germ compared to there power an when they are done using are world more than likely we will find out right fast how quick they an destroy us or in slave us . they are watching are ever move its only a matter of time . the government already knows all this . the states have only advanced so fast do to having found some of there technology. sure there probably trading human lives for the technology, who know how many bases aliens already have on earth . the government needs to till us whats really going on so we can at lest have a chance to prepare

    • There isn’t gonna be an alien invasion. This is all a story to keep you mystified……. there actually are NO aliens…. ‘aliens’ is a term made by us. Basically it’s a word to describe something different than us. Where as there ARE other life all over the galaxy, they are EXACTLY the same as we are. Spiritual beings occupying a different body. The physical world has all been engineered by very intellectual beings that know how to rearrange atoms to form physical shapes. Even our bodies have been engineered. Reproductive organs were added later as a convenience. Like any business, gathering constant raw materials is difficult. If they can reproduce themselves it saves time and resources. These companies that have engineered everything here no longer exists. Instead it is all designed to reproduce. Bugs and blossoms were one company that made plants and insects. Hence the need for plants to rely on insects to pollinate. This entire world was created as a prison. For all of us. Even those keeping control are trapped here. We cannot escape. When we die, our spirits are tricked to go into the light where we are given powerful electric shocks that make us forget the life we have just lived and carry on in another new body of a baby. This is how it has been for centuries and will continue to do so for another 5000 years. Governments around the world are controlled by these people. They want order and control kept. Hence the hierarchy system. The same system has been around for centuries also. The same religions and technologies we have today are said to be the exact same as sumarian, mesopotamian and babylonian times. In ancient Egypt, the rich pharaohs kept the pretense up by using images of fictional gods and created the whole mummification thing to keep people believing that pharaohs and gods were all real. Today, we have governments distracting the public so much with religions, classes of people, money, division and fear. The same way they have been doing it since this world began. This planet, is actually UNSUITABLE for habitation because the molten rock core causes major weather damage and surface restructures. Atlantis, a real very old city is buried deep beneath the sea……. along with a LOT of other previous civilisations.

  3. The planet Earth will not be able to deal with an alien invasion over 60% of the world’s population do not believe that extraterrestrials exist and the 40% that do believe probably aren’t ready for a visit or invasion 10% of the 40 is absolutely ready for visit invasion or apocalypse I’m one of them
    Be ready so you won’t have to get ready

  4. Well ive read about a fake alian invasion hehe.. To unit the planet or some sort. Or just another way to scare the shit out of people, so our Rulers, can take all control and freedom away from us.

  5. If they truly were intelligent beings they’d blow us up to make way for a hyperspace bypass, the plans of which have been on show in the planning office on Alpha Centuri for 50 of our earth years

  6. We are having the Hierarchy which serving as a protective wall between humanity and excessive evil , without this protection humanity would long since have been overwhelmed and destroyed .

  7. Well, if I was an alien, and I wanted these pesky humans out of my way, I would make a virus to mimic Ebola and make it air borne,,, then I’d pop some alien pop corn and watch the show!!! After u are all dead, I would land, build my home on the beach and start selling alien resort vacation homes !!!

  8. Personally I think the invasion has already begun. But Id like to think if the mother ship does come down. We would let all our differences fall away and act like the one race we are.

  9. The Hebrews minted Coins to Athena and to ZEUS. That Golden Calf, its a Bull and THEY control Wall Street, religions the Fake media and the Fake governments.

  10. there will be few types of people. People who worship aliens will say pls take me, people who are scare will scream and run, military, airforce and navy will be defcon 2 then defcon 1, president and those important staffs will go underground to safe level

  11. If one invaded. There will be others to defend. If there is one species that had visited, there are many. I am not concerned. Unless we were instigator. Then we bring it on ourselves.
