I just have 3 questions.

  1. Why people think that extra-terrestrials beings would kill us ? It's an humain behaviour. Even if they were so much like us, wouldn't they had destroyed their civilization before been able to visit us ? (because of point 2)
  2. Such travel means a knowledge that even our most brilliant scientists and engineers just don't have and can't imagine. Just look at the progress that *we* made on the last two centuries. Now Imagine a civilization that's even only 1000 years older than us. What will be their knowledge about physics and energy ?
  3. Are Scientists so filled with pride about what they are that they can't accept the idea that somebody's more intelligent ?

Yes, I believe we are not the most intelligent and that other civilizations visit us since more time you can think.
True, killing people is a human behaviour.

Maybe EATING other beings is an Alien behaviour?

Brian.

I must admit that I agree with everything he says ...

Hawking: Humans at risk of lethal 'own goal'
