What if Earth was, or managed to contact another civilization?

What would you think?

I'd love it...it would confirm my belief that I'm from another planet. (Oh did I say that out loud?)

To contact another civilization would be an outbreak I guess. It's tough to speculate, because if it did happen many different situations or complications could branch out. It could either mean chaos, depending on what type of race we contact, or it could even mean benefit to humanity you never know. Our horizons will certainly broaden in any case, and there'll be something new to excite and enliven our (bored) human-likes :P. If we can communicate, even the better, maybe we could trade with them or something, maybe they can introduce things to us and vice versa. Maybe....... bla-blah Endless possibilities. And if Earth was another civilization, well we can all be considered aliens in the end.
Everything is strange depending on which perspective you see it from.

Speaking of chaos, could you imagine how the various religions would react to something like that? You would get denial from many of them, and some would deny it even if the new race (aliens?) were to land in their backyard. Some would declare war on them, saying that they were infidels or of the devil or what have you. Still others would think it was Armageddon time and would go hide wherever they think would be safest, such as in old mines, homemade bomb shelters, and whatnot. Some races would disintegrate, plus many people would commit suicide, some would try bombing the "fake" ship, plus millions of freaks would travel to where the ship landed to try to get a piece of it, or to see it, or whatever.

Humans are freaks. Psychologically unbalanced. *sigh* Which is why I am a part of that race, I guess....

While i can't speak for the aliens, I can say that the sharks on both sides are gonna size each other up and proceed with ripping of their own race and the other with fake tech and "real" alien goods. If some of the aliens dont look a thing like us yet still have dollar signs in their eyes, I wouldn't be suprised. Advanced civilazation my left foot!

I would find it exciting.

However, I would be concerned about disease and intentions. In particular, I remember how disease harmed natives when explorers entered the picture. I have heard that diseases would not spread between species. But I wouldn't count on it.


I don't believe that other beings would come here to give us cures for diseases and advanced technology. Chances are they would come, as suggested by others already in the thread, to make money for themselves or their sponsors. Or to collect whatever resources they valued for themselves. It would surprise me if they treated humans with respect unless it was needed to advance their own ends.

I would hope they would pick me to gain super powers and be a warrior for each race. *sigh* Oh well now that the kid is away. I would be excited and would look at all of the people who doubted me and say I am finally going home.

Here's a concern. What if the aliens start a colony here and treat us like dirt. Later, when we get enough tech and number we fight them in a war? Like what happened in those African and Asian countries a while back and the Americas a long time ago. History tells us that those types of conflict often end up being very bloody and brutal.

Then we fight! What else could we do?

I'm talking about after the fighting. Will we as a nation be able to continye to exist? Or will the aliens leave us with our war-torn planet and anarchy across the country and the world?
