There you have it. None other than the smartest, most learned, most foresighted man on the planet says if aliens visit us, it would be bad.
Which, is … not unsurprising. Would aliens come here just to chill? They’ve got alien couches and alien bars on their planet, I presume. Why would they come to Earth if not to ravage and pillage our land and our people?
Speaking to El Pais, Stephen Hawking likened the situation to when Europeans first came to America. You know, the brutality of Cortes and Pizzaro, only on a intergalatic scale.
‘If aliens visit us, the outcome could be much like when Columbus landed in America, which didn’t turn out well for the Native Americans.’
‘Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonize whatever planets they can reach.’
He said it’s almost certain aliens exist, in his mind. And while they may not be coming for us, if they do, it ain’t gonna be all sunshine and cake pops.
There probably wouldn’t even be any cake pops by the time the aliens were done.
