Remember Simon Conway Morris? He was the guy who warned of the potential threat that extra-terrestrials could pose to our planet. Well apparently he’s been backed up by British astrophysicist Stephen Hawking. The CBC is reporting today that Hawking warns about the dangers of communicating with aliens in an up-coming Discovery Channel documentary. This is essentially the same warning that Morris gave at a conference of the Royal Society in London back in January.
It must be quite an ego boost for Morris – it’s not every day that a legendary genius agrees with your theories.
I, on the other hand, still think that even the arrival of peaceful aliens would be devastating for the human race. We don’t take well to outsiders.
