• Of course! Why not?

    In most movies, aliens tried to take over earth, right? But it mustn't be that way! Watched MIB? Transformers? E.T.? They are all aliens with good personals. Communicating the aliens might be the next step of success for us all humans and learn how to save earth from pollution, extinction and stuff. So aliens? YES YES YES YES YES YES YES

  • Yes we should

    Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes

  • Think of the possibilities

    Let's just pretend that we just found out that aliens do in fact exist. I think there could be a lot of benefits of doing so. Obviously they wouldn't be able to speak any language on Earth, but if somehow we could learn each others language over several years, we could exchange information that could revolutionize all of science. I highly doubt a species of aliens with the ability to communicate with us would likely be hostile towards us for no reason. But, to think of the information that could be exchanged... It could be endless.

  • First prove existence, but yes

    If they exist, it would be better to be in contact with them. I however believe we should devote more resources to attempting to first prove they exist rather than contact something that we don't know anything about. In the end however, yes, we should attempt to contact them for the greater good of we the people.

  • Ye we nedde ALLEENs

    O yes we should talk to thos aliens. They might be friendly. There is a very low chance, but I need some friends. If you couldn't tell, I very much need some of those, and you are NOT taking away my chance of making friends. I want to die also. And if those aliens are hostile, then I want them to cum to erth, and kill me. Please contact le aliens, so I can DIE!

  • Yes, they might be nice.

    Although sometimes in the movies there are alien invasions and stuff that should not happen on real Earth, we can still try. Other life forms may be nice to us, but they might not. That doesn't mean that we can't risk our chance of making new friends from other planets, or noticing enemies that we can raid there supplies from.

  • Uh.....No just dont

    Do NOT contact aliens.
    You see all these movies and stuff with aliens destroying us like were some simple-minded ants. If we contact aliens and suppose they are nice. The first thing we want to ask them is scientific questions.Stuff like what type of scientific outbreaks have you made so far and other stuff like that. But even though im not risking it.

  • They may not be smart

    Ok aliens may not be as smart they may be biologically able to travel space but they might just have an animal killing instinct and they probably wont understand us and they might kill us just no not smart we should wait till we have the tech to go to them so maybe they wont be as advanced as us but don't let them destroy our planet

  • Aliens maybe are hostile

    Unfortunately, scientists aren't so sure that an actual intelligent alien would be nice or helpful. In a recent interview with El País, famed physicist Stephen Hawking posited that an alien visitation would put Earthlings in the same position as Native Americans when Columbus landed on their shores. So i think aliens may be hostile

  • No. It's better to be safe than sorry because once the genie is out of the bottle there is no putting it back in

    First lets start off with the assertion that aliens art going to pop into existence as fully cognitive beings we can communicate with. They will need to gradually build up to that level. (evolution).
    Now evolution has a few central properties that need to be filled in order to create more complex life forms. 1 the ability to reproduce. 2 the ability for those offspring to reproduce. Meaning the older generation must be able to die off to create room for the next generation, A planet can only sustain so much. 3 competition between life forms. There has to be a need for more adapted life for it to gain complexity. The reason I say all this is because those three traits easily go down the route of a dominator and a competitor. Yes society can change that drive but we have no way of knowing if it has changed them. We still act in this way.
    Life here dost exactly have the best track record of being very nice to foreign life forms even in social animals. It's not worth the risk of letting another life form that could be thousands of years more advanced knowing where we are or that we even exist. Once they know where we are they are not going to forget.

  • This is a dumb idea!

    We all know that we are a curious species and like to discover or invent new things. But contacting the aliens is maybe a dumb idea. I don't think the aliens know where we live. But contacting the aliens might make aliens worried and kill us all. I would not want bother the alien if I have a ability to do so.

  • Communication and trust issues

    How on Earth (or the other planet) do you think that the Aliens will think we are good-intentioned? We ourselves have books and movies all about bad aliens which show our high doubt, so why are we expecting aliens to believe us as good people? I think that by contacting them problems are created, as the aliens may not trust us and who knows what's next? What if they choose to destroy us to prevent us from attacking them first? Even humans lie all the time, so how do u suppose theres gonna be trust

It doesn't matter. If aliens are close enough to be contacted then they'll pick up our radio waves.
