According to a renowned scientist, aliens are likely to be just like humans, therefore governments should be ready for the worst if they come to Earth.
According to Simon Conway Morris, a professor of evolutionary paleobiology at Cambridge University, extraterrestrials may not only look like humans but also possess traits like aggressiveness, avarice, and a propensity to take advantage of others’ resources.
Gallup argued his position in “Extraterrestrial Intelligence: A Cognitive Evolutionary Perspective,” an open-access article that was published in the Journal of Astrobiology this month.
Gallup asserted that other species that conceal their true selves as humans are “dangerous” and “aggressive.”
“If sentient life exists elsewhere, it may consider humans to be very hazardous. Perhaps this is the reason why there isn’t concrete proof of alien intelligence, the scientist speculated in his article, according to the Daily Mail.
They don’t want to be found, he said, and we pose too huge a risk.
Gallup attributes the current state of the globe on humans and modern civilization, which has a track record of genocidal acts and devastation. Aliens are probably highly advanced and have already detected us, he added in his speculation.
Though sentient life was kept off Earth by “growing pollution, habitat damage, ongoing wars, pillage, murder, destruction, and the urge for conquest.”
Perhaps Stephen Hawkings Is Correct About Said BeingsGallup’s portrayal might not be entirely wrong. The concept of intelligent life was backed by the late astrophysicist Stephen Hawking.
According to NBC News, Dawkins added, “The concept that we are alone in the cosmos sounds to me extremely absurd and arrogant.”
Dawkins claims that the possibility of humans being the only form of evolved life is extremely implausible given the number of planets and stars known to exist.
has even issued a warning against invasions by drawing a comparison between them and Christopher Columbus’ disastrous first expedition to the Americas.
Additional Life Forms in the UniverseAccording to astronomers from the University of British Columbia, the Milky Way galaxy alone contains up to six billion planets similar to Earth.
4.933 exoplanets—planets outside our solar system—have been identified in 3,704 systems, according to NASA. The majority of these exoplanets are gaseous, like Jupiter or Neptune, rather than terrestrial, according to NASA’s online database.
The history of biology on Earth makes it clear that intelligent, technologically advanced life is the exception rather than the rule, according to Gallup, regarding intelligent life discovered elsewhere.
Despite the fact that there are billions of different types of life, Gallup noted that the only instance of intelligent life that is capable of complicated tool-making and has the mental capacity to experience self-consciousness.
Because of this, the possibility of discovering technologically advanced sentient life elsewhere is extremely distant.
