My Opinion: Let’s Hope that there is No Life in the “Goldilocks Zone”
While many are excited that we may be sharing the universe with life like us, I don’t see how this could be a good thing. Humans from different cultures have enough trouble getting along right here on earth, and I’m guessing that it would be even harder for humans to get along with beings from other planets. I’m thinking that any meeting between humans and intelligent alien life is going to end up as badly as when Cortez meet the Aztecs. It’s likely to be a dangerous and violent clash that we can’t prepare for since we have no idea what to expect.
Don’t get my wrong, I’ve got nothing against life on another planets, assuming it’s actually there. I just don’t want life on earth to come out the loser if we ever make contact.
