disclosure be imminent?
Within the United Nations is a governing body that has been
preparing for possible contact with an extra-terrestrial race.
The UN’s Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (COPUOS) was
created in 1959. Their purpose is to facilitate matters of
international concern within outer space, as well as deal with any
legal issues that may arise from space exploration.
Professor John Zarnecki of the Open University and Dr.
Martin Dominik of the University of St. Andrews say that
societal uprisings could be avoided if there is global cooperation
in forming an international political body to oversee the
communications between humans and aliens. They both agree that the
UN’s COPUOS will be that facilitator.
In 2010, the UN’s director for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA),
Mazlan Othman, said that,
life is a possibility.”
Othman referenced that scientists are
finding more and more Earth like planets in “habitable zones” that
most likely facilitate life.
She believes that the world must “come
together to lay out a plan” for dealing with discovery of alien
life. Othman also asserts that the UN should be the sole direct
contact and governing body in charge if and when the aliens arrive
on Earth. As the appointed international body on Earth, the UN would
formulate laws and guidelines on how to expedite peace with the
located a new planet twenty-two light years away,
in the “habitable zone” that could sustain life.
The planet has been named
Gliese 667Cc. It is orbiting a red dwarf
star. Scientists are sure it is made of rock and not typical gas as
would normally by orbiting a red dwarf.
The European Southern Observatory is double checking their data
about Gliese. Scientists from the University of Göttingen and the
University of California surmise that Gliese receives 10% less light
from its star than Earth from our Sun.
Steven Vogt, an astronomer from the University of California, said:
“It's the Holy Grail of exo-planet
research to find a planet orbiting around a star at the right
distance so it's not too close where it would lose all its water
and not too far where it would freeze. It's right there in the
habitable zone - there's no question or discussion about it. It
is not on the edge. It is right in there.”
Because the light emitted from the
dwarf is infrared, Gliese would be as energized as Earth and the
possibility of water on the planet is great. The researchers also
suppose that surface temperatures could be comparable to Earth’s.
Astronomers are quite excited about Gliese.
Guillem Anglada-Escudé, of University Göttingen, Germany, said:
With the advent of new generation of
instruments, researchers will be able to survey many dwarf stars
for similar planets and eventually look for spectroscopic
signatures of life in one of these worlds.
While UNOOSA denies that Othman is the
official ambassador for Earth in future alien contact, the Royal
Society published papers of a meeting that showed Othman
participating in an expert panel discussion about alien life,
contact, and even possible contamination here on Earth from
Scientists for the Royal Society
published papers referencing all
aspects of alien existence, surmising that this issue must be
addressed as a serious possibility within scientific and
“Will a suitable process based on
expert advice from proper and responsible scientists arise at
all, or will interests of power and opportunism more probably
set the scene?” asked Zarnecki.
In his paper, “The
detection of extra-terrestrial life and the consequences for science
and society”, Zarnecki stresses humanity “needs to be
prepared for the consequences” of alien invasions.
Simon Conway Morris, a professor of evolutionary palaeobiology at
Cambridge University, asserts that aliens would be hostile and
preparations should be focused on this probability.
Morris clarifies that alien life would
“similar biological molecules” to
humans and extra-terrestrials may have our “tendencies toward
violence and exploitation”.
Ted Peters, professor of systematic
theology at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in California
supposes that alien contact would
drastically affect the world’s
religions, possibly creating a collapse of “conventional wisdom”.
Will confirmation of
extra-terrestrial intelligence (ETI) cause terrestrial
religion to collapse?
What is the scope of God’s
What can we expect regarding the
moral character of ETI?
Is one earthly incarnation in
Jesus Christ enough for the entire cosmos, or should we
expect multiple incarnations on multiple planets?
Will contact with more advanced
ETI diminish human dignity?
He goes on say that the Bible supports
aliens as part of God’s creation and,
“will be seen as the gift of a
loving and gracious God”.
Even the US government is preparing for
alien contact... or invasion.
Last Easter Sunday, the Pentagon, headed by Professor Paul
Springer, conducted a beta test alien invasion scenario.
