I think it would last much longer Proves that for 1 there is life beyond ours, and secondly, There are planets beyond ours that are capable of supporting life Then there’s tech other than ours, rockets that are capable of all this It would be a f-ing giant thing


Lilpu55yberekt69

In principle sure. But most people would stop caring quickly.

Corona taught me otherwise . I think people would change there perspective but it won’t change there lifestyle for the better drastically. It’ll be that type of situation where you think about it for a week or two and go back to your normal life in about a week later with no hesitation


Vivid_Speed_653

Corona is much smaller compared to Aliens. Diseases are all around us. And pandemics aren't exactly unheard of either.


HawkeYun

Not if they take over the world or start WW3 lol


No-Counter-7919

True. But I’m just talking about we discover them and they come in peace, not just come and try to destroy us. Should of included that


HandsomeWack

They would provide an amazing amount of technological help which would in return attract alot of media


shitman__

I don't think so, if aliens come it would be very big thing First it proves life exists in other planets Then infos about their body's, civilization,their machines, language,their pasts will be way more exciting and we can combine it to boost our techs,way more possibilities It will change our lives, if they come first thing I am gonna do is study their language, a translator will bring me lots of money and I can work with them and their techs

1 is a disease. The other is **ALIENS** stupid opinion


Ima_Jenn

How did you make aliens bold? Are there other things that can be done to text? I accidentally figured out how to *italicize*


JerCoMambo

Double asterisks ****

“Straw-struck” lol. r/boneappletea


Jackso08

Lol if aliens showed up it'd be news every day for years. No clue what you're talking about with Corona, that was 24/7 news coverage for at least 6 months

I couldn't get past straw-struck...

You may be right-ish. I was in Phoenix AZ during the Phoenix Lights in (98?) This GIANT v shaped craft slowly moved over AZ from the SE flying slowly over home, Sat stationary above Phoenix AZ for an hour and then slowly moved nw. There weren't camera phones everywhere, but some people on the mountains got crazy photos and camcorder footage that the local news played (it was a ginormous craft) Then a bunch of people and news stations filmed in hang there for an hour with these circle lights on a V shape. It even played nationally. At first the airforce wouldn't comment. Then they said it was a formation of jets dropping flares. Then they HAD the jets go out and do it because no one believed them. The flares lasted 15 min? And looked absolutely *nothing* like what hung over the city. Then it just wasn't sited and people stopped talking. I went looking in YouTube for some of the home videos to share with a friend, and there is barely anything there (though I suck at finding things on YouTube). How it didn't become a NFD is beyond me. It's kind of like everyone is glued to.the TV about the packaged building on Florida, but 600,000 + people died (the population size of Portland OR, Memphis or Last Vegas ) and people are like Meh I'm not going to wear a mask. Covid isn't real. Etc. Or The capitol insurrection was just like any other tourist day. People have an AMAZING ability to shut out reality they don't like. Yesterday The military just released a report that said that of the 157 UAP incidents they have investigated they only found an explanation for 1. They went on to day that UAPs we're real as several of them had data capture from multiple sources (eg multiple radar and cameras and such) Then these are not the technology of foreign powers (or some such meaning that it wasn't advanced tech from China or something) and they left it at that. So they very boringly said They are real They sent from foreign governments Where does that leave them to.be from? But OP is right-is


Hermit-mountain--

I mean this basically happened


Thenick0410

*when*


Hermit-mountain--

Government confirmed ufos last summer no one cared. You didn’t even know it happened.


SSexpress

Well UFO doesn’t equal extraterrestrial life.


Hermit-mountain--

No but you would think it would be a point of interest


adultTAW

'Unidentified' does not equal 'identified as aliens'.


shitman__

Ufo means unidentified flying object not aliens, even if I throw a stone at u it is a ufo to u untill u wake up from head injuries and learn the truth


Hermit-mountain--

See what I mean no one cares

mouthpanties

It will be trumps fault


Brjsk

That’s assuming they aren’t hostile, we will have more than two weeks in figuring out their intentions along with just finding a way to accurately communicate, and assuming they’re friendly we would probably shortly after see a boom in new tech that would probably eventually effect everyday life


AussieCollector

I really think the idea of aliens being "hostile" to be quite stupid. Any alien civiliation to even reach another planet supporting life would of surpassed the primal squabbling of "resources" and would purely be looking to further its species and study others. They gain nothing by attacking us. But working with us they gain everything.


adultTAW

Depends on what kind of aliens they were. If they were microscopic organisms that came in on a meteor or something, you're probably right.


throwaway99477372

aliens would literally demolish any sort of wacky old religion. Everyone would be going batshit crazy. honestly the visit of aliens would probably start another middle eastern war lol


AussieCollector

Part of me believes this is why their existance is covered up to this day. All religions would be proven false overnight. Millions if not Billions of people would have their entire lives and world views changed overnight.


StarChild413

> All religions would be proven false overnight. All? What about Scientology? Wicca? Buddhism? Jedi in the places where it's recognized as a religion that you keep hearing about on TIL? All denominations of Judaism that aren't Orthodox (so less likely to take the Torah that literally)? Unitarian Universalism? Whatever the Amish (who might not even hear about it) practice? Or are you one of those atheists who think all religion is just conservative fundamentalist evangelical christianity in a different hat and once it's all gotten rid of we can have a rational logical venerating-science-in-a-way-you'd-get-executed-if-you-called-worship space utopia


DarkAngel900

Expounding on the "conspiracy theories" aspect, how fast do you think any footage of aliens would be claimed to be "made with CGI" or "it's all crisis actors hired by Soros to deceive us!"?


tempski

I'm gonna have to go with "nah" on this one, buddy.


AussieCollector

Honestly i disagree. If aliens were to reveal themselves tomorrow with no way of governments covering it up. It would make international news and stay in the news for a very long time. It would be the greatest discovering of humankind. EVER. It would trump anything else humans had ever accomplished in the entire history of this planet. The mere knowledge of knowing we are not alone would be extremely significant on proportions so massive that it would rock the core of this planet for decades to come hell even centuries. It would change everything as we know it. Life as we know it would never be the same again. So much would change with the news of sentient aliens existing.


Negative_Spectrum

It'd stay much longer because it'll also turn into an endless political debate how it's the second coming of Christ or something against how it's not while these aliens plan to blast the Earth into another dimension or something.


Grizzman56

I don't think it would. It would change everything overnight if we were visited. Now if you said something like, we detected life in another solar system a few hundred light years away, or so, then I think that would still be huge news and change a lot, but maybe in a few years people would care a lot less in general.


StarChild413

Are you saying aliens visiting would be a bad thing because of corona


MilesYoungblood

Highly doubt it


Charming-Resolution7

unless they kill us all in about an hour or two
