Lately I've been seeing a lot of news stories about us receiving FGRB's, or F(ast) G(amma) R(ay) B(ursts) from different parts of the universe. FGRB's are typically high-energy electromagnetic beams that travel at the speed of light, can last from a split second to several hours, and are believed to be a means of communication from other parts of the universe; we send out the signals ourselves hoping for them to reach another planet that can receive and interpret them. I've also been seeing a lot of stories about how we're finding skeletons and alien looking fossils, both here on Earth as-well as on Mars and the Moon. So, is this all just a hoax? Or is there truth to it?
Well, first, let's look at the definition of the word 'Alien'
Definition of alien
a : belonging or relating to another person, place, or thing : strange
b : relating, belonging, or owing allegiance to another country or government : foreign
c : exotic 1
: differing in nature or character typically to the point of incompatibility
So, an Alien (in this context) is basically any living thing that is foreign to our world. So in other words, some of the weird, alien looking, numerous eyed fish with razor sharp teeth in our seas, that live at incredible depths and pressures could be aliens, we just can't communicate with them. But, take a look at the last word in the last definition, it says typically to the point of incompatibility. Does that necessarily have to be true? Like pretty much every movie depicts - do we have to have a disagreement or war with aliens if they ever come to us, or we find them? Or can we just show them that we are an evolutionary species and we are intelligent (well, some of us haha) and that we are worth letting survive as we will eventually populate the cosmos?
If we ever are publicly visited by Aliens, or we ever do find aliens ourselves, do you think we'll get along? Or do you think one race will try to wipe out the other; and if so, for what reason?
