So i'm not sure how they can know this but I they are smarter than me so I'll just let it slide.
According to a "Global Risks" report by the World Economic Forum, it looks like we're on pace to make contact with aliens within the next decade.
Quote, "Given the pace of space exploration, it is increasingly conceivable that we may discover the existence of alien life . . . in 10 years' time, we may have evidence not only that Earth is not unique, but also that life exists elsewhere in the universe."
And their biggest concern ISN'T a full-scale alien invasion that enslaves the human race but that people will have PANIC ATTACKS and MELTDOWNS if we discover alien life and it makes them question their religious beliefs.
We are all hoping for aliens like ALF and not so much Mars Attacks ones but who knows. Would it make you lose faith if they discoverd aliens on another planet?
