Three people, who have the nerve to call themselves "scientists," say when the inevitable alien invasion occurs, we should be prepared to be either slaves or dinner.
According to the International Business Times, these three people actually conducted a study into this, and a journal called Acta Astronautica actually published it.
It contains such gems as:
A core concern is that ETI (extraterrestrial intelligence) will learn of our presence and quickly travel to Earth to eat or enslave us.
A core concern?! Researchers Seth Baum, Jacob Haqq-Misra and Shawn Domagal-Goldman say the aliens will come when they've decided that we are expanding too rapidly and could harm them. And when that happens, they will act just like we do when we find something unusual here on Earth:
Just as we did to those beings, the extraterrestrials might proceed to kill, infect, dissect, conquer, displace or enslave us, stuff us as specimens for their museums or pickle our skulls and use us for medical research.
These geniuses surmise that the aliens would be able to easily conquer us because if they are able to find us before we find them, that would mean they would be far more advanced than we are.
The researchers seem to see no scenario in which an alien invasion does not end in the destruction of mankind. Someone has been watching way too many sci-fi movies.
