(ORDO NEWS) — Neil DeGrasse Tyson (born October 5, 1958) is a great American astrophysicist and one of the most influential popularizers of modern science, who at times does not mind speculating about aliens.
Tyson is convinced that aliens do not visit Earth and certainly do not come into contact with humanity, which, according to the scientist, is rather primitive and extremely irrational.
We’ve prepared for you six funny yet thoughtful quotes from Neil DeGrasse Tyson about aliens that will make you smile and think. Note that Tyson said all this just the other day.
Aliens and ancient civilizations
If you cannot understand how ancient civilizations created certain things [for example, the Egyptian pyramids], then this does not mean that aliens helped them.
If I had ever met an alien, I would not have held out my hand to shake him with an extended appendage [hand], since I would not know the details of the anatomy of a space guest , but, for example, the genital organ].
Can mechanical life exist?
I wonder if the aliens, after landing near the motorway, will think that trucks for transporting cars are pregnant life forms?
If we find alien life forms in the subsurface ocean of Jupiter’s icy moon Europa, I wonder if we will have to call them “Europeans”?
How self-centered it is for us to think that aliens who have mastered interstellar travel in the Galaxy will not give a damn about people on Earth.
Aliens, seeing how people destroy each other because of land, politics, religion and resources, will probably ask:
“What the hell is wrong with you ?!”
After that, they will return to their home planet, stating that there is no sign of intelligent life on Earth.
