If aliens are out there, I think we should DEFINITELY get in touch with them. It'd be great to get on their good side so they don't destroy Earth . . . we could team up and destroy Mars together instead . . . then have weird tentacle sex. Win-win.
A surprising new poll just found that the majority of Americans believe there's intelligent life out there . . . but don't want to get in touch with them.
50% of people say they believe there are aliens out there and 31% aren't sure. Only one in five people don't believe intelligent life is out there.
But . . . only 37% of people think it'd be a good idea to get in touch with aliens.
Of the people who believe aliens are out there but think it's a bad idea to contact them, the number one reason is that it'd be DANGEROUS to let them know we exist.
The number two reason is that it'd be a waste of money. (Huffington Post / YouGov)
