My question is whether or not my disagreement to the next statement makes sense, and what you philosophers think about my argument.
There is a popular belief that if aliens were to "visit" us, it would be in a destructive and war-like manner. I disagree.
In order for a civilization to evolve and grow to one capable of interstellar travel, it would have to be a culture strong enough and intelligent enough to grow into and support such an advanced race.
- If a civilization had the mindset of destroying something like a planet and every intelligent being on it, its society could not develop into something so great as to travel among the stars.
- On the other hand, war has given our world many technological advancements in the past.
Does this thought process make sense, what are your thoughts concerning my thinking?
