  3. They'll consider thinking twice before messing with us again (this is the neutral answer)

  4. They don't have fear. If we squash them like bugs, they don't feel anything before dying

    Let's say they exist. Greys, reptilians, all that. Can humans inflict fear in them? This fear doesn't come through pain though, and there's no torture involved. It comes from our REPUTATION of being excellent survivors and having the brainpower to think up and create all the tools needed to counter everything they can throw at us. Abductions are no longer a thing.

    Also let's pretend the government switches side and stands with the people. Will aliens begin to FEAR us to the point where they pee themselves by just the sight of a human being?

    Depends if they can feel fear, also depends on the race of aliens. If anything I feel it will be our behaviour as we as a race are always finding new ways to kill each other and don’t always get along.

    Fear is a state induced by perceived danger or threat that occurs in certain types of organisms, which causes a change in metabolic and organ functions and ultimately a change in behaviour, such as fleeing, hiding or freezing from perceived traumatic events. If these creatures are 'manufactured' then they will not be afraid. But if they are biological then they should exhibit fear as a natural reaction for self preservation. They should fear us as we are most probably the most erratic psychologically traumatic creatures they are ever going to encounter. Fear us they must lest they die on the tips of their own spears.

    If they were able to feel emotions and have feelings, they would most definitely be able to fear us... even if we were thousands (or more) years behind them in advanced technology and weaponry, we don't know what their behavior could be like, their mindset, if their emotions work on a different scale than ours... we could be way more intense with our emotions and how we act on them. I believe if they were a race that were truly benevolent, we would terrify them with how we act towards our own kind. Humankind is notorious for warfare.

    Well...

    I still want to have Alien barbecue.

    Don't know if that means they should fear me or not.

    Alien, it isn't just for breakfast anymore.

    Yes they fear us. Not because of what we are, but what we can become.
    They like Elon Musk's car though.

    An emotional response which is not correct at all in my opinion...

    Many humans have been conditioned for warfare, not all humans, not humankind, I sigh every time someone lumps humanity all together into a bad apple like that...

    Haha. I think it is a crash test dummy... but... this will always be a mystery until someone uncovers his face in a few hundred years.

    I didn't really mean it as in, every country, every human, all are notorious for war, but moreso if we were being studied or watched by another civilization or beings, they would see how many of our own we have killed in just the Holocaust alone, with no good reasoning except for one man's belief that others chose to follow.

    I'm not saying we're the only one who fights among ourselves either, as we aren't aware (if) extraterrestrials are out there, that they could have also had wars that weren't interplanetary.
