Oh heck, I might as well toss in my 2 cents worth.

Lets say irrefutable evidence or proof comes in that we have
been visited by alien craft etc.

I agree it would be a three day wonder, maybe 2 weeks of
madness. After that, I see things a little differently than some

Sure, governments and their militaries, would go into a frenzy.
Scientists would have field day once the inevitable bashing
stopped, and these effects, though long lived, would start to
trail off.

Without proof, I would bet a dollar or two that the great
unwashed would be back to their sports and celebrity magazines
before very long.

Clergymen would work these discoveries into their sermons, only
to see the same faithful they always had, still nodding their
heads in semi-slumber.

Capitalists would capitalize on the news, only to learn that
fads die a terrible death.

Ufologists will crow "we told you so" only to hear "so did we"
from their antagonists.

Several new brands of breakfast cereal will appear, only to
vanish again, but more quietly.

The Middle East will remain an intractable mess.

A few contactees will disappear for 2 weeks, and reappear having
reinvented themselves as 'spiritual guides'.

Fuel prices will continue their rise, occasionally dipping, only
to find new peaks.

People you remember as being young, will appear older. Familiar
old names will sadly appear in the obituaries.

I will discover that most of the listings in my database were

Messages to the 'space aliens' will remain unanswered.

Chocolate bars will shrink in size, increase in price, or more
likely both.

Enrollment in science courses will increase sharply, maybe the
one real benefit.

In short, another big bump on the road, I'm not minimizing that.

Civilization did not fall apart after the discovery that we
share a common ancestry with the great apes. We survived
uncounted wars, famines, epidemics, even Prohibition, (Lord help

Over half the world believes in life elsewhere. So finally there
is some proof?

Give it 2 months (more like 3 weeks?) The news-racks will be
full of the latest Brittney Spears clone, Brad (whatzisname) and
Jennifer (who-cares) and things are right back on track.

Best wishes
