|Paradox Predicts End of Civilization
Upon reviewing the article again they meant that our terrible end will be aliens will destroy us if we don't find them first. Then according to the paradox they may mean we will destroy them instead, in a whoever find who first will destroy the other one.
An unlikely scenario at best. When reading these articles it makes me wonder, will that happen before or after humans evolve in the future? According to Darwin, we may be evolved to something better by the time the aliens get here, then maybe we will have the tools to defend ourselves from extraterrestrial attack.
