    • Jul 16 2013: Well, it is well known that intraspecies competition is greater than interspecies competition and that intraspecies competition goes up under resource scarcity. So alien invasion would probably prompt us to turn on each other. Please research zombie media such as the Walking Dead serial or even the original Living Dead movie. It isn't the zombies that are the threat, but rather other human beings.

      The notion that a shared threat would unite humanity seems basically incorrect. Global warming is a significant threat to everyone, but not a lot of uniting to solve the problem is going on.
