A few weeks ago, world-famous smart man Stephen Hawking made headlines by saying that there's probably alien life in the universe -- but that we'd better hope they don't contact us, because it almost certainly wouldn't be for peaceful purposes. Hawking believes in an Independence Day scenario, where the aliens have depleted their own resources and might come to Earth to take ours. He's not saying it's going to happen, just that it would be the most likely scenario if there is advanced life out there. And when Stephen Hawking says something, you pay attention, because he has that robot voice, and it makes him sound even smarter.

On April 30, wizened news troll Larry King addressed the issue on his CNN program. He spoke with Hawking, along with a physicist, two astronomers, and, of course Dan Aykroyd. The once and future Ghostbuster is becoming well-known for his fervent belief in aliens and UFOs, and he was glad to have a forum in which to promote his views. Who knew Coneheads was not a comedy but a cautionary tale? (Well, anyone who saw it knows it wasn't a comedy, exactly....)

Aykroyd speaks passionately and fervently, resembling one of his fast-talking characters so much that you start to wonder if it's all a joke. But no, he seems to be sincere. He first appears at about 5:45 in the clip we've embedded after the jump, and his major point is that not only are extra-terrestrials among us, they are breaking the law!!
