    If the aliens are able to come to Earth, they must be far more advanced than us. If they are still on their planet, they could be animals or just bacteria.

    as earth as it came to be is about 4 billion years old

    one might reasonably suspect,that 3 or 4 periods of 4 Bn   before .or concurrently with us may have developed

    maybe we are the last of the mohicans

    If Aliens manage to get here, then they are more 'technological advanced' than us. But it would not necessarily mean we are inferior to them. Those aliens could, in theory, small creatures, only 1 meter tall and with only 1/20 the strength of a human being. "Inferior" is just a matter of how you intrepid it, but it would count for technology since 'they' have developed space travel to get here.

    The comic strip "Pogo" said it well, as follows: "They say that there are alien races out there in space that are much more intelligent than we are. On the other hand, maybe WE are the most intelligent race that the Universe has ever produced. Either way, it is a mighty depressing thought."

    Depends on the aliens... My *opinion* is that there is intelligence out beyond Earth;  probably some is far advanced than Man, and probably some has yet to achieve what we have yet.  

    Without any knowledge of any other planets with life though... we simply don't know.

    You haven't said what you mean by "inferior".  I certainly believe that if aliens are social like us, their political order would be more enlightened than capitalism unless they are more closely and instinctively socialised like termites.  They might also have cognitive enhancements or be symbiotic with information technology in a way we aren't yet.

    Why not just different?  

    Why is it a matter of inferior or superior?

    It is very unlikely that two people from different worlds would be at the same level.  One will be hundreds of thousands years older.

      We probably be so behind that we won't be able to comprehend these higher being.
