...to humanity w/o that human first checking with humans thus not being voted in as it were, what would humans throw at him when he first announces himself in the role. Not nukes or other h/w I'm thinking of 'you are not chosen by us' sort of arguments. What would that human use in the way of defence (apart from saying 'I've got lots of tech to protect me.' I have my reasons why Aliens may do it this way but do not want to follow that up just yet. It is more complex than first thought. Thanks.
 
Best to choose someone for whom ridicule is just water off a duck's back

I left out the fact that a large Space is craft orbiting the Earth and some rather advanced method used to declare their presence. So given that the authorities on Earth have sufficient proof of an Arrival, that's the starting point for their deliberations. NOT a contactee! ;)

There are still questions. What are the "advanced methods" to declare their presence, besides being seen in orbit by visual and radar frequencies?
A problem with "contactees" and "abductees" so far has been that they have no other evidence of contact - or alien presence at all, besides their word.

So you see an UFO in orbit, and a man on Earth is saying the UFO landed and he met and communicated with the ufonauts. What other evidence is needed?
First, did the UFO land at all? You may lack evidence for that the UFO landed.
Second, did the claimant contactee actually meet the ufonauts, rather than be somewhere else, distant or nearby?

And once you do establish that yes, you have a real contactee, what can you believe of what the contactee is telling?
Because the contactee may be lying about what the aliens showed and told him. Or the aliens may have been lying to the contactee.
 
Choose somebody that everyone knows is intelligent & wise, but who has only a few months to live (thus ensuring they have nothing to gain personally from being the chosen one)

Which also means that they have little to lose from a prospect of getting caught lying, or deliberately omitting important things.
 
Except for going down in the history books as a complete bar-steward instead of an incredibly wonderful person.
Somebody intelligent and wise would know the right thing to do
 
Would the aliens even prefer a wise person as their representative?
Because a wise person might spot discrepancies in what the aliens are telling him (and what he sees).
 
I think you are going about this wrong. People in this thread do not know your aliens, only you do. Since real aliens are not a thing yet, we have nothing to base our assumptions about them on but our imaginations.

The question is: what kind of aliens will pick a certain person to represent them? Once you know enough about the aliens, the answer will present itself. In my opinion.

The people in the recipient society also don´t know about aliens, except that they are real.
For one thing, they don´t know why aliens picked a certain person, or what the aliens knew about the persons they picked from.
 
Would choosing a top lawyer specialising in contracts give the right impression of what the aliens want?
 
Michael [nicest person in the world] Palin, would be my choice.

The original poster merely specified "choose".
Choice of person to abduct may be just a side effect of choosing time and place to land!
 
Two questions here
what would humans throw at him when he first announces himself in the role.
I suspect that the general response would be that the selected person doesn't represent the complainer's group. That could be a nation, a religion, a race, a social class, etc.

What would that human use in the way of defence
I think the individual's response would be highly dependent upon that person's personality. The person could ignore the complaints, respond arrogantly, respond with self doubt, defend his or her group against the others, or simply say, "I don't know." The response would be more revealing of the person's character than of anything else.

If you have a contactee with what may be genuine information about aliens, one obvious idea for the people who learn about the contactee is to seize the contactee so that the information from the contactee would be available to that group but not to other people.

I'm exploring the legalities another way but good thought. Note once lawyers get their fingers in it will take years before anything happens.

Sure. Part of the character's development I guess. I suppose the 'complainer's group' is in fact humanity.

Or just blow him/her out of the water.
