Dan Lewis August 11, 2017 01:25 PM I haven't yet read the article, but I'm pretty sure we'll use quantum entanglement and find that extra-terrestrials have been attempting to talk with us for some time. Ted99uk August 11, 2017 02:14 PM A very big thank you to David Szondy for the Aliens treatise. What an amazing piece of work. Ted Scott. UK. Bob Flint August 11, 2017 02:21 PM If & or when there is contact it won't likely be in our lifetimes...with the distances involved.However some believe it has already occurred and we are the result of the contact...

Neil Farbstein August 11, 2017 02:42 PM The Physicist Stephen Hawking, in an interview with the Sunday Times, said that if the human race is anything to go by, it would be better to remain silent."We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn't want to meet," says Hawking. "I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonize whatever planets they can reach." ljaques August 11, 2017 03:39 PM There are no aliens. Just ask that famous ET-denier, Carl Sagan. Actually, though, our brothers from space have been watching us for many years, especially since we put things into orbit and space. These Type V (Kardashev was way low on his estimates of power) are out there waiting until we mature into a friendly species. I mean, from broadcasting the inanities of I Love Lucy into space, to the World Wars and genocide, to Antifa, Feminazis and the Left burning down Universities, we're not yet mature enough to meet them. Stop trying and let it happen naturally. Once we chill, they'll stop by and allow us to say "Beam me up, Scotty" to them. And off we go! Mohard August 11, 2017 05:09 PM Baffling how blindfolded you are to the obvious possibility and overwhelming evidence that aliens are already here amongst us and have been so for a very long time. Why do you ignore the mass sightings like the "Phoenix lights" or all the military, astronaut and aviation observers who in The Sirius Disclosure project has testified to the most amazing observations- or listen to researchers Linda Moulton Howe, Staton Friedman, George Knabb or Nick Pope ? Jaesun_1 August 11, 2017 06:03 PM A UFO was filmed some time ago entering an underground entrance on Antarctica. I'd look there first. Also check with government officials who have had conversations with Grey aliens who have crashed here.Sending messages into outerspace seems to be a waste of time and resources. Skipjack August 11, 2017 07:08 PM Until we have the technology to fight an interstellar war, it would be quite stupid to make our presence known. We do not know what is out there, but it is quite likely that a species that is advanced enough for interstellar travel, would be competitive in nature. Being competitive, they would most likely see us as rivals and might try to kill us. One rather scary thought, I have had is that someone out there has been systematically silencing all broadcasters and this is why we have not received any messages from space yet. Nik August 11, 2017 07:19 PM Palaeontologists frequently find bones of ancient peoples that are covered with cut marks, these are dismissed as evidence of cannibalism, and dumped into a storage. They could also be attempts of a past culture to communicate down the ages, [with a stretch of the imagination.] Maybe if significantly advanced societies find our crude attempts at communication, they will be dismissed in the same way? An added component to the Drake Equation, should be how long it takes before any intelligent life form develops in the life of a habitable planet, and how long that life will exist for. The estimate for Homo Sapiens may be 500,000 years max, in the life of the planet to date of 4,5 billion, not even equal to a blink of an eye, on that scale. Added to that is the fact that the Earth enters an mass extinction event on a regular 150 million year basis. So, intelligent live may well have developed, but all evidence of that will have been ground to dust, or buried hundreds of meters down. So the chances of an intelligent life form existing simultaneously with another in our galaxy, and also being able to communicate with the other, is probably ZERO! Best option for humanity is to assume we are alone, and make decisions accordingly.
