Seti Confirms Alien Signal.


what the hell?



Oh blah blah blah, it'll probably turn out to be swamp gas or something.


Who gives a fuck?


Yeah, I thought I had a GI infection, but it was just a bad case of swamp gas.


..US government is jamming the signal? Strange.


Hmm, smells like bullshit to me.

I don't know how they'd be able to jam observation from different observatories over periods of time.

I think it would be great if it was confirmed, as that would force humanity to consider it's place in the universe.


Let's see:
- "Unnamed sources" are mentioned.
- The "Disclosure Project" is about a Big Government Conspiracy to cover up all UFO and ET knowledge...
- From the website: "Dr. Greer relates his own personal experiences with Extraterrestrial peoples and the unfolding of cosmic awareness since his childhood. From his sighting of a UFO at an early age, to his amazing near-death experience at age 17, to his unraveling of the secret cabal running the illegal transnational energy and UFO – related projects..."

Yup, that's one giant, steaming pile of cow droppings alright.


If you watch the Disclosure Project video, you will find the whole thing more credible than you think. Supposedly, he has over 400 ex-military men and women who've been involved with or seen ET info.

Man, it'd be awesome to see some aliens flying around and shit.


Yeah, until they start probing your ass or shooting you with some green shit.


Or destroying everything with laser beams and Tom Cruise saves the day.


Yeah, supposedly. That's nice. SETI is not a military project; never was. It's now entirely (or largely) privately funded.

You know what would be better than 400 ex-military persons? ONE scientist actually involved in the project that could show data and have it backed up by some peers. SETI is a international undertaking, utilising observatories and radiotelescopes from all over the planet; I doubt that all the other countries involved would agree to the US-imposed gag order. Or maybe it's the US agreeing to a foreign gag order on releasing the info?

Extraordinary claims should be backed up with extraordinary evidence. Here, we've got the claims but the only backup is "unnamed sources," "supposedlies" and talk of conspiracies and cabals.

Really? You do get that a civilization with that much advance over us could do as it pleased with us.

Hopefully, an advanced civilization is also a civil and peaceful one; but think about how much fun it was for the Aztecs, Incas, the Sioux and Cherokees, etc. when they met a more advanced civilization...

Becoming a distant second on the food chain might not bet that cool after all.


I didn't read the whole article, but I call B.S. anyway. I've been running SETI's screen saver for years now and I'm in its e-mail list. I haven't gotten anything about this. Even its main page, http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ , doesn't mention anything.


No need to get your shorts in a panic. Didn't anyone see "Mars Attacks"? All we need to do is blast some yodelling music and BAM.........Martian heads will explode! Who the hell need Tom Cruise?


Maybe I could start a casino in my house then. If life hands you a lemon...



Fuck that, did you see Independence Day?? They fucking blew through us in that movie. Only time I felt safe during that movie is Vivica A. Fox's Stripper scene...Good times. Pray that Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, and Randy Quid can save us.


Yes, but maybe they spend all their time in the gym, and they're on an interstellar mission to help everyone get "swole".




Civil, peaceful, and compatible. The movie/book 'Sphere' comes to mind; be as psychologically pliant as they want, if they inhale H2O, CO2, and N2 and exhale cyanide gas or emit large doses of radiation, they're still not welcome.


If you think about how big the universe is, it is arrogant to say that we are the only living creatures.
However ther is no proof that they ever came here do i'll believe it when i see it. And who's to say that an advanced creature would be friendly or even want anything to do with us? They might just see us as we see ants.


It's new-age bullshit. There is an ad on the page for the coming world war via Nostradamus's writings. Fucking puke.
