I think this turned out to be like an 11 GHZ satellite interfering.

I'll say this just because something is older than us doesn't mean it's more evolved.

If we look at our own planet and look at the species that exist on our planet for hundreds of millions of years before man, you can see my point. Dinosaurs as an example had hundreds of millions of years of reign and they were still stupid. Man has been here a fraction of their time and look at how far we have come.


There are so many factors that need to align to get to x level of tech. Given social religion and other issues that hold societies back.


This isn't even a through walk though but.

You would need the right conditions the right life form template the right conditions to create all the separate tech to create technologies and they themselves each have many parts . Just look at a desktop pc. And that's simple even each part has sub parts.


So on earth 4.5 billion years how many stupid non sentient life forms exist? 99.9999999999 percent are dumb compared to one Humans..

I think "They" agree with you.

Ever notice how they seem to always run from us if spotted by alot of people?
I guess they believe all the stupid that goes on here is somehow contagious - I'm sure they've observed more than enough of it and are like "And they want to reach out to us with all that going on"?

Screw it man - Punch it! biggrin.gif

I'd also have to think we could be just a cheap laugh for them at times too.
I mean if the above is true you'd have to wonder why they keep coming back for more - Kinda like watching a trainwreck on a planetary scale?

I'd try to avoid entertaining the idea of a race-of or even a single alien existing until you have imperial data to prove that "they" exist, and more data to prove, to yourself, that you witnessed "them" existing.

But if you just want your mind blown, consider the irrelevance of day to day existence for a being that is able to manipulate space and time within a conscious grasp proficiently enough to actually travel, in a biological form, to a distance such as that which inevitably exists between us.

In this case, you're talking about 95 years of travel at the speed of a photon. A straight shot across the galaxy is 100,000 light years. Consider the progress we've made, in only 50,000 years. If the speed of light is a real barrier to velocity, as Einstein says.. we are likely far from being anything other than a waste of their time. The would more likely be interested in interacting in a much more virtual sense.

For this reason, I always tell conspiracy theorists to look for aliens on the internet. It's far more likely than a visit.

Oh yeah, I agree that unless you have concrete proof of such such things it's something that should be viewed as not likely at the least.
Until such positive proof is obtained I am of the thought "They" don't exist.

Even with all the things that's been found over time we cannot explain which would suggest it as being so, to this day no one yet has proven any of it as being of concrete proof with all being speculation or theories of what it could be.
A good theoretical example would be what if one day our civilization does get wiped out and centuries later a desendant of the survivors happens to find a figurine of Ronald McDonald.... And for some reason comes to the conclusion he was a god in the eyes of those living in the time it was made - With human nature being as it is doesn't take alot of imagination from there to run with it and expound the error to the point it begins to be believed as fact.

All I can say to these guys is don't give me speculation or theories, give me actual proof of it.

Uh..it's been expanding at the speed of light since your post. While 100,000 light years seems pretty big, the latest data shows the visible (to us) universe is at least 28 billion light years in diameter. Try to keep up. biggrin.gif

Don't get me started on the implications of the size of the Universe.

I was talking about the size of the Milky Way, which they say is around 100,000.

Oh sorry, missed that little milky galactic spec while i was speed reading at c. You're keeping up better than me. ;-)

While we all need our space, can we please get you started on the size of universe and its shape. The shape part really intrigues me.
