Dear Seti, i have had ur program buzzing away at home for 2 months or so ive accumulated credits, my question is what are these credits for why do i have them and what can i do with them,
Secondly Seti has been going for a wile now, and in that time there has been thousands of UFO reports why havent you detected any of them, and wouldnt it make sense to try and detect the signals that are closer, based on the fact that we think we are getting visited, i dont no i just think that there are more sightings and ufo reports in our own back yard so why isn't the evidence there?

Dear kabppbzsta.......
Seti credits are simply an accumulative total of what you have contributed to the project. I have been trying to get enough of them to trade in for the mythic 'Seti Toaster', but to no avail.
Seti goes beyond our solar system to places beyond.
If the 'little green men' get close enough to present themselves, other means than Seti shall detect them.

We are going for the big banana. Proof that intelligent life does, or has, existed in other solar systems.

Credits are just for fun. You can compare them to other people or as a "barometer" on how your system is doing and how it should be doing.

I think it's evidence that those sightings aren't real, otherwise we would have caught them somehow. In an age of cellphone cameras and all of our listening devices and whistleblowers such as Ed Snowden, if the claims were true that we are being visited, the evidence would be undeniable.

The credits cost of the toaster increases as a proportion of the highest score, the current multiplier being at least 1.1

thanx to all for the heads up on the credits, i personally think there is millions of years of evidence you just have to filter out the unlikely from the likely, theres so many situations that have no real logical explanation, even the astronoughts have had a thing or two to say about ufo sightings, the White House has even seen some action in 1952 under President Harry Trueman's administration, it was reported that sightings of ufo's around the capital and the White House, Trueman even went on record then the whole project Blue book thing and the CIA, thats when things started going south, when the spooks stepped in, and NASA's agenda the list goes on. The truth is out there but like everything now days its expensive...

If you spot something flying around that has beings
from another planet in it you have just seen an alien space bus. Since
it has now been identified, it is no longer a UFO.

Where are the left behind advanced technology? Where are the left behind markers? Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. All of it seems unlikely to me.

theres so many situations that have no real logical explanation, even the astronoughts have had a thing or two to say about ufo sightings,


Seeing something that doesn't have a current logical explanation doesn't automatically translate into alien UFOs. There are many occurrences in our history where they couldn't explain something which our science can now explain.

the White House has even seen some action in 1952 under President Harry Trueman's administration, it was reported that sightings of ufo's around the capital and the White House, Trueman even went on record then the whole project Blue book thing and the CIA, thats when things started going south, when the spooks stepped in, and NASA's agenda the list goes on.

Yes, Project Blue Book was a real team assembled to research into the UFO phenomenon. However, assembling a team doesn't automatically translate into alien UFOs existing, nor is it an official endorsement of UFO activity.

The only obvious truth out there is that we have not been visited by alien UFOs. Not now nor or ever in our past. Aliens might surely exist, but they most certainly have not come around here.
