Recently a hot topic:

Statement on Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence/Active SETI

Sending Messages to ET: Just say no, for now.

And then before the Project Admins made a statement, right here in this Science forum a few posts beneath yours here:

Kicking a dead horse... again (active SETI)

Which was a continuation of This has probably been asked a thousand times...


So yes, we've seen it! ;-P And my answer is not yet. Let's advance some more first and keep listening.

Messages like this make one wonder whether the person that started the topic even reads the list of threads before posting.

Our collective consciousness is instictively starting to think about survival, we know the earth and our sun won't last forever. Intelligence (IQ) and emotions (EQ) are two different factors we have to hold in account. The EQ part is what's giving us away and it ain't that good at times.
