I'm originally from Canada, but I've been a U.S. citizen since 1984. You've probably seen this on hundreds of other profiles, but I'm a Star Trek fan(well, I like sci-fi in general). Science fiction is one thing, but I'm looking forward to the day when aliens become proven science fact. I'm a science fiction writer, unpublished as of yet. I'm obsessed with Las Vegas. My favorite things are skiing, reading, redheads, the Nintendo video game series "The Legend of Zelda", temporal physics and stargazing(which goes without saying). See you 'round the Alpha Quadrant!
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Yes, I think that extra-terrestrial life exists. It's hard to think that we see the infinite depths of space, and we are its sole occupant. As Jodie Foster said in "Contact", "that would be a big waste of space". I fear that since the Bible says the structure of humankind was modeled after God Himself, and that someday we might possibly meet aliens that don't look like us, will we feel superior to them? I hope not. I supremely hope we can conquer racism and our post-9/11 paranoia before we make first contact. Sure we should transmit a beacon. If we're listening for alien transmissions, who's to say aliens aren't as well? I do have a suggestion for the SETI@home people. Create a flyer for us to print out, copy and distribute at science fiction conventions so we can spread the word.
