Message 1624150 - Posted: 6 Jan 2015, 3:23:48 UTC - in response to Message 1624148.  

At least in my eyes E.T is real and exists. How many people hear at SETI believe. How many people do think E.T has visited us and if they are trying to communicate how do we not know if they are using a different technology all together as to what we are to Communicate with the what would be us the Stars.

I've been watching E.T Conspiracy Videos all night and I'm curious as to how many people will need hard evidence before they believe in E.T.

Most are here to look for signs of ET out in space, as in 'are We alone?' That sort of thing, though I can't speak for everyone.

If ET is already here, then I have been

I'm a big fan of BSG(Battlestar Galactica), both the 1978+1980 seasons(I have both on DVDs) and BSG from 2003, MY PC is named Galactica, the next one Pegasus and the third will be either Mars or Poseidon or Nova(Prometheus is already taken), do I think ET or even other humans are out there? That could be quite true, but We'll never know if We don't look, first from a far cause of humanities limited technological base and then closer when humans are able to.

I personally think NASA and SETI know more than they let on because quite frankly they must IMO. Its questionable how far that knowledge goes and how much they know. At the Minute I'm running 5 x PC 24\6 out a 7 Day week on average with SETI and Rosetta and Folding@Home.

I do have my own beliefs on Life after death which is personally for every human and we could sit hear and argue \ debate that but I personally on the bigger scope of things believe Science is the answer as to the fact that when we die, E.T life, the quest for knowledge, technology and the scope of "Science" is all integrated in to one. I've never done much research on it or spoken to a lot of people about it..

I'm not saying is possible to travel through time, as quite frankly I have no idea. Maybe in 1000 years something might be proven. But I do think the universe we live in, the term Science what covers a lot and all things scientific are incorporated in to one grand Universal Cosmos, being the place we live. Life after death just another part of life IMO.

Travel in space yes, time, I doubt that. Right now My PC is hobbled, since to run at full capability I need a case for a newer and larger motherboard to replace a dying motherboard and that may have to wait for another month, as another card, a 2nd PNY LC GTX580 is in My sights(I have 3 LC cooled video cards now, a 4th 580/570 will be the last, then 2 more GTX590 cards and from there either 4 Asus 980 Poseidon cards or 4 Asus Rog MARS 760 dual gpu cards, yes I have the 3 motherboards to do this), then I can get the case I need(either an Azza GT1 or an Azza 9000B), before buying a new motor for the houses swamp cooler.

Some could ask could this have happened? It's possible, We humans don't know our complete history, so anything is possible, even something like this Here...

This thread will ultimately end up in "Politics".
That's all I will say in this thread, before it is moved from the Café, to Politics.

Well I certainly hope not, it's a discussion, not an argument.

Q: Are we alone?
A: Probably not.

Q: Will we detect Extra Terrestrial life some day?
A: If we survive long enough AND keep looking, we may.

Q: Will we ever meet ET?
A: Whatever or whoever caused this Universe to be configured as it is, definitely didn't want a species with an average <100 years life span to actually meet aliens, who reside thousands, if not billions of light years away. Maybe one of my decendents, a couple hundred generations from now, will. I don't expect to.


Know your place.

We (humans) are not built (and if you believe in a creator, then meant) to travel far in this Universe, considering the scale.

We however still deserve an answer to the question "are we alone?"

And that is what all this is about.

I don't know the answer to that question. "Are we alone?" I would like to know. That is why I contribute to this project.

Absolute undeniable proof would be a craft flying into our atmosphere and landing. With an alien then popping out and saying "Greetings".

Will Seti@Home find the signal of an extraterrestrial intelligence? No idea, but it's like when you misplace your keys, if you don't look you wont find them.

As to the youtube videos/government knowing more/tinfoil hatters delight websites and so on... Waste of time really and more likely to help feed a psychosis. Before you know it you'll be running down a street naked shouting about how the government are after you because you know to much about an alien conspiracy to take over the world.

Not if you have a strong inner strength and shield (and brains) my friend:) I don't think aliens do the conspiracy thing, that's a typical human behaviour.

Inner strength goes out the window when your brain goes off on a tangent.

Nope, inner strength and intelligence are not correlated.

Don't know where you got intelligence from, I'm talking about someone going off the deep end of metal stability and straight into the land of crazyville.

No, they're in big trouble if they don't have a protective shield, not talking about a tin foil hat here but if the 'shield' isn't to be found within the individual, he or she should have someone or something protecting them. Someone who is a bit 'stronger' than them.
