Any individual, public or private research institution, or governmental agency that believes it has detected a signal from or other evidence of extraterrestrial intelligence (the discoverer) should seek to verify that the most plausible explanation for the evidence is the existence of extraterrestrial intelligence rather than some other natural phenomenon or anthropogenic phenomenon before making any public announcement. If the evidence cannot be confirmed as indicating the existence of extraterrestrial intelligence, the discoverer may disseminate the information as appropriate to the discovery of any unknown phenomenon.


Just wondering do we have the detail/overall definition on natural phenomenon or anthropogenic phenomenon + indicating the existence of extraterrestrial intelligence?

The answer of one of the author of that publication said he doesn't understand the controversy about his publication.

« Nous sommes tous d'accord qu'il faut d'autres observations par d'autres personnes pour valider l'hypothèse. Mais pour que cela se fasse, il faut d'abord que nous publiions un article avec les données ! La seule façon de justifier des travaux subséquents, c'est qu'il y ait un article publié. C'est comme ça que la science fonctionne. » Ermanno Borra in a national newspaper.

He said that he had to publish his work with his data if he wants other scientists to validate his observation. That's how science works according to him.[/url]
