Dave here and as the name Seabee says, I was a former Navy Seabee from 1972 to 1976.
Currently I am 55 and disabled and yes I do believe that there is intellegent life out there. It may be further than our thechnology can take us now or in the next 100 years, but none the less, there is life out there and we can and should learn from it.
I am from a small town in upstate New York named Herkimer. I have always held in interest in life beyond our solar system. This goes as far back as my child hood from when I first saw Star Trek TOS in the 60's.
I feel that the whole human race should be more open minded when it comes to the realization of life beyond Earth. To say that we humans are the only beings in this vast array of space is being to narrow minded. I think it is great thatSeti is in the business of proving the fact that thyere is life out there.
Yes, it is like looking for a needle in a hay sack with the hay out there being a billion times bigger than your nornal hay stack.
If you would like to learn more of my insight, please hit me back. I am sure it would be great to learn from each other.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I run seti because of my desire to learn about the possibility of life and how it may effect us in the future
I think the project is great and could be expanded in other areas unless already done so.
I think your terminology should be a be more simplified so that younger PC users that are not so PC savy can better understand how to run the settings when setting up. I have been told this by several younger friends that want to participate but are not sure how to set up.
