Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
Why I decided to run SETI@home?

I'm interested in well, living things. Mostly Earth bound ones, and I think it would be interesting if we did find life on other worlds. I came across the Mother Earth thread on here, and well, what you say there is wrong. The Earth is our Mother (not in a literal sense, of course, but "she" is). We are all made up of atoms and molecules that come from her, so there! When we die, our molecules are recycled to form other beings, wheather it be animal, plant, fungus, bactria, protozoa or virus. By destorying other living things that are not of our species, we destory what they may become in the future; humans may not coloinise other planets, but one of these could do, and therefore continue evolution that began with a single-celled organism. We have no right to take that future away. If we cannot treat the beings that share the Earth with us with respect, then just how would we react if we did come into contact with life from another world?

My views about the project?

Interesting, exciting, frustrating?
