A nearby star, Ross 128, about 11 light years away, seems to be putting out some rather remarkable radio waves. Discovered by the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico (the one shown in the move Contact) other observatories like the Allen Telescope Array are set to begin observations in the next couple of days to make sure the signal really is coming from interstellar space and isn't caused by instrument malfunction or radio waves bouncing off satellites.
It could be anything at this point (but very-very unlikely aliens). But the next couple of weeks should be interesting none the less.
Satan works in mysterious ways, he would love for us to believe that there is other intelligent life out there. Then maybe we would question the whole genesis account of creation. I for one am determined not believe any evidence that life may exist on other planets just as I deny all the evidence for evolution right now. JK
JW_Rogue I for one am determined not believe any evidence
Good for you. The best thing you can do with evidence which disagrees with our unprovable beliefs is reject it without a second thought.
Who needs facts anyway? The stupid things just get in the way of religious belief. I tell you, if the Bible said there was no such thing as our sun then I'd believe it.
That crafty satan will do anything to make us question things. Can you imagine, questioning our beliefs. How ridiculous. My father gave me these beliefs so I know they're right. He knew they were right too because a stranger told him so.
Scientists? Just let them wait until Armageddon proves every last word of theirs wrong. We would be so much better off if we could get rid of all the sciences.
Now we need to build a wall around the earth to keep those illegal aliens out. When will it end! Making Earth Great Again!
"It now seems clear that the Arecibo detections were due to transmissions from Earth satellites in geosynchronous orbit. Ross 128 has a declination (which is comparable to latitude) of close to 0 degrees, which places it in the thick of a phalanx of these satellites. It was telemetry from these satellites, and not extraterrestrials, which accounts for the signals. "
Now we need to build a wall around the earth
WaeO: no need for a wall stretching from the four corners of the Earth, once the aliens read wt literature, and realize that Saran is on this planet, for heavens sake, they will give us a wide berth, SETI awake!
