because the likelihood of an artificial radio signal is plausible even...
-the chances of another species evolving in the same manner as us has the same probability metrics as us finding another species who's evolved to the same point we're at technologically.
ill elaborate slightly...
we presume other races would develop in similar fashion as us, or have senses and numskull like we do, or the way we translate things to understand them is how potential ETs would as well, and thus would build or have technology to read and detect the forces as we do.... no respectable scientist would ever make such claim, if evolution happens randomly and would differ each time.
we're not looking for ETs, were looking for ourselves.
we're 1% different than Chimps, and look at our differences, imagine a species 99% different than us, would we even recognize them ro think theyre alive?
science has failed and sensationalized the extra terrestrial idea for so long. so now, any anomaly is a 'potential' of 'something'... just not saying what it is
i smh every time we try to humanize every modicum of interesting findings not from earth. i.e. the 'dyson sphere', why would we think an advanced race wouldnt secede the need to use ungodly amounts of energy, advanced civilizations would use less energy to do more unlike us...
science is now pandering to the masses and telling them what they want to hear.

I try not to get my hopes up, every time this happens, it turns out to be a microwave in the break room, static from someones washing machine,or a covert sat or something like that. This one looks pretty promising however, and the distance of less than a hundred light years means we could actually communicate with them, although we won't hear from them for almost 200 years if we send a message. We will really have to do the star drive thing if we ever hope to communicate with the cosmos.

We should send a interstellar probe there except for the fact we have none because the world is too busy spending USD1,676B a year blowing ourselves up instead of exploring the greater universe.
