My take on the Eben timeline thing:
1.Like some others have been arguing, I took the 2000 year date for Eben travel to mean either that they have been coming here for 2000 years or that they have been voyaging at faster than light speeds for 2000 years.
5.There's a difference between the biological age of a population and the time period in which it develops civilization. I took Anon's comments regarding "10,000 years" to indicate that the Ebens had lived in a civilized state for 10,000 years... not that their species had been around for 10,000 years.

On this reasoning, what age would you assign to our civilization? 2,000 years -- christian culture? 5,000 years -- asian culture? 10,000 years -- whoever built the pyramids?
Numbers are a tricky thing... I find your hypothesese interesting, but I think the numbers will fool us no matter how we juggle them -- it's like having 4 variables and only one equation.

I also liked your comments Hydden, with your story line somewhat following an X-files plot. But I think the way these guys are bickering it is more like a daytime soap opera. Maybe something like, "As the Avery Turns", or "All My Disclosures".

Does anyone else think that this "Anonymous" has bailed?

Thanks for your thumbs up, HAL.
But then again, maybe aliens DO like strawberry ice cream. They are said to be fond of the cows which produce that enzyme...
Digest at your own risk.

Weather he bailed or not, there are aliens. I watched a show last night about an 1897 UFO landing in Texas. Ooof, that was something else!
As far as the group gone to Serpo, i wouldnt doubt it one bit. I dont think we are going to get any pictures- I think that hammer came down on this Anonymous...if you know what i mean.

Ah yes. The Aurora incident.
Did they happen to mention that it was a hoax started by the local town prankster AFTER a group of railwaymen hoaxed (fairly successfully) a cross-country Mysterious Airship? Or did they just stop the story with "Aliens Landed!"?
