I belive that when coming to the neverending discussion wether ufo's and extraterestrial exist, and the search for them, there is only one BIG
problem. The problem is not if they actually exist, nor if they know where we are. The problem is that man for some stupid reason belive we are so
damn uniqe. We belive that if there is ET's they will contact us. We belive that they will plan flyovers. We belive that if they communicate they
will use radio wich we can pick up with our current technology. And that is the belivers, most people actually belive we are so uniqe that there cant
be anything intelligent but us in the galaxy.
Even if u put pessimistic numbers into drakes equation it dont only prove that we are not alone, but that there probably are many civilisations
immensly more advanced than us. Why would an such advanced civilisation have any reason coming to earth? I would guess it would be to observe, to get
a glimpse of their long lost history. But I do not think they will try to get contact. They wont land at the white house and say "here is our
technology". They might abduct people to study, they might pick up signals from our radios/tvs etc. But if they are inteligent enough to get here,
they are inteligent enough to understand that mixing with an civilisation under evolution might be catastrophic. I do belive that they might have
interacted with us earlier, pyramids etc. But that part of mans history is lost now.
They dont share their technology, not because they dont want to, but
because they dont see the reason to do so. We belive we are advanced because we have HD tv. HD tv is probably a long lost chapter in their history
books, something that happened hundreds of millenias ago. They dont care dragging us into their huge cross galaxy comunity because we dont have
anything to offer. We are primitive.
And for the sceptics saying: "They wouldnt travel for x decades just to fly by." Here is ur answer; tracing back to the problem that we belive we
are uniqe. By saying decades we asume that they are traveling near speed of light. Because it is impossible to travel faster. We discovred that years
ago. 10000 years after uppgrading from living in caves, and therfore that is a fact.
Because we are so smart.
And why no radio signals at SETI? What makes us assume that they are using radio? Because we use radio, and we look at ourselves as advanced. Hence,
they use radio.
Problem = we are so smart that we dont see that we're not so smart.
That should be enough of my oppinions to start a good discussion.
