No, I did not take it out of context, or kind of as you put.
He was saying, if an alien civilisation had blundered through the Solar system would they leave clues, the answer would probally be yes.
Maybe if they was using Nuclear technology, perhaps they would leave a Radioactive trace.
He Said they may have fiddled around with the biosphere and created micro organisms, or left a clue as DNA is a great place for storing
lol, He also said we must not be fixated on looking for signs in the sky through the SETI Program, but perhaps they may have left a clue within our
genomes, afterall our DNA has been been here for 3billion years.
Yes he did say the ideas are fanciful and science fiction but we must not be fixed just on looking in one spot.
So he was giving ideas, suggestions,an opinion, he didnt say it as a fact and I never took it out of context.
Now, Ideas is where you start turning Science fiction into Science fact, or at least test those ideas and either disprove or prove the theory, if we
become fixated at a radio signal, And not testing these ideas, How will we ever find out?
It is a fact
, Scientists have a very dark unknown area over the understandings of DNA, They dont know exactly the mechanics of it, they dont
know exatcly how things like Amino acids turn to DNA and replicate itself.
So come on, full context of the discussion please, your just clutching at straws trying to discredit me for some reason.
Quoting myself from previous post
we may have to look at our DNA for signs of other life as the main way for looking for other life is weak, like radio signals.
Yeh, thats really taking it out of context isnt it?
The key word We May
have to look.
