This has not been falsified. All the supposed superluminal things we've seen pop up recently are only exceeding c in their group velocity. The rate at which information is traveling is still below c.
So. . . .Don't perpetuate falsehoods like that.

Maybe we just witnessed the equivalent of a LHC in another galaxy at full power while a bird like animal drops a croûton into it!
At this very moment a million trillion billion croûtons could be screaming towards Earth at 4x the speed of light. Head for the hills or get your Ranch dressing out. It's your call fellow ATSers. I warned you

any chance at all they are answering our radio signals? or maybe they detected our technological civilization somehow and are saying hi...
I don't know if I'm right but I don't think there's any way we can decipher an ET message if its in an alien language and alien code...
but I hope we can at least ascertain an artificial, intelligent, technological pattern
who knows, maybe they're also tagging earth and saying "we're on our way"

If aliens come here and they look like mutants
i'm pretty sure everyone will get machine guns and we'll happily blast them away
HOWEVER if they are human and from a more advanced time...All is good i suppose
however if they want to breed with us i however WOULD not
They can be 900 years old and look 20...we have no clue what's going on
Is there life in this universe elsewhere..HELL WHY NOT. Why do we think we are alone
We make progress everyday. I however would not get on a space ship with some weird kind of humans and travel the galaxy.
This is like STAR WARS...I really don't want to get in darth vaders way or deal with a jedi force lol

"if u see the tornado not moving in a lateral direction then it is either moving toward you ( hopefully not!) or away from you...so if they see it moving it must be moving in a paralell direction in relation to us. just some thoughts I had in a very interesting subject. "
You got paralell and lateral confused above.
