the lie is so big ,its to late to come clean..would take a genius lawyer to get NASA out of the hole they have dug for themselves ..discloser will never come in our life time,would take a world changing event to force discloser so not to damage creditability of world governments.. my guess is, ET doesn't want us to know that they exist,if they did we would be driving warp drive BMW's by now .... snf for op on post ... at least it keeps the debate moving forward

If I were 'in the know' and I wanted to tell the people of the world that there is indeed life on other planets, what would be the best way to accomplish that?
Maybe First I'll give them a generation or two to get used to the very idea. (40's-50's)
I'll publish the most elaborate, far flung ideas and let them get acclimated. (50's-70's)
Then, one by one, discredit the really insane notions, leaving only the reality as 'plausible fantasy.' (80's)
Then, I'll begin the debate about the science and theory of what life would require elsewhere. (90's-10)
Then, I point to a place waay to far away to really be considered threatening. (2011)

So we take them on face value because we want it to be true ?

The signal detected by Ragbir Bhathal did not come from the direction of the Gliese system. Not anywhere near the Gliese system. It came from 47 Tucanae, about half way across the sky from Gliese.
Gliese RA 15 19 26.82 Dec -07 43 20.2
Tucanae RA 00 24 .0567 Dec -72 04 52.6
In December 2008 a sharp laser look alike signal emanating from 47 Tucanae was detected. However, further searches in the same region have failed to detect the signal again.

correct me if i'm wrong but isn't science based off theory,with out visionary out off the box thinking/Hawkins/Einstein/Darwin to name only a few, science would still be in the stoneage,do me a favour and go play with your chemistry set and let the free thinkers think freely

Not to sure , not in the UFO forum that often .
But seeing how this is the breaking news forum I was hoping for some science based on measurable facts with some evidence tossed in for good measure .
However that's not what we have here . We seem to have some French scientists making a claim based on theory and not much else , except for there longing to make this anoucment .
