Any alternative intelligent/wise being would look at us and I will take a guess and say " they are pure potential, isnt that amazing" Now wether we waste that pp its another matter. Also any being who heard mozarts music would have to bow down in admiration.

Hey Drunkenparrot, whilst I'm sure he's a great man and there's no unequivocable proof as to the true nature of UFOs, Dr Tyson strikes me as a bit of an ignoramus when it comes to discussing the UFO subject.
Do you think he's even aware of some of the more compelling and unexplained cases?

That is probably a good thing, as we (the more intelligent) species exploit our closest genetic relative (chimpanzees) in zoos and exploit them in circuses & the like, not to mention the animal testing that occurs on them in the name of science.
