SETI was his baby, precisley, where has SETI got us? Your telling me for all their efforts they can't locate one of the millions of space ships that are buzzing around our planet daily? I did state I'm not here to convince the skeptics, so this thread is on the premise that aliens are here.
I understand the premise but millions? What about The SETI League being a public organisation? It hasn't found any evidence either. I haven't heard a single recording of a UFO I don't believe? Are there some? Honest question, not being incredulous.
Sagan was a proponent of the search for extraterrestrial life. He urged the scientific community to listen with radio telescopes for signals from potential intelligent extraterrestrial life-forms. Sagan was so persuasive that by 1982 he was able to get a petition advocating SETI published in the journal Science and signed by 70 scientists including seven Nobel Prize winners.Source
The only thng I can think of is that he was delibrately encouraging a search using radio telescopes because he knew aliens don't communicate in such a way that can be detected this way?
I guess it would make sense albeit be a massive waste of the funds and time of people.
