Ok, heres why this "contact" and others like it (of which there have been many, MANY examples), are of no use to the massive majority of people on
this planet. Those who have pre-existing religious beliefs will have ideological issues with the methodology, and those who trust science to be the
sole tool of mankind in his quest for understanding, cannot examine the so called evidence for themselves, because there is none.
That means that as proof of the existence of off planet species of intelligent beings, this allegation is of no weight what so ever. Only science
reaches beyond enough boundaries of faith and intellect, to prove anything about the universe to the majority of people.
Since the entire idea of proving these things, is to make the human race in general, aware that we are not alone, and perhaps then divert funds to
increasing the speed of our space technology advancement, the only legitimate, and valid proofs and evidences, are going to be ones that have a
physical, scientific basis, not those which rely on totally suspending ones disbelief.
What this so called "contact" asks of people who read of it, is to place FAITH in those who are making the claims. Faith has no part in proving
ANYTHING. One does not use faith to prove a murder, but forensic evidence, like blood drops, gunshot residue, and the like. Given that the question of
wether or not we are alone in the universe is perhaps of even greater importance than the aquisition of justice, to rely on anything OTHER than
physical, scientifically testable evidence is foolhardy, and pointless.
