Yeah Druscilla, that was kind of an unwarranted attack for no good reason, especially considering the nature of the article. I forgot to mention this
in the OP, but part of the reason for me posting this was for a light-hearted look/discussion on the topic from everyone, no matter their leanings,
and quite frankly one that this forum needs considering the usual nastiness that goes on back and forth.
Anyway back on topic, I thought the article also pointed out things that both sides hardly mention as to why contact could never happen, because there
are so many variables that would keep two cosmic civilizations from ever meeting. I definitely believe in life outside of our own planet, but whether
they've been here or not I'm on the fence about, although I do believe there is enough evidence to sway me if I were on a jury.
I will admit however, that the probability of us ever meeting any other intelligent civilization is very low considering the vastness of just our own
galaxy, and the variables for that to happen are almost just as high as the variables for life to even exist.
