    What makes you think they'd be any better?
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    SETI is now privately funded. Congress cut the funding.

    No, they get to stay here, trapped on this planet and in very small pockets of it.

    They will not spread their child like emotionalism to the stars.

    Right because fewer and fewer are using radio, and because it wasn't finding anything.

    Doesnt really change my point. The foundation is based on what scientists believe.

    There have been several earth like planets discovered so far. Since meteors contain massive amounts of water it is a fact that even Jupiter's moon have water, Mars had water and since meteors full the universe water exists everywhere and what little microbes of life live in that water???? It is only a matter of proximity to a star that gives life like Earth a chance elsewhere.

    To think that our planet is the only one that contains life the universe is not only naive but also arrogant.
    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.

    You might be right. And you know what? You will probably never know.
