Another Extraterrestrial Blog

I ran across this “Extraterrestrial Blog” on the National Geographic website by Dr. Seth Shostak concerning the topic of extraterrestrial life. Dr. Shostak heads up the SETI institute, a privately funded effort to search for extra terrestrial life via their radio emissions.

The focus of Mr. Shostak’s blog is different than mine, I am specifically interested in extraterrestrial visitors, he dismisses that possibility and is interested in the general existence of extraterrestrial life.

I disagree with Mr. Shostak in a number of fronts, most notably he does not believe it is possible for extraterrestrial visitors to visit our planet because of the enormous distances involved and the speed of light limitation which he believes is absolute. My experience tells me otherwise.

The other issue I have is with the SETI protocol. As designed it pretty much eliminates all legitimate extraterrestrial signals except signals that were specifically beamed towards us intentionally taking into account the relative motions of our two planets around their respective stars.

It is my belief that it is quite possible the WOW signal, might well have been of intelligent extraterrestrial origin, but because of the relative motion of the senders planet and ours, we will never see it again, causing it to fail SETI’s protocol, unless the sender is intentionally beaming specifically at us.

However, as they say reasonable people can disagree reasonably. His blog is a relatively sane discussion of the topic of extraterrestrial life, intelligent or otherwise.

ET Contact?

I ran across this interview with Bob Anthony while actually searching for something totally unrelated in the field of radio. The Interviewer is worse than terrible and Mr. Anthony comes across as anything but spontaneous, both the questions and the responses to them appear to have been prepared in advance and then poorly executed.

Mr. Anthony claims to be in contact with a number of races, but mostly “grays” from Zeta Reticuli. He has a message from them for us that seems very common sense and terrestrial in nature so I am a bit skeptical. His website, Stranded On Earth, has none of this message as far as I can see. It does have some photos of “orbs” which I am of the belief represents nothing more than lens flare, at least it looks exactly like the lens flair I’ve gotten in pictures I’ve taken.

I am convinced that we are being visited by alien beings of a number of different races from different times and places with different agendas. I do not believe the grays are friendly or interested in our well being. That leads me to doubt the legitimacy of this video interview.

Check it out for yourself and make up your own mind. If nothing else there is at least some entertainment value. Bob has a very funny cartoon relating to cattle mutilations on his home page near the bottom that makes a visit to his website worthwhile.
