Our ridiculous non-resonant radio antennas can hardly receive a broadcast from the other side of the planet...

EDIT: or a microwave moon ping at power levels of >1kW and a +14dB antenna.

Our measurement systems for receiving radio messages are hopeless.

SETI would disagree.

Got any better ideas, then? We do know that the aliens probably aren't stuck with primitive radio.

Even if they aren't any more, they would still have used it for a few decades at the very least (consider how it's been around a century so far for humans with no sign of a complete disappearance).

Interesting theory, my freshman year history teacher talked about it briefly. There's strong evidence in support of it because of things like the Nazca Lines, the Easter Island Heads, etc. At the same time though there is no record at all of aliens ever visiting earth outside of religious texts. I'm not sure; It's certainly possible.

Rather than watch some guy of Greek heritage who's hair looks like he stuck an appendage into a 220 volt light socket sprout some hair brained scheme, we occasionally watch the LIVE FEED from the ISS. Those are REAL Astronauts, not some weird half baked theory pushed by some station looking for "out there" viewers.

You don't need alien engineering to build those, though, just like you don't need alien engineering to build a cathedral.

That'd be ridiculous. Now, move along, there's nothing to see here...

Well said


The nazca lines are interesting, but ultimately no proof of aliens. It's perfectly possible to have planned them out well in advance, and even though they seem to serve no appreciable purpose, why not let them be art for art's sake? Humans have always been obsessed with great achievements - indeed, maybe they realised that one day humans might be able to see them from the air .

So, 100 years since the sinking of the Titanic and finally History showed DOCUMENTARIES during the whole week; though they were about Titanic, at least it was a breath of fresh air among the contaminating reality shows and Ancient Aliens. And to my relief, they didn't speculate about the lights people observed on the horizon thinking that it was a ship going to rescue them, just to be disappointment again, in that sad night. Can't really say if it was in History, but I certainly watched a documentary in which the lights from the Californian were being considered of "extraterrestrial origins"

Hook up your PC to your TV, choose Extend Desktop in Screen Resolution, profit.

Of course there were aliens on Earth about 65 million years ago. Though maybe it was a intelligent species of dinosaurs and thus not really alien as in extraterrestrial. But sadly they wiped themselves out of existence when their thought to be inherently safe Iridium reactors were bombed in a great war. Though we dont know if the material was possibly only used in the casings of these devices or if maybe they blew up because of some other reason like a solar flare. In any case, that catastrophe wiped out most life on earth and for a long time the earth was barren while the Iridium particles rained down to Earth and all remnants of their great civilization were eroded over the course of several millenia. Most present day researchers confuse this with the impacts an asteroid could have, which also contains Iridium and could cause a mass extinction and "nuclear winter", but that is only because they assume there was no intelligent life on Earth 65 million years ago.
