Aliens Are Out There, Astronomers Tell Congress

     If there are aliens out there, they likely passed by our planet, considered it an unsavory galactic truck stop, and kept going, continuing on their hunt for enlightened life. Aliens most certainly exist, according to astronomers at SETI in a recent appeal to Congress for more funding to search for extraterrestrial life. The question we should be more concerned about: why don't they want to hang out with us? Are we not evolved enough?

Whether aliens have passed by Earth is still up for debate. What the astronomers are certain of is that there are other "earths" out there that could host intelligent life.

"In the last 50 years, evidence has steadily mounted that the components and conditions we believe necessary for life are common and perhaps ubiquitous in our galaxy," Dan Werthimer, the director of the SETI [search for extraterrestrial intelligence] Research Center at the University of California, Berkeley, told the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology on Wednesday. He put the chances of alien life "close to 100 percent." His written testimony has additional compelling reasons why SETI's research must be funded.

"The possibility that life has arisen elsewhere, and perhaps evolved intelligence, is plausible and warrants scientific inquiry," Werthimer said.

Seth Shostak, a senior astronomer at the SETI Institute, told Congress that the chance of finding extraterrestrial life in the next 20 years is high, but it all depends on the funding. . . .

  1. And the same trite comments keep cropping up ad nauseam.Yes,theSETI people loudly claim,evidence is building up that we re not alone.Exoplanets are everywhere.....The components of life abound....YES and YES, this universe is teeming with life.....So,will deduce the naive layman,we ve been visited,we re being visited and we will be visited!.........Come on,say mainstream scientists...................Don t you know that interstellar distances preclude such visits and,please,don t come up with one of these childish tales about what some wackos call flying saucers!.........You know,will blandly declare bill NYE,lots of people see something.....But there s a quantum leap between describing something you don t know and stating it s a vehicle from outer space!.......Are you qualified to describe what you saw over your rooftop?....will haughtily remark a famous debunker,pontificating about what 2 women described as a 2 mile wide boomerang shaped mysterious craft gliding silently over the PHOENIX area!......And finally you have to endure the WHY DON T THEY LAND IN THE GARDENS OF THE WHITE HOUSE argument generally followed by THE GRINNING ANCHOR making fun of these poor dreamers and their LITTLE GREEN MEN STORY.Whatever in your face well documented compelling case you might mention,they ll give you what for with a pained look .Fancy all these extraterrestrial races crisscrossing the Milky Way and visiting solar systems? How preposterous!...And ,in the meantime,the SETI people continue to pass the hat round to set up more radio telescopes ignoring the host of reasons why this costly enterprise is probably doomed to failure!

  2. I am one of those individuals that knows 100% that aliens are not only 'out there', but right here on this planet, and that they have been for many years. Many years ago I was in the right place at the right time, and that one 'event' happened that removed all doubt whatsoever. It matters not a jot to me that $billions are spent searching for microbes and planets, I have seen what i have seen close up and personal, and that puts me ahead of every scientist and astronomer on the planet. They don't know the truth, as they have no evidence to present. I know the truth as I have seen it with my own eyes.
