America loves a winner!



To date, no official word given, at least no consensus, as to whether or not any evidence has been found. A few curiosities, but really, that's about all.

The recent 'mega structure ' around KIC 8462852 turned out to be just a crazy acting star, nothing more.

However, with all the new exoplanets being found, and many of them Earth-like, the likelihood of " life " , even if not intelligent, seems more and more possible.


So, are we 'alone' ? Were there civilizations, more advanced than ours, a long time ago, far, far away ?


I think in the next few decades, we'll likely fine ' something '. Signal wise, I mean. Space is far too vast and open to have a ship or any sort of a relic find its way to Earth.

That's my thinking, at least.

You don't think the Stargates might render the travel issue moot?

Civilizations, more advanced than ours, existed about 14,000 years ago, not very far away at all. The evidence still surrounds us to this day.

I'm not opposed to the whole "Earth Seeding" idea, but I've seen no evidence of "advanced" civilizations... And you'd think with all the mining on this planet that we'd have dug SOMETHING up by now...

Not sure what you mean by " not very far away". Here on earth, I'm fairly certain that there were human civilizations which were quite advanced, but then were lost to history.( no, not Atlantis, but maybe close ) But as for extraterrestrial intelligence? I still think that has yet to be discovered.

Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured... but not everyone must prove they are a citizen
