An Awful Waste of Space

SETI, Astrology and possible alien life on new planets

Just think -- if intelligent life exists on worlds beyond Earth, how many different Astrology systems there would be! 

SETI, which stands for Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, has made a mission of exploring the nature and prevalence of life in the universe since the mid-1980s. It’s best known for its Allen Telescope Array of radio dishes, which Jodie Foster made famous while playing a SETI researcher in the 1997 movie “Contact.”

Foster’s character, a scientist who believes in extra-terrestrial intelligence, was best known for stating if there aren’t other intelligent worlds out there, it would be “an awful waste of space.”

Problem is, they have inadequate government support, according to SETI CEO Tom Pierson.

It's too bad, considering recent news has been filled with reports about new planets and scientists becoming more supportive and open to the likely possibility of alien life. Seriously. This isn’t just the stuff of conspiracy theorists and UFO fanatics anymore.

Last spring NASA astronomers announced they found 1,235 new planets, with somewhere between 5 and 50 of them being in a “habitable zone” like Earth that could possibly support life.

TIME magazine also ran an article about the booming field of “astrobiology,” and Washington Post news reporter Marc Kaufman has a book titled “First Contact,” both detailing the fact that scientists are more confident than ever that life does exist out in the universe. In his book, Kaufman predicts scientists will discover life on other planets within this century.

SETI accepts donations from the public if you want to contribute to their funding and help keep their alien-seeking radio dishes up and running.

Are you serious dude? 2012 is a conspiracy theory by the Illuminati just like 9/11. I have done extensive research and I'm disgusted by the Illuminati and their actions. God will destroy all of you and the time is soon. The Devil tricked all of you to go to hell with him. You think you are doing something powerful in this world because you are rich and worship him, but he is evil. I just can't wait until God wipes this plague from the beautiful Earth that has been tainted by his evil presence. Aliens don't exist! You are believing a lie to bring a one world currency brought about by the New world Order conspiracy of the Illuminati. It's sad that the humans that God loved so much would turn there backs on him for things that won't last forever. He is merciful and i hope he help some of the people that are corrupted by the evil in this world.

We are already in contact!! They are here and have been for awhile. We do not need SETI anymore. Alien technology is giving us the information we require, and soon I believe they will reveal themselves. Maybe Dec.21, 2012?

I think if there was Life somewhere else in the cosmos, God would have informed us in some way. The Illuminati have some plan concerning discovering Alien life. Can one of you Astrologers tell us anything about them? Or are they running this website also.

I find it imposible to believe Earth is the only location where the Universe has sprouted the great gift of Life. With the miracle which spins us all within, spins all without: without doubt!! It is in our evolution and education that will reviel the unknown, only as much is allowed to our limited and great abilities. Our Life cousins living " out there " are doing fine without us messing them up too. Let SETI take a nap for a bit and let us invest in our own heart, mind, and spirit consciousness; hence our own survival. Blessings all...
