Question

Hi Everyone,



Look at this link!

http://www.guardian.co.uk/Education/...068471,00.html

Three question:-

a) Are there aliens out there?

b) Do they look like THAT!?

c) If we met intellegent life - would we recognise it?

My answer to c) would be that no, we wouldn't recognise intelligent life because we, as humans, believe that we are the highest in the intelligence scale and so would overlook other intelligences in our blatantly bigheaded nature

Of course, not all of us are like that, and I reckon that this forum's just about scooped up all the non-conformers

A classic quote from Calvin & Hobbes:

"The most convincing evidence that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that they haven't tried to contact us."

The THEORY is that I face intelligent life every time I stand before my college students. The jury is still out on this subject...Maybe it will take us a super-long time to recognize intelligent life? Maybe will entail redefining "intelligent" ?

About my students--I'm only joking!

Extraterrestrials do in fact exist...

Some look like humans, most don't...

PS: Earth is a colony...
