So I have been hearing over and over again that scientist are predicting we will be contacted by ETs sometime between 2020 and 2025...

Why? What is going to be so profoundly different in the next 6 years that's going to make ETs decide we're worth talking to?

Aliens could turn up outside the White House Kremlin People's Square in Beijing* and say "take us to the leader, we come in peace" in Mandarin tomorrow. Or seven minutes from now.
"2020" is no more an important date then 2012 or 2000.




*because it's the centre of governance for the largest population on the planet.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

They're probably still trying to figure if we're worth talking to or just exterminating.

Somebody has been watching too much Star Trek and figures we'll be on the verge of
space exploration by then.  I have several problems with such thinking chief of which it's
not entirely logical that aliens would necessarily follow the prime directive as expressed
by Roddenberry.

I could probably agree the odds increase but then the odds we'll simply be anihilated
probably increase as well.

Aliens might not be as interested in "contact" as we are. If human minds are capable of
nearly any sort of thinking one can only guess at what aliens might find of interest.

The odds of contact now are low and might remain so until we go knocking.

Who knows?

I don't see any reason to believe that date would any more probable than any other. We might find something on the Moons of S and J but we may have to wait many, many generations before we get robotic craft  out to the nearer systems.

People aren't dismissing your theme out of hand, they are dismissing it because it has no basis in reality. You continue to take the worst translation (Mercer's) of a multiply sourced and combined text written in a language you know nothing about and from 150 years after the GP's construction and pretend, while ignoring that it is found in the tomb and addressed to Unis, that its a construction manual for an object (the GP) 150 years before Unis' reign. You are the reason your theme isn't taken seriously as you've not shown any knowledge of the subject at hand and therein lies your problem....................................................................Cormac mac airt......................2015

I think scientists have speculated we will find signs of alien life in 20 years (radio signal, fossils, other signs), not a meet and greet with green men.  

We have to find each other before we can even talk about conquering the massive distances that will inhibit meeting and communication. Any detection is likely to be from something hundreds, thousands or even millions of years ago.
