Seeking ET beyond the radio silence

Some scientists believe the key to finding extraterrestrial life is to search in our own back yard.

In addition to always looking skyward, as SETI does, some scientists believe that looking for evidence of prior occupation here on Earth could move us closer to discovering other life beyond our own planet. Paul Davies, a physicist and cosmologist, believes that because of the age of the universe it is possible that aliens were here long before we were.

"Any intelligent extraterrestrial life that exists probably won't announce itself by blowing up the White House, or win over the hearts of children as a lovable alien with a glowing finger."

in that article it says something about them looking for clues here like genetic tinkering ect. am i not right in saying there has actually never been solid solid evidence that we evolved from apes? like there is a gap or something in the evolutionary path where there is no explanation of how we became how we are today? we could be the evidence of a past alien visitation.....oooo spooky

I dont believe that we evolved from apes either,consider an alien ship passing and dropping off a few people to see how long they would survive on this hostile world,by that I mean everything here eats to survive...and we are the best predators on the planet

yeah i bet we are just some sort of experiment created by who ever was the first to become in this universal existence. If there is ever going to be an end to this universe, that means there has to be a beggining and therefor somewhere in this universe is the oldest place ever, in this universe, and i think whoever is the oldest species/race what have you, is our "seeder" make sence? lol older being wiser and all that

Radio messaages? Just look at the overwhelming evidence found among people here on the Earth to support E.T life, ie: the ufo phenomena etc. Radio telescopes - pfft.

@ ollyhw45, oyu are absolutly right, although are genetics are extremly similar to apes, there is one slight differance. we humans have 24 chromosomes were as apes have 26. Chromosomes are liek organic data drive. the differance between us and apes is that we have 26 choromosomes of data sotred into 24 chromosomes this is the x and y chromosomes. Almost like 2 chromosomes fussed together. question is.... is how? in all of nature there is nothing similar. aswell are mitochondrial dna only dates back aprox 150/250000 years. so this evolutionary therory of darwin has a couple of missing links. su...

I'd like to introduce you to a very valuable word. The word is our. In some dialects this word may sound very similar to the word are, but it is actually a completely different word. Proper usage of this word can help to clarify when you are talking about our ancestors or our genetics. Hope my comment was helpful. Oh, and yes, we do appear to have a genetic similarity with the great apes. We have 46 chromosomes (two 23 chromosome pairs) and other primates have 48 chromosomes (two 24 chromosome pairs). Yes, it appears as though human chromosome 2 is a fusion of other primate chromosomes, which ... [More]

This is typical of the propaganda of the acdaemic community. They know that the majority of the people believe in aliens such as a poll on this site which shows 65% believe they exist. But these people are tax payers and they pay their salaries so they have go keep them happy. They tell us they are looking for evidence of aliens here on earth. But when they are shown such evidence they become vicious and they do everything in their power to discredit this evidence. If aliens were were here in our past it would explain Atlantis and other advanced civilizations. And technology would also be very... [More]
