Not smart. Its a cute idea but has anyone considered how idiotic it is just to flag down the attention of any nearby civilisation  without having a clue whats around us? Odds are intelligence rises from predatory behavior. This is like going in the woods at night and calling for anyone to hear you. The timid will avoid you and the predators will try to eat you. They are gambling with our whole planet here with no clue who could spot us.

Isn't it a bit paranoid to think a space faring species will automatically be hostile.

Hi Xeno

I would exercise caution, remember there were those rebels that were exiled from Urantia. Dealing with them might be a nasty bit of work.:whistle:

If any species is going to be hostile to other planetary visitors, it'll be us.

Yeah I can see it all now, some aliens show up and some earthlings ply them with women and booze then jack their ride when they're passed out.:lol:

Why would we want to attract attention? Best practice would be to observe the Aliens first so we know they have peaceful intent.

Any species that has reached the pinnacle of their particular evolutionary tree will be inherently violent.

LOL sad but true. Were so hostile and out of control they might of just passed us up. If they locked into our TV shows from the past 20 years they would be afraid to even get close. Rupauls drag show alone probably scared the hell out of them

Well, using the only sentient species we are aware of (humans, dolphins and lamas)  we can safely assume that they’ll be at the very least miserly and likely to spit on you (Lamas), if not homicidal (humans) rapists (Dolphins).

No.:lol:

I was eluding to something beyond our normal idea of intelligent life. Something that might have develop on a world like ours but just a little different. To be honest. I think the only alien life we'll probably ever see/come across will be microbial. Then the problem become "Did we do this on accident".

That's an interesting statement. But do you mean violent in the sense of killing others of the same species ?

Because we humans are curious on principle. Curiosity has been and will remain the fuel of our further development. 200k years ago we humans have sit in the mud and said: "mphf-blmblm-(burb)-grunz", today we do neurosurgery, spaceflight and are sitting in front of nice flat screens and communicate with each other across oceans within milliseconds, like here on UM. Because of the results of curiosity in the past.

And, why do you think that an extraterrestrial civilization that would be capable to receive and to understand messages from Earth be capable to perform interstellar spaceflight as well?
