Communication With Non-Terrestrials

I was intrigued by poll results that were posted by The Huffington Post today:

Humans have been searching for signs of life on other planets at least since the 1960s, when scientists began scanning the heavens for radio signals that might be evidence of extraterrestrial beings. Scientists even have tried to reach out to aliens by sending out radio messages, beginning with transmissions made in 1974.

But does it make sense for us to try to establish contact with alien life? A new HuffPost/YouGov poll shows that many Americans have their doubts.

It's not that Americans don't think intelligent life exists beyond Earth. Fifty percent think intelligent life is out there somewhere, the poll shows. Nineteen percent think there's no intelligent alien life, and 31 percent say they're not sure.

And 46 percent think it would be possible for humans to contact intelligent aliens. But only 37 percent think it's a good idea to try. Twenty-seven percent said it's a bad idea, while 36 percent aren't sure whether it's a good or bad idea.

Americans who think attempting to contact alien life is a bad idea had differing reasons for saying so. Eight percent of all Americans said it would be a waste of time to try because intelligent life is unlikely to exist. Another 8 percent said they think it might be dangerous, because our efforts might alert unfriendly aliens to our presence.

Five percent said an alien contact program would be a waste of money even if it did work, and 2 percent said it would be too difficult because we lack the necessary technology. Another 2 percent said it would be a bad idea for some other reason.

The poll shows that men are more likely than women to believe intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe (58 percent to 43 percent) and to think that it would be possible to contact extraterrestrial life (53 percent to 40 percent). Forty-one percent of men and 33 percent of women said it's a good idea to try to contact other intelligent life forms, but those who said it was a bad idea gave similar reasons for why.

The HuffPost/YouGov poll was conducted July 17-19 among 1,000 U.S. adults using a sample selected from YouGov's opt-in online panel to match the demographics and other characteristics of the adult U.S. population. Factors considered include age, race, gender, education, employment, income, marital status, number of children, voter registration, time and location of Internet access, interest in politics, religion and church attendance. - THP

The fact that only 37% of Americans believe that contacting extraterrestrials is a good idea gives me some hope that wiser minds are out there.

At one time, I was gung-ho on the idea of sending signals and 'Pioneer Plaques' into space, hoping for a positive result. The Carl Sagan 'Cosmos' series fascinated me and piqued my interests. SETI's continued efforts (as well as the movie 'Contact') were inspirations of the good that could be gained by consorting with alien races. That enthusiasm ended after my research and investigation of the David Eckhart & Family ordeal.

Subsequent investigations have bolstered my thinking on the subject, leading to this conclusion...that we are merely fodder to the majority of non-terrestrials.

Now...before you start writing, I do want to note that I believe there are beings who, to a degree, are looking after us. I sincerely accept the premise that our future descendants, in whatever physical form they evolved to, are initiating efforts to reverse certain events that were detrimental in their history.

That stated...yes, I do conclude that some forms of time travel will be fabricated and eventually be used to augment earlier segments of human history. In fact, I believe it has already occurred numerous times.

Our future is an agenda that will be played out as designed. Those leaders & bureaucrats who do not conform to this timetable will be asterisks on future records.

It is truly a New World Order...but on a scale that includes other times and other worlds. Lon

  1. I agree with you.

    it is also the same with technology and the supernatural-
    pragmatism dominates humanity's research and exploration.

    Whatever gives the greatest results with the least amount of effort and expense is pursued blindly in spite of extreme consequences.

    Wishful thinking can be so dangerous-
    romanticized bias is still bias...
    as is objectified bias,as well.

    As humanity recklessly dabbles with extreme powers and their inevitable consequences,
    the old adage is far too often proven true:
    "Fools rush in where angels
    fear to tread".

  2. Does that mean the David Eckhart story was bogus? I always wondered if the stories he told were true....

    I worry for my son's future, he's only thirteen and I wonder what this crazy world will be like in the years to come.


  3. Quite the contrary...David's experiences were proof to me that we are simply commodities to the non-terrestrials. Much of the details of David's encounters have never been disclosed...for a myriad of reasons.
