Has anyone else heard about this?

Quote:
"They have had numerous extraterrestrial signals," Greer said, during the radio broadcast. "They were apparently searching in a spectrum or in an area . . . where they hit the mother lode. The signals were so numerous that they began to have their systems externally jammed by some sort of human agency that did not want them to continue receiving those signals."

Who do we believe??

I am good friends with a key SETI astronomer and I can assure everyone here that there is no cover up.

So far, the only signal that came close to an extra-terrestrial signal is the infamous WOW signal: http://www.bigear.org/wow.htm

It was never confirmed, nor did it occur again so it is assumed to have been a transient event of some origin other than extra-terrestrial.

But the answer is no, I have not heard about this.

It would be pretty irresponsible to announce such a discovery in that manner. Once again, Rating$ outweigh Truth.

having had listened to art bell on numerous occasions while driving late at night I can honestly say most of his guests are whacked. In fact I would ave to say he puts these freaks on just to get a laugh.

And if theres such a coverup why have an Art Bell SETI team.

but now that the cat is out of the bag, the aliens are comming, and they are after our jobs, I for one say they can have them. however some folks in washington want to atempt to build a wall to keep them out...

If they are hurting for cash so bad, wouldn't finding and exposing some promising sign be a possible end to this problem?
