    Yet we still have some people pushing the "rare earth" hypothesis. Like here again.

    When you say given what we now know....

    Just because we learned something new does not mean it has not happened yet. It's not as if ET had to wait until we discovered how much larger the universe is, all the earth like planets and how much older than us they were, before they decided to stop by. They have been "routinely visiting" for centuries.


    A lot of us "crazy people" are just waiting for everyone else to catch up. Not because we want to say, "Told you so..." (although I admit that is going to be sweet) but, because we need to catch up before it's too late.

    I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to learn that all this covid pandemic was their idea to see how difficult or easy it would be to control the masses. Testing, testing, 123...

    But, then again, I'm one of the crazy ones who has been seeing ET for over 50 years already.

    Pft, deGrasse over estimates himself. It wouldn't even enter my mind to call him if it happened.
