Is There Intelligent Life on Earth?

CNN reported today that NASA is thinking about funding the SETI Institute so it can continue its Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence in the universe. Frankly, we question the wisdom of using taxpayer money to support an organization whose mission is to "explore, understand and explain the origin, nature and prevalence of life in the universe."

First of all, what makes them think that life is prevalent - or widespread - in the universe? SETI began its search for extraterrestrial intelligence 24 years ago. The only extraterrestrial life they've ever found was in the movie Contact - a fictional screenplay by Carl Sagan, who came face to face with highly intelligent extraterrestrial life when he died in 1996.

SETI's mission statement goes on to state, "We believe we are conducting the most profound search in human history - to know our beginnings and our place among the stars."

Well, if the mission of SETI is to "know our beginnings," why don't they begin in the book of beginnings - the Bible book of Genesis? And if they want to know "our place among the stars," well, that's covered in the Bible, too. At its heart, SETI is just another program that believes the Bible to be irrelevant and Bible-believers to be ignorant.

So we want to know if there's intelligent terrestrial life at SETI. After all, how intelligent is it to search the depths of space for answers that are in plain view right here on earth?

Those are our thoughts. What are yours?
