Bacteria the Size of a Whale?
Genesis 1:20

Imagine the uproar, the sound of corks popping out of champagne bottles, the cheers, the hugs and the high-fives. Now imagine that you interrupt the celebration by saying: "Excuse me, but how do you know for sure you've found signs of extraterrestrial life? Maybe this only appears to be a message. After all, don't you agree with Richard Dawkins that 'biology is the study of complicated things that give the appearance of having been designed for a purpose'?" It's not difficult to imagine what would happen next. Two security guards come out of the shadows, grab your arms and march you out of the building. The point we're trying to make in this scenario is that most scientists aren't really searching for the truth. They're looking for evidence to support their evolutionary presuppositions. So get it out of your mind that scientists are objective truth-seekers in white lab coats. They have an agenda - to get rid of God in any way they can. We can only imagine what SETI scientists would do if the complete message said: "Greetings, Earthlings - this is God." We have no doubt they would start searching for the joker who was playing a trick on them.
