Dr. Drake postulates a credible potential for ET existence, but
retreats from ET actuality with a proclamation that they are not
allowed to function in a manner that we, in our boundless,
extensive, and complete physical knowledge <g>, consider
impossible! Now that seems a completely foolish take, given that
we ourselves daily function in a manner that we would have
considered impossible just one hundred years ago. Mr. Friedman
DOES seem to hold the high cards of sweet reason in comparison.
Dr. Drake, cognitively shows more courage, and certainly asks
tougher questions.
