Hi Ed

I was going to answer each individual points as they came, but
you are obviously a bit riled at what I wrote so I'll do you the
honour of giving it to you straight.

What I really wanted to say was : Its pretty bloody arrogant of
us as a human race to say that we are the only life in the whole
universe, and its even more arrogant to say that we are the most
intelligent life in the universe. So therefore why is the ETH an
unreasonalble theory. So my quoting the Drake equation was merely
to provide "an argument", nothing more, nothing less.

I am not a scientist, nor have I EVER claimed to be one, so I do
not need "real knowledge"(as you put it) to know that it it
possible. I also believe in God but nowhere will you find any
physical proof that he exists either.

If I made any mistakes in the Drake equation it is because I am
running on memory, the last time I saw that equation explained
was about eighteen months to two years ago, so if I made a basic
mistake in that his equation only went as far as "interstellar
communication" then sorry but I made a mistake.

Pray tell are you "one of those" who will not believe in anything
until you have physical proof in your own hands that whatever it
is is in existence? A blind man does not need to know that a swan
is white when everybody tells him it is so.


        Are you a man or a mouse, come on squeek up!
