Hi, Tim.

Did you read all of Mark's post. I didn't quote it, to save
bandwidth, but I was referring to all of it.

Mark thought arguments like Dennis's are too literal (my word,
not his). Since we have no context for alleged alien behavior --
we don't know anything about the aliens -- we can't assess
whether or not it's plausible. Mark also thought that aliens
might be have elements of play or art or humor in some of what
they do, and that anyone who expects them always to be logically
consistent hasn't allowed for those things.

But he said much more, and said it better than I can. Everyone,
I hope, will read all of what he said.
