Hi Dick,

I say there's no evidence that they come from other star
systems. I don't believe they can get here from, but I don't
care if others believe. I also don't believe (have faith) in
fairies, ghosts, other dimensions, time travel or god, but It's
not a problem for me when other folks have these beliefs.
They're only a problem when they limit my beliefs or actions.

What is my "false assumption"? I agree that we are being
visited. You have faith in the ETH, without any evidence that it
could be true and no scientific underpinnings. I have suggested
that a better possibility is an ancient hominid civilization.
There are no scientific reasons this hypothesis is false. I
realize that it hasn't been sanctioned by an authority, but
there's nothing inherently false about it. It may not be what
you want to believe. I don't mind. But if you're going to imply
the hypothesis is false, then supply reasons and evidence. Many,
perhaps the vast majority, on this List disagree with my
assumptions but that doesn't mean the hypothesis is false.

I don't understand the fervent reaction; I thought it would be
ho-hum. I'm glad it has generated some interest.
