While I would agree that we have no knowledge of how a non-carbon based life form, with water as a medium, could exist given our current level of knowledge. Most of the scientists I've seen leave the door open to something that we currently don't understand. I haven't followed the original thread in depth, but the smell of sulphur is often present in volcanic regions, which also feature earthquakes and tremors, which could easily lead to the conclusion that "demons" or the "gods" are associated with that odor. Maybe it's a matter of trying to identify something that can't be understood by the current level of technology or understanding of the physical world, but that argument has also been applied to those who are trying to identify lights in the sky today. Given the size of the Universe I would agree that meeting some sort of AI life form may be more likely than some organic life form that relies on an organic process support as it travels through space. That being said, I'm not prepared to reject the many anomalies we often see discussed here. We've come a long way in our search for knowledge, but I suspect we've just scratched the surface and figuring out a few things doesn't equate to getting it all figured out.
