Why would any rational person believe that aliens would send
radio signals to us using technology that was only 112 years-old?

Marconi's first radio transmission across the Atlantic was in
1901. Stars just down the street are a billion years older than
the sun. Not many scientists use slide rules any more. Lasers
are not just better light bulbs...

Technological progress comes from doing things differently in an
unpredictable way. SETI is truly a Silly Effort To Investigate...
Keeps the funding coming...

There is a detailed discussion in my book Flying Saucers And
Science.
