    SETI is all about disinformation, tell the listening world they have found nothing. Let the government keep control of our fragile society. They can't for one moment allow us mere mortals to think that there may be something more powerful than them.
    The fact is, SETI, NASA and probably most of our world governments have known we are not alone for more than half a century.
    Watch the 'Disclosure Project' videos on Google Video to have your eyes opened.
