Subject: Changing Views

Hello List,

In the hurly-burly of skeptic media attacks and counter-attacks
it's easy to lose track of wider views changing. So was happily
surprised to find a last year's broadsheet article admitting -

"After decades of denial scientists are finally admitting that
there is life out there."


"Today, our understanding of the cosmos has changed so much that
for the first time searching for signs of life in other solar
systems is not just a philosopher's dream but on the list of
planned human endeavours. All the scientists I questioned agreed
that alien life is inevitable and ubiquitous."

and, warningly...

"As from 1927, we have been propagating outwards from Earth, a
very specific indicator of our existence. These radio waves have
since travelled 80 light years out into the universe. That is
going to encompass many hundreds of potentially habitable
planets," he said. "If there is intelligent life out there, they
sure as hell know we are here." (more at page)

In fact, from the work of Appleyard and others, it seems one or
two government advisors thought "they knew we were here" from
about 1947, which I think was also the start of the real
government disinformation and anti-Ufology campaigns in the US &
