Richard Dawkins & Neil deGrasse Tyson in a dialogue about alien life

I’ve been fortunate over a number of segments in my life to witness – even take a small part in – conversations like this. Not in front of an audience. Not as part of a public dialogue; but, in the context of what historically has been called a “salon”.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far away. Well, New England, actually. Where the talent pool for discussions like this is more accessible than most of the country.

Thanks, Mike

    Vatican Preparing Statement on Extraterrestrial Life Elsewhere: Creation Museum CEO Ken Ham Slams NASA Search for Alien Life as Unbiblical saying that God has intentionally not created life anywhere outside the Earth, and calling it a “desperate attempt to prove evolution.”

    “Could We Detect an Alien Civilization’s Waste Heat?” In a new study accepted for publication in The Astrophysical Journal, a team of astronomers headed by Jason Wright of the Center for Exoplanets and Habitable Worlds, Penn State University, argue the case for using survey data from NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) and Spitzer space telescopes to identify advanced extraterrestrial intelligences that have fully utilized all the energy from a star or even spread throughout their host galaxies.
