Apparently, aliens are concerned that Notre Dame is ranked so high in the BCS poll released yesterday.

Like the Star Trek movie, where the crew is hijacked to go to the center of the galaxy and finds a planet with a god like creature that's been banished there for all eternity? *gasps for breath*

Whew!

(P.S. I never knew there was a center to the universe)

Hey you Earthlings!

Signed,

SETI would not be making any large statements without really strong evidence.
They would be very cautious seeing what happened to Jodie Foster in Contact. :)

Someone please define "center of the Universe." Where, exactly, is that?

Albert Einstein once said "There are two things that are infinite. One is the Universe and the other is human stupidity. And I'm not sure about the Universe."

So maybe it does have a center.

It's located directly above the center of the earth.

Are you sure you don't mean near the center of our galaxy? Seriously, all I see there is major SETI announcement. Couldn't that be that they've formed a partnership with someone or they're expanding or something like that?

I, for one, would welcome such an announcement from SETI.

Hopefully, it will make the Islamonazis implode their facade of a religion.

In any event, such an announcemnt from SETI would be a life altering event.

I do not know how to respond to this. The serious side of me is doubtful of this. The homours side of me says that they are calling to say, the universe's problems are Bush's fault. ;-)

But really if a signal from an intelgent lifeform would change the way that we see the universe. Plus the history of mankind could be changed radically. We would not be the only intelgent spicies out here at all, and maybe [just] maybe all of us who have seen things in the skies may not all be crazy! Untill I hear more I will just be standing by for the standby, to recieve information.
But also remember what President Reagan said once at the u.n. about what it would take to unite the whole planet in peace....

Can't tell you who, but they work for the institute, they are currently verifying it according to him through NASA as to rule out any sort of Earth transmission somehow being reflected back at us.
