My guest tonight Is here to talk about hunting for aliens in outer space I say we keep them out of the space wall please welcome Seth Shostak! Seth Shostak, thanks for coming on look what we've got here, the name of your book is "Confessions of an Alien Hunter" ..."a scientist's search for extraterrestrial life" you're an alien hunter so tell me how many aliens heads do you have on the wall of your tent? anything? it's pretty bare I have to say not yet, not yet, but within two thousand years that answer might change or within two thousand years you wouldn't be there, you never know in which case ... it's very hopefull to say that eventually I would hunt that snipe they may not exist in which case your life is meaningless no offense, I'm just laying it out there man I'm glad you could just be... you know... pissing in the wind here could be, Stephen, but look at this way, there are trillion planets on our galaxy that's a vast number says you it's in your interest to think that yeah, maybe it is but the astronomers... I have a lot of astronomers who are backing me up on that now, most of them are going to be pretty worthless...Neptune, Mercury...pretty worthless but in a trillion planets some of them are going to be ok some are going to be something like the Earth unless this is a miracle, you think this is a miracle? I do think this is a miracle created by God in six days yes my friend that what I call a miracle, ok? that's one of the things that bugs me about this is why why, you know is science just continues to make mankind insignificant I mean, we used to be...we were just like Jerusalem was the center of the world on old maps and the Earth was the center of the Universe, then the Sun was the center of the Universe
