The Origins Institute at McMaster University hosted a talk by Jill Tartar, head of the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) program in the US.
It was an excellent presentation. She was clear, and entertaining. It is obvious that it has been her efforts that have maintained the SETI program despite, in over 40 years of looking and billions of dollars of funding, this program has had ZERO success.
Her efforts remind me of the similar amount of time and resources that have been devoted to proving that the theory of evolution is a scientific fact.
NOW, OVER 150 YEARS AFTER THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES WAS PUBLISHED, WE STILL HAVE NO SCIENTIFIC PROOF FOR EVOLUTION.
