University Course: Extraterrestrial Intelligence: Where Are They?
UFO Depiction
Published: 1:34 PM 10/30/2013

Yup. At University of Georgia.

Musing on the possibility of extraterrestrial (ET) intelligence in the vast universe is an interesting experience that most of us have had at least once in our lifetime.

Most daydreams on ET do not pass the stage of simple abstraction because of lacking relevant knowledge and information.

With this seminar course, students will:

(1) acquire basic knowledge about requirements for life in the universe;

(2) estimate the probability of ET civilizations in our galaxy;

(3) predict the success or failure of the on-going SETI program and actively participate in the debate on SETI;

(4) understand the Fermi Paradox and possible solutions to the paradox;

(5) critically evaluate UFO sightings, government cover-ups, and other similar hoaxes;

(6) eventually become much more learned about the subject so that he/she can act as a main intellectual figure in any future ET dialogues they may have in the future. The course will not have exams; however, students are asked to make two presentations (about 4 minutes long each) and to submit 4-5 reports (a half page long each).

(Special Note from Webmaster)

Recently, we have had some problems with our comments section. As I have stated before, I was reluctant to offer this section to start with. Some of our readers feel that they are being unfairly criticized.

Almost any site you visit that has a comments section is trying to keep things under control. One certain way is to have ALL posts sent to me for approval. The truth is, I don't have time, and neither does anyone else I know.

Then I have to judge what I see as fit or unfit. This is not my job, but yours. This is what we must do to keep the comments section going

When you comment, make your remarks related to the article on the page, NOT someone else's post. It's not that you can't comment on a comment, just keep the remarks to the subject/article at hand, and let others have their say without being afraid to make a comment.

Several of our readers have told me they are afraid to comment because of being ridiculed. Let's keep it civil.

thank you for your cooperation,
