Where are they?
The New Genesis Foundation
Many    scientists    believe    that    there    must    be    thousands    or    maybe    even millions   of   extraterrestrial   civilizations   in   the   Universe.   They   must   be   there because   we   have   been   told   by   evolutionists   that   liquid   water   and   correct temperature   are   the   key   conditions   required   to   breed   another   intelligent race. The   search   for   aliens   is   becoming   more   and   more   popular.   About   60   years ago   the   SETI   (   Search   for   Extra   Terrestrial   Intelligence)   program   was   started which    uses    radio    telescopes    to    search    for    signals    from    other    stars    and galaxies.   The   search   is   based   on   an   assumption   that   any   extraterrestrial civilization   which   wants   to   communicate   with   other   civilizations   will   use radio   or   microwave   signals   similar   to   ours.   So   far,   this   program   has   not provided   any   evidence   for   the   existence   of   extraterrestrial   civilizations.      In spite    of    this    setback    our    fascination    with    extraterrestrial    life    has    not diminished.   This   is   reflected   by   an   initiative   instigated   in   2015   by   physicist Stephen   Hawking   calling   for   a   more   intensive   search   for   aliens.   So,   we must    believe    in    the    existence    of    aliens    otherwise    why    would    we    keep spending   many   millions   of   dollars,   employ   hundreds   of   scientists   and   use very   expensive   equipment,   which   could   perform   other   important   scientific tasks, on finding them?

When water was discovered on Mars, people got very excited. Where there is water, there may be life. Scientists are planning new missions to study the planet up close. NASA’s next Mars rover is scheduled to arrive in 2010. In the decade following, a Mars Sample Return mission might be launched, which would use robotic systems to collect samples of Martian rocks, soils, and atmosphere, and return them to Earth. We could then analyze the sample to see if it contains any traces of life, whether extinct or still active. Such a discovery would be of tremendous scientific significance. What could be more fascinating than discovering life that had evolved entirely independently of life here on Earth? Many people would also find it heartening to learn that we are not entirely alone in this vast cold cosmos.
