Hello Ray,
There you go again putting words in my mouth grow up. This is a quote
from your last e-mail: "the reason I directed people to your site, is the fact
that you seem to not accept that the signal was a hoax. So I feel that those
who believe as you
do need to go somewhere to discuss fiction between yourselves."

Well Ray we are here to discuss the science of SETI. You are treating this as a
religion. I do not believe in this HOAX!!! And, again I ask you do not put words
in my mouth, I established the Towards 2001 and Beyond club on Yahoo to discuss
our human future in space. Second I do not believe in pseudo science ( I belong
to several Skeptics groups), and I do not believe in flying saucers, and I have
a degree in Physics. I also teach Physics and Astronomy at the Manhattan Center
for Science and Mathematics High School in New York City, and am currently
involved in the creation of a new interdisciplinary science course entitled
"Planet Earth" with the American Museum of Natural History and the New York City
Board of education. So lay off.
