I don't care if astronomers don't think that SETI signal is aliens, you and I both know it's coming from aliens and they are more than likely hostile. Be that as it may, I'm not worried one bit. Why? Our planet is covered with water and, if movies have taught me anything, it's that water kills aliens.
Paul Gilster at the website Centauri Dreams wrote about it as "an interesting SETI candidate"آ—meaning perhaps it came from an extraterrestrial civilization. That set off the media storm. But I have to tell you something: Astronomers don’t know much about that "SETI candidate" signal beyond that it’s made of radio waves. And while human beings should absolutely spend some time figuring out what this signal is, they have almost no reason to conclude it came from non-human beings.
