: How many here are familiar with the Drake equation?

: It is explained at:

: http://www.flash.net/~shooper1/projects/drake.html

: : I personally have never seen a UFO or ET. This does not however in any way cause me to postulate that they cannot exist. Probability would seem to demand otherwise. I would think it foolish to insist that their existence could not be so, even in the absence (in my case) of any direct evidence.

: Does anyone here have any comments on the drake equation itself?

What do you want to know about the Drake (capitol D") equation? Recent events have lent credence to it's validity. If anything, it is conservative in it's hypotheses. Remember, you are from Earth (presumably), others may not be. But, are they "aliens" than in the INS definition of 'alien'?
