This is a fun video about ETs from Al Jazeera http://www.aljazeera.com/video/americas/2013/04/20134302349604843.html
I'm an agnostic on ETs myself.
I think that in some respects the ET debate is a distraction.
Too often ETs are depicted as race-destroying villains or saviors.
In truth, we are the ones that inhabit those roles.
Humanity needs to look to itself for salvation from the problems it has engineered.
Consider our circumstances from the ETs perspective:
Would you want to save an alien race that is aggressively plundering and destroying its own home ecosystem?
Would you want to save a race that is content to allow half of its own members to suffer gross malnutrition and starvation?
Would you want to save a race with such corrupted leadership?
Would you want to save a race so content to be led to its own extinction?
I think that if aliens do exist, they are not likely to regard homo sapiens as a race worth saving.
The truth that matters is right here on planet earth.
