“That's... entirely not how it works.”
Then their reaction made me think. Because I really think this little meme is accurate and what’s more, scientifically accurate. Let’s explore why. And please if you're reading this - comment, join the fray. Jump in because the waters of brain activity are a bubblin.
First - let's find out the mission of SETI as they say it.
Our mission is to explore, understand, and explain the origin and nature of life in the universe, and to apply the knowledge gained to inspire and guide present and future generations. We have a passion for discovery, and for sharing knowledge as scientific ambassadors to the public, the press, and the government. http://www.seti.org/about-us
Wow, I actually really like that. It is what every Christian (lover of the Creator) should be about as well. But there is a bit of evasion in their mission statement because the acronym of their name is the Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence - non earth life - to “explore, understand, and explain the origin and nature of life in the universe” that means a belief in life outside earth,of which there is little to no observable, repeatable, testable scientific proof. Or is there?
An interesting observation - they tie life to intelligence… and they should. We have never come across non- “intelligent” life. Well, some teenager may qualify. I am of course making the exception of single cell bacteria etc., though they are very complex communicative organisms on their own level. Because it is a scientific and natural law that information (life) comes from intelligence. Show me any example of information not born of intelligence. Well, um…. DNA ,crystal structure… nature's laws. My point exactly. What birthed them? Every time we can find the cause of information it has been inteligence, and thus this is what drives SETI. It also drove great scientists who believed in a Creator revealed in nature and in the Bible. Even though SETI has a large budget, when it comes to aliens / ET intelligent life, they are thinking way too small. They are looking for material beings, what I call in-dimensional beings like ourselves. They have ruled out inter-dimensional beings and Extra-dimensional beings like God.
But Seti is looking for scientific (material) evidence of life/intelligence in the universe. You Bible, creation people just live off faith.
Sorry to spoil your thought. Not true. Our belief, faith, trust is based on real observations, evidence, science and more. It is the more part that gets to some people.
But everyone is a supernaturalist, see my blog, Science: the HANDICAPPED observational system and CH 2 of The Supernaturals, and Ian Juby’s video… link below.

Why God, the Creator described it the Bible is the answer to SETI?
SETI is looking for some kind of intentional communication from an intelligence - a being. Would they know it if it slapped them across the face? Or died for them on a cross?
Christianity claims that an outer-dimensional (not just off earth) intelligence (a tri-uen being) has made contact with humanity. You may not have heard it put that way in sunday school.
Let's examine this entity (who and what it claims to be), and then the evidence for its existence and communication with us. Lots of amazing books have done this- this is just a summary. See the bibliography-references for some of these books.
This entity - being claims to be tri-une. One essence in three beings. So much in harmony and relationship and essence that they are indeed one. Yet they can interact and communicate as three separate beings. Ok am I wrong or is that not “alien” enough for you. That is really out there and “other” to the type of earthbound beings we know. This tri-une being is even more alien than the aliens we invent in our science-fiction movies and books.
Ok, moving on. This being claims to be super intelligent, to be the origin of all life, time space, matter and dimensions of reality. Basically this entity claims to be the origin or source of reality as we know it so far. That is a PRETTY big claim. That’s a pretty cool extraterrestrial entity. We will see how this being backs it up its claims. I would call this being the Creator or God, or better yet the Godhead or Yahweh, the I AM, but they you would get all religious on me and stop thinking of this as an alien entity.
In one of this entity’s communications it claims...
What kind of being could be the origin of earth bound biological life?
Peter Scheele explores this from a genetic and biological perspective in his book Degeneration: the end of evolution theory. http://www.originsunited.com/degeneration-the-end-of-evolution-theory.html
The DNA is only the physical carrier of the intelligence and knowledge that is hidden in it, it is not that intelligence itself, just as a computer program is the physical carrier of the intelligence put in to it but is not actually intelligent itself. Pg 117
12.2 A creator?
Regarding that alien, there are a couple of things we can derive from ‘his’ creation:
Geneticist co-inventor of the gene gun Dr. J.C. Sanford shows that all of life is genetically degenerating and thus must have had a supernatural origin in his book Genetic Entropy.
Ian Juby in his Youtube show Genesis Week shows how material evolutionist believe in processes that defy natural and scientific laws or can not be observed by science like the origin of life, informations systems like DNA arising from - well minerals, the origins of stars, the origin of the universe, dark matter and dark energy to name a few. These would be beliefs in the super-natural, on par with a christian's belief in God or miracles. Both are supernaturalists.

What kind of communication has this entity sent?
How does this Being back up it’s claims to be the source - an outer-dimensional being
It sees the past, present and future,because it exists outside of them.
The biggest is Prophecy - seen in Biblical records
The eye witness accounts of supernatural acts from old and new testaments and from people to today.
The scientific information found in the Bible that precedes their discovery by ancient or modern science, for example currents in the ocean. http://www.clarifyingchristianity.com/science.shtml
Lastly the witness of nature is one of theis Entities greatest communications, and that is what my site, www.originsunited.com is all about.
Romans 1:20 – For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse.
So start exploring and I hope you discover that learning is worship and communication with the most incredible alien out there.
You can make contact…
