They're colleagues working closely together. I liked the interviewer because he thoroughly understands the subjects they discuss and has very probing questions. Heh, they discuss "The God Delusion". Hang in there 'til the end for the part about cancer - they collaborated on a paper on it.

I'm at the end.
I think he's a bad interviewer because he shoved his ideas into the discussion by interrupting Davies too often.
Gee i wanted him to shut up several times.

Whereas some people will defend SETI in its entirety simply because "scientists are doing it"(Interbane, Lanroid).


I've said many times that I don't think SETI will find anything, and that the search is based on luck. It's a gamble. It's not scientific in it's entirety, but it uses science in various parts of its operation. Is that enough to say it's a science program? I think so.

Who wants to bet me that if life evolves on other planets the same way as on earth that somewhere in the universe is a unicorn and a fairy?

I win because i wont stop searching as long as someone gives me money to keep searching.


I'd bet you or give you money if I were a billionaire... maybe.
