I find this to be an interesting method of calculating the number of possible contacts from an alien civilization. The interactive sliders give you a quick way of running the probability of an alien contact.
If you consider any part of the sequence of events to be highly unlikely. ie. Place the probability near but not on zero. The other events have to be slid toward probable to allow even the slightest possibilty of a radio or other waveform contact. I believe that this indicates that we tinker with the numbers until we get the conclusion we desire.
My personal take on the whole thing is that intellegent life capable of communication didn't evolve here or any where else.
