      SETI urged to fess up over alien signals 'Mother lode' or load? By Ashlee

      Alien hunters today pounded the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial
      Intelligence) Institute here with e-mails and phone calls, following claims
      made this weekend that the organization has covered up the detection of
      signals from space.
      Allegations of a SETI cover up were made last night on the fringe-friendly
      Coast to Coast radio show hosted by Art Bell. During the broadcast,
      professional SETI watcher Steven Greer, the CEO of Space Energy Access
      Systems, claimed that insiders told him that SETI discovered a high
      concentration of signals from space, and that another organization stepped
      in to block those signals. SETI, however, maintains that it has not seen any
      signals of note.

      ';test=' + test + ';sz=336x280;tile=3;ord=' + rand + '?"
      According to Greer, the space communications have caused a major stir at
      SETI, which hunts for intelligent life in outer space.
      "They have had numerous extraterrestrial signals," Greer said, during the
      radio broadcast. "They were apparently searching in a spectrum or in an area
      . . . where they hit the mother lode. The signals were so numerous that they
      began to have their systems externally jammed by some sort of human agency
      that did not want them to continue receiving those signals."
      And where did Greer get this fantastic information? Apparently, from a
      well-known source within SETI.
      "This person, if I were to say who he is, almost every one your listeners
      would probably known the name," Greer said.
      Bell's Coast to Coast show is famed for dealing with matters that many
      would consider far from reality. The radio host has enjoyed a phenomenal
      career discussing ghosts, UFOs and things that go berserk in the night with
      an eclectic set of guests. But it's worth noting that Bell, who only hosts
      the show on the weekends now, and regular host George Noory often break
      stories such as the Dubai ports deal well before the national media.
      That's not the case this time around, according to SETI.
      "There's been nothing like that at all," said a spokesman, who described
      Greer, as "the bane of SETI's existence."
      Greer runs a SETI rival, if you will, called CSETI and often claims that
      SETI is withholding evidence of alien life from the public. His comments
      triggered a torrent of e-mails and phone calls to hit SETI today, according
      to the SETI spokesman.
      In this particular instance, the fine people at SETI seem a bit more
      tethered to the reality spectrum. Greer, after all, relied almost
      exclusively on hearsay in his discussion with Art Bell. In addition, Greer
      claimed that members of SETI were in on some type of conspiracy to keep
      alien life secret while at the same time being attacked by a third party
      trying to block alien signals from SETI. That's an awful lot of
      maneuvering - most of which makes little sense.
      That said, technophiles should enjoy guessing who Greer's secret source
      might be.
      Back in the day, SETI had serious backing from one of HP's early
      employees - Bernard Oliver. Over the years, the organization has received
      funds from such Silicon Valley institutions as NASA Ames, HP, Sun
      Microsystems, and the Gordon and Betty Moore foundation. Microsoft
      co-founder and space buff Paul Allen is also a major SETI backer.
      Sun's CTO Greg Papadopoulos is the current Chairman of SETI. Could aliens
      be responsible for Sun's recent sales spike? Let us know. ®
