They're Made Out Of Meat

"There's no doubt about it. We picked up several from different parts of the planet, took them aboard our recon vessels, and probed them all the way through. They're completely meat."

"That's impossible. What about the radio signals? The messages to the stars?"

"They use the radio waves to talk, but the signals don't come from them. The signals come from machines."

"So who made the machines? That's who we want to contact."

"They made the machines. That's what I'm trying to tell you. Meat made the machines."

"That's ridiculous. How can meat make a machine? You're asking me to believe in sentient meat."

"I'm not asking you, I'm telling you. These creatures are the only sentient race in that sector and they're made out of meat."

And to go along with that interesting story, try the movie version.


Are we alone?

I sometimes try to think up reasons why we haven't been contacted by aliens: Earth happens to be in a "Neutral Zone"; we're not advanced enough to be interesting; we've been quarantined for some reason; Earth is so far off the normal "shipping lanes" that we just haven't been noticed yet; etc.

But I hadn't thought of us being made of meat!!
