Genetic information isn't limited to just DNA. Chimps and humans have RNA differences, DNA structural differences, and genetic expressional differences (epigenetics) that are all separate from DNA sequences. Simply put, we're not just 2% different genetically from chimps.

#4 ya his point is about something thing other than dna but hes used it as a point a person of average intelligence can comprehend.

He makes a bloody good point thought , Often I have thought what would an alien look at us like now I know Blithering idiots.

Maybe the small differences resides in communication/exchange abilities, so every one could be more specialized it its domain and very skilled, then we trade the results of our works, it's why we go so far.
Much better said in this:

So like, what does intelligence have to do with our DNA? It may be so that :) has 99% the same DNA as a :(|) or even 2 ::(|) , but DNA aint brainpower nor intelligence last i checked. My hair is a bird, your arguement is invalid

Well, maybe we find the aliens and discover that they are the drooling idiots.

Talk about dumbing down science, why do you all think this guy is so awesome?

I'm a star trek fan, and one of their Prime Directive dictates that there can be no interference with the internal development of pre-warp civilizations, to say that we can't have a conversation with aliens is just stupid, because we definitely can.

I believe that any sentient beings out there exploring the cosmos have rid themselves of characteristics such us killing their own, raping, murder, slavery,theft, HATE etc.

And I think that they would be aware of this fact as well the reason why we haven't been visited... but then again the star trek no interference rule might just be a good idea... who knows we might have already been visited by them before and is a factor in how our world is being shaped for the better... We will know one day though ;)

2% of 3 billion (base pairs on DNA) is 60 million. That's 60 million differences in base pairs. That's not "closely related" at all.
As a matter of fact, Tobacco has 48 chromosomes as does the chimp. (That is more closely related)

some say 1.5% difference, that's 45 million.

Just food for thought, not making an argument here :|

It is philosophy and ideology to discuss aliens (all good things of course), but it is not classified as science.

This guy does propose provocative thoughts :(|) :(|)

#11 - LOL

Our DNA may be the same but there is something more to our difference from monkeys and a whole science - epigenetics - studies it.

I love to listen to this guy he cameo's on the history channel and im hooked. I think it's not so much that other life forms don't want to visit us as the fact that the space between stars and solar systems is so damn vast that it would take generations to reach us even at near light speed. We're a desert island in the vast of the ocean of space.
