While reading "The Demon-haunted World" by Carl Sagan. I came across this line: " Are there humans populating innumerable other planets, as the Latter Day Saints teach?" (page 275 in paperback).
I guess that explains their interest in SETI.
I'm convinced of one thing, there's far more intelligence out there in the universe than there is in congress.
