There was big excitement among the alien-believing crowd when Break Through Initiative announced in 2020 that it had discovered what it described as an ‘intriguing’ signal emanating from Proxima Centauri, which is the closest sun nearest the earth.
This suggested the possibility of alien life.
However, the Daily Mail is reporting that this was a false positive. Apparently, the signal picked up was coming from human devices.
The Daily Mail explains:
Researchers from the Breakthrough Listen Initiative said the ‘intriguing’ signal that was picked up in 2020 is likely just an ‘an artifact of Earth-based interference from human technologies.’
Dr Sofia Sheikh, a researcher with the Listen team, looked at the data set for the signals and found they are spaced at ‘regular frequency intervals.’
The intervals appear to correspond to multiples of frequencies used by oscillators commonly used in electronic devices.

This was a huge disappointment for atheists who claim they don’t believe in God because there is no evidence of His existence, while recent surveys, suggest 85% of them believe in little green men, despite the fact there is no evidence proving they exist.
