1. Yes. You are definitely missing the point of his comment. But, I'll bite.

2. You are suggesting that I shouldn't rule out something that is both a) unknowable and b) untestable, when it is well known that scientific knowledge (which an AI made by humans certainly falls under) progresses by the testability of known and knowable quantities. Also, his comment was to the original article, which is also taking a far more pragmatic view than making comparisons to aliens we'll never meet.
