Good point! It is my understanding that modern science does not claim knowledge of any events prior to the big bang, nor does it claim that such a region of spacetime (or meta-spacetime, or whatever) exists at all. My understanding certainly could be wrong, but if not, it seems to simply suggest that the author of the article doesn't really know what he's talking about.

I think he meant "ask that question and also verify that the answer is yes", but in the case of broadcasters, it's clearly no. I don't think any modern citizen has any say over what is transmitted through their property. Seems like probably a good thing to me, though...

I saw the "they can find the jammer but not me" angle pretty easily, but not the next thing you said. Just curious, how might you make it truly impossible to find the source of the signal, with multiple antennae? Do you think it would still be impossible if the searchers considered the possibility of multiple antennae? If that's an impossible problem to solve, the reason isn't obvious to me, I wonder if you could explain why?
