Earth is in Space. Here is a wild thought, instead of wasting trillions of dollars searching beyond our atmosphere for intelligent life, why don't we
search Earth for signs of intelligent life?
We have several 1000's species right here. We have oceans and lakes and deserts and mountains and volcano's and strange artifacts and megaliths and
canyons and pyramids that are still unexplained, why do we need to look anywhere else for things to explore?
So we can have arguments about the rings of Saturn? So we can talk about the pareidolia effects on Mar's? So we can debate the existence of Earth
like atmospheres on other planets? Why do black holes behave the way they do?
Does any of this actually serve our best interest? Not one bit.
We have so much here on this planet that we have yet to explain or explore, Earth, the 3rd rock from the Sun, that is in space, right here under our
very own noses.
Do we really need to find other planets to colonize? To destroy? To exploit? Do we not have our own planet right here that we can do that to?
Don't you think we should try to take care of Earth first before we set out to explore other places in space? Don't you think we should try to
understand our own species first?
I think the extent of our exploration should be telescopes and admiring the beauty of the stars from Earth. Some things should just be left to
imagination. Okay, I will admit one thing, I am fascinated with the pictures that Hubble sends us, but this notion that humans have any business
trying to actually visit other space territories is ridiculous when we have not even taken the time to understand our very own existence and how we
can survive here under these atmospheric conditions with our own species.
