I just noticed this is in the Aliens and Ufos section, hmmm, not sure that is respectful.
Well you do have the ability to post in the other forum, just started a few minutes before your post.
It's not disrespectful, Edgar happened to believe in the probability of alien life, even as being here in another time. 70 years ago that would have
been snorted at, given the knowledge of the day, possibly with entrenched views on religion, but certainly snorted on.
It's not so long ago, that the end of a habitable Earth was around 600 million to 700 million from now, that figure is now put at..variously from 1.5
billion to 3.0 billion+ all according to who you talk to, much longer than the need for intelligent life to rise and fall as thought previously.
Plenty of scope there for Edgar Mitchell to be correct in some of his ideas, given a planet such as the new survivability Earth as the example.
One and a half thousand years ago, we had scratchings from Ezekiel, in recent modern parlance considered as someone 'stoned' most of the time, since a
lot of what he said didn't make sense, now we could just say sublime.
