I wonder where all the skeptics are?
It looks to me like everyone agrees that life could be found all over the place out there in the cosmos.
Even my infamous friend Nohup who constantly helps me stay grounded with his posts
agrees that it's certainly likely that there is life out there,
and he goes on to give us parameters for where he thinks we might find it!
So I guess I'm asking two questions here, the first being:
1) Anyone have any other ideas about good places to look for an ET Homeword? (The Original Question)
2) We do we allow ourselves as Proponents of the "UFO=Possible EBE Craft" theory to be pushed around by the argument of the skeptics who argue -
"They can't exist."
I'm not saying that all skeptics are like that, I happen to consider myself a skeptical researcher for the most part. But there are certainly some
who like to bully people with this argument. I propose that none of us continue to tolerate such ignorance. We should deny it.
The next time someone calls you a 'believer', correct them, and say, 'no, actually I'm a proponent of a hypothesis.'
The science is actually on the side of the Proponents for the most part, that EBE/ET/Aliens are out there.
The current paradigm of the scientific mainstream doesn't understand how 'they' could get here from 'there' (pick your favorite star system light
There really isn't anything in my mind to 'believe' about the issue at all, except the 'belief' that a species with a sufficient lead on humans
in evolution (say 1000 to 5000 years ahead) could have figured out a way to get here from there. And that doesn't sound as much to me like a
'belief' as it sounds like a logical conclusion following from the evidence of our own technological revolution over the past 1000 years.
At any rate, I guess I have two questions for all of you now
