Nope, there's still just one little bead on the right side of my abacus.
Even if my gut tells me otherwise... even when I am tempted to lean towards... even when I'm flabbergasted by the vastness of space, humbled by the
numbers of stars when looking up whilst zipping a brewsky or watching documentary after documentary, reading article after article about the infinite
uni- multi- whateverse whilst popping another, I need the sweet shattering sound of this hypothesis.
I can only hope that'll happen, for I rather hope than believe.
I agree, I hope it will happen also, as a person that does not follow organized religions, the existence of aliens is sort of my religion in a way. To
me, my personal opinion is that since you and I are alive, and considered an intelligent sentient being, that means that they must be alive. It seems
that the workings of biological bodies are made to evolve, in order to survive and improve the gene pool ect. and since something happened that made
our brains bigger making us intelligent,which means it must have happened somewhere else EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE NO CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE THAT THE MASSES
AGREE UPON. The hypothesis that we were genetically modified to be intelligent came from other intelligent beings would mean that we would not be the
first for that to happen. Either way it still means we somehow became intelligent.
My opinion is we are in just another stage of technological/biological evolution, just another point in time on the grand time-line of things, which
all intelligent species are a part of this time-line, where there are civilizations ahead of us and behind us. Now I hate to bring this into this, but
somewhat like the mayan calender, which predicts that the world will end, ofcourse the world will still be here after 2012, maybe instead of the world
ending it will end AS WE KNOW IT? now let me state that I do not believe in the mayan calender to be true or false, I would be pleased if it were true
though.As the true saying goes, it can't be like this way forever. . .change is a never ending force that controls us all.
What would change the world as we know it? Either a eco/manmade event where the masses die, Also new species of higher intelligent species coming to
uplift us technologically and change our warlike attitude and get rid of our nuclear weapons so we do not kill ourselves would change our world as we
know it too. I've read about missile silos across the globe have had reports of unidentified objects hovering above the silos and after they leave
the missiles are disabled and have to be removed. Which if you believe this crazy sh*t would fit into the story.
The best part of this is it has a possibility to be real,although it does not sound likely. The common person would never join the bandwaggon, as they
do not spend the time to think about what could be out their, but there are people like me with nothing to do and just think about this, which is why
what i've said you have heard already and de-bunked it or agreed with it or you are transparent in which they see both sides of the fence and open to
anything[which I tend to lean on], which when it boils down to it you're either doing one or the other.
Also to answer "Stating that a picture of earth with moon from afar proves there is life out there in the universe, as the person I reacted on did,
didn't shatter anything." No it does not bluntly prove that there is other life out in those stars, but it shows us that the possibility is there,
which is why we're here in the first place right?
What do you think? Personal stabs, ridicule allowed but not welcomed.
