I find people whom catagorically state ET will never come here and has never been here are in the same boat as people whom believe a space ghost named

God damn that flying spaghetti monster. Oops, I think I stood on your opinion, sorry.. I'll try harder next time
Keep a open mind, keep it open both ways, and simply see what is revealed without a belief system demanding you frame it into a context you
Nah, I'll keep a level head - one that does not require me to go insane in order to justify things that are simply not even on the table. A planet 20
light years away, is NOT an opening for disclosure.... Even if it has monkeys on it. Or flying monkeys even.. Or flying monkeys with guitars...
Right now, we have some credible people saying interesting things...this is no different, but time does not reduce the implications of their
We have work on various quantum fields that could one day be used to achieve FTL travel without breaking the laws of physics
We live in a vast universe of mind boggling chances
and now we have found one of our neighboring planet is in a perfect zone for potential life..enough that people are potentially putting their academic
career on the line
"Personally, given the ubiquity and propensity of life to flourish wherever it can, I would say, my own personal feeling is that the chances of life
on this planet are 100 percent," said Steven Vogt, a professor of astronomy and astrophysics at the University of California, Santa Cruz, during a
press briefing today. "I have almost no doubt about it."
1+1=2 of course, and it must equal 5 before your guitar barbecue comes into play, but with us at 2 and more numbers on the way, are you absolutely
comfortable catagorically stating it will never happen?
What on earth was all that in aid of? The general public, or some sort of indoctrination for my eyes only?
Since you quoted ME and took a swing, it's obvious you did not read my previous posts.. Or have a muscleman situation going on with the OP. I dunno,
he's saying one thing which I disagree with, and instead of dissecting it rationally, you're trying to throw the book at me? Lmao..
I wrote that book... I'm just tired of the addendum's.. oO
Here's a recap. I believe it is entirely arrogant of humans to assume we are alone in this cosmos. It is also arrogant to assume that we are the only
intelligent beings. These things I accept as given, knowing full well the astonishing numbers of planets that *MAY* support life... Billions upon
BUT they are not going to arrive now that we've be told news of 1 planet that *MAY* support life. Which was the OP's opinion in his OP and
Have they been here? From another planet, I can only speculate and say No. The evidence is lacking at best, but still compelling to consider. Which is
why your preconceived notion of what I believe is faulty. Has there been definite evidence? No. Only a fool would assume 1+1 = 5. That is merely fact.
If you claim you're at 2 - Evidence required, or else fraid not.
WILL they come? Perhaps. Possible. If they do indeed exist, I think it is inevitable if either one of our planets gains sufficient technology, we'd
seek out somewhere that life exists because we'd be too stubborn not to make ourselves known. I do not see this happening in any of OUR lifetimes....
as I said.
So my mind is open to the event, but I'm not taking the evidence presented thus far as PROOF. But you'd know that had you read my previous posts. Oh
and if yes, I am selling a book on why aliens will never come..how many shall I put you down for?
1, so I can give it to you as a present when they dont.
Oh and 1+1 does = 2 - no amount of wishing that they'll appear tomorrow with roses in their teeth wearing a sombrero and with a donkey betwixt their
legs, or tentacles, will change that. Sorry..
