I just have to say. I believe 100% in Alien life.
I'm just sick of people mucking up the subject
I agree. Lately I've been thinking about why it's so hard for so many people to believe that life exists somewhere other than this tiny planet in a
universe so enormous that our minds are incapable of comprehending it. From what I can figure, it's a 2-part answer: Religion and Government
1.) Religion (at least Western religions) has taught that we are "special" in the eyes of an omnipotent being and that the universe was created just
for us. If there's life elsewhere, then we're not so special after all, and that point alone if accepted as fact, would force us to question the
validity of religion. That prospect scares the daylights out of a lot
of people because they think that no religion means no God, and no
afterlife. If there's no afterlife, there's no meaning to life, and that's a prospect that they refuse to accept.
2.) Governments know that there have always been objects in the sky that are clearly mechanical. Clearly to those who have actually seen some of them
them close-up anyway, and make our best technology look like Tonka toys, and there's absolutely nothing they can do to defend against them. That makes
governments impotent, and that scares them. It would also scare us if they would actually come out and state it as fact.
In other words, fear is the motivating factor for those people.
Of course some here will argue that they base their claims on the lack of scientific evidence, when in fact what their basing it on is the lack of
evidence. There is more than enough intangible evidence, when viewed with common sense, to reasonably conclude that the probability of
life on other planets is staggeringly high.
