Nah, who'll flip the bigmacs and scrub the toilets on earth 2.0? there's still hope!

The only way we will get of this planet, is to work as a
race together, and not as countries. It annoys the hell
out of me how backward we are!
Imagine all the money in the world we spend on killing
eachother, being spent on space travel technologies. Where
would we be now, or where will we be in say 30 years time if
all that money was spent in space exploration technologies?
Guess i was born too early with the kind of mind and thinking
i have. I dont think in my life time you will see us working together,
as a race

Really blows ones' mind when you sit back and contemplate it doesn't it? It's mathematically IMPOSSIBLE that we are alone. Hundreds of trillions of billions of galaxies, stars, planets, and moons out there. When you start to realize that, it makes you kind of feel not so special anymore.edit on 30-9-2012 by TheLonewolf because: forgot a word
That is exactly what I've been saying. We're a spec in the background of the cosmos. But we're so arrogant as a species that we make up a story about a super duper sky ghost that made us especially for him, and then he made everything just as it is today and all in 7 days, by which time he said "Crikey I'm buggered" and had a little lie down.
To these folk it is inconceivable that we're just not that special in the grand scheme of things.

How the hell do they know if these planets are possibly habitable or not? This stinks to me. If our technology is at the level were told it is, i dont get how they can say "ah, it might be habitable!". Even if you know the precise orbits of them, which i dont see happening without waaay too much error......you know, our moons in the habitable zone too. These could be worlds like ours, or, basically big rocks like our moon but bigger.
