Thanks for your thread, always an interesting topic to discuss. I just posted in another thread regarding the possibility of life elsewhere in the
It's possible! The universe is approximately 13.7 billion years old. The earth is approximately 4.6 billion years old. We really don't know, but
there are approximately billions of other planets in countless solar systems. We just don't know.
With that said, we have absolutely no tangible, physical proof that life exists anywhere else! It would seem incredible that life of some form does
not exist somewhere in the universe?
Unfortunately, I doubt during our generation, just like the thousands before us, that we will ever find life elsewhere! Intelligent or otherwise.
It's possible, you would think so, makes sense, hope we are not alone Since man has walked on earth, we have had the uncontrollable urge to look
toward the stars, looking, searching, speculating. The facts remain, we have found no sign of the existence of life beyond the earth to date.
And as much as we may wish to believe that we have been contacted already, as far as I know, we have absolutely no tangible, physical proof of such
contact. I know, I know, I know.....Ancient Aliens and all of the others......very interesting, provocative, but just questions and speculation,
I'm sure I will be beaten to death over my observations, but if you're honest, and live in reality, we just don't know and in 'our' lifetime, we
will probably never know.
Now, how about us? As the human species. I've held long term beliefs that we were created by a Higher Power, an Almighty God. However, now, after
reading and trying to understand the many theories of our existence, I come back to my original conclusion. The magnificence, the absolute wonder of
earth, and the millions of organic species here today, and before, makes me believe or have faith that some Unknown, Greater Power, God if you will,
had a hand in All of its' creation!! I think that is reasonable, and we are all entitled to our beliefs, which no one has absolute proof in proving
that theirs is in fact the truth!!
Anyway, Merry Christmas and a Healthy, Happy New Year!!!
Peace my friends. Merry Christmas
