Why WOULDN'T they look vaguely similar?
What do you know about life on other planets?
I will share with you some of what I know...
Mars once had water and may have been able to support life.
Meteors hitting a planet can eject material, including microbial life, out into space. This material can land on other planets and moons.
Life on two different planets that began from the same genetic pathway, might just be vaguely similar...
Is that really "rediculous"?
The real problem here is that nobody knows the answer, so those who are the most wrong are those who ridicule the opposing side the most and those who
are the most insistent that they are right. As for me, I'm saying its a possibility. You cannot really punch holes in an argument like that...
Your ilk on the other hand... You are behaving as if you exist in a reality where you have been to mars or otherwise confirmed the truth or fallacy of
Arken's proposal... Let me be the first to tell you that I do not believe you if you are saying you have been to Mars or otherwise confirmed the
truth or fallacy behind Arken's proposals. And if you believe you have, well, then all of you need to seek some kind of help. Maybe a counselor, or a
priest could help. I'm also a pretty good listener, if you'd like to discuss these adventures of yours. I would love to hear all about your travels
to mars or any other place that you believe you've been.
I mean, seriously bud... The way some of you guys get all worked up about this stuff and pretending as if you have knowledge that is impossible for
anyone to have...maybe you got some stuff you need to get off your chest. I'm here for you... I know life is stressful sometimes. You got bills to
pay... The world's going to Hell... Random people on the internet are having discussions about life on mars... I know...it gets to be too much
sometimes. And that's when your mind starts to slip... Just a little at first. But before long, just knowing that there are people having these crazy
discussions as if there's nothing wrong with it, as if they're not hurting anybody...well, eventually you just snap and your mind gives you these
false memories that you've been on all these missions, to mars and all kinds of places...and then you go on the internet and make a total clown out
of yourself by making wild proclamations as if you've personally journeyed across the universe, when all the other people are saying is "hey, look
at that. looks kinda like a fossil. that would be cool. sure looks like one. maybe one day we will find out for sure..." I get it, bro. That kind of
open-minded discussion just infuriates the heck outta people like you. It's ok though. We can talk it out... Just close your eyes and imagine a giant
poster of Hitler. Just imagine that Hitler won the war and free thinking isnt allowed anymore. That's your utopia right? Your happy place? That's
right...go to your happy place. Just picture the stacks of bodies of people who dared to say "what if?" You can almost smell the burning flesh.
Refreshing, isnt it? Hey look, I think that's Arken and his buddies over there. I guess they finally got what was coming to them after they dared to
wonder about fossils on mars. Yeah, that makes you real happy, doesn't it? You've got a big smile on your face just thinking of all your enemies
burning, Hitler in charge, yep everything is the way it should be, isnt it? No people on ats speaking their minds freely... In fact there's no ats at
all. There's only one website and it contains all the information the people need to know. And it clearly...CLEARLY stated... that there is no life
on mars, and if there ever was, it was just microbes. Why can't people just...LISTEN AND OBEY WHAT THEY ARE TOLD BY THE GOVERNMENT??? Life would be
so much simpler then... Oh well, maybe someday people will realize that you are right and believe that you've been to mars. Until then, you just
gotta keep on fighting the good fight. Good luck man. Go get em.
Our first session is over. Please pm me if you'd like to go further into your mind to root out these issues before they become serious. You must be
well versed in sarcasm or else it won't work. For example, that stuff about Hitler was just me attacking your character by assuming you'd be happy
in a world like that, but of course I don't really think that. I was just over exaggerating my opinion of your ideals as you have expressed them. In
other words, your a horrible person, but not THAT horrible. You can be fixed with a proper regiment of my brand of no nonsense, tough love with
emphasis on the love. But first, you see, we must break down your ego. You can't just walk around acting as if you know everything, ok? All of
humanity's knowledge combined is not even enough to register a measurement if there were any such device to detect such a thing. And you are only 1
HUMAN. Get it?
