Just wanted to rant somewhat on my thoughts.
Where are we? Well, I don't know where you are, as I can only talk for myself. Everyday my feelings change. I think my whole life is a mishmash of
religious confusion, the desire to be someone, or something bigger, and the understanding that maybe this is it, or maybe, there is life out there,
and if there is, where does that land me.
Where am I going with this? Not sure, just posting my thoughts on where I think I stand with the alien idea. I have been religiously confused; Jewish
convert, Roman Catholic, Buddhist, started down the road of Hinduism and thats where I stopped, and this played a large role on my thoughts and
opinions on alien life.
I came to the conclusion IF there is aliens, then there can't be a God. So then came the question what is more probable; other life in the universe
or that God created all this. Well isn't arrogant and ignorant to believe in a universe still expanding that we are the only life that was able to
form. So my conclusion was simple, there has to be life, and therefore there can't be a God. Now I am sure i will be flamed for this, but I have
always had an overbearing feeling of importance, that I was suppose to be someone, and now mid 30's I finally came to the conclusion that just isn't
so, I'm not going to be anyone of importance, and will never be remembered for anything. So the question arose again. Out of God and aliens what
would give me, or the human race more of a meaning or purpose, and a role to play. If God, then we are somebody, we are children of a higher power,
regardless of what God it is. If aliens, we are simply a species which accidentally formed on this planet, which happened elsewhere in the universe;
if aliens we are not unique, and therefore really aren't so special, aren't we?
I ultimately believe there are aliens, and I do not look for evidence, or proof, as I think the simple size of the universe is evidence enough that
the probability of life only happening on this planet is so small its unbelievable. So where does that put us, or me.
Isn't believing in aliens admitting we really are not unique, special, and have real no contribution to play other than living and passing away?
As a complete side thought, do you have any thoughts on weather alien life would be religious, and/or do you think they have power over death?
anyhow, just something I wanted to write.
It's nice to meet you all.
