Thread: Space Invasion!

    Default Space Invasion!

    I've been pointed to this fascinating display of weather phenomena - http://uk.news.yahoo.com/4/20110202/...m-15af341.html and it made me wonder.

    Do you think there's extraterrestrial life, and is it watching us drudge through the impenetrable secession of days with a bemused interest of a dorky third grader beholding the mounting success of her very own ant farm? Is the truth out there? Do I want to believe? Will they come in peace, or is it going to be Mars Attacks! all over again?

    Other life? Depends on how life is defined perhaps. Other organisms, maybe, but intelligent life, I don't expect so.

    In the vast place that is space. I would bet money there are other intelligent life. Proving that there is or finding them/it. Doubt it.

    I just have a hard time wrapping my mind around the possibilities of perfect placement of another galaxy in a galaxy supercluster, perfect placement of a solar system in given galaxy, perfect positioning of a planet in the given system (to be in a habitable zone), and all this to be stable for long enough to allow chance to produce life in a manner that has never been observed.

    This old lyric summarizes my feelings on the matter I suppose:

    Possibility cannot
    Account for actuality
    Whatever can come to be
    Is caused in order to be

    Nothing cannot be something
    I am but can not be
    My existence depends on
    What is but cannot not be

    Every effect has a cause

    I'd like to add as well, if there is life in a bigger sense out there, that's very cool, and I don't discount it - the universe is larger than what my mind can conceive, and it would be very arrogant of me to assume total knowledge of the universe (in case that's how I came off). Certainly not my line of thinking - all I'm saying is that the current understanding of our genesis leaves much to be explained, and I have trouble understanding it. I think that's why some have suggested ideas about our beginnings to such theories as exogenesis - or Crick/Orgel's directed panspermia - which I see as really wild and out there. There's no sense setting up strawmen though, that's not what I intend to do either.

    If there is proof of extraterrestrial life, I'd suggest we'd start by studying pitty. ?

    Soren, I'd have to give you ten points for pulling that quote out of absolute obscurity, but at the same time you ought to be docked a hard ten points for insinuating that I should be probed and possibly subjected to vivisection.
