Whether you subscribe or not to the theory that there are aliens based on evidence we have (should you call it evidence that is) the Kepler “planet hunter” telescope has provided evidence that in our solar system alone….. There are 17 billion planets capable of supporting life…. something to think about!
There are of course billions upon billions of solar systems….. Surely the question should not be “are we alone?” but “Why would we be alone?”
Man cannot logically say, with any certainty at all, that we for some reason have been blessed by being the only “Thinking organisms in the whole existence of space” surely?
What kind of ego would allow us to believe that nature as varied as it is here, and we by all means do not know exactly what is here, despite destroying virgin Amazon type forest the size of Britain every year we are still discovering many species of new life on the surface let alone what is in the depths of the oceans, does not exist in such a variety on other worlds?
I love the old Star Trek and as so aptly put “Its life Jim but not as we know it” Why is it that we have to constrain in our egoistical minds, life to such boundaries and expect it to fit?
Yet…. within this very tight framework we have set ourselves we still have 17 billion possibilities in “just” our solar system.
Wonders are many and have no end. We are learning so much and learning how wrong we are about life….
One for the sceptics…. Could you be just as wrong about the life unseen? The life of Spirit, of the ether, that actually makes up 98 percent of the world as we “Know it” so much of it unseen unless you are a sensitive, so much that science (as we frame it) cannot explain and yet we know of the “Dark matter” that sceptic scientists have had to admit too but place – of course, their particular stance on it.
It would not do would it, to admit that you are wrong? The flat earth society (one hopes) died out many years ago and yes we say that “well science has advanced” yet sceptics still cling to that dwindling, crumbling piece of rock they hold on to.
There are many whose reputations will be shot to pieces… They make history at the moment and are enjoying “their time” but they shall be remembered only as those who were like dinosaurs, however unlike dinosaurs who continually are updated and remembered, those sceptics who enjoy notoriety now will be forever consigned to the bin of science.
They shall be hidden, unspoken of and forgotten, an untimely embarrassment that no one speaks about.
In some ways like the scientists like Crooks, those who worked for spirit and were buried, they shall be swapped and those of today forgotten forever in a mountain of ridicule, very Karmic I think!
Light, always, Leo.
