the801: isn't it obvious that there's life on other planets? i mean, there's just about 2^amillion of them out there, give or take. and life doesn't always have to look like us, and be all carbon based oxygen consuming monkeys. there's decent odds that there is or has been some sort of life (maybe not sentient and all) in our solar system, not counting our planet. send a huge crew of scientists to europa and see what's been going on there in the last hundreds of millions of years.but yeah, hundreds of millions of stars in our galaxy, hundreds of millions of galaxies out there and ours is medium-sized, plus all of the mysterious stuff that we don't understand about the universe... kinda silly to believe that ours is the only planet that developed 'life'./ don't worry, christians, jesus appeared on every one of those life-bearing planets to give them the Good News. all 100 billion of them.
indarwinsshadow: There's little evidence there is or would be a bipedal tool using species anywhere. Think of the number of creatures just on this planet that are truly bipedal and are tool users. There's just one. We and our direct ancestors are it. There isn't any others. And that's in 4.5 billion years of the planets complex existence. I don't discount life. I'm a 100% positive there's both life and complex life in the universe. Just nothing like us.
Sasquach: Every time I hear the "space is just so vast, we'll never visit anywhere" argument, something in me just screams "NO!".
AdolfOliverPanties: If Einstein is correct, we are farked. We simply do not have the energy needed to travel at anything approaching light speed and the absolute nearest star system to us would take us four years to get there traveling at light speed. I too am disappointed in this, but it is fact at this point.
The Snow Dog: I think you are wrong. You think I'm wrong. Can either of us prove we're right? No.Stalemate.
The Snow Dog: Is a per-hensile like a henway?
