    Madest mate, I think this is where you and me lock horns. There are only two users who I can tell posted what, 5Cats and you. That`s all. Cats at least got the message, and stopped submitting utter bullwank.

    You in turn said "Who said anything about aliens?". Well, the loaded title might have been a clue.

    Dude, if this video is enough to convince you of aliens, then good luck to ya. I guess we`re just on different wavelengths.

    Anyways, enough of the public spat between Mods. Let`s take it offline.

    Oh, Crakrjak. Don`t get me wrong here. I appreciate the vote of confidence, but I think you and Madest are both equally f*cked up in the head. On one hand, he believes in UFO`s, you on the other hand believe in the Holy Rapture (Christian, that is).

    To me, it`s equally insane.

    Davy:: If we were to use popularity of belief as a scale for who`s crazy and who`s sane, then the belief in the Holy Rapture wins the sanity comparison hands down, at least in America.

    Stating that 75% of American adults are insane, according to you, which is the percentage of people that ID themselves as Christian, would be extremely narrow minded.

    "On one hand, he believes in UFO`s"

    Given the size of the knows and unknown universe, it is a mathematical impossibility that we are alone in this universe. Thus, it is without a doubt possible that we have extra terrestrial visitors. It is even possible we have them coming from more than one place. Though I doubt this... I am pretty sure we are just a science experiment of some alien race.

    @TKD_Master

    They`re not ignorant. They put a logical spin on what they know and make their own conclusions. Ignorance is more like making a blanket statement about 1 billion plus people and declaring your superiority over them, based on your ignorant conclusions. Ignorant, because an intelligent person wouldn`t call all Christians ignorant. Their are better adjectives out there. You could argue they are misguided, wrong, incorrect, "insert adjective that says they are wrong and you are right here"; but to say they are ignorant actually implies the same of you.

    @CrakrJak i dont know where you get your statistics, but only 60% of americans are christians, and only 45% of them take the bible literally. and you dont even know how many of them are children, who are not even properly educated due to indoctrination. or how many from their percentile that are just labeled christian because their parents are but have no idea whats even in the bible.

    @TKD_Master "it is a mathematical impossibility that we are alone in this universe."

    While it`s not an impossibility, it is an improbability that we`re alone. Scientists have discovered through gas spectrum analysis from the remains of supernova that complex organic chemicals are created in space. These chemicals include the hydrocarbons we label Amino Acids, the building blocks of proteins hence life. These amino acids have also been found embedded in the remains of meteorites, proving that they do form elsewhere other than our planet. While the conditions for complex life development are rather specific, a planet has to be in whats known as the goldilocks zone i.e. not too hot nor too cold this zone is variable and dependant on the stars mass, temperature etc. They also, as we see it at the moment have to show the presence of liquid water. There are several known local stars with planets in that appear to be in the golidlocks zone, life may or may not be closer tha

    cont... than we think, it is all dependant on the timeline of life. If we take our planet into consideration, if not for some unknown event that wiped the dinosaurs from our planet we as mammals may not have developed into the dominant species. This is all with regards to our local neighbourhood in the galaxy of course, when we take into account the billions of galaxies out there each with billions of stars each, with potential for hundreds of billions of solar systems per galaxy the chances for at least 1 planet per galaxy to be sitting in the goldilocks zone long enough for life to develop. Mathematically it`s improbably that we`re alone, however the intelligence of that developed life is highly debatable. With regards to visitors, while we currently do not as physicists understand the full properties of light. I do not doubt that eventually there will be a breakthrough that allows faster than light travel, making interstellar travel a viable possibility.

    The footage is from a webcam mounted outside the CFHT astronomical observatory in Hawaii on Mauna Kea.

    Sorry to disappoint, but it`s an atmospheric flare from a ICBM test out of Vandenberg AFB in California.

    Revolutioniz: I got my 75% of American `Adults` statistic from religioustolerance.org , which is hardly a pro-Christian website at all.

    Note the `Adults` part, there are millions of Christian children NOT included in that statistic and I`m sure many of them are intelligent enough to have made up their own minds. I don`t know where you got your 60% and 45% made up numbers, but being a Christians means that you do believe in Christ`s eventual return to earth, that is a rather universal part of Christian theology.

    TDK Master: it is a mathematical impossibility that we are alone in this universe.

    That depends on the math. The standard Drake equation parameters are not all of the likely probabilities that need to be factored in, and the estimates of those probabilities are based on conjecture.

    The problem, of course, is that none of the terms can be known, and most cannot even be estimated. The only way to work the equation is to fill in with guesses... Speaking precisely, the Drake equation is literally meaningless - Michael Crichton

    "Given the size of the knows and unknown universe, it is a mathematical impossibility that we are alone in this universe."

    We live in a finite universe in an infinite container. There are a finite number of stars, and therefore a finite number of planets orbiting said stars. The math is simple. It is exceedingly unlikely that we are alone in the universe. I would argue it`s exceedingly unlikely we are alone in the galaxy. However, the odds are NOT 0.

    Another thing to consider is the timing. The universe is 13.75 billion years old (+/- .11 billion years). Humans have been around for 50,000 years. That means we`ve been around for about 0.037% of the existence of the universe. Even if there were other civilizations out there, there are good odds they won`t overlap.

    I personally think that we`re not alone, that life is everywhere. But the numbers don`t guarantee it as you suggest.

    Revolutioniz: Yes I do, There are many children right now with great goals in mind for their future and are studying hard and saving their own money to go to college or university to reach those goals.

    Conversely there are some twenty-somthings, and some thirty year olds, that still act like teenagers and have never grown up.

    But the statistic, I used, was representative of `Adults`, that still means your original remark about children was off the mark.

    So it sounds like there`s more people who believe in the existence of life on other planets than believe in God.

    One thing`s for sure, the reason we`ve not been asked to join in the galaxy`s social circle is because as a race, humans are nasty, unwashed, uneducated trailer trash that nobody wants to associate with.

Sometime the posts that seem the most useless are bthe post that receive most attention. Take 5cats for example, he usualy post lot of blatant things all against liberals and so on but in most of cases they are discussed a lot. I think you have done right on sayng to him to calm down but as you can see the result is that 5cats is disappeared. Davy remember "in medio stat virtus". Peace.

We are allways searching rationals explanations as humans, but i like to think that there is something bigger than our rationality out there. Call me a dreamer or put the label you want on me but i think that beliving in something different or bigger than our rationality give more color to our life.

    That`s far from sure. Even if there are other people elsewhere now, they wouldn`t necessarily even know about each other and/or us. There`s plenty of space in the galaxy for dozens of civilisations, even multi-planet civilisations with interstellar travel, to exist and be unaware of each other. Finding us would be highly unlikely.

    They would have to have technology vastly in advance of our own, so even if they do exist and have found us they might consider it wise to not interact because doing so could ruin us. All our education, all our technology, all our research...all instantly rendered irrelevant. Almost everyone unemployed within days.
