    And since humans know all there is to know about the universe and we can't travel that far it is impossible for any other planet to have a creature smart enough to do it...

    Right????

    No way.
    We should never be so arrogant as to proclaim such a thing.

    I just think physics is an absolute limit.
    Were interstellar travel possible within the constraint of said physics, something or someone would have visited us.
    We have not a hint that that has ever happened.

    Just arrived home from Austin after giving an address to a large group of women executives on human reproductive evolutionary physiology.

    What really humbles me....
    And I readily recognize that this causes some existential consternation.....accepted.......



    Simply amazing that you and I have a common ancestor with porcupines, pineapples, protozoa and all poultry!!!

    Life IS amazing.
    And indeed, we may be utterly unique in our universe. Oh, how I wish I could know.

    Anybody else going to the Hal Ketchum benefit at Gruene Hall Sunday????

    Really???
    They find out all the time that the "truth" they absolutely know about physics is, ,,WRONG.
    They have been finding that their "truth" and "limits" are wrong for centuries. IIRC, that was one of Einstein's thoughts were. That physics is infinite. That what even him and others knew was but a tiny bit of it. Given what man has learned since, it was. That what we know now still is, compared to what is there to learn. Not to mention what we think we know that may be all wrong.
    Ok, go ahead, depend on what is already known. If humans had done that from the beginning, we would still be living in trees.

    Read some of the books by Hugh Ross. You'll see that all the important parameters for life like ours to exist are finely tuned. The size of the universe doesn't increase the likelihood of life elsewhere. Sure, there may be something like mold or algae, but not intelligent life. A mathematical impossibility, backed by unbiased agnostic science.

    So it's a mathematical impossibility that it has happened AGAIN?

    That doesn't even make sense and I don't buy it.

    I firmly believe we have already been visited multiple times.

    Where are we going to be in a few hundred or more years with our technology? Now imagine another intelligent species being at the point we are at ten thousand or more years ago.

    All it is going to take is one moment or event to change everything that we know is true.

    You must be forgetting we only have 12 years left, the scientific minds of Ocrazy-o and the Bern keep reminding us!

    Math lies.
    And I can prove it.
    There is one, and only one, absolute in life.
    You are not getting out of it alive. Everything else is relative.

    Wait! Are you saying Trump won't be president in the year 5000?
