Quotes & Antidotes
"For all we know, earthly life may be the only life there is. I personally judge it to be more likely than not that there is intelligent
life elsewhere in our universe, outside our solar system. I do not exclude the possibility that we are the only intelligent beings; however, if
I adopt that assumption, there is really nothing more to say, whereas the opposite view leads to interesting trains of thought."
--Ronald N. Bracewell. Intelligent Life in Outer Space. W. H. Freeman & Co., 1975, p. 15.
This is where "modern" science has brought us. The ONLY reason anyone would even consider the existence of ET life is because of their faith in the religion of Evodelusion. Just look at what he says.
"I personally judge it to be more likely..." Based on WHAT exactly? Well, as the book makes clear, based on his faith that the universe popped into existence from nothing and stardust somehow turned into people. If it happened here (which it did not) then it can happen anywhere, right?
"There is really nothing more to say..." REALLY? You mean we can't study the universe, Earth and living things on Earth without believing in fictitious green men from other planets?
"...Interesting trains of thought." Translation: Fantasy stories about alien life. Science fiction, in other words. We can IMAGINE whatever worlds and life forms we want, and who's going to say we're wrong? They just MIGHT be out there!
Yes, folks, this is the modern "science" of imagination.
