You know, I’ll probably be let down by this (as always), but it’s still neat.  Life somewhere other than Earth would be awesome.  Even it is just methane farting bacteria.

Yeah, that’s pretty cool, even if it’s farfetched.

Do you remember when the pope had a huge meeting to decide what their dogma has to say about extraterrestrial life? After much debate, and discussion, they decided that aliens did not have original sin! tongue laugh

They didn’t get into that, but it seemed important to them at the the time, I found it inane. They don’t know anything of the evolution of history of any other planet, so how do they know there wasn’t a garden of oafjfdof, where they ate adfjl from the forbidden ajlffallfl tree? tongue wink

Damned aliens.  They have to mimic everything we do.  They don’t have original sin, just copied sin.  smile

Nothing I can think of would please me more than to learn of life on other planets.  If anything it is the Christians on this poor earth planet who will deny that life was given to earth by God and that is the end of the debate.  Interestingly the State of South Carolina just lost their desire to ban evolution in the public schools.  Of course this Christian state has a long history of adultery within their government.  Maybe some evolution from the graduates might clear the government of corruption. 

I was hoping life could be found on Jupiter so I could introduce a Rabbi as the the Jew from Jewpiter.  It won’t happen…..........  I would imagine the Pope has directed his Cardinals to rewrite the New Testament again to include space aliens.  Won’t they be surprised when they have their first Papal visit?

Same with me.  This universe is just so vast, it’s improbable (though not impossible) that Earth is the only inhabited world.  I for one want to see an expedition to Europa.

The Science Channel is filled with many programs on life in the universe.  Europa sounds likely for life.  I watch these shows and even repeats because there was little science in our schools in the late 30s and 40s based on the universe.  I would think the younger school kids would be lining up to learn more.

I loved stuff about the universe when I was a kid.  And still do.  But I was an odd child.  And am an odder adult.
