re: Extraterrestrials are discovered, how do you think the world reacts


Anyone who suggest the simplest form of life doesn't exist in any multiverse is a fool.

In our backyard will ruffle a few feathers, but will refund our space program, which I am all for if we're gonna blow taxpayer money anyways.

Maybe. It's incredibly possible. I don't have the answers and anyone who claims to is a fool.

I don't think it would change the everyday life of the vast majority of the world. Remember, a large portion of the worlds populations biggest worry is surviving and eating from day to day. They don't have all the free time We have to even worry about such things.

about the same as us discovering dirt on Mars. We don't care about what's going on in other continents, who cares about a different planet?

it wouldn't change anything. both sides would use this knowledge to try to get the population even more divided and more filled with hate. same thing with other countries.

I bet you're wrong. I can just about guarantee the hardcore Christians and Muslims will flip their shite with such news.

I'm not sure, but I remember them being extremely opposed to us even discussing UFOs, aliens, anything at all like that when we were in school and telling us there absolutely wasn't any life on other planets. This was a private Christian school where they told us that humans and dinosaurs absolutely lived together, so not exactly mainstream, but...

I'm a hard core Christian that believes in the Genesis account of creation and I wouldn't flip.

I'm pretty sure that Christians and Muslims have a much bigger picture of God and Allah than you do. In their minds, he isn't limited by the confines of Earth. He created it all. In reality, it will be used to further demonstrate God, and/or Allah's, greatness and supremacy.

and your private school of 500+ represents the hundreds of millions of Christians throughout history, huh?

I wish you were right. Our curriculum came from two companies: A Beka and Bob Jones University.

Feel free to do the research on them.

there's no doubt that at least a few dozen people on Earth believe this. I've even heard of a "Christian" museum displaying such. that doesn't mean it is representative of Christianity as a whole. Apparently, this person has never left the confines of his county in Arkansas.

Well when we discovered dirt on the other side of the ocean when multiple people sailed there, I think it made a pretty damn big difference. I can assure you that any remotely educated person would certainly care that there is life there. You'd have to be a white trash idiot not to think so.

I've heard of much more ludicrous things from religion.

I really hope you stay as far away from power as possible, since you only see things in black and white. What this could be used for is uniting the country, not dividing it. Finding life on Mars would send so much energy to our space program that it would be incredible. Instead of bombing the frick out of brown people, why don't we invest it in something that will help out mankind?
