re: About those Russian flags emblazoned with TRUMP - MississippiLSUfan
[quote]This wasn't some troll by the dnc[/quote] You know that this isn't true. This was a troll by both the DNC and the liberal press who both collaborated and coordinated this silly flag shite. Not only do you know it, but the rest of the thinking people in the world do, too. :usa:...

re: NASA: new solar system , Trappist-1 ,where life may have evolved on 3 planets - MississippiLSUfan
[quote]I don't get why it's a good or complete theory. Granted I'm not a mathematician but seems that the interstellar travel being an absolute impossibility and there being millions of intelligent civilizations out there that are all stuck in their own solar system is just as likely, if not more.[/...

[quote]Plenty of alternate hypothesis to the filter: maybe it is too expensive to spread physically throughout the galaxy, maybe Earth is purposely isolated, maybe it is dangerous to communicate and hence civilizations actively hide, etc etc. All of which the fermi author concedes as plausible.[/quo...

[quote]For all intents and purposes, given the number of planets in the known universe, it's impossible for Earth to be the only source of life.[/quote] I agree. But that doesn't mean intelligent life. I think that Fermi is probably right as I said above. But the question remains of our place ...

According to Fermi and the great filter, we would be doomed. But he strikes me as a pessimist. Read the article that I linked. It really is thoughtful on this subject. The best outcome would be the first postulate. But in all of that vastness I'm pretty skeptical. Fermi is probably right...a...

Exactly. The absolute worst thing that could happen to mankind is If NASA was to somehow find an ancient civilization on Mars. At that point, we would know that we are doomed as a species....

re: NASA: new solar system , Trappist-1 ,where life may have evolved on 3 planets - MississippiLSUfan
Good point. But the real gist of the extrapolation of Fermi is the great filter and figuring out where we are in that continuum. Here is an excellent [link=(http://waitbutwhy.com/2014/05/fermi-paradox.html)]Article[/link] on that very subject. I would encourage anyone who has a little time on...

I believe that it is the utmost of arrogance and inflated self importance to be of the opinion that we are somehow unique. The next time that you are on a beach reach down past your cold beer and pick up a handful of sand. And really look at what is in your hand. Then imagine all of the grains ...

[quote]To be fair, they're all well outside of the Goldilocks zone, so we would know not to look there.[/quote] Actually, I think that at least one of Jupiter's moons would be an excellent place to look for life. Imagine an ocean world with a miles thick ice crust that is heated by gravitational...
