What are humanity’s chances of making it beyond our universe?

I suspect your question is beyond our solar system, but it could also mean beyond our Milky Way Galaxy… however, when you ask “beyond our universe,” it’s a whole different story. So let’s take it one by one. Beyond our universe.  Not very likely unless you believe in multiverses and reincarnation.Beyond our galaxy  Also not... Continue Reading →

Has science and the scientific method eliminated the possibility of any God as the master designer of our collective existence?

Some would say yes was the correct answer to this question. I would say science still leaves plenty of room for mystery. Perhaps God and the spiritual plane exist outside the material universe as we know it. Perhaps the multiverse theory entertained by astrophysicists could include a God beyond the realm of our one universe. In Hinduism and offshoots of Hinduism, for... Continue Reading →

The development of life isn’t as dependent on the length of a day as you might think. In fact, we have life on Earth where there is no light at all, such as at the bottom of the ocean and inside lakes in caves and so on. More important is the presence of liquid water,... Continue Reading →

Do you believe aliens regularly visit earth and kidnap people?

No. I don’t believe it is possible to travel from star to star without spending thousands and thousands of years to do so. Space is pretty vast, and that speed of light speed limit applies everywhere.
