Why would we believe that if there is life on other planets that it would evolve to something intelligent?

What is intelligent life? When we speak of “intelligent life” we need to define what that entails. For example, bacterial life is not intelligent. But what about a dog? Suppose we found a dog like creature on a planet. It can respond, be happy, be angry, even be loyal. A dog is certainly not a... Continue Reading →

Why is there a stigma around attempting to discover extraterrestrial life?

There is no stigma. All of science is dedicated to discover extraterrestrial life. We would be completely excited to find even a fossil of a microbe from space because it would be the ultimate affirmation that life can evolve from matter on another world other than Earth. Our best hope at present is to find... Continue Reading →

How did life on Earth first get formed?

We don’t know. Some people think we know, but a real scientist will agree with my first sentence. The theory, still unproven, is that life evolves from dead matter. We’re still searching for life on other planets to prove this wet-dream of scientists, but still we have no proof of concept - just a concept... Continue Reading →

Would you say it’s a miracle that earth developed in just the right way in order for us to exist? Or Is it even more miraculous that humans could adapt and become the masters of this planet?

If not miraculous, then pretty darn incredibly fortunate for us. So far, as we study our planet and the places we either visit directly or send our robots to, we haven’t found any other place with life on it. Finding life on another planet would be great. It would prove it wasn’t a “miracle” for... Continue Reading →

Do aliens who live on planets with natural conditions and resources similar to Earth develop technology trees similar to Human’s?

If aliens had something like hands with something like opposable thumbs and intelligence and a few hundred thousand years, then possibly they might develop technology similar to ours. So what is an opposable thumb? According to an article on NSTA News: “Human thumbs are called opposable thumbs. They are called opposable because the thumb can be moved around to touch the other fingers, which... Continue Reading →

Why hasn’t one species “won” evolution? Why hasn’t one super-species outcompeted all competitors?

Humans are the dominant species based on our technology and industry intelligence, opposable and language skills. There are creatures that eat humans, but homo-sapiens as a species won’t be wiped out because of it. Most of us just avoid being in a place where we might get eaten by a shark or a crocodile or...

What will be the next major step in the evolution of the human species?

You know, evolution doesn’t always mean things get better. It used to be if someone couldn’t see clearly they’d die of starvation. Now we have eye-glasses, so the need to have perfect eyes isn’t required by our species anymore. It used to be if someone had no teeth they’d starve. Now we have dentists that... Continue Reading →

Dark Perplexity: Garden of Eden or Big Bang?

So which is it? Adam and Eve or the Big Bang? It's a dark mystery. We all know how an atheist would answer, and we all know how a fundamentalist Christian, Jew or Muslim would answer. Trying to argue either side would therefore be fruitless, like expecting to convince a pro-lifer or pro-choicer to accept... Continue Reading →
