    Instead of spending billions on science Obama was too busy putting the money in barrels and shipping it off to the Iranians.

    Instead of using NASA for real space research Obama was too busy having them produce fake data to support the silly AGW scam.

    Did you apply logic to your assertion?

    If 1 planet of trillions has life, it's not "over, and life is everywhere in the Universe...."

    But if 2 planets of trillions have life, then it IS "over, and life is everywhere in the Universe?"

    Why do folks with the reasoning skills of a doorknob come onto debate sites, anyhow?

    Not all of us are as smart as you, GT.

    I'm so sorry. Please take mercy. Thank you.

    It's my pet peeve, inefficiency. You waste so much discussion time asserting meaningless minutia based on...poor reasoning skills. They should require critical thinking in grade school, imo

    It doesn't even take smarts, it's basic shit.

    Well, I'll certainly endeavor to be more efficient in the future to live up to your high standards.

    Thank you so much for the guidance, and for the ongoing example of efficiency you set for all of us, nary a wasted word or post.

    It's much appreciated. You're at least not as egregious in your terrible cognition as folks like politicalchic, who post 6, 465 links from propaganda sites per post.

    In terms of what I think about life in the Universe, the odds could be construed in 2 different ways...

    1 planet of 9 in our solar system has life, so a 1 per 9 chance, with the caveat that we're not 100% certain the other 9 don't have any.

    & the odds that we're the ONLY life in the Universe, in terms of overall planets of possibility, is 1 in trillions.

    Nobody making a career of gambling would bet that Earth is the only harbor-er of life in this Universe, it's statistically unsound.

    Life evolved here based on what was available--water and oxygen/carbon dioxide, whatever else. In other solar systems "life" may be entirely different, like all the great Star Trek aliens. Probably a lot of them, being somewhat humanoid, are even too much like us. We humans are so egocentric. It cracks me up.
