TGIF



Well I don't know if anyone out there believes in UFO's but I do. Yeah, I know it's crazy to think there could be any intelligent life forms outside of the Human Race. I mean, really...... The picture below was taken by Voyager 1 almost 4 billion miles from Earth and from there it looks pretty small..In fact the picture was dubbed "The Pale Blue Dot"



Carl Sagan, reflecting on this image said: " Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity -- in all this vastness -- there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. It is up to us. It's been said that astronomy is a humbling, and I might add, a character-building experience. To my mind, there is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known. "

Well, he certainly had no faith that aliens from another planet were ready to help! I think it's a job we have to take on..and pretty soon.

There are those, including a former President of the USA, that think that Aliens have visited our little blue oasis in the universe...



How are we ever going to save ourselves from ourselves?

I just stumbled upon your blog via BlogMad and ended up sticking around a while to watch this. I'm also a bit of a believer and find videos like these interesting. It's really silly to think Earth is the only planet with intelligent life considering there are so many other galaxies besides our own. There's got to be other intelligent life out there somewhere :)

To Mike: Let's hope so. Earth seems to have more than its share of unintelligent life!

I want to beleive, I really do, but unless I personally get abducted and return to tell the story, I cant really say anything about other life forms. I need solid proof:P

Geez I hope that Earth isn't the only planet in the universe with intelligent life - and that term is used loosely!
As Seinfeld once said, if Aliens landed whilst we were walking our dogs, picking up their 'nuggets', who would they assumed ruled the planet??

I find these sorts of things very interesting. Whilst I wouldn't say I was an avid believer in intelligent life, I find nothing to disprove the various theories that float around.. And, as I like to think of myself as a logical thinker, it would be illogical to immediately rule out the possibilities of other life (if we're here, perhaps others are?) without more evidence on the subject (which there isn't any). So until then, I am merely waiting for life to be discovered or completely ruled out. All I'm hoping is that it's in my lifetime.

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I do actually listen to the Genome Music Project! :) It's recently been made available for us here in the UK. I found it was amazing - I typed in my favourite band, Lamb of God, and then was able to find loads of bands I probably never would have found if not for the project. Awesome idea. :)

Razz, some of those "Starlets" you write about are probably from another planet!! LOL

Toes--I know who you ARE!!

Milly-Moo--always a pleasure (-:

I try not to rule out anything when it comes to UFOs, the paranormal, and other things thus far unexplained. I still don't understand fully buoyancy and aerodynamics, so space is just too large an area to consume mentally. We're accustomed to life in a world where things are tangible, and have beginnings and endings. I don't think it's possible to answer the larger questions with our little brains.
