The news, of late, has stories of spending millions of dollars on the search for extra-terrestrial life. Are aliens even possible? One question was asked not too long ago and was answered with its own uniqueness. Maybe all of the aliens are dead! It was a good article and I am sorry that I did not save it for referral here. Let’s take another look at what the possibilities are.

Forming a viable planet to live on is hard. This was the basis of the “they are all dead” theory. With the universe being so huge, it is inconceivable that we are the only planet with intelligent life. We cannot be the only planet in the entire universe that formed a viable planet. Some objections are that our galaxy is somewhat smaller than the universe and maybe we are the only planet in this galaxy viable enough to sustain life. Contact outside of our galaxy takes too long for a reply to our beacons.

There are other possibilities though. Any planet in our universe might be in the same place, developmentally speaking, as their time lines might be closer to that of earths evolution. They could either, be advance to us, or not at the same advancement as we are. If they are less intelligent than we are, then we will make no contact. If they are more advance in intelligence, then they, with certainty, would not want to make contact. This later point deserves to be explored.

Why would any intelligent being want to come to a planet, or contact one, in which would surely end in a war with them? We can barely survive our own destruction. I can see it now. They come here and every religion instantly wants to “save” them from eternal damnation. As if a God did not exist on their own planet and who already saved them. What if they wanted to “save” us form eternal damnation? That is one “world” war I want to stay away from. A catholic bishop has already volunteered to baptize them in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Christ Jesus, should they come here. If you believe the reports.

Our seeming inability to overcome deep prejudice of other peoples and religions are also a hindrance. How long before we become prejudice to those of other worlds?

They would be past the waste fossil fuel—rape the planet—stage, and surely look upon us as the savages we truly are, by comparison. If we were honest with ourselves, we would admit that us visiting an inferior planet would only be for their resources, covered in the mask of helping to prosper them as a world and saving them. Just by our own greed we might be smitten of their affections.

Why would life evolve anywhere in this universe that was different at some level? Different planet, different intelligence? Not likely! The theory of natural selection does not equate to different possible intelligence paths. You either come to know nature or you do not! That is the definition of intelligence. If life arises it is sure to become of high intelligence, given enough time.

There might be life out there, but we might need to overcome this world before ever hoping to make contact. I believe the universe is replete with life. We just need to learn how to live on the planet we evolved on, becoming humane, then strive to make contact with other worlds!

Should we use our monies to irradiate greed and prejudice through better education on gender differences, religious differences, racial differences, and the like—of which there are no true differences and make earth “the” place to visit?
