I killed a fly today

    That was the end if it's world. Is it that easy for the cosmos to do the same?

      Kind of cool huh. size is relative. One fly. 1,000 flies. One world a thousand worlds. One galaxy a thousand galaxies. Yikes the fly so tiny to us and us so tiny to the cosmos. Think how many neurons are wiped out by a sneeze.

      The weather is too cold here for flies, but I kill a lot of them in the Summer. They normally go up the spout of my vacuum cleaner. I've got nothing against flies, heaven forbid, but my house is the wrong place for them. They've got their function in the world, as we all have, but  not in my house. So that's where they find their "end of the world". But everthing, you know, everything that died today, experienced an "end of the world". The end of the world for them, that is. And they won't be able to tell the tale. Anyway, I imagine, for the flies, the spout of my vacuum  cleaner is the equivalent of a black hole.

      Or, if we are discovered by beings that are much higher on the food chain than we are, it would be easy to wipe us out.

      Don't worry about the end of the cosmos. We won't be around to see it anyway. We have much more pressing questions that need answers.

    Yes, imagine the solar system entering the gravitational field of a black hole strong enough to cancel the effects of the gravitational fields of other stellar phenomenon. We would all die in a time period proportional to the distance between Sol and the black hole, and acceleration due to gravity.

    The dinosaur killer comes to mind...a little love tap from the cosmos that nearly wiped out all life on earth.

      Dinosaur extinction theories depend on what part of the world your science community come from. Much like Gods, it depends on what part of the world your living in

        How true many gods are all around the world but that doesn't mean a lot of things. It certainly does not mean that a real God doesn't exist. It certainly doesn't mean there is no right way to God. It certainly doesn't mean that God is impossible because there are so many gods.
        The hebrew/jewish God, which originated in the middle east, is known to me in north america i think this ridicules your negative post to the extent that i will defer shooting holes in it further.

    Yes. Every year astronomers spot a super nova or two in some galaxy or other. Now considering that planets orbiting stars is much more the norm than previously thought, and some of those will be in a 'Goldilocks' zone, how often are entire civilisations destroyed by their star somewhere?

      brotheryochananposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      Planets orbiting stars is not as common place as we think. The vast majority of stars are red producing only a small amount of the light spectrum, red. Yellow suns produce a full spectrum of light which benefit greatly a vast array of lifeforms from trees to vitamin D.
      Your Goldilocks zone is rarer than you think. Again the vast majority of orbits are either elliptical or random. Our orbit is circular, presenting safe passage for all planets involved without crashing into each other and predictable seasons.
      how often entire civilizations are destroyed by their stars is complete speculation. Since you mentioned civilizations you must be referring to humans or alien lifeforms and not just micro life forms, the prior has not been found and micro life doesnt have civilizations now does it.
      As to supernova, they are all over the place but not in our particular 'goldilocks zone' for indeed if we examine our situation in space, we are nestled very safely in a unique zone apart from areas where supernova occur. So if you are saying that civilizations exist where supernova occur is something that no one else has proven and partly because in these chaotic areas life does not exist, not even long enough to be considered a civilization.
      in my opinion, a civilization has never been destroyed by their star somewhere.

        Despite the fact scientists are finding planets orbiting stars?



        lol

        Amazing, you really have no idea what you're talking about and are just making stuff up as you go along. Hilarious.

          1. Not circular, elliptical, and eccentric.

          2. Then what?

          3. Can you prove that? What about a Portuguese Man-of War? It is a living community of individual microscopic animals. It is a co-operative colony, not a single organism.

          4. It seems that way, but the jury is still out.

          I have one final evaluation of the information from the station of your determination, "Amazing, you really have no idea what you're talking about and are just making stuff up as you go along. Hilarious."

          You said that?  cool  That is amazing.

                God
                Do you think flies can be saved? Salvation is the opening to God.
                Castlepaloma 3:16.. For God so loved the world he gave is only son, that every fly bug and animal should be saved.
                and there's so much more on this topic .... God is worried about the state of man, not animals. Animals are for food as stated very early in genesis.

                  I'll tell that to my best friend, my dog

                  No wonder we are killing 3 species a day on earth and turning the Planet into a big burning ball of crap on fire.
