          okedokee. and i expect there is some sort of life out there. it might be microbes or it might be humanoids or it might be some creature we haven't even created with our imaginations yet. the Universe is just too vast for there not to be. i bet there is some creature on some distant world typing at his computer going "do you believe in extragalaxians" at this very moment wink

      I'm sure of it.
      In fact, they may so evolved that they don't need a planet to survive on.
      Just "space" to live within.
      Somewhere in limitless, eternal space, life may have evolved far beyond the wildest kinds we could imagine.
      Oh yes, THEY are  out there!

    I love the space smileys. Very cool.

    I would hope that there would be life somewhere else. If you could eventually go to whatever planet they are from to see it,
    I would hope that it is a better planet than ours.

    The only thing I would worry about, is if they are like the aliens from the movie aliens. They might just want to eat us, or impregnate us with their offspring.

    A planet full of Yoda-like creatures would be cool. Show me the force! So, I can go up to an employer and say, you will give me a job, and you will give me a raise and call me master! Or, is that the darkside? I can never tell! LOL!

    Creationism would have us believe the earth was the center of the universe and everything in it was put here for our "dominion"

    Of course, the possibilities and probabilities of life existing elsewhere is very high, while ET visiting earth is extremely low.

        (Q)posted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Very true. There has been a great deal of study in regards to space travel and how it affects living things. As well, since nothing can travel at the speed of light or faster, we are left with spending many years trying to get to other star systems. Couple that with the problems of living in space and you literally have an impossible task.

          Sara Tonynposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          That's not quite right. Einstein believed particles couldn't travel faster than light...

          But radio waves already have been made to travel faster and sound may be able to do the same thing.

          Plus, there's the VSL theory so who knows? Travel to planets light years away may be possible and even practical someday. 


          But probably not real soon. lol

              Yep. That's another possibility and there's a theory based on it but I can't remember who came up with it. For some reason I'm thinking it was some university in Texas but I could easily be wrong.

            (Q)posted 6 years ago in reply to this

            Particles with no mass travel at the speed of light, such as light and gravity. Particles with mass cannot attain light speed.



            Nope.



            What's that?

              Sara Tonynposted 6 years ago in reply to this

              My point was that he was talking about particles. He didn't say "nothing" can travel faster than the speed of light.



              Sorry, you're wrong. John Singleton did it with a polarization synchrotron 2 or 3 years ago.




              Varying Speed of Light, John Moffat. Then Joao Magueijo built upon it. It's fascinating -- and just might change physics a whole bunch!

                (Q)posted 6 years ago in reply to this

                Nothing can travel faster than the speed of light, only massless particles travel AT light speed.



                No, he didn't.




                Sorry, but there's no such thing as varying light speed. Physics doesn't change simply because you say so.

                  You're referring to particles again. I'm not.

                  Maybe you're thinking of the illusions of superluminal velocity in some of his work?

                  Gee, it doesn't? You need to learn to read. I said "Plus, there's the VSL theory...". That theory still exists. Read Magueijo's book and be amazed.

                  If you want to discuss this further, that's fine. But it will have to be without using your 'Q' sock puppet and with a better attitude.

                  Yeah, I didn't think you would.

                    (Q)posted 6 years ago in reply to this

                    Then, you can only be referring to nonsense.



                    No, I'm not. You have simply been mislead by crackpottery.



                    His theory is bunkum so far. He has no evidence. The speed of light is "invariant." You may want to look up that definition.



                    You can wrongly assert your crank science just as you wrongly assert that I'm a sock puppet.

                    And, even I was a sock puppet, how is that relevant to the fact that you're wrong?

    Harrassing The Christians in the forumns. Look you don't give a damn about what we believe and I haven't heard anyone tell you you have to do anything. You spew one slanderous remark after another under the protection of the monitor of the forumns. If we point out your faults in an agressive manner we get banned.

      Providing dollops of reality to the deluded is not harassment. True harassment is what Christians do to the rest of us, but you all like to call it evangelism.



      I do give a damn, that's why I'm here. The beliefs of Christians are seriously damaging to mankind, and unlike Christians, I actually care about mankind and its future.



      No, that's what you do. You constantly toss out such remarks until it comes back and bites you, like the other day when you told someone their mother was coming, but it was explained to you that she was dead for some years. How did your shoe taste, btw?



      That's because you are unable to point out any faults and simply toss out insults instead, hence you get banned. I just came off a three day ban myself because I called someone out here on a lie and they reported me. Apparently, you can lie all you want and get away with it.

          That's rather comical. I understand completely that your beliefs are mere myths and superstitions because they are exactly the same myths and superstitions of the religions that came before.



          Who said I thought you were a horrible person? You're probably a great guy in which we could both share a beer and a have a laugh. It's your religion that's the problem.

    I believe there are truly worlds without number out there.  I think many are peopled with the same social problems, dreams, hopes and love that we experience here.  I believe they all vary in degrees of technology.  I believe some have advanced to interplanetary travel to other civilizations as we have never seen.  Whether or not we have been visited I know not.  I believe these things exist and hope for the day when the propulsion will be devised to make such "first contacts" possible.

    I've read a theory that WE came from a different planet. Original life may have actually begun on Venus.

    It is not possible that life does not exist anywhere else in the universe. I'm not convinced the aliens speak English though.
    I'm not sold on the two arms & two legs format, either.

      As we seem to be made of star stuff, it would be unlikely that those from another planet would be anything like us. We need arms and legs, but other life forms would likely be very different. smile
      It would seem mathematically highly unlikely that we are alone in this universe.

        Carl Sagan might have been right, you know. There are at least 10 billion suns in our galaxy.  Each star would have to have at least 5 or 6 satellites going around it. Let us say, some 50 billion planets.

        100,000 in 50 billion is  one  planet in 500,000. Doesn't look too far-fetched, does it?

    What you also have to remember is that intelligence is a matter of perspective. Far too often people say that a species isn't intelligent unless it can build houses, start wars, or write really crappy movies like Gigli and Space Jam.

    To me the Humpbacked whale is a wonderfully intelligent being as are dolphins and sea lions. If you were to find that a planet were full of animals like these would you automatically say, "Nope, not intelligent. Dig in!"

        It states right from the get go they are calculating the gradient of a "rotating" superluminal pattern source of light. It is the rotating source of light that is key here.

        For example, if you take a high powered laser beam and sweep it quickly across the surface of the moon, it will "appear" as if the reflection of light we measure back is moving "faster than light" across the surface. It isn't because the pattern gradient has been dispersed, which Singleton refers to as "non-spherically decaying radiation"  which he is demonstrating and referring to a specific observation of quasars.

          Remember when I asked you if you were being confused by superluminal velocity illusions?  ("Maybe you're thinking of the illusions of superluminal velocity in some of his work?")  I believe that's what you're doing.

          Maybe we should look at phase velocity vs wave velocity first, yes? Is that the crux of the matter?

          The moon reference is an example of the basic principle involved but it doesn't go far enough to explain the polarization synchrotron technology.

          (Keep in mind that rotating sources of electromagnetic radiation with speeds in excess of the speed of light in vacuo have been created in a laboratory.)

          I've always thought that it was a time warp kind of thingie. That is  where another dimension would be.
          Time is relivent to the speed of light. The speed of light is not absolutely consistent. Therefore a fuzzing over between timelines could be possible.
             The speed of light slows down when entering the gravitational forces of the planets. When it leaves the gravity of the planet it resumes it's origional speed. All that is necesary to jump to a diffrent dimension is to figure out what causes the light ray to resume it's origional speed after leaving the gravitional pull.
             Upon resuming to its origional speed it would be in a diffrent place in time than the light ray that it had been traveling side by side with moments before. 
             And when it had been slowed down within the gravitional pull of the planet; it was in a diffrent dimension entirely.

            Anything that happens naturaly in nature can be  artifically duplicated. That is how they do it.
             Now everyone known that I am as crazy as I think that I am.

            The speed of light is invariant and is a result of the permeability and permittivity of space. In other words, space has determined via it's own properties a speed limit on particles traveling through it.



            Wrong, the speed of light remains constant. What happens is that the light gains energy when falling into a "gravity well" and begins to shift to the blue spectrum. It moves to the red spectrum when leaving the gravity well as it loses its energy.

              I do not remember where I read that, but will search and attempt find it again.
                It is commonly understood by science that light can not escape the gravitional force of a black hole.
                It would seem logical that when a light ray is passing by the hole that depending upon the distance from the hole it would either be pulled into it or escape.
                 What about those light rays that pass far enough away as to not be pulled into it yet too close to go on its way uneffected?
                 I'll research this question later but I know that you already have the answer. So could you enlighten me?

                It is called the 'event horizon,' Jerami. Light follows paths through space called "geodesics" - it is these geodesics that are curved back towards an object such as a black hole, but it could be any object with mass. The event horizon of a black hole is the point where the geodesics curve back towards the black hole, hence the light follows those paths back thus not escaping the gravitational field.

                The light DOES NOT speed up or slow down, it remains at a constant speed.

        Yes I could swear the bloke next door is one. He turned green when I gave him a taste of my Marble Cake. I accidentally used a cup of bi-card instead of a cup of flour in the recipe. Yikes.

      The problem is you can say that about anything, leprechauns, the tooth fairy, etc. And, when there isn't a shred of evidence to suggest we are being visited by aliens and mountains of evidence to support the fact that they couldn't possibly be visiting us, why would we bother considering it and kowtowing to the believers?

        No I don't believe in the tooth fairies, not a lot of those have been spotted in the world.

          Then, you have equal reason to not believe in visiting aliens, because not a single one has ever been spotted of them, either. smile

    I will believe in ET's when there is some proof. Like a lot of things people believe in, there is no proof that I have seen.

    If the universe is flat as the latest theories would indicate, then there may be ET's, but until someone provides proof, why believe in them?
