      with billions of galaxies out there, i don't think our planet is the only one with a form of intelligent life on it.

          You are searching in the wrong place for enlightenment you will not find it outside yourself.  You must look within to find what you seek.

              Who says and where is it written that we (i am assuming you mean humanity) have any lien on the universe.  What makes it ours?

                  Have you read any of David Icke's books?  He presents some radical theories including terrestrials from a fourth dimension. Interesting reading even if it is all mythology.

                    I seldom read "myth" (fiction) anymore.
                    Thanks for the suggestion.

      We'll probably never survive long enough to gain the knowledge to prove it one way or the other. Then too it depends on what you mean by alone? Does bacteria in the ice on the moon count as company?

      What's amazing to me is how many people the deny the existence of god have no problem in believing in para normal activity, ghosts and aliens from outer space!

      It’s an interesting thought, I tend to sit on the fence which I know is playing safe but I have read other readers comments and one thing that’s hits home is the intelligent thought that a lot of people have put into this piece, again a enjoyable read and I will follow everyone’s comments with interest, keep up the good work and thank you hub pages for continued dedication to letting the public have a voice.

    Our World is made up of Sugar and Spice and everything nice, well one can dream. Are we unique I believe since we are so messed up we are one of a kind, the mold was broken after God realized what a mistake it was to create all of us. Just my opinion. smile

    quark, are you trying to find God? I'm not the person to help you. I think I'm too critical. Many say I'm judgemental. But whats with all the God related comments and questions? I think something is weighing on your heart and mind.

      Hi Sooner:
      Gee, I dont know.
      What the heck is this god thing everyone mentions?
      Maybe if someone could define it, factually, for me, I might consider it. Can you?
      Others have tried but,gosh, all they offer is opinion and conjecture. I can't be bothered with "guess."
      So to answer your question, I can't. Don't know what you are talking about.
      Thanks for the interest tho. :-)

        the interest in a proper education usually starts with sarcasm or light joking because it is that in which you do not understand. I'm glad to see you take interest in something you don't understand but eventually joking about the unknown will limit your knowledge. Just ask when ready.

            Don't bait me sir. I've had my share of these 'going nowhere' conversations. I know there is nothing that I might say that will turn the switch on and it is likewise of me. "he who has an ear, let him hear" <--- there is plenty of evidence and/or information to sift through. Saddly, finding truth in all of the variations is hard, but we are in the prophetic time of confusion. The best to you really, but I won't go there anymore.

              You asked me to tell you when I was ready for answers.
              Here I am asking...again.
              Could it be possible that you have nothing to offer of value?
              Methinks that may be the problem...:-)

      I'll bet ya all my donuts until 2036 that you don't even know what terraform would be like before 2011, let alone 2012!  (terraform? is that like when you return the bottom of the form with your payment of fee?)

      I dunno skyfire...we can't even manage to get one of the Mars rovers out of a sandtrap...Terraforming might be a *teensy* bit out of our grasp.

      But I'm sure *they* *want* to.

      Na, I bet population control would be way more cost effective and controlable by the government. You know, cheap poisons, a few large wars, stop oil consumption- heck anything could kill 1/3 of the population in a month. Terraforming is all sci-fi.

    we are not alone...the thing I find interesting is that people only think along the lines of this physical plane of existence...

    we are not alone in this plane, and, more so, in the other dimensions of existence.

    souls exist in other dimensions at other levels of consciousness and are interacting with us whether we know it, believe it or recognize it or not.

    it really is pretty silly to be so arrogant to think we are all that exists in this vast universe of universes  smile
