    Oh, undoubtedly. I think the idea that we're all alone in the universe sounds too much like people want humans to be speshul. I doubt we will contact extraterrestrials any time soon, but I really wonder how religion would react to this. Has anyone wrote a good sci-fi book about that? I mean, Dune goes into religion post-earth, but there aren't really any aliens.
    Well that's the brilliance of science and mathematics. They allow us to see the world for what it really is, not what it appears to be. Or, at least, get a little closer to reality every time anyway haha.


    The idea of only Earth having life would be the weirdest anomaly ever found in science. If it turns out to be true, the theists probably have a point haha! I'm not sure if I've read one, off the top of my head, but I want to be a sci-fi/fantasy novelist so I'll give it a shot lol.

    True. I guess I was also referring to the people who think that science and mathematics is another illusion, whom I think the guy in the website would probably agree with. I think that, while it's possible, it's convincing enough that it wouldn't matter.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    He uses the words "I" and "I'm" a lot. Often [not always], INFJ authors will refer to themselves in 3rd person as if someone else is doing the writing because they'd be more focused on the reader [or rather on projecting what they imagine the reader will want to see] than on themselves. This person is self-focused....just noting.
