Of course it's possible that several of these processes took place, but that's what I mean, how many process did it took to finally succeed? What if it was a billion times?
My argument in this thread was not whether these processes took place or not, but whether any living things can come out from these processes and thrive on their planet.


If that's the case, then that just makes it even more likely that there IS more life out there. If abiogenesis occurs so easily, it is eventually bound to succeed.

I hope you're not suggesting that they can invent some sort of "invisibility cloak" just because they're more advanced civilisations. Or that they can become immune to the atmospheric pressure that they're not used to.


No, but what I'm saying is that they've probably advanced far enough to be able to determine such factors without going down there themselves.
As for cloaking devices, even we have that. So to imagine that a civilization that is thousands of years ahead of us technologicly would have a far more advanced version is not a far fetched thought at all.

I find it strange that such a vast universe would be created just for us. The only form of life we recognize is based on carbon. In actual fact life based on silicon is theoretically possible. Such a silicon life form could exhale silicon dioxide, i.e. sand, and could thrive in environments which we couldn't even exist. We could even now be surrounded by alien life and never even recognize it was there. The reality is that we don't know much of anything yet. So let's continue to explore, and see what we find.

There is just so much life on this planet alone, that you could spend your lifetime exploring this planet we call home, and you want sci fi to be real, and you want aliens, they're right across the border of your country.

Earth is dull, I want to get freaky with an alien with three tits.

Only in Hollywood, or if you attend the Grand Slam Star Trek Convention, may you get FREAKY with one, or maybe two.

You know what they say about Klingons? " We're RIDGED for your pleasure. " LOL

heh, I'd have to convince the lady to dress up if I ever went to a Star Trek convention. It's on my bucket list!

My very first Star Trek Convention was held at the Los Angeles Convention center, back in 1980, (back then, I only had a TOS Engineer's/Security tunic, Yes the dreaded red shirt) But some of the most wild aliens were there too, like a female/butterfly. starfleet personnel in Kilts, Klingons were rarely seen that day.

(I joined KAG in 1998 and " Klingon upped " in March 2000).

look closely at the shoulder armor, the " metal border of the shoulder piece, is also leather, painted to look like metal and rivited on.

now look at the edges of the sash, can you see what the edge is made of?

the vest part is a cloth fishing vest, with vinyl strips sewn on it, the fur sleeves, are attached to a T-Shirt that's under the costume/uniform/armor.

I'm not a Canadian, I'm an American so I don't follow Canadian Politics much. With that said I came across this youtube video where Paul Hellyer the former defense minister apparently gave a full disclosure on the United States and Canadian dealings with Alien visitors as well as military government coverup of their existance...

Is this guy fairly well known by Canadians? Is he brushed aside as a bit of a nut job in Canada? I wish I could say I believe what he is saying... but it all sounds kinda crazy.

So what y'all are saying is that there's a chance that The Covenant is real? I'm kidding.

But I personally find it hard to believe that in a universe this big that there isn't other planets with life, and quite honestly I don't think there's such thing as a grayskin with huge black eyes and huge heads and all they wanna do is experiment on you, what I'm saying that maybe there are other humans out there.

I'm just going to disregard all those brainiac astrobiologists saying that there is probability of life somewhere in the universe because of the millions and billions of stars and star systems therefore enabling at least several simultaneous genesis of living things.

I have a belief that the probability of life existing outside of the Solar System is much much closer to nil; I say this because even though there are billions and billions of planets, not many can actually come close to having the perfect habitable zone that Earth has. I mean, even if Earth was just a teeny tiny bit closer or further away from the Sun, life could not have even started much less flourished.

In addition, what about the requirement for abiogenesis to actually occur? What if the probability of that happening is incredibly low? And what are the chances that a stimulant would appear at the time right time at the formation of a primordial "soup"?

All these requirements make me think about how hard it is for life to actually occur. (I hope nobody thinks I believe in god or anything like that or think that life on Earth is special) I just think it might be due to incredible luck, really.

In response to your idea about aliens visiting the planet Earth. I doubt that will ever happen, because if life were to exist outside of the Solar System, it is highly unlikely that they will be consist of the same elemental bases that life on Earth contain, which is Carbon, and also the atmospheric gases on Earth could be lethal to those extraterrestrial life and the difference in pressure and gravity.
It would be foolish for any extraterrestrial life to come straight into the Earth's atmosphere without at least studying the components, the atmospheric pressure and the gravity of this planet. And if they were able to make it this far, I doubt they would be able to hide their spaceship.



P.S. I'm sorry if I'm not making sense. I get so used to talking to myself about the mysteries of the universe, I doubt they actually make any sense to someone else.




Maybe you should do some homework?
In just a radios of 30 light years from us. We have found over 50+ earth like planets just like earth including water and land.

On another Note planets don't need to be like earth, evolution has show life adapts to all types of environments. Most scientist believe if there is some form of matter and a steady source of power/energy from heat to sun light. Than the chances for life is there!
Do you know AIR is poison to new life? We adapted to live off the poison that the plants that came before us produced. Earth did not have air till early life produced it all, then life had to adapt to that poison or die off.

I know that. There are still anaerobic organisms nowadays that cannot tolerate oxygen. Humans and others are aerobic, they need oxygen for metabolism.
Oxygen is still toxic to aerobic organisms at the higher purity... and oxygen radicals are responsible for cells damage over the lifespan of the organism.

But I don't see how any of this has anything to do with the requirement of the start of life?
My point was touching on the requirement. I wrote I believed that the requirement might be much more difficult than people think.

I don't believe that life can just start from any planet with water and land... there must be some sort of requirement, but nobody knows what that is, yet.

And I know that life adapt to a planet, not the planet catering for it...

A source of power, and a way to circulate the material that lady became RNA or another living form of replicating memory strands.
As for earth this was formed by a mix of early earths Underwater volcano vents, and Nasty Thunderstorms that plagued early earth.


On Europa a moon that orbits Jupiter it scientist believe can support life do to the energy created from friction wen the ice shell of the outer crust of the moon heats the inner ocean that makes up 99% of the inside of the moon.

So even in are own solar system we have moons and planets that may be able to support life underneath its crust.

I used to believe in ufos and all that stuff, but most of those people that write books and make shows just want money. It's all a scam, although I still enjoy listening in to "coast to coast am" every once in a while & the "mysterious universe" podcast. In my opinion it's just entertainment that makes you think, "what if"
