Markjo, I'm not sure if you realize... I am not discounting the possibility that extraterrestrial life exists. I am pointing out that at present we have no proof that extraterrestrial life exists and that's something entirely different. So when you say "you sure about that?", well, the answer is obviously no. And neither are you, and that's my point. The article you link is intriguing but it's far from enough to state that extraterrestrial life exists with certainty, as it is still not life it is talking about.

First a motorist barrels into a crowded sidewalk, then a suicide bombing at a pop concert. I should have realized when Trump won the election, life has become a Stephen King novel.
As much as I'm not a Trump fan, we really can't blame this one on him.  Stupid shit like this has been going on pretty much since Cain and Abel.

I'm sorry, it's actually brutal honesty in the face of an almost cultlike opposition. What do large numbers of habitable planets mean when we have no idea the probability of life in the first place?
Seeing how scientists have found life flourishing in inhospitable places like hydrothermal vents, hot springs, salt lakes, etc., I think that it's a pretty safe bet that life will exist pretty much anywhere in the universe that conditions allow.

Markjo, according to scientists life only began on this planet once, hence the notion that all life on Earth can be traced to a single ancestor.
Are you sure about that?  There seems to be some debate on that issue.
Panspermia is a Greek word that translates literally as "seeds everywhere". The panspermia hypothesis states that the "seeds" of life exist all over the Universe and can be propagated through space from one location to another. Some believe that life on Earth may have originated through these "seeds".

The fact that complex organic molecules have been found in interstellar space suggests that they may very well be onto something.
Scientists have found the beginnings of life-bearing chemistry at the centre of the galaxy.

Iso-propyl cyanide has been detected in a star-forming cloud 27,000 light-years from Earth.

Its branched carbon structure is closer to the complex organic molecules of life than any previous finding from interstellar space.
That is of course assuming that you accept radio astronomy as valid.

We are talking about the odds that life will form in the first place, not that it will then be able to flourish in inhospitable places, and your comment does nothing to address that issue.
The fact that life formed on earth means that the odds of life forming anywhere in the universe are greater than zero.

If you have an actual response to the points I make be my guest and post them. Otherwise don't expect another response.
Perhaps you need to make better points.

According to the FErs ....
Satellites and the ISS do not exist and are nothing more than a Government funded Media hoax ..
all photos and video are produced in an elaborate state-of-the-art studio.

I get no answers either ..... so much for "debate" .... good luck

We can't possibly identify their motives for doing this. We may never know. However, what we can tell you is that it was just a lone wolf. An isolated incident. Move on, nothing to see here.

Oh, and the lone wolf whose motives cannot be identified was happy to inform us of his intentions hours before the bombing. What a nice guy.

Wow, I didn't even make the Mr. Mercedes connection.

That's super depressing, though. I hate this shit. :[

There are now a few amateur videos out there of the ISS passing the moon.  The p900 has an awesome zoom that has to bee seen to believe it.  Optical 83x, 2000 mm equivalent.  Are these all fake?

There are many amateur photos and videos of ISS taken with telescopes.   Do these not prove it exists or are they all lying?

I have an app called Skywalk on my iPad that shows locations of celestial objects including man-made satellites.   As soon as a new commercial satellite is launched it gets added to the database and you can locate and track it with the naked eye.  Please tell me how this is possible and what are satellites if not orbital vehicles?

Note that many go north south as well as west to east.

I did a search, some FE people say there are satellites and some say there are not.
