Just for you.
Eurythmics - Sweet Dreams
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.
Are you sure about that? There seems to be some debate on that issue.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.
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".
Scientists have found the beginnings of life-bearing chemistry at the centre of the galaxy.That is of course assuming that you accept radio astronomy as valid.
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.
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.
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.
