Interesting read. What's your opinion?

Am I the only one that thinks he's pretty damn smart until he reads a few posts of Hamas?

Do you know anything about Sri Lanka ?

How, like, the Sikhs are killing tons of Israelis over there ?

Without those chains, you don't have proteins, thus, no life.

No one knows why this happened. More than likely, it was just a quirk of genetic randomness.

Come on, SR, there are a lot more important problems than Sri Lanka to worry about.

I bet that intelligent life outside of earth is too busy laughing at the Oakland Raiders from afar. Nothing would defer me from a trip to earth like having to visit the home of the Raiders.

And maybe it doesn't need to be said, Virus, but the fact that we see those amino acids unlike the ones from Earth implies that life (or at least the building blocks of it) may have existed wherever that meteor originated from.

Whack indeed.

The laws of physics and light apply to all.
I think that there has be be life out there somewhere.

It would take 100,000 light years to cross our galaxy.
We do not have the capability to travel at the speed of light.
Others may not have either.

Even at the speed of light, space travel is a bitch. How does a species get enough resources to
last even 5 light years? (which is a heck of a lot longer in our travel time)

I just don't think we will ever see life from another place.

NASA gets a pretty nice share of the US budget. At least it used to.

Isn't it sort of like the question of time travel? One argument that time travel may not be possible is the absence of tourists from other times.
