"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. That they may have been the architects of the great pyramids, or the lost civilizations of Lemuria or Atlantis. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive somewhere beyond the heavens."
Battlestar Galactica intro
We have to address this article that mentions Professor Morris's stance on "Why we are alone in the Universe"...
"'Esteemed' Cambridge University evolution expert Professor Simon Conway Morris said the chances of intelligent alien life were low. If evolution were the same throughout the universe it would be unthinkable that advanced space travellers in older parts of the universe should not have reached the Earth by now, he said. Prof Conway Morris added: ‘That did not happen, and it will not happen. We never had any visitors, nor is it worth setting up a reception committee in the hope that one day they might turn up. They are not there, and we are alone."
This guy is out of his mind!
First of all, why would evolution be the same throughout the Universe? Does this guy think the Universe is just the Milky Way?
His theory that "they" should have reached here by now, if that had happened is flawed at best, ludicrous at worst.
Secondly, EVERY...Let's make this very clear...EVERY SINGLE CIVILIZATION on Earth says we came from "out there." That life was seeded here from out there. And further, EVERY RELIGION ON EARTH...EVERY ONE...claims that their God/Gods came from "Heaven", "Space"...NOT FROM EARTH. Even the most populous religions on Earth, i.e. Judeo-Christian, Islam, Muslim adhere to this to this day.
Thirdly, it is a fact that the Earth was visited in ancient times by aliens. The ancient peoples themselves tell us so through surviving writings. The archaeological evidence is pretty in your face about it, too. You have to really want to not see it to believe that we weren't visited. We'll do another article on this with all the evidence.
Fourth, how arrogant can you be to believe that we are alone in the Universe? Didn't that type of thinking die out centuries ago?
Fifth, the numbers are on the side of life being everywhere.
Let's take a look at the Drake Equation:
N = R* fp ne fl fi fc L
N = The number of communicative civilizations
R* = The rate of formation of suitable stars (like the Sun)
fp = The fraction of those stars with planets.
ne = The number of Earth-like worlds per planetary system
fl = The fraction of those Earth-like planets where life actually develops
fi = The fraction of life sites where intelligence develops
fc = The fraction of communicative planets
L = The "lifetime" of communicating civilizations
The current solution to the Drake Equation estimates 10,000 communicative civilizations in the Milky Way, alone.
So it is in our opinion that Professor Simon Conway Morris is what we call a Xenophobe. Which is "the fear of people who are different from one's self." This means this guy cannot visualize, out of fear, that life may have evolved elsewhere that looks, behaves or sounds anything like a human being, hence..."we are alone."
Just this week NASA announced the discovery of over 54 planets that can sustain life.
