All that fine tuning has killed 99% of all species that ever lived on Earth.
We’ll be fine-tuned out of existence eventually.
People only talk about fine-tuning where the conditions are right. There is no conversation about fine-tuning on Venus or Mercury.
To calculate the probability of intelligent life, pick a number out of the air. Then multiply it by the number of galaxies, the number of solar systems per galaxy, and the number of rocky planets in each solar system.
So far life has occurred 100% of all planets of which we have direct detailed knowledge.
I’ve already mentioned this before; In Oz.we have one great rule suitable for all occasions; “Don’t be a cunt” Being a fucktard is skating on very thin ice.
Umm, after White’s post, I didn’t bother reading what’s his name’s clip. There was mention of much bible quoting,a warning sign in itself.
This atheist is interested in empirical evidence for the existence of god, any god. Bible quotes may nor be used to prove, well, anything,because it’s myth. IE for the eleventy fifth time on this this forum alone: Believers MADE IT ALL UP.
Hence when a believer says “the bible says; Flungle my dungle over a right threaded kerfunklewurztle” The polite response is " What?" , or if one is miffed “So what?”
I hope the clip below isn’t too subtle for Americans. I apologise to Canadians,who are not allowed to say cunt. (Source; song by the immortal Kevin Bloody Wilson " You Can’t say cunt in Canada)
A tone deaf friend was once visiting Canada, for Xmas, staying with friends. He WAS warned. So what did he do? He put Kevin Bloody Wilson on the stereo. The first song started: :“Santa Claus you c—, where’s my fucking bike?’”
My friend turned around to notice he was alone-----
Context: I try to avoid the word, I think it’s ugly. I usually need to be very annoyed indeed. Call a bloke that here and there’s a good chance of getting decked.
I suppose the next step is to get Richard Branston to send a manned craft to mars to spend some time doing experiments in situ.
Pretty exciting stuff. Seems to me it may only be a matter of time before we discover that mars has life now, or did in the past.
I’m beginning to think that the 21st century could be as exciting as my time, in the second half of the twentieth.
Of course I’m assuming this century’s crop of companies and other assorted fuckwits will not manage to make our planet uninhabitable for human beings. Seems to me that as each year passes that assumption seems a bit less unlikely.
Imo the extinction of humanity is probably the best thing which could happen to our planet.
I think by the time Branston gets there he’ll need to book a room in the Mars Tesla Hotel. Elon Musk is launching a global satellite-based Internet service and plans to put all the revenues from that into the development of a colony on Mars.
There seems to be substantial amounts of water on Mars and the Moon, and even a little on Mercury.
I wouldn’t bet on his flying cars, batteries, or tube trains, but the satellites have already started to go up. By this time next year you should be able to get unlimited high-speed low-latency access anywhere on Earth for about $80 through an antenna the size of a pizza box. Then Telstra can stop fucking me and go fuck itself.
Astronomers have been squawking loudly about the light pollution. I believe they redesigned the satellites to prevent reflection, but there’s not much to be done about ones already up there. Eventually there’ll be thousands of them.
