  1. I’ve always figured that with all the planets in all the solar systems in the entire universe, there surely must be life on a lot of them, whether or not it’s life as we know it. So it figures there’d be civilizations too, although maybe not civilization as we know it. Ant colony, anyone? Pond scum? Or maybe civilizations so advanced they’d see us as pond scum. Who knows? Fascinating to contemplate …


    • I reached pretty much the same conclusion when I was a very young boy PT. It wasn’t until I realized that I was surrounded by people who were crazy enough to disagree that I started looking for “intellectual ammunition” like this to back up my arguments! 😀


  2. Hi IzaakMak so hows you doing??? … I see you are floating around with those aliens again 😉
    Are we alone? No! not for a long while.. Will we be Alone! Yes… at the rate we are going! ..

    Sending you my thoughts .. and just keeping my Alien Eye on you! 🙂


    • For some reason this has been at the top of my “Reigning Rants” list for a while. Which is surprising, considering how long the Drake Equation’s been around. Of course, search terms like “photo of alien calculator” makes me wonder if people were expecting something else… 🙄
