I know this is off topic and am NOT sure if Im in the right thread. If not delete it.

I just found this fasinating and thought I wold share it with you all, to see if you've heard about this yet.

Awesome news about science. They have found another planet just like Earth. No word yet on life forms, but exciting nonetheless.

go check it out its pretty facinating. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/technology/technology.html?in_article_id=450467&in_page_id=1965

The planet is small and the sun is small... all I could imagine is a race of tiny little green men... or gray? :shock: what if they already contacted us? :shock: :shock:

Who or what would bother to contact earth? There is no intelligent life to be found here. Kurt Vonnegut once called the population of we humans as "A meat iceberg, spreading over the planet, devouring everything in it's path." (Or something like that?)
"What is that up in the night's sky? It is getting larger, closer it comes, I can almost make it out...spaceships! Lettering on their sides...it says .."Eat ME!"
They arrive from the planet "Barnyardia!" in methane-powered crafts.
Quickly! Break out the emergency steak sauce and the charcoal brickettes!

Damn it! I am terrible with math! I actually read it so fast so, there may be parts to which I didn't paid attention... like say the 90% of the article? :oops:

But my point is that I've read so much conspiranoic literature that I am having troubles trying to see what is real and what's not LOL
I am a skeptic, but if you get me some really convincing text which can't be proved to be 100% wrong I might actually end up buying it! Like lovecraft's text about the ancient ones or that text about a planet called 'hercolubus' or 'hercobulus' whatever it is spelled, check it out, this is the website of the nutjob that discovered the planet:

and this is the wikipedia article:

Think about it for a moment. If there are really lifeforms on other planets, that would make us aliens to them. So WHY are we NOT aliens instead of humans. Or is human another word of alien so we all dont freak out. Cause seriously we all be looking at aliens all day long. So look in a mirror and you my friend will be looking at an alien(yourself).

Looking at all the various insects and sea creatures on this watery planet, I have always thought they might be the original inhabitants here and yes, we sprung from the loins of interplanetary voyagers.
I read many years ago that tracing evolution backwards via cell splitting timeframes(I'm referring to brain cells specifically) that we should not be here yet, we should still be monkeys(Well, allright some of us still are...)
Maybe our brain cells began really multiplying faster when we all began eating flesh? Flesh in a fresh bun...with pickles...and faux-blood, ketchup?
Maybe our pre-historic gene-poolers were not the highest order of those aliens? Maybe they were left behind because they couldn't be trained to not to eat flesh!
Now that the planet is full of such dangerous creatures, why would they want to return?

Don't think so, 'HUMAN' was a word coined exclusively to call ourselves, not monkeys, not dogs or rabbits, just us; humans. In english you call aliens to any foreign lifeform E.G. Illegal aliens, alien species(?) and that's not even out of planet earth, you call aliens to anything out of USA, the word's most notable connotation has to do with extra-terrestrials, which means literally out-of-earth, so, why would we; humans, call ourselves extra-terrestrials if we are standing on this filthy little piece of dirt in the middle of the solar system that we call planet earth?
Now, for them, we are aliens, we couldn't even be called extra-terrestrials cause you see, 'terrestrial' comes from 'terra' which is latin for earth, so... I don't know what dead tonges have the intelligent alien species out there... maybe they call their planet 'moron' so we are maybe 'extra-morons' for them... and what if they don't use the word 'extra' as a prefix? I mean, after all 'extra' means 'more than is needed' so what if for aliens 'extra' is 'oxy' then would that make us 'oxy-morons'? LOL

And you have a really good point there Jim, I always tought that the theory of 'Panspermia' has potential. As for the braincell stuff, well, you are 90% right, it has to do with protein ingest, but not with hamburgers or meat whatsoever. It all goes back to our common ancestor 'the ergaster' or whatever it is spelled, this little monkey was just another prey in the african savana, just like the apes. Well, all this monkey could eat were the carcasses left by the big cats like the sabre tooth or other predators, well, long story short, all this predators left on the carcasses after their dinner was bones, but, after all inside the bone is the most nutritive thing; the medula. So this monkeys would come down from the trees and steal some bones from the sabre tooth food leftovers and break them with rocks and eat the medula. After some thousands of generations the ergasters evolved into a little bit more complex life form: the homo erectus, cause you know, the need of the use of both hands forced them to stand on 2 feet, 'erectus' is latin for erected. The rest like they say is history.
What's coming in the future? NOTHING, with all the medical advances and ingeenering and all that crap we killed human evolution, we; humans can't evolve anymore cause we eliminated the one factor that made us evolve; the need of survive, the need of eating, hunting, the need of adapt.
