If, as the majority say, that life arose from an interaction between energy and inert matter, and that given the shear number of other [probable] solar systems, stars and galaxies. Where is ET? The truth is, abiogenesis is looked upon as a biological after-thought by everyone from conventional scientists, the mainstream media to most of you here. Couple this with the unimaginable numbers of the cosmos and "Where are they?", becomes a pertinent question. Have we not discovered them yet? Or, are we alone, the sole benefactors of some cosmic lottery? I would say the second contention is the most easily dismissed. If life occurrs so easily and so often, to propose that intelligent life only exists in one place in this vast universe would seem counter-intuitive. The first contention, is less easily dismissed, though one would think that, someone, somewhere in the universe would have developed radio-electric capabilities, to the extent that we would be able to detect the signal by now. Indeed, one could argue, given the universal physical laws, that the development of this capability in an intelligent society would be highly probable, if not inevitable. Where are they? In my veiw, "they" don`t exist. At least not in the form Hollywood would have us believe. Jesus said, "In my Fathers house, are many mansions.." if this were not true, it would be "a waste of space", to borrow a colloquialism. I believe there are beings out there, some good some bad, never in-between. I also believe they have no use for such temporal rudiments as radio-astronomy. As I await the responses, I should point out that from the Biblical perspective there is little of this non-phenomena to explain, it is exactly as I would expect it to be. The burden shifts to the materialists and others to attempt to explain this away. Good luck and God Bless.
