    A simple bone or mud would send shock waves through humanity.

    They found some plastic the other day.

    I think NASA know more than they let on.

    I really hope they announce that they have found the building blocks for life or something that proved life does/once existed on Mars.

    Yes I Know. But it sounds more exciting without putting that in.


    If they had found life I wonder how those conservative irreligious folk who refuse any existence of life outside of Earth would explain it away.

    Only for a day or two, then the world would carry on as normal. Think of the Turin Shroud. Proven to be fake, still makes millions from tourists who WANT to believe it's real. To be honest there's very little that would send shockwaves through humanity.

    It;s sad really but we are generally small minded creatures and as much as we like to think different all that really matters to us is what we encounter in our daily routine. I think in one of the Discworld books Death says something along the the line of "humans are so fascinating as they can invent boredom"

    That kind of makes me feel a bit depressed


    Edit: On the plus side I have reached 1000 posts! Party time! What do I win?

    I feel like I should now be a supreme member of this forum.

    I'm fairly sure the majority of the population are purposely kept numb in the mind. It's easy to see it, on the television and in other media or by religion. The aim of those things are to keep as many people as possible numb so that the 1% who control not just all the wealth but all the world as well can continue to be the only enlightened human beings on the planet.

    I find that the shite on the television makes me angry. Like x-factor, soaps or whatever, so I don't watch the television. Religion disgusts me, it's an insult to the human race, so I don't do that. It sucks that the human race is small minded as a whole as the potential to be so much more is there, it's just not used.
