ASTRONOMY
    How could it NOT be?

.

Our galaxy, the Milky Way, contains
250 Billion stars, plus or minus 150 Billion.
(latest estimate -
look it up)
.

The universe contains 100 Billion galaxies.
(Latest estimate -
look it up).
.

So, how many stars are there?
Conservatively, 250 Billion times 100 Billion.
250,000,000,000 x 100,000,000,000 =
25,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 =
25 sextillion

And YOU, are arrogant enough to think that ONLY ONE has a planet with intelligent life?
My, my. Astounding.
.

MOST stars are binary pairs, which orbit each other. Our single sun is in the minority, as far as solar systems go.

Many people lose their mind, when trying to grasp these ideas. I, on the other hand, have no issue believing these FACTS, because they are FACTS.
Many will change, as our understanding increases.

Far, far different from the teachings of the Catholic Church for 2,000 years.
NOTHING must change established religious dogma. Certainly not Copernicus or Galileo.

The Bible, and Archbishop Ussher told us that Adam was created in October of 4,004 BC. No mention of the
Big Bang of 13.6 billion years ago, or the archeological evidence of 66-million-year-old history of humans,
or black holes, dark energy, dark matter, gamma ray bursts, gravitational collapse, light-years, magnetars, neutron stars, pulsars, quantum mechanics, quasars, superclusters, supernovas, etc.?
.

Can you not comprehend why I have rejected the beliefs of my evangelical father, whose astronomical beliefs are derived from the biblical book of Genesis, written 2,000 years ago, when people KNEW NOTHING, and believed that the sun revolved around the earth?
.

Which really piques my interest in "Ancient Aliens". I don't believe in everything about the speculation, but the evidence presented will BLOW YOUR MIND, if you listen hard, long and honestly.

Watch the Science Channel, in spite of having to endure all the limey-talkers.
.

Which brings me to #4.

On False Beliefs

From Cosmos

Episode - "Unafraid of the Dark" (2014)

1. Question authority.
   -- No idea is true just because someone
      says so.

2. Think for yourself.
   -- Question yourself.

3. Don't believe anything,
      just because you want to.
   -- Believing something doesn't make it so.

4. Test ideas by the evidence gained
   -- from observation and experiment.
   -- If a favorite idea fails a well-designed
      test, it's wrong! Get over it.
   -- Follow the evidence, wherever it leads.
   -- If you have no evidence, reserve
      judgment.

5. Most important rule - you could be
      wrong.

Social Stuff

"I don't want to belong to any club that will accept people like me as a member."

-- Groucho Marx, 1959, to the
Friar's Club of Beverly Hills

Yeah, that's kinda it. I dropped Facebook because I was unable to ban idiots, who insisted upon splattering their conservative politics ON MY PAGE. Not to mention that Zuckerman has proven himself to be a profit-hungry JERK, with no regard for privacy, fairness, or individual sanctity. SCREW Zuck.

     8. Positive Outlook

My Advice to All

Strive for A Positive Outlook!
Attitude makes a HUGE difference.

Do not allow others to bring you down.

We can't change the world,
but we CAN change ourselves.
You can be positive from now on.

Truth, Justice and the American way.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
