Life on other planets?

Posted: 02:08 PM ET

Scientists working with the Hubble Space Telescope have identified large quantities of the organic chemical methane as well as water on a planet orbiting a distant star.

Now that in-and-of-itself is not proof that life exists there. In fact, researchers say it almost certainly DOESN'T because the planet is orbiting very close to its "sun" and it therefore is much too hot (1700 degrees Fahrenheit) to support life.

But the new findings, published in this week's edition of the journal "Nature," do show that orbiting telescopes like Hubble and it's yet-to-be-launched successor called the James Webb Space Telescope can detect organic chemicals on far-off worlds. And on some of those (one in a thousand? million? billion?) the conditions may be right to support life.

Will we ever find one? Impossible to say. But the tools are there to begin the search.

The Jupiter-sized planet in question is called HD189733b, and is orbiting a star about 63 light years away from our solar system in the constellation Vulpecula.

Astronomers have found nearly 300 of these so-called "extrasolar" planets since the first one was confirmed in 1995. NASA has drawn up plans for space-based telescopes like the Terrestrial Planet Finder and the Space Interferometry Mission to specifically search for Earth-like planets outside our solar system. At this point, both of those programs have been postponed indefinitely due to budget issues.

if god exist...why he give an idea that exist an aliens???why he hidde from us???and tell me this...why every day 50 000 and more little kids is daying for food???in the Bible god with miracle create food...The religion it is only a big lie...the religion is invented by the people...we are not the first civilization in this planet...there are more in the past...and will have in the future...god dose not exist...and in a miliard galaxys i believe that exist life on other planets...we are not alone...contac with me on: vlatkomrsen@hotmail.com if you have anything to say...

Can we be so narrow minded as to think that with all that universe, we are alone..come on people. There has to be life somewhere else in the vastness of space. We are here and it is possible..


Allen Arledge   March 23rd, 2008 3:01 am ET

Oh, boy, here we go again with the "God this, god that" people. Well, ya know, the bible didn't say anything about General Relativity, North America, or the atomic weight of carbon. Does that mean they don't exist? Also missing is any reference to Uranus, other galaxies and planetary systems, black holes, neutron stars, DNA, bacteria, prions, or cosmic rays; so do they count? Of course life exists elsewhere-to think otherwise is arrogance that is truly cosmic in scale. Who in their right mind could even suggest that this entire Universe is here only for us? Oh, yeah; "those" people...


God   March 23rd, 2008 10:30 am ET

Hey everyone, just to clarify a few things you guys are throwing around about my plans:

1. Are you really arrogant and naive enough to think I created the heavens and the earth, and nothing else? Come on, gimme a break.

2. Those great stories in the bible? Yeah, stories, life lessons. Get a grip, honestly.

3. Why do you think I gave you all free will? You don't HAVE to believe in me for me to exist. Aren't I all about forgiveness and whatnot?

So to end, you guys take yourselves to seriously. I mean, you don't honestly believe that out of the literally TRILLIONS of stars and planets that are out there that I wouldn't sprinkle anything else out there? Look where humanity came from, and look where we are now.

Well, I'll see you on the other side,

God

The reason i have 9 guns in my house. Is not for terrorists...but the Christain radicals are trying to take over the nation. I truly worry when the "thought police" will come to my door and take my children because I'm not teaching them "the Word of God".

Research and Reason over Ignorance and Superstition.


Tachyons   March 23rd, 2008 4:27 pm ET

When one lives in a box, that is their universe. He/she can not comprehend outside of it. Even those who have beautifully decorated boxes...they are still boxes. Living outside the box can be scary and may seem insecure at times, but to those truly brave ones, the exploration becomes the reward. To the Christian naysayers, first dinosaur bones were planted by God...right. Next, the earth is only 10,000 years old...how much evidence does one need to see this is not the case. Now, there is no life beyond earth??, give it up already and go back to your box. Best wishes to all!


Tachyons   March 23rd, 2008 4:45 pm ET

One more thing about money, the 2007 US military budget was around $440-Billion. The NASA budget 1/20th at around $20 billion. Run the numbers 440B/200M-taxpayers = $2,200/taxpayer. 20B/200M-taxpayers = $100/taxpayer. Hummm, think all where learning about the universe is worth $8 bucks a month don't you think??


Mr. Spock   March 23rd, 2008 11:03 pm ET

What is really frustrating is that if we find life in another star system, we will only be able to speculate and conjecture about it, since there are no means of physically traversing these vast distances to investigate. Even Alpha Centauri would take more than 10, 000 years to reach with our fastest spacecraft.

A MUST READ THEORY

hey hey thought I would weigh in. Here is a theory I came up with recently. Maybe there isnt life on other planets. I used to think there was,infact I still do, but I did think of a theroy that could contracdict it.

Maybe we are the only ones because we are so lucky to have a planet on the cusp of the galaxy. We dont have to worry about merging systems or gravity pulling our solar system apart. Other planets naturally get sucked into the biggest planet (with the biggest gravatational pull), so solar systems, stars, and planted are always smashing into eachother. Life takes a long long long time to come together. The exact conditions, distance from the star etc. Maybe just maybe the other planets capable of bearing life for a short window of time didnt make it long enough for evolution to run its course. Maybe the planet was hit with a meteor or the gravity theory and there wasnt enough time for the civilization or life forms to develop the technology to save themselves.

I think its a viable theory, after reading up on it, if were'nt located were we are, earth would have been done along time ago, and we would have never existed.


Michael   March 24th, 2008 6:45 pm ET

I don't care what ANYBODY says. I've seen two UFO's in my life and KNOW they are real and not from this planet. I don't know where they are from, but it's not HERE.
And, I believe in a supreme creator. He created all, including the aliens.


roger   March 24th, 2008 7:20 pm ET

You've ovbiously misread the bible. Don't confuse allegory (of which the bible is full of) with fact.
The authors of the bible (even if he/they were divine) were not concerned with life elsewhere, they were discussing life on this planet.
The bible is a guidebook for humanity-how to live, prosper, and behave
on this planet. It never expressly states that we are the only beings in the universe.
I would suggest you learn to read between the lines when studying the bible, not take the whole thing literally.


Sharon   March 25th, 2008 11:47 am ET

telecom 68 and chris you are both obviously theo-centric. Ever talked to a Seventh Day Adventist? They will tell you there are a trillion worlds inhabited. The only thing supposedly unique about the one you're walking on is that this is the supposed Christ's home world so its got a bit better rank among the "worlds" of the universe. The bible itself says Earth will be exalted above all others. Back to your reading lessons.

And don't be so sure there really is a "God."

A former Christian turned Buddhist. Got tired of the Christian hate.


Frank   March 25th, 2008 1:01 pm ET

I will not question religion. The fact is that there are so many planets in the universe and thus with an extremely probablility that there is more life out there. The actual question is if our planet was formed, why can't others do the same thing. The problem is, religious beliefs such as Telecom 68's comment "Don’t waste our money or your time as there are no answers to ourter space" especially for someone who spelled incorrectly, would attempt to interrupt or get in the way of scientific research. Faith is faith and fact is fact, do not judge others upon their faith, but then again do not judge fact based upon faith.

-Taking upon the facts of god and quickly brushing the arguement aside shows that one must have fear? or hesitation upon such said subject.

To fully understand, one must take stands upon both sides. But such people as Telecom 68 will never understand. Ever, and thats fact.


Frank   March 25th, 2008 1:15 pm ET

Commenting upon such said person (Not holy/ divine figure)
"God" that made a comment on [March 23rd, 2008 10:30 am ET]

When Gallileo stated that the Earth is not the center of the universe, he was sentenced to life in house prison (or however you call it). Roughly 200 years later, they apologized after there was solid proof that the universe did not revolve around the Earth. Why "God" did you put this man in his house for the rest of his life, also taking the light from his eyes? (He became blind shortly after his imprisonent)

My second point i'd like to add:

Scientific research, it's worth it. Why? Religion answers many questions, but how about why are there so many stars? Why are there so many other planets?

Research as it may seem answers these questions relatively well. I'm sure it's much better than sitting next to a desk and reading a book that is based upon celestrial/divine aspects that "figuratively" exist in the Earths upper atmosphere.

If it wasn't for such scientific research, i'm pretty sure that a lot more people would be tan these days. Why? Cause people would think that the sun was a god and would bow/kneel/grovel/pray before the sun, not the god. It's a big world, the teachings of Christianity isn't everywhere, or at least didn't start everywhere.

Once again, I shall not question religion, but I will only ask that such people who do not understand the purpose and significance of scientific research to step aside. Or just stop posting upon open forums online.


WS   March 25th, 2008 3:52 pm ET

Why research and explore our universe? Well scientists from different countries get along just fine... unlike the politicians...


Natka   March 25th, 2008 4:51 pm ET

Greg Akers

u are wrong the Bible contains NOT just storeies, it containes history. I want to tell you a good new. The earth will not last long.. God will come for His people, so u better be ready for His jugment.


Natka   March 25th, 2008 4:57 pm ET

Vlatko
Good question..Why every day 50 000 and more little kids is daying for food??? it is showing the the evil things does exist.


Michael   March 25th, 2008 5:34 pm ET

1700 degrees? So you mean, like here in about four more years?


Vlatko Mrsen   March 26th, 2008 3:41 pm ET

don`t exist any god and any davil...we are liaing our selfs 2000 years that god exist...where is it?give me a photo from him...?in every "GOD HOUSE" it is a diffrent picture from him...the planet Earth has a possibilites to have a life form like animals people...we just have a "more brain" we are intellegent people...sorry for my English...in this universe has a more planets that exist life on it...maybe not intellegent maybe intellegent...but im sure that exist...and we are not childrens of god...we are childrens of mother nature...again sorry for my english...


Mr. Spock   March 27th, 2008 1:23 am ET

How this blog ever got turned into a God/Creation discussion, I'll never know, but maybe we should all re-read the entire article again, and look at this from a purely scientific point of view! Is there life out there, yes, but beyond our Solar System, we probably won't know for a thousand years or never if we destroy the human race before then.


Donald   March 27th, 2008 5:23 am ET

I've re-read the article as you suggested Mr. Spock. The Hubble has detected water and Methane on a distant planet that orbits it's sun very closly.
At 1700 degrees F. the water would be vapor. Perhaps they're wrong about the distant between the two.
Perhaps the water evaporates early in the day then condenses and liquifies over night. Can life exist under these conditons? 'Yes!
There are shrimp in the desert southwest that dry up and appear dead until rain water fills whatever depression they are in,then they re-hydrate and thrive for a little while at least until the water evaporates again. If it can happen here it can happen there.
Isn't methane a by-product of decaying organic matter? If so then it's very presence would suggest that at least alge could exist. Perhaps there are some sort of shrimp like creatures that eat alge on the planet. Not very advanced but life none the less.


Donald   March 27th, 2008 5:40 am ET

According to the artical astronomers have found about 300 planets in 13 years, thats 23 new worlds a year. With the billions of suns and extra-solar plants out there we need to launch a fleet of space telescopes to even scratch the surface in our search. But if they can prove that the planet in the article has life then maybe life in space is much more common than we think it is.1 in 300 are pretty good odds when you look at the vastness of space or maybe they just lucky on this one.


Mr. Spock   March 28th, 2008 4:37 am ET

Donald, well said, but understand this, we "might" be able to detect proof of life though spectroscopy of a planet's atmosphere, but it will be many hundreds of years before we can see for ourselves either robotic or manned, warp drive I'm afraid will not happen in the 23rd century, and space is a big BIG place. Right now it would take 10,000 years to get to Alpha Centauri. Yes I do believe life is out there, we just can't prove it, only speculate...and dream.


chantelle   April 11th, 2008 5:20 pm ET

this is so cool! because i will able to see new planets that we have not heared before and i want to name one. image a planet is like the ones in dragon ball z now that will be fun!


Kathy Watson   April 13th, 2008 12:31 pm ET

How do you know god really exists?
Bacteria and micro-organisms have been found that shows something?


jz   April 20th, 2008 10:36 am ET

obviously these people are stupid. and there brains havent evolved yet to understand religion doesnt explain crap anymore. OBVISOULY THERE IS LIFE ON EARTH THERE IS LIFE ON OTHER PLANETS. EVERYTHING IN THIS UNI VERSE IS A CYCLE. and aliens have already crashed on earth made contact wtih our gov't and others. you people are simple minded. but its ok everyting will change in teh next 20 years when people find out oh there really is life on other planets wow. religion isnt shit..CUZ GOD ISNT REAL IF U BELIEVE IN GOD. U MIGHT AS WEL BELIEVE IN TEH TOOTH FAIRY OR SNATA CLAUSE


tasha   April 23rd, 2008 7:21 am ET

why do people WANT to find life on other planets? – like how would it help us? xx


rebecca   May 20th, 2008 7:07 pm ET

how do you know that all the stuff you wrote is true? have you ever visited a planet before?and do you like to talk about planets are you comfortable talking about this topic that you are doing has it effected you in any way oh i forgot a question what planet is your favorite mine is Pluto but that isn't a planet any more it's a dwarf planet so maybe i would pick Venus.


KING MENACE   May 28th, 2008 7:48 pm ET

SO U MEAN TO TELL ME ITS A BUDGET THING GOOD COVER UP SEE SOLAR SYSTEMS ARE LIGHT YEARS AWAY BUT BYE MOVING FAST THRU THIS SPACE WE CALL SPACE WILL CAUSE A MOTION CALLED TIME TRAVEL WICH MEANS IN A MILLION BILLION YEARS LATER A FORM OF LIFE WILL LIVE DUE TO STABLER CONDITIONS THREW TIME THREW TIME TRAVEL THEN THEREFOR IF SUCH MACHINES HAVE BEN BUILD DOES THE CREW GO OLD AT RAPID SPEEDS OR DO THEY REACH A FUTURE STATE OF SPACE WERE EXISTINCE IS NOT A MYTH BUT AN REALITY.... BUILD A METERIAL STRONG ENUFF TO TRAVEL AT SPEEDS THAT WILL GENARATE A HEAT MOTION THIS POWERFUL AND YOU SHALL HAVE YOUR INDIANA JONES...LOL...km

The manual to fix a computer lies in the instruction booklet it comes with – the Creator of the computer has all the answers right?

The paintings that we view in museums, some of those at times that dont make sense can be explained by the painter – the Creator of the painting knows what it means right?

A building, any building has blueprints of its initial design – the creator of that building knows of all the properties that makes it stand right?

Humans, living beings on earth have a maker who is God -God's instruction manual for life is the Holy Bible – in Genesis it doesnt say God made Adam and eve and big oval headed creatures with almond eyes.

How else can we know hoe to function wohtout instructions from the maker Himself?

Have you ever stopped to think that all these beautiful stars and planets exist – JUST to give glory to the living God.

Psalm 33:6 says: By the word of the LORD were the heavens made,
their starry host by the breath of his mouth.

That is explanation enough as to why these stars exist – God made the universe by His breath – maybe you should try asking Him why He made it so.

I am blown away by how big the universe is – even more so at the greatness of God that He holds it all in the palm of his hand... and He truly does care about us.

The funny thing is, we all argue this and that, theres no God, yes theres a God, but one day the world will see what is really the truth there is no denying that for sure.

I am priviliged to be called to know the big God of all the universe and that he is mindful of little dots liek us – mindful to save us, not to destroy us – God oesnt show us the judgement due to us because of our terrible sin, instead he shows unmerited favour – grace and mercy.

I cant wait to dwell with Him in heaven and experince first hand the majestic power of the One who made all these beautiful beautiful stars.


Orbit   June 27th, 2008 12:57 am ET

Life in other planets may exist. We do not know as of today, but the possibility is still there. Humans currently do not know the answers to many things, but humans keep on striving for change. There are lots of planets in the universe that have not been discovered. These planets may be able to support some sort of life. The life may not be like that of planet Earth’s, but that possibility should not be ruled out either.

In order to find life, or for life to find us, we will need to advance our technology. Placing telescopes in other planets may help us to find out more answers, and create more questions. There is no shame in wanting to explore the universe and there is no shame in choosing to believe that God limited his life creations to that of Earth.

From a religious point of view, life on Earth is the only life God created. The stars, moon, are required for survival. The stars have helped create time and guidance for our ancestors. The stars and moon help light the night, and the sun keeps us warm. Without the universe Earth could not survive. However this is only but a point of view and we should be able to embrace and respect other’s beliefs.

Life on other planets could create new resources for us, but it could also create a lot of problems. If this life form came in the form of a superior living form, we would be subject to slavery. The chain of command is evident in every living form.

The universe is big and life may be able to survive in distant planets. The universe can also be an entire body. A body has a heart and a mind, but it can also hold a soul. A soul cannot be defined or identified leaving for the universe to be a playground for discoveries. Life is not black and white, there are lots of colors to be seen.


Singh   August 27th, 2008 12:17 am ET

I agree with scientist because, at once phrophet like Nanak said in his book guru granth that there are thousad of sons and thousand of earths there are thousands of stars. As far as he was able to see the creator is very powerful and just one earth is not end of the universe. there are many solar systems many earths and many sons. Nanak philosphy is only four hundred year old. I am pretty shure that if he knew about this four hundred year ago and compare to scientist of today. the race is on. the question is who will find each other first. it may be the other planets life all ready know about us. I belive in Nanak very strongley and after analyzing his philosphy i can say that there is life on other planets. yet we have to wait who will find it first. Is it scientist on erath or scientist of unknown planets with life like us will find us first. If somone wants to know about it more find the Guru Granth and look for Guru Nanak philosphy see why would he said it.


Jay   September 15th, 2008 11:31 pm ET

My only comment – we may find something we'd wish we hadn't.....I believe we should just leave things be and worry about our well being with dealings of war, economy, natural disasters, yadda, yadda, yadda.....we are going to one day wish we hadn't opened "Pandora's Box".


superqt   September 16th, 2008 9:38 pm ET

Seriously, what does religion have to do with this?!! This is science, not religion! I wish everyone would just talk about the article, not what effect their religion has on it! If you want to post a comment, do it about your view, not what your religion makes you think!


mark   October 2nd, 2008 1:36 pm ET

people listen, there is life elsewhere in the cosmos, there are way too many reports of people claiming to be abducted by beings from other star systems, and too many reports of flying objects that breaks the laws of physics not all reports are true but u know some are. there have been reports of children seeing beings themselves REMEMBER we as humans thought that the earth was flat and not round. come on people be real with yourselves, but what do i know huh? but we do need to worry about our own world first before thinking of any other race of beings in the cosmos. we hate each other because of race and because of religion and we kill each other over stupid stuff. i bet u there is some alien race out there saying: the humans are too stupid and crazy to deal with. our minds are closed to any possibilities and we are selfish and dont wont to help each other.this is for All u skeptic people out there there will come a day when some alien race will reveal themselves to us and we will be shocked. every one do ur own research on ufos and aliens and government conspiracies and u will start putting the puzzle together. one more thing when i do research i keep hearing people say that the alien beings telling them to keep earth in good shape because the ozone layer and fossil fuels are destroying our atmosphere.


Jairo   October 22nd, 2008 9:03 pm ET

Look at Mars, the pictures I have seen are amazing as it shows the possible life that is there. I see trees, buildings, apes, horses,
and other unusual things that provide proof of a past civilization on Mars and a possible current one. NASA doesn't even show the true color of the Martian skies which is blue like ours. They airbrush the pictures and do not want mankind to know about other life forms for there would be panic. Some will doubt that there is no plants or anything on Mars but seeing is believing. I even saw a Sphinx much in appearance to the one in Egypt. Go to youtube.com and look it up.


Sean   November 15th, 2008 7:24 am ET

This is to go with the "thinking outside the box" comment made earlier...

There is stuff out there, in the universe, that we cant even comprehend! Heck.... who knows, tomorrow, they (Nasa) might stumble upon a way to use things like Einstein's theory of "wormholes" in outter space to radically increase space travel. (http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/space/deepspace/wormholes/index.shtml). This would change everything, and anything could be possible after that.

We all have our own point of view, but c'mon.... alone in the universe? No insults intended... but that's just plain IGNORANT! We are all products of our upbringing. Our belief systems are ingrained from billions of years of humanity. Don't try and tell people that their opinions are wrong because of some random article that you read on the internet on a boring Sunday afternoon. WE THINK WHAT WE'VE BEEN TOLD AND HAVE EXPERIENCED IN OUR LIVES!!!

I don't know the answer to the question in this blog... "Life on other planets?"... but I do have my beliefs from MY OWN personal experiences!!! I wouldn't dare try and tell you you were wrong for having your own theories. I happen to thing the universe is waaaaaaay too big to just support 1 form of life. There could be trillions of different forms out there!

Bottom line...If there's life on other planets, we'll find it.... Or maybe not!

humayun   January 12th, 2009 10:08 am ET

is ther life on other planet on our solare system?


humayun   January 12th, 2009 10:09 am ET

) I am researching if there life on other planet in our solar system


ChriSci   July 14th, 2009 7:42 pm ET

I don't believe it is impossible for there to be life – even sentient beings out there somewhere in the vast universe. Just because the Bible doesn't mention it doesn't mean it can't be (there are many things not mentioned in the Bible – probably because they aren't essential to the main message). IF there is life out there (and I'm not saying I believe there is), perhaps we'll not ever be able to reach each other given the great amount of time that travel would involve therefore God did not think it necessary to give us that information. There is a lot that we don't know\wouldn't be able to comprehend so it isn't ridiculous to see that as a possibility. I think it's interesting to ponder that as a possibility and keep reaching...knowing that even if we never have an answer "the ride" is interesting and the farther we see – and go – the more we have to feel wonder and awe at the vastness and beauty of everything He created. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RKMw1ndl-EY


michael   October 12th, 2009 12:07 pm ET

Life is out there i know it. we will find it one day but it will not be untill we earned the right we need to put alot of our violant ways behind us. If we do find life on another planet i assume that our world's government will try to destroy it before making contact. I am a man of science and religon but the bible stays mute to this subject this could be on of many things that god does not want us to know until we are ready. (im not sure if everything is spelled right, well pretty sure there are mistakes.)


Mike   December 4th, 2009 4:28 am ET

If your real lucky maybe you will live 115 years.The universe is billions of years old already and ready for billions more it has Trillions of stars that can take millions of years to reach at 186,000 miles Per second!! Unfortunately its hard for many to grasp the numbers .. As many stars as there are grains of sand on earth.
To get to even our closest star right now would take 4 light years. Life is Teaming in the milky way. Christopher Columbus would tell you.


Lilly F. May   January 23rd, 2010 3:59 am ET

I decided to look up the size of the sun, Oh! what I found was what the Bible has told us in Job: 1: 6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present (themselves plural word) before the Lord, and satan came also among them. These sons represent other worlds, they never sinned satan can't temp them. We were the only planet that sinned. Isn't it wonderful that God is starting to open up the heavens called the solor system.
I believed before, but now I know God's word is true the word of God will become a reality as we read the Bible too.
Thanks to those, who try to explore the planets, and relate what they find in the solor system.


Lilly F. May   January 24th, 2010 2:53 am ET

I hope I didn't speak out of turn with my philosophy on Job 1: 6 where the Lord is talking to satan it's in the Bible.

In the book of Job 26: 7 Job, over thirty-five centuries ago, spoke by inspiration what the revelations of science are now forcing us to acknowledge. He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.

"Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things."

Isaiah40: 26


Tracy Marken   January 29th, 2010 2:56 pm ET

Ofcourse there is life on other planets. I think whomever said there wasn't is very closed minded. Out of all the planets in space, we are the only one with life,don't think so, I aint buying it.Ok, this is gonna sound crazy, i'm prepared to be whaled by sceptical comments. The government doesn't want us to know of anything other than what they tell us. There is most definatley life on other planets. Most of us originated from somewhere else. Wrap your minds around this,In the bible Jesus said, his kingdom was not of this world. I love Jesus with all my heart. I think that extra terrestrials, angels, God and other supernatural activities and beings are all tied together somehow, Maybe all opf these subjects were split apart to confuse everyone into thinking that they were all seperate things so our minds would drown in confusion and just decide not to believe in anything. That way, we would be easier to be controlled and only believe in the things we could see and do everyday. So called normal things. Normal is just a cover up. When someone starts to figure things out, they are called crazy, or manic or something. I think instead of picking one thing to believe in; we need to believe in the possibility of everything. Then chose whether you a member of the dark or light. Good or evil.I believe in God.I believe in the rapture, I also know Heaven is not on this Earth. I believe in astral plains and ghosts and all of the supernatural beings and other dimensions. I think though it all works together like a big puzzle somehow. Think about it folks. Let me know what ya think. I'd love to elaborate if anyone wants to talk about it. My email address is tracy.angelstorm.marken42@gmail.com. And i promise I'm not a teenager with a bunch of wild ideas. I'm a 33 year old woman who has experienced some pretty supernatural happenings, and witnessed some otherwise unexplainable incidents. So anyone who feels up to sharing, please do so.

I can't believe what I read that so many unbelievers, speak that there is no God. Look into the heavens with your high powered telescopes.
All those stars who put them there? You can travel just so far up,and you need oxygen.
The other worlds are wrapped in atmosphere, for one look through the telescope reveals this chemical mixture which is so vital to sutain life.
The meaning of atmosphere the gaseous mass surrounding any star, planet.
Who is behind all the planets? Who created them? God of course!! It just staggers my mind that there is nothing he can't do. And so much more, when we find out there is even more for us mortals to discover.
Astronomers will keep looking into the heavens seaching for clues to the secret of God's great universe.

Scientists say that HD189733b cant support life but aren't we forgetting about how amazing evolution is. do we still think that humanity is the end all be all for life? i think if there is a planet like HD189733b out there than evolution wold make up for the fact that its sun is to close. wake up earth and its inhabitants art the center of the universe. and as for god and the bible. the bible was written for humans on earth sure he didn't say there was life out there but he didn't say there wasn't ether.
