@IMAN Multiple worlds with inhabitants is part of the Latter-day
Saint doctrine. It seems perfectly logical to me that there would be more than
one 'Earth' in the Universe. It boggles the mind to think what/who might be out
lol, and if there is 'life' there as we know it, let's spend a few quadrillion
bucks, send these adventurers there, (comfortably out of our hair for good), so
we can spend whats left taking care of our own sweet turf. mind you, our current
turf is tested and approved for daily use. it hasn't turned on us yet, but it
seems the air is getting dirty and the water is getting muddied, not to mention
the other creatures we were supposed to be caretakers of (they seem to be going
extinct faster than ice melts).
Confirmation of life on another planet might cause serious consternation in some
people. It would be interesting to see if/how the various religions of the world
would "spin" it.
Well if we think we are the only life in this vast universe then we as
earthlings are really narcisistic............ of course there is life out there
but sometimes I wonder if there is any humanity here on this planet........
It would be fascinating to be able to see these planets close up and determine
if there is life or not. With the vastness of the universe, the absence of
life, other than on Earth, would be extremely surprising to me. I expect that
there's probably life out there besides our own planet.
