Now it may sound crazy but in my opinion the human race is the perfect robots that we could never build. You send two, self aware humans to a planet you want to inhabit and they will reproduce without any influence from who sent them as well as having the ability to evolve and adapt to their needs. I believe that we are the offspring of another colony that sent us, or people like us here thousands of years ago to evolve and to continue the legacy of their colony. I mean seriously we are so undeniably engineered its scary. Our brains are like computers that we can't build, we will certainly try, but are yet to be successful. I just think that if we wanted to colonize a new planet with little to no input from the people on earth that we couldn't figure out and build a better system than what we have on this planet now. We can reproduce on a huge quantity with hardly any resources, we can build ourselves and that is the key to colonizing any habitat IMO. just something I think about, I don't think aliens will be like us, I think we are like them. At least the ones that are responsible for intelligent life on earth.
      Sounds a lot like the Adam and Eve biblical sotry, not trying to get biblical or forcing my beliefs, but from what I've read in there it mentions that we where made in his form. So I do beleive that there is a more advance race that looks like us, but more advanced. Time travel somehow was show to the aposotle john, I don't know if that was supernatural, but you can't help but wonder about time travel since he saw many hundreds of years into the future. I've always wondered about all the stuff in Revelations, it was all shocking to read when I was younger.

      I also used to think when I was younger about if there was a previous race of humans created before our current race, but on the same planet. The reason I thought this was becasue of what I had read in genesis that the earth was without form. So I always thought that our earth was once different than it it today at one time, but somehow it was all destroyed or just died off since all planets die eventually.

      Seriously, you guys think it's possible to build a civilization from two people?

      LOL so true. need a few hundred or thousand for a healthy gene pool.

      creation stories amaze me. It's hard to believe that people actually think they are true. They are so completely crazy it's hard to fathom.

      Lately I've been getting back to my old self thinking about death and life after, if there is any such thing. Do you think we'll ever come back to this planet or another Earth and have the same life? Life is cruel, your born and then you die, and then what? Everything you have loved and owned will be gone. I was quite scared of dying for a few years, it has gone away for awhile but now its coming back again.

      We are all basic biological beings. We are born, we live, we die, the earth reclaims us. That's all there is. Enjoy life now.

      No but that also wasn't the point of what I was saying. The number is irrelevant IMO. I was just using it as a point of reference. Besides it was just a thought.

      I came to terms a decade ago that there is no life after death. It's true, after you die, everything is gone, for the rest of eternity.

      IMO that's what makes life so beautiful. We are a freak of nature and only get one shot.

      Another thing I think about is just how insignificant we really are in the grand scheme of things... I look around the world and see how petty everyone is. People fight about the dumbest things. And in the end, it's for nothing.

      I sincerely do not believe that death is the end of life. Everything is a cycle.

      These explanations make me want to quit my job, take my savings and travel with not a care in the world.

      seriously.

      the number is COMPLETELY relevant.


      if you start with 2, that means the next round of offspring MUST be as a result of either father/daughter, or brother/sister copulating.


      that's incest.

      and it leads to genetic deformities.



      creationists don't see a problem with this?

      I believe that passes on into the universe. Maybe to another person, maybe to another life form. But I don't think the intangibles of being human and conscious just simply disappear when the vessel dies.
