- Imagine the media covering the second coming of Christ or actual contact made with extraterrestrials. Words can’t describe the schmaltz that would be spontaneously produced.
- Some people shouldn’t be interviewed. Most actors and musicians are mind paralyzingly boring.
- Stop analyzing Snooki. Some things have no reason why they’re liked. Take macaroni and cheese. People like it. That’s it. Next!
- While we’re on the subject of UFO’s (and, yes, we are), why isn’t the subject ever discussed with any degree of maturity. The Vatican gives the notion of extraterrestrial life a degree of legitimacy. As do Stephen Hawking and a host of astrophysicist types. Yet the subject is discussed with mocking derision by an exceedingly ignorant and childish media.
While on the subject of UFO’s, let’s look at the Drake Equation. It estimates the number of detectable extraterrestrial civilizations in the Milky Way galaxy and is used in exobiology and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI). Not to be confused with a settee. (Rimshot.) Frank Drake, Emeritus Professor of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
Even the Vatican acknowledges that the existence of extraterrestrial aliens is not inconsistent with Catholic theology. Well, that’s good to know. (I wonder what his stance on Limbo is.) And to prove my point, here’s a YouTube video. I mean, if it’s on YouTube there’s got to be something to it, right?
And then there’s this incredible presentation of the enormity of the universe in proportion to the known. And you wonder why people smoke dope.
