As long as it’s not our evil twin. What’s in Washington is bad enough.

Earth size planet(s) in the habitable zone around a star? I’ll give it 4 years from now.

I might be interested as long as they aren’t some sort of breeding ground (a la “To Serve Man” - Twilight episode) or if they don’t have the same Obama-Pelosi-Reid cast of characters in their best and most capitalist country...
Then we need a way to get there. I’d go if the journey didn’t involve time dilation because of sublight speeds.

Earth like, shmearth like. I’m waiting for them to find a planet shaped just like Alfred E. Newman’s head.
Given the number of planets out there, it is certain that one exists.

(If you are left DO NOT take the mark of the beast and be damned forever.)
Great analogy. That’s the same logic that says that there must be another “earth twin”, or thousands or millions of them, and that some contain intelligent life.
However, given the [increasing] numbers of factors necessary to make life here possible, the “odds” greatly diminish, even given the numbers of estimated stars in our galaxy and beyond.

(The difference between a humanist and a Satanist is that the latter knows who he's working for.)
Exactly. I’m glad someone picked up on the analogy.
