Gov is Pro “Net Neutrality”. Doesn’t That Alone Make You Suspicious?

Net Neutrality

If the government is actively promoting Net Neutrality legislation, doesn’t that fact alone make you highly suspicious?

“The image of government being full of people on a mission to protect the little guy from predatory corporate behemoths is an illusion fostered by politicians and corporate interests alike.”

I just read this great post on Net Neutrality.  I suggests everybody read it in the face of every growing freedom constraints by our leaders.

If the telecoms are forced to compete in a truly free market, Comcast and Time Warner won’t exist 10 years from now.

Police to Use Google Glass… Against Us?

Google Glass

Enabling video surveillance by police in the form of Google Glass.  Is this really a good idea?

Does it increase public safety, or to further advance the police state?

New Alien Life Claim Far from Convincing, Scientists Say

Alien Life

New Alien Life Claim Far from Convincing, Scientists Say

 

A new study that claims to present evidence of alien life is being met with a healthy dose of skepticism in the scientific community. (Yahoo News)

This weekend I had dinner with a guy who works for NASA studying planetary evolution, with a focus on atmospheric makeup. His current efforts were focused toward Saturn’s moon Titan.

He explained to me that of all the planets and moons we know of, Titan is the most like Earth. The chemical makeup of the atmosphere and surface is close(r) to what we find here on our own planet. He want’s to know if Titan could support life.

Obviously, I followed up with a series of questions.

  • Q: Could humans survive on Titan?
    • A: No, it is -179.2 °C. – Literally everything is frozen. (Among other factors)
  • Q: Have we sent any rovers to retrieve data from the surface.
    • A: Yes, the Huygens probe landed on Titan in 2005. (and there were others before that one)
  • Q: And… did they find any LIFE there?
    • A: Of course not. If they had, you would know. It would be splashed all over every paper and internet screen in the world.

He also made a comment that startled me. He said “I’ve been doing this job for 20+ years. In that time I’ve talked to the same 100 people over and over again about the discoveries we’ve made. What’s the point? The things we’re finding and discussing are not likely to have an impact on anyone in the real world.” The guy studies “planetary evolution” for NASA – and his findings aren’t going to change anybody’s lives. Wow, what an awesome realization. After that kind of a discovery, he now has the chance to refocus his life goals on things that WILL have an impact on people. Hopefully he will do that.

But his responses also serve to further enforce my previous viewpoint. It is unlikely we will ever find life outside our own planetary ecosystem. Mainly because this planet was specifically created with all the uniquely fine-tuned factors needed to support life. The same cannot be said for any other known celestial object.

If we had evolved here at random, a case could possibly be made for evolution occurring elsewhere also. However, since abiogenesis/evolution is highly unrealistic, even in the ideal atmospheric conditions of earth, it is even less likely to be true in more hostile environments.
