Scientific Renaissance

Light travels at over 186,000 miles per hour.
A quantum computer calculates data at the atomic level.

I love science fiction.
Science, physics, chemistry, astrology, etc.

All of these disciplines are taken into account when I sit down to write a new short story or novel. But when you take into consideration what this might mean in the grand scheme of things, to me anyway, is aliens.

I believe that it is extremely arrogant of us to assume that we are the only intelligent life forms in the entire universe; which is very very large and extremely old. What does this imply for those of us who are God's children? If he created us, this world, this galaxy and everything in it... Could he not have created similar versions of us on different planets? Maybe he did, and will grant us with the technology, know how and ability to meet our distant cousins at some point. I only hope that I am alive for the day when humans make contact with extra terrestrials. The opportunity to learn from each other and exchange ideas is not something that should be scoffed at by the masses but something that should be encouraged. As humans living on a dieing rock, that we are killing; we should look forward to the day when we will have the capacity to travel at the speed of light, find the singularity in quatum mechanics and one day colonize our galaxy and other earth like planets. Hopefully when we do reach that phase of evolution, we will treat our next planet better than we have treated this one.
