Astronomers, Start Thinking Outside Your Own Toxic Brain Atmospheres

C’mon, astronomers and scientists. Give us a break. Just because a planet has what you call a toxic atmosphere of carbon dioxide and a surface temperature of 1,700 doesn’t mean it doesn’t have some kind of life thriving there. It just won’t be your pitiful kind of narrow thinking life.

It was a long-held belief of scientists that life couldn’t exist in places like deep sea vents in super heated water surrounding toxic fume-spewing smokers that break through the deep sea floor, or in frigid Arctic waters.

They were wrong about that; wrong that life couldn’t thrive there; wrong that life couldn’t be born there; and they’re probably just as wrong that there can’t be any extraterrestrial life on planet HD 189733b, a planet with Jupiter-size mass, 63 light-years away from Earth.

They’re as narrow in their thinking as their flat-Earth predecessors and that bloviating idjut Dennis Prager, who several years ago interviewed and equally narrow thinker from Arizona on his radio show, who agreed with Prager that out of billions and billions of galaxies in the universe, there couldn’t possibly be any life anywhere except here on Earth.

Neither of them would even admit the possibility of other solar systems with planets. Talk about taking flat-Eartherism arrogance to the max.

Scientists looking for extraterrestrial life -- intelligent or otherwise -- through their powerful telescopes and atmosphere analyzing equipment better start thinking outside the box.

It's time for them to open their minds to limitless possibilities.

It’s a sure bet that life exists in unimagined forms that are neither water- nor carbon-based as we are.

Somewhere in this vast universe are Star Trekkian silicon-based Hortas waiting to bite them in the ass.

We have life here; we have an abundance of life, but -- dogs excluded -- we’re still looking for a life form that exhibits any signs of intelligence, whatsoever.
