Whatever core you'd like to call it, it still has some ground to stand on, though not much.

Probably, it would certainly be nice though. With the exponential progression of the scientific community we might see the first person leave the solar system, but it's unlikely. It's a nice thought though.

America suffers from economic troubles as well, we've been in trouble for quite some time. Every militaristic based culture has fallen because they can't work where as cultures that lose their empire and switch to a more scientific culture often thrive (i.e England, Japan, Ireland, Germany, etc) mainly because they don't have to go picking a fight with every other country to try to justify their spending. When you do this you're not only financially crippling your economy you're just eventually run into the next big fighter and lose everything. We already rely on fighting people to survive, if we keep on doing this time is just going to keep ticking towards inevitable chaos.

you could test it. earliest assumptions about the round earth theory were made using 2 sticks a sheet of paper a pen and a good math head.

faster than light travel is scientifically considered impossible. and the star trek theory is just science fiction.


best bet for interstellar travelling we have. is wormholes. it has already been proven in small scale that somethings CAN "move" faster than light by "folding space" ofcourse even these materials managed to outbeat light to the final destination by fraction of a second so its not viable to use it in further speculations of travel

quite frankly using wooden sticks is one way to incapacitate a tank without destroying it... and most warrior cultures didnt change until they met a warrior culture that managed to beat them up (japan <america china<europe most early south american cultures<europe europe<itself

At the time cell phones, video communication, space travel, and hyposprays. It's all science fiction until it becomes a reality. Most things in start trek are the truest of science fiction because although it is fiction, it has a real basis in science.

I fully agree with you there, wormholes are likely to be out best bet in FTL travel, but they're rather unreliable as of now. Hopefully we'll find a way to detect the location and destination or, if we're being bold, create our own. Hopefully in my lifetime, I'd love to see that.

Wooden sticks plural, sure, but a single slightly sharpened wooden stick? Good luck. But it's only a metaphor. My point being that any species that makes a craft strong enough to survive the harsh, ruthlessness of space radiation, gravity wells, and huge clusterfucks of asteroids plinking against the hull (Any one of which could mean certain doom for everyone on board if they were to breach it) wouldn't even flinch against a direct nuclear bomb hit. They'd probably also have an easy method of killing all life on earth with the flip of a switch. Also, all those civilizations have one thing in common. They chose to throw everything in to fighting and nothing into science so that when someone stronger came along they had nothing else and collapsed. Also, that kind of proves my point with the alien thing, they'd be stronger so we'd fall and have nothing left.

i know. nothing is written in stone. but there is a difference in saying "maybe earth is round" than saying "after extensive research i have come to the conclusion that earth is round"

yeah and all those was possible by the laws of science. travelling faster than light is not possible according to science. our best bet is wormholes but even that is just a theory at the moment. america is a warrior culture based civilization. military is a lot more important to them than other fields of science.or preserving our species.besides. if there ever comes a moment when hostile alien lifeforms attacks earth, then you will be happy that mericans had developed all that military tech.

In your example there's a way of seeing that the earth is round, there is research to be done and ways of testing it whereas silicone based life can only be a theory, much like the theory of Mars having a core made of iron. We don't know this for a fact, but it's widely believed because of general knowledge of planets and what they could be made of.

Theoretically you can't move faster than light, but Star Trek actually had a very interesting idea on warp tech that had their engines create large gravity wells infront and behind their ships that caused the ship to be both pulled and launched by sheer gravimetric forces (which have been known to accelerate objects to the speed of light and possibly further by forces of black holes) it's a very neat idea since it bypasses the limitations of mass needing more and more energy to move faster the closer to light speed you get. It's a novel idea, but currently only an idea. I'm sure eventually we'll make something that would let you (at least technically) move as fast or faster than light.
America may be a warrior culture, but it's killing us in the end. We're slowly dying because of it just as every warrior culture before us which is why we need to progress into something that can survive. We need science more than ever now. And if there were a alien race that was capable of travelling to us, our weapons would be as pointless as a sharp stick is against a M1-A2 abrams tank.

the never meeting an alien species comes from the fact that we have no way of travelling great distances as of yet. even to the nearest place that could hold life is like what? couple of hundreds of years from us.


and as for those links. they all talk about maybes and ifs and possibly.

Of course they do, they're scientific, to say an absolute on theory would be absurd since we can generally believe it's very possible, but it might now be. That's what science is.

This is true, we currently have no way of travelling great distances. and 100 years ago we had no way of getting from New York to Russia without it being a month long journey, today I can do that in about 10 hours. 20 years ago to say that I could access all of the information on earth from a box in my pocket would put me in a nuthouse, 5 years ago we would say that Will Smith could make nothing wrong but then Jaden Smith came along. Things evolve and change rapidly. The scientific community advances by the hour with great leaps every few years. In another 20 years time we could have invented a lightspeed technology or even find a way to detect worm holes and where they lead. Either way distance isn't an issue, technology is and we're wroking on it daily Though we could be progressing a lot further if NASA's budget wasn't such a joke. Honestly, why spend more on a military that then next 25 countries COMBINED but only pennies on a service that actually advances out species and will preserve our species when America decides to nuke everyhting?!

that is why i told you to search occams razor. its a philosophical ..idea or somethign? i dont know what they call it. but basically the idea that has less "assumptions" is the one more likely to be correct. your basis that there might be life that defies everything that our science has proven right or wrong. has a lot more assumptions than mine that says "the chances for life to be born on a planet is slim" which has less assumptions about things.


and it also could be that in the place where there should be civilizations is now a smoldering ruins of whatever glorious race there was in the past. or maybe that the planet which is capable of holding life has yet developed to the point that it is able to hold complex life forms.


i do not deal in extremes. the chances are we are alone. or there might be other beings out there.



most likely we will never meet them.
User avatar #164 - trimageryan (02/20/2015) [-]
I'm well aware of occams razor (I believe it's considered a problem solving logic or something similar) but I don't believe it applies here since you keep claiming what I say is against science when modern science backs it (Sources: www.airspacemag.com/daily-planet/is-silicon-based-life-possible-5120513/?no-ist , www.daviddarling.info/encyclopedia/S/siliconlife.html , www.dailygalaxy.com/my_weblog/2011/05/stephen-hawking-on-non-carbon-based-alien-life.html most of which feature prominent scientific minds like Hakwing and Segar and the researchers from MIT) so I'm still not sure where you're getting "going against everything we know in science". I'm not making a lot of assumptions at all, I'm stating statistical facts.

There's just as good of odds that said civilization is thriving and dying, I see no reason to use this as a way of saying that we'll probably never meet anther intelligent life.

To say we'll most likely never meet them seems to be a pretty extreme theory to me.

yeah and all those was possible by the laws of science. travelling faster than light is not possible according to science. our best bet is wormholes but even that is just a theory at the moment. america is a warrior culture based civilization. military is a lot more important to them than other fields of science.or preserving our species.besides. if there ever comes a moment when hostile alien lifeforms attacks earth, then you will be happy that mericans had developed all that military tech.

In your example there's a way of seeing that the earth is round, there is research to be done and ways of testing it whereas silicone based life can only be a theory, much like the theory of Mars having a core made of iron. We don't know this for a fact, but it's widely believed because of general knowledge of planets and what they could be made of.

Theoretically you can't move faster than light, but Star Trek actually had a very interesting idea on warp tech that had their engines create large gravity wells infront and behind their ships that caused the ship to be both pulled and launched by sheer gravimetric forces (which have been known to accelerate objects to the speed of light and possibly further by forces of black holes) it's a very neat idea since it bypasses the limitations of mass needing more and more energy to move faster the closer to light speed you get. It's a novel idea, but currently only an idea. I'm sure eventually we'll make something that would let you (at least technically) move as fast or faster than light.
America may be a warrior culture, but it's killing us in the end. We're slowly dying because of it just as every warrior culture before us which is why we need to progress into something that can survive. We need science more than ever now. And if there were a alien race that was capable of travelling to us, our weapons would be as pointless as a sharp stick is against a M1-A2 abrams tank.

you could test it. earliest assumptions about the round earth theory were made using 2 sticks a sheet of paper a pen and a good math head.

faster than light travel is scientifically considered impossible. and the star trek theory is just science fiction.


best bet for interstellar travelling we have. is wormholes. it has already been proven in small scale that somethings CAN "move" faster than light by "folding space" ofcourse even these materials managed to outbeat light to the final destination by fraction of a second so its not viable to use it in further speculations of travel

quite frankly using wooden sticks is one way to incapacitate a tank without destroying it... and most warrior cultures didnt change until they met a warrior culture that managed to beat them up (japan <america china<europe most early south american cultures<europe europe<itself

At the time cell phones, video communication, space travel, and hyposprays. It's all science fiction until it becomes a reality. Most things in start trek are the truest of science fiction because although it is fiction, it has a real basis in science.

I fully agree with you there, wormholes are likely to be out best bet in FTL travel, but they're rather unreliable as of now. Hopefully we'll find a way to detect the location and destination or, if we're being bold, create our own. Hopefully in my lifetime, I'd love to see that.

Wooden sticks plural, sure, but a single slightly sharpened wooden stick? Good luck. But it's only a metaphor. My point being that any species that makes a craft strong enough to survive the harsh, ruthlessness of space radiation, gravity wells, and huge clusterfucks of asteroids plinking against the hull (Any one of which could mean certain doom for everyone on board if they were to breach it) wouldn't even flinch against a direct nuclear bomb hit. They'd probably also have an easy method of killing all life on earth with the flip of a switch. Also, all those civilizations have one thing in common. They chose to throw everything in to fighting and nothing into science so that when someone stronger came along they had nothing else and collapsed. Also, that kind of proves my point with the alien thing, they'd be stronger so we'd fall and have nothing left.

nno.


people may have doubted cell phones and space travels but that wasnt because they were without a basis in reality and science backing them up. and by science i mean real science. star trek mostly works on softcore to mediumcore sciencefiction rather than hardcore.



and i doubt it will be in our lifetime...we might see mars colonized in our lifetime. we might see the start of space empire. but we wont be here when first humans even leave our solar system...


no actually throwing a single large stick at the dreads(not sure if the right word) of the tank to jam it was one of the get gos in finnish military during winter war.also i was more of trying to make a joke to lighten the mood. and most of these civilizations had other problems than their cultural economy. china was largely backwater country stuck in past that refused to advance in any field and it was easily dispatched by the western civilizations that were more heavy on developing their military tech, japan picked suffered from same sort of problems but had largely solved then by the time they attacked usa. their only problem was that they picked a fight with someone who had better industrial connections and output. south american civilizations on the other hand lived in land that hindered their advances in science,for example the terrain they lived in made it so that the aztec didnt discover the wheel before their contact with rest of the world.

Whatever core you'd like to call it, it still has some ground to stand on, though not much.

Probably, it would certainly be nice though. With the exponential progression of the scientific community we might see the first person leave the solar system, but it's unlikely. It's a nice thought though.

America suffers from economic troubles as well, we've been in trouble for quite some time. Every militaristic based culture has fallen because they can't work where as cultures that lose their empire and switch to a more scientific culture often thrive (i.e England, Japan, Ireland, Germany, etc) mainly because they don't have to go picking a fight with every other country to try to justify their spending. When you do this you're not only financially crippling your economy you're just eventually run into the next big fighter and lose everything. We already rely on fighting people to survive, if we keep on doing this time is just going to keep ticking towards inevitable chaos.
User avatar #177 - angelious (02/20/2015) [-]
a very slimsy ground that most would call thin ice in middle of summer. mediumcore science means that you use "actual science" but its liberal use only,examples of this is most of the popular science fiction series like star trek. softcore science fiction creates their own rules of science for example dc comics and marvel comics, and hardcore sciencefiction goes strickly by what actual science fiction has stated and i cant honestly remember any examples for this...




not unless there comes some groundbreaking scientific breakthrough...and considering we are living on the frankenstein era of science i have my doubts...

america goes through the same trouble that every single super power on earth has gone through. they are collapsing under their own weight.

yes for all we know everything science told us is wrong.

you understand how stupid that is? occams razor. search it up

and here we could use your logic that our resources are not as limited as you claim. or remind you again how slim the chances for intelligent life to be born is.

but at what point are these civilizations? if there was an advanced civilization, it could be they died out before earth began to even be able to hold life. or maybe there is a civilization out there that just came up with the design for spear.


and my example worked on same logic as yours.
User avatar #161 - trimageryan (02/20/2015) [-]
I don't quite understand what you're getting at, when did I say everything science has told us is wrong? Most everything I've said is based in the science we know, widely belived by people like Hawkins, Sagan, Tyson, and Rubin.

As I've said before, the slim chance of intelligent life being born is only when considering our own genetic makeup. Silicon is the second most common element in the known universe, there could very well be silicon based life that is 100% different than our own with completely different rules about their survival. They might not need to eat or breath at all. They might not even be capable of dying of old age. We currently have things that do such thing on earth. Lobsters and Jellyfish don't die of old age at all. Is it so weird that a creature made a galaxy away could be so different?

It's just as likely that the same civilization you said could be as advance or more advanced than we are. But whether they were making their first spear or their first warp 4 engine they are still an intelligent life form.
User avatar #162 - angelious (02/20/2015) [-]
that is why i told you to search occams razor. its a philosophical ..idea or somethign? i dont know what they call it. but basically the idea that has less "assumptions" is the one more likely to be correct. your basis that there might be life that defies everything that our science has proven right or wrong. has a lot more assumptions than mine that says "the chances for life to be born on a planet is slim" which has less assumptions about things.


and it also could be that in the place where there should be civilizations is now a smoldering ruins of whatever glorious race there was in the past. or maybe that the planet which is capable of holding life has yet developed to the point that it is able to hold complex life forms.


i do not deal in extremes. the chances are we are alone. or there might be other beings out there.



most likely we will never meet them.
User avatar #164 - trimageryan (02/20/2015) [-]
I'm well aware of occams razor (I believe it's considered a problem solving logic or something similar) but I don't believe it applies here since you keep claiming what I say is against science when modern science backs it (Sources: www.airspacemag.com/daily-planet/is-silicon-based-life-possible-5120513/?no-ist , www.daviddarling.info/encyclopedia/S/siliconlife.html , www.dailygalaxy.com/my_weblog/2011/05/stephen-hawking-on-non-carbon-based-alien-life.html most of which feature prominent scientific minds like Hakwing and Segar and the researchers from MIT) so I'm still not sure where you're getting "going against everything we know in science". I'm not making a lot of assumptions at all, I'm stating statistical facts.

There's just as good of odds that said civilization is thriving and dying, I see no reason to use this as a way of saying that we'll probably never meet anther intelligent life.

To say we'll most likely never meet them seems to be a pretty extreme theory to me.
User avatar #165 - angelious (02/20/2015) [-]
the never meeting an alien species comes from the fact that we have no way of travelling great distances as of yet. even to the nearest place that could hold life is like what? couple of hundreds of years from us.


and as for those links. they all talk about maybes and ifs and possibly.
User avatar #166 - trimageryan (02/20/2015) [-]
Of course they do, they're scientific, to say an absolute on theory would be absurd since we can generally believe it's very possible, but it might now be. That's what science is.

This is true, we currently have no way of travelling great distances. and 100 years ago we had no way of getting from New York to Russia without it being a month long journey, today I can do that in about 10 hours. 20 years ago to say that I could access all of the information on earth from a box in my pocket would put me in a nuthouse, 5 years ago we would say that Will Smith could make nothing wrong but then Jaden Smith came along. Things evolve and change rapidly. The scientific community advances by the hour with great leaps every few years. In another 20 years time we could have invented a lightspeed technology or even find a way to detect worm holes and where they lead. Either way distance isn't an issue, technology is and we're wroking on it daily Though we could be progressing a lot further if NASA's budget wasn't such a joke. Honestly, why spend more on a military that then next 25 countries COMBINED but only pennies on a service that actually advances out species and will preserve our species when America decides to nuke everyhting?!

1:someone always has to be the first. who is to say we arent?

2.i also said that there might have been other alien civilizations out there that might have died out already. since you know. SPACE IS MAD OLD

3.the conditions for there even being life on a planet, let alone sentient are highly slim so the size of space doesnt really matter.

4: by your logic i could claim god exists in the vast infinity of space since we haventh explored it?


putting out the idea that we may be alone or the most advanced species out there might be the same thing as scrapping the cure for cancer since there is a chance someone else has already discovered it.
User avatar #158 - trimageryan (02/20/2015) [-]
The conditions for there being life on a planet is very slim, this is true, but ONLY if you're talking about life identical to our own. For all we know there could be entire systems of silicon based life forms instead of carbon. There could also be carbon based life but they survive solely in +600 degree climates and breath sulfur tetrafluoride which would kill us. Limiting our search for life to only what we are is silly to say the least.

Nobody is saying we aren't the first, even if that was the case (given how young the earth is, that seems unlikely) we came about around 2 and a half million years ago with very limited resources, it's fair to say in that time dozens of civilizations could have popped up since there just in out galaxy alone.

Realistically you could claim there was a god out there somewhere in space. That's why a lot of scientists are agnostic. With those odds there very well could be a god but it's unlikely. Now, if you were to say there was an incredibly advanced being out there that started life on planets but wasn't actually a omniscient, all powerful bearded humanoid that watched over humans and listened to their prayers it's not too unlikely that it could exist.

I think we can both agree space is mad old, but if there were civilizations before, it stands to reason that there are some now as well. If it can happen more than a handful of times in various places in the universe it's not unlikely for it to happen several more times since it's clear that all the building blocks are there.

I don't think your example is entirely accurate since we're talking billions compared to infinity. And that's assuming every since human on earth could cure cancer. When weeding out the technologically inferior, those without access to a lab or scientific equipment capable of making the cure, and knowledge of the field, or any of that we're really only talking about maybe a thousand or so people actually capable of making the cure. Hardly the same thing. Especially since in your example you're stop working towards something because you think it's out there, where as assuming we're not alone is working towards something because we think it's out there.

Also, that kind of proves my point with the alien thing, they'd be stronger so we'd fall and have nothing left.

people may have doubted cell phones and space travels but that wasnt because they were without a basis in reality and science backing them up. and by science i mean real science. star trek mostly works on softcore to mediumcore sciencefiction rather than hardcore.



and i doubt it will be in our lifetime...we might see mars colonized in our lifetime. we might see the start of space empire. but we wont be here when first humans even leave our solar system...


no actually throwing a single large stick at the dreads(not sure if the right word) of the tank to jam it was one of the get gos in finnish military during winter war.also i was more of trying to make a joke to lighten the mood. and most of these civilizations had other problems than their cultural economy. china was largely backwater country stuck in past that refused to advance in any field and it was easily dispatched by the western civilizations that were more heavy on developing their military tech, japan picked suffered from same sort of problems but had largely solved then by the time they attacked usa. their only problem was that they picked a fight with someone who had better industrial connections and output. south american civilizations on the other hand lived in land that hindered their advances in science,for example the terrain they lived in made it so that the aztec didnt discover the wheel before their contact with rest of the world.

Whatever core you'd like to call it, it still has some ground to stand on, though not much.

Probably, it would certainly be nice though. With the exponential progression of the scientific community we might see the first person leave the solar system, but it's unlikely. It's a nice thought though.

America suffers from economic troubles as well, we've been in trouble for quite some time. Every militaristic based culture has fallen because they can't work where as cultures that lose their empire and switch to a more scientific culture often thrive (i.e England, Japan, Ireland, Germany, etc) mainly because they don't have to go picking a fight with every other country to try to justify their spending. When you do this you're not only financially crippling your economy you're just eventually run into the next big fighter and lose everything. We already rely on fighting people to survive, if we keep on doing this time is just going to keep ticking towards inevitable chaos.

there might or might not exist other aliens...


considering the age of the universe it could be that whatever other intelligent life there is in the universe, is either in the stone age or already gone extinct.



and considering the vast distances that space has, its highly unlikely we will meet aliens for another couple of thousand of years...if we ever will.
User avatar #156 - trimageryan (02/20/2015) [-]
"there might or might not exist other aliens... "

That's very disagreeable. The odds of there not being aliens in all the universe are nearly non-existent with the same size and age of the universe you just stated.

To say we're the only life that has gotten this far is one of the most arrogant things a sentient being can say. To assume we, out of the near infinite number of planets out there, are the only ones to have any sort of intelligent life with the knowledge that we've explored such a small amount of just the known universe that it's the closest thing you could possibly get to the number 0 without being 0 is like a toddler learning to walk and assuming he's the only one capable of walking now.
User avatar #157 - angelious (02/20/2015) [-]
1:someone always has to be the first. who is to say we arent?

2.i also said that there might have been other alien civilizations out there that might have died out already. since you know. SPACE IS MAD OLD

3.the conditions for there even being life on a planet, let alone sentient are highly slim so the size of space doesnt really matter.

4: by your logic i could claim god exists in the vast infinity of space since we haventh explored it?


putting out the idea that we may be alone or the most advanced species out there might be the same thing as scrapping the cure for cancer since there is a chance someone else has already discovered it.
User avatar #158 - trimageryan (02/20/2015) [-]
The conditions for there being life on a planet is very slim, this is true, but ONLY if you're talking about life identical to our own. For all we know there could be entire systems of silicon based life forms instead of carbon. There could also be carbon based life but they survive solely in +600 degree climates and breath sulfur tetrafluoride which would kill us. Limiting our search for life to only what we are is silly to say the least.

Nobody is saying we aren't the first, even if that was the case (given how young the earth is, that seems unlikely) we came about around 2 and a half million years ago with very limited resources, it's fair to say in that time dozens of civilizations could have popped up since there just in out galaxy alone.

Realistically you could claim there was a god out there somewhere in space. That's why a lot of scientists are agnostic. With those odds there very well could be a god but it's unlikely. Now, if you were to say there was an incredibly advanced being out there that started life on planets but wasn't actually a omniscient, all powerful bearded humanoid that watched over humans and listened to their prayers it's not too unlikely that it could exist.

I think we can both agree space is mad old, but if there were civilizations before, it stands to reason that there are some now as well. If it can happen more than a handful of times in various places in the universe it's not unlikely for it to happen several more times since it's clear that all the building blocks are there.

I don't think your example is entirely accurate since we're talking billions compared to infinity. And that's assuming every since human on earth could cure cancer. When weeding out the technologically inferior, those without access to a lab or scientific equipment capable of making the cure, and knowledge of the field, or any of that we're really only talking about maybe a thousand or so people actually capable of making the cure. Hardly the same thing. Especially since in your example you're stop working towards something because you think it's out there, where as assuming we're not alone is working towards something because we think it's out there.
User avatar #160 - angelious (02/20/2015) [-]
yes for all we know everything science told us is wrong.

you understand how stupid that is? occams razor. search it up

and here we could use your logic that our resources are not as limited as you claim. or remind you again how slim the chances for intelligent life to be born is.

but at what point are these civilizations? if there was an advanced civilization, it could be they died out before earth began to even be able to hold life. or maybe there is a civilization out there that just came up with the design for spear.


and my example worked on same logic as yours.
User avatar #161 - trimageryan (02/20/2015) [-]
I don't quite understand what you're getting at, when did I say everything science has told us is wrong? Most everything I've said is based in the science we know, widely belived by people like Hawkins, Sagan, Tyson, and Rubin.

As I've said before, the slim chance of intelligent life being born is only when considering our own genetic makeup. Silicon is the second most common element in the known universe, there could very well be silicon based life that is 100% different than our own with completely different rules about their survival. They might not need to eat or breath at all. They might not even be capable of dying of old age. We currently have things that do such thing on earth. Lobsters and Jellyfish don't die of old age at all. Is it so weird that a creature made a galaxy away could be so different?

It's just as likely that the same civilization you said could be as advance or more advanced than we are. But whether they were making their first spear or their first warp 4 engine they are still an intelligent life form.
User avatar #162 - angelious (02/20/2015) [-]
that is why i told you to search occams razor. its a philosophical ..idea or somethign? i dont know what they call it. but basically the idea that has less "assumptions" is the one more likely to be correct. your basis that there might be life that defies everything that our science has proven right or wrong. has a lot more assumptions than mine that says "the chances for life to be born on a planet is slim" which has less assumptions about things.


and it also could be that in the place where there should be civilizations is now a smoldering ruins of whatever glorious race there was in the past. or maybe that the planet which is capable of holding life has yet developed to the point that it is able to hold complex life forms.


i do not deal in extremes. the chances are we are alone. or there might be other beings out there.



most likely we will never meet them.
User avatar #164 - trimageryan (02/20/2015) [-]
I'm well aware of occams razor (I believe it's considered a problem solving logic or something similar) but I don't believe it applies here since you keep claiming what I say is against science when modern science backs it (Sources: www.airspacemag.com/daily-planet/is-silicon-based-life-possible-5120513/?no-ist , www.daviddarling.info/encyclopedia/S/siliconlife.html , www.dailygalaxy.com/my_weblog/2011/05/stephen-hawking-on-non-carbon-based-alien-life.html most of which feature prominent scientific minds like Hakwing and Segar and the researchers from MIT) so I'm still not sure where you're getting "going against everything we know in science". I'm not making a lot of assumptions at all, I'm stating statistical facts.

There's just as good of odds that said civilization is thriving and dying, I see no reason to use this as a way of saying that we'll probably never meet anther intelligent life.

To say we'll most likely never meet them seems to be a pretty extreme theory to me.
User avatar #165 - angelious (02/20/2015) [-]
the never meeting an alien species comes from the fact that we have no way of travelling great distances as of yet. even to the nearest place that could hold life is like what? couple of hundreds of years from us.


and as for those links. they all talk about maybes and ifs and possibly.
User avatar #166 - trimageryan (02/20/2015) [-]
Of course they do, they're scientific, to say an absolute on theory would be absurd since we can generally believe it's very possible, but it might now be. That's what science is.

This is true, we currently have no way of travelling great distances. and 100 years ago we had no way of getting from New York to Russia without it being a month long journey, today I can do that in about 10 hours. 20 years ago to say that I could access all of the information on earth from a box in my pocket would put me in a nuthouse, 5 years ago we would say that Will Smith could make nothing wrong but then Jaden Smith came along. Things evolve and change rapidly. The scientific community advances by the hour with great leaps every few years. In another 20 years time we could have invented a lightspeed technology or even find a way to detect worm holes and where they lead. Either way distance isn't an issue, technology is and we're wroking on it daily Though we could be progressing a lot further if NASA's budget wasn't such a joke. Honestly, why spend more on a military that then next 25 countries COMBINED but only pennies on a service that actually advances out species and will preserve our species when America decides to nuke everyhting?!
User avatar #167 - angelious (02/20/2015) [-]
i know. nothing is written in stone. but there is a difference in saying "maybe earth is round" than saying "after extensive research i have come to the conclusion that earth is round"

yeah and all those was possible by the laws of science. travelling faster than light is not possible according to science. our best bet is wormholes but even that is just a theory at the moment. america is a warrior culture based civilization. military is a lot more important to them than other fields of science.or preserving our species.besides. if there ever comes a moment when hostile alien lifeforms attacks earth, then you will be happy that mericans had developed all that military tech.
User avatar #172 - trimageryan (02/20/2015) [-]
In your example there's a way of seeing that the earth is round, there is research to be done and ways of testing it whereas silicone based life can only be a theory, much like the theory of Mars having a core made of iron. We don't know this for a fact, but it's widely believed because of general knowledge of planets and what they could be made of.

Theoretically you can't move faster than light, but Star Trek actually had a very interesting idea on warp tech that had their engines create large gravity wells infront and behind their ships that caused the ship to be both pulled and launched by sheer gravimetric forces (which have been known to accelerate objects to the speed of light and possibly further by forces of black holes) it's a very neat idea since it bypasses the limitations of mass needing more and more energy to move faster the closer to light speed you get. It's a novel idea, but currently only an idea. I'm sure eventually we'll make something that would let you (at least technically) move as fast or faster than light.
America may be a warrior culture, but it's killing us in the end. We're slowly dying because of it just as every warrior culture before us which is why we need to progress into something that can survive. We need science more than ever now. And if there were a alien race that was capable of travelling to us, our weapons would be as pointless as a sharp stick is against a M1-A2 abrams tank.
User avatar #173 - angelious (02/20/2015) [-]
you could test it. earliest assumptions about the round earth theory were made using 2 sticks a sheet of paper a pen and a good math head.

faster than light travel is scientifically considered impossible. and the star trek theory is just science fiction.


best bet for interstellar travelling we have. is wormholes. it has already been proven in small scale that somethings CAN "move" faster than light by "folding space" ofcourse even these materials managed to outbeat light to the final destination by fraction of a second so its not viable to use it in further speculations of travel

quite frankly using wooden sticks is one way to incapacitate a tank without destroying it... and most warrior cultures didnt change until they met a warrior culture that managed to beat them up (japan <america china<europe most early south american cultures<europe europe<itself
User avatar #174 - trimageryan (02/20/2015) [-]
At the time cell phones, video communication, space travel, and hyposprays. It's all science fiction until it becomes a reality. Most things in start trek are the truest of science fiction because although it is fiction, it has a real basis in science.

I fully agree with you there, wormholes are likely to be out best bet in FTL travel, but they're rather unreliable as of now. Hopefully we'll find a way to detect the location and destination or, if we're being bold, create our own. Hopefully in my lifetime, I'd love to see that.

Wooden sticks plural, sure, but a single slightly sharpened wooden stick? Good luck. But it's only a metaphor. My point being that any species that makes a craft strong enough to survive the harsh, ruthlessness of space radiation, gravity wells, and huge clusterfucks of asteroids plinking against the hull (Any one of which could mean certain doom for everyone on board if they were to breach it) wouldn't even flinch against a direct nuclear bomb hit. They'd probably also have an easy method of killing all life on earth with the flip of a switch. Also, all those civilizations have one thing in common. They chose to throw everything in to fighting and nothing into science so that when someone stronger came along they had nothing else and collapsed. Also, that kind of proves my point with the alien thing, they'd be stronger so we'd fall and have nothing left.

Watch how I soar*
Let us see.....Chronicle was fantastic, Fright Night, I Am Legend was one of the best Will Smith movies to date, John Carter (For a Disney movie it was sublime), Pulp Fiction, or Sucker Punch.

Chronicle was a 10, I am Legend was a 10, Pulp Fiction was a 20/10, John Carter ill watch when im able to torrent it, sucker punch never really wanted to see it, besides the ladies. fright knight is that one vampire movie right?
User avatar #78 to #105 - trimageryan (06/21/2012) [-]
Yes it is, it's actually a remake of a movie by the same name from 1985. It has Collin Ferrel and David Tennant in it, need I say more? It's also nice to see Vampires return to their roots such as actually eating people like cattle, following the rules of vampirism (not being allowed in houses you're not invited into, crosses of a certain make hurt, etc)
Sucker Punch is a surprisingly good movie that I too was hesitant to see but a friend insisted and I was amazed by the depth of the story and how well done it was.

i might watch fright knight cuz it looked interesting. Have you seen the new Sherlock Homes? That movie was a truly amazing movie.
User avatar #80 to #107 - trimageryan (06/21/2012) [-]
I actually haven't gotten around to it yet. It's in my movie folder but I've been re-re-re-replaying Skyrim -.-
That game is addicted to me, I think it may have a problem.
#81 to #108 - palestineforlife (06/22/2012) [-]
There have been reports of that, its the equivalent to overly attached girlfriend, watch out before it takes you over
User avatar #82 to #109 - trimageryan (06/22/2012) [-]
Agreed, I may have to set up an intervention for it.....after then next quest....
#83 to #110 - palestineforlife (06/22/2012) [-]
But what about the quest after it?
User avatar #84 to #111 - trimageryan (06/22/2012) [-]
Damn, I forgot about that one......
I'll figure something out.
#85 to #112 - palestineforlife (06/22/2012) [-]
Well damn what about the one after that too? Before i watch Fright Night, im going to play BF3, i think it has the same sickness as Skyrim
User avatar #86 to #113 - trimageryan (06/22/2012) [-]
I do love BF3 as well, it such a better game then MW3 yet for some reason it's not as loved. People like what they already know I guess and the MW series certainly is giving them it.

Call of Duty is just a game in which no body cares about the game but they only care its a COD game
User avatar #88 to #115 - trimageryan (06/22/2012) [-]
Well put sir.
#89 to #116 - palestineforlife (06/22/2012) [-]
thank you sarg. Got an other good movies
User avatar #90 to #117 - trimageryan (06/22/2012) [-]
Well, lets see. In Bruges is a pretty good movie, Inglorious Basterds, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (Or pretty much anything with Robert Downey Jr), I'm going to assume you've also seen Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day, Black Dynamite was pretty damn funny, and of coarse Donnie Darko is a necessary movie to see.
#91 to #118 - palestineforlife (06/22/2012) [-]
I see you're a fan of sci-fi movies. How funny is In Bruges cuz it looks pretty funny. Speaking of Robert Downy Jr. i just downloaded Sherlock Holmes 2.
User avatar #92 to #119 - trimageryan (06/22/2012) [-]
I do enjoy Sci-fi above most else because I feel that's what movies were made for, absurdities that don't happen in life (Though plausible they may be)
In Bruges is pretty funny but it's more of a dry humor at times which I enjoy.
And if you like Sci-fi as well check out more movies made by Joss Wheaton (The man behind Serenity, Buffy, and more recently the Avengers movie) I have yet to see a single movie by him that I didn't enjoy.
I'll probably watch the Sherlock sequel tomorrow (Or rather later today depending on your perceptual differences) if I have time.
#93 to #120 - palestineforlife (06/22/2012) [-]
I see you're also a huge movie guy, i respect that. i just began the download for In Bruges and i would see Sherlock squeal now but it is 4:30 in the morning so im just gonna watch Fright Night now

User avatar #61 to #62 - trimageryan (05/21/2012) [-]
Yay ^-^
Hello. You were the first person out of the entire front page of the newest uploads to say hi and for that I will always love you.

I heard you were making a Toph compilation. Take this.
User avatar #56 to #57 - trimageryan (05/08/2012) [-]
Thank you my friend, I'll be sure to add it and give you credit.
User avatar #57 to #58 - nigeltheoutlaw (05/08/2012) [-]
Your welcome!
User avatar #58 to #59 - trimageryan (05/08/2012) [-]
I just uploaded the compilation (I couldn't get enough of only Toph even though she's the best character so I just use the whole Gaang)

Good for you love ^-^
Did you start on Mockingjay yet?

Good, the ending to Catching Fire is fantastic.

Absolutely my friend. I've read all three books a couple (maybe 4) times each, seen the movie twice (Once was because my friend didn't want to go alone) and wear a mockingjay necklace everyday. You could say I'm a bit obsessed ^-^

I do, it's a fantastic series. I don't read very often unless I find something really gripping and I couldn't put them down. It's got some simplistic yet deep and wonderful writing, plus every chapter feels significant. Though it kind of annoys me that most chapters end with one of those moments where you must find out what happens next. It makes finding a stopping point rather difficult :/
#42 to #43 - kelciekupkakes **User deleted account** has deleted their comment [-]
User avatar #43 to #44 - trimageryan (05/01/2012) [-]
I did that too ^-^
When it ends it's sad that the series is over but the ending does fill you with contentment that makes you feel a little better about it.

I thought the movie was.....acceptable. It wasn't bad but it bugged me that they missed quite a few important things in it (Cinnas assistants, the Mutts being dead tributes, Madge, Katniss losing hearing in her ear, the list goes on) but I understand that it's a movie version and they have to cut certain things but my extremely high expectations weren't met, though it they were rather unreasonable. Also, I was really looking forward to seeing Woody Harrison falling off the stage at the reaping :(
What did you think?

Oh please, I love a good rant, it shows passion :)
Yes, when Peeta's leg was perfectly fine I was really mad, that plays a decently large part in the future.I can't imagine how they're going to cover their asses when they need to bring up what they missed in the next movies.
I really want them to come out with an extended version for the fans that has more detail, sort of like what they did with Lord Of The Rings.

If you want a pretty fantastic little movie about the Second Quarter Quell you should check out this youtube video. It's fan-made but so well done.

I completely agree, Jennifer Lawrence did a great job as Katniss and Woody Harrison did a pretty good job as Haymitch though I felt like his character was too nice and helpful throughout the movie. He was very helpful towards the middle but only after he was a fall down drunk who just acted pissed off all of the time. They also took out Haymitch subtly talking to Katniss by giving or not giving her parachute gifts when he wanted to say something and replaced that cleverness with fortune cookie-esc paper.

The whipping better stay in because, as you said, it shows hiw much Katniss cares for Gale which set up a large part of her tug-of-war of love between Gale and Peeta. I may be a guy, but I still loved the sub-plot of that because it kept me switching on who I wanted Katniss to be with until the last half of Mockingjay.

I completely agree.

And the url was deleted, brilliant -.-
Just look up "The Second Quarter Quell" on youtube. It should be the very first one.

You, you I love ^-^
You also have great timing since I just got back (Roughly 8 hours after you posted this, but still) from seeing the Hunger Games movie.
