I could care less about your opinion or anyone else's opinion of me or my thoughts on here.
Sure we have made progress like I said before but is it really exciting knowing that someones theory is either correct (1) or not correct (0) when nature already knows and has the answer and does the answer change anything? To me it does not.
This isn't a matter of opinion. This is a matter of fact, and let me show you where you are dead WRONG:
Current telescopes no longer use glass. They use mirrors, which can be made far larger than glass. There is a limit to how large we can make telescopes, especially the size that we can transport into space.
We receive less than 1 degree of light from extrasolar objects. That's like trying to look through a pinhole with a magnifying glass and discerning the features of a person's face 100 feet behind the pinhole. It simply can't be done with our current technology, we can't magnify things that much. If it were that easy for scientists to do, they would have done it already.
Why do we send probes to other planets within our own solar system? It's because we simply cannot see enough from where we are. We can't see what's on Earth-sized moons around Saturn and Jupiter, what makes you think we can see what's on Earth-sized planets around other stars?
Again, a theory IS NOT PROVEN CORRECT. THERE IS ONLY SUPPORT FOR A THEORY
OR PROOF AGAINST A THEORY.
