[io9]Our galaxy is home to more than 50 billion planets…and 500 million habitable one - Page 11

post #101 of 104
The claim that we don't know everything doesn't mean we don't know anything.

We know quite a bit about matter and how protons, neutrons, and electrons make up matter. We have even manufactured elements that don't exist on this planet or observable space.

I feel pretty comfortable stating that there are no stable elements hiding somewhere in between elements on the periodic table.
I don't think that makes me arrogant, just knowledgeable.

It wasn't a one time thing(like the analogy suggests) and we randomly came out the way we are. It was a very slow and long process that went from extremely simple to complex. And while the changes may have been random initially which changes stay and which die out is anything but random. On top of that the analogy assumes that the end result was something known before hand and worked its way towards it which is hardly the case. That analogy is nothing more than a straw man, a ridiculous exaggeration that bears no resemblance to what the theory actually says.

Also note, I am not attempting to starting a religious debate, I just wanted to address this post.
You read "The God Delusion" I bet. As for intelligent life being out there. I'd have to say that its more than probable. I'm normally not one to make references to tv shows but that show "Ancient Aliens" talks about stuff like this and is very convincing that an extraterrestrial species has already been on this planet.

whos to really say if there is life intelligent enough to traverse the galaxy that they would want anything to do with us. they might just look at us and see that we have nothing to offer them that they dont already know/have.

No I haven't, I don't really care for Dawkins. That analogy has been picked apart long before that book has been out though.
