The Truth Is Not Out There.
The truth is out there, promised the voiceover man at the start of television cult sci - fi series The X Files. Well it might be but if it is we are no nearer to finding it. And since the X Files introduced us to cryptozoology and quantum weirdness we don't seem to be any closer to the truth. Maybe out there is the wrong place to look.

The Truth Is Not Out There
by Xavier Connolly

There is no hope of finding alien life in space because conditions on all other planets are too hostile, a leading astronomer has claimed. This goes against recent, almost hysterical claims from research grant phishing astrophysicists who claim the 'photographs of neighbouring galaxies' (in fact CGI images constructed from measurements of radiation coming in from certain parts of outer space) have 'proved' 'the truth is out there' and there could be many planets capable of supporting life in the closest galaxy alone. This closes galaxy, the Andromeda galaxy, is two and a half million light years away which means light emitted from there now will not be seen on earth for two and a half million years.

Light travels at an estimated 186,000 miles per second, about 25,000 times faster than the fastest space vehicle humans have so far made. So if we set off now, with current technology we would reach the Andromeda galaxy in 67.5 million years time. I know life expectancy is increasing but not that much.

Howard Smith, a senior astrophysicist at Harvard, made the claim that we are alone in the universe after an analysis of the 500 planets discovered so far showed all were hostile to life.

Dr Smith said the extreme conditions found so far on planets discovered outside out Solar System are likely to be the norm, and that the hospitable conditions on Earth could be unique. “We have found that most other planets and solar systems are wildly different from our own. They are very hostile to life as we know it,” he said.

He pointed to stars such as HD10180, which sparked great excitement when it was found to be orbiter by a planet of similar size and appearance to Earth. But the similarities turned out to be superficial. The planet lies less than two million miles from its sun, meaning it is roasting hot, stripped of its atmosphere and blasted by radiation.

Now this is a big assumption. The Universe is claimed to consist of approximately 100 million galaxies each containing a hundred billion stars. Don't ask me who counted, but maybe we should put that person on our first intergalactic space probe as they would have to have cracked the immortality thing. So Dr. Smith is basing his calculation on a tiny sample of stars that have orbiting planets.

There are many sciencyheads (people who are so addicted to science their brains are addled by the obsession.) Science is their religion and they are determined to suppress the questioning of people still enough in possession of our mental faculties to be healthily sceptical of anyone who tries to win their agruement by the appeal to a higher authority; "This is Science, no intelligent person would question it."

As such a sceptic, and a horse racing enthusiast I have to say that having analysed the form scientifically my opinion is to give these 'scientists the kind of research funding they are asking for in the hope of seeing a return would be like betting one's life savings on a three legged horse in the Derby.

The truth is not out there.

It has become more and more obvious that the current generation of scientis ts are a bunch of OCD geeks who can't differentiate between science fact and science fiction.

Mind control, the ability of science to deliver a completely compliant and uncomplaining population.

Coronavirus Contains “HIV Insertions”: Claim Stokes Fears Over Genetically Modified BioweaponFor the past two weeks mainstream media reporting of the epidemic of a new strain of coronavirus in China has been getting more and more hysterical.

Time is NOT real: Physicists show EVERYTHING happens at the same time

The concept of time is simply an illusion made up of human memories, everything that has ever been and ever will be is happening RIGHT NOW. That is the theory according to a group of esteemed physicists who aim to solve one of the universe’s mysteries.
Most people do not even consider the concept of time but there is nothing in the laws of physics to state that it should move in the forward direction that we know. The laws of physics are symmetric ultimately meaning that time could have easily moved in a backward direction as it does forward. Indeed some adherents to the ‘big crunch’ theory say time WILL run backwards when the universe stops expanding and starts contracting back in on itself.
