On the record: I doubt that we human beings are the only thinking life forms in this entire universe, which is so vast and so uncharted that only a closed mind would insist that we are the only sentient beings in existence. As our measuring and viewing instruments become stronger and finer, we, or our descendants, will understand the issues that were earlier only stuff of dreams and speculation. ~5700

The astonishing ring was spotted over the city and captured on video by stunned locals.
It has been described as a “true mystery” by a UFO expert.
Scores of supernatural enthusiasts have been gripped by the astonishing footage and speculated it could be an ALIEN MOTHERSHIP.
The sighting in the clouds is reminiscent of scenes from the 1996 Hollywood blockbuster Independence Day.
Aliens tried destroy the earth massive using circular ships to zap the planet powerful mega lasers.
Nick Pope, a former UFO analyst for the Ministry of Defence, examined the remarkable footage.
People have been left baffled by a circular light, seen hovering high over Moscow on Wednesday evening. Scientists have rejected claims of UFO activity, saying the white cloud was no more than an optical illusion.
He said: “I’ve never seen anything like this. It’s a true mystery.
“Whatever it is, it’s one of the most beautiful and spectacular things I’ve ever seen.
“Speculation is at fever pitch on the internet.”
“This is being discussed on forums, blogs and email lists all around the world. Some people say it’s a bizarre meteorological effect.
“Theories range from it being an alien mothership, proof of Russian weather modification technology – a weather weapon – or even a sign of the end of the world.
The video has appeared on YouTube and been viewed more than 100,000 times.
The bizarre light was spotted last Wednesday.
But meteorologists rejected theories of the supernatural calling it an optical effect.
The Moscow’s weather bureau said several weather fronts had passed through Moscow as the sun shined from the west to cause the effect.
A spokesman for the bureau said: “This is purely an optical effect, although it does look impressive.
“If you look closer, you can see sun rays coming through that cloud. Most likely, the sun was setting when the video was being made.”
