PROFESSOR STEPHEN HAWKING READS MY BLOG?!


Stephen Hawking, Lucasian Professor of Physics at Cambridge University, reads my blog - like all you dear readers?! (See Saturday’s post below Are We Alone In The Universe?) Seriously (though it’s not impossible, as an extremely intelligent scientist, he reads my extremely profound thoughts and yours!), he answered my question in yesterday’s UK press, for example the Sunday Telegraph, that aliens almost certainly exist but has warned us not to try to contact them. Professor Hawking says that in a universe with 100 billion galaxies, each containing hundreds of millions of stars, it’s unlikely that earth is the only place where life has evolved and adds, "If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn't turn out very well for the American Indians..."

Do you agree with Professor Hawking that we should not try to contact any potential alien life? Or, with Earth’s natural resources being less than infinite, we’ll have no alternative?
Happy Blue Monday! (Above, Crop Circles in Cornwall). Other great posts @
Smiling Sally! Enjoy!
XOXO LOLA:)
PS Sorry for such a ‘heavy’ start to the week! Lighter note for Ruby Tuesday!

Prof Hawking's long overdue that Nobel prize -just needs proof those black holes really do exist!

I agree with Professor H: why would we want to contact aliens, don't we have enough problems to deal with? LOL
*kisses* HH

I will continue to contact people on earth and God in Heaven. Others, I will ignore. Happy Blue Monday.

I think for the time being we need to leave well enough alone. We can't even get along with each other.

Happy Blue Monday. That's some blue in the photo. About the Earth's resources - I'll stick w/what Jehovah God's Word says --He formed it (and the heavens) set its boundaries, perpetual seasons, and what's to come concerning man and the earth in general.
Concerning other life. I like and concur w/Sally's comment. That was a heavy topic! :) Jenn

Michelle said...

How wonderful!!! I have to agree with the professor....I have always wondered where other life exists. :)
