With Dwayne Sheffield

In Romans 5:12-14 it says that All that are born under Adam have sinned, for in Adam All die (1 Corinthians 15:22). But in the next breath it contradicts that ALL have sinned and says there are some that were not affected by Adam's sin; and to find out why this was said, turn to John 10:16 where "Jesus" says there are others that are not of this earthly fold (or in Adam - who is Adam?) that He will bring with him when he returns to the planet, implying they are not of this planet and must be somewhere in the next scripture reference -

- Ecclesiastes 5:8, which definitely assures that there are many, many, others "Out There" not of the earthly fold.  The first man Adam is, as it says, "is of the earth earthy" and it is apparent these "Others" are not. It is also written: "God does not work in a corner", He and the universe are one, i.e., omnipresent. If there are billions of other solar systems that duplicate our own then one must ask the obvious, "surely we're not alone, are we?" 

Are we alone?

Odds on aliens
One in three planets like Earth probably harbor life.

If there are other planets like Earth out there, at least one in three
probably harbors life, say two physicists in Australia. If life can arise
on planets unlike ours, then the odds on finding life are even more
favorable.
 
Charles Lineweaver and Tamara Davis of the University of New South Wales in
Sydney argue that, despite our sample of habitable planets being but one, we
are not as ignorant about life elsewhere as it might seem.
 
We can glean important knowledge from the fact that life on Earth seems to
have evolved very quickly, say the pair. According to the earliest fossil
records, life took no more than about half a billion years to gain a
foothold, once the planetary conditions were amenable. This time scale might
actually have been much less - even instantaneous in geological terms.
 
This rapidity tells us that the probability of life developing on an
Earth-like planet is high, Line weaver and Davis reckon. If a gambler wins
the lottery within the first three days of buying tickets, it is likely,
although not certain, that the chance of winning is high. The fact that "we
won soon after life became possible on Earth", say the researchers, points
to there having been a good chance of life developing.
 
Several unknowns might demolish the researchers' statistical argument. For
example, life may have to develop rapidly if it is to develop at all. Then
we are back to knowing nothing from our sample of one. Or Earth may be more
finely tuned to nurturing life than we think - a truly habitable planet may
have to be not just similar to Earth but virtually identical.
 
It is also possible that life might appear on planets that are radically
unlike Earth. In this case, the researchers' optimistic conclusion
 represents a minimum probability, making life elsewhere even more likely.

The Drake equation

Lineweaver and Davis used the geological record of life on Earth to pin down a key unknown in a famous formula that calculates the likely fraction of stars in our galaxy on which life has appeared.

Called the Drake Equation, the formula was devised by astronomer Frank Drake in 1961. It summarizes all the factors involved in the likelihood of our detecting signals broadcast by an intelligent alien civilization.

Lineweaver and Davis considered a simpler version of the equation, which asks merely what proportion of stars have evolved any kind of life, not necessarily intelligent. This question can be broken down into three parts: what fraction of stars have planetary systems, what fraction of those planetary systems contain a habitable planet, and on what fraction of those habitable worlds life has actually appeared.

In the past decade, astronomical observations of planets around stars other than our own sun have started to tell us about the first two terms in the equation. NASA has just announced a new programme called the Terrestrial Planet Finder (TPF), which will use Earth-based astronomy to scan for Earth-like planets outside our Solar System. The design of the TPF mission will be finalized in 2006.

But it is the mysterious third factor that Lineweaver and Davis have put a figure on - the fraction of habitable worlds on which life has actually appeared. Some scientists argue that it is extremely small; others contend that life is virtually inevitable on any potentially habitable world - that the fraction is very close to one.

For Earth-like planets that are older than about a billion years (Earth is about 4.5 billion years old), this fraction is indeed probably close to one, say the duo. They think there is a high probability that it is at least 0.33.

This doesn't in itself mean that life elsewhere is very likely, however. Quite apart from the assumptions that the researchers have made, we don't yet know the other terms in the equation.

Below are some actual quotes from prominent sources that the reader may consider...: 

"In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us realize this common bond. I occasionally think how quickly our differences would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And yet, I ask you, IS NOT AN ALIEN FORCE ALREADY AMONG US?" -- President Ronald Reagan., Remarks made to the 42nd General Assembly of the United Nations., Sept. 21, 1987. 

"Public interest in disclosure is far outweighed by the sensitive nature of the materials and the obvious effect on national security their release may entail." -- U.S. District Court Opinion in the case of Citizens Against UFO Secrecy vs. the National Security Agency., May 18, 1982. 

"We have stacks of reports about flying saucers. WE TAKE THEM SERIOUSLY when you consider WE HAVE LOST MANY MEN AND PLANES TRYING TO INTERCEPT THEM." -- February, 1953. Statement by U.S. General CHIDLAW in charge of the United States Continental Air Defense. 

"I consider that UFOS ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT PROBLEM FACING THE UNITED NATIONS next to the war in Vietnam." -- June, 1967. Statement by U.N. Secretary General U THANT, as quoted in the NEW YORK POST, June 27, 1967. 

Fast Walker is a code word created by NORAD (North American Air Defense Command) to classify (UFOs) unidentified flying objects which approach our Earth from space and enter our atmosphere. It has been reported that from its subterranean facility deep inside Cheyenne Mountain, Colorado, USA, the Air Force NORAD facility tracks a rough average of 500 of these "Fastwalkers" each year.

It is time for the truth to be known: we are not alone in the Cosmos…and
WE ARE NOT ALONE — HERE ON EARTH. Dr. Steven Greer, founder of the worldwide Disclosure Movement and the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence is working with Emmy award winning filmmaker Amardeep Kaleka and his team at Never ending Light Productions to produce one of the most significant films of our time.
