You have got to be kidding me right???

We can barely see the Jupitor sized planets and have found one rocky planet 10 times the size of earth and that's the smallest we can see. So because we don't have the technology to see them we must be unique?

I can name 3 other planets that may have habitable moon or may be habitable themselves.

Gliese 581c
55 cancri f
HD 69830 d

All within 50 light years, Earth is not unique. We can find planets also by looking at the spectrum of the star, changes in brightness, and polar wobble.

Religion is a great tool for the smart and poor and hopeless, but a weapon in the hands of the ignorant and moronic and violent persons.

Religion does not start wars... Idiots that contrive and twist it to their own plot do.

Earth unique maybe,...but it's only one planet they've (Japanese) scoped out in an infinite universe.
We've barely traveled to our neighbours next-door (solar planets) let alone the next town/city (galaxy)...

You might want to read this:  http://www.planetary.org/news/2007/0425_Mo...Discovered.html

The article talk about Gliese 581c, which is the smallest exoplanet discovered. Its 1.5 times larger than Earth and is located in a region of that solar system which is right for life to develop.

See what no one else sees. See what everyone chooses not to see... out of fear, conformity or laziness. See the whole world a new each day.

Moving to a more appropriate section.
