One Current theory, based on estimated star formation rates from
Hubble Telescope, and others.  

Time begins> Universe accelerates.

2 bil.yrs.> Early stars. Fusion creates carbon. Outer gas layers lost
and carbon distributes. Cores remained as White dwarf stars.

6 bil. yrs.> Carbon production peaks.

8.5 bil. yrs.> Sun/Earth formed.

8 bil. yrs.> Life on earth appearing.

11 bil. yrs.> Multi-celled organisms appear.

12 bil. yrs.> Sea based life emerges onto land.

13.696 bil. yrs. > humans first appear.

13.7 bil. yrs. > man goes to earth's moon.

If we strictly use this as the benchmark for life, than it is doubtful
that anyone preceeded us by more than one million years.

It still creates a wide swath, within those million years.
If a civilization was 100,000 years older than ours, then perhaps
they have pushed the boundries of applied physics.
Four types of gallaxies. Spiral sorts are favorable to life, others much less so.
We live on the perimeter of our galaxy.

  • We should respect a person not because who they are, but what they do with their life, is the way they earn our respect.

I once believed in aliens and spacecrafts but not life on other planets the reason why I'm not a sceptic is because of a show of all things. I watched a show on the Space Channel on aliens and stuff the guy (that they interviewed) said he was abducted, and (and here's the bizare part) said that the aliens couldn't breath our air. (that got me thinking) And that they (meaning the aliens) used robots to inspect him! Sheesh! And I remember being kinda disapointed that he passed his lie dector test. The reason why now I'm a skeptic (and still am) is becaus of two things: 1) the aliens couldn't breath our atmosphere/air.  2) that they had to use robots to inspect him! That got be thinking about aliens. And thats why I don't believe, yes it sounds crazy because I watched a tv show about them.   laugh.gif
