Earth found to be one of a kind

https://www.rt.com/news/333199-earth-unique-new-study/

Avatar fans prepare yourself for disappointment as we’re afraid you may never get to live on Pandora. A new study has shown that Earth truly is one of a kind with nothing coming close to life on this planet.

Astronomers in Sweden used computer simulations to model the known universe from existing data and then applied the laws of physics to advance the model 13.8 billion years. Out of the 700 quintillion potential planets, none resembled Earth, meaning we may be very alone after all.

The results call into question the Copernican principle which says that humans are not privileged observers in this universe and that we do not occupy a “special place”. The principle was found when Renaissance scientist Nicolaus Copernicus proved Earth was not the center of the universe 400 years ago.

Researchers cite Earth’s relatively young age as a factor in the violation of the Copernican principle.

“If you have these civilizations that had a 3.5-billion-year head start on us, why haven’t they colonized our galaxy?”cosmologist Max Tegmark told Scientific American. “To me, the most likely explanation is that if the planets are a dime a dozen, then highly intelligent life evolves only rarely.”

deniers!!

“The results call into question the Copernican principle which says that humans are not privileged observers in this universe and that we do not occupy a “special place”.”

maybe we are privileged?

  1. Cool!
    Let’s hear it for the Bible!
    In fact , this is cooler than cool.
    Thanks for passing along the good news.

  2. total bullshit, as this is an instance where you cannot prove a negative.

    if i say “there are no unicorns,” it is impossible to prove it. there could be a unicorn behind that rock, or on mars, or in another galaxy.

    but if i say “there are unicorns” it is a simple matter to prove it – simply point out a unicorn.

    as seek is fond of saying (and i paraphrase xxx-style): how the fuck do they know? because of their ‘models?’ same models that demonstrate AGW?🙂

    spent a couple of nights with a 98 year old in the hospital with pneumonia this week. when you are laying on your death bed, ask your god how privileged you are. ask him if you are the center of his universe. he won’t answer – and you will die.

    • cheers xxx..i should TM that saying..🙂

      yes its just opinions..and most likely model based..we know very, very little about our “world” when its all boiled down..got another “breakthrough” science story tomorrow..

  3. To be fair, the “known universe” is a very tiny sliver of even just the galaxy, at least the section that is “known” enough to provide information for extrapolation.
    As for the question, “why haven’t they colonized the universe?”…well, it is very possible there is no way around the difficulty of traveling the vast distances involved in space travel. We like to speculate on how it could be done, but no “warp drive” has ever been developed to the point where we can even test our theories to the point of knowing they’d work.
    Travel to anything but the closest of stars may be impossible, and if none of those stars is suitable for a base of operations, you’d then be stuck.
    The galaxy is huge, we know very little about it yet, and the universe is large beyond our understanding.
    I’m not drawing any conclusions on anything, just yet.

    • But the distances are assumptions which cant be proven . The 13 billion years are assumed to give evolution enough ” time ” to work – as if it ever could . The “red” shifts theory is weakening.

      A scientist tried to date the earth by assuming that the oceans started off with no salt and it had accumulated at today’s rates to what it was around Darwins time . He came to an answer of around 200 million years – everyone applauded his methods but then as scientists slowly realised
      that this was not enough time to pretend that evolution happened they gradually lengthened it from 200 million years to 13 billion !

  4. Thing is they have no evidence that highly intelligent life ever evolved on earth at all but they always talk as if they have – it is a mountain of unproven hypothesis .

  5. ..a directed trans-permia? lol
