Methane Lakes on Saturn's Moon Titan

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft spied giant lakes of methane in the tropic areas of Saturn’s moon Titan. 

And here is a quote from Caitlin Griffith, a Cassini team associate at the University of Arizona, Tucson -

“Methane is a progenitor of Titan’s organic chemistry, which likely produces interesting molecules like amino acids, the building blocks of life.

Cassini’s images collected over the years have also helped scientist to discover that there is heat coming from inside of Saturn! This internal heat is powering the jet streams creating the ever going storms on Saturn’s outer surface. Before this discovery, the jet streams were thought to have been powered by the sun like how is works with Earth’s atmosphere. 

We are still not sure what is exactly inside of Saturn. It was thought to be all gas, but who knows!? Until we discover what lies beneath the thick stormy outer layers of Saturn, we can assume there are alien life forms down there living on methane. There are so many ways that a planet or moon can get what it needs to sustain different types of life. 

Keep is up Cassini, you’re doing good!

Baltic Sea UFO

I am so excited to hear that divers continue exploring the strange saucer shape at the bottom of the Baltic Sea. It could be just a rock, it could be evidence of a sunken city, an old Russian sub or it could be a UFO!

Ancient stone carving of a UFO

Yeah no big deal or anything, but archaeologists found a stone carving in El Fuerte de Samaipata central Bolivia and it’s a drawing of a UFO.

Seriously?! Ok, so for anyone who wants to continue denying ancient aliens, this is making it really hard. If the Mojocoyas culture was carving animals and people in to rocks and were believed to be carving what they saw in their lives, then we can’t deny they saw UFOs!

If I were living back in the day and saw that, I would definitely have to document it in to some stone. Check out the detail of the electrical currents bolting from the bottom of the craft. Apparently the carving dates back to as early as 300 A.D.

In the 16th Century, the Spanish dubbed the rocky mountains covered with geometric designs and carvings of jaguars, snakes and cats, El Fuerte (The Fort). They were told by the Incas inhabitants that this was the place the Gods ascended…

ascended in to Space in their UFOs that is.

The Star Child Skull

Interesting video telling what studies discovered about the alien-like skull they call the Star Child skull.

On the Origins of Life and Extraterrestrials

Illustration by Philip Hood from the book Man after Man 

Just a reminder:  Darwin’s theory of evolution is an idea based on his research and discoveries, but he never claimed that humans evolving from apes was a fact. His findings were noted in his book The Origin of Species, but it never addressed the question of where human’s came from, saying only that “Light will be thrown on the origin of man and his history.” 

I’m slowly researching these theories and also thinking about some theories of my own. I want to know how the heck humans got here!

Say we come in to contact with intelligent life forms from another planet. The aliens will be thinking WE are aliens OR even crazier, we might be thinking the aliens are humans!

Single cell prokaryotes were found in the oldest ancient fossil on Earth which dated back to 3.5 billions years ago. The fossil also had biomarkers of photosynthesis which means plants were growing around this time as well.

That makes sense; Earth forms in space with space rocks containing life forming cells. Everything begins to grow with the help of Earth’s Atmosphere and it’s place in the solar system. Rocks with cells to microorganisms to plants all seems like a smooth life evolving transition.

So how did reptiles get here all of a sudden? I can’t picture them forming from rocks, or plants, or bacteria that got really large and happen to look like a crocodile, but you never know…

Then after the reptiles come more species of animals and then out of no where a human? Way weird. We still don’t know how ancient reptiles and humans got here, but it’s pretty common sense that all life is coming from the “Universe”. That’s where the first rocks containing life it’s self came from.

All these thoughts came to me as I was contemplating how anyone would think that Earth is the only planet with life on it. The universe is infinite and of course there is life in it! It made Earth!

The ground we are standing on, Earth itself, is the biggest piece of evidence we have to discovering extraterrestrials!
