You're all so silly. Of course aliens exist. "Doctor Who" is a documentary.



Fuck I wish that were true.

You do realize it actually originated as "educational" material, right?

...I did not. I did just find my favourite quote ever, from someone talking about the violence in Doctor Who. They said it was "sired by a horse-laugh out of a nightmare". Cool beans.

Quote from: Wikipedia
The programme was intended to be educational and for family viewing on the early Saturday
evening schedule.   Initially, it alternated stories set in the past,  which taught  younger
audience members about history, with stories set either in the future or in outer space to
teach them about science. This was also reflected in the Doctor's original companions, one
of whom was a science teacher and another a history teacher.

Aces! Well, when I make it, there'll be none of that boring history and science guff - just good ol' fashioned homoerotic undertones. :love5:

I change my opinion. I don't know what to believe. I'm confused.

Given the size of the universe, and the time span it's existed over (and will exist over), it seems pretty much inevitable to me that there'd be alien life out there somewhere at some point besides that which has developed here on Earth.

However, given the size of the universe, and the time span it's existed over (and will exist over), it seems to me that "incredibly unlikely" doesn't even begin to convey just how unlikely it would be that such life would exist, be spacefaring, and have found and travelled to Earth during the ridiculously brief period humans have been around.

most of the evidence  for alien encounters would hint at something much closer to home than extra-terrestrial.... they share many features with supernatural encounters recorded throughout history (including the visitations to joan of arc and the visions at lourdes) and if not entirely an internal projection.... may well be to do with something that is as much native to earth as we are.....even in modern sightings, the simple fact that the "aliens seem to not need environment suits, are seen to eat and biologically interact with humans suggests that they are not extraterrestrial at all.... personally I think that whatever it is, is actively glamoured by the imaginations of the viewers.... the reality obscured by illusion
