* Day 11 – What if…

Day 11 of Writing Challenge!

Something you always think “What if…” about.

I’ve always wondered if there is life on other planets, other galaxies. I think people who think that we are the only planet with life are ignorant and close minded. Humans as a species are pretty self-indulgent and egotistical. Just because we don’t have the technology to determine if there is life, doesn’t mean there isn’t any. We are so absorbed in our own lives that we can’t fathom there being something else out there; especially something that might be even more “evolved” than us. The fact that Mars can be inhabitable is already proof that it is likely other planets can be lived on as well. Knowing how most of the world is though, even if we did prove life in other galaxies, most people won’t even believe it.

Unfortunately, it will always be a “what if” question. At least in my lifetime. Crazy to think of the day that we could possibly explore space like they do in Star Wars and Star Trek. Call me a dreamer or way to imaginative, but I won’t give up on this idea. I just think it’s selfish for others not to think this and that we are the “supreme species” and the only things that matter in the entire universe. We treat out planet like crap and aren’t thankful for what we have. We could learn from others out there.

Sorry, got a bit off topic. Let me know if you agree or disagree! ##
