I wouldn't say I believe it, per se, but I've always found bubble theory (a kind of multiverse theory, if you cba to look it up) interesting.

Are you one of those conspiracy nuts that thinks that absolutely EVERYONE had a hand in his death? Fucking mental cases.

Probably aliens. I don't know for sure if they're out there but I believe they are. Although the nature of their biology/culture/history/technological advancements isn't something I'd speculate about.

It has more to do with my worldview anyway. I'm attracted to the idea of the universality of experience, shared goals in exploration, and the proliferation, dissemination, and preservation of culture.

Which is kinda hypocritical of me since I'm not familiar with every culture/language on this planet in the first place and you could say certain places I haven't even heard of might seem entirely "alien" to my sensibilities. Perhaps in my eyes, the vast distinction between species and the retention of their common pursuits could prove something to the rest of the world.

I dunno, this is the stuff of fiction. It's pleasant, life-affirming, unprovable, and I have my doubts about it. Call it a semi-informed humanist theism.

I agree. Somewhere out there, an entire race of hot blue alien ladies with immaculate breasts and tentacles for hair exists that get off on doing it with humans

That's pretty much what you meant, right?

I don't think believing in the existence of aliens is outlandish these days.

I find multiverse theory to be plausible, if a bit unprovable.

Some of my ideas are sympathetic of Pantheism. Insofar that I think that if there existed anything that could be most aptly described as 'God', it would be nature and existence itself. And that in such a scenario we are a part of God and God is a part of us. It makes me feel a bit less insignificant and more closely connected to the world I live in.

Are aliens really an "far out" view?

I think it'd be far out to believe they visited us, but with the sheer size of the universe I think you'd have to be ignorant of scale to believe there's not another single form of life out there.

I'd say it's an atypical, out of field claim or simply an eyebrow raiser at dinner parties, but if by 'far out' you meant inconceivable, then probably not at all.

Erm....yeah like others have said, I wouldn't say this far out', but yeah I'd say I believe it's a certainty that aliens exist too. Not like they 'might' exist, but night on 100% they exist. Not necessarily saying they've visited us or anything though (probably not), but somewhere in another galaxy or another universe there is intelligent life.

Given our knowledge of space and the universe, it say it's more far out for some to believe that we're alone.
#17
due to the sheer size and scope of the universe i'd say it is very probable that other lifeforms have come to exist

other than that i don't really believe in much

idk tbh, i don't really think about any of that stuff often
like it's not that i don't believe any of it, it's just that i don't ever think about it so i can't really say i believe in it

i do have some weird superstitious tendencies, but i kinda half-ass them
like whenever i think "man it would be terrible if *bad thing* happened to *person i like*" and then rather than knocking on wood i'll like close my eyes and imagine a hand knocking on wood it's weird but it's like an impulse thing at this point, i don't do it on purpose, it just happens

This isn't that exciting and I'm not sure how far out it is, but I actually do believe that in 20-30 years, we'll look back at sugar the way we do tobacco now. Nowhere near as bad, but essentially just that we'll realise it's a lot worse for us than we initially realised. In the quantities that some people consume it today that is.

Obviously it's nigh on impossible to completely avoid it, but I just see people with regular (as opposed to the diet versions) cokes/pepsis and the like now and can't help but think 'what on earth are you doing'.

I wouldn't say i believe in reincarnation, but of the theories of the afterlife, to me that seems the most plausible

My view is in the complete reverse.

I think it's feasible that the energy that makes up your body now, can end up in the future being a part of the structure of another creature. Simply because energy cannot be created or destroyed.

I believe in aliens. I also believe that humans lived with Bigfoot up until about 1000 years ago, which is why the myth is so prevalent in Native American culture. I believe that the CIA killed JFK. I believe that our current universe is just the latest version in a giant series of Big Bangs and Big Implosions.

strong fat.lard thread

i believe that death is a never ending loop DMT trip
srs imagine when you die, those few seconds between being alive and a corpse, your brain goes from traveling to different to infinite universes and experiences, to the point where your "consciousness" gets locked in this moment, and it's all you will ever know and remember of life on earth...
idk just watch the movie enter the void and you'll know what i mean ...

i also like the idea of other worldly alien civilizations thriving in maybe not in our galaxy, but other galaxies or universes for sure, and i am positive they are at least as intelligent as dogs or cats or can function like snakes or lizards at least.

hell i even believe dinosaurs and humans were alive around the same time
i mean, how else do you explain the lack of pre-human bones? the ones that survived got away, the ones that didn't go destroyed like 90% of dinosaur bones
and if you look at the oldest archaeological excavations, predating finding bones, almost all of the paintings on the walls and clay/mud pottery, etc have depictions of dinosaurs on them
there is no way you can imagine something like that without seeing it....

(but then again humans are quite creative, we even invented "god"...)

Obligatory Giorgio Tsoukalos meme:



I agree it seems arrogant of humans to think that is the vast expanse of the universe there is not other intelligent life forms out there.

Hindu and other cultures explained the universe as like a "breathing God" that expands and contracts, which science just calls Big Bang and Big Crunch.

I believe they were visited by an alien species in human "pre-history", but due to the nature of space-time travel, if it does happen again, it wont for a long, long time.

I think their religious beliefs are mostly true in allegorical sense, even if a few things might have changed (like when you play "the phone game" as a kid)
