We've arranged a civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology. We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. This is a prescription for disaster. We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces.

Sorry it's been so long since my last entry guys, I've been pretty busy. Anyways here's a cool story that you can take an opinion on. This guy claims to have discovered alien life form fossils in meteorites that he has found. This is really cool, except his paper is being scrutinized by hundreds of researchers right now because he has made claims to this before that didn't pan out. This could be an amazing discovery if it is real however because it would point to actual life in the Universe other than that on Earth. Assuming that this is actually real, what steps should we take next? Is the search for life in space worth the expense? Will we ever know if we share the possibly even the galaxy with other life? Leave opinions in the comments guys.
