We seek intelligent life forms on other planets for one reason: Good people are hard to come by here on earth.
Scientists, researchers and hobbyist astronomers look for earth-like lifeforms on planets across our galaxy because there is a shortage of good people on our own planet. We know that evil destroys itself, and that life on earth is on the road to ultimate self-destruction.
If it is destined for hell, it’s been here on earth first: the ignorant, the selfish, the critical, the bullies, the criminal and the demeaning members of the human race who bring menace to all those who appear weaker than them.
Pluto anyone? It’s the farthest planet from earth.
And that is a good thing.
