Interesting conversation with friends earlier this evening. The usual question came up, especially when one knows he's talking to a fantasy author : "So, do you believe that Aliens exist?"
You do know how large is a grain of sand, I guess? Ok, so if this grain of sand would be our sun in size, then our Galaxy alone would be twice the size of the United States of America and there are hundreds of thousands of Galaxies. We are talking about hundreds of billions of planets out there, in only this universe, and we have no idea how many universes might exist. So yeah, the possibilities of Alien life to actually exist are quite impressive I'd say and it's a real surprise to me that there are still people who want to insist denying that fact, however, all opinions should be respected and acceptable.
