I remeber, back in '76... my mother was a microbioligist... when first papers (no Internet back then) on the Viking probe became available, she came to me (I was just a student then, at the local University) and she said "see, there is life out there...) Later, however, NASA denied validity of the Viking tests... and I think my mother was a little bit sad because of it... nobody at that time doubted NASA's credibility...
I sincerely detest and refuse most of conspiration theories. In this case, however, I think we are being kept in the dark intentionally. And I hate to say it, but yes: NASA does everything to make us think that all the planets "out there" are dead pieces of junk, only Earth was capable of supporting life...
You may all laugh at me, with reason maybe, but IMHO NASA is run by the same Presbiterians (skull and bones guys) as the whole US (and other nations'governments) is. To them, it is unthikable that life could spring out independetly and not even in the prescribed six days...as the Bible says.
I am beginning to get scared, not because of the wild things out there, but because of what we have on this planet. I am starting to belive that there are people who withold data intentionally.
What are their's motivatons, I pretend not to know. Religious, maybe. I rememeber from one source how one of (renaissance) Popes exclaimed "Now religion is reall a good bussiness!
Is that it?
