there are heaps of arguements. we could say that the settings would have to be absolutly perfect to sustain life. but then, you caould also say that "life" as we know it adapted to our settings. just run through this with me here. just on our own planet
, we have suposedly gone through unbeleivable odds if you say we evolved from bacteria into humans. sure, it could have been billions of years, but everything would have had to be exactly right, or it could have been wrong. when all these scientists say they've created life in possible situations, it is all controlled. but do you think that it could have been like this in real life? oh, and relating back to billions of years, if it did
take that long, it definatly would be too long inbetween seitnent beings being able to communicate with each other.
edit: incase you havn't figured out yet, i do beleive in creation. but thats besides the point. lets just live in ignorence for the short while we are here in XTC and pretent that Sectoids do
exist and that we will all be joining X-com shortly, fending off the starspawn, underwater freaks and micronoids.
