The source and evolution of religion within the rationality of humans

This essay will try to briefly explain the source and essence of religion. Before we start our analysis a few concepts on the different forms and characteristics of religions must be introduced. Monotheism is the belief in only one god and polytheism the belief of more than one god as the being(s) superior to the soul or spirit. The only god or the most important one is believed to have created and control the universe.

Polytheistic and monotheistic ideas are considered an evolved form of animism.

The opposition to monotheism or polytheism is pantheism. Pantheism is the idea that god is the universe itself and not a separated entity. Meanwhile deism is the idea that god as a separated entity created the universe but does not communicate to people or spirits. This in theism is the idea that god (or gods) as separated entities communicate with people and spirits.

By atheism we refer to the idea that god (or gods) does not exist and there are only the laws of physics.

On the other hand agnosticism is the idea that nothing can be said about the existence of god (or gods).

Unlike atheists or pantheists, agnostics do not deny the existence of god (or gods) they just avoid making any theories about it. Finally spiritualism is the belief that life after death does exist and materialism is the belief that life after death does not exist.

After this brief review of the main concepts we will start analyzing how religion has evolved. The most ancient form of religion developed by humanity is called animism. This was based on the idea that not only people, but also animals, plants and nature objects have soul or spirit which survives death. The worship of these spirits is the most basic form of religion. Old animism did not include the concept of god (or gods) but most modern animism contains either pantheistic or deist ideas. The idea of a human spirit started as an explanation for dreaming (temporal death) and death (eternal dreaming). It was reinforced lately by the idea of life after death. Nevertheless animist ideas started as a human explanation for diseases and nature phenomena.

Later on time we could see the development of a more advanced form of religion called shamanism. This is the name of the practices of a shaman as a healer and magician. It is based on animism, being the shaman the connection with the spiritual world. Nomadic people (hunters, gatherers and pastoral) practiced shamanism. As people become sedentary (agricultural) religion evolves to create an organized priesthood and separates itself from medicine and other practices. After that the figure of the shaman disappears or loses its importance. This is the time when religions start becoming more organized institutions and set of ideas. The more ancient of the modern world religions are the so called Indian and Chinese religions. Later on arrived the so called Abrahamic religions.

The so called Indian or Dharmic religions are the religions originated in India, i.e. Hinduism and Buddhism. Hinduism has always been polytheistic and Buddhism is agnostic, however both believed in the concepts of rebirth and karma. The idea of rebirth originated in the Indus Valley civilization (ancient Dravidians) before the arrival of the Aryans. However both the ancient Dravidians and the Aryans were polytheistic. Hinduism is the mixture of the Ancient Dravidian and the Aryan religious beliefs. Karma is a concept developed within Hinduism. However karma is a concept common both to Hinduism and Buddhism. This is that the effect of past thoughts and actions continues during subsequent lives. Hence Karma has a moral approach. Another way to call the law of karma is the law of cause and effect, i.e. it essentially means that what goes around comes around.

Buddhism originated when Buddha wanted to “purify” Hinduism by making it more like the original Dravidian religion (i.e. no caste system and more social equality) and by incorporating a solution for the continuous process of death and rebirth by achieving Nirvana. Nirvana or more correctly said the search for Nirvana or enlightenment in Buddhism attempts to break the life-death cycle (rebirth) and becoming one with the universe, this is to be absorbed or become part of the outer universe. Moreover according to Buddhists, Nirvana means to stop the rebirth cycle by reaching perfection. However in a more pragmatic approach, Nirvana is just life auto realization and is always perfectible. Hence it is indeed basically a continuous process of self-improvement and evolution. Nirvana is attained through the practice of the Buddhist law. The path to Nirvana is based on practice of compassion and no attachment. The last goal is self-realization and happiness.

We can see how strongly related to the idea of karma is the concept of Reincarnation, also known as rebirth. According to this idea although rebirth is always a choice for any spirit, the opportunity is not easy to get and is always based on karmic conditions. As a matter of fact many spirits might need to rebirth in more primitive planets or dimensions than earth because of karmic conditions. They might eventually rebirth on earth again and after that in more advanced planets or dimensions if they qualify.
Another aspect of Buddhism concerns the idea of Cosmic Realms, i.e. the mental states in human life according to Buddhism. Most Buddhist texts simplify them into nine basic mental states, though they recognize many more. These states are a reminder of how we should not think or behave if we want to enter the path to Nirvana, and of course to avoid all the negative responses that we will get from these actions and thoughts, i.e. karma. Traditional Buddhism also portraits these states as dimensions where people can rebirth.

The so called Chinese religions are the religions originated in China, i.e. Taoism and Confucianism. In the past like today people in China were polytheistic and believed in afterlife. Taoism started as a philosophy based on the Lao Tze philosophical writings -Tao Te Ching-. Combine with local beliefs it evolved into religion and Chinese medicine. On the other hand Confucianism originated in the writings of a bureaucrat called Confucius. He wrote extensively about the ideal form of government and society. Like Lao Tze, he did not intend to create a religion. The incorporation of his beliefs into laws and customs combined with local beliefs evolved into religion. Although both religions are currently polytheistic, the original Taoism is still considered pantheistic and orthodox Confucianism remains agnostic. Neither religion deals with the idea of life after death.

Hence the original Taoism is the no polytheistic but the pantheistic one. The basis of Taoism is the idea of Tao (also known as the Way), which is difficult to explain. A near explanation would that Tao is the cosmic or universal order. However Taoists mention how difficult is to try to describe the Tao and just try to experience it. Another important concept is the idea of Ying and Yang as the only forces shaping the universe. In the universe there are always neutral or mixed forces or energy along with pure positive and negative forces or energy (i.e., Ying and Yang). Furthermore it is important to emphasize the idea of universal change since no matter, force or energy -be it positive, negative or mixed- remains like that forever. The only permanent thing in the universe is change. Also the idea of passivity and acceptance of the Tao is not exclusive to Taoism. It happens in all religions, i.e. passivity and acceptance of god’s wishes or people’s destiny. However the main difference with Taoism is that acceptance of the will of the universe is not a moral concept, but a natural and more philosophical concept. This makes it very different from other religions, like the ones with human-created laws of morality (supposedly given to the “prophets” by God) implying that therefore these are god’s wishes or people’s destiny.

The Tao or Way is attained through the belief and practice of the fundamentals of Taoism. The last goal is self-realization and happiness. It is simply to be in harmony with the universe or cosmic order and to improve our energy (Chi). The Way looks for the joy of life and “active inaction”. This means to take control of your life through accepting things just as they are and trying to do the best out of them. The idea is that if things must be changed, they will be eventually, but first we must accept them as they are. The so called Abrahamic religions are Christianity, Islam and Judaism, the three only major monotheistic religions. They all believe in the existence of a personal human-like God. The name comes from Abraham, the first known monotheistic religious leader and considered the founder of Judaism, from which Christianity and Islam originated. Before him the Jews were polytheistic, like everybody else in that time. Abrahamics believe in the idea of life after death, but not in rebirth or karma.

In Christianity the goal is the search for salvation. Salvation is attained through the practice of the Gospel. This is essentially to imitate Jesus life and behavior as describe in the Gospel. This includes the practice of compassion, unselfishness, humbleness and especially an unconditional love for God, also known as the Lord or the Father. The final goal is self-realization and happiness. Christians believe that the only god judges all sins and has the right to absolve them. They also believe that the only God is the creator of the universe and the father of Jesus. Hence Jesus is not just another prophet but Gods own son. In addition God is the only that can forgive sins and judge people, especially on weather they will go to heaven or hell after death. Judaism and Islam are similar to Christianity in many aspects and beliefs but strongly disagree with it in the rejection to the idea of Jesus as Gods son, as according to them God cannot have any sons or children whatsoever. In addition both the Torah and the Koran include rules and norms for almost anything in life while the Gospel does not and leaves more gaps open to self discretion. This is due to Jesus disdain for everything “earthly” and a major emphasis on the “heavenly”. As a result Christianity has evolved as a more tolerant religion that the other two.

Finally we must consider the beliefs of the atheists. They claim the nonexistence of God. Their argument is that if you blink to the idea of the nonexistence of God, then look at the way humanity has approached the idea of God throughout the times. The concept and characteristics of God in primitive times is not the same as the later Jewish God, and even the Jewish God characteristics differ from the later Christian God, which also differs from the Muslim God. According to atheists every man or religion creates its own God (or gods). Hence people decide what kind of God they want and then the concept of him will change as people change and evolve. Atheists believe that the idea of God we have today is different than the idea of God we have say one thousand years ago, and will be different one thousand years from now. Furthermore in closer analysis every person has her own concept of God. Every person’s concept of God is not only different but usually reflects individual characteristics and personal ideas that keep changing throughout the person’s life. Hence this is strong evidence, atheists say, that somehow we all create our own God (or gods). In other words our idea of God is only the reflection of in what level of psychological and sociological evolution we stand–which are changing. So they claim why should anybody accept the characteristics of God that someone else has created? Who was Abraham, Jesus, Mohammed or anybody to decide how God was? It was their God. But for example Buddha never mentioned God explicitly, only Nirvana. Here atheists attack again by questioning who is to say that Nirvana is the only way to self-improvement? In the same order of ideas atheists question other beliefs. For example Hindus say we are condemned to reincarnation. But who is to say that we are condemned to reincarnation? Their final conclusion is that men has created and create religions and after all since they were just men, all religions are faulty. They claim that the idea that man created God and not the other way around is proved by the many different and always changing psychological and sociological definitions of God. That is why our God changes and evolves as our personality evolves and as society evolution affects our own conceptions and personal evolution. However the more open minded atheists acknowledge that all main religions show a way to self development and self improvement, but it is important to find the path to happiness and self realization that really fits our interests and goals in life. It can be in the Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Taoist or any other path, but we must be happy and fully satisfied with it, otherwise there is no purpose in having such religion unless we just want to be victims of absurd fanaticism and superstition.

Another idea of the atheists is the concept of survival instinct sublimation (SIS). SIS is based on the concept of the need of humans to believe that there is life after death, even though there is no scientific proof of that. They claim this is supposed to happen because human beings as rational creatures have sublimated the survival instinct that is actually present in all irrational creatures. Since we normally are not exposed to life threatening problems as animals do, forcing them to develop certain physical evolutionary mechanisms for survival, we have canalized this instinct into a desire for living permanently. Hence the idea of life after death or “eternal life”, and also the equivalent idea of reincarnation or “rebirth”.
Finally, although not the goal of this essay is to explain the difference between philosophy and religion. Philosophyis simply a framework of ideas - too often an intellectual exercise that contains no motivation to cause the observer to act. This is not to detract from the fine efforts of my favorite philosophers. I personally enjoy serious philosophy (Wittgenstein, Russell and others). But there is a clear distinction between the philosophical endeavor and religion. Religion is the transformation of philosophy into behavior. It is the adherence to a framework of ideas so strongly that we cannot look upon the world without consideration of them.

Water in the Moon!!!!

BUZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!! Hello guys! I just thought that even if I told you that I wasn't going to write anything until next week I couldn't retrieve for this last post of the week. The great great great news are the NASA has finally found water on the Moon! yeah! not only in Mars but now in the Moon, right next to us. Isn't that cool!!! I bet it is!! well people i'm so happy that I could tell you this. here is the link to a couple good stories about it, I thought you should read this storyand here is the BadAstronomer story. If you like you can go to NASA for more information.

A Place For Science in Proceedings

Hello, This week I won't be posting any updates because I have proceedings for my U.S Visa Interview. On Monday of next week I will be back with new updates.

Mouse cells controlled by light

Image from:
Mice! who doesn't hate them? an animal going under the nickname "disgusting bacteria-laden" a terrorist little bastard who toddles around and leaves his excrement all over the place! infecting everything! Now, namely what the fellows of UCSF researchers have genetically encoded mouse cells to respond to light. This little creature aren't just a carrier of bacteria, but now they respond to light. At least the good thing about this, is that whenever you turn off the light of your house, you might enconter a lighting-mice in the dark.

This discovery in my opinion its a serious advance in science, even though the scares and screems that can cause this little creature are absolutely horrible. If you find yourself in the night, like per example if you going to the bathroom in the middle of the night, the great advantage is that if you want to kill the little F&%$! you can find him rapidly armed with a broom.

Not only this discovery can help you during the night, but like the article said, it can safe you from darkness.

Sometimes I ask myself, why do we blame so much this little creature when they help us discover new things in medecine? Our ignorance sometimes clouds our common sense and makes us think the worst scenarios with this little creatures. But precisely the horrible scenarios is what perhaps makes researchers to find new answers for new or incurable diseases.

Scary Music Is Scarier With Your Eyes Shut | La musica de Miedo da Mas miedo con los ojos cerrados

We all know that scary music is scary when our brains associates the music with a terrible image, but recent studies says that listening scary music with your eyes shut can actually be scarier. This discovery might have the answer for some brain diseases like Alzheimer or Parkinson as strange as it sounds.

Todos sabemos que la música que da miedo, da miedo cuando nuestros cerebros asocian la música con una imagen terrible, pero estudios recientes dicen que escuchar música de miedo con los ojos cerrados puede te puede aterrar mucho mas. Este descubrimeinto puede que tenga la respuesta a algunas enfermedades cerebrales como el Alzheimer o el Parkinson por mas extraño que suene.

Radiation an Issue To Make it to Mars | Radiacion un Problema Para Llegar Marte

Wow! defenetly NASA is working hard in the problem of going to Mars, now things seem to get much more complex, not only the budget isn't enough to think cutting the projects to send astronauts to Mars, but the insidious threat of space radiation in the form of galactic cosmic rays could keep astronauts confined much closer to home. According to Newscietist article things isn't going to get much more easy.

Wow! definitivamente NASA esta trabajando duro en el problema de ir a Marte, ahora las cosas parecen ponerse mas complejas, no solo el presupuesto es insuficiente para cortar los proyectos para enviar astronautas a Marte, pero los indicios de la amenaza de la radiación espacial en forma de rayos cósmicos galácticos puede que mantengan a los astronautas mucho mas cerca de casa. De acuerdo con el articulo de Newscientist las cosas no se van a poner mas fáciles.

Creating or destroying entropy in a small system | Creando o destruyendo la entropia de pequeños sistemas

The second law of thermodynamics forbids a decrease in entropy of an isolated system. However, in statistical mechanics this strict prohibition is softened to a probabilistic statement, which allows transient decreases in entropy to occur with a small probability. The likelihood of such fluctuations is vanishingly small in macroscopic bodies, but in smaller systems, such as a stretched DNA molecule, they can actually be observed.

La segunda ley de la termodinamica prohíbe una disminución en entropia en un sistema aislado. Sin embargo, en mecánica estadística esta prohibición estricta se ablanda con una declaración probabilistica, en el cual permite un disminución trascendente en la entropia para que ocurra en una pequeña probabilidad. La probabilidad de tal fluctacion es evanecentemente pequeño en cuerpos macroscopicos, pero en sistemas pequeños, tal y como una molécula de ADN estirada, ellas en realidad se pueden observar.

This possibility has motivated recent work on fluctuation theorems, which compare the probability of a system reducing its entropy (over short times) in out-of-equilibrium processes to those in which the entropy increases. In a paper appearing in Physical Review E, Arnab Saha of the S. N. Bose National Center For Basic Sciences in Kolkata, India, and Sourabh Lahiri and Arun Jayannavar, of the Institute of Physics, in Bhubaneswar, India, build on this work and study the total entropy produced in a simple system that is driven out of equilibrium. They model a Brownian particle in a harmonic trap and consider the change in entropy when a time-dependent external force is applied to the particle, or the trap itself is moved in an arbitrary manner.

Esta posibilidad ha motivado a los trabajos recientes sobre la fluctuación de los teoremas, los cuales comparan la probabilidad de un sistema de reducción de la entropía (en tiempos cortos) en fuera de equilibrio a los procesos en los que la entropía aumenta. En un artículo que apareció en la revista Physical Review E, Arnab Saha de la SN Bose Centro Nacional de Ciencias Básicas en Kolkata, India, y sourabh Lahiri y Arun Jayannavar, del Instituto de Física, en Bhubaneswar, India, basará en este trabajo el estudio de la entropía total producida en un sistema simple que es expulsado de equilibrio. EN el cual ellos crean un modelo browniano de partículas en una trampa armónica y consideraran la variación de entropía cuando un tiempo-dependiente es la fuerza externa aplicada a la partícula, o la trampa de la misma se mueve de manera arbitraria.

In nonequilibrium steady states, the detailed fluctuation theorem relates the probabilities of observing entropy changes of equal magnitude but opposite sign. Saha et al. show, somewhat surprisingly, that the Brownian particles also obey this theorem even in the nonstationary, transient regime, provided the system is prepared in equilibrium.

En estados constantes de no equilibrio, la detallada teoría de fluctacion relaciona las probabilidades de observar los cambios de entropia que misma magnitud pero de signo opuesto. Saha et al. muestra, de alguna manera sorprendente , las partículas Brownianas también obedecen este teorema aun en estado no estacionario, régimen transigente, siempre que el sistema este preparado en el equilibrio.

These and other advances given in this paper should stimulate the analysis of thermal fluctuations in small systems, and their application in determining free energy differences.Ron Dickman

Este y otros avances dados en este papel el análisis en fluctuaciones termales en pequeños sistemas, y su aplicación en determinar diferencias en energía libre.- Ron Dickman

First Detailed Photos of Atoms | Primeras Fotos Detalladas De Atomos

We know that an electron is impossible to see it in its exact position and its exact velocity,but unlike electrons, Atoms are much more easy to detect, they are made from sub atomic particles such as electrons, protons and neutrons. Scientist have been struggling to see an atom's internal structure directly from many years,and of course, the only way that scientist could see it were to map out a material's atomic structure in a mathematical sense, using imaging techniques.

Sabemos que un electrón es imposible de observar en su posición exacta y su velocidad, pero a diferencia de un electrón, los átomos son mucho mas fáciles de detectar, ellos estan hechos de partículas sub atómicas como electrones, protones y neutrones. Científicos lucharon para lograr observar la estructura interna de un átomo directamente durante varios años, y por supuesto, la única manera que los científicos pudrieran verlo es mapeando la estructura del material atómico en un sentido matemático, usando técnicas de imagines.

Ukrainian researchers at the Kharkov Institute for Physics and Technology in Kharkov, Ukraine. Have manage to see directly the structure of a real atom.

Richard Dawkins and Carl Sagan: Will the universe become the next religion? | Richard Dawkins y Carl Sagan:¿Acaso el universo sera la próxima religión

Here is some about popularizer of Science Carl Sagan along with Evolutionary Biologist Richard Dawkins, answering and questioning about Religion and the Universe in one particular subject. This is an article I found from The Daily Galaxy from Casey Kazan.

Aquí encontré algo sobre el divulgador de la ciencia Carl Sagan junto con el Biólogo Evolucionista Richard Dawkins, respondiendo y cuestionando acerca la Religión y el Universo en un solo tema en particular. Este es un articulo que encontré en el The Daily Galaxy de Casey Kazan.

(Article translated in Spanish, for English click here)

En su clásico en el lugar del planeta tierra en el universo, Pale Blue Dot, Carl Sagan se pregunto como es que ninguna religión importante a mirado a la ciencia y allá dicho " Esto es mejor que lo que pesamos. El universo es mas grande que lo que nuestros profetas hayan dicho,grande, mas sutil, mas elegante. Pero en vez ellos dicen, "No. no. no! Mi dios es un dios pequeño, y yo quiero que se quede de esta manera."

Carl Sagan soñaba con un mundo en el que una nueva religión que destacó el asombro y la admiración y la magnificencia del universo tal como se revela por la ciencia "podría ser capaz de sacar adelante las reservas de reverencia y temor no aprovechado por las religiones convencionales."

En una vena similar, biólogo evolucionario Richard Dawkins debate al físico Lawrece Krauss (" La física de Star Trek") pregunta y responde alguna de las grandes preguntas sobre religión y nuestra existencia en la tierra.

Un enfoque clave en el impacto de Darwin y "El origen de la especies" en el pensamiento moderno. Dawkins es el "Charles Simonyi Professor of the Public understanding of Science" en Oxford University. He first came to prominence con su libro en el año 1976 "El gen egoista", el cual popularizo en vista el gen-céntrico de la evolución e introdujo el termino "meme" en el léxico. En 1982, el hizo una contribución muy citada a la ciencia de la evolución con su teoría, presentado en su libro The exteded phenotype, eso efecto phenotipico no se limitan al cuerpo de un organismo, sino que pueden extenderse en el medio ambiente, incluyendo en los cuerpos de otros organismos. El desde entonces a vendido bastantes libros populares "best-seeling", y apareció en varios programas de televisión y radio, sobre biología evolucionaria, creacionismo, y religión incluyendo El Gen Egoísta, River Out of Eden, y el mas reciente,Destejer el arco iris y El espejismo de Dios, un best-seller del New York Times.

Dawkins se ve el mismo como un " religioso no creyente" en el cual su carrera a girado en el punto de visa de Darwin en el cual todo se "producido por leyes actuando sobre nosotros" descrita con tanta energía en el Origen de las Especies:

"Así, desde la guerra de la naturaleza, desde la hambre y la muerte, el objeto mas exaltado el cual son capaces de concebir, a saber, la producción de los animales mas altos, los sigue directamente. Hay grandeza en esta concepción de vida, con sus tantos poderes, de haber inspirado originalmente en unas cuantas forma o en una; y eso, mientras este planeta a ido girando acorde con la ley fija de la gravedad, desde lo tan simple un comienzo de fines de formas mas hermosas y mas maravillosa han sido, y han sido, evolucionada"

Skepticism for UFO files | Escepticismo para los archivos OVNIS

UFO's, Aliens, First contacts, Abductions, all of this reviews are part of a quest that we humans have been questioning since the Mayan civilization. Are we alone in the Universe? The quest to find this answer of this intrepid question, is the work of SETI and Ufologist. Not instant, this work has not shown significant results for extraterretial life.

OVNIS, Extraterrestres, Primeros contactos, Abducciones, todas estas reseñas son parte de una búsqueda que nosotros los humanos nos hemos cuestionado desde la civilización Maya. ¿Estamos solos en el Universo? La busqueda para encontrar la respuesta a esta pregunta, es el trabajo de SETI y los Ufologos.

People with skepticism in this matter writes articles like this, articles with a point of view less ignorant than the point of view of Creationism.

Gente con escepticismo en este tema escribe artículos como este, artículos con un punto de vista menos ignorante que el de los Creacionistas.

Often we find that science analyzes each case of UFO sighting and mainly the 93% of all cases has a lack of rational explanation, I personally think that the other 7% of the cases are cases like this.

Regulartemente encontramos que la ciencia analiza los avistamientos de OVNIS y principalmente el 93% de todos los casos carecen de explicación racional, yo personalmente pienso que el otro 7% de los casos son como este.

Does this mean I don't believe in extraterrestrial life? In my principle believe in this particular subject, dogmatic assumptions are just feeding human imagination with significant results from part of the ignorant mind, but of course as an intelligent person I can't imagine that in every galaxy of the this Universe,or in every star of any galaxy cannot exist other life forms, or let's just say Intelligent life.

¿Esto significa que no creo en vida extraterrestre? En mi creencia sobre este tema en particular, suposiciones dogmáticas esta alimentando la imaginación humana con resultados significantes por parte de las mentes ignorantes, pero por supuesto como una persona inteligente no puedo imaginar que en cada galaxia de este universo, o en cada estrella de este universo no existan otras formas de vida, o por lo menos vida inteligente.

Believe it or not, and even wanting to believe it or not is just a matter of a "100% substantial evidence" in this matter of extraterrestrial cases.

Créanlo o no, e inclusive que quieran creerlo o no, es tan solo un problema de un "100% de evidencia substancial"

In a video a saw a couple weeks ago from popularizer of science Professor Michio Kaku said,

En un vídeo que vi hace unas cuantas semanas atrás de el divulgador de la ciencia Michio Kaku dijo,

"Consider ourself's like ants,now, make yourself this question, do we even step on ants if they're so insignificant to us? Now imagine that Advance Alien Civilizations think of ourself like ants, why would they bother to step on us?"

"Consideremos que nosotros somos hormigas, ahora, háganse esta pregunta, ¿Acaso nosotros pisamos a las hormigas si son tan insignificantes para nosotros? Ahora imagínense que una civilizacion extraterrestre avanzada piensen de nosotros como hormigas, ¿Por que ellos se molestarían en pisarnos?

Every person that claims to see a UFO or a Gray little man must not be ignored or even think that this person is crazy in my opinion, why? Because just like professor Kaku said,

Toda persona que aclama ver visto un OVNI o un hombrecillo gris debe no ser ignorado o por lo menos pensar que esta loco en mi opinión, ¿por que? Por que tal y como el profesor Kaku dijo,

"If they are out there or even among us, the only thing you can do with this information is not make it public, because masses of people are completely dumb".

"Si ellos están allá afuera o inclusive entre nosotros, lo único que puedes hacer con esta información es no hacerla publica, por que las masas son completamente tontas".

I do think like the professor in this matter, because the population itself , would collapse! If this information is notice to the public media with significant results of such sightings. In this case what we have to do is be skeptic to be cautious but not ignorant and incautious.

Yo pienso como el profesor en este problema, por que la población misma ¡colapsaría!Si esta información se da a conocer a los medios públicos con resultados significantes de tales avistamientos. En este caso lo que debemos hacer es ser escéptico para ser precavido mas no ignorante e incauto.

If some day you or let's say the world witnesses a first contact with Alien life forms, you will change your perspective instantly, I believe that if we have a government that protects you, in the logical sense is completely normal that they keep this as a "secret".

Si algún día tu o digamos que el mundo sea testigo de un primer contacto con formas de vida extraterrestre, tu cambiaras tu perspectiva instantáneamente, yo creo que si tenemos un gobierno que nos protege, en el sentido lógico es perfectamente normal que nos dejen esto como un "secreto".

Surfing With Gravity | Surfeando Con la Gravedad

Surf, is a extreme sport of decades, in which is required the use of a board and very high waves of seawater, this eclectic combination is without doubt a wonderful experience.The curious thing is that this eloquent sport has been practiced not only for fun but for scientific purposes, U.S Scientist are studiying the beginning of cartography for a so called " Gravitational Tubes". Not only this exceptional concept of surfing the galaxy sounds very weird but it might safe space travel.

Surf, es un deporte extremo de décadas, en el cual se requiere del uso de una tabla y olas del mar de gran tamaño, esta combinación ecléctica es sin duda una experiencia increíble. Lo curioso es que este deporte tan elocuente a sido practicado no tan por simple diversión si no también para propósitos científicos, científicos Estadounidenses están comenzando a estudiar la cartografía de unos llamados " Tubos Gravitacionales". No solo este concepto excepcional de surfear la galaxia suena bastante extraño pero tal vez salve los viajes al espacio.
