They lived in simpler times (over 400 years ago) ... some people still do.  But why the hate?

It's not for the people currently living in simpler times. It's for the people enjoying all the fruits of the age we live in that still give Jesus credit for all of it. They should know better.

They are culturally schizoid.  First generation immigrant Muslims living in the West have the same problem.  Of course even intergenerationally we see it with natives in the West.

most people can't handle large numbers, a trillion to them is not much larger than ten thousand, and ten thousand is not big at all…stupid atheists..
A humans desire to live is exceeded only by their willingness to die for another. Even god cannot equal this magnificent sacrifice. No god has the right to judge them.-first tenant of the Panotheust

That's an example of  how some of my cousins think right now. Their children are stuck in a cycle of poverty because the parents won't let them go to real schools.

People can believe what they want. Just don't base legislation, public education, or public policy on religion.

Far better to base government on free use of ganja ... at least the government folks will be more mellow ... not likely to start nuclear wars to increase their Foundation kitty.

As the technology put into our telescopes improve, we will be able to see vastly more details in our universe. There are probably vastly more galaxies in our universe than just 2 trillion, but we will not know until these new telescopes become available. Within the next decade, the next generation of telescopes will be out, and we will be able to see details on planets within a certain amount of light-years. A confirmed planet that will be able to be observed is Alpha Centauri B, but it won't be limited to planets, we will pick up details in our universe as well, further increasing the knowledge of how many galaxies there are in our universe.

Think of all the stars and planets that must be out there. The possibility of other life being out there is very high, the possibility of us observing it ever? Very, very low.

2 trillion, is two hundred thousand loads, of the number of paper bills in this image(12 forklift-palates of hundred dollar bills, not ones):


And that's the number of GALAXIES! I wonder what that translates to, in terms of STARS!

I see each one as a spin of the cosmic roulette-wheel, that blessed us with the peculiar, random convergence of conditions, that  produced and sustained life on our planet.

In others words, there is 14 billion years of history we can't see yet.
14 billion years, since the visible universe began. But who's to say that's the only one. There could be a vast number of other multi-galactic masses out there, exerting a weak gravitational force on our own. Some miight even be older.

Ah, there is the money that the R-party "lost accidentally" during the occupation of Iraq.  Can we get it back?

We can "see" the 3.5K radiation ... so that is scientific.  Attempts have been made ... so far failed ... so "see" earlier than that (gravitational wave polarization).  As far as other stuff goes, if you can't even "see" it ... it isn't scientific.
