1.  Yeah, but it was really GOOD SHIT, Man!
2.  You plant potatoes, and all the Irish will leave Earth.
3.  And (see above) what the BBC do for humor?
4.  Blanket Mars with dandelion and crabgrass seeds.  They will grow anywhere.
5.  Send Mercury into Mars.  Great rings for a few hundred years and Mars gets an iron core.  Instant magetosphere.
6.  New TV show.  'ST: Launch Baruch'.  If he finds god, we win.  If not, we win.
7.  Blanket Mars with Water Bears to eat the crabgrass.
8.  Blanket Mars with something that eats Water Bears and excretes oxygen.
9.  Launch Amazon Fullfilment Facility.  "Free shipping on planet".

You get a Bugs Bunny comi...............er, bible. 
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

Speaking of habitability elsewhere -- You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login.

Needless to say, they had to assume an atmosphere and an ocean (nearly a given before postulating any sort of life).  What's interesting is that if Proxima Centauri b does have them, there are multiple ways a stable, habitable environment could exist on a tidally locked world with an eleven-day "year", ranging from a ring of habitability between the too-hot area with Proxima perpetually at zenith and the too-cold dark side, to a dynamic water world with sufficient convection to keep at least some of the dark side warm enough for habitability.

You consider that a temper tantrum??  I see, you needed to get Taz in there somehow.  I do like him; have a bobble head Taz by my computer.

That doesn't surprise me in the least.  Then I think of people I know, I see everything I have interacted with them over, integration, not differentiation.

Math joke and liberal joke.

And no, while Gaia is an interesting idea, I am interested in the human infestation primarily.  Certainly ecologically minded neo-pagans should be into the worship of Gaia.

Why can't something like Gaia be acknowledged to exist (if it does) without having to be worshipped? Why this emphasis on worship?

I worship nothing, since nothing is the only thing worthy of my worship.
