Fun at Colliding Universes
Here are some links to recent posts to Colliding Universes, my blog about differing views of our universe:

Favourite quote on extraterrestrials: "If for some reasons the aliens are actually interested in us, I think they are probably already here, and given a certain level of technology, if would probably be easy to hide from us, even on a daily basis."Yes, I should think so.
