    Anyone watch QI? I thought this was quite an interesting idea from Arthur C Clarke in terms of 'alien' material/sewage from space and the microbes it contains being the bringer of life to the planet. Any thoughts and how do you reckon life emerged on earth? Are we the only living organisms in the universe??

    Hmm interesting idea..

    I'm away to sit on the loo and think about it.

    I suspose we could be the creation of mutated alien dog turd blasted off into space which arrived here, yes.

    hehe :)

    but I have thought long and hard about this and come to the conclusion that we might find out where we are descended from but will never know what the universe is, what is "beyond" it and what was before.

    I gave up thinking about this ages ago....around about the same time it became legal for me to drink.
