Random Liberals

We are random liberals (who knew?). Collectively, we make up the greatest blog in the history of ourselves. We will blog about anything that suits us; mostly politics, with a little bit of religion and randomness to make the blog exciting.

This has little to do with politics or religion, but science, and especially astronomy, absolutely fascinates me. According to this story from the United Kingdom, NASA is set to announce that they have found significant evidence that there once was abundant water on Mars sometime tomorrow (the story says today, but in the UK, it is already March 2). If there was once water, that means that Mars at one time could have sustained life, which right now is next to impossible. I'm not sure what the philosophical significance of this is, but scientifically, it would be huge. I for one hope that someday, we do find life on some other planet. As Ellie Arroway (played by Jodie Foster) says in one of my favorite movies, Contact, if there wasn't life elsewhere, it sure would be a big waste of space.
