I'm not a very religious person myself. I find religions a bit hard to take in what they preach, and the ideals that they contain. But that is not the matter here. All religions (correct me if i am wrong, but to my understanding all religions) offer the explaination that we are special. One of a kind. Possibly the only intelligent life capable of achieving great things. But how can this be possible? I do not see how in this vast extensive universe that we could be the only beings capable of questioning and investigating our surroundings, the only beings able to think at a deeper level than the animals around us (no offence!) Should we be looking for other life (if it exists?) or should we be focusing on our own struggles here on Earth like the divison between first and third world countries?
