People need to hope in something

If people set no store in God, it seems that they need to turn to something else to give them hope.

A modern alternative is to hope in life on other worlds and a future for mankind on a celestial  scale.

But are science fiction stories affecting the modern performance of scientific observation of our universe?

According to an article over at R & D Magazine,  the expectation of extraterrestrial life is built more on optimism than evidence.

If life on Earth is all the life there is, what hope do we have?

“This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD.”

Jeremiah 23:16
