Why is every planet but earth so fucking useless?

>> No.9829564

>>9829562
because God made earth special

It's largely thanks to Jupiter that Earth exists where it is and is largely safe from asteroids.
Now apologize.

because most elements on their own aren't really all that exciting and don't do much

what makes you think earth isn't as useless in the grand scheme of things? for all we know, we're just as desolate as mars or mercury to some higher order life.

well i think you can objectively say earth is more interesting than most other planets.

He is not objective. To deny the uniqueness of Earth means his brain has been twisted by the Marxist cancers that erode our institutions of academia.

only from the immediate visual perspective of life
there's some cool shit elsewhere if you bother to study

>> No.9829613

>>9829611
i suppose you have a point. apart from life though, earth also has very complex weather patterns, plus a lot of varying geography, and shittons of surface water. so i think those things plus life make it a very interesting planet.

that's not to say there aren't other interesting planets that don't have any life, just that earth is probably one of the most interesting.

>> No.9829632

There could be some interesting shit on Venus. Also some of the moons.

Assuming life on earth arose through abiogenesis, it's possible that such a natural occurrence is extremely rare, a statistical improbability, and that life evolving intelligence is even rarer

It's estimated that there are 100 billion planets in the Milky Way, but it would not surprise me at all if the planets with intelligent life only number in the tens or hundreds, and are so far apart that lifeforms from different planets never come into contact with each other

Not that this speculation means much, since we only have a sample size of 1 inhabited planet at the moment

If we are talking about uniqueness then all of the planets in our solar system get a pass.
>b-but they dont have liquid water and life
Are those necessary to be unique?

Life is a fluke. Advanced consciousness is a short period of time that will be gone sooner than it came.

>> No.9829729

>>9829562
Because Mars got cucked by Jupiter out of its fair share of the protoplanetary disc, and wound up way smaller than it should have been. As for Venus, it was a good planet with a lot of potential that just grew up in a bad environment.

That's a new brand of astrology. People of old used to project their characteristics on the planets and stars, but "uselessness" was not one them.

Many tide pools are wildly interesting. Indeed, they may be the origin of life itself. That doesn't change how ambivalent humans are about the gradual but unceasing annihilation of all tidepools' life in this Sixth Extinction.

I don't want to know anything about the creepy implication that this girl is so rare the most probable likelihood is I am being tracked and this thread is full of robots, a thread created as an elaborate phishing attempt.

This is mostly safe for work unless you click anywhere at all. You need a Right-to-Click extension to save the pictures. You should do that. You will never see this again.

Fack. I can't paste the link. Try erome.com, then a slash, then an a, then another slash, then LrBnBAcv.
