Here’s an artist’s rendition of what California would have looked like from space back in 1851.
Here is a photo taken of a California Redwood tree cut down in the late 1800s. Superimposed over the trunk, a graphic compares the timeline of the tree’s rings as they coincide with events in human history.
This single tree was alive for the majority of recorded history.

A Libertarian Case for Net Neutrality
As a libertarian you may be uneasy with the concept of net neutrality. Like me, you feel inexplicably drawn to this neutrality but feel guilty for it. You think to yourself, “I’m a free-market libertarian, by God! Regulation is wrong! Why is my instinct betraying me?” It’s because we don’t live in perfect world. We live in an economy that is far from free and is infested with government regulations and corporate manipulation. The internet service industry is a picturesque example of this.
Why Aliens Have Never Visited Earth
“If an alien in a galaxy 65 million light years away is looking at us through a telescope right now, then they are looking at dinosaurs.”
This is because of the time it takes the photons of light to reach them. If they are 65 million light years away, then they are just now receiving the light reflected and emitted from our planet 65 million years ago. Therefor, they are observing our planet as it existed 65 million years ago. If the alien lived in a galaxy even farther than that, then the alien is observing light and an Earth that existed even further into the past.
…and by the time said aliens finally arrived here (even with their warp drive) we will most likely be extinct and long gone. That’s as far into it as I will get here for now.
