Well thanks for that link. i read through it and for the most part the quote just say "the universe is really really old". But it seems very non committal about the idea of extra-terrestrials visitings us.

although in the following quote Abdul'Baha seems to be alluding to something like that. Or am i reading it wrong??

"This limitless universe is like the human body, all the members of which are connected and linked with one another with the greatest strength. How much the organs, the members and the parts of the body of man are intermingled and connected for mutual aid and help, and how much they influence one another! In the same way, the parts of this infinite universe have their members and elements connected with one another, and influence one another spiritually and materially. (SAQ 245-246)"

i just wish it said at the end " and sometimes they get in little ships and visit each other." That would make my day.

"He had been speaking of the great technological and scientific strides of the age; it would be meet, He said, if ways and means of reaching other planets were now devised. ('Abdu'l-Baha by HM Balyuzi Pg 377)"

can someone explain to me what "('Abdu'l-Baha by HM Balyuzi Pg 377)" means. where did this come from.

Today, man is possessed of such power that he can travel in space and may soon reach other planets. On the other hand, such achievements if not coupled with spiritual progress will bring in their wake man's destruction upon this earth. (Rev Baha V. 1 Taherzadeh 120)

what does "(Rev Baha V. 1 Taherzadeh 120)" mean. who said this and where and when.
