Maybe we are the probes. Sufficiently advanced self-replicating machines could be indistinguishable from life.

Very patient aliens, then.

The probes could easily seed planets with primitive life, though. So if such probes have been made, life could be very common in the galaxy.

Apparently, YouTube doesn't check for profanities in the URL's. Four letter words have a 1 in 200,000 chance of appearing randomly, or 1 in a million with consistent capitalising.

Censorship is tyranny. You know what you do with tyranny, you bring it down, hard.

Was mostly being facetious. smile While the mechanisms of abiogenesis are still not completely understood, I think we understand enough of it to be pretty sure that life here arose by natural processes. Or maybe was seeded elsewhere through panspermia if you're into that idea.

Can't see any comments about it in that section.

Nice video, anyway. A kind of 1984 look to it, or a 30's sci-fi. Seems to be student work.

Not really, but it's an interesting thought whether it would be noticeable in the geological record if somebody "aided" evolution a bit along the way, for instance caused the Cambrian explosion.

Try it with this:
Code

'.gif' not '.gifv'

I had the same problem some time ago.





Don't forget to look here.

Oh yeah, I knew I could do it with .gif, but .gifv is smaller and faster loading. Mercy for the mobile users.
