"we have left the earth into space,clearly we are
special and our purpose goes beyond staying<br> on this
small planet."<br><br>so far we haven't exactly left
the Earth behind. We made a big deal about going to
the moon, made a resuable shuttle that costs more
then it's worth and have contented ourselves with star
trek re runs ever since. If there was some grand
design to do go beyond the Earth, it isn't a very
effective one.<br><br>Even the human race had invested more
into space exploration, that still hardly implies a
grand design or intelligent plan by a higher force.
Life forms instinctivly expand into new places to
gather untapped resources to increase thier odds for
survival. Mankind no more has a predestined place in outer
space then lichen has a manifest destiny to get to the
next barren rock.
