    Ok thanks for the response, good day to you sir.

  2. BackToConstitution says:

    Is there a gun to your head to stay?

  3. BackToConstitution says:

    Why are you here?

  4. BackToConstitution says:

    I know very well what evidence is
    First hand testimony is evidence and hearsay is not
    I am not the first hand witness, but I have read the evidence that you speak of
    Now, you must read it, for it is not my job to educate you
    You do not travel the stars and so you don’t know
    If I tell you, you will still not know
    You must get your evidence directly from the source who was taken and shown
    It sounds like you are in the elementary stages of your development and you have to grow wise, with time

  5. Kyee71 says:

    They may all have planets but what evidence do you have for saying most have life and 80% of the life are reptiles, not mammals? and if you reply with saying its just a belief, that is not evidence.

  6. BackToConstitution says:

    I visited your channel and I think we found the looney bin!

    (escapee from the loony bin)

    It’s 10:20 p.m. here in Arizona and I just checked, but see nothing, but clouds
    Last night, it was very clear and I could see the milky way, all across the sky without a telescope
    The desert is so great!
    I don’t know what you are looking at, but a cluster of 5 stars will not make a Milky Way and you’re going to need a few more
    There are billions of stars in our galaxy and all of them have planets
    Most have life and 80% of the life are reptiles, not mammals
    Only 10% are mammals, most planets are

    Hi, what’s that cluster of stars at 5 o’clock under Venus, Is it the milky way?

  10. BackToConstitution says:

    Very well done! Thank you! I went outside to see the shooting stars, but I”m about a week late
    Still, I saw one shooting star at 3:30 a.m. and I’m satisfied, but I’d have loved to have seen 20 per hour on April 22, 2012

    Stupid video…  it always buffers at the same exact time, “M65, M66, and MGC3628, makeup the Leo Trip-” fffffffffffffffffffffffffff

  12. TheKo56 says:

    this is exactly why I hate living right by NYC… I wouldnt see it this year anyways… it’s cloudly tonight…. :(

  13. Gabe O'Neill says:

    haha, are you serious or just playing around?

    If you are serious, I wouldn’t worry about it, while the universe is expanding at an extreme rate (at least to our standards here on Earth) it will be a many billions of years before we are even able to notice a loss of a galaxy or two in our night sky, with that said I’d be more concerned about the light pollution than with our distant cousin’s issues :)

  15. dominic2014 says:

    No, it’s not light pollution it’s the expanding of the universe, we just don’t realize how fast it really is going, all the stars will be invisible in 20 years :(

  16. mikelVable says:

    What a bunch of bologni

  17. swmorlando says:

    Your right about light polution from city lights. I have not seen a good starty night in a long time. On Greese Islands theres no liights wlking on the beach and can see all kinds of good starts. Every where i go in the states when i look up in the night sky i still can’t see any starts. walking on the beaches in floruda theres to much light to see any thing.

  18. Quagigitymire says:

    I wish I had discovered this channel much sooner =( This is a great one for all who love to sit back and enjoy the beauty of mother nature and the night sky. I wish I lived in a less light polluted city. It’s the only thing that keeps me from investing in a very good telescope.

    I got an Orion xt8 intelliscope …. It shaw be a great viewing month, weather permitting that is. Clear skies !
