All true, and I for one believe that we are not alone in this universe.
(Tho' I don't think the odds are QUITE 50/50 about life existing on
any given planet. Here in our solar system alone the odds are 8 to 1.)

But what makes me believe that Mobius is part of another universe primarily
the fact that pure magic (the Time Stones, the Chaos Emeralds) exists.
At the same time, however, I like to believe that the universe that Mobius
exists in is parallel in many aspects to our own, and that Mobius is
that universe's Earth. Mobius and Earth share many of the same animal
and plant species (albeit at different points of evolution), they have
chili dogs :-), and, assuming that we're not hearing translations, even use
the same languages.

Another thing that makes me dismiss the idea of a future Earth is the
HUGE improbability that many species on Earth could evolve from where they
are now into sentient beings in just under 2000 years, nuclear accident
mutations or not. So far it's taken humans 2.5 million years!

And now for something completely tasteless...

I wonder if Sonic has ever eaten any of his friends when he had chili
dogs. Is that why we don't see Porker Lewis in the Archie comics?
