If

IF
If God is dead.
if suns are still created,
if carbon is the only basis of life,
if E still equals m,c-squared,
if what Darwin said is true,
if nothing can travel faster than light,
if there are no UFOs,
if radio is the ultimate invention,
if nuclear-fission can be usefully tamed,
if three is the magic number,
we may still be alone in the universe.

If not, we may still, or not.
If anyone could say,
or if not.......
