Via Reuters: We’re not alone in universe, says Tom Cruise.

I will grant, such an assertion is not especially radical, but it somehow takes on a different air given the fact that is seems impossible to escape the wit and wisdom of Tom Cruise of late.

Further, one can almost hear the self-congratulatory pseudo-intellectualism when one reads the following:

“Millions of stars, and we’re supposed to be the only living creatures? No, there are many things out there, we just don’t know,” Cruise, 42, said in the interview published in German.

But, of course, my favorite are his pronouncements on psychiatry:

Cruise also dismissed psychiatry as a “pseudo science,” invoking the ire of the American Psychiatric Association that called the remarks “irresponsible.”

Somehow if you adhere to a religion that was created by a scifi writer (a not particularly good one at that–I tried to get through Battlefield: Earth back in High School–but, oh me!–”copious” doesn’t even begin to describe it), then I don’t think you have a lot of credibility when it comes to calling anything a “pseudo-science”.

    I actually enjoyed Battlefield Earth a lot, though I’ve read nothing else of his, and that’s the only one I’ve ever had recommended to me. It was a shame they ruined the movie, as one (or more, to fit it all) done right might have been entertaining.

    I could see the book not being for everyone though.

    Mr. Cruise is also innumerent (i.e., mathematically challenged). There are 3×10^11 stars in our Milky Way Galaxy alone, and probably more than 10^11 visible galaxies in the universe. (See here) But then, a million is probably the largest number Mr. Cruise could conceive of.

    I think the media will cause Thomas to fall into a downward spiral which will lead to the inevitable rehab and apologetic re-molding of his life.
