All those Spanish speaking aliens. That IS cool.

But life outside our earth does exist, note our inhabitance of our planet and evidence of organic matter on planets such as Mars. Now intelligence is a term that has no specifications, it is a very general term. to other life forms out there, we could be smarter. However, they would never know that because the probability of Long Range space travel is improbable, we may never find out.

Sorry to piss on the bonfire of the spanish aliens, but surely even if there is a infinate number of planets, which there is becuase of the universes constant expansion, there is also an infinate differnt possible "paths" through evolution. As will all science there is a probability that it will happen, but 70% is far to high, sorry guys

Of course there is extraterrestrial intelligent life. Ther are an infinite amount of extraterrestrial intelligent beings in our universe. An example of this extraterrestrial intelligent life are the our creators who created all life on Earth, including us.

To All,
People think! Even if there were extraterretrial life out there how would you be able to prove it. We are talking about millions of systems and galaxies and light years. Without light speed travel, which is totally impossible, we would never be able to find any source of life out there unless that hubble junk actually survives to tell us.

Aznbois,

People used to think that the sound barrier couldn't be broken, then it was. Speed of light travel may be broken, maybe not in our lifetime but have some faith in human persistance. Things are only impossible if you stop trying to accomplish things.

Plus it is possible that there is life somewhere within our own galaxy, and thus not requireing light speed travel. You have to remember that life may not be as developed as we are, and may only have rocks tied to sticks and thus it is not like the movies. I say this because many people will say "if there are aliens why havn't they come to earth yet" and two simple reasons: -
The vast expanse of the universe and even the size of just this galaxy.
There is nothing to say that they are developed enougth to travel to us, or even developed as much as we are. Or even havn't evolved as much as we have.

Since I do not believe in evolution, the only way aliens could exist was if God created them.
I do not know if God created other life on planets far from us, but I doubt it. That's my belief.

By the way, there has never been any evidence on any planet of other life.


Why wouldnt God create life on other planets?  or maybe there are more than one God.  aybe our God is not the same one for another planet.  the universe is so unimaginably huge, there is really no way we will ever know unless they come to us.




well said. my thoughts exactly

i seriously doubt the government knows anything about extraterrestrial life for three reasons.

one, people who work for the government would not be able to keep their mouths shut for any reason, that is the nature of man.

two, if our government knew, then most likely other countries would know and they would probably not have the same intentions as our own government.

three, if any alien race was advanced enough to find us, they would not allow our primitive government to hide the fact from the whole world.

Speed of light travel may be broken.


According to our current understanding of physics this is not possible. However, it does not stop you taking a day trip to the Andromada Galaxy. There may be ways to bedn space and thus shortern the journey e.g. the hypothetical wormhole.


even if there is a infinate number of planets, which there is becuase of the universes constant expansion

The amount of matter in the universe does not increase (conservation of matter and energy). Instead the space bettween galaxies is increasing. The amount of matter in the universe has acturly been calculated. Although this value is a very routh estimate (and our picture of the universe is uncomplete), it shows that the universe is not infinte in matter. I think they calculated something like 10^72 atoms in the unvierse or something along those lines.


Aliens have not visited this planet and are unlikly to do so untill we visit them or become a risk to them.
We are far too primative. Visiting us would acumplish nothing and probably end up throwing us into disarray.
Aliens visiting would have to spend vast amounts of energy to visit us and we are not really worth it.
Aliens visiting would have to deal with more than just the change in atmosphere. The microbes on our planet could easily kill them as they have not developed any anti-bodies to protect themselves against our microbes. Simularly, they could spread alien microbes around the Earth. We would have no natural defence to this and so they may be able to kill most of humanity, if not most life on Earth.

The only possibility of aliens visiting Earth in the near future is through probes, whether they have done already is unknown. Whilst these are not aliens as such, they would be able to observe our civilization through the use of these probes and clearly see we are far too primative.

P/S. Why do people keep bringing religion into this?

I believe in creation so i don't believe there are aliens. I do have evidence to back up this though.

What are the chances there is life on other planets? We are not even sure how life began on Earth!!! (Unless you follow a religion, which i do.

The only way life could be on other planets is through evolution. Darwin (establisher of the concept of evolution) even left a loop hole in his theory (which he ignoliged) that said in a simple form that evolution is incorrect if a organism cannot survive without a structure that is devoloping through evolution. Modern biology has proven that single celled organisms are so compleck that they could not survive if they were missing one of there structures. So if every thing "evolved" the entire organism would have to apper all at once at the time the species came into exsestence. That is not possible.

How does your personal opinion count as evidence?

OK so far.

Darwin (establisher of the concept of evolution) even left a loop hole in his theory (which he ignoliged) that said in a simple form that evolution is incorrect if a organism cannot survive without a structure that is devoloping through evolution.


Where did he say this?  Sounds like something fabricated on a creationist website to fool the gullible.


Modern biology has proven that single celled organisms are so compleck that they could not survive if they were missing one of there structures. So if every thing "evolved" the entire organism would have to apper all at once at the time the species came into exsestence. That is not possible.


Modern biology has "proven" nothing of the sort.  Quite the opposite actually.  Would you like to learn about it?
