It'd be very naive to think we're the only intelligent forms of life in the entire universe.

I believe in Jesus and God and the Holy Ghost and they all told me there's no such thing.

Since its an interesting thread and just so this is not a +1 to Fancys comment. I wonder how alien life is. I mean, we always portrait with human characteristics. Noses, eyes, mouths... Could there be alien life made only of energy? Maybe just a lot of cells that fly around like a gas cloud that interacts as one being and thinks?

Easy now, Captain Kirk.

It's true though. Would we even be able to see them? Maybe they're amongst us now.

that's a pretty interesting take on it Bel.

i remember as a kid i used to watch those unsloved mystery type shows and i would get FREAKED OUT of the alien adbuction segments. That shit used to give me nightmares.

when it comes to aliens, i always like to refer to the quote from the 1st Men in Black movie...it goes something like this...

"1500 years ago, everybody knew that the Earth was the center of the universe. 500 years ago, everybody knew that the Earth was flat. And 15 minutes ago, you knew that people were alone on this planet. Imagine what you'll know tomorrow"

for the record..i think it's silly and naive to think that we're the only intelligent life form out there...WAY to many possibilities in just our galaxy alone

here's Pt 1 of an excellent program called Into The Universe With Stephen Hawking

As fancy said, I do believe there are other life forms out there. I don't believe in brain eating aliens though

I believe that there are unidentified flying objects. I do not believe that they are alien space craft.

I believe that there is intelligent life somewhere in the universe. I do not believe that it has visited here. I'm not even sure, in principle, that it could.

I believe that any speculation as to the nature of this life, both in terms of morphology and intent for other species, is completely baseless. At most, you can draw extremely weak inferences which I would not put any weight in.

I believe these opinions are informed by the best evidence and reasoning available to us. This is not an a priori assumption.


Lastly, it is not true that 500 years ago, everyone believed the earth was flat. Pop history is often factually wrong.

I definitely believe in intelligent life-forms outside of Earth. The are many, many solar systems in our galaxy. And furthermore, there are many, many galaxies in the universe.

I watched a TV show, where they said "Earth is just one of trillions of planets in the universe. Earth is like a grain of sand in the universe." Somewhere out there, I think there is more planets that can support intelligent life. It just seems dumb that there is only 1 out of trillions of planets in the universe with intelligent life.
