does alien really exist?

For the first time a pope has accepted the possibility of extra terrestrial life in the universe and interestingly these aliens are considered to be the children of god too. NOTE: He believes that the world was created by big bang theory. It is to be noted that the church has been questioning science foe the past 3 centuries so he felt its time that the church began to rectify the mistakes of the past, said it was a "tragic mutual incomprehension." to prosecute Galileo in the 13th century. Unfortunately this gesture has not been welcomed by many Christians as they feel pope shouldn't has spoken openly against. Hence friend, what is your opinion about this. Do you think that does alien really exist.

I personally don't believe completely in aliens because there is no official confirmation & also its not mentioned any where in the bible. Hence until there is an official confirmation or if I see with my eyes, it might be hard for me to believe in aliens. Happy Lotting

the aliens probably do not believe in you either because they have no proof of your existence.

Why are we calling Aliens 'Aliens'.Why this hatred?Nobody is alien in this universe.We are one big universal family.Lord Buddha have taught us,that even the so called aliens should be loved and respected.We should welcome wholeheartedly them,if they arrive here.

This gives evidence that their claim that the pope is infallible (do not make mistakes when making declarations) is nothing but bogus. Oh my papa. lol!!!

Who was then infallible, the pope who declared that Galileo was wrong or the pope who openly acknowledged the "errors of the church"?

Think about it:wouldn't it be pretty stupid to think that only the people on earth are the only actually living people in the universe?Scientist don't know if there's an end to universe,they don't know if there are life on other planets, or anywhere in this universe. I've learned that to get from one point of the milky way,to the opposite side, it will take approximately over 100 BILLION years if you're traveling at the SPEED OF LIGHT .Amazing huh?And we say that there are about 10[i think] more galaxies ,and there are probably uch more.So our universe is pretty big,and it would be pretty dumb of us to think that only we're living.

It is incredible when you consider the size of it all - and fascinating. As you say there is so much we just don't know.

in all the billions and billions of stars and all the billions and billions of planets revolving around them it is hard to believe that there are no other lifeforms created. Mankind tends to think they are unique in the universe, this is very egocentric. Mankind is on the verge of destroying the earth by over populating it and destroying thousands of other life forms. I prefer to think of mankind as gods failed creation not its ultimate creation.

Hello, I dont really believe about alien exist or not cuz all I heard is about video and some other talk from people around. I would love to see in my real eyes to believe it. It is hard to say that too cuz most of people stated that they saw them...

I believe that Aliens are real. however, none has shown it's existence because nations like the United States and other western nations prefer to keep it under wraps and probably for they thinking that the human race is not ready to make contact since Aliens have far more advance Civilization than ours.

I was a bit sceptical before but now I'm not so sure! I'm thinking to myself that there has to be something out there in the big wide universe! Our universe is so huge and I think it's virtually impossible that there isn't at least something out there! I'm pretty sure that something momentus will take place in the future although probably not in my life time. I think that there will be some kind of alien contact. Well, it certainly will make huge news stories the world over! Andrew

ya..i think so. You know there are other life forms in this earth other than us.Just like that in another planet..I think the life forms in earth are evolving very slowly.That may be why ,we couldn't find aliens ..NO SURPRISE You see our astronomical technologies are very poor .For example ,in 2008 a UFO was seen above australia ..its video is available in utube.check it out .All this points out to the fact that ..:)

i just find that funny - why is the Pope even commenting on alien life? He has no way of knowing just like the rest of us butI suppose he can say there 'might be'. He of course is only an authority over the Catholic church and so certainly doesn't speak for all Christians. I never understand why people think Christians have choose 'science OR faith' anyway. Why can't they go together? For me, science is just finding out about, exploring and describing what God made. I know a lot of people who are scientists and people of faith. I suppose some people like to think we're less intelligent because we don't believe the same as them. Ok, whatever! Honestly, I tend to think if they existed there would be evidence by now. But then we haven't reached planets with other life, so why should they reach us yet?!

It must be true that some form of life exists out there. It would be foolish to believe that Earth is the only planet with life. There is a near infinite amount of planets in the universe. Our galaxy alone contains hundreds of billions of stars, so there should be a greater amount of planets. Trillions of planets in our galaxy. Atleast another one should contain life in the Milky Way. Now we just need to hope that we can someday visit one of them...

Hi vinslounge, I have no doubt but that there is life on other planets throughout this universe and beyond. It does not make sense that this little particle of dust should be the only place in all of space to have life. There are no doubt innumerable planets in our own and other universes which we have no idea off. I feel certain that there is a great plan behind it all but I don't think we are ready to understand it all as yet. Blessings.

Yes, it seems according to the vatican is they don't need to be saved either..lol....totaly serious, the vatican released such a statement a while ago. and according to the Vatican's astronomer, if aliens exists, it may not require the redemption us humans do on earth. : http://www.catholicnews.com/data/stories/cns/0802629.htm As to whether or not aliens exist, complicated question. How are we going to define "alien"? Technicly, if we discover a bacteria with our Mars probes, that would qualify as "alien life", it is life and it is alien. It would seem to me that it is likely that somewhere out there in the univrese there are probably higher life forms, maybe even what we could call intelligent life. But I also believe it is not abundant enough for us to ever encounter that life. Given the incomprehensable size of the universe, even if there were a million solar sytems out there that were capable of sustaining intelligent life, the distances between them would still be so great that none would ever likely each other. Sad though isn't it? It's like tossing 1 million single cell organisms in the pacific ocean, spread from end to end, they will probably never come even with in miles of each other. On the big bang issue. I am not a christain, but it seems to me that the big bang could fit well in the frame work of the creation story, what more glorious way for God to make his gigantic and glorious creation in a collossal explosion of light and thunder? Just because there was a "big bang", doesn't mean someone didn't cause it and use it as his means of creating the complex universe.
