Do you think alien life exists?

Hi everyone, this is my first topic I'm starting here on myLot. Here's a question scientists have pondered over for years. Does alien life exist? For centuries we have believed that Earth is the sole planet in the universe that can support life. But research has shown that there are other planets too that can support life, and there are possibilities that life definitely exists elsewhere in the universe, perhaps in other galaxies. And even if alien life-forms do exist, do you think that they would be more advanced than us?

Hi there, The cell of our fully exposed brain, I mean the sharpest human brain is a little bit lesser than the Universe. This was stated by Stephen Hawkins. Now the question as human being would never ever be able to know the universe, we can not deny the possibility of alien being. And this is not necessary that they should be our looks alike.

Oh hell yeah, i totally think that live somewhere other than earth is totally plausible. I mean think about it, the earth is positioned in such a way that its neither too hot nor too cold, it has atmosphere suited to life, it has water, it has an ozone layer. So how could we possibly deny that a planet similar to this could exist a few billion light year away or perhaps in other galaxy. Neither humans nor any living organism were the cause for the earth being so perfectly suited TO suit life, so obviously whatever that caused this perfect planet to be made could have repeated itself somewhere else. The fact that they have not come to earth yet is just proof that they might be more advanced. Great topic :)

I believe we would be pretty arrogant to believe this is the only planet in the entire universe that has any form of intelligent life. I'm sure there are many out there with various levels of intelligence. Stars are born and die all the time, with them planets come and go. So if a life sustaining planet was formed before our own, I'm sure the life on that planet has had more time to evolve, giving them a chance to be more advanced. But at the same time, there are probably planets that have formed more recently, and therefore the beings are less advanced. In order for the universe to continue to exist it has to work in some sort of pattern similar to this.

Yeah I totally agree with you. There's probably another planet really similar to earth with life on it. I wish we could glimpse into something like that.

I do believe that alien life exists, considering that our universe is very large and and the fact that because of this largeness of the universe there might be countless other planets far away that supports life. I have been thinking of that years ago and I do still think that there is a possibility to this theory. Considering that life on earth was made possible, why not life on other planets with the same situation and conditions like ours that may be able to contain living organisms. and think about other galaxies. There are so many galaxies and think that there are so many planets, this gives me the impression that we are not alone in this universe. The question is... are they more advance than us? or are we more advanced than them? Those are the questions that hangs in my mind. Yikes!!!

Haha yeah my point exactly! Like said in Calvin & Hobbes- The surest sign of intelligent alien life forms existing, is that they haven't contacted us yet.

We live in a huge universe, that still remains infinite in all directions. Scientist have come up with theories of parallel universes, that makes this huge space even bigger. So, it's foolish to think that we are alone. The problem is, we don't know what lies beyond our reach. We can see far away galaxies through telescopes, but it would ta ke a human millions of years to reach there. So if aliens are out there somewhere, it might not be possible to even fid them with the technologies we have today. Moreover, why do we always think they will be advanced tahn us. They can be in the form of a bacteria or an algae, since on most places human form won't survive, but bacteria can, who live in extreme temperatures and weather conditions. Some bacteria donot need even oxygen to survive. These might just be the aliens next door.

I believe it's possible. It would be great to know that there's life on other planets. I'm really hoping that scientists would discover something.

Dear friend, I could see that this Universe is full of mysteries. There is billions and billions of things to known. May be we humans are watched by aliens who knows. Hence I feel that alien exits and if not humans will make aliens.

The first thing to say is that if the alien succeeded in making it understood that it wanted to know 'what it meant for human beings to have a mind', then you would presume that it had a mind. Of course, there's always the initial possibility that you are listening to a tape recording, but if you manage to continue an intelligent conversation, that can be ruled out. Then there's the possibility that your 'alien' is merely a mechanical probe responding to instructions from real aliens in their orbiting space ship or back on Mars, and relaying their questions to you. In that case, you are dealing with real minds, at one remove.

i think it a yes to me. because there is so many incident that show us that UFO is existed. i also think that the aliens are more advance from technology. but still, human is the perfect formm in this universe among the other life form..

Honestly, deep down, I don't really believe there is alien life out there - not in terms of sentient beings like ourselves. Partly this is to do with my religious faith, I think , having been taught about man as a unique creation. Having said that, I don't think it would change that if it was discovered, all it would mean to me was that God is obviously a whole lot bigger than the little box my brain put him in! I am a huge Doctor Who fan (British sci fi show) and I do love the idea of being able to travel in space and time and there being a universe way bigger than we comprehend, so who knows, really?

I believe that alien exist, because i saw them hovering 5 meters above my head when i was camping with my friend, we both saw it and the distance is short so we can't be wrong, and we were sleeping without a tent, the ship or whatever it is had a triangular shape and a lot of light and doesn't have any sound, i was so afraid because my only weapons is just a machete, that was one moment in my life where i feel fear like never before.

Well I do believe aliens exist! Perhaps via Quantun Physics we can roughly get the concluision?

Lately I watched an old science fiction movie called Contact. There is a famous quotation in this movie: If humans were the only life in the universe it would be a terrible waste of space. I think this quotation can exactly express my opinions. I do think the alien life does exist in the universe. We just don't know yet. I love China

well.. i`m always thinking if u belive we are the only one planet with life on it, then u are too sellfish... we belong to a huge universe, full of planets, moons, suns and many more thing. I do not know if this alien life are more advanced than us , probably they are, but i know something for sure... we are not alone.

I believe aliens exist and may be more advanced then us.They may be more advanced but may not be able to contact us because there is no real easy to travel across galaxies very fast.WE see it in movies and books but even at light speed it would take a long time to get here from far away.OR they are studying us to see if we are worth being contacted.

Scientist Can Explain About That But Why Until Now I Didn't See An Alien Personally
