Are there really aliens out there?

First of all, aliens are defined to be any living being beyond the realm of our planet. Therefore, any form of organism like bacteria can be considered an alien. Scientists say that the universe is infinite. Can you imagine a place so big containing trillions of stars and millions of galaxies and not a single one of them besides our planet to have a certain form of life form?

Aliens do exist and one as you said are the bacteria we see on under the lens. I am just not sure about the 'Aliens' that people have been saying. Last night I have watched the movie 'Apollo 18' and there they have mentioned and shown the extra terrestrial form they have discovered on the moon which was hidden to people a long time ago. Don't know whether the film is really based on a true story.

Even I am wondering why haven't we returned to Moon, People say, American government has already contacted highly advanced aliens and these aliens live on the moon. I've heard that president Kennedy was killed because he was going to reveal this secret and this would resulted in end of church and other religious beliefs. One thing is for sure, moon is not solid, it's hollow sphere and that is not natural or is it?

why would the existance of life on other planets end religious beliefs?

Because if we are result of a genetical engineering project (The way we are designing robots today) and we were designed in the image of some alien species, then the religion and gods etc will be just an imagination. Suppose there are 10 earth like planets with human beings who have evolved at different point of times then what about Jesus on other planets? Actually, if you give it a thought, religions don't even make sense here but we accept it because we face from the first day of our life, at least we need something to fight and create differences

One would have to be conceited and foolish to consider the only life in the universe to be on this planet. The universe is huge and expanding - there're billions of galaxies out there with even more planets in them, and at least one of those has to contain life. Whether there is any other life that can be qualified as intelligent is another matter entirely.

The possibility that other life forms more advanced than we are is more than hightly probable. We haven't had the chance to interact with them because we haven't been able to communicate or see each others existence, yet.

I don't doubt that there's a good chance some form of intelligent life is out there; the universe is huge.

oh definitely. it would be pure arrogance to think that of all the stars with their surrounding solar systems of however many planets they contain, that there are no other planets that are supporting life out there. just because we've not found it yet doesn't mean it's not there. we've barely scraped the surface. just by probability, the chance of there being no other life out there is minute.

Correct. And the chance of also having another life form out there is very high.

I think there are all possibilities for the existence of alien creatures at somewhere in this infinite universe. We have already discovered planet with almost conditions of the Earth. But we should be vigilant about the possible harms in searching or meeting with them any future time.

I certainly agree with you. What we need to prepare for is the possibility that there might also be advanced life forms who will try to harm us in the event that we meet them. You have a good point right there.

I believe there are "aliens" out there except for the theory of them actually visiting us. My reason is that, if they have been visiting us, why are they hiding? There must be a reason. If they are not hiding, i.e. the government is hiding them, I think if aliens are able to come to earth, they should have the technology to push the government aside and do as they please. If they are visiting us, and they are hiding, the only other theory is that they are observing our progress, as it could be a possibility that we are just their experiment. But just to confuse your interests a little, the universe is not infinite as it is dependent to time. If the universe had a beginning (time dependent) it means it is finite. However it is further expanding, but is much much slower than the rate of expansion from the beginning. Cheers!

Hi way2vision, Here is the answer to your question (why are they hiding?): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5lbD6EKEOo&feature=related Note: I bet 99% Bees (Or any such creature) in your area will be telling each other, duh..Humans are a mythology, they don't really exist, if they exist why don't they Just to give you an example of what we could be for them, check this one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beekeeping

Yeah, I believe there are other life forms out there. Some scientist do believe there is life on Mars similar to us.

They certainly think so. Right now they sent rovers to know if water existed on Mars a long time ago.

I think tere are many life forms on earth . And also the greatest scientist Stephen Hawkins also believes in many other life forms. I don't have any proof but....

i think there are indeed aliens out there... because the size of the galaxy is sooo huge that it is rather impossible not to have any other life being in the whole universe, or galaxy. i believe there are other life out there, we just have to discover them...

I don't have any proofs but i somehow believe there are lives outside earth. I mean the universe would be too big just for the people of earth to live in. But I have also read at places where people swear they've seen aliens and have been in contact with them. If you wanna read about them let me know I'll send you the links :)
