Your teacher is not crazy and I assume that you think he is crazy because he say's yes life outside of earth is possible and there are so called aliens on other planets. You have to keep an open mind on this and erase everything hollywood has ever placed into your mind, a lot of the problems with people not believing in aliens is that they watch too many movies or they are to stubborn to accept what is right in front of them. Have a look at the fact's I'm going to tell you, they are breif but I want you to take a while and really think about what they mean and then you tell me that your teacher is still crazy. We know for a fact that there are several planets in our galaxy, our galaxy is called The Milky Way, now our hubble space telescope has recoreded thousands of pictures of other galaxies and there very well can be billions if not trillions of other galaxies, we just do not know yet. Now we also know based upon our own galaxy that there are billions and billions of stars, we also know this is true with other galaxies based upon the pictures we have gathered over the years. We also know that our galaxy has 9 or so planets, maybe more we dont know yet and we know for a fact that at least one planet in our galaxy can hold life, this planet is called Earth LOL. So now do the math, there are possibly billions of galaxies, each galaxy has the chance to hold planets, and we know that planets have the ability to hold life, so that means there are possibly billions of planets out there so lets say if one out of every million planets can hold life, and 1 out of every hundred of those planets has intellegent life form's like us Humans. This mean's that there are possibly millions of planets with life on them, with these fact's and odds we cannot say that life on other planets does not exsist and we cannot say that intellegent life on other planets cannot exsist because if it does not exsist then we do not exsist. As for encounters no I do not personally believe that we have ran into another race of being's yet, I have myself seen alot of things that I could not explain, UFOs and thing's that just seem out of the ordinary, but I do not believe that we have been visited yet. We might not ever be visited, the universe is well everlasting there is no end, it's so big we cannot even begin to talk about it or even comprehend how big it is, so the odds are that it's extreamly difficult to find another race of intellegent beings. This is my personal belief based upon what I know, but I like to keep an open mind and as my knowledge increases, my belief's change based upon what I know. So I would not assume that anyone talking about alien's are crazy because well no one really know's but if your like me, go with what you do know.

Perhaps I should have explained why she was crazy. It isn't because of her views. Rather, It is due to her attitude and perceptions of the class. She is actually a very old, mean spirited woman it seems. I won't give you all the details because I'll be here all night. However she acts as if not a single student cares about her topic and we're all in class to get an "easy A." on the exam she wrote "good luck to those who actually care" I do have an open mind, and some of the material she showed us was very interesting. There are many theories about life on other planets.

Ahh i see ok now I better understand, yeah she does seem like she could be a bit bitter, I dont like teachers like that, they are no longer there to teach they are there because they dont have anything else better to do or they have just lost the spirit of teaching.

I Have wondered weather or not there was life out side of earth. Im still not sure how i feel about that though. I dont think there is life out there i think we are life... But i've also never been to other planets either. So who knows!

Some people say that aliens do in fact live on Earth and they look exactly like you or I!

Yes i believe but i dont have any encounters. because the universe is very big. so other lifeforms live somewhere out there.
