Aliens certainly exist but they probably have not visited Earth.

It'd be irrational for you not to, just with all of the evidence out there. Even the Mexican Airforce admitted they exist, so inb4 all the religious nuts spam tinfoil_hat.jpg

I also believe the Stoned Ape theory might have some backing to it, but that one I'm not as absolutely sure about. But there's no denying that spores can survive in space, as you all know.

i believe in extraterrestrial life. or rather i admit that we're in no position to properly deny it given how little we know about the universe

i don't believe in big-headed grey men or flying saucers or any other form of 'visitors'. all of which are incredibly poorly thought out and very clearly an unimaginative product of popular culture

Of course I believe in aliens.

Kind of unrelated as far as believing whether they exist or not, but Neil DeGrasse Tyson's analogy on aliens visiting Earth is my favourite

"I wonder if, in fact, we have been observed by aliens and upon close examination of human conduct and human behavior they have concluded that there is no sign of intelligent life on Earth,"

And then there's the possibility that intelligent aliens might not simply ignore us but might harm us, just as humans sometimes harm what we consider lesser forms of life. As Tyson went on to say in the interview, "You don't walk by the worm on the street and say, 'Gee, I wonder what he's thinking.' No, you step on the worm."

Considering that there are 40 billion earth-like planets in our galaxy alone, it seems highly unlikely that there aren't any other intelligent species in the universe.

The idea that they've come here or already are here? I don't know. I suppose it's likely but we're really an imperceptible blip even in our own galaxy.

We've (humans) also only been here for a very small fraction on the time earth has been around. It's more likely that if aliens visited that it wasn't at a time when humans inhabited earth.

Also I have to wonder: Do we really think that we're so special that another species would go out of their way to find us and make contact?

Why not? I mean, we don't know what's out there. I would guess if there are aliens, they don't know either. How could they know we are "not that special"? I mean, even if we just found some random bacteria on some other planet, it would be pretty special to us. Finding life in any form on other planets is so rare that it is special. Even finding a planet that could be suitable for life is rare.

I don't know if aliens think the same way. But it's a fact that life outside the earth is very rare. And we can't even be sure it exists (though it would be kind of strange if it didn't exist, at least in some form).


We don't look for any certain species (because we don't know any "alien species"). We are just interested if we can find anything living somewhere. It could be as simple as bacteria or something more advanced than humans.

not quite. I believe they may very likely exist, but I take a "need to see evidence" stance, just because there's also the chance that our life may be a fluke.


edit: i mean complex life. of course there is some kind of basic life out there even simple animal life. the scale of the universe makes it inevitable. whether there is life on our level could be seen as a bit more of a fluke if you consider the mechanisms that made us "advanced" to either be unique to our situation or something that readily happens all the time. hard to say at the moment but in depth research exploration of places like mars and europa can put some evidence one way or the other.

I'd like to say that I'm pretty sure that if aliens have visited Earth and actually are malevolent and want us dead there'd be like nothing we could do from stopping them from murdering us coldly and quickly when they finally send their alien equivalent of the death star to genocide us.

Unless we could somehow clone Jeff Goldblum and Will Smith like a million times.


edit: lol Jess Goldblum.

Fair point.

I guess I just find it hard to believe that a civilization advanced enough to be traipsing around the galaxy (or beyond) would find much interest in our species, but I suppose anything's possible.

If humans were capable of faster-than-light travel, would we be concerned with every species we encountered? I would imagine maybe the first 5 or so intelligent ones, maybe even less.

Eventually it would become observation-based, I would think. Especially when we're talking about species that are in the stages of development that humans are currently in. We're really only at the beginning of our journey through development.

Hell, for all we know, our entire species is just some weird alien experiment hehe.

You're right though, we don't know what's out there. This topic is reminding me of The Fermi Paradox a bit.

It's most definitely likely that there's life out there, but I don't believe that there are ailens on Earth. We're just not interesting enough. Maybe if we practice guitar more often...

I think the probability that there are aliens somewhere in the cosmos, is converging to 1.

I can't wait until the world decided to get going on that Europa thing. My inner-adolescent can't help but hope for underground/underwater dinosaur aliens.

I think given the vast size of the universe and the amount of planets out there that have potential for life that there has to be at least some form of life out there somewhere, maybe even intelligent beings. The only thing is, I'm not so sure we will ever know about them for how far they are.
