Do you believe that aliens or another life form exist beyond our homeworld?
Feel free to discuss.
Can you prove that they don't?
Similar to creationism, you cannot disprove something that has no proof of existence, hence the term "disprove" since you need proof to disprove.
I think you need to clarify your question. You did not specify what type of life and how high of intelligence they have.
I do believe there is a high probability of different types of life on other planets and have no reason to believe aliens visit this planet and abduct people.
Yes, I can state that they do exist. And they are also intelligent and visiting us.
How do I know?
Well I feel that they do.
I have also come to this conclusion after using reasoning. You see, in an infinite Universe, where anything is possible, then it must be possible.
Also, you are unable to provide me evidence that they don't visit the Earth, therefore I know they exist. It is fact.
So in short, we know that:
b)They are intelligent
c)They are visiting us
d)They don't like gays
I also know it is true because I was taught that it is true from being a baby.
Yes, life exists beyond our homeworld; it was here when we got here wasn't it, why else did we settle this planet??
I answered 'yes', I believe that life does, has or will existed elsewhere than on earth.
I believe that aliens do exist. We just haven't yet discovered them or they haven't perhaps discovered us. Our technology is still far from advanced enough to look around in close detail of other planets (I don't just mean our own) in the universe. I find it a bit hard to believe that we would be the only intelligent lifeform in the entire universe.
I find both notions to be rather startling.
Often, when that is the case, when two opposite extremes are contemplated, in this case whether (presumed intelligent) life exists on other worlds or not, it is something in between those notions that turns out to be the truth.
For example, it could be that civilizations have come and gone over the 15 odd billion year life of the universe and that at this moment we are the only ones.
It could also be that there are life forms emerging around the universe here and there which have not yet reached a point we could call "civilization," such as most on Earth, and that those live forms will eventually evolve long after we've experienced our demise in whatever ways civilizations do (wars, host star sudden expansion, terrestrial catastrophes, proliferation of Michael Bolton music, etc..).
I can neither confirm or deny that there are Aliens anymore than people can confirm or deny there is a God. We have not even put a dent in the fraction of this universal discovery, cause its enormous and heck far as we know there is someone out there in a forum asking is there other life out there lol
Yes they do. They come from Mexico..
I'd say its more unlikely that they DON'T exist, if you go by the anthropic principle. The question is wether or not there are any advanced civilizations out there, or if what we call civilization is just a weird evolutionary quirk that almost never happens.
Yes, though given the duration of time the universe has existed vs that of humans, its probably a crapshoot or unlikely both would align/exist at a time where the technology and circumstances to communicate would allow it.
It would be pretty bad if Stephen Hawking's theory is right, though, about Alien nomads, lol.
alien ninjas pwn alien pirates
The "aliens" were here first.. there and everywhere..
Especially with the discovery of ice on some planets in our solar system, I think there really has to be some sort of life somewhere out there.
because you know the old saying "where there is ice there is an alien"
No, because water can harbor micro organisms much easier then the harsh environments of most planets.

If aliens do exist it couldn't be the reason behind the advanced structures of a an ancient pyramid?
Lol that was funny
I wonder on what degree is some of their technology compared to ours
i think theres a big chance that there is life in another planet, and like some one previously said, water could increase the chance of it.
It is crazy to think that they do not if you think about how big our galaxy is let alone the universe. In the milky way alone there are thousands of stars and solar systems like ours. We can not be the only intelligent life in the universe, I do think we are probably the only intelligent life in our solar system, but that is only 1 star and 9 planets.
I do have doubts that they are visiting earth. I dont know for sure and it is entirely possible though, just not likely considering how much more advanced they would be than us. Why wouldn't they just land and do whatever they wanted instead of making crop circles, experimenting on cattle and people, etc?
ever heard of solipsism
You cant prove to me that anything exists other than myself
