Extraterrestrial life.

So people, what's your opinion? Does extraterrestrial life exist? If so, where in the universe? If so, do you think it's intelligent or not?

My opinion: I think it doesn't exist. Well, I think intelligent extraterrestrial life doesn't exist, I'm not opposed the idea of microbial or bacterial aliens.

In fact, there's a whole field of Astronomy/Biology dedicated to this, called Astrobiology.

So, discuss.

EDIT: Oops, that second option in the poll should say "No, extraterrestrial life doesn't exist". If a moderator can be bothered, please change it.

I reckon that there is life out there.

However, I think that anything alive is not as intelligent as us humans.

This is based around this Bible verse from the Old Testament:

"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them." - Genesis 1:27

there is substantial evidence supporting the existence of extraterrestrial life.


and even if i was going to buy that bible verse, it doesn't prove anything. it simply says that humans were made in God's image, nothing about intelligence.

this is why you never base opinions off of a 2000 year old text that has more interpretations than Braid's ending.

Took the words right out of my mouth.

There are several places in our own solar system that either were once able to host life, or are currently able. Scientists discover more all the time. I wouldn't be surprised if there were organisms within our solar system.

OK, I guess you're right, that doesn't mean anything to somebody who sees the Bible as just a 2000 year old book. But I never said that I believed there was no life out there, I said that there was, but less intelligent. I had already taken that evidence "supporting the existence of extraterrestrial life"

However, if there was a more intelligent species out there, wouldn't they have either found Earth themselves, or recieved our signals that have been sent out?

So, I stand by my point, I think there is life out there, but not as intelligent as our race of humans.

Just because they got our signals doesn't mean they know how to respond. And just because they're more intelligent doesn't mean they can find us. It doesn't even mean they're looking for us.

Or maybe they did, and they're watching you right now.

We've only been looking at the heavens with radio waves for about half a century. Since radio waves travel at the speed of light, the furthest away that our signals could have reached by now is around 50 light years. At least I think that's right.

It's possible. Maybe aliens hid some sort of machine in the Bermuda Triangle to kill some of us and examine the bodies. Maybe they're watching us right now as we advance. Maybe they buried a bunch of high tech battle machines deep into the Earth's Crust millions of years ago and plan an invasion in the near future...or maybe they're just fairy tales.

Or maybe they're whales. Whales came here millions of years ago from outer space.

That sounds a lot like War of the Worlds.

SETI is constantly scanning the skies with radio light, sending out signals that can be deciphered into pictograms of the human race.
