To be truthful I don't know but I also don't care. We have enough problems with what we have.

My guess is that yes there is. The real question, of course: Is there intelligent life here on earth?

Blogger Silver Willow said...
I truly believe that we have to have massive egos to think that we are ALL there is to it, and that has nothing to do with God. No reason to believe He only created us!

We need to feel we are not alone.

I know not. But sometimes think that the surest sign of intelligent life is that they have NOT contacted us. We need to learn to be housetrained here on our own planet before we could be welcome guests anywhere else.

It is not a belief, but I figure the odds are certainly in favor of it.

Blogger Arkansas Patti said...
Oh I certainly hope so and I hope they have a plan how to fix us and make us nicer.

Yes, I do believe there's intelligent life in the universe, but will they be friendly. Let's hope that if they say they want to serve man, they don't mean as in a cookbook. Yikes.

There's none here so I guess there could be some elsewhere! :)

If there is other intelligent life, they will stay hidden and not make themselves known to us! Have a wonderful holiday and a happy 2017!

There HAS to be.
It just isn't possible that in this vast universe we are the only ones.
I just wish we could find them, or they could find us.

I just don't see how there couldn't be. I'm sure they won't look the same, but they're out there... somewhere.

I'm not sure about "intelligent" life, but definitely life. I don't believe we are the only living beings that make up the universe.

I dunno. But the geek in my hopes we're not.

Love this comment.

Ditto that.

Of course. I took college astronimy. The prof said that maybe if only 5% of the billions of planets have carbon-based life, mabe a few have humaniods in different stages of civilization, n maybe 1% of those are at the space-flight stage.... it is more likely there is someone out there, than not - but not at a planet close by.

The closest likelihood is Alpha Centuri, I remember one in Orions' Belt area n near the Horse-head Nebula.

If some are here they are way past our knowledge!

In many ways, I hope we are not alone in space. But then again, what if they aren't human-friendly? So it's a gamble. On the one hand, we could make contact with a race of beings that have the answer to immortality and the cure for cancer. On the other hand, we could be opening ourselves up for intergalactic slavery and annihilation. It's 50-50, really.
There's a happy thought for you, hmm?
Btw, I finally found you!
