I believe in Alien life, I've watched the movies...
Also, if we really are the only life form in the whole vastness of space, that's one hell of a waste of space.
Here's another, throughout the history of the written word (I use the term word loosely, <I'm also describing hieroglyphics as a form of written documentation or word>) there have been approx. 3000 life forms not recognised as human, but above human, some were even concidered as deities, Humans in those ancient times weren't exactly neanderthals, so if there is any truth to those documents, they must (or at least did) exist. Hell if there's another earth like planet, then it stands to reason life, possibly even what we accept as the norm here. Exists there as well...




By that logic Harry Potter, Superman, SpiderMan, Thor, Unicorns, Mr. Hanky ect should have existed.

Given past posts by some members of this forum on this subject, it's hard to tell that sometimes.

Definitely has it backwards. Statistically, there HAS to be extra-terrestrial life. Whether it's intelligent or not remains to be seen, but there's a significant positive possibility that there is, somewhere.


There doesn't HAVE to be life somewhere else... Statistically speaking, the odds of the chain of events that happened to create earth as we know it were, quite frankly, unable to be calculated, due to the fact that 1. we have no idea how many planets there are in the (ever expanding) universe, 2. we don't know of any that have life and thus 3. The only logical conclusion is that, until it is proven otherwise, we are the only planet in the universe that HAS to have life...because it does. Until proven otherwise, you can't call your statement anything other than a guess.

It's not MY argument. It's a viewpoint held by the majority of scientists specialised in the relevant fields.
