What is the likleyhood that we are not alone in the universe
When you look out at the night sky and all the stars is it just possible that there is life out there? Or are we alone?
Every star in the universe adds up to the chance so there is a great possibility that another form of life exists somewhere out there.
This is a great and vast question. I don't know how to answer it. This is the type of question I can go into my garden, drink 3 cups of coffee, watch the wildlife - birds, reptiles, insects, and ponder the concept 'life' as a definition. I'm stuck on that for now, so I can't really answer this question, but it is an awesome question.
You know this universe is so big there has to be more to it then just earth.One thing though if there is life on another planet I dont believe they would be green.
There is bound to be living things out there. Each star is possibly the home to a planet that contains life. There are billions of stars, and billions more of planets. We might not encounter complex life forms within our lifetimes, because even out most advance telescopes can only see so much of the universe.
We are most likely not alone. Not only has bacterial evidence been found on other planets in our solar system, and I believe on asteroids that hit the earth, but also life sustaining water was recently discovered in deep space. The ingredients for life are out there. No reason to be believe they haven't come together elsewhere to create life in the universe.
Recently there have been many exoplanets discovered in a small area of the night sky so it seems that most if not all stars have planets. If you do the sums and assume that there are around 1000000000 million stars in a galaxy and 1000000000 galaxies in the observable Universe then it seems obvious to me that there has to be life and probably intelligent life out there. Problem is how do we visit them because of the unbelievable distances involved.
I can't give a percentage on this, but think it could be likely. This is a hard question for someone who knows more than I do about astronomy and things of that nature. I will watch and see what comes around on this ?.

Are we alone in the universe?Scientists are beginning to discover other planets in our galaxy (Milky Way) that closeley resemble the parameters that spawned life on earth. Approx 2000 so far. Do you think there is indeed life on other worlds and could it be more advanced then us?

Do you believe that there is life on other planets besides Earth and what makes you think so.There are so many schools of thought (religious and secular) about life on earth and other planets. Are we alone in the universe or did life sprang into being elsewhere? Did God only have enough time for...

The reality is that we are alone in this eternal, dark, and cold universe. Why can't we accept this reality? Death is the end. There is no heaven, and there is no hell. We do not need religion in order to have a purpose in life. The purpose is to survive and not harm...

Why do you believe in extra terrestrial life?I'm looking for your reasons. What evidence can you provide?

Many scientists believe their is life on other planets. Not on Mars or Venus but in the next Solar System. What do you think and should NASA take this issue seriously?

He could have done it in four or five days if He didn't insist on making most heavenly objects thirteen billion light years distant. Just showing off?
