If scientists could prove there's life on another planet,how would that affect your current beliefs?
Depending on the quality of the proof, it may affect my beliefs in the credibility of scientists.
If the planet is in our solar system then it would cause me to wonder how likely it is that either on obtained life from the other or a common source, or whether they spawned independantly which would seem much less likely.
I would wonder how much different is that life from ours. Does it have DNA, for example.
I would wonder how long it's been there and how much it's evolved.
It wouldn't really change any belief of mine.
It wouldn't affect my current beliefs at all.
I've always assumed there had to be life out there somewhere, it's ignorant to think only ONE planet in the entire universe could have a complex biological system that sustains life.
It wouldn't affect my current beliefs in the least. I always believed in possibilities. I never had limited beliefs. There are things existing that we have never heard of nor thought about. This universe is vast. In fact, the universe is beyond vast. There are lifeforms that we have never heard of. We don't know everything. We are learning or should be learning each day & as we progress as a culture, civilization, & species.
Nothing, the universe is unlimited big in size, therefore, if life could happen on Earth, there must be another planet that have life. The only question is whether we would be in contact with them. But I won't recommand contact with alien life, until we know more about them, because they could be hostile,
It would probably depend on what kind of life that they found, and where they found it.
Keep in mind that anything we see today out there is just a snapshot that is millions or billions of years old.
If they found it in our solar system then, I wouldn't really care, as it might already be here on Earth, or not. In which case, it hasn't done anything, and ignorance is bliss.
Feel free to delete my answer, for any reason.

If they asked for volunteers to go, on a one way space trip to a new planet, would you volunteer?To reach another planet, it would take so long that families may be sent, so that, even though the parents may die of old age, the children or grandchildren could reach and populate the new planet.

If we had visitors from another planet, what would be the first question you would ask them?That's if we could communicate with them.

Is it a worthy quest to find life else where in the universe even if it's a microbe?Mankind has mostly alsways beleived that we are alone in the Universe and that the Earth is the center of Creation. Would discovery of life forms else where in the Universe change the course of human history,...
