What is Your Opinion That Life Excists Elseware In The Universe

    I study Astronomy for a hobby and love nothing more than to take my telescope out on a clear night.    I love to find objects which I have never seen before.  Seeing another galaxie many light years away for the first time is exciting as hell to me.   Even though looking at these objects appear to be small and very fuzzy even with the darkest skies and good objects.

    It simply amazes me to look at something where the light I am seeing has left that object thousands or millions of years ago.   WHAT A CONCEPT TO THINK ABOUT.

    Many of you I am sure have looked through a telescope and have seen the rings of Saturn, If you have not YOU SHOULD.   Make this a priority before you die.

    Saturn is a reletively close object it is just over 800 million miles from Earth.   If you calculate the how long it takes light to travel from Saturn To Earth it is somewhere around 9 hours.

    So when you get the opportunity to view Saturn Just think about the fact that the light you are seeing at the moment left there roughly 9 hours ago.


    Now we know there are billions of galaxies  in the Universe many of them millions of light years away,    What do you think the chances are that life excists somewhere else.

    For Me I dont see how it could not.


    Are you a believer or Not???

      Oh I am a believer,  like you I love to put my thoughts and eyes out in space and feel as insignificant and yet completely significant at the same time.  Why?  Cause we are the observers of this massive Universe, all to ourselves at least for now. 

      I do imagine the possibilities of life else where, would they look like us, think like us, what sort of society would they build, what do they breath, how do they travel, are they advanced or primative... 

      I can't imagine there not being life somewhere else when all the componets or elements to life exist already, it makes the probability of life pretty good if not factually sound.  I guess only time will tell.  I mean once we can effectively travel the Universe at some sort of spead condusive to our life expectancy,  I know were gonna find something so amazing out there that everything down here will look trivial.  smile 

      Glad to find another asto-lover!  smile

      This universe is fully alive.We are not the only ones alive as we like to think so.Man has comes across aliens and spirits unexplainable since ages. I read about a scientist with the United States who was sacked for claiming an encounter with an alien.He also said earlier Presidents of the States had also encountered this entity which was an intergalactic master of the light.They could not say so as man would have called him mad and you cannot have a madman as your president.Man cannot handle the fact that there is superior intelligence,superior entities in this universe and is contend in thinking he is alone or rather the only thing alive with such intelligence.His ego cannot handle it.
      In the arctic scientists dug a hole a km deep.When they bought the material to the surface they realised it was full of life,full of microbes which started thriving in surface conditions and were dormant for god knows how many thousands of years.Life goes into micro and macro and we as humans are still very naive about life around us.I have seen a UFU and being a navigating officer I know the difference between a star and a satellite,this was something so different and its movements - hovering at a range too close to be a star and then moving at super speeds into the sky and out of sight.

      The moment you submit to the point of light,
      The word death is no more such a fright,

      Infinity you become at once,
      The human form you then trounce.

      Thats when you realise everything is alive,
      The wind,the rain even the nectar of the bee hive.

      This universe is very much alive and very intelligently alive.The basic fabric is a tissue made of light of love-supremely intelligent and pervading all-God.

      The endless expane in front of us all,
      Is as alive as the closest insect to crawl. smile

    I believe there is life elsewhere, but in other planes of existence, or with the ability to go from plane to plane. They are either more or less advanced physically or spiritually. Some of us would not be able to recognize their existence. I believe there are various planes of this planet that have other "forms" of  life. smile

      Mulder, I have some very "odd" pics I took with my digital camera a couple of years ago. I saved them onto CD, and I don't know what to make of them... They were SUPPOSED to be pics of the moon, with a bright star right next to it, (which, btw, I have taken MANY pics of the night sky, and only had this happen ONCE... What showed up on my camera looks like... well, like bright lights, connected together by colored "lines" (Kind of like a heart-rate-monitor you see at the hospitals... Or in one, like lightning connecting the "dots")... They are very STRANGE looking, and nobody can figure them out...What do you think???

    I seen a UFO. Course people who didnt see it always tell me what I saw. If you see the real thing there is not much doubt. Saw a couple of light streaks not that long ago, one chasing the other pretty low. I was told it was the space station with the shuttle chasing it. If that were true I would be seeing the space station all the time. But never have.

    I believe in other life out there. And not just single celled organisms. This universe is too large to say we are the only life around. And I believe it is possible for them to have developed a form of travel that can bring them to Earth and back. Just because we waste our time developing technology that can play  50 Cent songs on a media player the size of a baseball card doesn't mean other life forms are wasting theirs on the same things. Who knows, we'll all find out one day.

  14. Chloe Comfort profile image58
    Chloe Comfortposted 9 years ago

    I do not believe that we are alone in the universe. However, I do believe that we are a unique world. Being just the right distance from the sun, having our moon (without it Earth might not have been inhabitable) and the atmosphere that we have. There are no other planets (we know of) that have the same conditions as Earth that allow it to be habitable. I do believe that we are the only human life form in the the universe but I also believe that there is other life out there. How can there not be? There is so much we have yet to know, mysteries left to be uncovered, knowledge to be discovered. So many historical/biblical/ancient accounts mention objects similar to ufo's and aliens (cave paintings!) in their writings/transcripts. There has to be some basis of truth to these accounts. Ancient civilizations did not just come into existance with all that technology ingrained into their brains (Egyptians/Sumarians). It had to come from somewhere. If you haven't read "Chariots Of The Gods" by VonDaiken (?) you might want to pick it up. Touches on similar opinions and has some interesting information that makes you think.

    It may be that the world is just not ready to receive this news. I believe confirmation will come when we are ready for it and no sooner - unfortunately, that may take a while. I am a believer.

      Maybe no other planets for human life, but what's to say extraterrestrial life doesn't require some of the conditions found on other planets to survive. Just a thought.

      1. Chloe Comfort profile image58
        Chloe Comfortposted 9 years agoin reply to this

        I agree. I'm sure that different types of life forms require different types of living conditions. I do believe that "some" type of life form (while not human) does exist on the other planets. Could be some type of microbe or bacteria but I have no doubt that there is something there.

      2. Chloe Comfort profile image58
        Chloe Comfortposted 9 years agoin reply to this

        I am absolutely sure that some kind of extraterrestrial life is out there. There just has to be. We cannot be the only planet that has life on it. We've shown that life can thrive in even the most extreme environments. I'm sure that there are living organisims on other planets - just not the kind we're used to seeing.

    There was another person debunked by seeing all kinds of things under the earth.  Look up Hollow Earth in Google and see what that comes up with.  There is a guy that goes by the name Right To Life Male and he is way into the Mars having life on it and he even has pictures that he shares. I believe he mnight have his own site and will ask him and share it here.  I will have to get him into this thread, but it is difficult to get those that are on MSN groups to add their stuff here--most times.  There are some of us who do both and I am one of them.
    We have to be really arrogant to think that there isn't anything else out there.  I had a site once that had the complete discriptions of the aliens that we have seen on this earth and that have visited here.  Of course I can't find it now only becasue I don't remember what it was that I looked up in the first place.  I have seen a UFO--hovering over the front of our mountain.  I thought it was the reflection on the window of the dashboard, but I rubbed my eyes three times and the lights were higher the what would be relfected off the dashboard.  I was in the passenger seat.  It was scary, but interesting at the same time.  I haven't ever seen them again.

        Indeed Lady G. Thank you for the plug. Anyone may freely access my research at my other website: http://snakeandthehunterenterprises.com/mars1.html. The research may be freely used, and you cannot spend money there.
           In 2006 I spotted an unusual object in a Spirit rover photo that did not look quite natural. That induced me to start looking around, spotting more objects and that led to the founding of the Martian Artifact Research Society. (http://groups.msn.com/artifactsofmars). We deal strictly with photographic evidence on Mars and elsewhere of artifacts, current life and fossils.
        I am not trying to bring NASA (Never A Straight Answer) down. I just want them to be honest with us and disclose what they found.

    Totally believe life exists elsewhere.  We are not alone big_smile

    I've been a stargazer most of my life.  I tried the telescope way and found it cumbersome and chose instead to have a mat on the ground and a wide open space with horizons at last West to East.  Lucky in Australia we have magnificent views of the Milky Way.  It's hypnotic and wonderous and unfathomable all at the same time.

    I've not seen any odd life forms with my physical eyes, but using my third eye - that's a different story.  But, still I've not seen green people.  Not to say I don't believe they exist, but I've not been introduced.

      There are probably a couple of reasons why.  First, fear, widespread panic because it would change everything we thought we knew.  Second, we don't know what they could do, are they nice or mean??  Thrid, as I hate to bring this up in a science forum, the utter destruction of all religions. 

      Though if they just came clean I think that it would ease peoples fears because they have not hurt us yet and so it is not likely that they would and I think it would be possitive hope because we are not alone. 

      I would say that they are probably trying to proctect us.

      Yes I believe in the same.In Parmhansa Yoganadas book Autobiography of a Yogi he talks about his Master coming to him after death and telling him he is in a different dimension for more evolved souls and that he is teaching them love there.Paramhansa Yogananda also says some things which his master revealed to him he cannot share that with us.

      Then the Egyptians-in the Pyramids they dicovered these norrow tunnels which they thought initially were ventilation ducts.Upon sending a robot into the tunnel they realised that it points to the seven sisters and that the evoloved souls being the Pharaohs would go and reside there after Death- the Egyptian belief.Also remarkably the pyramids have been build identically to the belt of Orion ,i.e two big pyramids and a small pyramid I think  is set 7 degrees away.

      Then the great mystic Meher Baba is considered to be guiding souls which have departed.

      Too much mystery.

    I think, regardless of your religious beliefs, it's totally arrogant to think that we are the only ones in the entire vast universe.  This place is bigger than any of us truly realize.  To try and take it all in would surely drive most of us out of our heads.  There simply has to be something else out there.  I think it's almost impossible for there not to be.

    And for that matter, think of the possibilities of what might be out there!  Let your imagination have a field day.

    Although I am a skeptic about most things, I think that there is a good possibility of, at the very least, the existence of non-intelligent life. You might want to do a search on the Kepler mission. It is a NASA project to launch a specially designed unmanned craft into space that will be able to detect earth sized planets within the habitable zones of other stars in our galaxy. It is set to launch in the spring of next year. It should be interesting to see what it will discover.

    It really doesn't matter what our opinion is about life on other planets. Let's just stop wasting time and stick with the owner's manual, the Bible. God tells us about our origin, meaning, morality and destiny in His Word.

    Man's opinion doesn't mean anything in reality because man is not the creator of the other planets, God is. And He has spoken, in the Bible. Earth is the center of His plans and His will for mankind, not the surrounding planets. Those were created in addition to the other things in space to show you God's glory and power.

    Stick with the Bible, you'll find your answers there. You will only find circles in humanistic scientism.

      This is a science forum. We are not interested in your silly beliefs here.

      Your opinion is as worthless as your out-dated beliefs.

      The world is not flat.......

        Well, as long as we have the think about it/dont thihnk about it... Thinkaboutit77 ... The bible is clear, VERY clear that extra-terestrial life exists.
        Furthermore, it is clear that it is gentically compatible with human life. Check out Genesis 6. In English it is translated "The Sons of the God"   Please note that the only time that phrase is used is in Job 1, where "The Sons Of God" (including Satan, btw) presented themselves before God.

        So, while I disagree with Mark on many things, I do agree with him that your opinions are wrong.  But based on your criteria, not his.  I do believe that before you use the bible to state your opinions, you should be somewhat familiar with what the bible actually says.

        The "Sons of God" in Genesis 6 are not human. Their off spring are what we would call today, "Mutants'. 

        So, it is possible to think and believe the bible.

        The bible also says that it is God's Glory to hide things and the glory of kings to find them. And it also says that he wants to make us all kings.  So ... God has not hiddent things FROM us, but he has hidden things FOR us.  That is why Jesus called the Kingdom a hidden treasure. We are supposed to search. We are supposed to question.  It is clear from scirputre that God delights in these types of questions ... else why would he say "Come, Let us reason together."

        And based on my reading of the bible, God is delighted with Mark's unshakeable quest to find true things, his constant questioning, his belief in morality,  and though Mark does not believe in God.  God clearly believes in Mark.

        Sorry, Mark, didn't mean to agree with you, nor flatter you, but you and I were offended by the same guy for differnet reaons. .. wink lol

            I probably do need to go repent or someting for being unloving to the guy. Because I do agee that the bible has the answers, but only if you actually read it with an open heart for understanding and are prepared to reject other people's interpretation of what it means.

            I prefer to help people understand the bible not use it to make them feel like crap about themselves.

            But to come in to a science forum and state an authority that others don't recognize, is, at best naive'. 

            I believe in 'aliens" because the bible says they're there. They call them angles, creatures or whatever, but wherever they're from, it's not here. That makes them extra-terreistrial. So, in a way my arugment is just as unscientific.  But if you're going to use a book as an authority, whether, the Bible or Pascal, or Newton, Or Einstein, you really should know what it says.

              Well, from my previous interactions with Donthinkaboutit, he seems to be a big fan of the "tough love" approach favored by many of his ilk.

              You know - "I love you so much I am going to see if I can get the law changed so you do what is good for you," sort of love.....

              So, you are probably OK.

              Not sure I would call angels "extra-terrestrial," though. Perhaps "supra-terrestrial." ?

              I mean, according to your book, all life on earth is "extra-terrestrial." It didn't originate here, it was placed here by god.......

              Where he made it, remains a mystery. lol

        Intelligent design is not necessary in order for all things to be unified and interdependent. It sounds like you're suggesting that either there is a God/creator - or - everything is completely random. The fact is, nothing is random. But that doesn't prove the existence of a sole creator or intelligent designer.

        So we can jump off the planet we rape and pillage and do it somewhere else?  Not wanting to do the greenie thing here, but sometimes this escape route is not well thought out.  Perhaps alien life forms have their own set of issues and having to contend with ours is not in their best interests.  Good to keep themselves incognito for as long as possible.  We humans have allot to learn about societal living and if we can't keep our soil clean - blah blah blah, it's all been said before.

        And the space junk - geez.  I wonder if they think we are the kingdom of the dregs already, who would want to make themselves known to a planet whos backyard is a disgusting mess.  Best not invite them for a bbq, they may get a closer look and run for the nearest black hole. roll

          Lita I think that there is a possibility, beyond our Milky Way, of life.  Maybe this life can teach us advancements in science that no one of this earth has ever thought of.  Like how to use fossil fuels without pollution.  Or how to cure cancer with throat spray.  A hundred years ago, who would've ever guessed that a sugar cube with live polio germs would be the cure that has saved a million or more lives?  Where as Jewel is so centered, I find that you are a person who is capable of seeing the possible advancements that another life force could offer us.

            I'm extremely broad minded and love the science approach, at heart I'm a great cynic if that helps you.  I speak from a lateral standpoint and not one or the other.

            But you have to admit we are making mince meat of this place, no?  And how can we know for sure knowledge from one planet applies to this one?  Love to know that one myself. 

            I love astronomy, it's fascinating and awe inspiring and am grateful to those who do the physical exploration work so I get the benefits of it.  But I'm not happy about space junk, are you?

                It's scarey and fascinating at the same time.  Fear of the unknown most likely.  I wonder though whether we have already discovered things that help us but are not being used or encouraged.  Leads into the darn conspiracy theories unfortunately.

                Correct me if I'm wrong, and maybe it's my cynical mind speaking, but I think we already know how to be better patrons of our own planet, we just don't bloody do it.

                The space junk - not much lateral thinking on this problem when they started launching rockets.  What goes up is meant to come down, except when the laws of gravity don't apply.  No excuse for not doing something about this problem.  Leaving it up there solves the garbage problem here, but only moves it to another place.  Same as dumping stuff in the ocean, it's out of sight, out of mind until it bites us on the bum in some shape or form, and it does eventually.

                Also I'm thinking twice about taking one of those tourist buses into space.  Likely to collide with an abandoned satellite.  Maybe it's a step closer to afterlife wanderings if you die up there?

    I remember a few years ago scientists found a form of life that they didn't know existed.  It is something that lives on a lobster's face and it's neither animal nor vegetable.  Then, shortly after that they found some kind of bacteria, also neither animal nor vegetable, that lives in hot springs - springs so hot they are almost steam.  There probably remain forms of life we have yet to discover on our own planet, let alone other planets. 

    I think that the odds are that someplace in this universe besides earth, there must be life.
