    Have you seen the History Channel show Ancient Aliens? With all the facts they give, do you believe? Why do you or why don't you?

      Aliens, as Extra Terrestrial Life, are a fact ...

      These Exist, in a Scattering, throughout the Physical Universe, and are Quadrupedal Life Forms ... of Organic nature... Four legged, load bearing type of Animals, with intellects nearing that of the Oxen and Camel ...
      { The Glorious Koran }

      But these do not Exist, in states promoted by Hoaxters, Science Fiction writers ... and Stephen Hawking... within the idea of a "super-intelligent" Aliens "Race" ... these are mere Theories, based in an orphaned thinking ... mere updated forays, into the Unknown, Reality of Life and Creation.

      Have you watched the famous Project Disclosure seminar? This is a short clip. The whole thing is 2 hours long with testimony from various sources on Aliens and UFO's. But I have to admit I have no idea what to make of this!!

    None(none may be an incorrect statement) of the stuff in that show is based on fact.

    As for living things on other planets. Absolutely there are other lifeforms out there. Ones that are smarter than us, however? That really remains to be seen.

    If there was solid concrete proof, NASA wouldn't be searching for life on Mars right now.

      I agree with Mikey, The sheer number of suitable planets indicates that somewhere there is other life forms. The fact that they haven't tried to contact us shows their advanced level of intelligence.

      NASA is still searching the moon for signs of life. I believe mars is being revisited primarily due to proximity. It's cheaper.

        There's evidence of methane being produced just under the Martian surface which could go some way to indicating the presence of bacteria on Mars.  Mars is a relatively inhospitable planet for the life we know, so if there is life on Mars than it increases the odds that planets from outside of the universe have life on them. And there currently a new planet outside of our solar system being discovered each week.

    Well, they come here but they don't want to contact us. I believe they visit here. There are too many signs all around. Look, thousand years ago, these ancient civilizations have drawings and paintings of alien like creatures. If they didn't see it, they couldn't guess how to draw it. All the structures, they are not built by humans alone. It's just not possible. Science is proving all of this information now. We are just now getting to the point where we can study all of this. There are too many sightings for it to be a hoax. The question is, what do they want? Why don't they contact us? However we look at it, they are here and have been for a long time. Their technology is way, way more advanced then ours.

    I believe their existence...
    From where do you hear about them? Usually from villages.
    And that's right, the only reason for that is because there is no light, so on nights it's very easy for them to take people for whatever they need to and no body will know about it.
    Even if people claims that aliens stole people from villages or just saying the saw, nobody believes for some reason, but aliens understand that, so of course they will continue hide there.

    You can understand it by yourself too, if an UFO will fly around the city (even at night) people can record that, but also they can send attacks (air force) against them.

        Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but enough time has passed to prove the existence of these uncapturable aliens.  What I want to know with a planet as violent as Earth is Why Would Aliens or Anyone That value their life come here.  Haven't Earth people proven time and again anything we don't understand or fear we destroy?

      I have my doubts over whether or not human kind was helped along by aliens early on. I do however think it is fairly probably that life does exist on other planets, based on the odds alone.

      Even if more advanced life exists out there, it is the same odds that make life so probable on other planets, that makes the chances of us ever meeting so improbable.

      When it comes to the evolution of man kind

      Might shed a little light on it all for you.

    interesting topic. ever since i was little this question has been bugging me,  and i still ask myself why the trouble of creating a big universe with billions of planet, only to breed only one life form, humans. I Like to think that we are not alone, but for me i dont really care as long they don't interfere in our business. i think humans are better on their own and better to be left alone as we are dangerous and unpredictable even to our very own kind

    yesterday on my Facebook feed, I noticed a youtube video of a woman warning about all the bird kills, fish kills, etc. so I started watching it.. then I noticed who it was, the woman who claims she is the mother of an alien race which is now making itself known on earth..   I believe there are other life forms in the universe, but this one is rather far-fetched for me.

  12. melpor profile image91

    Aliens are fiction. All the information about alien is based on misinformation. There are no evidence or facts that earth have been visitored by intelligent, extraterresterial life forms. Most of the hype about aliens were perpetuated by the 50s and 60s sci-fi movies and from rumors started from the weather balloon crash in Roswell back in the 1940s. Also the closest earth-like planet to us, if it can support life, is 10 light-years away. That mean traveling near the speed of light will take any intelligent life form more than 10 years just to get here. Any slower will take thousands of years or more. People for one reason or another refused to let go of this nonsense and if we are ever visited by aliens anytime soon I am pretty sure we all will know about it when and if it happen. The reason is because we will probably die from the microbes that they are carrying or they might die from the microbes here. Look what happened when the European explorers first set foot on the New World now called North America and South America. They almost wiped out the whole indigeous population on some of the islands because the people there were exposed to to an entirely new microbe (smallpox). Let us just hope we are not visited by aliens no time soon if they are out there.

    AskAshlie3433posted 13 years ago

    They have to be out there. Anyone that has saw one of these before know they take off as fast as light travels. It's not man made. If a human could make this, he would be braggin about it and wanting big money for it. They are real. They are out there and it is only a matter of time before we make contact.

  14. melpor profile image91
    melporposted 13 years ago

    AskAshlie3433, we should have made  contact by now with them. SETI has telescopes pointing out into space 24/7 for a least two decades searching for some form of intelligent communication signals. So far none has been found. Yes, they may be out there but that does not mean the life form  is intelligent, they may just be simple life forms similar to bacteria and viruses here on earth. AskAshlie just read my hub on "Aliens and UFOs from Another World, I don't Think So" to understanding why we probably have not been visited by extaterrestrial beings and why it probably won't happen any time soon. Also those shows such as "Ancient Aliens" on the History Channel do not prove the existence of visitors from another world; these are only speculations based on wishful thinking  and they are not factual. For example, the Nazca line drawings on the plains in South American were made by the people there hundreds of years ago and for many years some investigators thought they were made by beings from another world.

      Cagsil, I agree with you that there are probably other life forms out there, but they may not necessarily be humanoid in appearance or be intelligent. Most life forms out there are probably much more simpler than we are, they are probably microbes like bacteria and viruses.

        I would go as far as to say you'd be right with the statement that other life forms are out there.

        However, I would still be willing to wager the probability of humanoid consciousness existing elsewhere since it exists here. wink

    The truth, for now, lies somewhere between fact and fiction in the realm of probability.  The Drake equation is often quoted as proof of life elsewhere when it is merely a supposition regarding the probability of life elsewhere.

    The Drake equation states that:

        N = R^{\ast} \cdot f_p \cdot n_e \cdot f_{\ell} \cdot f_i \cdot f_c \cdot L \!


        N = the number of civilizations in our galaxy with which communication might be possible;


        R* = the average rate of star formation per year in our galaxy
        fp = the fraction of those stars that have planets
        ne = the average number of planets that can potentially support life per star that has planets
        fℓ = the fraction of the above that actually go on to develop life at some point
        fi = the fraction of the above that actually go on to develop intelligent life
        fc = the fraction of civilizations that develop a technology that releases detectable signs of their existence into space
        L = the length of time for which such civilizations release detectable signals into space.

    As from a physicists point of view: Well they certainly do exist but maybe not as we imagine them to be. Aliens or extraterrestrial lifeforms could be anything, from a protozoon to a life form we wouldn't even recognize (just think about the 10/11 (or maybe more?) dimensions that exist. They could easily occupy other dimensions or exist in different states of matter.
    We simply don't know - but what we do know, and this is a fact, is that the probability that our existence is unique in our universe (one of many universes) is nearly 0!
    If you really want a stunning and amazing presentation of what physicists and scientists in general have found out so far you HAVE to check out Discovery Channel's and Steven Hawkings documentary trilogy
    (right now its on sale (around 10 bucks) on amazon because the blu ray edition is supposed to come out soon: )

    He discusses the probability of e.t. lifeforms, and how probable time travel is and answers questions about black holes etc. The effects are really amazing!
    Check this trailer (the best attempt to explain how big the universe is!!!)
    This is the best thing you have ever seen big_smile

      Belief is a powerful thing.  People still believe their is a Lockness Monster, Without technology today we can use heat sensers from above to spot a fleeing suspect but we can't find Big Foot.

      I saw a program where a woman was raped they catch the guy put him in jail for how long I can't remember but later on they discovered his DNA wasn't a match for the rape so he was set free but the rape victim rejected the DNA results and still blamed the man for raping her.

        Well science is always 30-50 years ahead compared to what the masses know, when it comes to technology. Trust me I don't want to boast or anything but there are far more secret and/or unknown science research groups than you or I could possibly imagine. Bad thing though I've never heard of a project involving Aliens or Space Travel or anything like that but if someone is working on it they couldn't tell so we really know nothing (that's also true about our own planet if you think about all the new animal species we discover every year - truly stunning!).

             If science is as head as you've pointed out would that then not explain the lights in the skies and the creatures you've also eluded to as perhaps aliens people thought they saw during some of these test scientist maybe making?

            Well yes that explains the most part of these phenomena (there are a large number of secret aircrafts patrolling and they too have to be equipped with lights due to international laws so that should explain the many red dot sightings in the chinese midlands wink) , but scientists discover even more things they can't explain and that's where the fun starts wink
            Some guys are still trying to prove that the "WOW-Signal" is alien nature, but we can now officially say it wasn't from earth and it's nothing we've ever seen before but that leaves us with more questions than we had before doing SETI research and sending messages containing our location into space...
