    No,I dont think we are alone in the universe.
    It is more feeling than rational.

    Our sun is considered to be a star. There are millions of other stars out there in the universe. In theory, if we were able to get close enough to them, they "should" appear similar to our sun.
    Although I can't completely convince myself of something that I have never seen, I could realistically see the possibility, that there are planets out there that orbit those suns. It's hard to believe that there wouldn't be, at least somewhere in the universe.
    If that's the case and there are planets to go with other stars... Then I could very easily see the possibility that there are planets that hold at least "some" form of life.
    Hey, wouldn't it be neat, if the things that floated aimlessly through space, were all remnants of wars that took place in other galaxies? Asteroids have to come from somewhere!
    Ooooo! Here's a good one... What if Haley's Comet isn't so much a comet? Considering that it has a regular occurrence. Maybe it's a distress signal, or something like that. Shot out from a distant galaxy in an effort to seek help. Or maybe, it's just the hopes of someone, or something, that exists in a far off place. Maybe they just want to shoot out a warning flare to show others that they are out there, and that whoever sees it will know, they are not alone in the universe.
    Hmm, mysteries of the unknown!
    And as far as universe, would you consider that also to include the ground under our feet? Or the air we breath?
    I'm referring to the undead, ghosts, demons, angels, anything in the spiritual realm. These things could exist on our own planet, right in front of our noses. Although we can't see them, it does mean that we aren't alone, if they do exist, that is!
    I don't know, just some food for thought. I don't really sit around pondering the great unknown. I got better things to do. But, I just happen to have this goofy creative mind thing going for myself, and this was a pretty neat question, that gave me a chance to come up with some unique ideas. Or maybe I should just lay off the pain meds. haha!
    Then again, maybe just for the heck of it, we should fire off a super flaming missile into space, in the same direction that Haley's comes from. Make document of it for posterity. Who knows, maybe hundreds of years from now, aliens will get the message that we are here. Then they will come find us and say hello... another couple hundred years after that, once they traveled from so many light years away, that we can't even come up with a number to describe it!

    Not a chance. The mathematical probability defines that as impossible.

    Of corse not! We cannot just be the only living things in the unvierse. There must be another species out there!

    the universe is to put it blunt, massive, i think it would be very arogant of us to think we're alone  \0.0/

    not a chance. for all we know there could even be another demention here on earth that we aren't aware of. i honestly believe that there is life forms on many other planets but we just haven't found those planets yet, but i bet some of these life forms have found us.

    We're not alone in this universe, have you never watched Star Trek?

    No, we are not alone. I think that there are other species out there. Not only that but depending on what you belive, there are apparently 11 other dementions that live along ours that we can't see or touch.

    No, in such a large amount of territory there has to be something else surely?

    I don't think were alone, its hard to believe there's not one other planet out there that has life on it.

    Since we are all star-dust, we should not be alone.

    Apart from other forms of energy what else is there is in space?

    No, I don't think we are alone.  There are new discoveries of new planets and species all the time, to assume that there is nothing else out there would be the same as believing the world is flat.

    Absolutely not! There may not be another human race exactly like us but I have no doubt that we are not the only race of 'intellectual and emotional' beings!
