    Do You Believe In Aliens? Do You Think We Are Alone?

    Do you believe in Aliens from outer space. Do you think they will some day show up here on earth. You know I really thought that by this point in my life ( age 62 ) that aliens from outer space would have already showed up here on earth. It does still make me wonder. Maybe just maybe they look just like you and me and not that little grey guy. What do you think?

    Given the immensity of the Universe, it seems likely that there must be types of life elsewhere in it. It may not be the same kind of life we're used to, though (indeed, I'd think that likely...)

      I agree just setting there looking up there has to be someone up there some where. I just wonder when they are going to show up here.

      The odds of life existing in the universe is 1 in 20 Trillion, if memory serves. Astrophysicists know that there are a minimum of 20 factors that must occur in order for a planet to support life, but this does not guarantee life will occur or how.

    That's a good question.  I was never really into the belief of aliens, but the vastness of the universe does make you wonder.  You would think one of the satelites we've sent out into far space would have detected something.

    I believe there is a basis to the phenomena that is seen in the skies and felt on earth. No, these creatures are not intergalactic space travelers, but they do belong to this world, so they are not "aliens" in the technical sense.

    Because every encounter people have had with these beings have been eerily similar to encounters with the demonic, it is likely we are dealing with demon entities who are having a field-day with our imaginations, by perpetrating a grand hoax in order to usher in a grand entrance and satanic delusion, thus appearing to be something they are not.

    The universe is unbelievably soooooo big life can exist anywhere but the question is do they look similar to us considering our own planet is so diversified and do they have television box in their home and watch movies. I sometime think God doesn't want us to know about the existence of other civilzation outside our home planet since we are quite known for creating war and destruction and so  he placed other planets tooooooo far for us to reach. Thinking of the movie War of the World its better they don't find us.

    I'm an alien agnostic myself. Having seen no convincing evidence they exist, I reserve judgment, unwilling to say yea or nay.

    Belief in the existence of alien life forms, however, is characteristic of people whose faith is science.They even set up the SETI program to maintain continual contact with the heavens, seeking communication with them. It is analogous to the cycle of prayer in the cathedrals and monasteries, which maintains continual contact with heaven, seeking communication with it. That the two are merely different expressions of the same human instinct is strong evidence that science is as much a faith-based ideology as religion.

    I haven't ever had an encounter with an alien as far as I can recall, but that doesn't mean to say that they don't exist. It's entirely possible in my mind. In fact it's arrogant to assume we're the only intelligent life forms in the universe - that only extends to the known universe. Most of us don't know what lies beyond that.

    There is no way we are alone. There are so many places in our multi-verse that we are just learning about. We don't necessarily attract "aliens" because we have difficulty getting along with ourselves--we need to evolve a bit more in my opinion before the "aliens" would be interested in having a relationship, no?

    To believe we are alone in this universe would be, and forgive me, foolish. There are too many planets, stars etc. for that to be the case. The vastness of the universe is not measured by man of this planet so we really cannot say what is out there to discover one day.

    After studying the systems of our Earth, Oceans and Space, I have a hard time thinking that we are the only intelligent life forms.

    Looking at photos of the Earth and Space, that we were able to capture beginning in the 1960's and 1970's, vs the images of our planet available on Google Earth today, it does not seem unreasonable to assume that other life forms have and do exist in the vast extremities in the Universe.

    When we move from arrogant thinking, no longer believing that we are given a free-for-all license to dominate Creation, and move away from boxed-in thinking; and begin to re-feel the Responsibility to preserve and care for our only habitation, we may allow our intelligence to truly work toward a humility that may go toward our salvation.

    The photo above, is courtesy of ESA.International - This is a Magnetar, which if viewed a long time actually shows life, and hurts my eyes. To me it is similar to the Earth's core.

    We humans limit our divine abilities by choosing arrogance and ignorance.

    The aliens are ...... us....and have been here all along. I think they are either time-travelers, future evolutionary 'humans' studying us like we do monkeys or from other dimension that we can't observe and that why we only see quick glimpses that happened to intersect our x,y,z 3-d world.

    Millions of people on this earth have had some kind of intervention, or sightings of aliens from another world or possible dimension.They have been described in may forms:short and grey with large heads and huge eyes, tall and Scandinavian in features, reptilian and scaly in appearance, draped in a brown cloak and no clear facial appearance, tall and thin with long arms and legs and enlarged craniums,metallic and robotic in appearance, appearing on some sort of hovering disc like craft, with only the upper portion of their body exposed and appearing to wear some kind of helmet, Insect-like in appearance and exaggerated limbs, Their craft has appeared as metallic discs, round, triangular, globe like, or similar to a big air filled balloon, long and cigar-shaped, wide as forty to several hundred yards in diameter by airline pilots, policemen, professionals in every walk of life, and many as common and down to earth as a person can get.They have been seen over the centuries and every civilization and describe in books, paintings and on walls of old buildings and cave walls. In India the stories and drawings are quite evident almost everywhere and will boggle the mind in their description. In native american lore and recordings on cliff walls the stories of the star visitors are seen in the western areas of the United States. Thousands of testimonies and many under hypnosis, of alien abductions and using human as guinea pigs have been recorded and books have been written about the subjects. Because of drama and fictitious accounts seen in movies, truth has been covered up and much nay saying has occurred. Native people in Asia, Island countries, Hispanic cultures, English cultures, as well as many others, and world wide accounts have had to be recognized as fact and not hearsay.USOs and UFOs have been seen all over the Bermuda Triangle, Devil's Sea and world wide, by military and civilian populations. A person would have to be like the bird that sticks it head in the sand, not to acknowledge that there are extraterrestrials and have been for eons.

      True a lot of speculation is going on, yet some craft have been spotted in outer space regions and entering our atmosphere . Much conjecture and theories as to wheter they live within the recesses of the earth and or in the deepest oceans off coasts.

    Hi crazyhorseghost!

    You know, this really isn't an easy question to answer. It is not just an 'opinion' we're talking about here.

    What I mean to say is: Our ability to make an 'intelligent' inference, let us say, about the possibility of the existence of other intelligent (sentient) life in the universe, in any serious way is --- wait for it --- contingent upon our ability to mentally comprehend the universe.

    For example, we can go to the county fair and look at a huge jar of jelly beans and make a reasonable guess about how many jellybeans there are in it. We can do this because of a long familiarity with jars (we use them for all kinds of purposes: pickling, canning fruits and vegetables, storing all kinds of things, etc).

    We can estimate how much a jar (depending on its size) can hold.  A jar, then, is well within the range of human mental comprehension. We are well able to intellectually encapsulate the capacity and uses of a jar.

    You could even cover the jar and have us make guesses about what is in it. Again, we are familiar with the uses of a jar. We cannot say that -- even now -- about the universe. We are not familiar with all of the ways in which the emergence of sentient life might be possible, for one small thing.

    As a matter of speculation I think it is more important that we continue to expand our knowledge of the 'jar' of the universe before we can reach the point where we can say something intelligent about its possible other inhabitants.

      This sounds very well put, however, tell that to the several million people on the planet who have had first hand interactions with not only UFOs, but alien life forms in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.Conjecture is not the same as experiencing..

    This subject is very interesting to me.

    I think aliens are a very good possibility. I might sound crazy, but I believe they actually created us.

    This might be a little out there but I believe they made us to be their slaves.  They wanted a society of people that they could control.  Neanderthals just wouldn't listen.  So what they did was took Neanderthal DNA and mixed it with their own to create humans. This is why we can not find a link between monkeys and humans.

    There are many documentaries out there that talk about Sumeria.  Sumeria was the first civilization and they have a much larger portion of the bible.  They speak of beings that came down from heaven and created them. 

    I do believe aliens are among us but stay hidden, as they don't want to be known.  I don't think they are our friends, I believe they are our masters.

    I could be wrong, but our universe is so large how could it not be possible that aliens are out there at the very least.

    Another question is, how do we know that what we call "life" is actually happening or is just imaginary. Maybe we are all living the same dream.

    Great Question.

    Any attempt to address this question on my part comes to asking if the two premises are mutually exclusive.  Then I ask myself, what defines one as an alien?   These questions also beg the postulate of whether the evidence that the public believes it has points to what the public thinks it does.  Then one has to beg the question, to what purpose do those so superior to ourselves come here when their existence suggests that there are probably more exciting places to hang out in the universe. Taking the question the other way, one has to question the meaning of alone.  The problem I have here is that people seem to define this question along physically provable lines.  If you can believe in aliens on what scant first or second hand accounts as have been given on the subject, why can't angelic visitations be as equally believable and likely.  How these fit in the same world begs other questions but also seems to suggest that our vision of where this planet exists and what concurrently exits around it makes our species definitely not alone.

    Yes. I believe there are other kinds of species other than human beings. It may not look like humans. Just like I believe in spirits that can be in the form of Qi energy floating in the air where we cannot see.

    It is like I believe in God though I may not witness with my eyes. Our planet has evolved from the dinosaur's age till the present. There can be many forms in earth as well as in other's planets which we may not be able to explore at the moment.

    I do beleive in Aliens.

    There's a possibility that somewhere in this universe life can exist in some form or the other. Probably they are advanced than us, probably not. Probably they know much about us.

    There are lot of things in this world and universe that's beyond the comprehension of "MAN".So, I consider that there is a possibility of aliens.

    I have seen UFO's several times in my life. Back in 1999 I and a friend saw a underwater UFO just off Folly Beach which is an island just south of Charleston South Carolina.

    We watched the craft move around under the water and then it came up out of the water and we heard the water running off of it. It was much like the craft there in the photo.

    It came up out of the water and then it flew away out to sea towards the east. When it came back later that night there were now two crafts and they went back down under the water.

    There is no way this could have possibly been a millitary craft. It was one of the most unique and unusual things that I ever saw.
