Yes, I think that we are quite narcissistic believing that we humans here on earth is all that there is. There is a lot of unexplained things!

I'm fairly religious - but I don't see the existence of aliens as supporting or disproving those beliefs.

As for whether they exist or not - I'm not a fan of the billions-and-billions theory that says there must be due to some sort of statistical happening. To me that theory is akin to a religion - its based on faith in numbers not science.

I just keep an open mind - but I'm not in favor of wasting tax payer money on the search.

Yes, I agree with travelnurse's opinion.

Do I believe little green men are abducting people from Nebraska and sticking probes up their asses? No. Do I think it's highly likely that we are not alone in the universe? Yes.

I do believe there is life out, however I don't believe in alien abductions. I think they'd have better things to do then prove us.

Considering how many different stars and galaxies there are, I'd say it's almost certain that life does exist in some form somewhere out there in space.

Then if you factor in theories that other universes (perhaps even alternate realities mirroring our own) exist....I don't even want to fathom the odds in favor of "aliens" existing.

I have pretty good self-esteem and can believe in myself.

The universe is too big for there not to be others.

Not sure, I can't imagine the universe being so big, and we're the only ones in it. Probably.

Well put. There are, as Carl Sagan says, billions and billions of stars in the universe. To think Sol is the only one with an inhabited planet orbiting it is, at the least, short-sighted.

Billions and billions is a meaningless measure. We know with great certainty that life needs very specific conditions - and no one knows how intelligent life emerged from the flora and fauna on this planet.

Thousands of planets have been found - and none of them have even a remote chance of supporting life as we know it.

I'm holding out for something real - not a neo-religious statistical theory. Scientist should be more honest about what they 'know' and what they 'think'.

Much of what I was taught in science class has since been proven false. Scientific orthodoxy is not fact - it's theory.

I don't know. In the past I didn't believe it at all, but I also didn't believe in the paranormal until experiencing something for myself that caused me to start, so I guess I just see it as a possibility.

Absolutely! There is no way that we humans are it. The universe is too vast and unending...

I always think of the final scene in Men in Black, when Tommy Lee Jones reveals to Will Smith that they are just small beings in someone else's game.

I certainly believe there's life out there among the stars, possibly even intelligent life. However, while it's certainly possible that they've visited us or contacted someone here (and I love hearing stories about it, even if they're completely wacky), the odds of that actually being the case are pretty darn small. We probably won't meet any of that alien life for many generations yet.

Yep, pretty likely given how big the universe is. That said, the odds of us ever meeting alien life is minimal, for the same size reasons

I agree with this. The amount of energy that would be needed to travel space makes it seems unlikely to me that we would ever have any extra-terrestrial contact.

yes. Look at all the different spieces of animals. and different races of us humans. There has to be other life somewhere even if its not like us human maybe like animals.
