    When you realize there are Billions of stars in our Galaxy
    and Billions of Galaxies, I would guess YES.

    Hard not to agree if you ask me.

    Seeing as there is barely any intelligent life on our planet already, I'd say it would be pretty unlikely there would be elsewhere... but I still want to believe. :biggrin1:

    I once heard Howard Stern say he does not think that intelligent life exists outside this planet, but I think it is because he is so into himself.

    I think is likely, but I don't think whether I believe in it or not results in it existing or not existing.:smile:

    What if it does? what if it does exist and it will disappear if kalipygian says it does not? It can happen, every intelligent life form could be swallowed by a black hole, thanks to YOU. :confused:

    I would say there is definetly Intelligent life out there. What I'm not so sure about is if there's intelligent life on Earth.

    And no I'm not refering to anyone here, I'm just making a general comment.

    In the words of Monty Python:

    ... pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
    'cause there's bugger-all down here on earth!

    I would have to agree with some of the previous posts, since there is precious little indication of any intelligent life on this planet as of late, the intelligence factor has to be somewhere out there.

    This has been discussed before, but.. Yes, I do believe there is intelligent life in places in the universe other than our own planet.

    I don't know and I really don't concern myself with this question either. I'm busy trying to find intelligent lifeforms on this planet... a hard task indeed.

    Do I think there is intelligent life outside our planet? Sometimes I'm not convinced there is intelligent life on our planet

    If they launched you into space and you landed on Mars and got out in your space suit to walk around, I'd still be guessing when saying yes.:biggrin1:

    I think that with as many stars in our galaxy, and as many galaxies in the universe, and especially considering the discovery of planets outside our solar system, there probably is.

    I don't think that extraterrestrials have landed on Earth, though, despite those reports from Roswell, etc. (I think that what people saw there was a classified military exercise, and that's why it's hush-hush) The other planets are just too far away. I suppose if the ETs had very long life spans, and modes of transportation that would last for thousands of years, they could get here. But is it really worth it?

    Of course, maybe if they (or we) found a way of making a warp drive like in Star Trek...

    (I personally would love to meet an extraterrestrial...well, unless it's like the title character of "Alien"! :eek: )

    It's illgocal to think of how many limitless galaxies their are in this universe and to think that earth holds the only intelligent beings.

    There are other multicellular beings in the universe, none that we can see, and will probably never see in ourlife time but to quote Samuel L.:

    Adsence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

    We can't see it? so what, its out there.

    No offence, 36DD, but it's funny, the number of people that think/say this. Which side do they claim to be on? The smart side or the dumb side?:wink:



    Who said Howard Stern was from this planet? :biggrin1:

    Well, I'm sure there is. Its simply ridiculous thinking we are the onlyones in this universe. I'm living in Panama, and some of you may laugh at me, but me and some friends had several ufo sightings here.
