Life on other planets???


Okay, I know we are all huge sci-fi fans here and we love to watch movies and TV shows about this, but do you honestly believe there are other people/creatures on other planets out there in the universe? And why? If you do, do you think we will ever meet them?

(Try to be totally honest; do not write about what you hope is true or not true, but rather what you honestly believe.)

I will post my opinion at the end, after everyone else has gone, so you will have to be in suspense... emoticon

Re: Life on other planets???


Okay, let's see...

Do I think there COULD BE life out there? Absolutely. Do I think there MAY NOT BE life out there? Yes. Will it be like us? I really don't know. They could be human-like, and they could be nothing at all like us. They could be like the Asgard, descended from something like us, but not like us now at all. Or they could be not even carbon-based. Although, honestly, I think that if there is other life out there, it would be exactly or very very similar to us.

I really don't know. My mind tells me that it is only logical that there HAS to be other life out there, intelligent or otherwise, but my heart tells me that either there isn't, or we will never find out.

Re: Life on other planets???


That's how I feel about it, Daniel. My mind says that out of the billions of star systems and galaxies out there, there must be at least one other planet with life on it. I watched that special on SciFi the other day about the Roswell incident. It was pretty convincing. If it was a hoax, someone went to ALOT of trouble. If the Roswell "aliens" are from a distant planet, we could very well see their race again soon.
I frequently read the Bible and it doesn't say anything about life on other planets. That doesn't mean they aren't out there. It just means that if they are out there, God didn't think it was neccessary to tell us about them.
The only way we will find out is if they come visit us. We can't even travel to the nearest star system using current technology. I believe Einsteins theory of relativity is true so it will have to be some sort of space warp that gets us there if we ever go ourselves.

Well, I would have to say that yes I do believe there is life on other panets. My most compelling reason is also the most unscientific reason too. According to the law of averages, out of the billions of planets out there (Actually,like a Google I think) there has to be life on some of them dontcha think?

Great question, Sam! And I think I know what you're going to say your opinion on the subject is.... emoticon

I agree with you mechaDaedalus. I also frequently read the Bible, and I totally believe in God. I agree that God may have created other life forms out there somewhere and not told us about it, because, of course, God can do whatever He wants to. And perhaps He has a specific reason for keeping it from us. But it is also just as entirely possible that we are the only ones that God created, we are unique, and that the universe was created because God loves to create, and for us to enjoy his creations. I agree also with Daniel, that we will probably never know in our lifetimes if there is other life out there or not. When I die, though, it is one of the first things I will be asking God, unless it is all revealed to me when I die.

As far as the Roswell incident and others, they can be explained in one of four ways. 1) The government is testing some kind of top secret aircraft, in which case they would be keeping it from the public for national security purposes. 2)There was something extraterrestrial, but they thought that people would totally freak out if they knew, and therefore kept it a secret. 3) The crash was an accident and the government was told by the extraterrestrials to keep it a secret for our own good. Or, least likely, considering the frequency of reports 4)It is all just a bunch of concocted stories.

I do believe that their is life on other planets. But I'm not sure if they would be like us. With all the galaxies out there something has got to be out there.

Re: Life on other planets???


I completely believe in other life existing in the universe, especially intelligent life. It seems that with so much we haven't discovered in the galaxy, not to mention the universe, that it is very likely that beings could exist out there and we would have no way of knowing. At our current rate of advancing technology, it would probably be awhile before we had the means to even fully explore our own solar system.

As far as it ever being possible to get to far away planets, I think that it is very possible, but we just haven't figured it out. I think that there are aspects to our own science that have gotten left out at one point or another which might be the key to being able to travel far enough to find life.

The other thing is that just because there's life doesn't mean it has to be physical. They could just be forms of energy or something like that. And as far as the God thing is concerned, I think that if he loved creating so much he would have created other places too. Why stop with one?

I totally believe there could be life on other planets. I mean, the galaxy -- heck, the UNIVERSE, is a very big place, if there wasn't other intelligent life out there, it'd be a very big "waste of space" emoticon
