    Only 10 votes? Maybe we are.

    No there is life out there but I think less than one percent of UFO's that are thought to be alien craft are really alien the rest of the craft are from earth. smile

    imho even if we aren't alone, our separation in space and time from other solar systems, even within the close neighborhood of our galaxy, renders us alone... and permanently so given Homo Sapiens inevitable extinction. --- little gray men, crop circles and bigfoot however may prove me wrong. ; )

    Flight was once only a dream...
    In less than 100 years from the first powered flight, Man got to the Moon.
    Who knows how far we will have gone 100 years, 1000 years from today?

    Until the development of internal combustion engines, it was not possible for a machine to generate enough power to lift itself into the air. Muscle power or steam engines would not do it.
    Until the development of jet propulsion and rockets, it was not possible to escape the Earth's gravity (propellers need to move air to generate thrust and there is no air in space).

    Who knows what technologies we will discover and develop in the future ant what these will enable us to do?
    Just because it is impossible with today's technology or unknown to current science it does not mean it is impossible.

    I guess it just comes down to your being a glass half full kinda Alien and me being a glass half empty zigzag.
    I've always loved the saying "Pigs might fly but they are very unlikely birds." --- a humorous reminder of mankind's futile hopes. We'll never make it to the moon again, ---if we ever did which is debatable--- let alone Mars and beyond. Our desecration of the earth, the declining American Empire --- thank god---, our insatiable appetite for wars, proliferation of WMD's, etc... and our eventual civilizational collapse like all those which preceded ours, preclude anything other than wishful thinking regarding homo sapiens future.

    On the other hand there is Oscar Wilde's beautiful quote, "We are all of us in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars." It's nice to hear such hopeful and inspired views such as yours AlienXXX, and I love the exchange of perspectives. Perhaps it's time for me to download some of my fav Star Trek TV episodes to set me straight --- Shatner and Nimoy episodes of course. ; )

    The question is not wether we are alone, just how alone are we?, and where in the universe is there any life that is close to say, animal or botanical life. For me that we be enough.

    Sometimes I like to question wether there could be an intelligent life or lifeforce around us that's not dependant on a carbon based frame, but with that notion I further wonder how it would interact with our lives wether it want's to remain undetected or wether or relationships would be mutually beneficial etc.

    This could also be present on other planets at the furthest reaches of the universe. So Hmmm lots of theory you could say.

    The subject of course is enough to keep us all going late into the night over a couple of bottles of wine and a Pink Floyd LP but I realised a few years ago, that really we have to be more careful in how we look at what we want from a relationships with anything other than intelligent life, more or less with non intelligent life first and how we protect it from being destroyed and over used.

    'Avatar' was a good example, where a race + different species, was being used for the benefit of humans only. Pretty hideous..!

    Let you imagination out, put down what you think you can visulise a species being like and consider wether it's likely or not.

    And for myself. I think a nearest we can get to alien life at the moment and the most interesting place, is planet earth. Just remember, AI, Genetic Engineering & Nano Technology are massive areas of development.

    Could we put up with the total possible realitys that they may have to offer? :roll:

    The matter of the existence of life outside Earth (intelligent or not) is far from being a merely rhetorical or something to discuss during a long night over a couple of bottles of wine.
    Besides the social and religious aspects arising from the discover of intelligent (or even non-intelligent) life elsewhere, there are a few very practical ones. For example:
    A microbe (or more likely, a virus) arriving to Earth on a meteorite could wipe out the human species, or even all life on Earth. Unlikely, but not impossible.
    The discovery of life elsewhere could give us resources or teach us how to live on other planets. Remember that Earth and the Sun will not last forever. The longterm survival of the human race will require space colonization.

    But Proxima4 poits are all valid and well taken. We are not ready to handle the discovery of life outside Earth. At least not until we have learned to respect all life in our home planet.
