I don't think that we can prove the existence of aliens through the text we're typing here on Debate.org. I do, however, believe that we can give an estimation of fairly plausible to the idea that aliens exist.

The Milky Way (our own galaxy) contains between 200 and 400 BILLION stars and at least 100 BILLION (100,000,000,000
) planets (estimated). If that sounds huge (because it is) - it's actually puny compared to M87, an elliptical galaxy 980,000 light years in diameter. The Milky Way is only 100,000 light years in diameter. Let's not even get into Hercules A, which is 1.5 million light years across.

So, we've discussed three galaxies so far, each with billions and billions of suns and planets. According to the best estimates of astronomers there are at least one hundred billion (100,000,000,000
) galaxies in the observable universe. They've counted the galaxies in a particular region, and multiplied this up to estimate the number for the whole universe. (http://www.physics.org...)

Now, we can take a small sample size of this 100 BILLION galaxy estimation, say, 10 billion galaxies (or 10% of the estimation). The number of stars in a galaxy varies, but assuming an average of 100 billion (a low-ball estimate) stars per galaxy means that there are about 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (that's 1 billion trillion) stars in the observable universe!

In conclusion, 100 to 400 billion stars in the Milky Way and more than 100 billion galaxies in the Universe " maybe as many as 500 billion. If you multiply stars by galaxies, at the low end, you get 10 billion billion stars, or 10 sextillion stars in the Universe " a 1 followed by 22 zeros. At the high end, it"s 200 sextillion.

There are more stars out there than grains of sand on this earth. To say that there are no aliens because 'duh' is like saying that the Texas Rangers have no chance of winning the World Series. Plausible, but not yet proven.

"an illegal alien"

Just watch any of Donald Trump's public talks and you'll see that aliens are very real, at least in the pineapple world.

The possibility that aliens are real are really high and very probable. The universe is such a vast place you must have to think that there is something else out there lol. There have also been many occurrences where aliens are the most probable culprit I would say aliens are real but that's just me. Keep in mind there's a really high chance there is.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct to Con due to Pro's forfeiture. Sources to Pro for him being the only one who not only used them, but had actually intergrated them into his own argument. Arguments go to Pro since he actually made arguments while Con just "stone-Stepped" his arguments.
