Does intelligent life exist elsewhere in our universe?

  • Humans are not a unique species

    The whole universe is made up of carbon atoms, after the 'big band' we are not unique and indeed no one knows the origins of DNA, there is no scientific map to quantify the theory of evolution. I believe we were created, we are star children, and yes there is a strong possibility of intelligent life out there. Lets hope there friendly!

  • It does exist

  • No doubt about it

    Logic would suggest that the commonality that exists on earth of infinite varieties of all species sharing cohabitation on our sphere in uncountable numbers no doubt has mirrored phenomena throughout all universe's. It is likely that species on other orbs or atomspheres will evolve to be different in form and content to Earthlings reflecting their unique circumstances of creation and planetary evolution in their star systems.

  • It's all maths

    According to scientists there are at least 100 billion observable galaxies in this universe.Now it will be impossible for life to not exist anywhere else except earth. Given 100 billion galaxies with average of 9 planets in each galaxy, the probability that life exists some where else becomes extremely high.

  • Why Couldn't There

    Our galaxy has life and we live in a huge universe. There has to be life somewhere. Even if there's not there was life on Mars at one time. You also need to think of the odds if 1 in 6 stars have earths size and shape there has to life somewhere else.

  • Odds that point to yes are large

    Our universe is ENORMOUS; it contains BILLIONS of galaxies. Suppose each galaxy contains billions of stars and if a fraction of those stars are similar to the sun, and if a fraction of those sun-like stars have earth-like planets, hundreds if not THOUSANDS of intelligent civilisations exist in our galaxy ALONE, not mentioning all the OTHER galaxies. Odds are huge!

  • Why not? :)

    There is not prof that we are the only planet which has life on it. There are loads of planets in the universe for us to search. And even if we search all the planets we can and find no life, we still have 100's of millions left. So who know's the universe might be full of life that we just can't find.

  • For sure theres life

    THink of the chances billions of planets, and only one place that is habital, and people live on? There must be life somewhere else. There is even some evidence of past life on mars. There must be life somewhere in our universe. Even if the galaxy is far far away.

  • The odds are simply massive there would be life on other planets in this or other galaxies...

    ...The evolutionary processes that created life on this one 'earth' - which is located in the 'Goldilocks' zone (not too far or too close to the sun so that liquid water can exist) - is not unique to our solar system. It has already been found that other stars (suns) have planets in this 'liquid water' zone. The elements and basic laws of physics have also been proven to be the same throughout the known Universe, so, considering how many stars that exist, it is quite arrogant for humans to think they would be the only life form - intelligent or not - that might have evolved. Although the distances between the stars and galaxies would prohibit contact. IMHO.

  • Odds Are In Favor

    There are hundreds of billions of stars in our galaxy, and hundreds of billions of galaxies in our universe. The odds of even one of those stars (other than our own) harboring a planet with intelligent life is pretty good considering life rose out of the primordial soup on Earth. If it can happen in one little corner of the Milky Way, chances are very good there are intelligent beings somewhere else wondering the same things we are.

  • Nope..It does not

    There is no life in universe except here on earth. Reason being, it does not make sense since this universe was created by stephan hawkings and he lives here. If there was a life anywhere else he would have visited there as well. Such a simple concept. If you have two homes, sooner or later you will visit the other one too no matter how bad it is.

  • God or chance?

    There are only two possibilities for the origins of intelligent life in the universe. God - the idea favoured by fundamentalist religions, or chance - the spinning chaotic fate of the universe that can be explained and accurately conjectured about through science. If an infinite number of monkeys sat at a type writer for an infinite amount of time then 'by chance' one would produce Shakesperian work. Chance needs time and space to evolve and develop. That's why the universe is so big; big enough and old enough for our unique species ( the monkey's Shakesperian play) to evolve. We are alone in the universe both physically and in spirit. Accept it and get over it.

  • Imaginatory life

    As pointed out here anonymously, there is no hard evidence. Nevertheless we have no reason to discount the possibility of "intelligent" life elsewhere than on this planet because a plausible heuristic case to be made for the proposition that such societies may never be contacted by our species.

    Which, of course, is one way of accounting for the Fermi paradox.

    In terms of a kind of "cosmic censorship" by the non-biological cognitive entity which is on track to supersede humankind.

    The very broad evolutionary model which supports this contention is outlined (very informally) in "The Goldilocks Effect: What Has Serendipity Ever Done For Us?" , a free download in e-book formats from my "Unusual Perspectives" website

  • Without hard evidence, no

    With so much speculation, so much fiction and claims of abductions, the human race is clearly fascinated by the prospect of alien intelligent life. However, is there truly any actual hard evidence? No - and without it, we can only dream and hope. It is not unlike believing in Big Foot or the Loch Ness Monster. Without proof, we have no choice but to assume they do not exist.
