i believe in some other life form (bacteria, plants, micro organisms, etc), but it's stupid to think that aliens look like human beings or that human beings live in other galaxies...

So what if they have been? What's on that space craft? dirt? what kind of living organism can live in space for millions of years?

If you believe in life, such as bacteria, plants, etc, then there has to be some sort of human life out there also. Human beings on earth were basically derived from bacteria and micro organisms. Earth is fairly young in age at about ~5 billion years. There are stars in the universe with age of 10 billion years. With a trillion stars out there, the chances of being some sort of human being alive in other universe with million years if not billion years of advancement than earth isn't unlikely.

Everything about the creation of the universe, the big bang, how life started...etc..are all theories, none of which can be proven, so everyone is entitled to their own opinion...

The universe and its contents is beyond human comprehension, thinking about it just make you go retarded, like Stephen Hawkings

the greys, they live off microwave radiation and have an average life span of 20 million earth years.

Earth is in space and has had life for millions of years.

Maybe they have a really big spacecraft or a whole armada of them....

Hmmmm, I wonder if their "big spacecraft" would seem big or small to us?

Maybe planets are just like islands in the ocean to them and they just stop at different planets and get what they need as they sail the oceans of space.

All I know is that we as humans have no clue.

It doesnt. Its an illusion. The skull in the picture you posted is more than halfway rotated around, making the mandible look further forward. IMO

*lol* at those close-minded enough to think there *are* no aliens, for those folks are the true sheep. As big as this universe is, how egotistical one must be to think that we are the *only* life forms that inhabit it *smh*.

Honestly, there's no telling. We're assuming about life based on characteristics of life as *we* know it. Species on earth evolved to adapt to the environment, what's to say whatever else is out there hasn't done the same?

Not even the scientists and physicists at NASA can say what you said with 100% certainty, so what makes you so sure? Already there have been multiple planets considered to be habitable by NASA, and this is only in one region. There are trillions of other unknown regions out there.

Of course, evolution and the derivation of the human-form is still a just a theory with many flaws in it, but to come out of nowhere and say that something is "stupid" based on your own opinion without any substantial evidence or proof makes your statement worthless.

You are very correct. But thousands of our best scientists will be working with said found shoe because many will have the "need to know".

I never understood why we have to find an earth-like planet to find life. If one believes in evolution then who is to say that an organism on a planet hostile to human life couldn't adapt to the environment and thrive? There is life in the depths of the ocean that would die if it came up to shallower water where there is less pressure and there are organisms that thrive living next to volcanic vents deep in the ocean where the ambient temperatures would kill a human. To say that we have to find a planet with similar atmosphere, air, gravity, water and whatever else in order to find life is ridiculous. To insult someone over the fact they slightly comprehend the vastness of space and that the likelihood of intelligent life exists and that it might resemble human form somewhere else shows your ignorance. Who knows, maybe they dont resemble human form, maybe we resemble them.

This.

When we look at the universe as a whole, we observe it through human eyes and with human beliefs/theories, be it from a scientific or religious point of view. Most of us that is. Let's be honest for a moment, both groups can be quite rigid and dogmatic if their accepted way of the world is challenged by a differing point of view.

If E.T. showed up tomorrow, you can bet your bottom dollar that both the scientific and religious communities would be shaken to the very core.

I dunno. As a Christian, my faith wouldn't be shaken. If you want to get technical, the Bible doesn't address life on other planets, so there's nothing that says aliens don't exist. Just sayin'....

I totally understand what you're saying about organisms being able to adapt, but from our understanding, the minimum requirement for sustaining life is water. Since water evaporates and freezes at certain temperatures, the atmosphere must therefore be between the freezing and boiling point of water so that it can stay in liquid form.

Perhaps one day, we will find a water-like substance in another planet composed of elements unknown to mankind which can also support life.

Oh, I agree with you on that point, but you have to admit not everyone would be some open-minded, no?

Actually, I think most Christians don't reject the idea of extra terrestrial life. I once asked my pastor if he believed in life outside Earth, and his response was that the Bible describes God as a "creator", and therefore, not unusual if he also created life elsewhere. Most Christians aren't as close-minded as you think.
