With proof of our hundred billion+ galaxy Universe, how can anyone deny the existence of aliens being an extremely high possibility, almost an undeniable truth when we look at the scientific facts? All signs say that somewhere, out there, they exist. But then people can turn around and believe in an invisible sky god with no proof whatsoever? Devoting their lives to it? How is THIS the majority!?!

The thought that this unimaginably huge Universe was created just for us humans offends me a great deal, the fact that anyone could think that, blows my mind.

I am infinitely fascinated by our Universe, I always think about the possibilities, the other beings out there because for me this is already a fact, I see no way that we could be the only ones, and it's just amazing!

Any thoughts on this? How do you feel about other life somewhere out there in our Universe?

"However, I don't think this generation will find life in another galaxy that is many generations to come,"

I doubt we would have to look outside our own galaxy, even some of the closest stars could be abundant with life, but since stars are so bright it's damn near impossible (at this point in time) to see the planets that revolve around them. I do agree though, if we do find life it won't be in my lifetime, I'm fairly certain of that.

Was he serious? lol, that's very, uhm, eccentric of him! lol!

Ecce- I know its spelled wrong, I didn't make the picture but I still found it amusing lol :p

Digger- "which tells me that there must be millions of life sustaining "Earths" out there very similar to our Earth with Life very similar to ours, some with people, very similar to us,"

I agree, thats the way I see it as well. But I would even dare to say billions of Earths are out there, maybe more, seeing that in our galaxy alone it is estimated up to 50% of suns have a Earth like planet. Thanks for commenting everyone :)

Whether you believe in the Creation Theory or in the Big Bang Theory, it seems to have all began in one place, therefore the contents of the Universe consists of the same basic elements, with the abilities to create the same complex elements that exist here in our galaxy, and that those basic elements nesessary to create life here, also exist throughout the Universe, since there's life in abundance on earth then common sense tells me that any invironment that supports life here on earth, can also exist on other planets, therefore, I believe the majority of life throughout the Universe, is, has been, or will evolve to be, represented here on Earth, which tells me that there must be millions of life sustaining "Earths" out there very similar to our Earth with Life very similar to ours, some with people, very similar to us, in either from our past, present, or FUTURE, but the distances between us are so vast that we will never meet, or will we?

Looking at the sheer vastness of unimaginable proportions as to the numbers of star systems and galaxies, I find it hard to believe we are alone. I am as certain of this as much as I'm certain a theistic God doesn't exist.

1) We know life exists in the universe.
2) We know the stuff we are made of is spread all throughout the universe.
3) Given the trillions of trillions of potential solar systems in the universe, I find it likely that there are a vast number of oasis's containing life spread throughout the universe.

I feel the same, I could die a happy woman if I was alive to see first contact, but I don't believe that will happen, unfortunately.
