I'm just curious. Whats everyone's take on aliens?
Are they responsible for the ancient world?
Are they the gods of our legends and the faeries of our folklore?
Are they real?
What do you think?
I'm sure there is life on other planets, especially when you take into account how vast our universe is. Of course when scientists think of life on other planets they typically are thinking of microscopic bacteria or something. When the average person thinks of alien life they think of walking, talking intelligent life forms
Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die
Our own galaxy is vast and full of other worlds, and there are many other galaxies in the universe. Out of the thousands, possibly millions of other planets that inhabit our own galaxy, I think it would be foolish to assume we're the only forms of what we deem 'intelligent life'.
In saying that, I leave you with this
I talked to an alien about this once. He said something in a language I couldn't understand, so I just let him go back to cutting my neighbors lawn.
i have heard it said that humanity is a defacto race on many other planets but hey, how should i know. Its a nice thought though.
Are there aliens? Considering the size of the universe, almost definitely. It's very rough, but Drake's equation sums this sort of thing up nicely:
Have they visited us? Doubtful, but not impossible. They would be light-years away after all. Then again, as Arthur C. Clark once said, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic", so there's no telling what a more advanced civilization could do.
