My bet.. NOT A CHANCE .. no life on Titan.
I think by far the better chance of finding life in this solar system is on Europa. If we find any life there I bet it would be like what we have living near the thermal vents here on earth something like tubeworms and shrimp,fish, ect...
It doesn't matter I am not sure where you are coming from on this. The telescopes they are developing will be able to detect life, it doesn't matter if that particular planet is there still in real time. The telescope would still answer the question. It would just answer it as "we detected life existed there 100 light years ago.
Well, looking beyond the fact that Hugyens isn't designed to look for life....

Given NASAs track record, the probe would get trapped in jupiters gravitational pull and get sucked in

I highly doubt we will find inteligent life in the solar system that naturaly evolved here.
Life can also be silicon based.
The pope is the leader of catholicism which is the religion christianity comes from.
