I believe within the next 20 years we will find bacterial life on Mars and perhaps one of Jupiter or Saturn's moons. If it shares similarities to bacterial life here that will shake things up just as much if not more than if we had run into living breathing, walking beings. It will make us confront if we started here and somehow an asteroid crashed on mars with earthly bacteria or the other way around. Either will shake the foundations of science and religion if that is a discovery.

When it comes to alien visitors I don't know why everyone says they will be a million years more advanced. If you went back 100 years there would be no advanced "anything" on this planet. So in only 200 years from now think where we will be. We probably will have defeated aging and disease from genetic engineering and a decent chance of learning how to travel faster than light (which according to Einstein himself does not violate physics or his models). So let's say we do that. What would we do first? Probably visit the planets we are finding with the planet finder telescopes whose spectrum size and distance from the sun is similar to ours and possible if we can detect methane in it's atmosphere. Then we would send unmanned probes most likely to observe first from orbit, then possibly landers. That's probably how we might even finally run into advanced or superadvanced aliens. If they are advanced enough they might shoot down our probe and it might piss them off badly that we just showed up orbiting their planet. Even in 2 or 3 hundred years finally seeing other worlds would interest us for several obvious reasons and if we found full blown talking aliens then even more so! However, after say 1000 years I hate to think how advanced we will be if we make it that far much less a million. If we do then undoubtedly we will have to have either terraformed someplace like Mars or if we do have faster than light travel then colonize some distant planets, which is just plain wild to think about but it would have to happen simply due to population growth and the ability to just make it happen. But without a doubt I feel that eventually we will get tired of finding another "new planet" because if we find enough and explore and even run into a bunch of advanced civilizations we will start becoming bored and stop the endless exploring although the exploring will last a long time. I also don't think that just cause aliens become super advance that leads them to being peaceful and malevolent. I think they may have no concept of right or wrong. If they can accomplish "anything" by being superadvanced then killing us might be equal to us squashing a spiders nest literally. When I come across a spider with the eggs and the web in my house I grab the paper towels and just scoop it all up and crush it then toss it away. That's why I kind of agree with Steven Hawking that we may not want to blast the loud speakers that we are here! Some civilizations may be spreading their way through the universe and find out the third 4th and 8th planet from the sun in our solar system has a lot of raw materials they need on their travels of spreading out. If they come and destroyed Neptune and Mars alone that would be very bad very fast as far as the gravitational ebb and flow of our solar system by itself even if they didn't come and strip mine the planet. If they decided to extract whatever they needed from us there probably is nothing we could do about it. A civilization a million years more advanced than us probably wouldn't even notice us as anything more than what we recognize a bug to be.

I have two ideas on who is visiting us based on this. First, I feel that the "visitors" are only a few hundred years ahead of us. That would be the only reason to send out explorations in manned and unmanned probes or ships. A civilization a million years ahead of us I don't think would still be interested at all in finding another new planet or new bacteria and especially not a new civilization as primitive as us. I don't think a civilization a million years ahead of us would do anything except possibly live in their own virtual reality. As I said before we would be ants to them and do we really notice an ant? I also think we will find simple "life" in the universe to be fairly commonplace at least in bacterial or animal form. That it will give rise to intelligence? Probably not so much so. This just makes more sense to me in the sense that there are no animals that we can tell yet on any other planet in the solar system except us so I doubt if other systems have more than a couple in the "goldilocks" zone either. Plus don't forget that on this planet dinosaurs were the dominant species till a giant asteroid or two wandered into earth's orbit. Unless that had happened we wouldn't be here and it might be dinosaurs still plodding around doing nothing more than eating each other. After all, they existed pretty much unchanged for 65 million years. Also we have been sending out strong signals from our planet in general for about 50 years. We should then direct the search for life in areas about 50 light years or so from earth as that might be why we are getting visits from aliens within that distance from earth. It makes sense for aliens to look somewhat like us and I know that is a bold statement to make but it does take the ability to grasp, to write, to talk even as essential for doing anything remotely like building something and advancing. In all species here on earth you see symmetry is what matters. Two of everything seems to be the most common rule among the higher life forms. That's why I don't think you will see many advanced aliens with 5 arms or 1 leg and they get around by hopping or something.

So as far as why I don't think "highly" advanced civilizations would ever visit us are for the reason I previously stated and also this stupid analogy. I would rather play a more true to life video game on Playstation 4 than pull out the old blocky Atari 2600. And even then eventually I grew up and don't want to play at all anymore cause I played a ton of them and moved on to something else more "refined" or some people might even say intelligent than playing games on a screen.

Maybe they're not so much "visiting" us as they are "keeping tabs on" us. Maybe they've been doing so for our entire history. Maybe they have something to do with our origins and development.

Hard to say really what an alien intelligence would do. Their motivations might be totally incomprehensible to us.

I too share the opinion that we have been and are being visited and watched. Its very possible in my opinion some of their technology would include being cloaked. Can't rule it in or out.

Not saying they aren't watching us, I believe some are. I just don't think they would care that much about our level of intelligence and also the universe is BIG!! I don't think we are a legitimate threat of taking over the universe like the Imperial Republic from Star Wars. I doubt if that is their fear.

They are guardians of this rock and not us. It is a life form in its own right. A full eco life form sustain other life forms. Not as common as you think .

If you went back 100 years there would be no advanced "anything" on this planet. So in only 200 years from now think where we will be.

If they don't clean up all the radioactive waste by then we'll be decaying alongside it.

i gave the first star and flag for this thread, because you put alot of text into it.

I believe that something is up there..... i dont know what but ive seen it with my own eyes.
The UFO's fly by in the sky and look like shooting stars making breakneck maneuvers at intense speeds.

Very nice post, I tend to agree with it but I believe there is more to the story:

There may be several groups of Aliens that fight over this "sector"
There may be a purpose (hidden) for the group that controls this planet
There may be an effort by secret military projects to acquire alien technology
.......

I don't really see confirmation of Panspermia shaking the foundations of science any. Maybe some scientists themselves who have fallen into the delusion of the greater Anthropic principle, but not science in general. Religion though, you are absolutely correct on that point. But maybe not enough shaking to shatter it. Nowhere in the Bible, for instance does it say that God created life ONLY on this world. And Islam lays claim to Mars, sort of.

I think that what we have here is more like a guy checking his petri dish every once in a while, or maybe like us going to the zoo. I guess it depends on scale...

ET's have been in our solar system before humans put a foot on planet earth. has far i know and from my own experience with "Et's". Actually all life on Earth has been put in place for us to enjoy and to feed us. You may ask why? and i will answer why not?.

Playing in a virtual wolrd is fun, playing on the real world is funnier. =) I will only say for an example would you prefer see vtirually the statue of liberty in a screen or hologram or have a real trip to NY know the people go to good restaurants have fun and watch it live with your own eyes and sensses, what would give you the best experience for yourself and your "soul" and your mind.???? The earth is about that plain as simply, good experiences bad experiences, Et's take care of the rest.

In my opinion this is the fun part when it comes to aliens. We can speculate all day long about what they might be like. I sit on the middle of the fence with a lot of these subjects but I also do believe that existence is way to big for this rock to be the only one infested with parasites. And if we ever do find life on another planet it might not be as advanced as we are when we get there! The problem with finding advanced life forms, in my opinion, is that technology while it makes life easier is not necessary. If we were to all disappear from this planet the most advanced creatures would only recently start using stone tools and life would go on just fine for everything else without our "intelligence". I just hope that we are smart enough to discern from native animals and sentient beings living a simple life. Not that I am sure there would be a difference.

I was going to say the exact same thing.
I don't think we'll make it 200 years.
And I don't mean "the maya calendar" or "Nibiru" etc. We will self destruct before the doom porn gets us.

They are the real land lords waiting for enough improvements to be made they can sell us or put us to work. We haven't gotten advanced enough to enslave. With tongue firmly in cheek, perhaps.

I believe aliens are here on earth. Don't forget we have a secret government above our own government that is so secret that Congress and the President are not allowed to know what they are up to.

I call it the Black Budget Projects. For 65 years this secret government have made agreements with ET's for technologies.

Don't forget there are millions of people that have been abducted around the world, some with implants that doctors have removed and sent to laboratories and still don't understand what these objects are.

Then we have eyewitness accounts from all over the world, that have photograph these strange flying ships.

We have found strange artifacts from around the world that we assume ET's left behind centuries ago.

We have whistle blowers coming out the wood work talking about their involvement working with many different aliens in different Black Budgets Projects. You can Liston to hundreds of hours of live interviews from a website called: Project Camelot.

Why assume they are just "visiting? Theyve always been here, other are coming and going. We are just too infantile with the idea they are "visiting"...and when they "show themselves". C'mon!

Think about it. Millions of years advanced...we havent a clue what to look for...when they are probably just standing or floating right next to us.

Thats the smart bet. They arent coming. They are here....always have been.

Hi Saudi, welcome to ATS. Thanks for the reply. Yah, there is no cleaning that stuff up. Once its in the environment, its there to stay for a lonnng time. Further down the road we go, the more it spreads, the more it accumulates higher up the food chain you go.

I've seen one of their spheres. They're here and they're watching us. Remember the watchers from the bible?
