For example, we can say that they will go to war against us because humans by nature are violent and history proves it.

I think you need to be some kind of special person if you believe there isn't life in our own Galaxy, let alone the billions of galaxies in the universe.
Whether any organism has managed to perfect space travel and have decided to explore the universe is another question.
We are learning more and more about the vast amount of nothingness we are travelling around, yet we will never fully understand all of its secrets.

The building blocks for life "as we know it," correct? I am also fascinated how narrow-minded some extremely intelligent scientists can be. We are always looking for what makes life "as we know it." What about life as we do not know it? Isn't there a strong possibility that elsewhere in the universe there will be some form of being that exist based on completely different "building blocks." Don't we even have some creatures on this planet that baffle out understanding of "life" (sulfur breathing organisms, for example)?
Why does all "life" in the universe need water to survive?
Are we just looking for a replacement planet? Are we just looking for more humans?
One of my favorite things to think about is how it is technically possible that there is another planet out there with dinosaurs on it (or some variation). We are never out there looking for dinosaurs, and that disappoints me!
