To the above posters,
I agree with you both. I don't think anyone can look up into the night sky and honestly think we are the only intelligent life, let alone the only
life, period! That's just very conceited. That's like a man standing on a hill overlooking the ocean, and just because he couldnt see into it or
over the horizon, thinking he was th ONLY life on the planet. Alien life DEFINETLY exsists (the odds are simply incredibly in favor of that). The
question is, does it (or has it) visited earth?
It's certainly not impossible. I mentioned in the 'Where do Aliens come from" the Alpha Centauri system. It is roughly the same distance from us as
venus is from earth, and it is very similar to our sun, leading some astronomers to think it may have planets very much like earth (capable of
supporting life). Think about that.
We've sent about 3 or 4 different probes to orbit Venus over the years, and that's with OUR crappy technology. Imagine then that there is an alien
civilization on one of the worlds of Alpha Centauri, and they are just slightly more advanced then we are. They could very easily reach our planet in
a very short time indeed.
I don't want to beat this into the ground, but I think this is very exciting! A solar system much like our own no farther from us than venus is!It
takes away the idea that aliens would have to travel lightyears to get here (the current theory).
Makes you wonder....
