From what i remember from JL he didn't say INTELLIGENT life. I believe he was right about intelligent life on mars and venus.

There is a clear distinciton between the fantastical and often farcical claims of JL and what the existing body of knowledge is telling us on the subject of possibility of life in the Solar system.
There are a couple of places in the Solar system where life is theoretically possible but not too likely. That much is true. But to tell us that there is lush vegetation, rivers and lakes on Venus is a different story altogether.
I suggest you rename the thread.

If we leave out Nasa, how do we REALLY know what the surface conditions are like?

It comes down to a choice, will you believe NASA/ESA, or try and get your information elsewhere? I don't trust them, I have seen more than enough examples that they are hiding something, therefore, anyone has more credibility than them, that is MO.
I believe Venus to be inhabited, with intelligent life (that website was interesting, never seen it before.), far mor eintelligent than us. I also believe that Uranus and Neptune are also inhabited
A lot of these claims come from the likes of John Lear of not directly himslef, so this is really a circular argument. John says NASA lied, therefore you don't believe NASA because NASA lied and Joh didn't. Duh.
It sounds so much like 'Credo' or some other declaration of one's reliious faith, it's not even too funny. If you chose to be irrational, well, feel free.
I believe there is an inteligent lifeform living in your toilet tank, and it tuns transparent every time you lift the lid to check. It send a subspace message to the Universe every time you flush. And by golly, you can't prove me wrong.
That, in essense, is the approach of Learites.
