Yes, there is 5th dimensional race living on Europa.
The ice makes the climate mild. (think snowcave)
Tolec says they are helping us out right now. ( Science Biospheres)
I am not sure if you are sarcastic or serious but... what would they be called? Europans? No, not Europeans

Here's a question that didn't appear in this thread, and I think it's something to consider:
What if the supposed life on these moons isn't carbon based? We assume that all intelligent life out there in the uncharted/unknown darkness of space is carbon based, and needs water to survive.
Why is this the only thread of thought regarding "visitors" from other areas of space?
Why couldn't another life form be based on a composition that we are unaware of?
We only think in the limited terms of knowledge that we possess. I'm sure there are other compounds and chemicals/minerals in space we are unaware of. Some of them would most likely be beyond our knowledge base, or capacity to fathom.
What if these off-world visitors don't have what we perceive to be a circulatory system?
If they are visiting, and hiding in our oceans, are they donning speedos and going swimming with the fishes, or maintaining a covert location with which to observe a race that from all outward appearances is wrought with violence? (If I was an alien, and came here, i darn sure wouldn't make my presence known to such a species hell-bent on wanton destruction, and ESPECIALLY if I monitored any Alien-type movies where we do something "nasty" to them.)
We are convinced we are not alone in the universe, that is for sure. Something that we can neither prove, NOR deny. (We are arrogant and egotistical, but not utterly stupid)
Life elsewhere doesn't HAVE to be carbon based. We just think it is. We have no proof to confirm OR deny this "theory", just like we have no definitive proof/lack of proof that there's the possibility that the first sentient and self-aware denizens of this planet weren't transplants (or refugees) from beyond our solar system. (now THERE'S a thought!)
Aliens on the moons. It isn't entirely impossible. What if that life is microbial? What if those creatures do not require oxygen to breathe, and can survive the airless void of space?
For someone to say there is life there with NO proof, and NOTHING to back the claim up is interesting to say the least, but please. There are other life-form possibilities out there...
We just don't know it.

I see no science there.
It, like Star Wars and Star Trek, would fall in to the fantasy category.
