Exactly.. If not
intelligent life, we should at least find microbes. Maybe under mars. Maybe in under Europa's frozen ocean, or in Venus' atmosphere. Exciting

I'm sure amoebas can be found on one moon or another. We haven't exactly combed the galaxy with a fine tooth implement.
Yes, it is the most amazing question perhaps man has, does life exist beyond our Beautiful Earth???
Also another nice site of some other (20) spectacular photos of Earth from Space: Take your time, no rush.
Amazing images of Earth
So, I really can't think of many people who wouldn't love to know the answer to that question above. However, as of right NOW, we have found
nothing, nothing at all that comes close to that beautiful planet of ours that harbors thousands of species of life.
Dare I say that anyone that says the possibility that life doesn't exist somewhere in the Universe is simply stupid, and idiot? Of course not, they
are entitled to their opinion, but to say it is NOT possible is ignorance.
With that said, today, my feeling is rather simple, I want to believe that their is life out there somewhere in the universe. I want to believe there
is intelligent life. As intelligent, almost as intelligent, more intelligent than us. I would really like to know. As far as microbial organisms,
perhaps a much greater chance.
But at the end of the day my friends, with the technology that we have (an Keplar is great, but still can only see a fraction of what is out there),
we have found absolutely, uncategorically no evidence of life anywhere else, and nothing as beautiful as the pictures above. We have found nothing.
Now has their been an alien presence that has come to Earth? Again, wouldn't it be grand. We have absolutely no proof. But ah, of course we have this
little cliche' :
"absence of evidence is not evidence of absence"
Ah, but we also have this as well:
In some circumstances it can be safely assumed that if a certain event had occurred, evidence of it could be
discovered by qualified investigators. In such circumstances it is perfectly reasonable to take the absence of proof of its occurrence as positive
proof of its non-occurrence.
So my dear friends. The seemingly reasonable answer is: We don't know if life exists beyond earth. Fact. However, Facts can change at any moment upon
learning and finding new facts. That's just the way I see it! I respect everyone else's opinion, you are entitled to that!!
Lastly, I would be remiss if I did not qualify my very first sentence...."the most amazing question perhaps man has, does life exist beyond our
Beautiful Earth??? " Not to get off topic, but only to be fair, and since over 4 Billion people on this planet, Earth believe in a Superior Being -
God, that also could be the most amazing question that man would really like to know, Is there a God?! Cheers!! ID!!!
