    The universe is big, there's got to be something out there, right? There are over 100 billion planets in our galaxy alone, Earth can't be the only one with life. I'm interested to see people's thoughts on this.

    Please, no comments about what your religion says about this. It will just end up offending someone.

    I don't believe but I consider it statistically likely.

    i believe that intelligent life exist but the Fermi Paradox is a strong theory which suggests that intelligent life cannot pass several important steps in evolution to become intelligent, thus it's why we can't detect intelligent life.

    There could be multiple civilisations exist in this universe but most if not all of them are not advanced enough to find each other.

    Its possible that life exists on another planet somewhere, but they've certainly never come to earth or made contact with us, so their existence really doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things

    Yes I do believe there aliens. Of course not the ayy lmao type(maybe?), but other types of humans like us. There are too many planets for just 1 to have life on it right?

    No aliens because space is fake, space is not what we've been told it is.

    There's not one real picture of earth from 'space'.

    I don't believe in aliens but I believe aliens exist.

    As @Depravo says statistically it is more likely that there is other intelligent life in a universe so vast and still expanding (as far as we know).

    Hasn't anyone else read Hitch Hikers Guide.
    Quote the Guide
    "Space is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly hugely mindbogglingly big it is. I mean you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space. "

    Could there be? Perhaps. They could be as close as on Mars or even on Earth's moon, or as far as on the opposite side of the universe. I'd like to think there are, because it's a great big universe, and we're all really puny. We're just tiny little specks, about the size of Mickey Rooney........

    As big as the universe is, I believe it is very likely that aliens exist, but I see no reason to think they have visited Earth. On a related note, a new paper suggests that, as a solution to the Fermi paradox, we should not expect to meet any aliens until at least 1,500 years in the future.

    Microbial/bacterial life outside earth is extra terrestrial life.
    Yes, That is highly likely to exist.
    Thus "aliens" exist, we only need to find it.
    Only a fool would believe we're alone in this universe.

    As for actual intelligent life, it's possible.
    Will we find them/contact them? possibly not.
    Think about Star trek's prime directive.
    Space faring beings can't interfere with the development of "primitive" species.
    It could very well be that they are observing us at this very moment.

    If, infact there's no such thing would be true and the opposite would be more likely, then extra terrestrial intelligent life would've already be on its way to harvest this planet.
    One would travel... 600 lightyears (give or take a few) just to say hello.
    We'd be nothing but resources to them.

    As for actual war... (what many would believe)
    Come on, think for once.
    We pose no threat to them, they are highly technologically advanced.
    All our "smart" weaponry runs on circuits, they could just blast one gigantic EMP at our planet and all our weapons (except the normal firearms) would be disabled.


    TL;DR
    Microbial "alien" life, yes, highly unlikely that it won't exist.
    Intelligent "alien" life, yes, it might exist but we probably won't be interesting enough to them for actual contact.

    I believe intelligent life exists on other planets, but I don't believe they have ever visited Earth.

    I believe in alien life, but not those green things that fit into cartoons. I would die on the inside if the Milky Way was the only place that had any life
    Where can anyone derive us living on a painting from that image
    Plus if there aren't any real images then how do you know that's earth?
