    Does it matter? They are millions of light years away, so it's almost like they don't exist.

    I definitely believe in UFO's that are not piloted by human beings. And I believe they come from underground or in the ocean or under the ocean (Bermuda triangle) lakes (lake Titicaca)

    I know it's a joke thread but I genuinely find stuff like this interesting, yes I believe there are probably aliens out there somewhere, possibly evenly highly developed. Just not anywhere near us. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drake_equation and specifically the sections headed "Fraction of the above that actually go on to develop life, fl" and below...

    Even assuming that all the numbers are very hard to plug in, assuming that we took the lowest possible input for each part of the equation, there is still likely to be at least 1+ intelligent civilisations out there, somewhere.

    Relay your location to their satellite and send them war photos, go there and wait until they drop the bombs. But be careful, if you survive, you may end up as this fella:



    PS: Good luck finding their satellite.

    There is probably some form of life elsewhere in the universe or there might've been at some point. Maybe ^_^

    Yep. They're definitely real. Have been abducted, probed, seen spaceship lights flashing etc.

    Yes, not joking. I developed abilities through qigong (simple and easy hand exercise). Drifted into sleep state once and was thinking about the Anunnaki, and I heard this horrible distorted static reverberation in my ears, they have sensors in their ships. ETs shrink their craft and float around my house, can see holograms too etc.

    I had
    I had an abduction but never was allowed to see who or what they were, they did have a robot with a screen they wanted me to watch. I think they were just playing a joke.

    I used to, but not anymore. I guess, like losing my religion, i just accepted it was all hogwash, and if there is some sort of life out there personally i would prefer it to stay the heck away from me and us on Earth, personally. But that's just me.

    Not in the traditional sense of the word. I don't doubt that life exists outside of this planet, but not those aliens with bug eyes and gray or green skin, or tentacles or oversized heads.

    Would you say their heads would be more sensibly sized, if they had heads at all?

    I do not know ... but if they exist, I think I would not mind being abducted
    It can not be worse than this

    Yes, so very likely. One of my regrets if i'm going to ctb is that I might just miss that first contact event. But I'm also a bit nervous it might change how I feel for all the scifi in space with aliens on them that I watched.

    Yes I do believe there are I don’t see how there can’t be other life out there. I hope one day we find out for sure.

    Sometimes I think about aliens coming to the planet to solve Earth's problems and give us free food, a place to stay and entertainment thanks to their robot labor. I have thought about several scenarios at this point, it's because I have nothing better to do. In my stories aliens are always these amazing creatures with high IQs and long lifespans thanks to science. I would probably want to be an alien myself, that's my way of escaping reality.

    I do, I also think they were here in ancient times. The pyramids didn't build themselves and you can't see the solar system with your naked eyes.

    Wouldn't it be amazing to fund a populated planet as advanced as us and see what they believe in, do they have religious beliefs and are they similar to our or completely different

    Maybe ancient people met those aliens and thought they were gods and that's how religions were born

    I can't believe we just came up with the idea of religion out of nowhere just to explain nature. It's nonsense

    So you’re telling me that out of all these universes and planets that we are the only beings. I refuse to believe that, although I don’t believe in all the “UFO sightings 100% real” videos, I do definitely think something is out there. How far away it is and if it’s even intelligent is impossible to know but hey there is probably a goat walking about on a planet millions of miles away from us.

    And we think of life how we see it. But what if life can evolve out of silicon or other chemicals? Or even just energy, like astral beings. In that case the universe or multiverse would be full of life. I don't think life needs dna to exist. Or earth conditions.

    Definitely not created for the original earth. The earth was RE created for organic life... At one time it was probably made up entirely of gem stones. (But that would be the biblical account that nobody believes in)

    Honestly, if I was an alien, I will go to invade this planet and I will see creatures like us acting as such assholes with others, I would run away from this shithole.

    Personally speaking, I subscribe to the "Rare Earth" theory when it comes to this sort of thing. While yes, considering the size of the universe, it's basically a mathematical guarantee that simple life (on the level of bacteria, kelp, flatworms, etc.) probably cropped up somewhere else at some point within the past 13 billion years, the idea that this universe, or hell, even this galaxy, is teeming with what we'd consider complex or intelligent life is quite an erroneous one. Life is far, FFFAAARRR, more fragile/rare than we think. For it to show up anywhere, even in what we perceive to be "ideal conditions", is probably a 1 in 100000000000000 chance occurrence. If there are any aliens out there, then I highly doubt they are space faring (due to the inherent impossibility of interstellar travel regardless of technology), and they're almost certainly very few & far between (as in 20 instances of life in this galaxy alone, if that).



    Even if we do entertain the notion that aliens are zooming around the cosmos, why in the name of Shiva would such a hyper advanced civilization want to waste their time with a bunch of worthless, unevolved, cretinous simians like humans? I'd say there's probably a quarantine zone around this solar system to warn any passer's by to stay well clear of the nearby planet of horrors, but frankly I can't see why they'd bother. This planet is an insignificant backwater, currently infested with an extremely overpopulated & rapacious organism (aka humans) that shows very little signs of intelligence and is, as a species, quite dull & uninteresting. If I were an alien (aside from wanting to laugh my proverbial ass off at how suicidally stupid humans are), I doubt I'd care one whit about some boring planet of shit like this one, just the same way anyone here would care one whit about investigating some mundane anthill or blade of grass in their backyard. Anyway, regardless of whether there are flying saucers or there aren't, either way, who cares. Matters about as much to me as to the existence of leprechauns, unicorns, or bigfoot. Nil. Since even if they did all exist, life would still be a merciless meat grinder and something I'd still like to leave ASAP.


    Alien in picture: "Would you look at that! These hairy, savage bipedal creatures covering this unremarkable nearby rock are actively killing their one & only biosphere! They'll literally be extinct within the century! How fucking stupid can you get! BAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!"

    @Imaginos Also space travel requires industrial civilization, and industrial civilization and ecosystems don't tend to get along too well by our experience.

    Exactly. What's more, when you factor in the enormous cost of energy required for space travel, the constant/hyper lethal threat of cosmic radiation, physical deterioration & atrophying in space, an ever expanding universe, tiny pebble sized collisions causing huge damage due to the insanely high speeds necessary to get anywhere at all in space, and the speed of light barrier, it's highly unlikely any species of a similar technological level to our own, or greater, ever makes it out of their local solar system. The cost of civilization eventually becomes too great and the species in question either ends up destroying themselves, or the available energy taps out and they remain trapped on their planet forever. It's a sad predicament, no doubt, but, I mean, when has life ever not been that? Of course, there's no space civilizations. Life's too boring/unrelentingly disappointing for anything even mildly interesting like that.

    Life itself is just contributing to the process of entropy, let alone civilization.

    If you were near a supernova, you'd be more than mildly interested ^.^
