I don't think we are the only life in the universe. Some may be advanced some may not be. We took to the skies why wouldn't another life form do the same. So the idea of UFOs zipping around checking us out is to me plausible.

I do!

I forgot to mention that I do believe in UFOs.

I think it would be very vien for us to believe that God wouldn't create others in this huge universe. I also believe he is God and doesn't have to tell us if he did or didn't.

Just my 2c.

one of the main issues is speed and travel distance.
If some beings are actually visiting us, or for us to eventually visit another world, this may only be accomplished through dimensional travel as opposed to speed and distance as we may never be able to approach light speed.

Well theorems are currently being tested by NASA for faster than light travel.

Do I think our planet has EVER been visited by intelligent beings from another planet.

Nope.

Is there intelligent "life" on other planets?

Yep. Considering there are 100 billion planets in our own galaxy. I'm sure it worked out on some other planets too.

Will "they" ever reach us?

Nope.

Maybe true. We would have in the 1800s thaught it impossible to reach the moon or send even a probe out of our solar system. But we have. I agree you may be right, but I have learned that given enuff time, "anything" can (and usually does) happen. Probablity + time says so. And we must remember that this big old Universe is really old. We could be some of the yougest on the block.

Just my opinion.

There are believed to be hundreds of billions of planets similar to the earth in size throughout the universe. Some of them probably have life. But the laws of physics make the distances too great to manage with pure speed. And there is no convincing path to dimensional travel. So....are they out there? I think yes. Could they ever make it here? I think no.

Edelbrock E-Force 1593 & Magnaflow exhaust for that healthy American sound. Before SC 354 RWHP, after SC 484 RWHP. That's all I can do and still pass California smog.

Other intelligent life out there? Has to be.
Are they coming here? Eh...maybe. That "Ancient Aliens" show on HIstory2 brings up some interesting "points." Always makes me laugh to think "Well, if they are that smart and can travel that far, why the hell would they wanna see what we're up to?"

Hey, didn't you ever see that Twilight Zone episode where aliens came in a space ship claiming to be able to give mankind a perfect utopian existence? They had a book with heiroglyphics on the cover that were translated to read "To Serve Man". The world went wild because they believed these were benevolent beings and lined up to be shipped back to their planet. At the very end as people are going into the space ship, the translator who has been working on translating the text inside the book comes running up and screams "Stop! Stop" Don't get on board! The book!.....It's a cookbook!!!!!" So what could we possibly have that they could want? Meat!

Pretty much how I feel about it. However, I don't know that no one will ever be able to reach us. I just haven't seen any proof that they have.

I'm thinking if they're that smart and traveling lightyears to see earth with all that super high tech space stuff, WTF or HTF would they go all Roswell and crash into our planet.

I could never figure out why Jane Goodall wanted to study chimpanzees but she did. Maybe the same goes for them there aliens.

It would be very vain to think we are the smartest creature in the universe.

Just look around at those around you some time.
