Intelligent life likely exists somewhere in the universe. They have likely not visited Earth.

Aliens as in landed in the trailer park and stuck something up some dudes butt only to disappear after having traveled however many light years to get here? Or maybe built the pyramids and infected everyone with plague just to be douchenozzles and again disappear never to be seen again except for Cleetus over at the trailer park?

No.


Aliens as in life that exists elsewhere in the universe amongst the billions of galactic clusters and the uncountable stars?

Yeah, I can dig that.

I think they do, in fact I'm certain, that in the whole universe we are the only life forms in existence.

Whether they are able to and do visit this planet, I don't know, probably not, but I don't know.

Given how common organic molecules are in the universe, and the sheer number of galaxies and planets, I'm sure there's some form of life elsewhere.

Likely, carbon based, but it'd be even more fascinating if it wasn't.

I would be extremely arrogant of us to think we are the only intelligent life that has sprung up in this massive universe.

The problem is that they may not exist now, it could have already happened and they went extinct, or it could be in the future long after we are extinct.

If we ever do find them and travel to them would be possible I think it would be fantastic, it just sucks I likely won't be around to see it.

Why? Who said this was the only planet that God made? just because he doesn't specially mention or talk about other planets and civilization doesn't mean he hasn't made them. Or is it mentioned that we are the only ones?

Maybe our God made us and our universe, might be another God is responsible for another planet and universe, we don't need to know, we follow our chin of command and that is all we need to know / do. Anything else is irrelevant to us and our salvation at this time, we need to focus on us and living the way our God want us to, nothing else matters to our salvation and that might be why we haven't been told. I don't know, just not limiting myself to one possibility. I mean, just because we don't know about it, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

I don't see how their existence could possibly disprove the existence of God.  Certainly that is not the view of the Catholic Church, which accepts the probability of intelligent life on other worlds.

IMO there is almost certainly some form of life outside of Earth, and I think it is also hihgly likely that some form of intelligent life exists out there.  I think it's also not outside the realm of possibility that if intelligent life on other worlds exists, that said life has at some point or another come to Earth in some fashion, even if just passing by, or at least knows of Earth's existence.  Obviously, nothing is known about extraterrestrial life, only that it is theoretically possible.

It is seems certain.  However it may be a lifeform we can't identify or comprehend its existence.



Also, just because they exist, doesn't mean they are more OR less advanced than us.

No way we are the only life. Space is way to big for that.

I think it is a projection of human arrogance on theoretical ETs to think they would have absolutely no interest in us whatsoever, or not interest in any form of contact whatsoever.  Likewise, I think it is a projection of progressivism that has become part of our culture onto said ETs to think that technological advancement to that degree in that specific area means such advancement in all areas, to include non-technical and non-scientific ones.

The existence of ETs would not mean that there is not only one true god.  "Created in his image" does not mean what you seem to think it means.  We are not physical copies of God; God is not corporeal.

Of course, if humans or something very close exists on another world, that would be very, very interesting, and not just from a theological standpoint, but from a scientific one as well.
