Absolutely, I'm glad others are catching on. We must accept their superiority and obey their commands.

Space is huge. We are still discovering things about it, finding new planets, so to think we are alone in this universe could be human arrogance.

Side: YES

Space is enormous and with seemingly infinite variety. Somewhere else there must be life. Whether or not that life looks and acts like human or is more like a bacteria, or worm, or fish, or 6 breasted purple bear, remains to be discovered.

And even if one takes the religious approach to answering this, if you believe there is a realm where other beings dwell (Heaven/hell, angels/demons) then technically you believe in life somewhere other than what we know on earth.

Oh. Well then the 6 breasted purple bear scenario is confirmed. Gotta love those luchadors.

Side: YES

If you truly expect that in this vast infinite universe of ours we are the only life, you're wrong. Whether or not they have visited us is a different matter altogether.

Side: YES

They are real. I've seen the burritos. I've seen the rice and beans. I've seen the tacos. I've seen them climbing fences in South Texas and Southern California...

Hi Outlaw60, good to know you're back 'kicking ass' on a site which has degenerated into a mutual admiration society of self important loonie left losers.

Well, in that interpretation of aliens I will support your glaring obvious truth.

Definitely, Antrim. What this site needs is another neo-Nazi halfwit who got banned for consistently referring to black people as niggers!!!!! I'm sure that's exactly the type of clientele Andy is trying to attract to the site. Well said mate.

But, calling people names ISN'T good debating.. It IS being a good right winger, though..

Bwa, ha ha ha ha ha..

considering the fact that our sun is one of 200 BILLION other stars in the milky way, I think the chances of us being alone is absolutely small.

Bacteria is very real and viruses are real but we cannot see them without a microscope. stars existed all along yet our knowledge of them did not exist without brilliant scientists, telescopes and star charts. our reality is very real but the probaility that there are other realities that exist with other beings different from our own are very high just do the math.

I feel that as mankind's poisoning of earth continues to accelerate unabated towards the total destruction of the ecosystem upon which all species, including humans, depend for their existence we look beyond our dying planet in the hope that there are other life forms which someday, and somehow may be able to save us from ourselves.

In the total absence of any tangible evidence of the reality of aliens we must regard their existence as no more than the fanciful notions of Don Quixote type characters who enjoy the escapism value of trying to rationalize their hysterical hypotheses by predictably stating meaningless statistics about the vastness of the universe and how such mind boggling enormity MUST support other life forms.

How and why do these dummies assume that aliens MUST exist simply because of the endless expanses of space?

At best it could be argued that there is a, as yet unsubstantiated, minute glimmer of a possibility that aliens exist somewhere in the immensity of the cosmos.

But dear fools, so far you're only describing the visions of your over vivid, juvenile imaginations.

Well put

Yes, and this type of thinking is not limited to Aliens. For instance, modern Superhero's are essentially based on this notion as well

I think you are pushing this way too far. Based on your response, if it were discovered that there were an order of magnitude or higher more galaxies than current, you would still deem the probability argument as "dumb". We do not know of any other life form (extraterrestrial), however the fact that we exist, are made up of the most abundant materials in the Universe, and exist under at a time period some 14 billion years into the Universe's life span gives quite a lot of reason to sensibly speculate on the existence of other similar/quasi-similar life forms elsewhere given the numbers and time span involved.

At best it could be argued that there is a, as yet unsubstantiated, minute glimmer of a possibility that aliens exist somewhere in the immensity of the cosmos.

Again, you are highly overstating this ironically based on your own counter biases. That is, yes, people like Carl Sagan and many others were/are very biased toward a Cosmic Zoo vision of the Universe (i.e. high levels and diversity of life in the Cosmos) and likewise you, Ray Kurzwiel and others are similarly biased in the opposite direction. In truth, either extreme or everything in between are all very much possibilities based on our current level of knowledge (or lack thereof).

Superheroes are childish fantasy figures invented by Hollywood. They have nothing to do with aliens and this is evident by the fact that they mostly have human form. You should also learn to spell "superheroes" because your understanding of English is terrible. Put more effort into learning your own language and less into upvoting your own inane BS.

xMathFanx, you have a shockingly poor grasp of English. Even when you have a point nobody can find it.

We do not know of any other life form

Also, you clearly never read the news.

A NASA research team of scientists at the Johnson Space Center (JSC), Houston, TX, and at Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA, has found evidence that strongly suggests primitive life may have existed on Mars more than 3.6 billion years ago

https://www2.jpl.nasa.gov/snc/nasa1.html

Evidence that life exists on Titan, one of Saturn’s biggest moons, appears to have been uncovered by Nasa scientists.

Hi x, thanks for your reasoned and well balanced response.

Whilst specific points of your counter argument are most definitely well worth consideration it must be recognized that Sagan's vision of a cosmic zoo, which I think was first depicted in his book 'The Cosmic Connection', is no more than a commercially published book of fantasy for entertainment/profit value, whereas Kurzwiel's wholly practical standpoint is based on the fact that, despite numerous deep space probes, both physical and optical, absolutely no hard, tangible evidence even suggesting the existence of alien life, has ever been produced.

On the flip side of the coin maybe in this instance the old adage, ''ABSENCE OF PROOF IS NOT PROOF OF ABSENCE'' is applicable.

How do we know that aliens don't purposely avoid us like the plague and due to their advanced technology are able to conceal their existence from us?

Maybe Earth is their equivalent to our perception of hell where their sinners are consigned and forced to listen to Democratic Party political broadcasts forever and ever.

Anyway, s'nuff of this topic.

Yes sirree Bob, I sure succeeded in stirring up the rabble today.

Down voting and futilely spewing out endless streams of meaningless profanities is the hallmark of those who are incapable of presenting a rational counter argument.

The lower orders are running amok frantically, just like headless chickens looking for MEN FROM OUTER SPACE, ROARS OF LAUGHTER FROM THE BACK STALLS*.

It's truly satisfying when one achieves one's goal.

Keep down voting and don't stop the profanities as they're both clear evidence that I'm succeeding in my mission to agitate the filth.
