My opinion is that the odds are very high (just about certain) that there's some type of life elsewhere in the Universe. Now, as for there being advanced highly intelligent life, the odds decrease. As for this advanced highly intelligent life visiting the Earth, the odds become lesser yet (most likely not). Just my personal 2 cents worth on the subject.

The way I understand IT is that the universe is simply just to big for there not to be any other life source out there! =) As simple as that.

There is most likely some form of alien life somewhere in the universe.

As to aliens advanced enough to visit us, I seriously doubt.

I'll go with 'not'.

I will say.. Maybe. Would be quite a dissapointment if there wasn't even a one-celled organism existing out there.

i'm convinced that there are at least some microbes out there and it's a matter of time until science will prove it. If there will be / was any attempt of contact with our species by an intelligent lifeform keeps me fascinated for years, but it's a 50/50 chance at its best. If they're out there and REALLY intelligent, they better avoid us....;)

Im sure of it. Im also sure that its just a matter of time until we will find aliens (microbial) on Mars, Titan, Europa.

As for intelligent ETs..... probably, somewhere out there.

Yes I believe there is life elsewhere in the universe besides this rather insignificant planet, I am, however, very skeptical of the idea that aliens come here in flying saucers to probe around in hillbilly butts.

Absolutely yes. Every place where life can take root, it will evolve and adapt to that environment. Not all life results in intelligent life; and not all intelligent life results in space-faring races. But even so, there are millions of space-faring races; far more intelligent species; and billions upon countless billions of worlds where the seeds of life have sprouted.

It would be typically egotistical of the human race to say no to this question, when it fact nothing can be proved or disproved.  But numerically, any odds are better than there being life on just one planet, as we are the undeniable proof that "it" can happen.

Personally, I am quite happy to think that there are many intelligent life-forms out there  -  as Lily says, quite how many are competent at space travel is a different matter, but if you imagine that humans will be happily burning through the galaxies within a few more hundred or thousand years, then there should be no logical barrier to assuming that somewhere out there a life-form much older than us is already doing it.

I'd hazard a guess that such a lifeform will be something beyond our comprehension, and their method of travel will be something far removed from our mechanical limitations. And we are really only considering this dimension too, when we discuss this. I believe that there are other dimension to be discovered and it may be that one of these dimensions may be the key to space travel. It may be the key to understanding the whole of everything, too.

Anyway, 42's the real answer. We all know that.

said with such conviction but pure conjecture for all that.

You only say that because you are for some reason convinced that it couldn't be the case. Why?

Because you state as fact what has no evidence whatsoever to support it - that is conjecture. Pure and simple.
