what sort of aliens are likely to exist. that's if they exist at all.
personally I don't believe there coming here. or they have spaceships.
but that's my opinion and believers are free to disagree with me.
I think IMO if they exist. there just bugs, or fish like animals that live in water
or human people. but with different languages.
what does everyone else think?

I think life is abundant in the universe and varied.  There would be intelligent life elsewhere.  Would they or could they visit? I just don't know.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

I don't believe there is any life anywhere in the universe. Besides earth obviously and maybe some bacteria in our solar system with its origin from earth.


I'm open to changing my opinion though.

Glad that you brought this up, Ali!

I WANT to believe that our galaxy is regulated by a version of humans with zero neurological inconsistency. No cognitive dissonance, no incoherence.

Certainly you know how absurdly huge the universe is, don't you?

They came with a Bible and their religion. stole our land, crushed our spirit, and now they tell us we should be thankful to the Lord for being saved.

So... Huge compared to what? Our universe could be small compared to other universes. Science knows almost nothing.

Uh... I simply don't know what to say on this. It might be true in a huge, massive Kardashian or Lohan level stretch but they are working on it.

Would be interesting if we have just as many illegals from Eastern Europe. :)

So big that it sat on a rainbow and made skittles.

I bet there are some aliens on a planet a lot like ours positioned the same distance from a star like us, that are very similar to humans. I wonder what kind of differences could come about between the hypothetical 2 just on their own, even if most of the conditions were the same planet/temp/environment-wise.

We are royally screwed if they can do FTL navigation and believe that monotheism is a blasphemy.

I think Neil has a point there, IF there is any intelligent life out there why would they be concerned about us, Hononestly I dont know what an alien species would look like, I dont think it would look like the iconic Greys though. Thats just my opinion of course

I don't see your point, but I think his was in trying to get you to see how irrational it is to think one almost unfathomably small planet next to one almost unfathomably small star in one almost unfathomably small galaxy is the only place where life exists in a literally unfathomably large universe.

Even if they look humanoid, they certainly wouldn't look like Greys. Now cue the nightmare scenario.

The same reason we would be concerned about them, I'd assume. Finding and learning about other life in this space we share. We do it on our planet; why would it stop there? Don't stop until you're done.
