One of the biggest questions in the world of the unexplained - are we being visited by an Intelligent Alien Race ? Here's your chance to vote for what you think.

I'm very surprised on how low the votes are for "No, but they do exist".
Maybe this forum is less full of sceptics than i thought (or more likely they haven't bother voting yet  :D )

I already voted previously, but didn't post a reply. But coincidently, I did vote for "no, but they do exist."  The extreme vastness of the universe is the argument I have for both parts of the answer.

My two cents

I wouldn't mind hearing the points of view of some of those who voted that aliens have visited us, though...

::) Well not me, I voted for no but they do exist.
I agree (i think) with you two that it should be interesting to find out other points of view.

So nobody admits to thinking that they are here already?

I believe that aliens have been visiting our planet for millennia. There is such a breadth and wealth of information describing entities throughout the history of mankind to dismiss the possibility. Not everyone who says they have encountered or witnessed aliens is telling lies. Some will be mistaken, yes; some will be telling fibs, yes; some, by the law of averages, will be reporting actual alien contact.

I also believe that they are visiting our planet right up to the present day.

We have: biblical reports (Ezikiel), historical reports, prehistorical reports (cave paintings), military reports, modern reports (greys and abductions) and everything in between.

The argument that the distances are too vast does not hold water in my book. We don't know enough to say that it is not possible. It probably is but we're not clever enough to understand it yet.

It isn't the vast distance that is the main problem, but the vast amount of universe over such vast distances. Finding another alien life form would be akin to find one particular grain of sand on a beach.

If most developed intelligent species produce as much radio noise or as much garbage and orbiting junk as we do, I doubt it would be that hard.

Good one PS ;D


I don't know how far the first radio transmissions have gone, but in astronomical terms it wouldn't have been that far. But as an estimate, radio waves travel at the speed of light, so however many years ago the first transmission was, is how many lightyears away it is now.

are you sure radiowaves travel that fast? I must admit i don't know how fast they do travel, but i didn't think they moved that fast.
