Given the size of the universe, it is unlikely that Earth is the only planet to develop some sort of life, Hawking told an audience at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. He added that humanity must embrace space exploration, if only to ensure its long-term survival. "While there may be primitive life in our region of the galaxy, there don't seem to be any ... [More]

This topic was started earlier today on this thread: Aliens MUST exist, says Stephen Hawking I could have said the same thing, so quote me now because I'm saying: The universe is so vast that there is some possibility that alien life exists is some form. Are you gonna?

"While there may be primitive life in our region of the galaxy, there don't seem to be any advanced intelligent beings," said Hawking Then i had this from a site i bookmarked...(make of it what ever ya like)... Hawking raised the threat of biological engineering in saying humans must colonize space or face an end as a species. "I don't think the human race will survive the next thousand years, unless we spread into space," Hawking told the Daily Telegraph. "There are too many accidents that can bef... [More]

He keeps pushing that. He added that humanity must embrace space exploration, if only to ensure its long-term survival. "While there may be primitive life in our region of the galaxy, there don't seem to be any advanced intelligent beings," said Hawking Maybe he's an alien. hehehe

For a renowned physics professor to make a statement "that primitive life may exist somewhere in the universe" is insulting to a actuall intellegent creature thats knows that even without physical proof the universe demands that you conclude there is because of mathamatics and what we have seen already. So yawn Stephen.
