I don't think that they are visiting us or anything crazy like that, but why not microscopic organisms or something somewhere? There are trillions of galazies with a gazinnion stars and planets or whatever, and is no reason to think that Earth is alone in haing life. The elements that we are made of, which come from stars, is everywhere. And there are virtually infinite chances for life to arise. Science and reason says that the answer is likely yes.

God created the other planets but He didn't say anything about life being on them. So therefore I don't believe there is life on other planets.

He didn't tell you about a lot of things that are true, and also He didn't say that He didn't.

The Bible was put together by man. The Church had more scrolls than what they put in the Bible. I think if you truely want to know God then you will want to know everything and not let the Church form your beliefs. God created all kinds. There is God, angels, santin, demonds and they are not here on earth. I would say they're from another world. To think we are the only life would be wrong.

The likelihood of life on other planets is about the same as ghosts being real. I'm not saying one way or the other. I just see both as being comparable.

The realization of how large the universe is and to say we are the only beings is just dumb.

God had them to put in the Bible all that was necessary.

No the Church chose what to put in there. There were many other books that wasnt put in. Some was even burned. I bet you didnt know the book of Mathew was written 300 years after the death of Christ. I'm sorry but the Bible has its flause. Why didnt they record all of what they had because the Church wanted to control not educate. It still stands true today. Most people want to be told what to think so they can close their mind and not have to think.

No, they aren't comparable in the least bit.

One is supernatural, and the other isn't.

Believe what you will. You will be wishing you believed otherwise some day. By the way, "flause" is spelled "flaws".

So please explain. I'm simply saying "in my opinion" the likelihood is the same. There is no scientific proof that either exist.

Of course there is no scientific proof that either exists, but that doesn't mean that the likelihood of either is the same. The existence of ghosts would violate the laws of science as we know it, but the existence of life elsewhere in the universe wouldn't in the least bit violate the laws of science. If you take much stock in science as we know it, then those two possibilities aren't even in the same ballpark possibilitywise.

I think to assume that out of all the planets that have been discovered orbiting around a comparable star as our sun. And in the inhabitable zone. To think that we are the only planet to have life forms is very egotistical. Anyone who would still believe this would also think that the universe revolves around earth.

Why will I be wishing to believe otherwise. You have it all figured out. I think you'll be wishing you would have opened your mind and tried to find God yourself. I love that fact you compare youself to God. Even in the books of the Bible Jesus was a teacher. He never judged nor did he make judgemental statements. Thanks for the spelling lesson at least that is based on knowledge you learn from an educator not a controler.

Searching for ET, But No Evidence Yet

By Phil Larson


Thank you for signing the petition asking the Obama Administration to acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence here on Earth.

The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race. In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public's eye.

However, that doesn't mean the subject of life outside our planet isn't being discussed or explored. In fact, there are a number of projects working toward the goal of understanding if life can or does exist off Earth. Here are a few examples:
• SETI—the Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence—was originally stood up with help from NASA, but has since been moved to other sources of private funding. SETI's main purpose is to act as a giant ear on behalf of the human race, pointing an array of ground-based telescopes towards space to listen for any signal from another world.
•Kepler is a NASA spacecraft in orbit that's main goal is to search for Earth-like planets. Such a planet would be located in the "Goldilocks" zone of a distant solar system—not too hot and not too cold—and could potentially be habitable by life as we know it. The Kepler mission is specifically designed to survey our region of the Milky Way galaxy to discover Earth-sized, rocky planets in or near the habitable zone of the star (sun) they orbit.
• The Mars Science Laboratory, Curiosity, is an automobile-sized rover that NASA is launching soon. The rover's onboard laboratory will study rocks, soils, and other geology in an effort to detect the chemical building blocks of life (e.g., forms of carbon) on Mars and will assess what the Martian environment was like in the past to see if it could have harbored life.

A last point: Many scientists and mathematicians have looked with a statistical mindset at the question of whether life likely exists beyond Earth and have come to the conclusion that the odds are pretty high that somewhere among the trillions and trillions of stars in the universe there is a planet other than ours that is home to life.

Many have also noted, however, that the odds of us making contact with any of them—especially any intelligent ones—are extremely small, given the distances involved.

But that's all statistics and speculation. The fact is we have no credible evidence of extraterrestrial presence here on Earth.

That is the dumbest comparison I've ever read. All it takes for there to be life on another planet is is being able to have liquid water, and boom! There's life. It might not be intelligent life, but there would be microorganisms. That's far more believable than someone having a spirit and it coming out of them when they die and floating around somewhere.

Why is it you think that many more people believe in ghosts as opposed to aliens.
