Yes, and again, refer to TBD's post about it above for the reason.

Agreed, because it is a precedence, and that is evidence in existence.

Do you also think it is possible that there could be highly intelligent life elsewhere in the universe that is aware that there is life on earth, and that there could even be aliens on an exploratory mission towards earth?

We have not yet detected life on other planets let along intelligent life, so that is still unknown but intelligent life does exist on one and could exist on another. Could they be aware of life on Earth? There is no evidence to suggest they could, and given the vast expanse of the universe, they'd be more likely to be observing the Earth in its more distant past (given the speed of light and the sheer distances to other habitable planets) than the modern Earth.

Why do you keep shifting the goal posts with your questions? What do you think you are demonstrating?

Yes, since we again have precedence of intelligent life on this planet evolving from the discovery of the wheel to landing and exploring on another planet- the moon- and who have demonstrated as being capable of travelling to other planets such as Mars and Venus.

Yes, it is very likely.
Quote:that is aware that there is life on earth,
Yes, but it is very unlikely.
Quote:and that there could even be aliens on an explanatory mission towards earth?
Exploratory? Yes, but it is very, very unlikely.
