Please state your evidence.

I don't have any concrete evidence, certainly not enough to convince an atheist via web. This is simply my opinion

OK, but why would you have this opinion?

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

RE: What is your opinion about aliens?
i couldnt imagine us being all there is. it seens likely that we are not alone but i sometimes wonder. i mean maybe there are reasons we can exist that we dont yet understand. it could be that we are the first place in the universe in which life has appeared. perhaps we will spread life out into the cosmos. who knows?
are aliens coming here. im going with no, i dont believe so. if they are i doubt very much that any of us apes know anything about it.

RE: What is your opinion about aliens?
I'm ready to have a serious talk about aliens. However, it must be a different thread than this thread. Also, we must talk probabilities of the existence of aliens and not certainties.

Is anyone willing?

Quite extraordinarily probable that some are willing.

Alien life seems quite probable. I also think there are likely some other civilizations in the milky way. I'm skeptical as to whether they are visiting us. I doubt it. Most sightings are ridiculous, and most abductions are easily explained as hypnagogia. I've personally experienced sleep paralysis accompanied by shadowy figures approaching my bed. Its pretty common.

I am of this opinion, too...but I don't have any evidence to support it. Nevertheless, I have the opinion that there are intelligent aliens out there - somewhere. The reason I hold this opinion is the same reason I used to believe that extra-solar planets probably existed - even though it couldn't be proved until recently.

I figured our little slice of the universe - our Solar System - probably wasn't unique for a long time ago I gave up on the belief that anything was neccessarily unique. Science has shown that the moon and stars do not orbit the earth and that the earth is nowhere near the center of the Universe and that our star and galaxy are like billions of others. Also, evolutionary science has shown that Homo Sapien was not the only man to evolve and didn't even neccessarily become king-of-the-planet for hundred thousand years or more after he evolved: that was spot was occupied by Heidelbergensis and Neanderthal. Thus, when I extrapolate all this "non-uniqueness", it doesn't seem unreasonable to conclude that alien life - even intelligent alien life - is highly probable.

Hope this helps.

Oh, I agree with you, except the moon does orbit the earth. Drinking Beverage


No, I was asking rasta why he believes "I also have reason to believe they play a part in our government, that is if they are on this planet and/or have had prior communication with our species."


That seems unlikely in the extreme.
