Poll. Who believes in Aliens ? Who believes they have visited Earth ? For the record l dont believe aliens have ever visited Earth, but other life could be out there, the odds sure are for it.

i do believe that someone has taught us humans how to farm and how to build etc. cmon look at the pyramids - those are just too hard to construct with brutal human power. or the same sort of buildings that the mayans had, and both were followers of the sun god.. what a coincidence.

I do believe there are other species out there, somewhere far, far away. Perhaps even closer than we think. I do, however, doubt that they have visited us. Who knows what we're talking about - aggressive or passive ones. If they have visited us long ago, they might have, or have not attacked. And Ochidea; perhaps they could have done so at any rate - it's not like they've build the pyramids within a day. Both being followers of the 'Sun God' could be merely serve as a motivation to accomplish whatever they accomplished.

As such, my vote goes to 'No'. While the lack of the speed of light prevents us from exploration far away, this doesn't mean we cannot explore and perhaps discover something we haven't found yet.

If you're not overly bothered about timespan the light speed barrier doesn't present any obstacle.

orly?

It takes more than a few thousand years for a human to evolve. Humans of the past history were just as smart as present day, they just lacked an understanding of the world, but not how to perform tasks. If you took a baby from, say, the Mayan culture and raised them in present day you wouldn't notice a difference in their abilities.

I don't believe in aliens...I believe we humans will over come if we ever find the courage to unf'ck ourselves and have the courage to believe in ourselves without the need for false hopes, alien and/or celestial saviors.

I do accept the probability that aliens exist. Not certain if I will live long enough to see it in my life time, but I'd bet we will find bacterial life under the Martian crust and maybe oceanic life on Europa once we get out that direction. Our whole perspective would have to change if these discoveries come to fruition. I would argue that if we exist, than surely another or rather several other sentient species out in the cosmos must also exist. I just don't believe it is as abundant as we imagine in Star Trek or Star Wars. Our own planet is a living reminder that our presence in Earth's history is unique and fleeting. Carl Sagan once surmised that the reason we have yet to find our counterparts in space is either they are ignoring us until we reach a maturity the rest of the cosmos will accept or that they reached a technological impasse and annihilated themselves. What we may find centuries from now on distant planets may be sobering reminders of what we may or will become - ancient remains. Even so, it would still prove that we were not alone.

I don't think aliens visisted Earth. We probably would see a lot of evidence for that if it had happened.

There may be aliens out there, but I don't think the likelihood of them being able to visit us is so good either. You can think of it as of time-travel not being likely because there aren't any visitors from the future: if it is possible for an intelligent race to develop some kind of warp-engine with which to explore space then that race probably would have amassed enormous resources shortly thereafter which would allow them to explore those planets that are likely to support life.

But who knows, if research on Earth keeps going at the rate it has been over the last 100 years we might have some pretty amazing toys in a few thousand years.

I agree, I just can't imagine why a species advanced enough would want to visit our backward little planet...but then again our backward little planet wants to visit them. Anyway, what 'evidence' exist is circumstantial and more likely the product of active imaginations. I don't doubt people who seriously believe they saw a UFO, because they did, they saw something they couldn't identify, it just doesn't make it alien. The human mind is a mystery. If you see an alien, then your brain tries to accommodate your will and inserts an image or suggestion. If you interrogate an innocent man long enough, then he will assume guilt.

As far as space travel, I think it is probable. Mathematical equations suggest folding space (essentially riding on the coat-tails of light) is possible, but the ability to do so is still centuries away for us. We'd have to find away to harness and continuously produce the power of a star. But that is the easy part. The hard part is building a craft that wouldn't fall apart or implode in the process.

Of course aliens exist. The one's closest to us, like on the moon and nearby planets, just aren't what people think they are. An alien is an other-worldly being or organism which also includes single celled organisms, which we have found. As for advanced life forms that people actually define aliens as, I believe that there are life forms outthere outside our current ring of planets.

[/QUOTE] Good points. I actually saw some inexplicable ufo-like thing once and the first thing that jumped to my mind was "aliens!". With all the science fiction around you only need a bit of imagination and something unusual for that to happen.

I don't think anyone found alien organisms yet, there are just some speculations and indirect evidence (such as methane on Mars).
