Hell truthfully even in person you cant say 100% its real. But for myself, i would say, in person.
    First off, humans have only been on this earth 'bout 500,000 years and it has only been a little over a 100 years ago that we started makin' many of the technological advances that we enjoy today. I think that u overestimate what mankind is truely capable of at this current time. It's much more difficult ta prove or disprove that life exists on other planets than u might think and u also haveta take inta account that not all lifeforms have a highly evolved sense of intellect or r even technologically capable. If other lifeforms exist and they r, at least, at the same level of technology as we r; then it would b jus' as difficult for them ta prove our existence as it would b for us ta prove theirs. This would include any communication and space travellin' technologies and, again, this is only IF any other lifeforms out there have, at least, the same level of technology as we do.

    Re: Life on Other Planets

    I'm taking an astrobiology class in college... "Life In The Universe"... Boy is it interesting.

    Think of this:
    The Earth is part of a small solar system within the Milky Way Galaxy. Just in THIS galaxy, there are about 100 BILLION stars, like our Sun. There are vast groupings of galaxies spread out through the universe... Containing BILLIONS of other stars.
    It's so massive, how could we ever really know what's out there when we can't even fully explore our own solar system?

    Think of this as well:
    Light years is how long it takes light to reach Earth - Enabling us to actually see it.
    That means, basically... If a star is 13.5 million light years away from us, we are actually viewing it the way it was 13.5 million years ago. We don't know what's going on in the present around that star. There could be life evolving as we speak!

    My text book gives the example of trying to view the planets of a "nearby" star as: Being in Washington D.C. and trying to see marbles orbiting a grapefruit in California. LOL!!!

    We truly don't know what's out there... Which is why I believe that there is some form of life out there. And the fact that all the elements needed for life are everywhere in the universe... If it happened here, who's to say it didn't happen in some other star system? ^_^

    *I love this class!*

    Re: Life on Other Planets

    I believe there actually is life on other planets, I mean there are other sun's in the soloar system right? so that would mean that there has to be at least one planet the same distance from it as the Earth is to our moon, that is able to support life, not too mention *tapping into memory* didn't scientists find frozen ponds on, lets see was it the moon or another plannet?, anyways they have found remnents of frozen water on different spherical bodies in space, known as planets. I strongly believe we are not the only planet that can suuport and or has life on it, we just may not have the technology yet to confirm it. However, I do believe, not only because I like astrology, and anything that is likely to show on the discovery channel, but my imagination is big. I dont think that all the UFO's sightings are only linked to the militaries testings.

    Re: Life on Other Planets

    My simple two cents:

    There can be life out there... but I don't really care until we build either a space army or a space embassy.
    Because without either of those, we're screwed.

    Re: Life on Other Planets

    Spike'sRose and Joe Mage pretty much just repeated what I already have said. I would also like to thank Joe Mage for pointing out that the time Humans have been alive on Earth, that it has been only in the last 100 years we have been braking new grounds in technology and even less then that, about 50 years or so of actually looking out into space beyond our own solar system. So to say that we are the only ones out because we haven't heard anything now is like saying "Let's go camping... *30 seconds later*... I want to go home." And once again I said that just because there is life out there doesn't mean it will be intelligent!! I have said that 3 times now and I was right that when I said that the majority of people who think about life out there think that they are hyper advanced race. Those who think that well I just have to say this to you... You have been watching too many sci-fi movies. I will point out that once again, we are on the outer arm of our galaxy!! As shown in this image...

    [IMG][/IMG]

    As you can see, in a galactic sense, we are in the hicks and the hollers of our Galaxy. The reason why we haven't heard or seen anything that is undisputable evidence of life out there is because we are in a remote location. We live on a tropical Island in the sea of space. We are nothing more then mice squeeking on our Isalnd to mice squeeking on another Island. I would also like to point out that the little white cycle that my really crappy arrow is pointing to most likely has 100 other systems in it as well including our own. Maybe now you guys will understand just how small we really are.

    i would like to point you to a very theological question then.

    Is God Wasteful?

    If the answer is no (and it is, he said so himself), then there is no way that God would make an infinite and growing universe and only put life on one planet. it just doesn't make sense. The Prophet Elijah (i think it was him, but it was some old testament prophet) asked God if mankind was alone in his struggle, and God replied "there are things which you are not meant to know". he didn't deny, but nor did he say yes. but without a denyal there is no closure

    thanks to zyta for the sick sig and avy!

    No, I think they're are lots of intelligent species out there. The reason they haven't visited or contacted is because were not really much of an interest to them. In other words were too primitive to spark their interest in us. Like how in star trek, were weren't taken notice until we developed warp drive.

    Re: Life on Other Planets

    And i dont exactly think you got what i was saying. I was talking about humans tricking other humans into belief/disbelief of alien life. What the heck are you talking about? Im not overestimating our technology. If the government, or hell bill gates wanted us to think there were aliens, they have the technology to do it. They could "fool the masses" what is all that talk about us proving ourselves to aliens. We are debating if they are real at all, not how to contact them or prove OUR existence to them...
