Also, I voted no.

If there are other intelligent life forms out there, and if they are capable of interstellar travel, then probably they are aware that there is other life out in the cosmos as well.

That being said, there is basically no reason for them to travel here, given our highly unevolved civilization.  Or, as RJ stated, they are looking for resources such as water and then in that case we are basically fucked.

Would microscopic life count?  Because I dig the concept behind the "seeding" theory, in which microbes hitch a ride on comets and asteroids and the like. 

That said, I still voted no, because you're clearly talking about green people with laser beams who want us to join their galactic senate.

The thing about odds and likelihood is that you can't make predictions based on a lone instance of whatever it is you're talking about.

It's all well and good that we've got a billionty billion planets in our infinite universe, but so far as we know, life has arisen exactly once. You can't extrapolate from once. It might be that the odds of life appearing in any given universe the size of ours is one in, say, fifty seven. For example. If that's the case, then no, it's not likely there's any other life in our universe. We already got lucky with our one in fifty-seven odds that life appeared here.

Another thing--what's life in this context? Carbon-based? With "intelligence" comprehensible to us? This is even more of a stretch.

On the other hand, I'm pretty sure They Live is a documentary.

'Alien' and 'Extraterrestrial' mean different things to different people, but I am on the side of the fence that 'extraterrestrial' cells, be they bacteria or microscopic cellular organisms, have made their way to Earth. Are they sentient beings, no probably not. But cellular life is cellular life. Even if it is too small to see with the naked eye. Think of all the meteors and meteorites that have hit the planet. Microbial 'aliens' were more than likely on said meteors.

Mister Charlie told you so.

From the netflix thread, this is pretty good relative to other 'films' on the subject.





Pretty well made and intriguing UFO/alien documentary.

Solid logic that I hadnít considered before...

I do know a guy who was working at Loring Air Force Base in the early 70s when a UFO hovered over their nuclear arsenal for a while sending the base into high alert for days.

I told him we saw some unexplainable things there in the 90s as well.
