Life on other planets?

Do you believe that there is life out there on other planets? Why/why not?

What’s the possibility that there could be life on other planets?

    Green 666 by isotope rays is NOT forgivable; it leads to permanent hell. 666 is given with World Passport with no name on it (grey plastic card). Police 666 people on highways. Food stores and prisoners/insane asylum folks (released by the antichrist) 666 people too. Reject vaccines. Don't go into UFO to be healed by demons. Hide with Orthodox Christians to escape 666; leave all electronics behind so that antichrist's minions can't track you; burn documents as documents are from Satan.

    Source(s): According to the Last Prophet (aka incarnated ARCHANGEL URIEL aka saint healer VYACHESLAV KRASHENINNIKOV) if the last descendant rejects mark of the beast, then his/her direct ancestors go to permanent heaven. To reject mark of the beast, one needs to hide within a 10-15 people group without electronics/documents. Documents are from Satan; burn them. Electronics can be used to track you and to show the antichrist (even on old broken unplugged TV set from 1970's using Tesla's ether); forgive me.

    given the universe age 13 & some billion years.the lgth of time  it took for us 2 legger mammals to develop,wo absolute certainty we suggest there likely is,only in the past 50 years have we been assiduously searching

    Of our planet alone the Holy Bible declares that God “formed it even to be inhabited.” (Isa. 45:18) And long ago God’s Word declared that the heavens belong to the Creator, “but the earth he has given to the sons of men.” (Ps. 115:15, 16) So the Bible shows that the earth is unique among planets.

    I think there will be other planets in the universe that may have life on them. However, there may not be any others. It seems unlikely given the size of the universe that there will be other planets without life on them. However, while there is a lot of planets in the universe there may not be many that are hospitable to life. It is not enough to say there is a huge number of planets so some must have life on them. The conditions on those planets must be conditions in which life can get started and then evolve. Given we think the same laws of chemistry and physics apply throughout the universe then life elsewhere will probably be carbon-based and require similar conditions to life on Earth.

    There may be planets where life is similar to the prokaryotic organisms we have on Earth. That could be because life there has not existed long enough to evolve to other life forms or because the conditions prevent this. There may be planets with what are often term 'more advanced' forms of life. It is even possible there is life with highly intelligent species. There could even be planets with such advanced life forms their technology is far more advanced than ours. There is also the possibility of planets on which life once existed but where it is now extinct.

    It is probale that if life does exist on other planets that it exists on a small fraction of the total and they are so far away from each other that it is not possible for us to detect any signatures of life, and, if there is highly advanced life, we cannot detect any signs of this.

    Life evolved on this planet, so we know it's possible. There are 400 billion stars in our Galaxy. We know most stats have several planets and moon's. That's trillions of planets in just one galaxy. So chances are very good that some of those planets have life. Almost certain.

    With trillions of planets just in our galaxy, I don't buy earth is the only planet with life "out there".

    If moss piggies can survive on our moon, I am sure of it.

    Not life as we know it to be.

    The question is not of whether life exists on other planets. It is whether any life exists that we can ever detect or know about.

    People will rant about "all the stars", as if that will somehow magically conjure up klingons and vulcans, which is presumably what they actually *want* to exist. But that argument is just a cheapskate version of the Drake equation, where they ignore all the terms except the one term they are fixated on, because it offers hope that their fantasies will be fulfilled. In reality the Drake equation has many terms, only one of them need be sufficiently small, and space aliens do not exist, no matter what megalomanic star counts people can pull out their whatever.

    But don't forget "all the space". We don't live in the Marvel Universe. We live in the real universe, which is unimaginably huge. That enormity guarantees that we can never inspect every single star, or even a tiny portion of them, to see whether a microbe exists anywhere. So the question of existence can never be proven or falsified. It is basically a useless question.

    All that matters is whether life that we can detect exists. And lets face it: hundreds of years of astronomical observation, and decades of SETI has never revealed the least bit of evidence that space boogers exist. We are therefore alone.

    The possibility of life existing somewhere in a distant galaxy far far away is indefineable, and only of interest to philosophers to ponder around a campfire. The possibility that life that we can detect exists is close enough to zero that for all intents and purposes it is zero. I recommend you celebrate the fact. It is one of the most profound discoveries of our time.

    Yes, I do believe there Is life on other planets or has been in the past. However, Earth likecplanets may be a lot rarer than is assumed . Whether that life is carbon based and intelligent or sapient may be very difficult to determine. Even on Earth many humans deny vociferously that great apes, whales, elephants, dolphins and many birds are all intelligent.

    There is likely ~one intelligent species per spiral galaxy, which means there are ~400,000,000,000 intelligent alien species in the observable Universe, with the nearest one being in the Andromeda galaxy, some 2,400,000 light years from us.
