    I think if people from another planet found us and we met them that we and them would be so ecstatic to see each other we would not war even if both our leaders wanted us all too.

    The number of estimated stars like our own sun keep increasing.

    The number of suns in the Milky Way Galaxy alone is now estimated in the BILLIONS.

    The number of GALAXIES in the Universe is estimated in the BILLIONS.

    Equate in the fact that for each of these stars there are several Planets and Moons that orbit them..

    If you THINK a little it is actually about IMPOSSIBLE that the Universe isn't literally FULL of MILLIONS of advanced types of life forms.....

    If you THINK a little it is actually about IMPOSSIBLE that the Universe isn't literally FULL of an INFINITELY number of types of less than civilly intellect types of life forms.....
    I think we are being visited frequently. Of course theres loads of explanations for those weird lights. The weirdest conspiracy but actually quiet a feasible one that i have heard is its our own vehicles that people in the future are driving (the whole seeing things from the future if people in the future travel at the speed of light..?). Who knows. Wherever these beings are, they are very far away. They may not be in this galaxy, there not in this solar system. Maybe the closest beings are too underadvanced for extragalactic travel like us. Or maybe the closest intelligence to us have developed means of extragalatic travel but not advanced enough to reach us. Maybe nobody knows we are here because of the rate our radio waves travel and the distance at which they live. I find it very hard to believe life in this universe is unique. I mean when one takes into account all of the possible suns in the universe, planets, other solar systems in proportion to the size of the universe...you would have thought chances are pretty good at best. I think intelligent life is far more unlikely - not impossible, but very hard to find. Bacteria and other small organisms i believe reside within our own solar system (Mars is my best bet, and other moons in our planet).

    I would like to hear if it's yes or no or we are alone from you and logical reasons.
    Depends of the species.

    The grays, a slave race to the serpents, are definitely hostile.

    The existence of intelligent life on Earth is merely the result of a cosmic crap-shoot. Given the size of the observable universe there's no reason to believe a similar crap-shoot hasn't occurred elsewhere.
    Especially if you shoot craps billion, billion times...

    If there aliens advanced enough to reach us they will teach us the way we treat animals.

    I believe that emotions are a primitive instinct that will be deminished through evolution.

    After years of development and experiences, the fine tuning of a species to be at the height of their advances will result in only logical decision making and proliferation as a species...because emotions often affect critical survival choices in an adverse way.

    Do you go around being hostile to every bird, dog, cat, and ant? Let me know when you are waging a war on pandas because they are dumber than us. I wish to join. And when we have conquered the species... I shall rule the pandas with an iron fist!

    I think more evolved creatures would be less rash but their emotions wouldn't be void.

    There are no aliens, at least none that we know of.

    There may be life on other planets, but for the 5 million or so light years that we can see in every direction, there are none.

    If for some reason they were able to use worm holes or dimension-skip to get here, there'd be no reason for them to hide their presence, as it's not like we have anything close to the technology to follow then back.

    We are simply a tiny little oddity in the lower corner of a nondescript galaxy. One good solar flare and we're back to being space dirt.
