The problem is that you don't have the faintest ghost of an idea what aliens are like, or whether someone is representing them correctly or incorrectly.


. . .or whether, in fact, such things even exist.

Say, did we ever figure out how many angels can dance on the head of a common pin?

@Lustig Andrei,
I have... intelligently design all mankind's gods as aliens from anywhere or no where.. accept the most recent Christian one... he's from somewhere or the other.

Hey has anybody here had a close encounter with a UFO or whatever, or to put it more excitingly- Has anybody here been 'Taken'?
I had an experience while camping alone at night in a remote field but I don't know if it was just a dream.
The only possible "evidence" was a bruise on my shin next morning as if they'd extracted bone marrow for my DNA, what cheek!
Was I Taken? I just don't know.
I've posted the full account in UFO Research websites, dramatically entitled "The Spalding Incident"..Smile

Most scientific types keep an open mind on this and speculate what we might find within certain ranges based on our own experience and our knowledge of natural environments and biological evolution. But we don't have enough information currently to know within a reasonable range.

Also the potential range of alien life is huge, ranging from virus/Bacteria-like to super-technological. Based on the history of our biosphere I would expect that 99.9% of all life in the Universe would be simple bacteria-like in some way, with rare pockets of multi-cellular and ever rarer pockets of technological expertise.



I know exactly what aliens will be like. They will be just like us. Just like any animal wanting a decent life.

@JohnJonesCardiff,
You have a tendency to generalize to the point of uselessness.

Yes. Aliens will have relatives and they will be sentient.

They will all have the Christian Bible and celebrate Christmas and Thanksgiving.

@edgarblythe,
WE all know what aliens will be like - like any other life-form.

How is that statement useful. It's like saying "An alien will be alien".

What we want to know is what forms life can take.

WE already know what aliens are like. Do you imagine they could be different from any other animal? Then you've been watching too many pap movies.

All your ideas come from the entertainment media. Science is still debating and searching within our own Solar System for any signs of life.

They are searching for different life-forms on the earth. What makes you think life is somehow different if its off the earth?
Is anyone getting this? Or do we all believe that that aliens are either all nasty, all nice or something weird?

Ah.
Light dawns.
We are "earthcentric".
That's the word I was looking for.
The alien prejudice is "earthcentrism".
- hey fellah! are you an "earthcentrist"?

If those are examples of your thoughts on this matter then it's apparent that your thoughts are extremely limited in scope. Most science minded people are WAY beyond this and are playing in a different league.

Thanks for not understanding that sentence, and not looking at the others. I must say, things have improved.

I'm sorry if I misunderstood. Your writing style certainly doesn't make things easy.

I don't know , and neither do you. So making a simple assertion based upon reading AMAZING STORIES is silly.

I can say that exolife is Silicon based and could be right or wrong. We just don't know. SO lets look and try to find out.K?
