There is no reason whatsoever to think alien/extraterrestrial life exists, amirite?

The voters have decided that Cheytuflya is right! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.

What is worse, not being alone, or being alone? Chances are too small that we are alone. There is plenty of reason.

I hate when people try to say it's "statistically" or "mathematically" probable because of the billions of galaxies or whatever. When you have population of billions and the thing you're studying has been found only once in this billions, that's not "probable." That's the opposite of how probability works.

@LookAnAltAccount I hate when people try to say it's "statistically" or "mathematically" probable because of the billions of galaxies...

How did you determine those planets were lifeless when humans have never been able to reach any star but our own?

Proxima Centari is the closest star and its still light years away, we can't tell what other planets do or do not have life because we are physically unable to observe them in that level of detail.

Do you think asteroid belts exist in other solar systems? They are far too dispersed to notice around other stars, but to completely deny their existence just because we don't have the techonology to properly observe is ludicrous.

There's infinite planets in infinite star systems. No way we're the only intelligent life

@1440807101 OP didn't say anything about visiting earth.

There is this myth that governments have confirmed that aliens exist.

The people who say that, mean aliens have came to Earth.

I replied to someone saying life likely exists somewhere.

By saying thats true, but it doesn't mean any could/would come here.

@fourexhale That's a lot of reading between the lines.

Apparently for some people it's too much

@Eastern-Spot2023 Apparently for some people it's too much

It is indeed too much reading between the lines lol (that was my point).

Yeah... I got that

You completely missed mine.

And pretty sure you're going to keep missing it

@Mytokhondria Yeah... I got that You completely missed mine. And pretty sure you're going to keep missing it

I assumed you rpoint was that I couldn't and didn't miss your intial thing in the first place?

You're comparing believing a specific creature (Big Foot or the Abominable Snowman) exists on Earth to believing that any living creature exists in our vast universe. They're very different.

The myth of governments confirming aliens exist is an ATC thing. The government has, strictly speaking, confirmed reports of UFOs. This is an Air traffic control thing that does not mean 'we saw aliens', it means 'we don't know what we saw'. They did so to allow for pilots and traffic controllers to report UFOs without being made fun of.

The likelihood that aliens exist is irrelevant considering how far away they would live and they likely wouldn't make it here fast enough to be worth the trip.

Ther is also no reason to think that it does not exist. That is why it is a theory. Probably true, but can not be proven without a doubt.

The chance is big someone in another galaxy has the same unpopular opinion you do at this very moment

It's pretty selfish to think you are the only form of intelligent life, and if one species found a way, they would have absolutely no interest in a world where people kill eachother over whats in a book or just because they want to

@Manualham It's pretty selfish to think you are the only form of intelligent life, and if one species found a way, they would...

It's pretty presumptive to think you aren't the only form of "Intelligent" life. Especially with no evidence either way. We can theorize all we want, but to say it's selfish to for others to not believe your theory if choice is itself pretty selfish.

Larny2019s avatar Larny2019 Yeah You Are +5Reply
@Iapetus-11 Presumptuous maybe, but I'm not quite sure how that's 'selfish'.

It's not, people like this just think they're pet beliefs are the only true answer.

Effectlive97s avatar Effectlive97 Yeah You Are +1Reply

they not only exist, they are also our Gods. they created the egyptian pyramids and every other artifact/amazing thing on this earth. some sculptures are so incredibly big and heavy that it would have been impossible for humans especially so long ago to have the equipment to create them. the things they created that seem to make no sense, align with the stars and planets so perfectly it's almost scary. no human can do that.
this is the most close minded thing i've ever heard. but hey, i do believe it's an unpopular opinion

Larny2019s avatar Larny2019 Yeah You Are +2Reply

If I remember right, they believe there are more planets than grains of sand on every beach in the world. The chance that one of those had life on it at one point or currently has life on it is pretty high.

There are, at a conservative estimate, one billion billion planets in the universe. Of those that are sufficiently observable, we know of one planet that has life. It would be wildly presumptive to believe that earth is the only planet out of a billion billion planets that has life.

Cause in all the billions of galaxies filled with billions of planets in all the Universe....you honestly think we're the only life that exists???? OK

I'm sure they exist. Question is if they can be called intelligent life.

It all depends on what size and what activities accomplished you allow yourself to label something as a lifeform because of. It's foolish to think something as small a single celled lifeform doesn't exist elsewhere we've already discovered and discussed it not only because we traveled to space but because things have traveled here in "rock" form with things living or fossilized inside of it

Humans evolved on earth from single called life, which means it is 100% possible. There is no reason to NOT think there is life out there knowing what we know about how big the universe is

Without being 100% sure of the conditions. We're is no way to make any claims of probability or possiblity.

Big foot would need enough space to breed and exist without being discovered, which is pretty much impossible.

"Aliens" don't need to be complex. A small colony of bacteria-like things could pop up on another planet and that would be more than enough

The premise of cryptids is that special animals are hiding/being hidden

The premise of extraterrestrials is that we are not special animals. Given how vast the universe is with billions upon billions of other planets there's a very high chance whatever phenomena created us has occurred before.

Aliens are a bit like how we treated blackholes before that picture of one came out, while we cannot observe directly based on surrounding factors there is a high chance they exist.

Not to mention, Bigfoot has to hide from humans on human's own planet. Extraterrestials have the entire universe to 'hide' from us while doing their own thing.

Basically, Bigfoot is limited to a very small space in which they have to breed, and 'hide' from human discovery.

With how large the universe is, there could be millions of alien species (sapient, not just microbial life) out there, living their own lives, wondering if there is 'life out there'. The chances of them finding another alien species is extremely small, just like ours is.

Shiny244s avatar Shiny244 Yeah You Are +2Reply

Unpopular opinion indeed

Of course they exist, it would be naive to think otherwise. Just read Wiki about the Roswell incident.

The Truth is Out There

SnooStoriess avatar SnooStories Yeah You Are 0Reply

I mean it's already proven that microbial life exists outside our planet so technically you're already wrong.

whether you believe in other life forms or not,the government has completely controlled the "alien" narrative and that narrative has been eaten up because people "want to believe".I personally do believe there are other life forms out there,but none of this little green man bs

Tanmoykayesens avatar Tanmoykayesen Yeah You Are 0Reply

The earth is pretty small. We'd have found bigfoot by now.

The universe is so unimaginably large that it's practically impossible for there to not be other intelligent life out there
