NASA now believes there are 40 billion Earth-like planets in the Milky Way alone. (Source linked) Since there are 100 billion galaxies in the observable universe, it's more than likely were not alone in the universe.
Look up Carl Sagan, and the Drake equation. The odds are very high that life exists somewhere in our galaxy.
Extraterrestrial life, even intelligent extraterrestrial life.
Law of biogenesis
Totally agree. Mormon doctrine says we're one of many of planets God's children.
The odds that there is other intelligent life in our galaxy is infinitesimal.
There are so many variables to be met for intelligent life to develop that it's quite possible that we are alone.
Yes, it is insanely small likelihood for life to form, but if the universe is truly intimate then it's not only possible that life exists, but a statistical certainty.
No one said intelligent :P
Right. I'm speaking of intelligent life and it is not a statistical certainty that it exists.
There's more planets now then we have named our highest numbers. That's just in the observable universe with our space telescopes.
It's likely there's intelligent life.
It's more unlikely than one might think.
Look up the Drake equation.
I'm familiar with the Drake Equation stating that intelligent life should be frequent as well as the Fermi Paradox stating, if so, where is it? Did you watch the reference?
We've showed countless times if we encountered life on other planets that were way behind technologically, we wouldn't talk to them; just observe and learn without interfering in their evolution. Out of sight out of mind.
The Fermi paradox is fairly easily addressed, wife is been on this planet for roughly 3,000,000,000 years or so, only about 50 or so years ago we develop the technology for radio communication, so we have to be lucky enough to catch another planet
Your wife is old.
With the capabilities of radiocommunication same as ours or that we can understand. And because we don't know how long civilizations with radiocommunication last, we don't know how small of a possibility that it is to actually catch a civilization
With the capabilities of radiocommunication.
This is why I believe the idea that we'll never break the light speed barrier is the most tragic thing about our existence. There's just so much out there to see and learn about!
I think it's nearly certain we are not alone. But, are we close enough to each other for it to matter or even as to be detectable by each other?
I bet god lives on one of them.
If he's God, all of them.
Of corse you dingus it's called Kolob
In Jan 2015 we found the most earth-like yet discovered planet: en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kepler-438b
There are more stars in our galaxy than there are boobs on the internet. –The Internet or Someone on the Internet
But, is there more stars than there are cat pictures on the Internet? Hmmm...
