I saw what could only be a ship two different times.

Once in a village in Mexico and another driving in the desert from Tucson to San Diego.

Law of large numbers. Also, we've found some evidence of microbacterial life within our own Solar System, never mind any of the other infinite galaxies out there.

This.

I believe somewhere else, there is intelligent life in the universe... and it's not like just one other species too. Given the amount of galaxies, stars, solar systems... I think there are quite a few anomalies (like Earth) out there.

I do however don't believe we've been visited by any aliens.

I wish Mars had an atmosphere and large quantities water btw. Imagine humanity having the ability to inhabit two worlds. Would save our species from a world killer too.

The reason they don't contact us is because they have seen reruns of "Friends".

Life = yes.

Intelligent life = Can't answer. We do not have a "universal" mathematical definition for "intelligence" yet.

We actually don't even have a definition of "intelligence" yet, at least in the sense of "intelligent life".

Like everyone's said, it's a numbers game. There are billions of stars in our galaxy and billions upon billions of galaxies in the known universe.

Didnt you guys watch History Channel program? All the ancient cultures had aliens visit them. Best part was some guy named George with some funky ass hair.

The numbers say it's likely. But, the numbers also say it's just short of impossible they could have visited Earth given the distances between galaxies.

That's what always blows my mind I guess; there very likely are other advanced civilizations out there, but the odds of us ever connecting are around nil. Here's guessing they're just as prone to killing one another/****ing things up as we are.

I really wish this poll was public... that way we know who the retard is, if anyone is thick headed enough to think we're not alone in the universe.

Here's a fairly interesting website discussing discovering planets capable of supporting life similar to that on Earth.

There was a bright light low on the horizon that followed us for several minutes then just zipped away at an unworldly speed. We were somewhere outside of Quartizite AZ.

Wow,
I expected alot more No's at this point. I also would say that Aliens exist and I have been debating with my wife about this. Her belief in religion tends to make her a non believer in aliens. I however believe that we are visited frequently by various species. The part that is hard to argue is the great distances they would have to travel at super speeds to get here.

I think it is tough to argue with all the "sightings" that happen around the world each year. I think there is to many respectable people that claim to have saw ships to ignore. Nasa Astronauts, Air Force Pilots, etc... who risk credibility within the govt.

The problem is getting to there.

Light speed or some sort of super speed travel isn't possible for humans due to radioactive nanoparticles which are incapable of being blocked. When going at high speeds in space the body would be plummeted with high volumes of it and you'd die.

Some of the UFO stuff on the history channel is pretty interesting. The Ancient stuff they are doing now is pretty cool to see. It makes you think differently about the pyramids, stonehenge, and alot of other crazy stuff we have on this earth that doesn't appear to be man made.

I've heard three UFO stories from three different friends (none of them know eachother) that have been told to me with such force and conviction of belief - and consistency, that I can't help but wonder. I've never seen anything of the sort. But each time I ask any of these three different guys to tell their story, I get the same consistent story without any change to the details, and them telling it as though they're reliving the event from their memories.

No doubt there are aliens. There is even a possibility that we are descendants of aliens(watch ancient aliens on the history channel, very cool series) even though I do not think it is true.

However, I do not think humans will ever encounter other intelligent life anytime soon, just because of how long it takes to travel between, star systems, galaxies etc.

I've had 2 separate occasions where I have seen a bright light in the sky that seemed to be following me while driving at night in the mountains. They appeared to be the size of a large bright star but much closer then took off in an instant like Baja mentioned. Made the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Not necessarily ready to say they were UFO's but creeped me out both times.
