Of course we're not alone, but I still like reading things like this. :) The sheer vastness of everything amazes me.

 I know, but it always makes me laugh when people say why we're the only planet capable of making life, or more specifically, the reasons they give

That is a brilliant quote. 

I don't think anyone can tell if we're alone or not for sure, insisting that we are or the opposite is a conversation that leads to nowhere.

It's something that goes in circles and circles - one person can say yes, another can say no

At the moment there is nothing that categorically proves either way is scientifically correct, but I don't think we're far off from discovering the truth

Probably not the exact shape, no

 

But it helps to give an idea of the magnitude of how big 100 billion planets are, I guess

Well Pluto is a tiny tiny planet, so I'm sure there's smaller planets orbiting around somewhere

I've always thought there's no way we can be the only lifeforms. The universe is just too big for that. I don't think that we will ever have any "alien contact" though, at least in my lifetime, because we don't have the technology for that. Plus, who knows if they're intelligent lifeforms or not? There could a planet full of amoebas for all we know. There's also the possibility that life on other planets isn't like life on earth at all so we wouldn't really know anything about aliens if we wanted to contact them. 

 

Can I point out that I hate it when movies have aliens speaking English? Not everyone on earth even speaks English, why do you think extra terrestrials will?

I'd like to hear what an alien sounds like - could be random beeps and bumps for all we know

It's not really a planet, it's a dwarf planet.

Exactly, but to some people it is a planet, and I thought it was officially recognised as a planet in the 1930's when it was discovered

The chances of there not being intelligent life elsewhere in the galaxy is mind-numbingly low. In our own solar system alone, out of 7 other planets, one has exhibited signs of life. I'm more surprised we haven't discovered any signs of life beyond Mars.

because there isn't enough warmth for water to assume a liquid state in which it would need to be for any kind of organic life to be had. so ummmm, not surprised

What freaks me out the most is that we know more about outer space than we know about the deepest oceans here on Earth.  Now THAT is alarming.

If there is intelligent life out there I doubt we'll find them in my lifetime, which makes me very jealous of the generation who are around for that moment (if it happens).

I'm jealous too. I just know there's a blue amazonian tall alien gal waiting for me to sweep her off her, whatever she has

Which of course is proven by you using the less formal form of "because" and leaving out the full stop. :sherlock:

 

No but seriously I have always believed in other life somewhere.

I mean come on, of course it won't be typical green marsians with antennas on their heads, but somehow, somewhere there has to be something.

I hope we never find life on another planet and vice versa. Did you see what the Europeans did to Native American tribes when they discovered a "New Worldd"???
