Do you believe in extraterrestrial life?

I know I do!

Just a fun topic I enjoy.

Does it matter if there is extraterrestrial life?

Would this change the way you look at this world?

If there was extraterrestrial life without a doubt, maybe instead of having pride in our own separate countries, we would have pride as a planet together as one, or even take pride in our galaxy.

    Dec 16 2012: I do believe in extraterrestrial life. The law of probability is overwhelming given the number of worlds that exist in the universe.

    I am skeptical that extraterrestrial life has ever visited this planet, although I am open to the possibility. I doubt that it could have come here in physical form if it has come at all. I have had spiritual experiences and I believe that there are other dimensions that we have not explored. They exist outside of the realm of our physical senses.

    I believe that our belief about ourselves would be challenged if we discovered life exists elsewhere, hopefully in a good way.

    I don't know about the pride thing. But I believe that we would come to the realization that there is so much more for us to learn. It would be a very humbling experience to me.
