The hunt for alien life just made a pretty big breakthrough.

To think that Arthur C Clark suggested that life may exist on Europa in the early 1980s so when they find anything I hope he is remembered. Still, I get to see Europa every night I have a clear sky, still all I see is a tiny little dot and it would be nice to think there is something alive there.

"Know thou that every fixed star hath its own planets, and every planet its own creatures, whose number no man can compute."

~ Baha'u'llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, p. 162
I am sure of it.

Why should we be the only creatures in our universe?

I hope that life does exist in some other part of the universe...what makes Earth so special? We are too concerned with being the superior intelligence. It would serve us right to be demoted to a lower status!!!!

It would be neat especially if the have a better medical insurance plan than we do.

I believe live exists in many forms in billions of places in the Universe.

It is difficult to believe that Earth is the only place in this vast galaxy with life. Science is fascinating.

I don't doubt for a minute that there must be life somewhere else in the Universe, but spending countless dollars searching for it seems really STUPID when there is so much we MUST do to fix what humans have destroyed on our own AMAZING planet.

It would be wonderful. to find life forms elsewhere, might just end our human conceit about exceptionalism; help us join together as a single family. I can dream, can't I? Evanola, I am, obviously, with you on this.
But, Harston, I think that bit about life on every planet is a bit over the top.

You've inspired some interesting and supportive comments here, Freya, as usual~ From the read, the percentage of our world is open to life elsewhere. I am in that percentage. [in the movie 'Contact' the phrase is made: Otherwise it seems like a great waste of space] I have no conflict of ideology between the search for truth on the physical plane, and the invisible (to the human eye) cosmos. How we treat one another is relevant in all cases.

Thanks, Freya, and Happy New Year to All in 2014!

Noted. Thanks for posting, Freya. So interesting! To believe we humans are the only "life" or civilization existing in this universe is egotistical. Just who do we think we are? Some comment that it's foolish to waste our money searching for life elsewhere. But, this could actually be a great boon to the economy. I commented earlier that when Kennedy said we were going to the moon, this opened up a whole new wonderful economy.....to say nothing of all the great science & technology we created.
