Us vs Everything Else

I believe in Aliens. It is scientifically proven that there is a world outside of our world. A universe outside of our universe.

In a sense, we are just a grain of sand in the whole wide universe. Earth is a grain of sand, like a grain of sand on a beach, in a universe.

I was just told this by an astronomy tech. Someone who studied all astronomy.

Others thoughts?

A universe outside of our universe?

I am not so sure about that one, that one is a risky bit because it could infer an absolute reference point, and relativity does not like that. On the plus side I guess that superluminal travel would be valid in such a system.

But as far as extrasolar planets, we have observed them and in the future our ability to detect them will grow.

I think that in all the vastness of space and with all the permutations of planets and variables it is most possible that life has started elsewhere and that it is somewhat possible that sentient life forms have evolved (remember however that in the history of life on earth it has taken billions of years of false starts, mass extinctions and change for mankind to come into being. There is no reason to assume that sentient life is a cosmic inevitability.

In all honestly, what I know about physics would fit on the back of a postage stamp, but....what scientific proof are you referring to?

I don't think it matters to the aliens whether we 'believe' in them or not. As a-wanderer said, the sheer number of solar systems orbiting other stars would make it somewhat likely, but there are millions of galaxies out there, so 'contact' is on the other hand, far from inevitable (in my opinion).

FUCK! I DON'T KNOW!

I don't give a shit whether or not the aliens think we believe in them or not.

They do exist.

That's all I know. And truthfully, I've seen more proof of them more than ghosts.

Well if you're talking about other planets, then you're obviously right. If you're talking about sentient life on other planets, then you don't know what you're talking about. There is no scientific proof of anything one way or another.

To say there's scientific proof of this (either pro or con) shows ignorance of science.

Hell, if you want to scale it and say the universe is the size of your average beach, we're technically smaller than a quark (which are the particles that make up protons, neutrons, and electrons, which in turn make up the atoms).

Well then you'd better tell your friend to go ask for the money back on his degree if he's telling you there's scientific proof of sentient life on other planets and that science has proven the existence of alternate universes.

So you're basing your conviction that aliens exist on some anecdotal "proof"? That's quite a step down from the "scientific proof" you were touting earlier.

I think it's quite possible there's other life forms out there somewhere. With the galaxy being as vast as it is, to assume we're the only living things out there would be pretty silly, I'd think.

That said, however, I've not really seen much hardcore evidence for proof of their existence. I just personally think it's highly plausible, is all.

I meant Area 51, but said Studio 54...because I have no clue regarding aliens.

I didn't say there was scientific proof that there are Aliens. I meant scientific proof that there are more planets out there beyond Pluto.

You're right, I am ignorant of science and astrology- I never said I knew anything in the first place. You're taking someone who said Studio 54 is where the aliens were seriously. Hahaha.

So what I was asking if, by chance, there was a student out there who is studying science or astrology to answer my question. Or argue that we are the only living planet in this world. That's all.

I enjoyed the Studio 54 reference. I was imagining an alien party there.
