Personally I dont believe so, but I guess it can be possible. The bible does not say one way or another that there is or isn't. If we were to find out that there is I dont think it would disprove the bible at all.

i think people should worry more about life on planet earth and less about life elsewhere, but i feel feel the same way about our country and the rest of the planet too.

Didn't you see Signs? They're out to get us. I'm plenty worried.

I think it's pretty close-minded to think that this planet is the only place in this whole vast universe that has life on it.

I think it is pretty close-minded to think others are close-minded because they disagree with you.

How's that? I'm not saying it because you disagree, my opinion is that I think it's a close-minded thought. I'm not saying there's necessarily another race like humans. I believe God created us and only us in His image. I'm just not sold on the idea that in this whole infinate universe, there isn't any form of life anywhere else but on this planet.

I do not believe that there is life elsewhere.

As far as closemindedness goes; to be closeminded simply means that you accept no outside ideas, theories, what have you, other than your own. Being openminded means that you accept new information, define it, compare the new information against existing evidence, process possible solutions, analyze the product of each solution, then come up with a final subjective answer. Therefore, if a person chooses to deny the existence of alien life, it does not mean they should be automatically labeled as closeminded. It just means that according to what they accept as truth, alien life does not fit the model of their understanding.

In my case I don't accept alien life for two reasons:

1. I believe it is clear in scripture that God created this earth special and specific for life.

2. I believe that the existence of alien life also requires a person to accept Darwinian-Evolution as fact. (The only other solution to this would be that God created life elsewhere, which is address in problem 1.)


BTW, the universe is most definately finite.

What about bacteria? It's a living thing. I'm not talking about another race that can think for itself beyond instinct. I'm just talking about life.

Bacteria is not alive, technically speaking. But no, I do not believe it is elsewhere either.
