Do you think there is other intelligent life in the Universe?
 
I am taking a class that requires me to seek people's opinion on this. So,do you think that there is intelligent life in the universe? Give your reasons for and against.

Probably. There's nothing ruling it out, and the universe is a big place.

Absolutely. Drake's Equation:

Yes, a tentative yes. The universe is a big place.

POPULATION OF UNIVERSE : None.

It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in it. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination.

jyossarian 02-24-06 04:53 PM

Ahh be quiet. You don't exist, remember? Your the product of a deranged imagination.

Katrogen 02-24-06 04:56 PM

Actually, you're dodging the question.

"Do you think there is other intelligent life in the Universe?"

If it had been worded,
"Do you know there is other intelligent life in the Universe?"
then your reasoning would have been sound. ;)

EJ123 02-24-06 05:03 PM

I think there is too.

I think there is intellegent life in the universe.

I sometimes wonder if there is intellegent life on earth when I listen to some sportscasters and watche some television commercials. . .

I don't think there could be. Small chance of it. :p

TRaffic Jammer 02-24-06 05:21 PM

I don't think there is any here on earth but I do think there is some elsewhere.

sunninho 02-24-06 05:27 PM

So, Katrogen is the lone dessenter here. He must know more than we do, so that proves Traffic Jammer's point ^^ :p

TRaffic Jammer 02-24-06 05:28 PM

I watch the news....there is NO intelligence here on this marble.

TRaffic Jammer 02-24-06 05:35 PM

Of should we call you Ford Prefect?

jyossarian 02-24-06 05:54 PM

He who denies the obvious is hiding something, ergo, Katrogen's from another planet and doesn't want us to know about it.

HereNT 02-24-06 05:59 PM

If you take the word 'other' out of the question, I'd answer yes, but I don't put us in there with intelligent species.

TexasGuy 02-24-06 06:01 PM

I voted yes, but the only way this intelligent life will have anything to do with us is if they helped engineer our planet and have to step in before we blow ourselves off of the face of the planet with nuclear weapons, and thus ruining reality TV show.

Otherwise they will stay as far away from us as possible.
