I don't believe that there are advanced civilisations of extraterrestrial life, capable of intergalactic travel, as portrayed in science fiction. But I find it hard to say that in the the vast expanse of the universe, made up of countless galaxies, stars and planets, the only living organisms in existence reside on one insignificant piece of rock. So, I do believe that somewhere out there, life, if even only on a microbial level, must be present somewhere other than earth.

I sort of believe and and sort of don't because the universe is too big, too vast for there to be only one form of life. What form that life will take is entirely unknown. But I have my doubts.

My view is that out of the trillions of stars and galaxies out there, our planet can't be the only one with intelligent life. Even in our solar system, we have traces of water on mars and the moon of Jupter, Europa I believe is solid ice, and under that is water. We have already discovered planets with surface water, and some planets that are almost identical to earth, and these are just in the parts of the galaxies that we have the technology to see from such a distance.

Scientists have estimated that there will be around 20 planets, anywhere in the universe that have intelligent life on them. Of course this is an estimate, but it does not seem very far fetched to me as we have already discovered planets that are almost identical to earth, and we have barely even explored or seen space yet.

If we ever do find life, whether it comes to us, or we find it, it will be NOTHING like we imagine. Species that are able to live in the extremes, etc. Although science is not even close to finding out ways to travel at fast speeds to reach these planets, and chances are, it wont even be in the next 500 years, I still believe we will find life someday, intelligent or not.

I believe that there is other life in the universe. The universe is huge and if earth can support life so can other planets,and if there is no other life in the universe then I am sure that somewhere life did once exisit

I believe there is life out there, whether it is intelligent or not is another ball game.

Seeing how insignificantly small our rock in the void is, and how many other rocks there are out there - there is all but the chance.

There has even been suggestions/hints of lifeforms on other planets within our own solar system. Such as the mysterious brown cross-hatching on Europa (could be asteriod trails, could be the vast collection of microorganisms). The production of methane on mars (could be organisims producing it underground (75% of earths organisims live under the surface, in harsh toxic climates), or it could be natural production via volcanic activity etc.). Only time can truely tell (and investments in exploration).

Well it's hard to be certain considering they've already found other galaxys within ours through their telescopes. Theres supposed to be thousands of more of them and millions of suns which would be to the aid of other planets. Maybe there are other life-forms out there (Mostly Cells and bacteria) but there could be creatures also. Probably not as advanced as displayed in movies.

In my opinion, there has to be life somewhere out there -
It may be the same as us, less advanced, or more advanced - Probably all three.

There are millions of stars just in our small Milky Way Galaxy, in which we've found over 1,100 "Life" planets - Plants that are within range of their stars to have the climate for life.
That just in our small Galaxy.

We have photographed over 600,000 other galaxies, all with hundreds of billions of stars in them, all with trillions or more planets.

There is no way that Earth is the only planet in all of those numbers to have life on it.

I'm sure that there's life out there
and by life, I mean advanced civilisations of extraterrestrial life (to use javezz' words)

the thought that we'd be the only 'civilisation' in this entire universe... I highly doubt that'd be true
looking at the incomprehensible size of the universe, I'm sure there's more out there

it's however not certain that we'll be making contact with any other living extraterrestrial species out there, but it's definately there

Scientists have actually discovered another 'Earth', (relatively) close to Earth. It has water, a sun, solar system, land, trees, the same gas levels as a neutral Earth.

So if they can actually find one, imagine all they can't reach.

I personally believe that there IS an extra-terrestrial force out there, however minuscule.

It's pretty amazing that there is currently life on this planet, in my opinion. It's a combination of so many improbable things - our distance from the sun in the 'goldilocks zone', the presence of liquid water, the coming together of molecules to form the first 'living' organisms etc. - and the fact that everything hasn't been completely wiped out by a giant asteroid or some such thing before now. I mean, it's pretty impressive that I'm sitting here and typing this at all. :P

That being said, I think the universe is just so vast - with an incomprehensible amount of planets, I find it hard to believe that there isn't other life out there somewhere. With the vastnesses of our universe, these conditions for the development of life must have come about in other places as well - no matter how improbable they are.

It's hard to say what form it might take - I don't personally believe it will be anything like our current conceptions are, or what is mostly shown on the media nowdays (ie. a human with a wierd haircut wearing lycra :P), but with the size of the universe, I would have thought that there would be a range of different life out there. Perhaps it's just single celled organisms, or perhaps there's something more advance - or even whole civilisations. With the different conditions each planet would have - light levels, gravity, atmosphere, I'm sure organisms would evolve and adapt to end up like something we'd never imagine.

if there is extraterrestrial life, it's probably going to look more like insects (although that's what I've heard...)

I tend to agree with people who say the universe is too big to assume that we're the only inhabited planet.
Then again, because the universe is so big, I don't think searching for life elsewhere is ever really going to be productive. I've thought about it and decided it doesn't matter whether or not I believe in extraterrestrial life because it has absolutely no bearing on how I live my day-to-day life.

Of course there's life out there, I'd say there's a 100% chance there is or was at one time other life in the universe. We've discovered and continue to discover species on our own planet that live in environments we never thought possible for life, organisms that feed in ways we didn't think were possible. The problem with searching for life is we only know the conditions that occurred on our own planet. Just because we need this temperature to survive doesn't mean other organisms that evolved and developed on other rocks do.

Considering the vast age and size of the universe, I'd say it's completely likely and probable that planets have fostered life that evolved into advanced creatures like humanity, created advanced civilizations just like humanity, and was then completely wiped from existence just like humanity one day will be.

Imagine in 6 billion years, 1 billion years after our sun engulfs the planet and ends humanity's legacy (if we even survive that long) there could be advanced creatures on the other side of the galaxy pondering these same questions, creatures that just 6 billion years ago were single-celled organisms, beginning the great dance of life just as we did, 4 billion years ago.
