Quote: Dogomush said: And even if this planet did produce an intelligent being capable of solving puzzles ten times faster than humans, evolution likely wouldn't have complimented its intellect with tool-using hands or the urge to fly into space. We and our concept of vehicular space travel rose out of unique and no longer existing conditions somewhere in east Africa, and we aren't likely to find anything similar on other planets.
Now lets think of the reason WHY they wanted to travel into space..
At night, when they stars came out, they'd ponder what they were. They'd see the moon, and after a while they'd notice that some of the bright dots are moving.
More complex civilizations took it further.
I'm sure, if there was another planet similar to Earth in another galaxy, lets say, the intelligent organism that takes rise there surely will see the stars at night. What questions do you think it would as itself?
I don't see how you can honestly look at the vastness of the Universe and not know that there's a rather large chance of life being out there. We're just one star of.. How many?
70,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 That's what I'm getting, if not millions more.
Someone had a thread a little back saying something along the lines of -Chances of life emerging in the universe, 100%, since we are here- Which i find to be an incredibly intelligent sentence. So there has to be a good chance that in this hugely vast universe there has been something similar. especially when you look at the massive diversity of life on this planet over its existence. Our planet having all of these different species of life, i feel, is alone enough evidence to say that there is other life out in the universe. I can see how the life on our planet wouldn't make a difference in the arguement if we had maybe ourselves, like two species of deer, 2-3 types of veggies,etc. and we were all the same color, eye shade, structuraly similar,etc. but the diversity is just WAY too great for me.
