Is There Intelligent Life Out There Somewhere?

Astronomers Find a Whopping 32 New Planets

WASHINGTON — European astronomers have found 32 new planets outside our solar system, adding evidence to the theory that the universe has many places where life could develop.

Scientists using the European Southern Observatory telescope didn't find any planets quite the size of Earth or any that seemed habitable or even unusual. But their announcement increased the number of planets discovered outside the solar system to more than 400.

I personally find this news promising. The more new planets we find, the more we have a chance of finding intelligent life somewhere in the Universe. Seeing there is none here on Earth, it would be refreshing to find it somewhere.

Seriously though, what are your thoughts? Is there other life in the Universe? Is this life intelligent? More intelligent than us? Or, are we alone?

Curious as to what others think.

I agree with Gramma.

That said, the Lord has His own plans. He can create as He pleases.

I have the tendancy to think there is life in the Universe outside of Earth. I don't think this is incompatible with Christianity. A God that is omnipotent can create life in more than one place. As far as whether it's intelligent or not, that's debateable. We haven't been able to accomplish that here ;)

Are they more intelligent than us? Well, who elected Pelosi, Frank, Dodd, Kennedy, Kerry, and Obama?

The prosecution rests, your honor.

Would be nice if they could find a habitable one, maybe we conservatives could all shove off from here and leave all the leftists and socialist parasites to leech off each other back here.
