This could also be placed in the philosophy section but I figured this would be a more sensible spot. ANYWAYS... I just went through some of my old movies and found Contact and it made me think... it would be an awful waste of space if there were no other planets with intelligent life. Not even intelligent life but life in general. The Universe is huge. Bigger than anyone could ever imagine. And yet, it seems as if we are alone in it. Sure, there may be a God. There may be a Heaven too. So I guess that calms that fear a little...for some people. There are those that believe in science. They believe there is no God, there is no heaven. What about when these people feel alone? Do they turn to the idea that there is another planet, somewhere, with people on it (or little green men, whatever tickles your fancy)? There are scientific aspects that make me think there must be life on other planets. At least the way I have interpreted the information...of course I always seem to throw personal opinion into things when it really should just be based on facts. There are signs on planets in our very own solar system that say there might have been some sort of life there at one point. Signs that water was once there, maybe even plants. Maybe more than just that. It could be that our timing in the grand scheme of things was just bad, and we may never know. I think it's something worth pursuing in the world of scientific theory. It's a mixed thought really. Did God just create us? Did the Universe create other life besides us? Are we alone? Is the universe a waste of space? What do you think about it?
