Do aliens exist?
There is a very simple answer to this question: "We don't know, but it's possible" No evidence for life has yet been found on any other planet except Earth. However, this does not eliminate the possibility of extraterrestrial life existing on planets we have never been to. Opinions on the prospects for such life are shown below. The only answer that is factually correct is "Maybe". It is impossible to prove the absence of something. Until evidence proving the existence of extraterrestrials is uncovered, the answer will remain closer to "possibly" than "probably". Many of the greatest minds in modern science today, such as the British Professor Brian Cox (labelled as a "modern Einstein") believe that with so many billions of galaxies existing across millions of universes, it is impossible for life elsewhere to NOT exist. They believe if Earth can exist in this galaxy, then there must be other Earth-like life-supporting planets in at least some of the other billions of galaxies out there. Additional Opinions by Contributors: First, when I say "aliens" I don't mean those spacefaring civilizations in science fiction that come to Earth and abduct you. They could exist, but it's all just fantastic science fiction with no proof. What I mean is life outside of Earth in general. I think it is almost impossible for extraterrestrial life not to exist. It doesn't matter if we never encounter them, it's more a matter of probability than anything else. Just think about these numbers: There are about 300 BILLION stars in the Milky Way Galaxy alone. A fraction of these stars are expected to have planets that could support life. That's still in the billions. There are between 100 and 300 BILLION galaxies in the known Universe, each galaxy containing billions, sometimes trillions, of stars. How can you possibly believe that there is NO chance of life arising on any one planet, orbiting any one star, in any one galaxy? Even if you believe that God directly created life on Earth, it would be extremely arrogant to believe that He created this unimaginably vast Universe just for us. Ultimately speaking, the answer is Yes; it is both philosophically and scientifically impossible for there not to be, given the infinite possibilities of Creation. However, "aliens" in the popular sense since World War II as being UFO people is quite another complex question. If you're earnestly interested in this, begin by reading all the works relative to the subject of UFOs by Dr. Jacques Vallee & by Dr. J. Allen Hynek. It is likely that there are aliens. There are so many infinite universes and planets and solar systems that there must be other intelligent life. We don't know for sure if they exist, and vice versa. My thoughts are that they are likely superior to us. If they have UFOs and can travel millions of light years to find us, they probably have superior technology. But, being ignorant, conceited homo sapiens, most of us would think of them as inferior beings. We probably shouldn't refer to them as aliens - they would probably consider us aliens. Some of us would be smart enough to recognize them as normal, thinking, living beings. Who knows? They may look just like us. Or they may be like the green aliens many of us draw. No one knows the facts, but there is at least a strong probability that other lifeforms exist in the universe. The usual argument for the non-existence of alien life is that none have openly contacted us here on Earth. Advanced civilizations might have good reasons for not doing so, or, as could happen with us, they may have reached a point where they gave up on space exploration. If so, they would have ceased to exist once their parent star went through its evolutionary cycle (The Main Sequence for most stars) and died; depending on their initial mass they either turn into a white dwarfs, red giants, or supernova. UFO's and eyewitness testimony notwithstanding, there is no positive evidence that the Earth is being visited, or has been visited, by intelligent extra-terrestrial aliens. This is a commonly used theme for science fiction because life elsewhere in the universe is strongly probable. Most likely there are other living creatures in the universe. There are something on the order of 200 million galaxies out there. So the probability exists that we are not unique and not alone. One important thing to consider is the vast distances between the stars. Even if there were an intelligent technical culture of organisms in our own Milky Way galaxy, it would take other technologically advanced creatures many years traveling at the speed of light to get to us. By the time they arrived here their own home planet would have aged so much that they would not have any relatives they could remember when they returned. About the only way we could be visited by extra-terrestrial beings is if they had the ability to manipulate both time and space. And the way to do that is with quantum physics. Then, maybe, our three dimensional world could be found among the million and traversed by going through the other dimensions. The current Superstring Theory suggests that there needs to be 10 dimensions plus time - the eleventh dimension. If you mean to ask "Are aliens real?" There may have been evidence of aliens ranging from as small as 2 inches to 20 feet. However, many also believe that this evidence may be false in a way. Thinking of how big this galaxy, all the other galaxies known to mankind, and others out there to discover we possibly can not believe that we are the only form of live overall. Although, this my opinion and for now my answer would be no. They would have to be because of all the other planets out there. If you're speaking of extra-terrestrials, only in theory. None have been discovered, communicated with, etc. at this present time. There are plenty of universe and there are great possibilities that aliens live one of the galaxies like Sagittarius dwarf galaxy. There are no aliens known to exist, just a bunch of anecdotes, and no matter how high you stack anecdotes, they never become evidence. We hope there is other life out there, and we consider it likely. But someone has to be the first form of intelligent life in the universe, and there is no evidence that it isn't us. While Hollywood has made a number of nifty films about aliens, no such movie constitutes scientific proof, even if it is claimed that it is "based on a true story." The most scientific and least controversial (I would say the true answer) is that there is almost certainly life out there. The odds of there not being life in the trillions of planets out there is infinitesimal. Is there life of comparable or greater intelligence than ours? Very possibly, perhaps even probably. Have they visited us? There is no proof they have, and the distances needed to overcome to visit us make it virtually impossible. Anybody who says they've invented faster than light travel needs to brush up on physics. Many people elevate aliens to a god-like stature, believing they have the power to overcome the laws of the universe, wipe the memories of vast numbers of people, and even move cities. Aliens do exist and they have been visiting this earth since the beginning of mankind. UFOs and extraterrestrial visitations have been reported all over the world. Even trained pilots and personnel in Air force have seen UFOs of alien origin in the sky. There is more then enough evidence to support their existence. If your still interested in the topic, check out some of these books: * Extraterrestrial Contact by Steven M. Greer I believe there are aliens out there somewhere and we just have to find them or wait until they find us. The concept of aliens and flying saucers is a fanciful imaginary product of the space age threat of nuclear annihilation. And believed by confused souls looking for friendus, since God's existence is cast into modern societal doubt. Look at this question from a Biblical point of view. If there are aliens already living somewhere in the universe, have they already subjected themselves to God's Sovereignty? If so, they would constitute proof that his way of ruling is the best way and there would have been no reason for God to put up with Satan, and permit the consequences of allowing man's rule to show it's ultimate failure. If aliens already exist in the universe, why did God need to send his firstborn only-begotten son as a ransom for what Adam lost? If the alien creatures of planet XYZ are faithful, then he would have handled matters very differently. After all, didn't he send his son also to prove Satan a liar? To prove that a perfect man can be obedient out of love? He sent his son because this planet earth has been the scene of universal issues: God's right to rule, and the integrity of ALL his creatures. Once the issues have been settled successfully, then I can see populating the universe. After all the earth is just the beginning. It would be pious of us not to believe that God only created earth and there are so many things yet to be discovered on earth (our oceans/space ... the last frontiers.) God does have a plan for us and how do we know it doesn't involve aliens? No one can answer this question for sure and perhaps it's meant to be this way for now. Cheap magazines and rags, also TV has made so many movies about monsters from outer space and aliens that are here to harm us. Now if an alien should appear God really is going to have to interfere to save it's life before people kill them off out of fear before learning anything about them. What about Area 51 (which still exists to this day!) The truth is not out there nor in the hearts of lost men The truth is the Bible, and the Bible tells us about all creation and about all life, and there are only 4 types of life on heaven or on earth. There is God the creator who created, 1) angels (demons are sinful angels, and Satan was the first demon) 2) plants (all plants, including trees, grass and whatnot) 3) animals, and 4) mankind, the crowning jewel of creation, the only creation formed in God's image, having 3 parts (body, soul, spirit) like God with the Trinity (Body/Christ, Soul/Father, and Spirit/Holy Spirit). The only aliens that interest me are the angels who are certainly welcome in all areas of my life, and the demons, who I pray to God to protect me from, especially Satan, though a verse or two keeps him away. There are probably an innumerable amount of different types of alien life forms in our universe and other universes. Some of the ones I know about are the Grays the Reptilians, the Pleiadians, and many more. You can find lists of around 100 discovered types on the good UFO/alien websites out there. The question isn't "are there aliens" just look at the number of stars in our galaxy alone ponder the number of earth like planets and your getting a very high chance that life is out there, just because life developed as it did on this planet doesn't mean life can't exist in different forms, so no the question isn't "are there aliens" but rather will we meet them or are they sentient. I believe that there are others out there either in solid or ethereal form, either way, I am not 'bothered'. I think the government are covering it up and we have aliens on this planet and they come in peace but they think they will kill us all but that is not true and is caused by the hype in movies. It is very possible that there are aliens although we still haven't got the technology to find out. There has been fossils found on other planets of plants but this was probably a few million years ago. Yes, but it is politically incorrect to call them aliens. They are undocumented. Statistically there almost has to be but there is no concrete evidence as of yet. People speculate there is a cover up for national security reasons. If you have an interest in the subject, read up on Roswell and Bob Lazar. he was a physicist at Area 51 who spoke out after catching the Government in the process of trying to kill him to silence him. Yes but they are a million Galaxy's away. The scientists are still not sure of it. yes, think about how big the universe is. it goes on forever, anyone will agree.if it does go on forever, there MUST be other life. The universe is a huge place. To deny the existence of aliens would be like saying everyone in the United States of America owns a dog. Not everybody owns a dog. However, this does not mean aliens are flying around making weird designs in cornfields or flying saucer shaped space vehicles, or even abducting people. Life most likely does exist in other parts of the universe, however. People have their believes but i think that alien really don't exist, some day we will find out but not today, so be there when they tell you.

How do alien birth pods grow?
Alien birthpods do not 'grow', they are an alien pod with a pregnant alien Mum in it, and sometimes 2 other babies (usually twins), and you help the alien give birth by gently squeezing her head or body ( depending if it comes out of the back or the head - you will know by the huge hole which opens up that the baby will pop out of) and gently pulling it out if it does not pop out. Sometimes it is embedded in the aliens head, so you might have to it off of the head. I hope this helped.

Did the government really find alien bodies?
they probably did , they're good at keeping secrets :/ From what we can tell, yes, at Roswell they did (the Air Force's current "cover" story is that Stalin rigged up and surgically mutilated a bunch of Russian dwarves to look like aliens, to scare the American people), - No , LITERALLY, this is their "current" story. The TR3B (terran reproduction 3B) - flying triangle Astra, made with billions of dollars of your black ops money, is our current best human spacecraft. It runs off a gravity Torus. It's a copy of Roswell technology. I heard the first one from the 1980's had rocket boosters, as we were still figuring out the propulsion elements. Pretty neat huh, for us little humans. Pitty the government won't tell us how it works. (2014-08-23) The "bunch of Russian dwarves" alleged to be the current government cover story for Roswell... really isn't. It's taken from a book on Area 51 by a journalist, a book that has been heavily criticised for its poor sources, sensationalism, numerous mistakes and lack of common sense. In reality, only in the mid-1990s did Roswell become widespread enough in popular culture that the government felt like addressing the incident, and its only "cover story" since then is that what crashed was a high-altitude balloon from a secret military program. As for the TR3B, you won't be surprised to learn that it only allegedly exists; there are purported video proofs, but with the amount of camera phones around and the ease of adding special effects to movies, single videos of UFOs over cities are no strong proofs.

What causes a person to be a sociopath?
Sociopathy/Psychopathy would be defined as a syndrome with strong behavioral features of impulsivity and fearlessness and a strong interpersonal domain comprised of aggressive social relations, manipulation, rebelliousness, self-centeredness, and a tendency to externalize blame. One twin study suggests that psychopathy has a strong genetic component. The study demonstrates that children with anti-social behavior can be classified into two groups: those who were also callous acquired their behavior by genetic influences, and those who were not callous acquired it from their environment "The amygdala is crucial for stimulus-reinforcement learning and responding to emotional expressions, particularly fearful expressions that, as reinforcers, are important initiators of stimulus-reinforcement learning. Moreover, the amygdala is involved in the formation of both stimulus-punishment and stimulus-reward associations. Individuals with psychopathy show impairment in stimulus-reinforcement learning (whether punishment or reward based)and responding to fearful and sad expressions. It is argued that this impairment drives much of the syndrome of psychopathy. There is a strong genetic link and much evidence to support the idea that psychopathy is passed down and is biological. Psychopaths don't have the same physiological responses to fear that constrain the behaviour of normal people, such as rapid heartbeat, sweating, dry mouth, trembling and muscle tension. Psychopaths don't have physiological responses to emotionally charged words such as "love" and "death" the way regular people do, suggesting that they process emotional stimuli differently. When one identical twin is psychopathic, the other is more likely to be psychopathic than those in the general population. Adoption studies indicate that children can inherit psychopathic traits from a psychopathic parent even when they are raised by different parents. When compared to non-psychopaths, differences have been found in a number of brain chemicals among psychopaths. They are often reported as having an evil stare, sometimes with eyes that appear black rather then colored

An alien is a stranger, sometimes coming from an extraterrestial body in space. From the thesaurus: A foriegner, non-citizen, outlander, outsider, traveler, traveller, au pair, deportee, exile, gringo, import, importee, metic, stranger, unknown, interloper, intruder, tresspasser, extraterrestrial, extraterrestrial being, or a hypothetical creature.

What is a googly?
A normal leg break spins from the leg to the off side, away from a right-handed batsman, a googly spins the other way, from off to leg, into a right-handed batsman and is distinct from an off break delivery. The bowler achieves this change of spin by bending the wrist sharply from the normal leg break delivery position. When the ball rolls out of the hand from the side near the little finger, as in a normal leg break, it emerges with clockwise spin from the bowler's point of view. A googly may also be achieved by bowling the ball as a conventional leg break, but spinning the ball further with the fingers just before it is released.

Are there good people living on earth?
NO! but what I mean is there is no good or bad people, just different situations..which bring out our good and bad sides essentially. Basically if we were to put a load of 'good' people into a hostile environment and tell them to fend for themselves they would very quickly become 'bad' or else carry on being good....but very dead... Answer ==new answer= We are inherently good. To be bad is learned behavior. By focusing on what is good in others, we see more good in ourselves. To look within to see more and more good is to seek first the kingdom of heaven. To those who have, more will be given. ANSWER this depends on what you mean by 'good' there are good people all over the place in the sense of people who are the following, who feel empathy, who are nice, who give to charities and maybe do charity work etc, and yes of course there are people like that. then consider good, what exactly is good, is it a fact or an opinion its more an opinion, as no-one is perfect all good people have done 'bad' things at some point, ie to take anger out on someone who doesn't deserve it is 'bad' good is not a fact because all people have different ideas of what is good and there is no set rules on being good the definition of good as in perfect, no- that doesn't exist no person is perfect, good people are capable of bad things just like so called 'bad' people 'good' is really society's expectation of what any individual must be, but society is judgmental and expects the impossible of human beings, of people, yet all the while judging everyone and everything no matter what they do or who they are. all you can do is think about what you consider to be good and try to be it yourself without expecting it of other people, because other people are not you, and other people will have their own description of what good is and will live by their own, not by yours. and certainly don't judge people nor yourself on societys adaptation of good, because you will definitely be disappointed if you expect what society expects, perfection. f4 Answer: Yes. I think they're poor people, because I think they've been taken advantage of, by others. But maybe they made bad decisions, resulting in poverty. I almost believe that nice people finish last, crooks finish first. But I know that to become rich usually requires lots of talent and/or brains, and ambition. ANSWER: Yes, but they won't talk to the rest of us anymore because we refuse to accept responsibility for our actions and keep expecting someone else to take care of our problems for us, so they all moved to Costa Rica and run car rental shops for the tourists. If you go to visit they will smile politely and rent you a car if your willing to pay but they absolutely refuse to discuss any idea of reconciliation. Answer Very few. Not the last time I visited
Asked in Space Aliens, Scientology
How much do Scientologists charge to exorcise a space alien?
There is no such thing as "exorcism of a space alien" in Scientology. This concept is a distortion of an auditing procedure that is used by some Scientologists at high levels of "Operating Thetan". The distortion is this - = It is not exorcism - It is not about Space Aliens - You cannot "pay" to get this procedure, as it is part of a larger course of study offered by the Church of Scientology that has many predecessor courses Operating Thetan is a course of spiritual study that begins after achieving "Clear". It typically takes several years to achieve Clear, though it is possible for some persons to complete this goal within a year. The costs of these courses and any desired "auditing" are published by the Church of Scientology, as well as by some independent practitioners. At each step, a person makes the individual choice to take the next course, and to decide for themselves how much auditing or other supporting courses they wish to take. Therefore, there is no "amount" that a person can "pay" to receive this or any other OT service. it must be achieved through study and practice. The only direct monetary costs are "fixed donations" (see below) for the Church's services and any books, audio sets, or videos purchased. There are many, many auditing procedures in Scientology, all with different procedures and results. The procedures chosen and the results from them vary widely by individual. If a person were to believe that their body was infested by space aliens and wanted to receive counseling for it, I'm sure they could find appropriate counselling for that. The Church of Scientology has a policy of "fair exchange", which means that people should pay a fair price for what they get. All churches charge fees or request donations for their services, as that is how they support their operations. As a matter of church policy, and in line with the founder's "Doctrine of Fair Exchange", the Church of Scientology implements the "fixed donation" policy. Part of the cost of the courses may be treated as a religious donation even though it is structured as a course fee. Alternate Answer Scientology scripture teaches humans are immortal spiritual beings called "thetans". Thetans were originally god-like entities existing in a non-physical environment. By various means thetans spiritually degraded and became dependent on physical bodies within a material universe. A long time ago billions of aliens, also thetans, were brought to Earth to solve an overpopulation problem in another galaxy. The aliens were killed and their spirits were gathered and psychologically manipulated to be confused. The confused alien thetans, known as "body thetans" or BTs, cluster around humans causing spiritual degradation of the human thetans. One human may have thousands of BTs. Scientology sells parishioners training and equipment to telepathically contact BTs and convince them to leave. Pricing depends on how much processing it takes to finish the task, not on how many BTs there are. Scientology does not refer to the expulsion of BTs as exorcism.
Asked in Astronomy, Star Trek, Space Aliens
What type of alien is Lt. Jadzia Dax?
Lt. Jadzia Dax is a Trill. This unique "joined race" whose humanoid members have provided host bodies for small soft-bodied entities in a symbiotic relationship; Among the humanoid Trill joined species, apparently at least two races of hosts are used to house a symbiont: those of the ridged forehead and those like Jadzia with a narrow speckled band running along the hairline to the sides of the neck, then down along the body. If a host is weak, the personality of the symbiont will overwhelm it. Unless its current Joined Host objects, a prospective Host may request a specific symbiont. The symbiont body is a foot-long purplish lump of cranial and exoskeletal tissue, some are susceptible to damage by transporter beam. Thousands of symbionts live on Trill. Since the symbiont integrates each new host's personality with its own after joining, Trill relationships are often hard for single-unit species to deal with and sometimes don't survive the change. The symbiont does carry memories of time shared with each of its hosts, and each new combination - aside from gender, height and weight - carries a different blood type, metabolism, nervous system, and brain wave pattern. Only one Trill in ten is chosen to be joined to the "thousands" of symbionts, but those not joined still lead normal, productive lives. If the truth were known that half the population could be hosts, rather than the 1-in-1,000 ratio officially quoted and the reason behind the rigorous selection and training program, some at the Symbiosis Commission worry that the symbionts would be bartered as commodities. A Trill's lineal or family name follows the given name, as is done on Earth, but a host drops his lineal name in favor of the symbiont's. Social role equality seems apparent among the population, at least in medicine, with doctors and nurses of both genders.
What is ingest?
Technology: Ingest is a term used in broadcast that refers to the process of transferring content to a digital editing or storage system. In consumer speak, it means recording video material on to a hard disk recorder. The whole process includes digitizing the signal, compressing the digital data stream to reduce the amount of data stored and finally, storing the data as a file on a hard disk. Often, additional data is added to the file - program identifiers and time stamps, for example. The ever increasing automation of broadcasting means that more and more content is stored on video servers, ready to be played out on demand by transmission scheduling systems. Video ingest is a big activity right now as broadcasters transfer thousands of hours of tape to compressed, digital hard disk storage. Medicine and Diet: To ingest something is to take it into the body, such as by eating.
