    Of course I believe.

    To think we are the only living things in the entire universe is ludicrous.

    Just because a person's never seen one doesn't mean they aren't there.

    If that were the case, a sizeable chunk of the religions could be disregarded.

    And no, I'm not saying Gods are aliens. Just saying, you don't have to see it to believe it's there.

    The only living beings? Yes. That is ludicrous. But, the chances that there are intelligent, self-aware beings and not just plants, animals, and other non-sapient life aren't that bad. It is not "ludicrous" to think that there might not be any intelligent life-forms. Granted, the odds favor some intelligent beings. But it's not a foregone conclusion. There is strong evidence that humans didn't become self-aware (ie. "intelligent") until fairly recently. And at the rate we're going, there's a reasonably good chance we'll wipe ourselves out. If earth survives for a few more billion years, having intelligent, self-aware life-forms (us) might be just a short-term blip in cosmic time.

    If there was only one intelligent civilization per galaxy, an approximately one in a trillion probability (200 billion stars per galaxy with an average of 5 planets per star), there would be somewhere around 200 billion intelligent civilizations in the known universe. To think that we are the only intelligent beings in the universe sounds kind of absurd to me.

    The question is how close is the nearest civilization? The nearest one could be somewhere in Andromeda or maybe only just 100 light years away.
