If someone wants to vote, you have to vote for the "Yes" or the "No"(I mean not for the ones with dots: "Yes." or "No.")

From the statistical point of view it is practically impossible that the Earth is the only place with life.
Moreover other intelligent life surely was, is or will be present in the galaxy.

Paolo(and everybody):
if there weren't life on other planets, won't it be a waste of SPACE????

Darkmiss: it was an error. first there were 2 answers, and this was a sticky. when i removed the sticky, the poll was also removed. so i put again the poll. and then i realized that now i have 4 answers to the first poll. i dont know...

To the individual designated as "ElPelado":

We have encountered the same error.
Also, a default place for any life forms is ON the planet.

Where do you live? ON the planet or IN the planet?

Say, have you watched recently Contact ? :wink:

If it seems the universe cannot be so unpopulated, having only one intelligent specie, it seems too the physics laws cannot let the different specie to meet together... :cry:

Borg, sorry. I am not an english speaking person and also, i am not a machine like you. so if i make mistakes is only for those reasons.

Psykotik: i saw it many years ago, but I loved that frase.

We are not machines, we are cyborg, taking the best from biology and technology and fusing them together.

Even we make mistakes, but we crave for perfection and any mistake/error is corrected right away preventing any other mistaking on the same spot...

A bit obvious

Well...

Given we have a statistical sample of one which is NOT independent from our ability to ask the question in the first place... I'd say the appropriate answer (to quote a classic science fiction story) is "insufficient data for a meaningful answer".

btw: I voted 'yes' (without the full-stop). But I think the Fermi Paradox is a clear rationale for assuming the non-existence of other INTELLIGENT life-forms in the galaxy... at least given standard intuitions about what it is to be intelligent and a life-form.

Anyone not seen the following article? It's about Fermi's paradox and (to a lesser extent) the Drake equation. A friend of mine once showed me a reasonable set of estimates for the Drake parameters where the number of expected planets with life (not even intelligent) in the galaxy came out as "0.97". They did have a few orders of magnitute-worth in error limits however....

Not if we will eventually explore, visit and colonise it...

The arrogance of Humans- to believe that we are so special as to be the only "intelligent" life in our universe of BILLIONS of stars and planets!
.... is there anybody out there?

If you have the chance, view the Star Trek - The Next Generation, Season 4, Episode 16 designated as "First Contact".
