U.S. government investigators did not find extraterrestrial links in reviewing 144 sightings of aircraft or other devices apparently flying at mysterious speeds or trajectories. But they drew few other conclusions and instead highlighted the need for better data collection about what’s increasingly seen by Democrats and Republicans as a national security concern.

The Question of the Week is: Do you believe there is intelligent life anywhere in the universe besides Earth?

• I don't know what to think

• Definitely no

• Definitely yes

• Yes, and we have been visited

Bailey Jones - there is more than ample proof to bolster your observation![tongue]

The question is "Intelligent" life. Bacteria is thousands of times more likely than thinking life. With bacteria and evolution life could become intelligent. The odds are low but it could happen. Astrometors claim there are more than a trillion solar systems in the known universe. There is no reason to think our solar system is the only one to produce life or the evolution to create intelligent life. In a 15 billion year old universe our intelligent life only took 400 million years to start evolving.There is no reason to think evolution has finished with more years remaining on the process than were used for bacteria to become humans.
