    Even if alien bacterium were to evolve into an intelligent life form, I would still believe that humans are and will always be the most intelligent life for to have ever existed.
    No other species could come close to our advancement.
    As civilization grows older, we grow intelligent.
    An alien civilisation could have begun millions of years before ours began. They might have a significant head start on us.

    But I believe in scientific evidence and proof.
    Theoretical science is cool, but one can only go so far with it.
    Laws of nature must still dictate on any living thing, so for example I do not believe that humanity can maintain itself for a million years as something had to give

    Because the percentage of the observable universe we've observed is miniscule and the vast majority of the universe is unobservable with current technology.

    Laws of nature do not dictate that civilization only lasts as long as ours so far has... so the possibility of them being more advanced is still open in regards to your reasoning

    It's perfectly plausible given how big the universe is and how little we know about it. Maybe there aren't that many "intelligent" life forms out there but I do believe that there could be life out there for example I heard a theory about aliens on Saturn's moon Titan.

    I believe that the Universe is some kind of experiment (or simulation) that is being run by a more advanced civilization. And that intelligent species across the Universe reach a certain point before they self-destruct. I think that when the Universe collapses in on itself in the distant future, it will reset itself, and that there will be another big bang.

    Yes I believe in aliens, there are so many planets and systems out there I'm sure that there are other aliens/species out there both more advanced than we are but also some which are less advanced

    You don't have an opinion. You are just being a parrot. You are using (without any logic or reason) your religion, which you most likely inherited and didn't decide to follow yourself / had a predisposition (because of your upbringing) to follow it, to answer whether there is intelligent life apart from what is on earth. You did not think once, you just said what you were supposed to say according to your religion. Congratulations.

    Yeah, I believe aliens exist. Firstly they're bound to exist and secondly, the aliens that exist probably aren't visible to the naked eye. And physics needs more updating. physics teacher drives me crazy sometimes lol. And I do believe in God.

    There is bound to be some life out there somewhere. Are we ever likely to find it, especially intelligent life? No.

    We will never meet an intelligent life form from another planet.

    It is highly likely that there is/was/will be another intelligent species somewhere in the Universe. But:

    ~ Humans have only existed for a fraction of our planet's life-supporting timeframe
    ~ We haven't even discovered basic alien life let alone intelligent
    ~ I believe FTL travel won't be possible so meeting them is out of the question even if they exist

    And my favourite point:

    ~ Our intelligence/intrigue/technological developments is/are effectively a side-effect(s) of our evolutionary dominance so even highly intelligent alien life is unlikely to have the technology to communicate with us, whether contact is made or not.

    There is just no way that homeo sapiens are the only intelligent life forms in the universe. I honestly believe that UFOs have landed here on Earth. Take me to your leader
