Ancient Aliens


Forget about Von Daniken for this discussion. He took it quite a bit too far. But let's discuss the possibility of alien visits regardless of claims by some that aliens were responsible for human achievements. I feel it is very plausible. In the search for extra-solar planets some astronomists contend that there may be more planets than stars in the universe. Having this knowledge there are still so many rational people who are arrogant enough to believe that earth is the only harborer of life. I contend that we will be capable of inter-stellar travel at some point in the future. So, why not some alien race that is potentially much older than ourselves

It's a possibility but I don't like it when people say: we can't explain how this civilization built this, therefore it had to be aliens. That's an argument from ignorance (argumentum ad ignorantiam).

I do believe that it is highly possible that there is life elsewhere in the universe but we do not have evidence that they came to earth in the past.

I also feel that 'Satan' felt bad for mankind and gave them the 'knowledge'(tree of knowledge of good and evil) to pursue a life outside of "Gods" restrictions and enslavement of mankind for mining and food (farming)
obviously to the believers in God this would seem that Satan was doing something 'wrong' or evil because it is against God's (alien's) word

agreed...do you not believe there are examples of (potential) circumstancial evidence?

Its quite possible that there is life out there somewhere, after all space is a big old place As for aliens coming here im guessing not. There doent seem to be alot happening in our speck of the universe, which means intergalactic travel and that takes a looong time. Unoccupied probes maybe, real live aliens no.

Interstellar voyagers by human artifacts has already begun (Voyager, Pioneer). but takes tens of thousands of years, so they are in a way not very "relevant". If similar artifacts from elsewhere exist in this solar system they would be extremely hard to detect.
