For the record, I DO think that life probably exists outside of our planet. I don't claim proof of such, it`s just a hunch as a scientist. But I think that it`s much more likely that that extraterrestrial life is probably microbial, or at least primtive, whatever that means. Statistically, some should be more advanced than us. But interstellar/galactic travel? Dudes, there are speed limits, apparently, even in the universe as a whole.

I don`t however, believe that UFOs captured on video on Earth is an intelligent intergalactic space-race who happened to f*ck up when they traversed the galaxy to reach our entirely mediocre planet, and crash into the dirt somewhere in New Mexico because the autopilot somehow failed. THAT is the part I have trouble with personally.

Again, all based on intuition, personal experience, and education. I`ll be the first one to eat my hat if I`m wrong and an intelligent alien shakes my hand tomorrow. As every self-proclaimed scientist shoul

Davy has said nothing about the bacteria on a Martian rock, so this point is invalid as it has nothing to do with our debate.

True, and the reason I didn't mention it is because, frankly, I don`t know enough about it. Of course I`m aware of the media furore surrounding that martian rock, but best I can remember the results were inconclusive. I can`t be a proper scientist unless I appraise all the evidence laid before me. And that may have been martian bacteria, or it may have been an artifact. Again, I find myself agreeing with CJ. As they say, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, and there was (to the best of my knowledge) no such evidence presented in that case. Could have been caused by a number of geoscientific phenomena.

Btw, out of all the rock samples that Mars probes and rovers have analyzed, no living or dead bacteria have been observed.

A) Well DERP. Let me ask you: How deep do we usually find fossilized dinosaur bones? Now, how deep do NASA probes usually dig?

Assuming nothing has lived on the planet for a couple thousand years, OR COURSE there aren't going to be signs of life on the surface. They would all be buried underneath millennia of dust and dirt, possibly under the ice layers that they`ve been trying to probe recently.

Altaru: Geologists with a goal/agenda in mind ahead of time can make mistakes as easily as anyone else and because the rock was found here on earth it is much more likely the bacteria is of earth origin.

If they ever find a Mars rock on mars with the same sort of bacteria that would be something, right now it's nothing but bad speculation.
