Description

Aliens definitely exist somewhere out there, as humans and animals on Earth in no way are the only forms of life. There are so many planets, stars, galaxies that we've found that it would be impossible for at least one of them to have life.

          Do aliens exist? This is a very interesting question that us humans have been trying to understand, explore, and figure out for a very long time. According to https://www.seti.org/press-release/how-many-habitable-planets-are-out-there, "Thanks to new research using data from the Kepler space telescope, it’s estimated that there could be as many as 300 million potentially habitable planets in our galaxy. Some could even be pretty close, with several likely within 30 light-years of our Sun,". It is very unlikely with this data that all 300 million of those planets do not hold any life.

          Additionally, the Time Magazine (https://time.com/alien-life/) published an article that stated, "The Milky Way has around 100 billion (10^11) star systems that could conceivably host intelligent life under our current assumptions. An estimate of 100,000 (10^5) active civilizations in the galaxy would mean one per million star systems,". Both of these studies express a large possibility of planets that could be inhabited. 

          The math and data clearly show aliens have a very high chance to exist.

Aliens? Total nonsense! Humans waste time pondering such fantasies, and how can we believe some random websites that just talk about random stuff? They say there could be thousands of civilizations out there, but you can't trust any of it. Sure, some claim there are billions of habitable planets out there, but where's the proof? Saying there could be thousands of civilizations is pure speculation. Until then, it's all just a big hoax. We humans must focus on things ON EARTH, not creating an imaginary fairy tale.
