Favorite Quotes from Life in the Universe Essays:

— Aliens —

Every term, each student in my Astronomy 115 course (Life in the Universe) was assigned to write an essay giving his or her opinion on the following question:

"Do extraterrestrial technical civilizations currently exist in our Galaxy?"

This group of quotes concerns aliens. (The typos and misspellings are real, but they are not mine.) The material is presented here without comment; you will have to make up your own.

    Essay Quotes: Aliens

  1. I also think that they probably resemble us when it comes to physical features because everyone else imagines aliens with big black eyes and gray skin but who really has seen them besides the nutty people. Like I said earlier, we have no physical evidence of the at this point in our lives or that we know about because the government is pretty sneaky when it comes covering things up, but as of now, nothing.

  2. In order for extraterrestrial life to exist, I think that their bodies would have to be the same as ours.

  3. Another reason why I do not think extraterrestrial life exists is, because people that claim they have been abducted by aliens are lying.

  4. For all we know, the aliens could be from several hundred galaxies away in another part of the universe who've never seen or thought of.

  5. UFOs, or Unidentified Flying Objects, are the transportation mechanisms for Aliens.

  6. The probability that the aliens are in close range to us is about equal to that of them being very far away.

  7. I feel ETs could look just like us depending on how they are created.

  8. I do believe that aliens are too intelligent to fight, so until we can make peace they will stay invisible to us.

  9. I feel that "aliens" are some sort of made up creature, that was created for someone to get some attention.

  10. I'm not saying that they would look just like us, but there is no way to know what they look like until we actually find them, all this means is their probably very similar to us and live like us, if they truly are intelligent beings.

  11. An intelligent extraterrestrial is one such as a monkey, dolphin, or a being that has not gone through some of the advanced stages of evolution.

  12. Another good question is if you believe in god and angels, why wouldn't you believe in aliens because they are sort of related to god and angels because they are being talk about in book. God and angels are being talked about in the bible.
