There`s got to be. Everywhere on earth we find water. It`s the source of life. And this is still limiting to the idea that all life needs water to survive. Even still, there are plenty on candidates for water in places other than earth. The frozen water on mars (still possible for liquid water somewhere as well), the frozen water on europa (and a possible massive global ocean underneath with who knows what), even frozen water on the moon could have some potential. And if water has no importance to other life forms, there are tons more possibilities. Titan with its methane cycle, Venus with it`s super hot atmosphere and even finding an oxygen atmosphere on Rhea. New discoveries are being discovered everyday.

Life as demonstrated on our own planet that it can take the harshest of climates. Volcanoes, dark cave rivers, deep in the ocean beside super hot vents and even in permafrost. I`m beginning to think of life having the potential to be anywhere there is energy being created.

Anyone who says there is no life other than the like on earth is extremely close minded. How are they the ones to say they have all the answers and they know everything there is to know. Space is a big place. When haven`t even grown the nail to scratch the surface of these discoveries yet. The only thing you can be sure about is that we are learning more and more everyday, and it is and can only become more and more.

It's amazing both ways you look at it. Suppose we are the only ones? Wouldn't that be a question to ponder. Why us? Why this time in galactic existence? Could it be that we were created by a supreme being simply for entertainment? The other side of the of the coin is much more logical, that there is other life out there. There are billions of galaxies, each with billions of stars. It's hard to imagine that, out of all those great odds, that we are the only ones. Scientists are getting better technology to prove that there are other planetary systems. They have looked closely at our own galactic neighborhood and, unfortunately, haven't turned up any, but they believe they have found quite a few planets further out.

There are strong indications that there has been life on Mars, in the form of tiny bacteria, but so far there is no conclusive proof. But if you look at the enormous number of planets and moons in the galaxy, it would be statistically highly unlikely that life only evolved on earth. Even the Vatican belives there is life other places in the universe.

Most likely yes, because the universe is so large and there are so many stars and planets.
Furthermore, there may be different forms of life.

But even the nearest star is many light-years away so communication with them is difficult, and surely not real-time.

You find a bug crawling across a leaf on a bush in your garden of bushes and leaves. You quickly search another ten or so leaves and find no others. You are excited and delighted and announce to the world that you have found the only bug in the universe!

Almost certainly, we are not the only living creatures in the universe. Aside from occasional unconfirmed UFO sightings, however, there is no *proof* that we are not alone or that beings from other galaxies have tried to contact us.

Absolutely yes, If you believe in heaven, then the answer has to be yes.
