I am not a believer in the existence of extraterrestrial life on Earth, however I am all the same constantly astonished by the immediate reaction of incredulity and mockery that most people have on the issue of extraterrestrial life. It is really not that implausible. The universe - scratch that, just THIS galaxy of ours alone is an extremely big place. The Milky Way by itself is truly large, with exceedingly many solar systems, and that is just in our galaxy alone. There are exceedingly many other galaxies out there. Which is why, even though I've never seen evidence of an ET, and I cannot say I believe in their existence (in the way the are represented by most media anyways), I'd say there is a far higher probability of their existence than there is of Obama saving the US, or of the GOP growing a spine and doing real good for the country. Much higher probability.
Yet, the mere mention of anything related to an ET and one gets guffaws, yet I keep reading headlines of how the GOP is about to (nominate a conservative, win the election, put someone with a brain in charge of the House, save West, put forth Palin, vote correctly on the fiscal cliff, release damaging info using the Trump stalking horse, all sorts of other October surprises, etc etc etc) and yet no laughter comes from such statements? Maybe the reaction to ET stories and the latest 'headlines' from FR regarding the 'inside dope' on what the GOP will do need to be exchanged!

I hear you. One night, the Summer before last, during a camping trip deep into the wilderness I saw a incredible glowing green orb shoot out of a remote canyon, zig zag in the sky across the hillside in front of me then dive back into the canyon. I experienced an "immediate reaction of incredulity and mockery" when I told my family and co-workers about it. I have learned to keep my mouth shut about such things.

For a starter I would suggest to read the Earth Chronicals and think about what you just have read. The books from this series of books to read first I would suggest Genesis Revisited and the 12th Planet as I do believe they come about as close to the truth as it gets. It will still take a while before humns wake up, but there is little doubt in my mind that sooner or later they will and figure out how modern Man came about. And keep in mind that I am not making any reference to Life as such as this an altogether different story.
I believe ‘life’ as a mass of atomic and/or subatomic matter can and probably does exist elsewhere in the vast expanse of the ‘universe’ even if different in form. I also believe that it is reasonable that there is a creative force that is innate with all things in this ‘universe’. I call this force God. My earthly religious beliefs are based on and in the presence of God.
