What about the Freemasonry? That's a real organization. So, of course people may believe it exists.

Probably she meant about all the claims that surround the organization, not whether it exists

Not just religious. There are very scientific reasons that go against extra terrestrial life, certainly ET life visiting us.

Yes, the Fermi Paradox is one of them, for sure, and Rare Earth Hypothesis is another. Quite interesting formulas stand at the base of pages and pages of good science. I recommend them to all who never like to blindly follow what someone else says, along with Drake's explanations for the other side of this debate.

yes exactly. Although the main problems with those are that the assume everything in terms on Earth rules. For instance the Drake equation has the probability that life can exist on a planet, but it talks about life in terms of what we think is needed for life, while an alien race from another galaxy may look at life in a strikingly different way, something we can't even begin to comprehend.

We can be sure that the chemical elements on an alien planet are the same as those on earth. So yes, we can begin to comprehend what is needed for life.

To be fair, the latest developments in the exoplanet research has been more optimistic than we would ever have imagined. There have been numerous planets discovered with telescopes and rudimentary techniques that makes it obvious how common planets actually are. We have even discovered planets bearing water, and planets in the habitable zones and even planets with both these characteristics and Earth-like sizes.

Quote:
In February 2013, researchers calculated that up to 6% of small red dwarf stars may have planets with Earth-like properties. This suggests that there could be up to 4.5 billion such planets within our galaxy, and, statistically speaking, the closest "alien Earth" to the Solar System could be 13 light-years away.
Between 2000 and 2009, Drake formula has dropped to the pessimistic percentages, but now it is again going to the optimistic values. Between 2011 and 2013, there have been enough discoveries of planets to create a new field in astronomy.

Humans have already been cloned to star on shows like The Mickey Mouse Club and sing songs such as "Call Me Maybe."

Yup, it sounds very optimistic, but I'd rather be cautiously optimistic. Our own Mars and Venus at some point seemed to be very Earth-like and placed more-less in habitable zone. Only on closer look did everything start to look very different
