sunkissedlotus: two - one on top one on bottom haha.
Thirty ought Six: what's the square root of 69?
spartacandream: @charliedgz So common even, that we're different that we only had a humanlike civilization once. You're right, we really don't know for certain, we're just figuring this out. Or trying to anyway
AlienshateU: Learn about the Fermi Paradox.
They are setting you all up for the fake "alien invasion" to help set up the 7 year New World Order just in time for 2012! Do not fall for it. Do NOT take the RFID Somark tattoos nor PositiveID verichips!

KaningLamigin: @monkies978 I agree, however it is very unlikely. The fact that in this planet, we humans are the only intelligent life among the many other species suggests that there is a relatively low chance for extra-terrestial life to have similar intelligence.
Finding extra terrestial life is tedious at the least, let alone an intelligent one.
MrCabanes: @cydwest I was using the examples of gas, fire and light to dress up the pattern of having different forms of intelligence other than what we are used to. I truly believe that anything is possible. Who would have thought 50 years ago, that theories on true artificial intelligence could be possible. Thinking sand grains, lol . . . The interface and the intelligence are 2 different things and the equation is not considering this aspect.
MrCabanes: @BR177 What paradoxical science could be sometimes-)
MrCabanes: The equation assumes an organic cell-based life form. What about other kind of life forms based on elements such as gas, fire, light? Anything is possible, why scientists box our universe with limited vision?
Nol Duindam: It's just cool@gool54
Nol Duindam: Dude that man is a genius
gool54: doesnt make any sense as values are just a guess how you can use datas which are just a guess????
Rod Karlsen: if Time is an innate quality of the universe and ends within a black hole...what about the black holes that are in the space? were they "universes" before? or are they just shortcuts within other parallel dimensions?
mikebe41: yes I agree with yo, but it sure sucks, to be all alone in the damn big universe!
rollandburn: based on ALL the physical evidence? it seems kind of irrational to spend the billions on a theory.... unless of course some there were some physical evidence of intelligent life out there, perhaps the kind that has come to us for a visit.
farley pants: is that music at the end from Spore?
Spore is SO much easier than the real thing!
Joseph Grace: its just a way of organising our ignorance.
riversonthemoon: I've always found the Drake equation to be kind of useless. The possibility of alien intelligence captures my imagination as much as the next guy, but I don't see how much value we can get from multiplying assumptions. That being said, it is interesting to think about.
