    At the risk of starting a religious flame war, I need to know where the Refuge stands on the possible existence of extraterrestrial life. I have been struggling greatly as of late with such philosophical questions like- What is the meaning of life? Who/what caused the Big Bang? Why are we here? Are we alone in the universe?

    I need some perspective. Thanks.

    If you think about how many stars are out there that have planets orbiting around them, it is almost a statistical impossibility that earth is the only planet on which life developed.

    FIFY..;)

    I certainly have beliefs on the answers to your questions, but we're not going to avoid religion if I share them.

    Like JBennet post above mine, I'd have to think some kind of life exists somewhere, just due to the number of galaxies, solar systems etc.

    Hope you're ready for an in depth explanation on how people in biblical times rode dinosaurs, people like Methusela literally lived 700-970 years (depending on source and interpretation), and a few flat earthers to chime in on this. There are very few areas in which I would factor in the opinions of the 'Fuge brain trust, and this is not one of them.

    I believe life is extremely resilient and will be found throughout the universe. I also don't see how that would be contrary to someone's religious beliefs.

    Have some fun and calculate how many ET civilizations you think there are....

    And this is just in the Milky Way. Not the other 100 billion galaxies in the observable universe.

    Aliens? What is the meaning of life? Heck, I’m still trying to figure out the meaning 9 to 5.

    Yes I do believe in aliens. Have you seen Taylor Swift? She is an alien.
