See I don't think they are similar at all in technology

Think about how far we've advanced in the past 100 years. What are the chances two planets millions of light years apart developed within 100 years at the same pace?

Almost impossible. I like listening to Neil Degrasse Tyson because he talks about how other intelligent things may have already visited Earth, and determined there was no intelligent life here. lol. If there are other living things out there, they could very well be far more advanced and traveling at a much higher speed than we think is possible.

There probably is at least another extraterrestrial life out there that's intelligent, even though it seems exceptionally unlikely for the perfect environment to be created.

I'd actually say it's pretty likely, considering how big the universe is.

I do believe that there is likely life somewhere. But there seems to be great odds against creating the perfect environment to sustain it. So in conclusion, there is probably other intelligent life out there. But it's probably a very few.

In a universe (possibly a multi-verse) with billions of stars and planets, Earth can't be the only one that fits the requirements for life.

Yes, the universe is too big not have at least a few other intelligent species. Hundreds of billions of stars in one galaxy and there is hundreds of billions of galaxies. If the chances are SUPER small, chances are there is intelligent life somewhere.

I think there are other intelligent life forms out there, somewhere in the universe, but I don't believe they've ever visited us.

There probably is. Will we ever make contact with them? Probably not in our lifetime.

Either they're not advanced enough to reach us, or are so advanced we don't interest them (well, they might study us, but we'd never know it).

If they are advanced, lets just hope they're liberals, who won't want to damage the frail ecosystem of the human habitat :P

There might be. Perhaps they're just too far away; in another universe and all that.

I don't believe that there are aliens or any other such beings living out there in the universe. I have a hard time believing that there are even intelligent beings on Earth sometimes.

Well, I think it's a possibility. I mean, that's a lot a lot of space for us to be the only intelligent beings. Seems like a massive waste.

Well I'm doing so because I realize how close we are to other less intelligent species and the possibilities that lie out there. Others are doing so for comedic purposes. We're what, 97% the same as gorillas? The difference between us and gorillas could easily exist between us and a more intelligent species.

We like to think of ourselves as being super intelligent, but we've only been 'civilized' for a few thousand years, if that. What about another planet that began supporting 'intelligent life' ten thousand years (absolutely nothing in space time) before us? They likely couldn't even communicate with us, much less think of us as intelligent. It would be like us trying to communicate with neanderthals. They'd think we were wild animals.

Yeah, that's great and everything (and pretty much what anyone who has given this topic any real thought has also concluded), but it's also missing the point. When scientists use the term "intelligent life", they aren't using it to describe super geniuses, or even morons. When they ask "Is there intelligent life out there?" they are asking if there are other creatures out in the universe that can do things like make decisions. Yes, hardy har har, even if those decisions are stupid, like all buying a Wii U. Other animals on this planet are examples of intelligent life, even if they are not as "intelligent" as homo sapiens. I don't think people understand the term, that's all.

So with that said, and the proper definition in mind, I merely commented on the amusing joke so many people made--that they don't even consider themselves "intelligent life".

It's possible, I suppose. Also, why does everyone automatically assume that aliens are always smarter than us? For all we know it could be the opposite..

I think it's very possible. Not to mention the things others have said here, like the universe being so big that there is at least a small chance of there being life somewhere else. And there are definitely places where life can develop, like that one moon that might have water underneath its icy surface. Basically, the chances of it may be extremely slim, considering just how rare a place like Earth is, but it's not impossible, and is worth believing in that possibility. So, yes.
