in reply to Do you really want to know if there is extraterrestrial life?

I voted "No" because I'm sure there is.

I'm pretty sure it's an intelligent life form. Proof is: They ignore us.

    I voted "No" because I'm sure there is.

    It's interesting - I don't see the causative relationship.
    To me, it would make just as much sense (ie none whatsoever) to say "I voted 'Yes' because I'm sure there is".

    The question is "Do you *want* to know", and the answer is not reliant upon what (if anything) you already know.
    The question is about what you *want* to know, irrespective of anything that you already know.

    Cheers,
