As of August 2018, World Population Review posted that total population of the world exceeds 7.63 billion, and this number is continuously growing each day. However, even with our inflating populace, we still feel solitary enough to be more interested in looking for life outside earth.
The discovery of planets, star systems, and galaxies has led mankind on Earth to ask, “is there anyone else out there?” One of the oldest ‘answers’ to these questions can be found way back to ancient times, embedded in our religious beliefs.
There’s nothing wrong about discovering what’s out there and reaching out to extraterrestrial beings; however, wouldn’t it make more sense for us to reach out amongst ourselves first – our fellow human being?
We have over 7 billion people from almost 200 countries with a vast array of cultures, customs, and values. I don’t know about you, but I find far more value in reaching out to these real people than anyone or anything that might or might not exist.
Do you believe in life elsewhere in the universe? Why or why not?
Yes, I do. Because there are such a lot of stars and planets in the space, I think there are some planets similar earth condition. In such a case, I think life may exist as earth is. But because it might exist so far away, we can not connect with the life.
I think it is more important for us discovering a solution to one major problem in our world today. To do so, we can save a lot of people in the world. There is a dream in discovering extraterrestrial life, but it can not save many people. So, I want to chose discovering a solution to one major problem in our world.
