Re: "Do you believe in aliens"

Use of "believe in" irks me too be it about this topic or something like evolution.

A remarkable number of things are "just right" on Earth, any one of which would make life impossible. However, with some 100+ billion galaxies each with 200+ billion stars each, it's rather unlikely we're the only ones with air, water and just the right amount of sunshine. I remember reading somewhere that there's a mathematical probability of 1 million 'earth like' planets in the Milky Way alone.
