Are we the most intelligent creature in the universe?

The word " Belief" is defined as a mental conviction without proof. Science is how we humans either prove or disprove a belief or a theory as well. I hear so many people who speak of extraterrestrial beings or life forms as if it is just common knowledge. Tread light should one ask for proof. Some scientific facts that do more than just support the theoretical probability. Can anyone show me the smoking gun? The real tangible, undeniable scientific proof we are not alone? NO not yet so why are you people acting like it's real?

    Scientists know that their are billions of planets where life might evolve.  There might even be life as we don't know it...perhaps in very cold places.  Scientists know that the elements of life (such as amino acids) can spontaneously form by lightning strikes in swamps.  Though the creation of life only happened once on earth (since all DNA is related, life only started once), it is difficult to determine the probability that life evolved on another planet.  Since we don't know that life exists in space, we can't state that it does.  However, we can state that it is a possibility, and we can search for life out there (radio waves, etc.).

    No, some human beings have become like God and become far more intelligent than they were. Our species is spread throughout the universe, by the way. God has placed his human children on countless worlds.

    Belief is beyond the prove of Scientific method, since Science is only dealing in the field of concrete or materilistic point of views, while belief is one of the faculties of human being , as being abstract that concern with soul and spirit , which is beyond the scope of Science.

    Can you distinguish the differences between rightiosness and evilness that effect the soul of human by using Electronic measuring machine .

    "Are we the most intelligent creature in the universe?"

    Yes, human beings who are created in the image of God have the highest level of intellect among all of the other creatures God created.

    "The word " Belief" is defined as a mental conviction without proof."

    Not correct definition of belief. Belief is not the absence of evidence.

    Hebrews 11:1  Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. 

    Can you see the beauty of a sunset? You cannot prove beauty apart from stealing from the Biblical worldview.

    "Science is how we humans either prove or disprove a belief or a theory as well."

    Only in the natural realm. Science is limited to the natural realm and cannot interact with the supernatural.

    On the planet?

    Sure.

    We have no idea what's out there.

    I'd like to think we're not the smartest if there is anything out there, cos we're not that smart..

    I mean most of our species still believes in invisible space folk.

    Humans like to think we're the most intelligent creature on Earth.  Whether we are or not is a matter of perception and opinion.  Look at the way we're destroying our planet, going to war, committing terrorist atrocities, and so on, maybe we're wrong.

    As for being the most intelligent in the universe, it would be illogical to assume that Earth is the only planet on which life forms evolved.  It seems likely that life exists on thousands of other planets, but we'll probably never know for sure.
