I've yet to meet anyone who seems perfectly sane, regardless of their beliefs about alien abductions.

But as a general point. People can have experiences that seem real at the time and aren't, despite not seeming "crazy". From hallucinations to sleep paralysis to weirder things. And alien abduction stories tend to have huge gaping holes in them (for one, why would aliens drop by, abduct people at random, then leave? Interplanetary travel is not easy).

There's no simple dividing line between crazy and sane. We al fall short of "sane" in particular ways, some more than others.
What is not the answer to this question?

I'm sure that there is life on other planets.

I just hope the Yeerks aren't out there, waiting to invade our planet.

In such an enormous universe, how can there NOT be any other intelligent life out there. Whether any of it is within communication range of our own civilisation is another matter, not only because they'd have to be technologically advanced enough to be able to oick up and respond to our radio signals (and considering we only learnt how to do that a century and a half ago after 150,000 years of 'intelligent' life, the odds aren't looking great).

On the other hand, if the universe we see around us isn't real, and is just a simulation, then there doesn't have to be any other life out there. If the parameters of reality can be altered by any godlike being (such as the ones running the simulation, or God from a more religious viewpoint), we can't rely on probablility or intuition to resolve such a question.

I like to think that one day, when we look up into the sky, we'll find the evidene of some far-off civilisation, sculpting nebulae and suns into great monuments to life.

I do believe its possible for life, considering the infinite size of the universe, i like to keep an open mind on the matter.

i believe that there is intelligent life out there because the universe is so big.we can't assume that we are the only creatures to inhabit it after all we have only discovered a fraction of the "big out doors"
