Do You Believe in Extraterrestrial Beings?

Actually, I don't really have an opinion about this, but I will give you my Mister Spock analysis: If the universe is really infinite, than there is, logically, an infinite possibility of extraterrestrial life. But there, we have also many possibilities.

First, are all life-forms carbon-based and need oxygen to live? We can see weird animals haunt our deepest seas and bacteria surviving in extreme conditions, pushing farther  our comprehension of a "living being".

Then, the other question, linked with the first, would be: are there other "intelligent" life forms out there? Once again, the definition of intelligence is a human one, and therefore, logically, seen in a Vulcan perspective, limited. As an American philosopher whose name I forgot once pointed out, a cat sees the cars around him, but doesn't think of them as "cars".

Third and last question, also deriving from the first: are there aliens out there who will or have visited us? On this, I am quite a follower of Fermi's paradox, which is if there were, so they would have come long ago.If they haven't, there are three logical reasons: 1) they don't exist, 2) they are hiding from us for some unknown reason 3) we are the most advanced in the universe (which might be the most frightening idea).
