Aliens may actually exist and resemble humans, possessing limbs and a head, and could even have the capacity to think intelligently, a University of Cambridge expert has claimed.

Biologist Simon Conway Morris, an expert in evolution at the University of Cambridge, said the chances of alien life evolving elsewhere in the universe are “pretty high”.

Morris, in a new book called The Runes Of Evolution, discusses a theory called convergence, which suggests evolution may proceed along certain lines rather than being a chaotic process.

If true, this would mean extraterrestrials are “almost guaranteed” to possess limbs and a head, and think intelligently – just like us earthlings, ‘mirror.co.uk’ reported.

“Evolution is far from a random process. If the outcomes of evolution are at least broadly predictable, then what applies on Earth will apply across the Milky Way, and beyond,” Morris said.

“I would argue that in any habitable zone that doesn’t boil or freeze, intelligent life is going to emerge,” Morris said.

“And given the number of potential planets that we now have good reason to think exist, even if the dice only come up the right way every one in 100 throws, that still leads to a very large number of intelligences scattered around, that are likely to be similar to us,” he said.

    It can be suspected, Biologist Simon Conway Morris can be an alien.

      The notion that other intelligent life forms have to be humanoid in form is ridiculous. The essential ingredients of intelligent life forms are a physical ability to record knowledge, have desire to p down this knowledge to future generations, live a social life (including waging wars in groups), have common greed and desire to always want more which drives innovation and so on. If Dolphins had thumbs like us, they probably would have developed underwater tools and evolved into competing intelligent life forms.

        There are many scientific cues pointing to the claim; however, no proof as such. Without detail, this is just another scientific rumor.

          Stands to reason. However, with such identified probable attributes such as intelligence, the one thing that may be said is that the British parliament (or the Indian) most definitely does not have ANY aliens!

            Of course that would make the term "alien" incorrect. Should they look exactly like us, they would be humans from another planet but not an alien life form. The odds of an alien life form evolving to be humanoid are trillions to one.
