Rambam

Rambam states there is no life on other planets

free will

Too narrow an outlook to say intelligent life elsewhere would of necessity have no free will. Perhaps their Talmud says the same of us.

The final Frontier

Ok as a science fiction reader for over 60 years: Who says life on other worlds do not have free will? You believe G-d created the earth and then created man. And human beings have certain attributes. May the best planet win.

Intelligent Life and Free Will

We exercise free will daily, or at least we make decisions for good or not for good daily. We refer to ourselves as intelligent beings. Who decided that we are intelligent? Us? How can we call ourselves intelligent life and knowing good from evil, when so many choose evil. We don't seem to be doing very well with free will and decision making here on Planet Earth. Our polluted Water, Bad Air, Poor Health, War, all free will decisions to destroy what G-d has created.
