The universe is pretty large.
It would be fairly arrogant to think we are the only intelligent life forms.

Looks like a big flat stone, God skimming the universe maybe?

I wager when we make significant advancements in finding life in Space, we will first find several, maybe even hundreds of non intelligent, non predicted types of "life" before ever finding intelligent life.

The idea that Earth is the only planet with life in the entire universe is absurd. There are hundreds of millions of stars in in our Milky Way galaxy alone, many if not most of which we now know have solar planetary systems. Then there are are millions of galaxies.

There may be even be life in our own solar system - underground on Mars or on Jupiter's moon Europa which has a huge ocean under its icy crust.

But I suspect intelligent, space travelling life is very rare.

We are having difficulty, finding intelligent life on this planet and what are our chances elsewhere?

Why would it be life as we understand it?

Beacause we only know of one system that leads to life (our own, starting with simple membranes and single cell lifeformes etc)

There's no guarantee that that that's the only way life can begin or that our existence (with mold, germs, bacteria, plants animals and sentence) is the only results of those "naturally occurring accidents".

The trouble with panspermia is, the size and hostility of space still makes it so unlikely, plus, it just sweeps the question under the mat.

If life came from elsewhere in the universe, then where did the life that life-as-we-know-it come from?

A star/plane/galaxy, that exploded billions of years ago and hit earth soon after? We may have lived on another planet, not far from us and made a mess of that too?

yeah but "we" what, as mold? as bacteria?


We can trace our genetic ancestry back to dinosaurs and further back to the basic building blocks of life.
If life came from elsewhere in the universe, it came as something very, very basic.
I reckon we grew ourselves here with only minor influence from the greater universe.
There is nothing close to what we call "life" that can survive, billions of years frozen/incinerated/crushed/sterilized by space. a comet/meteor has no protection from the freezing, radioactive and vacuum of interstellar space, there is just nothing "living" that could make the trip.

we developed at this atmospheric pressure but on our own planet we don't even know how deep our own oceans are because the atmospheric pressure there is so great we can't explore .
Only recently they discovered life near underwater volcanoes in conditions that wouldn't have been considered survivable.
The idea that only carbon based life exists because we are carbon based is a bit narrow .

Don't know, we didn't arrive as an egg and grew into a chicken?
