Don't go putting words in my mouth.
I said it could be, which is only a thought.
But as far as observable clear cut evidence there is none for life existing outside of Earth, which I might add does not mean there is not life outside of Earth.
To dismiss the thought that life in this Universe originated on Earth is very close minded also.
You mean observable evidence that you have observed yourself, which it sounds like you haven't. You have no knowledge what other people have observed.
Just because there isn't public official and academic confirmation of something concrete does not mean it doesn't exist, or that no one has ever seen it, it only means you haven't seen it. You don't speak for everyone. But the same thing you just said is often parroted by some scientist, or some other public figure, as if they know. They only know what they know personally. Having most all of society agree on something like "nobody knows for sure" is also completely false. It is only true for those who agree with it based on what they know or don't know.

What? "...the universe is fine tuned for life to exist"?
Since when? The universe is full of all kinds of radiation, flying rocks, small dust particles so fast they put a hole in the strongest materials, explosions everywhere, ....
Earth is fine tuned for life. That much is true. But take away the Moon and the magnetic core and you get a wobbling rock without seasons and atmosphere.
How many planets have we found with magnetic core and a moon, or something similar that keeps the axis stable?
None. If you don't mind me answering my own question.
From the fires of chaos, emits an eternal spark. life. human. the vagrant virus that consumes all.
To the religious it means, that other intelligent life forms, let alone other MORE intelligent life forms than humans, simply cannot exist can it?
What actually happened was , a space shuttle and sending drones to other planets. We (humanity) are now at the point were is seems doubtful whether man will land on the moon within the next decade.
Well, I personally believe that this universe is likely to be one expression of a deeper, more fundamental structure, like a twig, which itself is the issue of a branch, which itself is the issue of a trunk, which itself was grown from some kind of larger body.
