I like how people assume that lots of space means there is other life.
Going on nothing but logic.... we know that on earth, life is every where. You can see vast tracks of green life. It is in the air, water, on land, and in the soil. Life can adapt past major events that cause mass extinctions, yet rebound and refill the gaps.
Yet, looking at our own solar system we see lifeless orbs.
Planets baked to a crisp, devoid of water, frozen beyond chemistry... and unshielded from radiation.
So despite the concepts, the dreams, and the wishes... the FACTS are there are no signals from space, no proof of aliens, no lush planets. We keep expanding our view, and the more nothing we find, the more we have to consider WE are the exception to the rule.
Logic sugest we are alone, and until there is evidence otherwise, there is no reason to think that more space means more life.
After all, live can live at the bottom of the ocean, in 300 degree mud pits, and in the freezing upper atmosphere....but after 4 BILLION years...hasn't spread across a single neigboring planet. Even more of a bummer is if we find that life was on Mars or else where and was snuffed out. Because they earth is just a lucky rock... and we are it.

my reptilian friend and I are able to telepathically communicate with each other, whales also use this type communication, when you saw those orbs in space they were whales, projecting in astral form, swimming through space, and the darts of light were iguanas who have transformed into a different energetic state
humans are primitive in comparison to these technologies, you should all learn from the 'creatures' on earth before you declare yourselves 'the most technologically advanced'

We've barely studied our own solar system.
We've only gained the ability to detect the largest planets in the last 10 years at short distances.
This galaxy alone contains 100 billion stars. There are at least 100s of billions of galaxies. I think logically we are not the ONLY life in the universe.
Your argument fails because we have explored so little of space.
We've cataloged less than 100 hundred planets.
As far as I know we can't detect anything near an Earth sized planet.
It is staggering to think Earth is the only planet with life.
There might not be any ET life for hundreds or thousands of light years away, but that's still just a fraction of the Milky Way. I would bet my life there is life somewhere outside the Earth.
Is there really any doubt there are other intelligent beings somewhere in the universe. Whether aliens are visiting is the question. I believe they are.

Clearly you missed the fact that I was being logical. There is no Logical reason to think beings from other planets are visiting earth. If you do, then you don't get logic or the concept of evidence and proof. You don't have to agree with me...
Personal experience and faith often overide logic.
More working room does not *logically* mean repeated outcomes (ie life). This is expecially true when you are talking about things as large as planets and comlpex as life.

No. We have stupid people, stupid people who join the military...
but socially and ethically humans are still very primitive
