In a universe with billions and billions of stars and galaxies, ask yourself:Could it all have been made for the human race on Earth?
Such a vast universe has infinite chances of life springing up on other planets besides the tiny blue dot we call home.
To think we could be so arrogant to deny the assumption life exists elsewhere in the universe.
I read that a lot. I don't understand how it's "arrogant" to look at the available proof, which offers no clue that there is life anywhere but here. It's not as if I gain anything from having that attitude. What am I going to do "brag" about us being the only intelligence in the universe? To whom? Makes no sense at all.
. We haven't found as much as a single little living microbe outside the Earth's atmosphere. Maybe we will someday.
But here's another statistics quiz: If we find another intelligent lifeform on another planet, does that: a) increase, b) decrease, or c) have no effect on the odds that there are even more ET intelligences out there? Take your time.

At this point in time, I believe there are exactly zero intelligent ET species, since there has yet to be even one proven to exist. So I guess they're all the same at this point. Hypothetical.
If you believe there are some out there, then your range of estimates goes from 1 to approximately half of infinity.
