The odds of intelligent life arising on another Earth-like planet are low, a British scientist has calculated.

He argues that humans evolved via a series of four "critical steps" and that the likelihood of all these occurring elsewhere is less than 0.01%.

is less than 0.01%.




Considering we probably know of less then 0.01% of the universe and have only explored .00000 (do i even have to make this number up) this means nothing to me.

Humans are so arrogant for a species who can't even explore 1% of their own ocean. Let alone try to go to another planet.

I agree fully, we hardly know anything of the universe let alone what may be in it. It's just an uneducated guess to me.

How funny. I can mention scientists and physicists that think it's 100% chance.
If you ask me. This scientist is a disinfo on a government payroll.

simple as that.
