I think you're missing the point of what a lot of people are saying.
Some people are saying there is no PROOF of ET life -- although I think most of them think that ET life is likely. There is plenty of circumstantial evidence of ET life, considering the scale of the universe and the fact that life on Earth seems to be very adaptable to many different kinds of environments. But that's still just evidence, and not proof.
I personally believe the probability of life elsewhere is overwhelming; I think it almost certainly does exist. However, I understand that there is no PROOF of that yet. So I would never say "it's a fact that ET life definitely exists". I personally believe it probably does, but I also know that it it can't be yet considered "fact".
