As discussed in another topic, knowing that there is life on Earth in no way allows us to extrapolate to other planets and say sure there is life on
any of them. We could very easily be the only planet in the entire universe with life on it, just as we are the only planet in the entire universe
that is the third planet orbiting around our Sun. We are unique in an infinite number of ways, and that uniqueness might carry over to being the only
one where a bunch of dead chemicals happened to stick together and create a living thing. Or however life happens. We really don't know.
Let me explain to you why your view is illogical.
Now, if we are the only planet currently housing life, then there must be a deity involved. Since I see no evidence of deitys (regardless of how many
people demand there are), then we must assume physics works.
Chemical reactions is not some abstract creative process..it is a constant. As you suggested in a laymans way, a bunch of chems stuck together and
But wherever those chemicals exist, then the same opportunity happens
So consider then some cold hard math
You got say a billion life potential planets (this is insanely conservative, but will use a very low number to make it simple). you then got a billion
chances today of these or similar chemical reactions (simple science) to occur as it did on earth
Yesterday you had a billion chances also...2 days, 2 billion chances.
Give the age of the universe...each day giving a billion chances...you got a pretty outstanding number that would crash my calculator trying to figure
Life is an absolute out there..the only..only possibility that this is not simply the case is if the bible is accurate and we are in a 6000 year old
universe and most of the stars are just little balls of light god put up there for nice evening views..otherwise we live in a tiny bubble.
Again, the only big question seems to be, from contemporary physicist genius to crystal gazing moron is are aliens visiting us. The are they even out
there question has been pushed down to the twits and religious to debate...but math solved the overall question.
