The entire history of this planet and humanity gets along quite swimmingly without ever even one single alien.
Though there may be some relevance to the Panspermia argument, the whole "intelligent design" concept is fairly ludicrous.
Who would design something on purpose that communicates, eats, drinks and breathes all out of the same hole?
Does everyone not realize how stupid that is?
At least cetaceans (whales, porpoises) have a separate hole to breathe so they don't choke to death on Doritos, a fish bone, or something else
An then our sex organs are not only centers for pleasure and procreation, but also sewage processing facilities?
Who designs a waste disposal system to run through a playground?
That's only a small portion.
Most other animals don't require all the caregiving we get due to our utter and complete helplessness that we get. They hatch, pupate, get squirted
out, and go on their merry ways out into the great grand wild to kill, be killed, eat, breed prosper and die. Many of these are even community
animals, so, as far as mutual cooperation and social benefits of community go for arguments in favor of humanity, other animals flock, swim, swarm,
and run together too.
Our big brains are wonderful, sure, and we've got these amazing dexterous hands, but, otherwise, the rest of the body plan totally sucks. Even as
fully formed adults, without tools to cheat our way in the wild or just life, we're essentially near as helpless as plants.
Intelligent design? Hilarious.
