We can only deduce this from observing what type of star supports intelligent life AS WE KNOW IT. We don't know jack diddly squat about any other forms of life that may or may not exist

You said all I have to do is look in a mirror or in the sky....Tell me again how our observations of the processes that support life here on Earth dictate what processes CAN support theoretical lifeforms?
Let's say we have an arsenic based life form....Would our current conditions here support that life form?

I am not sure you know what the definition of a fact is. I went ahead and got a pen and paper, but when I tried to right down your logic the paper killed itself.
A fact (derived from the Latin factum, see below) is something that has really occurred or is actually the case. The usual test for a statement of fact is verifiability, that is whether it can be proven to correspond to experience. Standard reference works are often used to check facts. Scientific facts are verified by repeatable experiments.
You are spouting philosophical viewpoints which shouldn't be applied to facts. There are actual, verifiable scientific facts that do not seem to change and no matter who did the measurements over that last few hundred years came to the same general result. These are called "Constants" So you are either extremely confused about science in general and how it works, or have intentionally convoluted the debate.
if there were no facts or constants in science we would have never made it to and landed on the moon, much less mars.edit on 5-9-2013 by raymundoko because: (no reason given)

Ra on the other hand has a hand in everything. I've recognized him in a lot of channelings, most notably Ramtha (Channeled authority for "what the Bleep") and he is known (and described as such in the movie) as "lord of the Wind"
