He's actually wrong. We have no idea how common or uncommon live actually is. We could be a unicorn fart that spontaneously formed into another unicorn, or planets like Earth could be as common as every twentieth solar system. We have no way of knowing one way or another, so the scientific response is "we don't know, we need more data."

He's being extremely unscientific here. He's allowing his own bias to color his opinion. That's his wishful thinking. It's not based on any actual science.

So when he says "You need a slightly bigger sample", he is in fact NOT referring to data?

this is what i'm saying, i dont expect there to be aliens or mars or anywhere ******* near the milky way maybe, but in the entire universe, yeah there has to be life
User avatar #18 to #13 - bostpost (08/07/2013) [-]
There's definitely life in the Milky Way. She has such a mild cosmic atmosphere and would be our one of out best 'first' shot at finding life. If we found life on mars, it would almost be like Earth's little cousin because we are 1 planet away for god's sake. They wouldn't be seen as alien life because we are so related cosmically.

Life arose on earth about as soon as it was possible. It would make for a reasonable argument then that life when the conditions are right are pretty likely. Complex life is a different argument. Considering how many stars there are, and how many planets orbit those stars and the fact that water is the second most common molecule in the universe, other earth like planets is not very unlikely.

The odds of there not being life out there are so small that it might as well be impossible.

Think about it. There is estimated to be 1 septillion stars in the Universe. That's 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. Every single one of those stars could potentially hold planets. A great number of them probably hold multiple planets much like our own home star. Even if every one of those stars held only 1 planet, that would still be 1 septillion chances for life to spring up. To say that not one of those planets developed life on it is completely ridiculous. Like I said, it might as well be impossible.

I personally believe that there is life literally EVERYWHERE out there. We just gotta know where to look.

Sometimes i think the greatest proof of life somewhere else in the universe is that they havent tried making contact with us

but thats just my opinion

There are over 200 billion stars in our galaxy alone, and more than half of those have planets. There are over 400 billion galaxies in the observable universe, some of the larger galaxies are reported to have more than a trillion stars in them. People need to realize that the Universe is infinitely big to our tiny minds, that literally anything could exist given the size of the Universe, of course there is life. But the real question is, are they advanced enough to get to us, or send us a message? The only way to find out is to send messages and hope for a peaceful response. Of course the rarest form of life are beings like us, who have the ability to distinguish between right and wrong and able to think for themselves, rather than relying upon instinct. Most common would be micro-organisms. There is a moon in our solar system orbiting Jupiter, named Europa, Its surface is made up of ice water, and geysers shoot liquid water hundreds of thousands of miles into space, which suggests the moon has an active core, and under that ice, scientists believe could exist life, not intelligent mind you, but micro-organisms like bacteria. And Genesis in more than one place in this solar system would be a scientific breakthrough, it would revolutionize everything and would show us life is a whole hell of a lot more common than we believe.

but you cannot base science off of speculation. you can only base it off empirical evidence. we don't even have the ability to find out the statistical chance of it because their is so much we don't know about the origins of life and we only have a single sample to base it off. the evidence is inconclusive, their is no evidence one way or the other.

Except for the fact that we already know there are planets out there that are similar to Earth and are entirely capable of supporting life. That's evidence enough that there's a good chance, even if we can't see it up close yet.

if you multiply the number of stars in our galaxy by the number of galaxies in the Universe, you get approximately 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. That’s a septillion stars. And more galaxies are being discovered every year, ,so obviously the number is most likely much bigger.
Now there are about 1.7 planets per star, so thats 1,700,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 planets. If theres on in a TRILLION chance there could be life, that leaves nearly a trillion planets with life on it.

Just to put it into perspective...

Different links give dif numbers, but no matter which site you go to, and which numbers you use, it still always boils down to about a trillion planets with life on it, if theres a 1 in a trillion chance.

<----Aliens face when they discover the history of intelligent life on this planet.   
   
Seriously, a little bit under 12 years ago, humans destroyed two buildings use planes(that they were on), the retribution for that was the destruction of two countries. A little bit over 20 years ago, a military power in the Middle Eastern area of the world created a plan that if they were to begin losing a war, they would fire off their entire nuclear arsenal in an attempt to take their enemies with them. Around 60 years ago, we detonated nuclear weapons in our only atmosphere, on two cities to win a war.  Around 70 years ago, humans attempted to commit genocide on their own kind. 150 years ago, the current most powerful military power on the planet was enslaving other humans based on skin pigment. Around 800 years ago, a man in the Asian part of the world had 1,700,000+ people killed in slightly over an hour.    
   
And, my personal favorite(Just for the shear balls it took) 2000 years ago, we nailed the alleged son of an omnipotent and omniscient God, to a piece of wood. Now, would you try to talk with this species? Or worse, declare war against them? Mankind, isn't the good everything, not the fastest, not the strongest, and definitely not the nicest. But we are very, very, good at war, and we like, what are good at.. Mankind, is not to be 						******					 with.

Fun fact: If a colony of aliens 64 billion light-years away from Earth looked through a telescope at us, they would most likely see dinosaurs roaming around. Just thought I would share.
User avatar #154 to #118 - Mortuus ONLINE (08/08/2013) [-]
Earth's estimated age is nowhere near 64 billion years old. Dinosaurs only came around about 100-200 million years ago.

I don't believe that's possible.
User avatar #32 - xzynth (08/07/2013) [-]
This is how I see it: even if the odds for life on another planet is tiny, say 0.000000001, and therefore unlikely to find life on the first planet you are looking on. There is still (mathematically speaking) bound to be some planets inhabiting life due to the fact that even if its only life on 1 in 10 billions planets, you should find life on some if you search more than 10 billion planets. (sorry for bad grammar, not a primary)
