    Given that the most recent studies think there's something like 17,000,000,000 planets in the Milky Way Galaxy alone, the probability that life ONLY exists on Terra is pretty much 0. I forget the name of the equation but it pretty much says the odds are far greater for life to be prevalent in the universe, rather than rare.

    That number, 17 billion planets is way, way off... As far as we can tell there are approx. 200 billion stars in the Milky Way. Each Star could have multiple planets around it, each planet could have multiple moons. I'd be shocked if there were less than 1 trillion planets/moons in the milky way alone, let alone the Universe where there are more galaxies than grains of sand on all the beaches of earth.

    The 17 billion planets you got was likely from a new guess at how many planets there are in the Milky Way that were roughly earth sized, rocky and in the habitable zone of their parent star.

    Look at it this way, The one star system we can readily observe has 8 planets, 4 dwarf planets, and 174 moons orbiting those planets. That's over 180 celestial bodies orbiting ONE star.
    Rudimentary creatures of blood and flesh. You touch my mind, fumbling in ignorance, incapable of understanding.
    You exist because we allow it, and you will end because we demand it.

    80% of the galaxy is totally inhospitable, too violent for life to develop, there are no Aliens out there it's just us, where are they? There's been plenty of time for them to visit us and they haven't, never have and never will.

    Stop dreaming people WE ARE ALONE! Now go back and watch some Star trek if you want to see some lol.

    If we're really, really, really, really lucky we might find something resembling a mushroom.

    This is almost word-for-word what went through my mind when I read the thread title.

    It's just common sense. Just because it has happened doesnt mean it will happen again. I'll give you a similar example. Id guess youre younger than 100? The Earth is 4.5 billion years old which is astronomic compared to your age. It's also quite big. Does that mean there was another you in the past not related to you but almost a perfect copy in every way? Even if millions of billions of years pass, there wont be another you on Earth.

    Just because intelligent life exists on earth doesnt mean it exists anywhere else. Life isn't just some piece of rock that starts splitting and evolving all of a sudden. If you had any idea how complicated even the simplest virus is you wouldnt think it's something thats just bound to happen in right conditions. Not only that but intelligence doesnt have to happen at all. Life on Earth lasted for billions or years, maybe 10th of the age of the universe (which is extremely lucky, considering all the natural disasters that could have wiped it out), if not more before it happened and it hasn't been a straightforward progress either. Evolution is ADAPTION not progress. It doesnt mean the life gets better, it just adapts better. It might even make humans dumber in the future if it has advantages for reproducing..

    It is 17billion planets in our galaxy that is placed at the correct distance from the sun for life as we know it to develop... and yet that's only our galaxy... there is like 17billion galaxy and more more more more more... if there is only 1 planet with life it would be retarded

    It exists black holes that are 300million times bigger than our solar system....

    Mind fuck initiated

    and yes we have more than 1 sun in the galaxy. we live in a galaxy called the milky way.
