I believe it is quite unreasonable and foolish to assume that we (meaning all of Earth's life) are the only form of life in this vast system of planets and stars. What do you guys think?

My argument goes as follows...

There are literally, BILLIONS of galaxies with BILLIONS of stars with BILLIONS of planets. And within the solarsystems are planets. Those planets hold water and everything needed to support life. In fact ALH 84001, a meteorite from Mars held possible life. How? It possibly carried nanobacteria fossils in carbonate materials. No other meteorites contained said fossils. Possible life? Yes.

Did you also know Europa has thin ice layers? Water harbors life and ice is solid water.

I agree why would God just make one planet with life forms on it and have trillions of more planets and galaxies without? just like we are exploring other planets I grantee other planets are exploring us. Now, should be scared or what, because we have no ideal if the other life forms are hostile or not. We'll never know until that time truly comes and I do believe it can happen an probably has happened before.

Am I missing something or is Con presenting Pro evidence?

I asked God that once. He said," I am out here".
