Likely?
I would say that the likelihood of there being other life than just on earth is relatively high, certainly higher than the likelihood of the Exodus every happening or the Conquest of Canaan as described in Joshuah or of any prophecy of Jesus standing up to examination.

One could very easily argue that there is much more evidence for a God than there is for life on other planets, let's be honest here.

You might be able to assert that but I doubt highly that you or anyone else could support that position; but what the hell does that have to do with the topic of the thread?

Huh?????
Bolder-dash writes:

There is evidence for life in one form, physical, so that is evidence that there could be life in other forms, meta-physical.

Huh?

That makes no sense at all. How does the existence of physical provide evidence that there is meta-physical?

Re: Huh?????
Good. Glad you understand that.

Now let's take the next baby step.

We have one planet where we have really done much exploration, and in that one sample we find life existing under just about every imaginable environment.

In addition, all of the data so far indicated that the laws of nature and the composition of matter is the same everywhere we look in the universe.

Finally, when we have look around the universe we find that the elements we see in life here and many of the things we associate with life here such as amino acids are common throughout the universe.

As we learn more and more it seems that the planet we live on is not all that unusual.

So, since we know that 100% of the planets we have explored in detail have life, is there some reason to think that life might not be as common elsewhere as here?

Topic?
I'm sorry but what does an of that nonsense have to do with the topic which in case you forgot is "Life on other Planets?"

Is there some reason you never seem to be able to post stuff related to the topic?

Huh? Even if that was true (which has not been shown so far), what does that have to do with the topic?

Huh????? Life on other Planets?
Come on guy. What does any of that have to do with the topic? In case you forgot, we are talking about "Life on other Planets?".

Your belief in some designer or deity is irrelevant, unimportant.

Your definition of chaos is irrelevant, unimportant.

Life on other Planets?

Huh?????
I'm sorry but why can we not conclude that "all chemicals have the same behavior on other planets as they do on Earth" since ALL of the evidence shows that they do?

And in addition, who is saying that abiogenesis will inevitably happen?

So far it looks like all you have are attempts to change the subject and misrepresenting what folk say as usual.

You do understand that there are means of remote testing for things like chemistry, nuclear reactions, physical properties, even things like amino acids and that so far every such test has shown that chemistry and physics are about the same everywhere?

If things behave the same what reason is there to think things will not behave the same?

More missrepresentations?
Bolder-dash writes:

Aliens in space, vibrating strings of infinite size, worm holes, alternative dimensions of existence------Yes

Again, so far no one but you has mentioned any of those things and so it is just another attempt by you to change teh subject.

Life on other Planets?

That is the topic in case you forgot.

Topic and try honesty.

We know as an indisputable fact that life exists on this planet. We also know that there are a vast number of planets out there.

Whether you think life originated naturally, supernaturally or however else why would you think it limited just to this planet?

That's the reason that so many evolutionists would choose to believe there is life on other planets, but be almost rabidly adamant that there is no God?

Sort of makes your claim of being rationally objective kind of weak doesn't it?

God is irrelevant to the topic, unimportant and of no consequence.

In addition, you have not shown that anyone here much less "so many" choose to believe there is life on other planets or that evolutionists are "almost rabidly adamant that there is no God".

Do you ever plan on addressing the topic which is "Life on other Planets" in case you forgot.
