“There is a video on youtube that starts out with a pic of a mountain in India maybe then slowly pans out to around 13 BILLION light years away.
yea the odds of us being the only sentient beings are pretty slim...”
Lots of possibilities in all of that, Space and Time.
But yes, at some point in time and space in our known universe, there are, have been, or will be other planets with sentient life.
No doubt about that.
The article has a point about the MANY variables that all came together to allow the miracle of life to be created on Earth.
We truly are a unique.....like billions to one odds.
BUT the universe is frigging HUGE.
Life MUST exist elsewhere, if it happened here it happened there as well.
Just looked it up, 8.7 million species of life on Earth with only one being truly sentient.
that drops the odds a bit but again the universe is HUGE.
Since theres no evidence of that, there is plenty of doubt.
