I've never posted anything like saying extraterrestrial life "is a certain probability", can you provide a quote? I've always posted there is no evidence for extraterrestrial life so belief in aliens is like belief in God; based on faith and not science.Sorry, I didn't mean to hurt your feelings. I don't know whether there is alien life out there or not. But you already said there is a certain probability. Are you now taking that back.
I favor all science; looking for alien life is a good idea. Belief in alien life is like belief in dragons, elves and magic.All I am saying that if we develop the technology for travel even within our own solar system we can look and see and that is a better chance than looking for evidence of the existence of a god. Are you claiming to know where a god hangs out that we can look and see? You get very riled up about these speculative things. Don't take it so seriously.
