Odds are that there is other life within the universe. How can there not be? But to calculate it or try to even get close with the Drake equation is just a guess. There's too many unknowns. Too many variables. But even if extraterrestrial life can be proven, why would that have any effect on the Bible? How would that be relevant? After all doesn't the Bible speak of ALL creation? Did God just make the Earth and stop?
Just like Drake's equations, there's far too many unknowns to figure out God's plan for the rest of the universe as we "intelligent" folk sit here on Topix not even being able to come to any agreement as to what happened here on this ball of dirt.
If there is a god , there is multiple abundant life of that I have no doubt.
My calculation does not assume there is any help.
So Al if life does have help.
It should be vast and abundant.
And if it is not, god is a poor thinker.
After all if life was created , the god is a farmer.
