Humans May Be the Only Intelligent Life in the Universe, If Evolution Has Anything to Say Empty Humans May Be the Only Intelligent Life in the Universe, If Evolution Has Anything to Say

Are we alone in the universe? It comes down to whether intelligence is a probable outcome of natural selection, or an improbable fluke. By definition, probable events occur frequently, improbable events occur rarely — or once. Our evolutionary history shows that many key adaptations — not just intelligence, but complex animals, complex cells, photosynthesis, and life itself — were unique, one-off events, and therefore highly improbable. Our evolution may have been like winning the lottery … only far less likely. ................

infinite universe means infinite earth like planets. Life will happen wherever the conditions apply. whether it will evolve is just a matter of time. There may well be intelligent life out there, they may be intelligent enough not to advertise themselves. anyone who comes is coming to stay

If you work on the assumption that the Universe is infinite with infinite stars then anything is possible.
Somewhere in the Universe another Fatbob5 will be arguing with another bloke called Dean.
Somewhere else Fatbob5 is the PM trying to sort out Brexit B***ocks
Somewhere else Fatbob5 is an actor playing the part of John McClane
Etc
