Jim, you gotta be joking, right?  Go outside some clear night and look around.  Look at all those stars.  Most of 'em have planets the way I hear and a bunch of 'em have to have something on it that is alive.

Thing is, don't expect 'em to look any thing like us, don't expect 'em to live on what we do, and don't expect 'em to speak English.

 

Leftists can't tell right from wrong.

Harley Spirit, your analysis is basically correct: the mathematical formalism for your statement appears below in the Drake Equation, first proposed by Friar Samuel Drake in 1919. 

 

Courtesy Wikipedia.

 

The Drake equation states that:

N = R^{\ast} \cdot f_p \cdot n_e \cdot f_{\ell} \cdot f_i \cdot f_c \cdot L

where:

N = the number of civilizations in our galaxy with which communication might be possible;

and

R* = the average rate of star formation per year in our galaxyfp = the fraction of those stars that have planetsne = the average number of planets that can potentially support life per star that has planetsf? = the fraction of the above that actually go on to develop life at some pointfi = the fraction of the above that actually go on to develop intelligent lifefc = the fraction of civilizations that develop a technology that releases detectable signs of their existence into spaceL = the length of time for which such civilizations release detectable signals into space[4]

Rate at which life formed from NON-LIVING chemistry. ONCE, 4 BILLION YEARS AGO. It's never been observed or replicated since !
