    If I showed you a large box would you be able to claim definitively that there wasn't a baseball inside it? No, you couldn't, because you do not know what's in the box, much the same as we do not know what resides within the vast, vast majority of the observable sphere of the universe.
    I apologize if reading comprehension is not your forte.
    Again, I said "Every scientific observation so far."

    I'll be as clear as I can:

    As far as our telescopes can see, and as far as we can measure the levels of hydrogen, carbon, and oxygen on other planets and their distance from stars, there has not yet been an inhabitable planet as far as we can observe.

    My original point to the OP stands, that is doesn't really matter if there are "aliens" out there somewhere in the universe. The distance for travel to or from is virtually insurmountable... for all purposes related to us in the next several hundred years, as a species it's best to assume we're alone on this tiny blue speck.

    Exactly. But tell that to someone from the 1600's.

    It is wrong to make an assumption that this is fact...

    We are going to send a probe on a nearby moon with ice covered water to see if there is life....WE DON'T KNOW YET and this is a VERY close neighbor.

    Sorry, but we can measure hydrogen, carbon, and oxygen at very great distances.

    Yes, we are sending a probe to earths moon to look for possible ice, but not to look for life.

    Saturn? A planet like that could never sustain intelligent life forms, hopefully however, even some bacteria will be an absolute scientific breakthrough.
