We are alone
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.
