Scientists tell us our sun is just a minor star and our solar system a minor part of out galaxy, not the center of it at all, and our galaxy is a very small part of the universe. Yet when it comes to searching for life in the universe, why do they only search for life that is virtually identical to earth life?
It seems a bit arrogant to assume that life on this one planet is the pattern for life everywhere in the universe as if we invented life and are in charge of it. Just because life here is carbon based and needs lots of water doesn’t mean that is true everywhere. Yet, when looking for planets that may have life, scientists look only at planets very similar to earth. The so called “M” class planets.
The life force is a very powerful force. Look at the totally unexpected places where life has been found on earth.
So that force will find a way, in time, to create life from whatever raw material is available. Perhaps even in the stars themselves.
