Alien Life is Impossible

It has been held in belief that the Earth is ordinary,


not special in anyway.  

So if we are an ordinary, typical planet,

 then there must be perhaps millions of other "Earth's"

 throughout the broad expanse of the universe.   

And among those millions of other "typical" earth-like planets,
surely there is an abundance of alien life,

although perhaps in different stages of evolution

and intellectual advancements.

But over the last several years scientist have come to find we are NOT typical.  

We are not ordinary.

And in fact, the extreme odds by which an inhabitable planet

 such as Earth to exist teeming life are infinitesimally small. 

Recently, Professor Brian Cox, told the BBC in an interview

 that without a doubt,

 He confirms that the odds of life are so great that it is impossible.  

We, here on Earth, are a fluke. 

Never to be repeated, anywhere or any time.

The biological process which lead to intelligent life on earth was a fluke that is unlikely to have been repeated anywhere else in the universe, claims Professor Brian Cox

In this article, Professor Cox claims:    A series of 'evolutionary bottlenecks' (is to blame) for the lack of extraterrestrial life on other planets, despite there being a mind-bogglingly vast number of them in the galaxy.

Humanity miraculously overcame them in a chance binding of two single cells merging somewhere in the mists of time, he said.

'There is only one advanced technological civilisation in this galaxy and there has only ever been one - and that's us. We are unique.

'It's a dizzying thought. There are billions of planets out there, surely there must have been a second genesis?

'But we must be careful because the story of life on this planet shows that the transition from single-celled life to complex life may not have been inevitable.'

Professor Brian Cox has it almost correct. 

The odds of life appearing anywhere in the universe 

occurring by random processes 

IS impossible.  

And yet here we are.

We are unique.

     But we are not a fluke.
