I just think it's impossible to be alone because of the size of the universe.... Earth-like planets are rare but not that rare.

Exactly. And in addition to that, who's to say that other biological beings follow the entirety of the rules that beings on Earth follow; we only know what can exist on this planet (and maybe the Moon and Mars), and while we do understand that, on an elemental level, certain things can't exist in certain places, who's to say there isn't a whole other periodic table's worth of elements that other beings in entirely different environments are composed of? It really is terrifying to think of, just how many possibilities there are in the universe.

Not to mention assuming a planet has to be like ours to have life is a bit pretentious of us as a species isn't it?

Well I assume some planets must have Dinosaur like creatures, or some that would be beyond our wildest comprehentions......

Yep, exactly, I'd love to see beyond my years to what future space exploration brings.....

Besides,there no har evedince that says there need to be earthlike conditions for life. For all we know, there could be a species of life out there that breathes chlorine and drinks mercury.

Size is not the only criterion for life

It's not the size of the biosphere, but the climate of the biosphere
If you know what I mean...
