  Extraterrestrial life & UFOs
The existence of life on Earth does not imply anything for the probability of life existing elsewhere, because if life did not exist on Earth, we would not exist to observe it (this observer effect is known as the anthropic principle).
But if life arose independently on another body in our solar system, and planetary systems are the rule, not the exception, then life must be abundant in the universe.
But there was another good reason to keep the evidence for extraterrestrial life a secret: the chance for the American military to gain a technological edge over other nations by reverse-engineering and duplicating the alien technology.

As for life beyond the solar system, the colossal distances involved made it simply unreachable, and in any case, no one knew for sure if other stars had planets at all, far less living planets.

Given the serendipitous nature of mutations and major external influences, divergionists would argue that even if life is constrained to having essentially just one biochemical basis, evolution, in its blind exploration of all biological options, will generate across the vastness of space and time every conceivable, viable type of organism.
Some biologists believe that wherever life occurs it will use at least some of the same molecules, like sugars, and therefore have some similar biosynthetic pathways, such as the citric acid cycle used to burn sugar and yield energy.
Our very definitions of life might need to be reexamined (see life, nature of).

 Cosmic Search Vol. 1, No. 3 - Extraterrestrial Life: Where is Everybody?
Without ignoring the possibility that totally unearthly life forms could exist in the universe, our search for extraterrestrial life will be of considerably less speculative nature if we restrict it to biological forms known, beyond the shadow of a doubt, to exist in the universe-namely, creatures on Planet Earth, built from carbon-containing molecules and water.
In the absence of any clear evidence for or against the occurrence of extraterrestrial life forms, scientists had to begin their search by taking recourse to logical reasoning based on statistics, the game of juggling the odds of various astrophysical, biological, and social developments in Creation which are presumably necessary to biological and civilizing evolution.
Thus, life must have originated hard and fast as soon as conditions were right-additional evidence for its suspected abundance in the universe-but it took many billions of years to evolve through its random processes of mutation and selection.

Given the narrow parameters required for the development of life in outer space, coupled with the exceedingly harsh environments encountered there, there is an inherent statistical unlikelihood of any planet capable of producing life which could develop intergalactic travel.
It is God Himself with his angels, fixed and fallen, not men" from another planet who represent life in outer space and which are often associated with the stars in Scripture, and who have their probable habitation among the stars (planets) and who are the visiting advocates of Earth.

If life did not occur on other parts of the Universe besides Earth, then we will not be able to restore the whole generation of the Universe to enhance our belief on the existence of living organisms on other worlds besides Earth.
If life did not take place on other parts of the Universe besides Earth, then, it is very improbable that in the future we can find living beings in those places, where living organisms were never formed.

This new mechanism for volcanism is key to these new ideas of where life is. The idea that the interior of massive objects can be heated to molten conditions just by its orbital motion suggests that the interior may also be heated by spinning.

As possible evidence for extraterrestrial life, he quotes the Talmudic teaching (Avoda Zara 3b) that "God flies through 18,000 worlds." Since they require His providence, we may assume that they are inhabited.
Since any extraterrestrial life would neither have free will nor be able to serve a creature having free will (as terrestrial animals and plants serve a terrestrial man), they would have no reason for existing and therefore be totally superfluous.

While all accept that intelligent life exists (if only human), many may be at odds with the assumption that humans are ensouled, or uncertain as to what it may mean.
These souls orchestrate the behavior of these life forms so that they all act much alike, and (in the case of animals) their actions are heavily driven by fear.

Not to mention the time necessary for the formation of life's indispensable chemical compounds, such as water, numerous compounds of carbon and oxygen, and, as far as possible, those of an atmosphere, it is also necessary to wait for the patient diffusion of the more simple life forms.
The logic of a statistical theory (for example, the kinetic theory of gas) is to deduce an average behavior for a larger scale on the basis of one's knowledge of known smaller-scale processes (for example, the principles that regulate the motion of a particle).
I believe that the theme of possible intelligent life of extraterrestrial origin, i.e., intelligent life outside the experience of unity of the human family common to the entire biblical message, represents one of the major speculative efforts facing Christian theology.

 UFOs AND EXTRATERRESTRIAL LIFE
Many feel that simple forms of plant life may well prevail;[12] others have not entirely ruled out the existence of intelligent life, If UFOs were from Mars or Venus--despite the dis- couraging surface conditions--there would be advantage- ous times, or locations in their respective orbits, to launch space probes or manned interplanetary vehicles.
because either the life span or the star is judged insufficient for life to develop or because the luminosity is so low that planets, if any would have to orbit in a very restrictive band around the star.
Attempt- ing to predict the occurrence of intelligent life on planets of other stars is a far more difficult task.[8] This is because of a much smaller amount of observable scientific data, in lieu of which theory must be sub- stituted.
