Is there life on other planets?

To all eternity our earth will bear a distinction such as no other planet throughout endless space will enjoy. To all eternity, throuhout all creation, it will be a glorious showpiece to Jehovah God's praise. Not that it will be the only planet that will ever be inhabited, but that it will be the only planet to which the Creator of all good things sent his only-begotten Son to become a man and die sacrificially to recover the planet's inhabitants from sin and its penalty death. It will be the only planet on which Jehovah, by means of his Son Jesus Chist, will have fought the 'war of the great day of God the Almighty' to show his power over all his enemies in heaven and on earth and to vindicate himself as the Universal Sovereign.-Jeremiah 50:25; Psalm 140:7; Acts 4:24. The point being emphasized is this: Never again will it be necessary for God's Son to die sacrificially to recover living creatures from sin and death. Never again will it be necessary for Jehovah God to vindicate himself as Universal Sovereign. These things will have been accomplished once and for all time at the earth. Even if the Creator should at some future time populate other planets-which is something that we do not know-there still would be no need for repetition of Jesus' sacrifice and the vindication of Jehovah's sovereignty. The issues involved will already have been settled forever.-Heb. 9:28; 10:12. There has been much speculation by worldly scientists and others as to whether there is life on other planets at the present time. Little is known for sure. The Bible is definite in showing that there are vast numbers of spirit creatures in existence, but it does not reveal whether there are physical creatures on other planets.-Rev. 5:11; Matt. 26:53.Source(s): jw.org

Nobody knows for sure but we have found thousands of planets in the Goldilock's zone that could potentially support life. We just don't have the means actually look at those planets to know if any is actually there.

Nobody knows but God. Whether there are or are not doesn't make the slightest difference in God's relationship with humans on this planet.

No. The earth is for men. Heaven is for God.

Of course there is. God has placed his human children on countless worlds.

If you consider the immense size of the universe it would be pretty unlikely that life ONLY evolved on this one planet.

Probably. That's about all we can say. No one has found confirmed evidence. What we know is that it seems to be quite common for stars to have planets. There are billions of stars in this galaxy. There are billions of galaxies. Even if it is relatively rare that a planet would be in the perfect goldilocks zone for temperature, have the right magnetosphere to protect the planet from radiation, and has the right atmosphere and the right amount of everything … even if all of that is rare, the billions times billions of chances means the odds that not just life, but intelligent life, exists somewhere out there is virtually 100%.
And we've found out that even on our own planet, extremeophile life is pretty common. In environments we used to think nothing could live, we've found life. Sometimes complex life. Now we probably couldn't get intelligent life in an extreme environment, but life's resilience means we shouldn't make assumptions and rule it out prematurely.
All that said, we also need to stay modest. In science, we don't say a thing is true when it's just probable. We wait for evidence to show it's true. We haven't found life on other planets yet. Or even solid proof of PAST life.

I believe it very rare though.
