    Raises the question of how old the system is and whether it's been cleaned up by Jovian flak absorbers.

    If there's even a microbe, it's a huge deal.
    But my guess is, we'll find that here in our backyard

    Over all of my years of interest in physics, philosophy, astronomy, art and knowledge in general, I am always lead to the thought that our universe is a machine for creating life. That may be just a bio-centric view of things, but it is the only one that allows for the universe to reflect upon itself. I mean have we seen anything in the universe that has the complexity and power of the mind? No. Consciousness is the most sophisticated expression that we have observed in the universe thus far. Just seems the natural conclusion that there should be trillions of biological variants, whether carbon based, silicon, or other life forms in the universe.

    I am certain we will find life elsewhere. Even if we are to play the improbable odds that gave earth life, the universe is so big as to make it inevitable that it does, or will exist elsewhere.

    I stop short of speaking about finding "intelligent" life, but life, I'm hardly going to be shocked if we find something alien locally .
    I would be shocked to hear ,say ,the Big G at the Gates tell me, "Yep, I made all of it, and only put life in one place. The rest was window dressing that got out of hand."

    Yep. The work they do, and discoveries they make are pretty significant if you aren't retarded. I mean, an insect wouldn't care if we showed it a cell phone. That doesn't mean the cell phone is insignificant.
