Unanswered questions: universe's purpose and alien life II (General)

My own view: if there is alien life, it will prove absolutely nothing, whether it’s highly sophisticated or only basic. Theists can say that their God in the course of eternity could create as many life forms as he liked, and they can argue among themselves about why he might want to create them. Atheists can say that the more life there is elsewhere, the clearer it is that life can emerge naturally in an infinity of energy and matter, once chance has assembled the ingredients. People with fixed beliefs can always interpret the facts to fit in with those beliefs.
