I'd like to think there is but the universe they say is around 14-15 billion years old and it took earth around 3 billion to get where it is now.
So that's a fair whack out of time the universe existed so there might not be another set of circumstances out there which have produced life and stability the same as the circumstances which produced the earth.
Maybe we're it and the universe is dispersing now so less new planets are forming.
Or maybe there were more planets with life closer to the start of the universe before earth existed. Say 5-7 billion years ago and those planets and solar systems are long gone now.
Perhaps we were late to the party.
What do you think?
(Apologies on my vague facts. I'm not a scientist or anything)

I believe that primitive life is common but intelligent life is rare. Most life forms in outer space is probably microbial but a handful of them may be advanced enough to reach us. I bet there are really intelligent life forms out there but to search and contact them could end in our own destruction.2

Nah.. But other stupid life exists elsewhere in the universe for sure.
We can't be the only ones.1
