    I believe the Universe is teeming with life, but not intelligent life.

    First of all - it's big, not he's big, the universe is not a person lol.

    Second we can look at what conditions had to happen for our evolution into intelligent beings, and infer from that , that it is highly unlikely those conditions repeated anywhete in the universe.

    I doubt they look anything like bugs or fish. Life forms can only be really defined in biological terms based on the life on Earth. "Life" may not even be organic out there somewhere let alone look anywhere near what we expect :|

    But you know when I read the Daily Mail sometimes, I really really hope that we are not the most intelligent creatures the universe was able to produce...

    Actually it's pretty likely if you have a look at drakes equation? Number of galaxies, stars with planets in orbit, possibly habitable planets and etc likely makes up for the low probabilities of the suitable conditions for intelligent life arising at any of those planets

    I'm sorry for the faults I'm not a native ^^

    If it happened in Earth, why not somewhere else ? Improbable does not mean impossible

    This is really good. An interesting statement.
    But apparently, at recent stages, there were announcements of discoveries of Earth like planets or "Earth twins" or those quite similar to our Earth in some parts of the universe.
    I think that would suggest to us, logically thinking, that actually the conditions you mentioned could be repeated somewhere in the universe, besides our own planet. Or in other words, given those discoveries, the chances of that are increased and that makes it at least a bit more likely.
    Just an idea ... No one has to agree with me.
