Most likely not.


People say there is not a chance of any remotely humanoid lifeforms out there in the universe. But the most recent theory seems to hold true with life on earth at least.

That being, creatures that evolve in different places will develop similar adaptations to similar environments and circumstances.

(As an example, this is possibly why bats and birds have wings, or why echidnas and hedgehogs look so similar even though they are extremely distantly related.)

So there is a chance -- albeit slim -- that life on some other planets may follow a vaguely similar design to our own.
