Probability is not proof. We have not a single case of life having shown to be any place but here on planet Earth.
Yet still we speculate... and look even harder. No. is just not acceptable is it ?
And what is the question? Is there life beyond Earth in the universe? The answer to that is not "No", but nobody knows.
Is the question is there proof there is life beyond Earth? The answer to that is currently no. But that doesn't mean such proof will never arrive.
