If we start with an infinite universe, then there is life on other planets. Name off whatever odds you want of it happening and those odds become infinity/x. You can then narrow it down to just the known universe if you want. I quickly googled it and came up with about 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars estimated to exist within our knowledge. What are the chances that two of those stars support life? I'd say pretty high.
