Extraterrestrial Life

Do you agree with the following statement? It was included in an email that I regularly receive from New Scientist ..

The astrophysicist who made the statement also mused that … We might turn out to be a form of life as primitive and common in the cosmos as ants are in a kitchen. 

Just out of curiosity … what are your thoughts? Do you think extraterrestrial life will be discovered in your lifetime? And if so, will it be as described by the astrophysicist — or do you speculate that it will be far advanced? How do you think such a discovery would jive with the religiously-oriented?

Inquiring minds want to know.
