Haven’t watched the video yet, but never mind life on other planets - what about time travel? The woman in the video still is surely Amy Winehouse. In 1962.

It took me a few interviews to remember that to these people the phrase “other planets” means the other planets in our solar system. These days it’s commonly accepted (at least by those who bother to care about the topic) that the set of “other planets” is enormous (trillions? orders of magnitude more?) and therefore people should be more willing to accept that it’s very likely there’s life on other planets.

Unless your argument is “the Bible says nah” then I guess there’s nothing to debate or discuss.
