Are we all aliens?

I don't find it hard to accept that life evolved from something like a single DNA strand or single celled thing all the way into a person.  Way too much evedence to suggest otherwise.  I have however always struggled with how that first DNA strand or single celled thing came into being.   I am sure it did however happen naturally some how and somewhere.   I have often thought it was just about as plausible that it developed elswhere in the universe and ended up here as a cosmic stowaway in commet water or meteor as it was plausible that it happend here on earth since the universe is a lot bigger place with lots of wacky events going on.   Apparently Nasa is going to have a news conference today at 2pm central time to anounce some findings.  I don't think they will be mind blowing but they will likely be relavant to life potentially existing in other parts of the  universe.

It is unlikely that we are alone in the Universe. Such a belief feels rooted in same ethnocentrism as the past dogma of a geocentric universe.

If strong evidence of life is discovered elsewhere, how long will it take for people to change their beliefs? It would mean we are no longer special.
