Many people think the Privileged Planet Principle only addresses the extreme rarity
of the conditions necessary for life on earth. This video shows that there is
another level of 'privileged observation', on top of rarity, that makes
the earth 'additionally extraordinary' in this universe:

Probability For Life On Earth - List of Parameters, References, and Math - Hugh Ross

Probability for occurrence of all 322 parameters =10^388
Dependency factors estimate =10^96
Longevity requirements estimate =10^14
Probability for occurrence of all 322 parameters = 10^304
Maximum possible number of life support bodies in universe =10^22

Thus, less than 1 chance in 10^282 (million trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion) exists that even one such life-support body would occur anywhere in the universe without invoking divine miracles.

Dr. Hugh Ross, and his team, have now drastically refined this probability of 1 in 10^304 to a staggering probability of 1 in 10^1054:

Does the Probability for ETI = 1?
Excerpt; On the Reasons To Believe website we document that the probability a randomly selected planet would possess all the characteristics intelligent life requires is less than 10^-304. A recent update that will be published with my next book, Hidden Purposes: Why the Universe Is the Way It Is, puts that probability at 10^-1054.
