Those planets that are very large are gas giants, often referred to as Hot Jupiters, where even the scientists do not believe that life in any form could exist. When they search for planets they believe could be habitable, they are looking for planets of similar size to the Earth. and those at a distance from their star which would provide a habitable temperature, so far they have found none. Of course, they have only found ~200 bodies that they refer to as planets, so it could be argued that they will find many more, but it really doesn't matter whether they do or not, because if by some fluke they did find a planet exactly like the Earth, it will be so distant that science will never be able to find a means to travel there to explore it, therefore will never find any life on it. Still, that will never prevent the machinations that they will theorize.
For the time period that we have been seriously looking for other planets it seems that your remarks are a bit premature - another earth-like planet recently -

New super-earth detected within the habitable zone of a nearby star

and your estimate (~200) is a factor of ten out as of now -

11 New Alien Solar Systems Crammed with Exoplanets : Discovery News

Regarding the immensity of the universe and how long we have actually been looking then it is quite justifiable to assume that many planets similar to earth will exist elsewhere with the possibility of life forming as well.

Unless we do discover a mechanism for travelling to far distant worlds - which is possible - then perhaps we will not be going to them or being visited for a very long time. I think it is just part of the natural human ego-centrism (that we daily apply to other creatures) to think we are alone and somehow the endpoint of evolution or some other plan.



ps Just found the estimated number of planets (in our galaxy alone) -

and this -

Personally I think it is purely a timescale issue - approximately 14 billion years from start of our universe and the short timescale we have been emitting radiation and looking for it - what are the chances of other civilisations being within range?

You believe in something that you have never seen...

Perhaps you are among some who now won't be so quick to judge others who do the same

Do you believe in aliens?-real-alien.jpg

More seriously, humans are in the minority of life forms here. More live in water, dolphins are very intelligent as well.
I believe in air and wind too, although I have never seen either.

Belief is not necessarily based on absolute substantial evidence. Belief in aliens is based on probability, statistics, and biology. I can stipulate aliens exist but I may not assert it as a fact.

You can't prove they do or don't exist.
It is within the realm of possibility.
