It all depends on how Earth-like you want a planet to be. An Earth-size
planet with two smaller moons might develop a similar biosphere, or maybe it
wouldn't. Who knows?
There are QUADRILLIONS of stars out there, and we have only ONE solar system
in our sample of well-known solar systems. Any comments on what's rare and
what's common out there are grossly premature and outrageously speculative,
to say the least.

I can certainly imagine an "alien civilization" that never goes cyber, that
even persists for millions of years in a lifestyle akin to that of
pre-Columbian native Americans--much as humanity existed for the 2 million
years preceding the advent of agriculture. All they have to do is sacrifice
the 1% of their juvenile population that displays any kind of intelligence...

Long ago I read a story about an alien civilization of morons who, simply
because the civilization had persisted tens of millions of years, had finally
developed (or should I say stumbled on) space travel, went sailing among the
stars and eventually made their way to Earth--where they were all promptly
sold the Brooklyn Bridge...
So--who knows WHAT aliens would do if they came here? This sounds
suspiciously like the televangelists who always know what GOD is thinking
about, what GOD wants, and what GOD would do in any particular situation, as
if they are in constant contact with God by telephone. Somehow,
unsurprisingly, God invariably comes out in support of the televangelists!
And--who says memories are permanently erasable, except by trauma or death?

Amen to that!
