I subscribe to the first postulate because Life is far to complex to arise spontaneously.
This is the verdict of mathematics given the size and age of the Universe.
The idea aliens exist is held mostly by Atheist materialists who believe in Evolution and spontaneous generation/ abiogenesis.
IMO those are archaic fallacies that originated in times of ignorance to how complex life is.
In short the idea of ‘a simple cell’ is a complete myth.
There is no such thing.
We know this now due to scientific advances in biology and tech.
The Multiverse theory is primarily an attempt to rescue materialism from the mathematical absurdity of their claim Life arose spontaneously *even once* in the universe.
