By "similarity in environment" I assume you mean similar to our =
environment.
That is a non-sequitur. Because intelligent life arose from an =
environment
such as ours it doesn't follow that all intelligent life must evolve =
from a
similar environment.

By "similarity in environment" I assume you mean =similar=20to our environment.
That is a non-sequitur.  Because intelligent =life=20arose from an environment
such as ours it doesn't follow that all =intelligent=20life must evolve from a
similar environment.
