In a word - meh.

We can, or soon will be able to, detect oxygen in the atmosphere of a planet 6 light-years away. Given that free oxygen is highly reactive and would therefore oxidize rocks in short order, it is good evidence of the presence of our kind of life.

As for detecting intelligent life, I would say that the 90%+ of the Internet that is cat videos, "influencer" videos, p0rn, or spam argues against their being any intelligent life on Earth.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
