Space Aliens

Absence of Evidence is not Evidence of Absence

You can't prove a negative, so everyone's speculation on the existence of other intelligent life in the galaxy is equally valid. My sense is that it exists but that it is very distant. Or that it exists but choses (for whatever reason) not to reply to our "Hi, we're here!" messages. Maybe they exist in a different dimension of space-time?


Jules - Never underestimate the power of a lizard.
Uchuck the TuchuckUnless the lizard experiences a Reptile Dysfunction.
Jules' lizard is faking hibernation to avoid confronting her wolf, Tex. I think that counts as Reptile Dysfunction...however, it may also shed light on the fate of the dinosaurs.
WSFAs a species, we arrogantly assume our little blue marble, and it's life forms, interest extraterrestrials. Or, they observe examples like Shillary and go, "Ugh, gross", and move on.
Yes, they could have watched Disney movies, broadcast into space many decades ago and they came to the conclusion that there was no intelligent life on Earth. This could have been reinforced if they did fly-by during the Hillary campaign. If you recall the Star Trek prophecies, we needed to develop warp speed technology before the Vulcans landed.
Jim - There are numerous theories about why nothing's been picked up. We could be living in a part of the galaxy where everyone in other solar systems aren't as advanced as we are and the really advanced civilizations are elsewhere, or perhaps we're just listening to the wrong frequency. I think perhaps aliens have picked up TV broadcasts of old movies and mistaken them for documentaries. Earth has never lost an interplanetary war. They fear us.
They may also fear us because of what their anal probing experiments reveled. Now, I can't even speculate on what those findings are but "Mayor Pete", who practices that same sort of probing might be an alien.
Millerized - First In, First Out. Great explanation.

“First in, last out” solution to theFermi Paradox: what if the first life that reaches interstellar travel capability necessarily eradicates all competition to fuel its own expansion.
So...when they arrive and give us a book called, "How to Serve Man" (Twilight Zone historical documentary), we should not rejoice?
OldAFSarge - There is also the possibility, however remote, that we are indeed alone. There is also the possibility that interstellar travel is, for whatever reason, impossible. We don't know what we don't know.
E=MC2 means that the faster you travel, the more massive you become...
Woodsterman - They're hiding.
Ancient Alien theorists speculate much the same way, same philosophy. It accounts for Kim Jong Un and Hillary. They're hiding among us.
LSP - SETI's not been very successful but there's a lot of UFOs. And Lambeth Palace.
Many people believe that Lambeth Palace, headquarters of the Church of England, is also the headquarters of space aliens in England in the same way that Chappequa, NY is their HQ in the USA. Their centers in Austin, Texas, Roswell, New Mexico, Groom Lake (Area 51), Nevada, Sedona, Arizona and San Francisco, California serve as embassies. I can't dispute it, LSP. There is signifiant evidence. San Francisco and Austin are centers for anal probing, and freakish experiments. Just look at the tragic results in the parades. Clearly not quite human anymore. Many of them migrate to Burning Man in the Nevada Desert, seasonally.

Phone Home?

Where are the Extraterrestrial Civilizations?

Reference the Drake equation and the Fermi paradox.

There have to be those among you who "believe".  And I'm not talking about faith that Hillary Clinton is a lizard with a human skin. That's only speculation at this point.

About 50 years of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) have failed to find anything, even though radio telescopes, receiver techniques, and computational abilities have improved enormously since the early 1960s. All we have discovered is that our galaxy is not teeming with very powerful alien transmitters continuously broadcasting near the 21 cm hydrogen frequency. 

Maybe the answers are at Area 51, but I doubt it.
