Where are all the aliens? | Stephen Webb

I saw a UFO once. I was eight or nine, playing in the street with a friend
who was a couple of years older, and we saw a featureless silver disc
hovering over the houses. We watched it for a few seconds, and then it shot away incredibly quickly. Even as a kid, I got angry it was ignoring
the laws of physics. We ran inside to tell the grown-ups, and they were skeptical — you’d be skeptical too, right? I got my own back a few years later: one of those grown-ups told me, “Last night I saw a flying saucer. I was coming out of the pub
after a few drinks.” I stopped him there.
I said, “I can explain that sighting.” (Laughter) Psychologists have shown
we can’t trust our brains to tell the truth. It’s easy to fool ourselves. I saw something, but what’s more likely — that I saw an alien spacecraft, or that my brain misinterpreted
the data my eyes were giving it? Ever since though I’ve wondered: Why don’t we see
flying saucers flitting around? At the very least, why don’t we see life
out there in the cosmos? It’s a puzzle, and I’ve discussed it
with dozens of experts from different disciplines
over the past three decades. And there’s no consensus. Frank Drake began searching
for alien signals back in 1960 — so far, nothing. And with each passing year, this nonobservation, this lack of evidence
for any alien activity gets more puzzling because we should see them, shouldn’t we? The universe is 13.8 billion years old, give or take. If we represent the age
of the universe by one year, then our species came into being
about 12 minutes before midnight, 31st December. Western civilization
has existed for a few seconds. Extraterrestrial civilizations
could have started in the summer months. Imagine a summer civilization developing a level of technology
more advanced than ours, but tech based on accepted physics though, I’m not talking wormholes
or warp drives — whatever — just an extrapolation
of the sort of tech that TED celebrates. That civilization could program
self-replicating probes to visit every planetary
system in the galaxy. If they launched the first probes
just after midnight one August day, then before breakfast same day, they could have colonized the galaxy. Intergalactic colonization
isn’t much more difficult, it just takes longer. A civilization from any one
of millions of galaxies could have colonized our galaxy. Seems far-fetched? Maybe it is, but wouldn’t aliens engage
in some recognizable activity — put worldlets around a star
to capture free sunlight, collaborate on a Wikipedia Galactica, or just shout out
to the universe, “We’re here”? So where is everybody? It’s a puzzle because we do expect
these civilizations to exist, don’t we? After all, there could be
a trillion planets in the galaxy — maybe more. You don’t need any special knowledge
to consider this question, and I’ve explored it
with lots of people over the years. And I’ve found they often
frame their thinking in terms of the barriers
that would need to be cleared if a planet is to host
a communicative civilization. And they usually identify
four key barriers. Habitability — that’s the first barrier. We need a terrestrial planet
in that just right “Goldilocks zone,” where water flows as a liquid. They’re out there. In 2016, astronomers confirmed
there’s a planet in the habitable zone of the closest star, Proxima Centauri — so close that Breakthrough Starshot
project plans to send probes there. We’d become a starfaring species. But not all worlds are habitable. Some will be too close to a star
and they’ll fry, some will be too far away
and they’ll freeze. Abiogenesis — the creation of life from nonlife — that’s the second barrier. The basic building blocks of life
aren’t unique to Earth: amino acids have been found in comets, complex organic molecules
in interstellar dust clouds, water in exoplanetary systems. The ingredients are there, we just don’t know
how they combine to create life, and presumably there will be worlds
on which life doesn’t start. The development of technological
civilization is a third barrier. Some say we already share our planet
with alien intelligences. A 2011 study showed that elephants
can cooperate to solve problems. A 2010 study showed that an octopus in captivity
can recognize different humans. 2017 studies show that ravens
can plan for future events — wonderful, clever creatures — but they can’t contemplate
the Breakthrough Starshot project, and if we vanished today, they wouldn’t go on
to implement Breakthrough Starshot — why should they? Evolution doesn’t have
space travel as an end goal. There will be worlds where life
doesn’t give rise to advanced technology. Communication across space —
that’s a fourth barrier. Maybe advanced civilizations
choose to explore inner space rather than outer space, or engineer at small distances
rather than large. Or maybe they just don’t want
to risk an encounter with a potentially more advanced
and hostile neighbor. There’ll be worlds where,
for whatever reason, civilizations either stay silent
or don’t spend long trying to communicate. As for the height of the barriers, your guess is as good as anyone’s. In my experience, when people sit down and do the math, they typically conclude there are
thousands of civilizations in the galaxy. But then we’re back to the puzzle:
Where is everybody? By definition, UFOs — including the one I saw — are unidentified. We can’t simply infer they’re spacecraft. You can still have some fun
playing with the idea aliens are here. Some say a summer civilization
did colonize the galaxy and seeded Earth with life … others, that we’re living
in a cosmic wilderness preserve — a zoo. Yet others — that we’re living in a simulation. Programmers just haven’t
revealed the aliens yet. Most of my colleagues though
argue that E.T. is out there, we just need to keep looking, and this makes sense. Space is vast. Identifying a signal is hard, and we haven’t been looking that long. Without doubt, we should
spend more on the search. It’s about understanding
our place in the universe. It’s too important a question to ignore. But there’s an obvious answer: we’re alone. It’s just us. There could be a trillion
planets in the galaxy. Is it plausible we’re the only creatures
capable of contemplating this question? Well, yes, because in this context, we don’t know whether
a trillion is a big number. In 2000, Peter Ward and Don Brownlee
proposed the Rare Earth idea. Remember those four barriers that people use to estimate
the number of civilizations? Ward and Brownlee said
there might be more. Let’s look at one possible barrier. It’s a recent suggestion by David Waltham, a geophysicist. This is my very simplified version of Dave’s much more
sophisticated argument. We are able to be here now because Earth’s previous
inhabitants enjoyed four billion years of good weather — ups and downs but more or less clement. But long-term climate
stability is strange, if only because astronomical influences can push a planet
towards freezing or frying. There’s a hint our moon has helped, and that’s interesting because the prevailing theory is that the moon came into being when Theia, a body the size of Mars, crashed into a newly formed Earth. The outcome of that crash could have been
a quite different Earth-Moon system. We ended up with a large moon and that permitted Earth
to have both a stable axial tilt and a slow rotation rate. Both factors influence climate and the suggestion is that they’ve helped
moderate climate change. Great for us, right? But Waltham showed that if the moon
were just a few miles bigger, things would be different. Earth’s spin axis
would now wander chaotically. There’d be episodes
of rapid climate change — not good for complex life. The moon is just the right size: big but not too big. A “Goldilocks” moon around
a “Goldilocks” planet — a barrier perhaps. You can imagine more barriers. For instance, simple cells came into being
billions of years ago … but perhaps the development
of complex life needed a series of unlikely events. Once life on Earth
had access to multicellularity and sophisticated genetic structures, and sex, new opportunities opened up: animals became possible. But maybe it’s the fate of many planets for life to settle
at the level of simple cells. Purely for the purposes of illustration, let me suggest four more barriers
to add to the four that people said blocked the path
to communicative civilization. Again, purely for the purposes
of illustration, suppose there’s a one-in-a-thousand chance
of making it across each of the barriers. Of course there might be
different ways of navigating the barriers, and some chances will be better
than one in a thousand. Equally, there might be more barriers and some chances
might be one in a million. Let’s just see
what happens in this picture. If the galaxy contains a trillion planets, how many will host a civilization
capable of contemplating like us projects such as Breakthrough Starshot? Habitability — right sort of planet
around the right sort of star — the trillion becomes a billion. Stability — a climate that stays benign for eons — the billion becomes a million. Life must start — the million becomes a thousand. Complex life forms must arise — the thousand becomes one. Sophisticated tool use must develop — that’s one planet in a thousand galaxies. To understand the universe, they’ll have to develop the techniques
of science and mathematics — that’s one planet in a million galaxies. To reach the stars,
they’ll have to be social creatures, capable of discussing
abstract concepts with each other using complex grammar — one planet in a billion galaxies. And they have to avoid disaster — not just self-inflicted
but from the skies, too. That planet around Proxima Centauri, last year it got blasted by a flare. One planet in a trillion galaxies, just as in the visible universe. I think we’re alone. Those colleagues of mine
who agree we’re alone often see a barrier ahead — bioterror, global warming, war. A universe that’s silent because technology itself
forms the barrier to the development
of a truly advanced civilization. Depressing, right? I’m arguing the exact opposite. I grew up watching “Star Trek”
and “Forbidden Planet,” and I saw a UFO once, so this idea of cosmic loneliness
I certainly find slightly wistful. But for me, the silence of the universe is shouting, “We’re the creatures who got lucky.” All barriers are behind us. We’re the only species
that’s cleared them — the only species capable
of determining its own destiny. And if we learn to appreciate
how special our planet is, how important it is to look after our home and to find others, how incredibly fortunate we all are
simply to be aware of the universe, humanity might survive for a while. And all those amazing things we dreamed aliens
might have done in the past, that could be our future. Thank you very much. (Applause)

  1. Why aren't we seeing evidence? What about the footage of the Air Force Pilots and even the NASA astronauts?

  2. Amazing talk. This is exactly why our species central focus should be solely on its own preservation. And I'm not just talking about "climate change", which is very small thinking in the grand scheme of things. We need to prepare for the worst – asteroid impacts, crazy solar events, gamma ray bursts, and things we can't even fathom – by establishing colonies off planet. Then we spread out as far and as fast as possible. I can't imagine anything more tragic than if we, the 1 in a quintillion species to make it this far, get wiped out by something that we could have prevented.

  3. This is nonsense, we can barely look past 1 percent of milky way galaxy, are signals don't go beyond that distance. Plus we don't know how big the Universe is, or how many there are.

  4. Why do they all sit there until you see it then it speeds off.
    I believe the sightings are not aliens but rather signs.
    According to him there should be no life in the universe. So we rule the universe?

  5. I think there has to be life out there. It's just incredibly far away and impossible for us to interact with.

  6. There are no Aliens I think God created life on earth and only on earth for some reason, maybe it'd be too crowded otherwise xD

  7. Don't get me wrong, some of the information he provided in this talk was really interesting, but considering there could be around 30 billion planets in our galaxy alone, is it not a bit arrogant to completely out rule the possibility of other life in our entire universe? Especially when we consider that water is being discovered on other planets. For me, that says there's every chance of finding life out there. People often think of aliens as these walking, talking things we see in films which leads to people rejecting the idea as nonsense. Personally, I refuse to believe that there isn't AT LEAST so much as a fish, mollusc, rodent, or insect-like creature out there, for example. If we've got water on other planets in the Milky Way, and on planets in solar systems other than ours, who's to say what could be found in the other ninety-nine billion nine hundred ninety-nine million nine hundred ninety-nine thousand nine hundred ninety-nine
    galaxies out there.

  8. It's highly presumptuous of us to think that because no one has replied to our radio signals means that there's nothing out there. We use radio signals because of our biology. That's what we can perceive so that's what we send out. There may be beings out there with completely different biology that are completely incapable of detecting our radio signals. They may even be sending out signals of their own that we're incapable of detecting. An example right within our own species is communication between people who can hear normally & those who are hearing impaired or deaf. We had to find a different way to communicate so sign language was invented.

    Look at the variety of life we have on our planet alone. We have creatures capable of thriving on the bottom of the ocean floor at pressures that would kill us. We have insects that live for a single day to some that outlive humans (redwood trees & giant tortoises). Granted none of those are going to build spaceships any time soon but it shows that if biodiversity can occur so rampantly on just a single planet, why not on a scale as large as that of the universe?

    We are then confining ourselves to looking for beings like us. And in that respect we may find that our chances are small, given that the conditions necessary for organic life to have evolved on this planet occurring exactly the same elsewhere within earshot of us being quite small (as he explained).

    We also don't know how we're going grow our knowledge. 200 years ago we didn't have telephones to communicate, yet today we have small, hand-held devices that we carry around in our pockets that not only can we talk to each other on but also see each other in real-time on the other side of the planet. Technology evolves with our understanding of science, and as that grows so too will there come a new form of communication. Something we might then send out that can be detected. Or that will enable us to detect a type of signal that we have as yet to make out.

    He makes the point of how VAST the universe is & how we as a civilisation have only been around for the teeny tiniest amount of time. How could we possibly say that we are alone given everything we don't know about the universe?

    Thanks for reading 🙂

  9. The aliens have been visiting Edward Meier couple times a week for over 70 years now. Read the freely available contact reports and leave behind the age of belief and enter the age of knowledge.

  10. That's so white/Abrahamic. Colonialism happened because a people believed they were superior to "heathens". Turns out the heathens had something right trying to live in balance with their ecosystem. Turns out there's no one, perfect, superior, best way to human.

    Who says there's only one way to become a multicellular or sophisticated organism? Why is reaching for the stars and looking outward the only way to be a sophisticated organism?

    I often imagine how the world would be if the natives of the American continents were considered superior by the invading conquerors.

  11. The difference in technology between the aliens and us is that with all our modern instruments we have not been able to understand the way they communicate with eachother

  12. People are certain wifi exist. Yet nobody has seen wifi. It is not because you don't see it, it doesn't exist.

  13. we dont even know how big is our universe and if there is even an end to it, and then there in parallel universes. and you really gonna say to me that our little planet here is only place with life? that is the most stupid thing i've ever heard haha

  14. The universe is way to big for us to be the only thing here. The fact that we are alive even with the small chance of existence tells you that something else is out there. Even if they where very intelligent it still can be tough for them to reach us

  15. As with all theories about space, its all hypothetical. A choice in which someone makes because they want think a certain way, so basically a belief. Now I will admit something can not be proven real until it is something we can sense, correct? We must be able to see, hear, feel or smell something for it to be real(I guess you could throw taste in there somewhere if you really wanted to). Even the things we can not see, we know are real because we feel them. Some examples are wind and gravity. But despite this, if we as a species only believe in what we can sense we would be consistently underwhelmed. We would not care to be creative, we would not care to socialize, we would not care to do anything. Because we would not have hope. Everything you and I know would be pointless. It would go something like this "so basically I'm here because I don't know, I'm continuing to live because I don't know and I care about anything because I don't know.". Get where I'm going here? There would be no point to anything if we only believed in things we could sense because we have acquired consciousness. We can no longer solely rely on natural instincts because now we have more. The ability to ask questions has cursed us and blessed us at the same time. Perhaps we are divine beings, for animals are not like us? Nothing we have found is. But we are also imperfect so that means we are a walking conflict. Have you ever stopped to think maybe space itself is a living entity? Space is full of energy. We humans are also made of energy. When you feel things that do not feel normal or out of place, is it possible that you are at conflict with the universe because you defy the rules of existence. Conciseness is the real question(no pun intended). We have somehow acquired it even though if we were to consider our own existence, it serves no natural purpose. Why do we need it all? Where did it come from? Maybe, just maybe. We are a glitch in the system. As such we experience irregularities. Understanding the universe has something I've been trying to do ever since I can remember. I'm not sure If I ever will, but. I assure you I will continue trying. So thanks consciousness, you have officially screwed me.

  16. I disagree with this analysis. It's simply survivor bias. A soldier prays: 'If I survive this battle, I will build a church.' He survives, builds a church, says it's a miracle. You look around Europe you find a lot of churchs like this. The other 10,000 poor bastards who made the same vow and got killed are not around to argue with them. There's no dinosaurs or Cro-magnon man around discussing how great the planet is for life.

  17. Yeah, I'm sorry I can't buy into the concept that for billions of years across billions of galaxies each holding billions of stars with billions of planets that humanity is the only form of 'intelligent' life. I'd rather believe in god than that kind of utterly ridiculous stupidity! I don't believe it but I could accept someone believing that we're currently the most technically advanced. I think that's an incredible stretch. I could buy into the concept that the most advanced race in our universe died out hundreds of thousands of years ago! But to believe we're the only intelligent living species ever is ridiculous. For anyone wanting to accept such a stupid notion, save yourself a lot of trouble and turn to the bible, or Koran, or randomly pick a religion and accept that as the truth about reality and be done with it. Apparently there's some 'compelling' 'science' that suggest our planet is flat too… I would find that more convincing than anyone trying to suggest humanity is the pinnacle of intelligent beings in the universe.

    Speaking of religion, how the f*** have we a history of billions of people believing in a god or gods, with the only evidence being our existence, yet the concept that our existence isn't absolute proof that there have been, are and will be many more examples of intelligent beings throughout the history of the universe!?! Or am I missing something and science is full of, and has demonstrated, numerous accounts of one-off circumstances!?! And people question why an intelligent alien race hasn't presented itself.

    While I don't believe the laws of physics allow such a meeting, except maybe in the fortunate circumstances of two intelligent races living within the same solar system, really, why would an alien species care to present itself to this planet? What possible benefit to them, what possible outcome would such a meeting provide? If there were a possibility to travel to a distance planet to attempt communication I suspect humanity would prove as interesting a prospect as humanity demonstrates towards communicating with insects on Earth! I can't think of one reason why an alien species, if it were possible, would care to let itself be known to us!!! We're a dangerous, small-minded, pathetic species that openly abuses other life that we share the planet with, while abusing and damaging our fragile home, that continue to demonstrate a selfish and paranoid attitude at every turn. Why haven't we, or why won't we ever meet an intelligent alien race… because we're human beings!

  18. Thank you. Please see my Orthodox Christian videos, which touch on the topics of end times and aliens, on You Tube under 'marykfilms.'

  19. Well… there could be a version where aliens don't want to be in contact with us. Also scientist only deal with physical univers, but what if there is a basic thing that is not material? It wouldn't be taken into the calculations and all results would be wrong. And what if bodies are used by beings and that those beings (you and I) are spirits not responding to physical laws? and what if for some reasons, you are made to forget memory and thrown on earth without memory of yourself and made to believe there is no spirit and that you are a mortal meat body? and what if this planet is being use as a prison to get rid of those who are trouble makers? And what if thos UFOs are the guardians of the prison? Would they fraternize with amnesic prisoners? Nope, they would not.

  20. I agree with his arguments. I also personally think we are alone. We should have found evidence of sentient life by now and nothing. There may be life out there but simple life 🙁

  21. Living amongst us secretly bc why bother revealing themselves to lower lifeforms who will automatically go for weapons & violence upon learning of them. We are but children to more advanced civilizations, not even children. Insects. We cannot handle the actual full truth of being a prison planet. A planet of human farms, zoos, and lab rats. Bc we are food, toys & mere nothings to them, thats why

  22. Which will happen first, we find proof of other intelligent life on other planets or we find out proof of what happens after death?

  23. this retardo nerd even understand evolution? … THERE is life out there his calculations are fully retarded

  24. why would he assume to know alien reasoning? if they..wouldnt they..? like an ant trying to understand the 4th dimension

  25. What if they exist on this same planet but on different dimensional plane … what if earth is a alien farm and we’re to young to harvest…. we gotta wait

  26. My first Idea: There is indeed intelligent life out there but the odds of intelligent life occurring in the universe is so unlikely that all the intelligent civilizations in the universe are so far from each other that no technology that is developed will ever enable any of these civilizations to travel to the other one. It may also be the case that a species far smarter than us exists out there some where and is aware that we too exist but chooses not bother with us because they don't see a reason too.

    My second and less likely idea: The hypothetical alien civilization that we constantly refer to as possibly being thousands or even millions of years more advanced than us could actually be US. Maybe we're the first species in the universe that reached the level where we could even ponder our own existence and al the other lifeforms in the universe will have to catch up. But like I said I highly doubt this.

  27. Could it be that they don't want to be seen? They want nothing to do with this violent immature joke of a spices?

  28. Well ill explain where all the aliens are take 100k pieces of paper and tap a black dot on them untill you cant put any more and looks like a stary sky and tape them all togather and then take a red pen and then go to the middle and tap a red dot

    The red dot is our galaxy and the rest is are other galaxys
    Your life is a tiny little dot compared to the rest of the world
    And yet your asking where are all the aliens
    Maybe you should try going into a deep cave blindfolded trying to find a paperclip and see how easy it is

    It honestly confuses me when people say aliens dont exist or some other weird animal beacuse until your everywhere or all knowing you will never know

  29. I can prove that Oumuamua is controlled or placed intelligent.
    I was going through some numbers for fun, in my head, like light speed, km/s and so on.,., and then it hit me.
    (First I calculated that we, human can /are able to travel 1/2 lightyear in 20 years)
    What hit me about oumuamura, is that it did not use sth sun or our planet to slow down and accelerate as normal comets and asteriods do.
    Oumuamura was directed so it only slowed down in every turn around planets, moons and sun.
    Also, Oumuamura did in reality also showed us, what direction the galaxy (Milkyway) rotates and as we know, the Milkyway rotates ata speed of 965.000 km/h.
    (3600 times slower than the speed of light)
    Because, the more Oumuamura brakes down against galxy's rotation, it will also gain speed in our view and in the galaxy, as the galaxy accelerate towards Oumuamura.
    So, instead of accelerate away from us, we accelerate away from it.
    Ergo, we have a neighbour somwhere pretty close, because now I get back to how far and fast we can travel.
    Why do we always think lightyears?
    Why not just do 1 light month or week, what is the logical distance to our maybe closest neighbour.
    And if we do as Oumuamura, we can follow it and get the same places as it went, 2 years behind Oumuamura and find neighbours, maybe.
    We can travel a light month in less than 2 years and we can travel a light week in less than 5 months.

  30. I seen something in the sky while working nightshift on the railway. looked just like a star moving and stopping very slow. then when i thought its just my imagination and just a star it shot off so fast i dont know any word to describe its speed.

  31. An interesting theory. I get that the guy simplified it for time. This theory of rare earth depends on other theories , like the requirements of life to form or even the size of our galaxy, to be fact not an estimation. As educated as they might be, they are no closer to being right. Personally, I think space and the number of stuff in it, is far greater than we can comprehend. If space is infinite and time with it, perhaps we just haven't been around long enough to matter to the greater galactic scale. Or we are too stupid to see another culture even if they were screaming at us. A fun thought experiment though.

  32. If aliens had developed tech to visit other galaxies they would most certainly jave different ways of doing things. So no they may not make themselves known and could easily pull the wool over our eyes, if they see fit based on there reasoning.

  33. I find it funny that a lot of things we don't know about we presume the worst is going to happen like we know so much

  34. We still think of alien civilization from human being’s point of view, it’s too narrow and short sight, we need jump out the box and open mind.

  35. Why are people continuing to speculate when there is ample evidence that some intelligent, star-faring species are watching Earth and humans from their own craft that have technology that has allowed them to conquer even aging making the time it takes to get anywhere interstellarly less inhibitive.

  36. Since the building blocks of life are scattered throughout the galaxy then we must have been a recipe of collected ingredients combined by someone

  37. This man has his own cocoon theory, he thinks in therms of colonisation, typical British. Wat he tells is ok but we knew that already. We also don't go to an anthill and say "we are here, where is your leader". Why doesn't he go to Edouard Wilhelm Meier (Billy Meier) a contacte in Switzerland and listen to him. Also Stephen should know that aliens don't communicate with EM waves, but with gravitational (instant) waves which we can't still intercept with our primitif devices – see the Theory Of Everything (TOE) by prof. Fran De Aquino. This theory also explains how to diminish and cancel gravitational and inertial mass to be able to travel faster than light in the virtual space time and how one can instantly communicate in the whole universe; the gravitational antenna and so on.

  38. The sad paradox is that the size of the universe means there is almost certainly life out there, and we will almost certainly never find them.

  39. What if theres another earth but there either behind in technology or one step ahead and eventually they see us before we see them or the other way around. Or were the start of aliens maybe

  40. It’s almost nothing compared to the big picture… I mean, half a century of very limited space travel vs. a billion years of time… It’s like we’ve spent 0.001 of a second looking for 1 molecule in the Milky Way

  41. if we are the only intelligent technological species in the galaxy that means there is A LOT of unclaimed real estate.

  42. We have not even found every form of life on earth. How are we going to find it millions of light years away. What we need to discover 1st before we go to another galaxy is something that is faster then light and harness it into a spacecraft. this might take a billion more yrs if ever

  43. No, we shouldn't see them. We are not capable of. Also, we are so self-centred that we seriously think they need to come to us or we are interesting enough for them to want to show themselves to us as if we were amazing or compatible enough. At the most they will come to us to study our body like lab rats. For example: why would you show yourself to ants? And even if we did, the ants wouldn't even understand that we are trying to communicate with them.
    Also we have only looked into a glas of water among an ocean when it comes to the universe.

  44. If one were to shrink the entire existence then it would be an energy field manifested in all possible dimensions. There is only one state. If there were multiple states, then the same particles could not be in several places at the same time. Somehow they would meet, and be destroyed,, since the room is concentrated to a point. And Existence has already marked their position because they are the foundation of the Energy. And therefore everything is blazing from a guideline.

  45. Strange scientist. He sees something, then when someone else says they’ve also seen it he doesn’t believe them.
    He’s not willing to believe life started independently on another planet because it would be a trillion to one chance. He is however, willing to believe that this is the only planet where life originated which must be an even greater hundred trillion, trillion to one chance.

  46. Lets not forget were only here asking this question due to an Asteroid taking out the Dinosaurs.We really shouldn't be here,and that was a sign to let us know "Your next!" If we dont get a move on.Its just a shame that so few of the population realise this,so its taking way to much time.

  47. Most likely they have figured out dimensions and how to move through them. We might just be the last race left who decided to live in this dimension and once we all evolve we will see them .

    It could also be that earth is a punishment of some sort it would make the most sense. Perhaps all of our souls were assholes and this is a punishment plan .Life and living is so awful that there's no way it's a reward system. 

    Maybe the only part of the Bible that ever got translated correctly was the part of 1/3 of the angels being cast down to live on earth and we've been thinking it was a story about angels and it's really just the truth of our origins. It would make sense why so many people believe in the concept of Satan. When I say just look around people, we are all depraved devils.

  48. i believe in One Intelligent Life / Rare Earth hypothesis because of all the random events it took for our existence & our species’ domination over Earth. Because nature didn’t choose us first.

  49. What is so unique about earth that it couldn't be found anywhere else in the universe? That's the problem I have with humans being the only living things to exist…we can't be that unique 🤷🏼‍♂️
