Four.  I think there's four.

You're not correct MacGuffin.  I used to think just like you but after decades of contemplating, and emotional wishful thinking became logical thinking based on statistics and lack of evidence my own personal conclusion is there is probably much life throughout the universe.  There is probably an extremely (very extremely) small fraction of that life on a very small fraction of those worlds where intelligent civilization building life exists.


Well, let's just put it this way.  I think I have pretty good reasons to make the comments that I do, and just within our neighborhood on the galaxy we have quite a few civilizations.  After all, space-faring civilizations will probably have plenty of time to visit, explore and settle on many worlds over thousands or millions of years.

Well, I hope I'm not out of place in saying this, but they are already living right here among us. I'll be publishing hundreds of pictures next year.  You can see samples of my photos taken with a simple mobile phone camera in the unexplained mysteries gallery with more to come.

And your reasons are? Gut feeling? You may want to share your "reasons" with SETI guys, so they could point their "eyes/ears" in the right direction.

PS where is the nearest civilization located? And BTW, what do you mean by the neighborhood? 10 light years? 1000 light years? 10000 light years?

We can barely prove there's intelligent life HERE let alone out there.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

I suspect at a microbial level, we may find substantial evidence in time. But, to use the term civilization implies a relatively high level of human cultural and technological development. Given those constraints, I suspect the probability is low to none that we will find a truly parallel civilization although I hope I am wrong.

500 light years.

Which SETI guys do you mean, anyway?  The public version of it is being run by clowns.

Your Right. I forgot the American Government can be counted as a Alien Civilization since we landed on the Moon and all.

Considering the vastness of the universe there are probably many. Considering the relatively small "neighborhood" we are in I would guess we are the only ones nearby. Even if there are other intelligent species in our galaxy there would be little reason to visit our planet revolving around a small star. Until recently there would have been no way to detect any intelligence upon our small blue world.

Life may be much more common than we believe currently but intelligent life is a whole different story.

This whole idea is fairly silly really, isn't it, since it's all once great enormous assumption built on a whole string of steadily bigger assumptions. It does seem strange that people who usually set so much importance by what can be scientifically validated seem to accept it, though, even though not one of the assumptions in it can be validated at all. I wonder if one factor behind this might not be that they can use it to come to a conclusion that alien civilisations are very, very few, or perhaps do not exist at all. In fact, it might of course all be irrelevant, since we're finding out more and more about our very own Solar system, and what we're finding out is how little we really know about it. Who knows, worrying about what may exist among the stars might be irrelevant for our purposes. Who can say. :w00t:

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.
