The existence of aliens

The existence of aliens.
There' s two options, either they exist, or they do not exist.
if they exist, again there are only two options. One they are smarter
than us. Two they are dumber. If they are dumber I do not want to
meet them, if they are smarter they would find us before we find
them. - Javier Guzman

i saw a documentation about the universe a few days ago and they explained that there is somethign called a habitable zone, a zone in a galaxy or solar system that supports life. chances seem pretty low for a planet to be in such a zone.

Actually, the amount of planet's with earth-like properties orbiting habitable zones in the Milky Way galaxy has been estimated to be anywhere between 150-500 million. And that's just in our galaxy, plus new discoveries are being made all the time. I'd say the chances of the Earth being the only inhabited planet in the universe are ridiculously slim.

You know, one plausible theory to explain why we haven't made contact yet is because everyone else is too busy hiding from each other.

Think about it like this: you're walking home, at night, through a park, and in said park are numerous rapists, murderers, and muggers, cops, and of course there are other people like you simply trying to get home.

Now to get out alive you have 2 options: either cry out for help, which is much too risky because you'll likely attract the attention of every ruffian out there. The second option, and the safest, is to simply remain as quiet as possible, stay hidden, and move silently.

Galactic Space is like that park, only you can't leave it ever, and there are no cops. So that leaves everyone to remain hidden, rather than risk being detected by a hostile race who would seek to genocide their asses in a manner most heinous.

That's like saying you wouldn't want to try and discover any new species of animal because they are all dumber than us. They are still ******* amazing.
User avatar #19 - shiifter (08/13/2013) [-]
If they are dumber than us, i still want to meet them.

Maybe they're hot...

if there is a space faring species they won't come anywhere near us until we can reach that level

The problem is, money is so deeply rooted into our minds and our motivations, removing it from the equation would do more harm than good in this situation.

Or you know, this might be a massive oversimplification.

Intelligence as we define it is based on human characteristics and thinking. We have a developed mammalian brain (with a little reptile mixed in).

It is perfectly plausible, if not likely, that if there is extra terrestrial sentient life it would have developed a completely different brain-equivalent and an entirely different way of thinking.

As well as this, their planetary conditions could well be entirely different to our own and create further obstacles. Not to mention that even if they were identical human beings they could still have developed technologically entirely different.

There is even more to be said but I tried to keep it short.

it is a mathmatic improbability that aliens do not exist

I don't want to meet smarted Aliens..... it never ends well in any theory

Aliens avoiding human contact for as long as possible would make sense.
However, aliens being about as far development-wise as humans would also make sense. Hell, the universe is big enough that, even if they did explore one billion times as far as we've ever been, they still would only have a slim chance of discovering our backwater little planet.
So, either they're smart enough to stay away from a bunch of xenophobic, racist chimps whose idea of a good time is to eat everything they can't **** then **** everything they didn't eat, or they haven't found us yet.

I've wondered, what if we are like the Gallifreyans from Doctor Who, or the Highbreed from Ben 10: Alien Force? Those species are the first to evolve in their respective shows. What if we are the first sentient creatures to evolve?

I really hope that this isn't the case. The currently predicted age of the universe is ~13.8 Billion years old. The earth is ~4.5 Billion. If it takes around 9 billion years in the universe to create life, then I highly doubt that we will ever observe life outside of the Solar System.

If they are dumber I sure as hell would want to mmet them, it's ************* alien, who cares about how smart they are!

If aliens exist or not, the outcome would still be mind blowing. If they do exist then we are not alone in the universe. If they don't then we are alone.... both notions are terrifying.
User avatar #147 to #133 - trimageryan (08/14/2013) [-]
Being alone in the universe is 1000x more terrifying than not to me. It would mean all of the secrets of the universe, all the mysteries of life, all of the difficulties of life are ours and ours alone to figure out and if we **** up that's it, game over, we lost.

I don't think, as a species, we could bare that kind of weight. Hell, we can't even stop killing each other for stupid reasons.

Good Arthur C. Clarke quote by the way
