#Aliens #UFO – Top 10 Reasons Why We Haven’t Met Aliens : Consider this: There are billions of stars in our galaxy and a large percentage of them have planets orbiting. There is an incredibly high probability many of those planets are in the “habitable zone” – an area not too close and not too far from the star to foster earth-like life.
The single such planet we have collected data on is our own and, it turns out, this planet allowed for us to evolve into a space-faring species. Given all this, one would expect a large number of space-faring species in our galaxy, many of which should be much further along than us considering the more advanced ages of their stars and satellites. This begs the question, where are they?
Physicist Enrico Fermi asked this and now the surprising lack of aliens given the apparent probability of aliens is called the Fermi Paradox. Let’s go over the best reasons we are still alone in the universe, from least convincing to most convincing.
10. Aliens never existed.
The most straightforward reason for not seeing aliens is that there are no aliens. Earth could be unique in the universe as the only environment that has fostered intelligent life. Considering we tend to be wrong whenever we consider ourselves special, it’s a long shot.
9. Aliens are scared of us.
Humans have a history of violence and any alien life would have seen our history through their telescope equivalents before engaging in long distance tourism. It could be a deterrent. Still, scared of us? I think it’s unlikely if they get to us before we can get to them. There is a chance earthy viruses or bacteria could negatively affect their biology, but I imagine they’d do the research before putting stuff in their mouth (if they have a mouth.)
