I think the two key words are "advanced civilizations" and "milky way". In so far as we know, there is only ours. Now if we expand to other galaxies, who knows, there must be something else out there. To be the only ones in this vast universe feels rather lonely.

Hello M:

If you UNDERSTOOD science, the answer is OBVIOUS.. But, you don't, so it isn't..

There are MORE galaxies in the Universe than there are grains of sand on EVERY beach and EVERY desert on this great world of ours..

To BELIEVE that out of ALL those galaxies, WE'RE the only one with intelligent life, suggests that you don't understand math, science, history or common sense..

After all, you're the guy who doesn't BELIEVE DNA aren't you??? You ARE, you silly ignoramus..

You seem to have a difficult time understanding the debates you argue upon.

There are MORE galaxies in the Universe

The debate is about the Milky Way, not the Universe.

To BELIEVE that out of ALL those galaxies, WE'RE the only one with intelligent life, suggests that you don't understand math, science, history or common sense..

Since we've found no direct signs of intelligent life thus far in exploring the universe, there's no basis for any probability concerning life in other areas of the Universe. Unless you have any proof at all that hasn't been made known to the public somehow of signs of life on other planets, don't assert your ignorant beliefs so confidently and condescendingly.

Side note: I do believe we are not the only life in the Universe, I just severely disagree with the illogic in the reasoning of your argument.

And yet Darwin couldn't muster intelligent life in any of them...

And yet Darwin couldn't muster intelligent life in any of them...

Hello bront:

Couple things...

It's NOT about proof.. It's about math. Given that there are BILLIONS and BILLIONS of planets in the Milky Way, one would have to believe that we earthlings won life's LOTTERY. Math, on the other hand, says we didn't win squat..

The truth is we don't whether Darwin populated the Milky Way, or not.. Scientifically, we're only able to identify a sentient population through their radio waves.. Since we've been broadcasting radio, and/or listening, our waves haven't traveled much beyond our very own solar system.. That's because of the speed of light.. It would take several MILLIONS of years for our signals to reach even the closest habitable planet, and for theirs to reach us..

Your book says that NOBODY is in the Milky Way but us.. Science books say the Milky Way is RIFE with LIFE..
