PLURALITY OF WORLDS: where the fuck is it!?

Many scientists are convinced that the existence of life in the universe is not anomalous in is perhaps quite common. Given our existence and the characteristics of our solar system, we can deduce that any others out there similar to our own may indeed harbor life…and yet we don’t see shit. And we can’t get there cuz it’s too far…is it far fetched to think that perhaps life is UNCOMMON? Let alone intelligent life. Are we the freaks of the Cosmos? Cuz until we find something. Kinda ses that way.

Julius,

How do you know that intergalactic visitors aren’t right here in our midst? We’ve seen the cave drawings indicating alien visitors, we’ve seen the HUGE designs in the desert that can only be seen from outer space…we know about those secret govt places…and if they came here, they’d be smart enough to know to hide among us….AND, given our Christopher Columbus era ignorance of other life forms and space exploration, how do you know they aren’t RIGHT there and we simply c-a-n-n-o-t recognize them….like ants on the sidewalk who simply crawl AROUND our foot instead of crawling over it.

That’s a very good point, I’ve considered that and am in no way dismissing that possibility. I just feel 50/50 about the whole thing. See, an alien visitor orbiting earth wouldint have to actually enter the planet to know intelligent beings call it home. The hundreds of satellites orbiting the planet are an indication that some intelligent species sent these objects out into space, whereas when we look for life in our own solar system and the other 7 planets in it, we don’t see a heck of a lot. Now granted, conspiracies meant to hide this could be in play, as well as what you mentioned, but still a part of my brain says life can’t be hidden. It’s usually pretty obvious when life exists somewhere. Maybe I’m just being impatient. Lol

I’m thinking that we’re not considered intelligent life by aliens. Look at ants. They do some amazing stuff, or dolphins. We just look at the shit ants build as primitive. Wouldn’t super intelligent, advanced species think the same of us? Maybe we’re just tiny little ants flying around and can’t see the greater context.

I firmly believe there are others and we just don’t have an ability to plainly see what is r-i-g-h-t there in front of us…

But you would still need to be right on top of the planet to see the debris. The best we can do with regard to even SPOTTING planets our size in our solar systems is to detect faint fluctuations in light and color shifts from red to blue. While we have vastly improved our ability to measure those shifts, we have still looked at only ~1900 exoplanets in ~1200 planetary systems. Now how many starts are there?

Some estimates peg that number at roughly 100 octillion stars. So the number we have even remotely been able to assess allows us ZERO room to make extrapolations about what the rest may contain. That would be the equivalent of guessing who will win the Presidency next year based on which name in a phone book a hamster walked over.

Lmfaooooo —> “guessing who will be president based on which name a hamster walked over in a phone book” lmfaooooo omfg that made my day xD but seriously. I’m not opposed to either. On one hand I can entertain the idea of the plurality of worlds, and on the other foot i can also entertain that perhaps life as we know is anomalous, if not more uncommon than we’d like to think. We can only measure the scale based on ourselves unless information is being withheld from the general public (which is a different argument altogether). I just wanna go back to krypton guys. I’m tired of earth winters -__-

We’re not alone, I can assure you of that.
