There is no other life than us. The universe is just for us to see how big God is.
That's funny. When I say there are no gods, xians like to get all up in my shit and say, "you can't prove that! You cannot 100% say that is so!" Yet here you are, aggressively asserting something as fact that you cannot possibly know even within the confines of our own solar system.
What do you think the odds are that we are able to receive a radio broadcast from the next solar system. How many watts do aliens transmitt? What signal level would you expect us to receive. Can we actually even hear a 100, 1000, or 100,000 watt transmission from our nearest extra solar neighbor?
Our communications with voyager from earth to voyager 1 and 2 are broadcast at relatively strong singnal strengths. What is the first star that those bursty communications line up with that beams path.
SETI is really cool but it is really looking for a needle in the ocean. Go ahead find me a specific needle dropped in the ocean from an unknown sailor at an unknown date since ocean were first sailed.
What communications scheme and technology do aliens use? did their technology develop around pass our own before we started listening. Are they using "radio" or did then settle on infrared lazer communications or subspace temporal communications.
SETI has not proven a thing beyond the fact that we have not been able to record alien conversations either because they don't exist, or because we have not looked for them right, or because since we have been looking we simply have not progressed far enough to pull these signals from the noise floor.
with our technology we can possibly look out 500 light years for signals of similar caliber to our own transmissions. But these very large antenna arrays are highly directional and we look for relatively short times at any point in space. Were they transmitting 500 years ago during the time we pass the array over that dot in space.
If we did hear a signal from or galaxy or other galaxy we would be winning a lottery far more statistically improbable than the powerball. don't get me wrong I would love to see it happen but the odds are long to put it mildly.
Sorry. I should have said that based on all the material we have gathered, tests we have conducted, and radio emissions we have monitored for 50 years, there are no signs of life anywhere else. If you insist, I repeat this post daily until new info comes in.
