It would be depressing
to think we’re the only
ones out here. Have they
contacted us yet? I don’t
think they’d waste their
time on us ... yet.
It would be a waste of space
to be the only intelligent life
forms in the universe. I hope
if there are others, they
are doing a much better
job than we are.

About 25 years ago,
I was abducted for a
short period of time. I
know we’re not alone.
AS SCI-FI FANS, UFO watchers and some
scientists will tell you, the probability that
we’re the only intelligent species in the
universe is unimaginable. Credible studies
of the past 30 years have pointed to the
likely existence of countless intelligent
species scattered throughout the cosmos,
they add. However, some experts in the
fields of astronomy, biology, chemistry and
physics argue that the likelihood of intelli-
gent life evolving on other worlds is slim at
best. If it were out there, they say, we’d
know by now. What do you think?
If the universe is as old as
scientists say it is, intelligent life would most likely
be more advanced than
we are and would have
contacted us by now.
Until there is definitive
proof, I’d have to say no.
Innocent until proven
guilty, you might say.

Following our 2008
political season, I am not
convinced there is intelligent life anywhere ...
