Re: Ancient Aliens

Haven't read the whole thread so apologies if I'm repeating this but :

Allowing even low estimates for the number of galaxies / suns / planets in the 'Goldilocks Zone' / life starting / intelligence makes it probable that intelligent life evolved elsewhere. Factor in FTL travel (which is a stretch) and you could still get theoretical visitors.

None of this, however, takes into account the staggering timescale or 'deep time' since the Big Bang. The chances of one of the aforementioned 'visitors' civilisations existing at the same time as ours is very very small indeed.
Soon oh soon the light, Pass within and soothe this endless night, And wait here for you, Our reason to be here...
