Yeah, it's dumb to say that our lack of evidence is proof that we are unique when you know we have no way to know yet.

Lucem, you're right, it's silly to talk about what I would or wouldn't do IRL. Glad you brought it up. Maybe you should write an instrumental about it. I recommend a piano paired with a clarinet. With ambient sounds of you hanging from your shower curtain you ****ing failure.

Art Is Dead. Buy My ****.

pointing out we don't even know about planets outside the Milky Way seems more an argument that we have no idea how unique we are

It’s a good thing I didn’t say that then.

Here’s what I am saying: We’ve observed life on earth. We haven’t observed life anywhere else. I’m not making any further extrapolations.

I’ve expressed my opinions about the likelihood of extraterrestrial life in other discussions. Run Drake Equation and Fermi Paradox through the search engine if you want to read up on it.

there are so many conjectural answers to the Fermi Paradox as to render it not very helpful

I always lean towards the Universe is Boring theory, and think that space travel on that level is going to be physically impossible, just a guess

There's circumstantial evidence that supports the idea that we've been visited at some point by extraterrestrials, but it's also just as likely that we're like the 3rd or 4th civilization to be born on this planet and there's just no trace left of prior supercivilizations. Wiped off the map to the point where there's nothing left to carbon date.

Please extrapolate on this about Atlantis or whatever.

Well, it has been suggested from more than a few scientists that the massive temperature increases around 56 million years ago, when we entered the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum, were driven by massive CO2 output from some pre-human advanced civilization that there is currently no traces left of. So not Atlantis exactly, but still interesting.
