Where is the Alien Life?
by Bear Hunter
This is a link to an interesting article on theories as to why we haven’t found any signs of alien life. It’s a bit of a scattered article but it’s worth a read.
I enjoyed the bit on the likelihood of “modestly intelligent” animals evolving into beings with human-like intellect. I think it’s meant to be a statement on how a highly intelligent species should be able to emerge elsewhere in the universe as well as re-emerge on earth – if humanity becomes extinct. Once again, the article is a bit scattered and it’s hard to really know what point the writer is trying to get across.
