The Galactic Federation has had enough. There is NOT going to be any more intervention on our part.
THIS WILL BE OUR LAST TRANSMISSION.

Well it looks like all ATSers really do believe that this entire Universe has no other life in it.
Just because the overwhelming majority of ATSers think this childish hoax is laughable doesn't mean that most of us don't have a problem accepting the likelihood of other intelligent life in the Universe.

I see this idea a lot, including from the OP. It is nothing but a straw man argument. I don't know ANYONE who insists we are the only life in the universe. All I ever hear is other people claiming there are those who don't. Well, they've sure kept quiet about it. That's what a straw man argument does. It postulates that someone out there believes X, with no proof whatsoever that anyone at all does believe X, then shoots down that possibility as impossible with derision and scorn.
