WE ARE NOT ALONE
If anyone can look at this picture and tell me that we are alone in the vastness of infinity...you are severely delusional.
Seriously. We live on a planet that revolves with 7 other planets and one so called dwarf planet around a single star and maybe 2 (we don't know)
because we might be a binary star system.
Do the math.
It has been said that our galaxy alone has over a billion stars (1,000,000,000) and there is really no way to quantify that. Lets just stick with a
billion for the hell of it.
If our star has 9 planets, that means we can assume other stars have planets too, right? Lets assume that every star out of a billion has at least 3
planets. That is 3,000,000,000 planets in our galaxy.
Then it has been suggested, also, no way to quantify, that there is well over a trillion galaxies in our Universe.
1,000,000,000,000 x 3,000,000,000 = 3.e+21 is the answer my calculator just gave me.
That is a ridiculous amount of planets and this is a conservative number. Let's try the maximum for the hell of it using our solar system as the
1,000,000,000,000 x 9,000,000,000 = 9.e+21.
No matter how you do it lets take 1% of either total and you get somewhere in between 1,000,000,000 and 1,000,000,000,000 planets roaming around out
1% of them may have life of an intelligent kind...so...that would be somewhere between 1,000,000 and 1,000,000,000.
Doesn't really matter how you do the math, there is NO WAY in any way shape or form a common sense view that can tell me or any of you that we are
alone in this Universe.
I am sure I screwed up the math and some scientist will come in here and correct me...that is ok...I'm not a mathematician...I simply find it
ridiculous that anyone can think we are the only form of intelligent life.
