Has anyone seen a UFO?

Just curious. Surely we cannot be the only inhabitants of this huge galaxy.

Yeah we can be... in the entire universe even.

There are thought to be about  1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars in the universe. Sounds a lot huh?

Well say one in 1,000,000 of those stars has a planet in the habitable zone
and one in 1,000,000 of those has an earth/moon system for tides and so forth
and one in 1,000,000 of those is a nice safe region of space for a few billion years
and one in 1,000,000 of those does intelligent life develop... it doesn't stop at the microbe or even dinosaur stage...

Well then... the probability of intelligent life in the universe is 50/50...

And its easy to think the odds might be much worse: of note is that they have yet to find another star that is a match for our sun...

and also take a look at Venus, so very similar to earth and yet so far from being suitable for life...

Venus is often named as Earth's twin because both worlds share a similar size, surface composition and have an atmosphere with a complex weather system.

It's perfectly possible on the scale. Yet impossible at the same time.
However, you are a scurrying tramp and RoTM is a moron.

Aliens probably exist. However if either of you still exists when we find them, please either be dead or off the radar.

Yeah, lots of... these days they're most likely to be toy drones with lights on or someone with a lazer... and its a ufo for about 5 seconds before you realise.

Ones with bug eyed aliens in: zero.

Do people buzz you with drones when they spot you rifling through their bins?

You're missing one vital important ingredient.  The timeframe

3 billion years ago Earth was inhabitable.  But Mars may have been habitable to the point of complex lifeform.

Similarly, other solar systems that might seem dead now may have been teaming with life.

So

A long long time ago, in a galaxy far far away....  there could have been intelligent civilisations but they all destroyed themselves.
