  • The universe is unbelievably big – trillions of stars and even more planets. Soo… there just has to be life out there, right? But where is it? Why don’t we see any aliens? Where are they? And more importantly, what does this tell us about our own fate in this gigantic and scary universe?

                  If the only other life was hostile, it would kill itself, there fore we would be seen as an ally, not threat. After some analysis of us of course. They'd be sentient, and eventually we could find away to communicate, everyone relates aliens with doom, but if we, a sentient clorabative species found new life, we wouldn't kill it. We would try to befriend and study it.

                      GalacDuck is awesome! But since it’s in the video, does that mean that it’s the last surviving being from the previous universe? Where are the Heralds? Just questions upon questions now.

                                            i have a possible answer
                                            when life dies on 1 planet it spreads into 2 living planets
                                            if that's true then we are the first

                                                  Maybe the universe was less habitable when it was younger. Maybe the ratio of suitable planets is lower than we think. Maybe we have been very lucky with the "filters".
                                                  Maybe its less common that evolution favors high intelligence than we know.

But the government didn’t want us to know because of certain reasons which you could probably guess. I mean we wouldn’t know even if there was. There’s definitely life, there’s not even a doubt, but my theory about the government is probably unlikely idk

                                                                                  That's the problem with assuming evolution is true. That theory is all based on assumptions and falls apart when they are taken out of the theory.
                                                                                  God said Eve is the mother of ALL living. He even placed earth in the centre of our universe (cosmic background radiation we've detected shows us this.)
                                                                                  The only "aliens" we ever experience here from earth are fallen angels.
                                                                                  Far more evidence for God's Bible than thete is for this evolution fairytale.
