8.8 billion earth sized planets I came across this article and it got me thinking back to a number of threads in the past on here where people have dismissed the idea of UFOs and extraterrestrial life. I have heard arguments about distances and vastness of space etc.. However, as this article says they estimate that there are 8.8 billion planets in our galaxy alone that are in the Goldilocks Zone. That is 8.8 billion chances for life to take root. That is a lot of chances for advanced societies to develop and explore. On earth we had life wiped out several times and pretty much started from scratch. What if on some other planet they had their industrial revolution a million or even 10 million years before ours? Is every light in the sky an alien spacecraft? No! However, there have been quite a few reports from pilots and other very credible witnesses who have seen things very close up that are hard to deny. The 747 shadowed by the UFO in Alaska for example. Link to Story www.youtube.com/watch?v=7iSzjoGwxG4 Based on the eyewitness reports and what we do know. What is the logic behind those of you that say that either extraterrestrial life doesnt exist or the whole UFO phenomenon is just a bunch of people misidentifying airplanes or swamp gas or something?
