I don't think you realise how big the solar system is, let alone the galaxy.
How the hell can you conclude that we might indeed be alone in our galaxy if we havn't found evidence by 2050. Thats boarderline retarded.
Fermi's paradox (or the 'Great Silence') is a well documented argument against the development of spacefaring intelligent life, and at least a possibilty (hence my use of the word 'might' ie. I wasn't actually making a definite conclusion, just bringing up an interesting point). I actually do believe that we will have found some sign of ETs by that point.
Would you pay less for a humanities degree?
