Are Aliens Real: Here Is Some Proof

This post is to prove aliens exist outside of our planet. You might be asking yourself, how can you, of all the people on the planet, prove aliens exist? Well, I am just trying to look at this problem from the way I solve any other problem. Observation. But you are still asking yourself, how can you solve an unknown without a sample size to study!? Easy, us. Humanity is the sample size that answers this problem. First we need to do some simple math:

  • About 8.7 million (give or take 1.3 million) is the new, estimated total number of species on Earth -- the most precise calculation ever offered -- with 6.5 million species on land and 2.2 million in oceans 
  • There are roughly 500 billion galaxies in the universe, meaning there is somewhere in the region of 50,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (5×1022) habitable planets. I'll leave you to do the math on whether one of those 50 sextillion planets has the right conditions for nurturing alien life or not. 

So....if we have that many living things just on this tiny little blue dot in space, and all those 50 sextillion other habitable planets in the Universe, isn't it safe to assume that at the minimum, one of those planets has life on it?


Now that we are assuming that at least one of those planets has life. Could one be as evolved as us? Could they possibly be more evolved than us?? Let's look at the sample size again!

We will look at our own development as a single species over just the past two hundred years for time and simplicity purposes. In 1815, not too much was happening compared to today. People didn't take airplanes to get to work, there weren't people in a space station doing science things, and they sure as hell did not have iPhones.

2015 Humans

My God that is a lot of development in such a short amount of time!! Now, just imagine for a second, that just one of those other planets out there, just one. Just so happened to be similar to Earth, same resources, maybe even more. And say that they also had a billion year head start of us on the galactic time scale. I know you are saying this has all been said before, but I am just hear to prove a point. If you think, that we are the only one's in this Universe, and the most advanced ones. Ask yourself, are you the best at what you do on this planet? There is always someone who can do something better than you, this rule applies to our species in this Universe as well. I would love to hear your thoughts as well, thanks for reading!
