Everyone has heard of the Fermi Paradox, described by Wikipedia like this:
Italian-American physicist Enrico Fermi’s name is associated with the paradox because of a casual conversation in the summer of 1950 with fellow physicists Edward Teller, Herbert York, and Emil Konopinski. While walking to lunch, the men discussed recent UFO reports and the possibility of faster-than-light travel. The conversation moved on to other topics, until during lunch Fermi blurted out, “But where is everybody?” (although the exact quote is uncertain).
Your Curmudgeon has written about the Fermi Paradox a few times, e.g.: Evolution and the Fermi Paradox. We’ve also written about creationist commentary, such as: Ken Ham Explains the Fermi Paradox, and also Discoveroids Solve the Fermi Paradox.
Today, finally, we we found some commentary from the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) — the granddaddy of of all creationists outfits, the fountainhead of young Earth creationist wisdom. It’s titled Prepare for the Big Non-Event!, and it was written by Frank Sherwin, Science News Writer at ICR. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
In 1950 the famed Italian physicist Enrico Fermi asked his coworkers at the lunch table the simple metaphysical question in regard to possible aliens in the universe, “Where is everybody?” Since then his question has become the Fermi Paradox: the supposed high estimates for intelligent extraterrestrial life conflicting with cold, interstellar silence.
Fair enough. Then he says:
In 1984 the ambitious Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) was launched to intercept electromagnetic radiation from possible civilizations on other planets. But interest has since waned and funding has been a problem.
But now there’s Breakthrough Listen, a project with $100 million in funding to listen for intelligent extraterrestrial communications. This mission uses thousands of hours on telescopes in facilities throughout the world attempting to discover technosignatures (indicators of technology) and biosignatures (biological processes).
Wikipedia has an article on it: Breakthrough Listen. Anyway, Frank tells us:
Two evolutionists [The fools!] are convinced that through the alleged billions of years of the universe’s existence, evolution has produced intelligent life somewhere and that we may make contact with aliens in about three years.
In 2011 Howard Smith, a senior astrophysicist at Harvard, stated after surveying 500 planets, that we are alone in the universe. Life — intelligent or otherwise — has still not been found. Nevertheless, predictions continue to be made. Regardless of hearing nothing from the depths of space, scientists are insisting Earth get prepared to answer interstellar messages.
Evolutionists continue to place their faith in evolutionary processes that will produce — they hope — intelligent, non-violent beings that will soon contact us.
Yes, it’s tragic the way those evolutionists place their faith in evolutionary processes. Frank explains why:
The Bible is historically accurate. [Hee hee!] It gives us clear insight into the origin of the universe and Earth. It doesn’t mention intelligent extraterrestrials.
And for a powerful bit of evidence, Frank ends his post with a quote from the bible:
The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s:
but the earth hath he given to the children of men.
You can’t argue with that! All those SETI people are nothing but Darwinist fools!
