Maybe it is a sign of desperation. But researchers have come up with a new theory on why we have been unable to find any signs of alien life in our vast universe, it is because these great advanced alien civilizations have killed themselves off.
“Why aren’t they sending telescope satellites through our part of space?” Caroline Delbert writes in her article for Popular Mechanics. “And how can it be that out of all the planets and systems we’ve peeked into so far, we’ve seen nothing?
She then cites a study by three researchers from Caltech and a high school student who concluded that we aren’t finding aliens, because these ancient civilizations have wiped themselves out.
“They could even be extinct,” Delbert explains. “In fact, the research includes parameters for extinction and the idea of “self annihilation,” a probability that could be extraordinarily high.”
When you remove God from the equation for the development of life on earth, and believe it happened through natural evolution, you have to conclude that it could easily happen anywhere.
This is why surveys show that most atheists (85%) believe in little green men, even though there is no evidence for their existence. Oh, sure there are a few YouTube videos of people claiming to have been taken up to alien spaceships for examination, but other than that we have nothing.
Ironically, along with Delbert’s article, Popular Mechanics conducted a survey entitled: “Is there anybody—anything—else out there?”
At the point I checked, 15% had answered, “Nope it is just us” and 85% had answered, “Yes, I want to believe.”
Yet, atheists and others mock Christians for their belief in God.
In a video for BBC entitled “Human Universe” produced in 2014, famed University of Manchester Physicist Brian Cox described the formation of life on earth as nothing short of “miraculous.”
“There is only one advance technological civilization in this galaxy and there has only ever been one– and that’s us. We are unique,” Cox said.
And the fact, we aren’t finding any evidence of alien life, becomes evidence of God, and atheists know that.

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 2 The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. (Genesis 1:1-2 ESV)
