Ron: Here is a letter I sent to the Canberra Times today.
Brad Tucker, ‘Should we fear aliens from distant planets and galaxies? CT, 23/1/22, p. 29, says most alien life is likely, if it exists at all, to be simple, like bacteria.
Given that scientists tell us there are trillions of stars and planets in the cosmos, the probability that we are the only, or the most advanced life forms, is very unlikely. That improbability becomes even greater when we consider that our solar system and planet appear to be relatively young as compared to the great age of much of the rest of the cosmos.
Moreover, given the great diversity of life on this planet, the probability of advanced life forms evolving beyond bacteria elsewhere must also be great.
As regards fearing alien invasions, it should be obvious that if life forms from outside this solar system have the ability to travel to this planet, their technological abilities would be so superior that attempting to fight them would be futile. The probability that they are not hostile or aggressive towards us is therefore overwhelming despite the gas lighting fear porn movies pumped out by Hollywood for decades.
