God And The Fermi Paradox

It is written:

“ Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; 15  and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so.” (Genesis 1:14-15)

“Our universe is huge! Surely there must be life somewhere else then here on Earth, right?”

This is the argument that is often advanced by many that I am blessed to study with.

However, the facts show a far different conclusion!

Lee Strobel, in his interview with cosmologist Peter Strauss, was told the odds of life existing anywhere else in our universe.

“That still means the odds of having any higher life–supporting planet would be one in a million trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion trillion.” He let that astonishing number sink in. “In science,” he said, “we have a phrase for probabilities like that.” “Really? What is it?” There came a grin. “Ain’t gonna happen.” (Lee Strobel, The Case For Miracles: A Journalist Investigates Evidence For The Supernatural, 178-181 (Kindle Edition); Grand Rapids, Michigan; Zondervan)

A scientist named Enrico Fermi posed one of the greatest challenges to the idea of extraterrestrial life:

“Ironically, it was Enrico Fermi—the “father of the atomic bomb”—who, in an offhand remark during a lunchtime conversation, posed a devastating argument against the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis—the theory that UFOs and aliens come from outer space. The eminent Italian physicist and Nobel Laureate played a pivotal role in the first nuclear reactor as well as the development of quantum theory and particle physics. 10 He had the kind of scientific mind that could—and did—build a working atomic reactor in a squash court. Over lunch one day with his colleagues, the question arose about whether or not the Milky Way galaxy is populated with advanced civilizations. The consensus around the table was that it is reasonable to assume that earth has plenty of cosmic company. The great physicist, however, detected a flaw in that assumption. During his own lifetime, Fermi noted, he had seen tremendous technological development along with a growing interest in exploring outer space. It is both reasonable and likely, continued Fermi, that any other intelligent civilization in the galaxy would also possess the same curiosity about other possible worlds. In the decades since Fermi’s death in 1954, earthlings have walked on the moon, landed rover vehicles on Mars and sent probes to distant parts of the solar system—all reinforcing his argument. How many other civilizations exist in the Milky Way? Presumably, civilizations evolve on planets, and a recently published evaluation of data from the Kepler Space Observatory by a team of NASA scientists indicates that there are an estimated 8.8 billion earthlike planets in our galaxy. 11 And how many of those planets hold intelligent life?…According to evolutionary cosmology, the Milky Way galaxy is estimated to be some ten thousand million years old. Assuming for the sake of argument that this is correct, it would mean that the earth has been around for several billion years. It should then follow that the older parts of our galaxy theoretically contain civilizations that have evolved millions of years beyond our own. This is a key consideration, for if other inhabited worlds have even the same level of rocket technology developed thus far by homo sapiens, they would be able to send probes to other star systems in the galaxy. Given the vast amounts of time these civilizations presumably have had to develop technology, those older than earth by a quantum factor could undoubtedly have developed much more efficient means of propulsion, making it even more likely that we should have been contacted at some point by our galactic neighbors. It was this inescapable point that Enrico Fermi grasped, for if other advanced civilizations exist, they would long ago have visited—and very possibly would still be visiting, and even colonizing and exploiting earth, prompting his question: “Where is everybody?” (Timothy Dailey, PH.D., The Paranormal Conspiracy: The Truth About Ghosts, Aliens, and Mysterious Beings, 53-56 (Kindle Edition); Bloomington, Minnesota; Chosen Books)

If the universe has been here for billions of years and if it were teeming with extraterrestrial life (as the theory of evolution maintains), then we should have found copious amounts of evidence confirming such.

Yet there is NOTHING in the terms of evidence for extraterrestrial life.


There is no extraterrestrial life, and the theory of evolution in which we have so thoroughly been indoctrinated as a culture is not true.

In truth, this should not surprise us, as the evidence of science actually demonstrates that the conditions for a life-sustaining planet are extremely rare in our universe. In fact, the evidence points undeniably to the existence of God and the credibility and truthfulness of the Bible. Sadly, many will not accept this conclusion but will instead choose to cling to science fiction.

It is in Jesus that you will find out who you are and what you are living for (Ephesians 1:4), not in E.T.
