So Where Is Everybody?
“He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion.”
On our previous broadcast, we told you about the Fermi paradox. In case you missed it, the Fermi paradox is the attempt by scientists to account for the fact that we have not come in contact with extraterrestrial life. This is a very real problem for evolutionists because they believe that if life evolved here, evolution must have occurred on countless other planets. So why haven’t we found anybody out there? Here are a few attempts to solve the Fermi paradox.
Because intelligent civilizations are too far apart in space-time, say some. Because it is too expensive to travel throughout the galaxy, say others. Still other scientists believe it’s because civilizations broadcast detectable radio signals only for a brief period of time. Or how about this one – that alien life forms are so different from us, we cannot recognize their attempts to communicate with us. And die-hard evolutionists suggest that intelligent extraterrestrial life does exist, but they don’t contact us because they don’t want to interfere with our natural evolution and development.
Creation Moments believes that all of these explanations fall short because the Fermi paradox is based on the faulty premises that evolution is true and that life must have evolved elsewhere. As we said last time, we believe the real reason why mankind hasn’t found intelligent life out there is because God created such life on only one planet – right here on Earth.
Heavenly Father, I pray that many of those who are looking for extraterrestrials will come to realize that our planet was already visited by Someone who is not of this Earth. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
