Except UFOs are science and science isn't guessing. Science is science.

Well duh. We don't even know exactly how life began on earth and can only see so much about other planets. People still can't decide how relevant Jupiter or the Moon was to developing human life or why the mitochondria merged with another cell allowing for more complex multicellular life. We are hypothesizing based on a sample size of 1, educated guesses can be made but certainty is impossible without a larger sample size.

And I doubt that real scientists would dispute this.  That's why, as far as I'm aware, everything is discussed in terms of Hypothesis, not Theory.

He's not wrong.

I reckon he's right.

Although looking for exoplanets, and the search for possible homes for life, is scientific. And if we were to find a planet with an oxidising atmosphere other than oxygen, we might well ask the question if other atmospheres might be suitable.

Very educated guesswork.

A bunch of guys came up with a well researched "guess" and some contrarian with nothing to lose points out that it's a guess. More at eleven.

I admit I only quickly scanned the article, but from what I'm seeing it looks like a bunch of researchers in England basically ran the Drake equation and are acting like they figured out something new? And then some nut is acting like it's proof of the existence of aliens, while completely ignoring the Fermi paradox?

My policy is that advanced beings in the universe do not exist until humans say they exist.

Most of our science about the phenomena of mind is likewise guesswork, despite all the neuroscience and so on.

When Jupiter, Mars and Earth align, there is a 5% eccentricity added to our orbit, and the combined gravity pulls enough plasma across the sun to cause less surface activity.
