The reasoning behind the Fermi Paradox provide support for the
ETH explanation for 'flying saucers/UFOs/TRUFOs' or AFC (Alien
Flying Craft). This was pointed out in the paper published a
year and a half ago in the Journal of the British Interplanetary
Society. Unfortunately it doesn't turn up in a Google search for
Fermi Paradox because that phrase is not in the title:
Inflation Theory Implications for Extraterrestrial Visitation.

This can be found at:


The point of the paper is that modern theoretical thinking about
the probabilities of life in the universe (besides here) and the
liklihood of being agoe to travel vast distances in space by
manipulating space itself actually makes the paradox stronger...
assuming one rejects all UFO evidence for the ETV
- exstraterrestrial visitation - by creatures representing ILE
-Intellitegent Life Elsewhere.

Of course, there is no paradox for those who accept the UFO
evidence as proof of the the ETV/ETH hypothesis.

Then the next question is, is there intelligent life on earth?
