Evidence - much of the Milky Way is very old, compared to the Solar Sytem, see: www.universetoday.com/21822/age-of-the-milky-way/ "The oldest stars in the Milky Way are 13.4 billion years, give or take 800 million years" so, using the evidence of our own eyes - i.e. of humans' accelerating rate of science achievement - we can see that a civilization arising near one of those older stars, say 10 billion years ago, would be so advanced as to be unrecognizable by us primitives. Logic and/or 'philosophy - just over a century ago physicists were agreed that all was known, just a few details to be tidied up. Then along came Planck, and Einstein. So anyone can see that using 'present science' to rule out _anything_ in the future, even the near future, is not only dangerous, it's also false logic. Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
