I only read a few pages because the author despite being a professor of astrophysics doesn t sound very scientific at all I abandoned the book on page 7 when he says The burden of proof now falls on the pessimists meaning those who don t believe there are advanced civilizations out there are the ones who have to prove they don t exist Uh hello Any neurons firing up there The burden of proof always lies with those making an assertion that something exists not on those who don t believe it without proofHe also says that our history of life on Earth shows that we are not the first Um OK where exactly is that shown With what scientific method And two paragraphs later he admits that science has proven no such thing and yet he makes these grandiose claims and expects us to just swallow them What are we in church I am of the mind that there is probably life out there intelligent life too but untilunless we have proof we cannot say that there is or accept someone s assertion that there is scientist or not Until there is proof it s mostly just wishful thinking I find it hard to believe that we re the only life when there are billions of galaxies teaming with stars and planets but that is not proof that there are advanced alien civilizations If the rest of this book is like the first few pages then I think Adam Frank probably needs to revisit Science 101 Perhaps if I continued reading I would find that it gets better but I have absolutely no reason to think Adam Frank will be different in the rest of the book when he s anti scientific in the beginning I would have a very hard time putting any credence in his words Catalogue of the Collection of High Class Pictures by Old Masters of the Dutch School of Sir Edward J Dean Paul Bart; Deceased fate on Earth Astrophysicist Adam Frank traces the uestion of alien life and intelligence Exercices corrigés d'optique : Optique instrumentale - Optique de Fourier from the ancient Greeks to the leading thinkers of our own time and shows how we as a civilization can only hope to survive climate change if we recognize what science has recently discovered that we are just one of ten billion trillion planets in the Universe and it’s highly likely that many of t.
