Not just Earth. A cameo by Hitler got our whole galactic sector cancelled. Even the hiveminds won't try to assimilate species in the region anymore because they don't want to risk guilt-by-association.
It's not even a contradiction really. The only thing the lack of aliens in the detectable universe contradicts is the false hypothesis that everything can be found in several separate locations or groups, and nothing is limited to one place or area. On this planet we have multiple cases of something existing in one place, and no where else. For example, we have lemurs in no where but Madagascar. We have kangaroos no where other than Australia. We have penguins in frozen Antarctica, but when you get to the equally frozen arctic, there's no penguins. The simple answer to why that is is that the very conditions that allowed these creatures to evolve and continue to live where they are did not repeat in other parts of the world.
Back to the original point, the lack of known aliens only contradicts the idea that whatever exists should exist in several separate places, and would never be limited to one place, which we know is false.
Well a paradox isn't the same thing as a logical contradiction. The "fermi paradox" is just a paradox in the sense that reality doesn't match up to the physical evidence suggested by some scientists. In which case it behooves those scientists to review the physical evidence and adjust their theories.
OMG The Paradox in name doesn't mean its a paradox It's just a name
I swear to God, southerners think they know English
Nothing you said is even in context 1. Nobody talked about logical contradictions 2. Fermis Paradox is not a paradox 3. No fucking scientist is behooved that we haven't found aliens 4. I've never met a smart man from Kansas, therefore they don't exist
Listen here you Florida trash, my town was burned to the ground twice by Confederate hicks. Your "Southern" stereotyping is likewise appalling to me, and only strengthens my conviction of your poor grasp on the logic of this conversation. I was saying that a paradox is more or less an "apparent contradiction" rather than a real contradiction - I was essentially agreeing with you, but you were too obtuse and defensive to realize it. So I'll leave you to battle the strawmans and windmills that your wild imagination will construct from my words, leaving just these final words. Good day, sir!
...my town was burned to the ground twice by Confederate hicks Proves me correct about Kansas
Paradox is not the same as an "Apparent Contradiction"
A paradox = A statement that cannot be proven true or false, therefore we don't see it in the physical world Example: Using statements and drawings that are only conceptual "This statement is a lie" Those drawings up stairs going up forever, that drawing of the triangle with weird angles
An Apparent Contradiction(Oxymoron) = It is something that can be seen in the physical world, but language makes it seem like a contradiction. 'Deafening Silence' 'Big shrimp' 'Only choice' 'Act natural'
BTW, I'm not from Florida, I was born and raised in California, and proud of it. So suck on my avocados.
