|That doesn't impress me. I don't think God created aliens...Just because there are 100,000,000,000 stars per galaxy doesn't mean that they consist any type of life..And you can't compare business to existace of aliens, dude. Sorry.|
Lets not make this an argument about God mate. I don't want to impress you, I want to make you see how improbable your argument is when it is faced by statistics which are accepted as facts.
And I wasn't comparing business to the existence of aliens. I was merely comparing the probabilities involved. Did you even read my post?
I'll explain, the more people are in the market for a particular product, the more people my new company could sell to. 10 billion people makes it more likely that more people would buy my products than if there were only 100 million people in the world. The fact that there are 10 billion planets which could harbour life makes it great odds that extraterrestrial life exists somewhere. The potential for extraterrestrial life is greatly similiar to the potential sales which a business could make.
Need I say that 10 billion is a very conservative estimate since we don't know how many planets there are in the universe.
