Do they exist?
Movies such as Hollywood seem to think so.

What do you think? If you don't believe they do, God aside, would you like them to?

Ok, you are right up my street, look up the Fermi paradox. The answer is that the galaxy is a big, big place developed over a lot of time, and our ability to send out radio waves is fleeting. So probably, yes, our chances of meeting them, non-existent.

According to this they exist but meeting them doesn't?
I will look the paradox.

The general idea is that in billions of years of evolution any sentient being has a fleeting moment of creating radiowaves (digital is far less expansive) and the chances of us co-existing is so minute as to be vanishingly unlikely.

Well time remains to prove humans are forever. I don't believe in human extinction. It is a stuff of books.

It is inevitable sooner or later, if hubris does not kill us, the heat death will
