The Reason Why We Haven't Found Any Space Aliens Is Because They're Dead

Physicist Brian Cox says the reason we haven’t found any signs of advanced life in the universe is because they all killed themselves. Cox says it’s a problem indicative to technology surpassing the ability to evolve past dogmas and politics, suggesting we're next.

An excerpt from the Express UK:

“The solution, many scientists argue, is once a civilisation reaches a certain size, it eventually kills itself off, either through war with advanced weapons or natural disaster.

Mr Cox elaborated on this theory, claiming that it is the reason why we have not seen any strong evidence for extra-terrestrials.

He told the Sunday Times: 'One solution to the Fermi paradox is that it is not possible to run a world that has the power to destroy itself and that needs global collaborative solutions to prevent that.'

'It may be that the growth of science and engineering inevitably outstrips the development of political expertise, leading to disaster.'”

Or maybe its because the Milky Way is 100,000 light years across, and we kind of live out in the sticks.

The reason You have not had any contact is the other races are scared of the human race and the moronic things they do, If you want proof just look at the world leaders through out history, Putin, Clinton, Trump, Sadam Husain, Hitler... and the list goes on and on. People with common sense have been pretty much ignored, minamalized or shunned in human society.

Typical bullshit reporting trying to pull a story out of nothing. Read his quote again. He isn't saying that he believes that particular theory. He's saying that's one of the possible reasons. And it is. He's right. There are lots of possible reasons. But 'scientist discusses theory' isn't a headline. 'All the aliens are dead!' is a headline.

They don't want to be found, they are hiding from each other.
