If there is any intelligent life in this galaxy, you can bet that it is keeping its distance from the shit-fling monkeys on this shithole

Because intelligent lifeforms are intelligent. They are smart enough to know us from observation that we are a few millennia away from any kind of formal revelation that humans are not alone. Now there may be malevolent aliens out there that use the Earth as some kind of supermarket, picking up a few humans to snack on for the ride home. But then it would be for their benefit to remain hidden from the skittish herd animals that just so happen to have world-ending thermonuclear weapons

Now, the enormous size of just our own galaxy, guarantees that it is teeming with life. Now multiply our galaxy by about half a trillion galaxies.

However, it is that same immensity that practically guarantees that they have never been here.

Now if you want to have a discussion that an intelligent space faring civilization arose here then either left or remained here ......COME AT ME BRO!

Meh, the importance of nuclear weapons in the conversation about aliens is a bit played up a bit and the logic breaks down the harder you look at it.
I don't buy the ancient alien thing either intelligent space faring sounds a little redundant

So if humans discovered that aliens were abducting humans for food, they wouldn't try to stop them? By any means necessary?

It is more plausible to assume that intelligent life evolved to a high degree on Earth, it is 3.5 billion years old isn't it? They could have had a very high degree of technology and either were able to leave, died out or are currently hiding.

Also. when you hear scientists use the term "intelligent space fairing civilization", the are doing so in comparison to them being a belligerent space fairing civilization.

That is a pretty big IF and that really does not hold up. If they have FTL travel which is required to get here they would also have the technology to scrape the floor of a truckstop bathroom and just make copies from DNA, They wouldn't have to waste huge amounts of energy to get food.

But there is zero proof of that, an ancient advanced civilization. There would also be no need to leave and impossible to hide. Basically if you had technology sufficient enough to leave and take everyone and everything, you wouldn't have the need to leave in the first place.

Obviously it would have the technology to be kind but would it have willingness to be?

Do you know what is at the bottom of the ocean? In the high Mountain passes of the Himalayas? Or in the deep places of the Earth? If there is a superior civilization here now, they are surely better at hiding themselves than we are at finding them. They would have to be. Or they have blended themselves into our current population. Leaving only their traits that improved us.

srssly?
How about aliens are invisible and only show themselves when your eyes are closed... Aliens of the gaps, everywhere you haven't seen is filled with aliens.

Calm down, you are starting to get ridiculous. If aliens are here, do you think their technology is equal to ours or is it superior?
