A Fermi Commitment to Snipe Hunting

Yes, the title is a dreadful play on words based on the so-called Fermi Paradox. This concept is based on presuppositions rooted in abiogenesis (life from non-life), atoms-to-aliens evolution, and numbers. There are so many stars out yonder, there has to be life on many planets. Materialists have a firm commitment to the Fermi paradox, but there is not much reason to believe it anymore.

Yes, I know that there are birds known as snipes, but this kind is not a bird and requires special methods for hunting. That's because the legendary critter is elusive because it doesn't exist. A snipe hunt is nonsensical, but people have fun with it. Searching for space aliens on exoplanets is an expensive waste of time, and doesn't seem to be pleasurable. That's because the Creator put Earth in a special place and did it recently, as well as making man in his own image. Materialists don't cotton to those notions.

Interesting that materialists suggest that the laws of physics were different or did not apply to the Big Bang, and that they are not consistent across the universe. I reckon that there is no reason according to their convoluted logic to expect that evolution occurred elsewhere.

The non-science of astrobiology relies on the Fermi Paradox and other assumptions that have no actual basis in science. Researchers did some calculations with more realistic numbers (possibly because the possibilities for habitable planets are fading), and are disappointing the adherents. See that cloud of dust over yonder? That's from the true believers circling the wagons against logic and drumming up some rescuing devices. They know there are snipes out there, and they're going to hunt them anyway.
Where are the aliens? Are we alone in the universe after all? The prevailing academic worldview is based around the secular humanistic, materialist premise that natural causes explain everything, and the universe is devoid of any over-arching meaning, purpose or design. Since life is asserted to have evolved here on Earth through unguided natural processes, it would seem to follow that we should expect to find it elsewhere in the universe also (because the alternative would imply that Earth and humanity are somehow special and unique, which is antithetical to the secularist worldview).

In cosmology, this secular viewpoint that humans are not special in the universe has been named the Copernican Principle, though the man himself would certainly not have agreed with its modern formulation. We are assumed to have a randomly-selected vantage point on the rest of the universe which does not reflect any privileged view.
