News Flash: White House Supports Fermi’s Paradox –Says it has No Evidence of Extraterrestrial Life

6a00d8341bf7f753ef015390b1015f970b.jpgThe White House saying it has no evidence that extraterrestrials exist, casts its vote for the Fermi Paradox.

The White House in an uncharacteristic response to a feature on its website that allows people to submit petitions that administration officials must respond to if enough people sign on. In this case, more than 5,000 people signed a petition demanding that the White House disclose the government’s knowledge of extraterrestrial beings, and more than 12,000 signed another petition seeking formal acknowledgement of an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race.

Phil Larson of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy wrote on the offifical White House website that the U.S. government has no evidence that life exists outside Earth, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted any member of the human race.


“In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public’s eye,” Larson wrote.

But Larson also observed that many scientists and mathematicians believe that, statistically speaking, odds are high that there is life somewhere among the “trillions and trillions of stars in the universe” — although odds of actually making contact are remote..

The White House originally promised to respond to any petition that garnered 5,000 or more signatures within 30 days, but it’s now raised that threshold to 25,000.
