That is just not true, the facts do conflict with the ET theory. It is a
fact that the universe does not appear to be engineered and it is also a
fact that even in the very unlikely event that it is imposable to send space
probes faster than we can right now a civilization could still send
Von Neumann probes to every star in the Galaxy in just 50 million years,
a blink of the eye in other words. And if that had happened you wouldn't
need sophisticated experiments to detect ET, a blind man in a fog bank
would know.

So either we are the first or mind always runs into some sort of
impenetrable wall if it tries to advance beyond a certain point.
