Then you and I agree. The paradox is a religion, not science. It is 
built on the mediocrity principal and the Drake equations  both use lots 
of assumptions and very few facts. The numbers used cannot be disproved. 
Therefore it is a religion using your own definition. So you have 
assumption+assumption=paradox. When you use so many assumptions it's no 
wonder the solution doesn't make any sense.
