Considering that the universe is about 15 billion years old and we
only invented the steam engine 200 years ago and the computer
50 then we must conclude that if ET exists he is almost certainly
more advanced than we are. If there was a civilization a billion or
even a million years in advanced of our own then the universe should
look engineered. It doesn't.
