Humanism: The Drake Equation and the Fermi Paradox


What is the probability that there are intelligent beings in this galaxy? How do you calculate this probability? What does the math tell us? If they exist, where are they? What are the reasons we haven't heard from ET?

The Humanism Meetup meets monthly, but for the duration of the Covid-19 pandemic I am reprising old presentations on a weekly basis. I perform all presentations twice: one at 9AM EST(UTC-5), and at 3PM. Check my channel for dates and times: This meetup is intended for, but not limited to humanists.

Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without theism and other supernatural beliefs, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity. Please join the discussion in our discord channel: #Humanism
