Actually, I'm pretty open to the idea of there being other advanced civilizations in the universe myself.

I loved Anvil of Stars (Forge of God was OK). The idea that we should be among the first intelligence races with a technical society has been around, both among astrophysicists and SF writers for a long time, but I have to say that it would be profoundly disappointing.

If WE are the Elder Race or the Forerunners, then the galaxy is in deep f--king doo-doo.
