Sadly, the answer is probably not.

What a depressing dude! I think we’re going to have some breakthroughs that will make interstellar travel possible, eventually, but I’d agree our current tech and perhaps even our current way of thinking about the problem don’t seem to be on a path that will ever get us there. Of course, I’m also assuming that we find a way to reverse the unfortunate evolutionary trend that’s resulting in generations that aren’t as intelligent as their ancestors were. Maybe we need an end of the world event like you mentioned in your last post to accomplish that :)
Hahaha, I like your conclusion. I guess to me it isn’t a matter of the science, but the underlying question behind the Fermi Paradox… really, where is everybody?
Fermi paradox relies on a lot of dubious assumptions about what would motivate a species advanced enough for interstellar travel, don’t you think? As ignorant as humanity was about even the basic science just a couple thousand years ago, it seems to me we’ve gotten pretty full of ourselves if we think we have it all figured out, now. But such discussions are how we make progress, aren’t they? :)
ha, thats’ true :)
