Fermi doesn't say that though. Fermi asks a question, The conclusion must be wrong because it flows from an erroneous starting point. Fermi led to Drake attempting to quantify the issue & a whole bunch of postulations on the subject. My own view is the universe is teeming but I don't know that, I do know we're here & there are untold billions of stars & planets & so I'm a sucker for the numbers game.
