The earth is one planet of a billion billion so there's a fair chance that we're no alone - as long as by "company" we mean life within several thousand light years. For aliens to reach us they would have to master time travel or work out how to exceed the speed of light (if possible would take more fuel than we have on Earth) and travel through wormholes. Then they would be prepared to make themselves visible to us - and if they have the "chops" to get out here they would surely know when they were in view and would do so to advantage.
Andy, my money is on another explanation ...
Agreed. We have no knowledge of outside life and while it may be possible, I do not believe it would anything like us. I really think there are lots of "secrets" governments don't want us to know about.
