In all likely hood there are species of intelligent life out there that have existed for millions of years longer then us. With that in mind how can you say with any confidence that:-

"There is however, no evidence that the suspected life out there has technology more evolved and advanced than ours."
He is right. There is no evidence, there is only a theoretical possibility. That's a difference.

Also, we may have evolved from caveman to homo sapiens internetensis in 10.000 years, which indeed is but a pure fragment of time in universal standards, but we needed 4,6 Billion years to transform from atomic matter to organic acid molecules to living cells and from there evolve to cavemen. That's about a third of the Universe's age.

I dont believe in god by the way. I simply believe in possibilities.
It is indeed possible that there is life out there so much evolved that we cannot significantly interact with it, like amoeba have a hard time interacting with humans, BUT that's still in no way comparable to a deity as proclaimed by the religions. Also, if there is a higher evolved life form, it is questionable whether it is worship worthy knowing that it keeps us only in a test tube.
