Default Sentient Extraterrestrials

Scientists say that the Universe is 13.8 billion years old, and the Earth is 4.5 billion years old. Keeping this in mind, isn't it naive that people think that in this exact time period there are sentient extraterrestrials? Let's say for arguments sake that there were sentient aliens, but they existed 1 billion years ago. They came and went without a whisper, and we were none the wiser. Compared to the age of the Universe, the Human species a but a scratch on the surface of time. Let's give the aliens the benefit of the doubt: they existed 1 million years ago, but they went extinct after 500,000 years. I'm not saying that they don't exist, I'm just saying that its entirely possible that they don't exist in this time and space. We could be all alone.
