It really comes down to what you believe mate.

If you think UFOs and ETs visiting Earth is bunk, then from that POV, no UFOs of intelligent ET origin have ever been seen.

If you happen to think as i do, that the Universe or indeed Multiple Universes, containing galaxies and planetary systems SO much older than our own unremarkable little galaxy and star would undoubtably contain myraid forms of intelligent life, some younger than ourselves and some MUCH older than our own, and must by reason alone, have produced thousands of species in thousands of different locations that have discovered process and science we ourselves do not...then, if you believe that as fact, even without tangible proof...the first UFO sighting goes back many, many thousands of years.

It's probably likely that some species of alien life evolved billions of years before humanity and they could've even played a part in our creation. Yes, we evolved from monkeys allegedly but there is still the missing link to prove this. The Nazca lines in Peru were created in 200 BC - long before humanity had ANY form of aircraft. They can only be viewed from above so why make them? Perhaps for a deity or perhaps for alien visitors (which they would consider gods anyway). We will never know for sure but it's fair to say that the evidence suggests we have always been visited by alien life of some sort.

There is no such thing as a "missing libnk" because evolution is not quantized. If a species was found with a place between ancient primates and humans, using the "missing link" logic that would only create two more missing links, one before the new species and one after.

Every design is visible from surrounding hillsides.

There is no such evidence at all. None. Nada. Zilch.

Saying "the evidence suggests" when there simply is no evidence does not make it true.

Perhaps "evidence" was the wrong word to use. Considering humanity is in its infancy and the likelihood of other life existing in the universe is pretty much a certainty. Sure, there is no "evidence" but mathematically there will be plenty of aliens out there. To say that advanced civilizations pay no attention to us seems completely ridiculous because every intelligent mammal is curious by nature. That's why I'm convinced we have been monitored since cavemen. Of course, I have no proof of this but mathematics and logic would suggest it's entirely plausible.

Imagine an alien race with super intelligence. They have children and these children are very curious beings. They have spacecraft as a commodity in the same way as teenagers have cars. They go on holiday and road trips. These teenage aliens might frequent earth on vacation. I am just speculating, even if it does sound ludicrous idc. There is still so much we don't know about physics and our universe, but 1 million years from now we will have knowledge and technology so advanced that we can conquer this, and perhaps other, universes with ease.

The evidence about UFOs is hard to find in this day of CGI and morons out to make a quick buck, however, it seems as though astronauts and pilots witness them a lot. Pilots fear coming forward about their sightings because they could be considered "insane" and lose their job. So most of them wait until they retire before coming forward. They understand how conventional aircraft move and they sure as hell know the difference between a weather balloon and something traveling at 2K mph. Buzz Aldrin and Scott Carpenter (Scott even took photos and NASA has yet to release them) have both gone on record to say they have seen many UFOs while in orbit. Again this isn't considered "evidence" for some bizarre reason, considering astronauts undergo intensive psychological screening. I read somewhere that the chances of becoming an astronaut are 14 million to 1 (about the same odds as winning the UK lottery). You need to be the best of the best, and these perfect individuals risk it all by admitting to seeing UFOs while in orbit.

People can say there is no "evidence" but I have to say that I'm 100% convinced we are, and always have been, visited by many aliens beings on a regular basis. If their intentions were hostile we would be dead by now. They are probably just curious and keen to see us develop as a race. The rest is up to us.

That would be the one remaining Horten, a glider, dumped in the Smithsonian Institute and forgotten about until the early 1960s when a bunch of techs on a visit and having been tasked with coming up with something "stealthy" to replace the failed U2 project spotted it and collectively gave a huge "Ahhhhhhhh"....

It wasn't secret and it was simply ignored by the Americans. The Brits however, took the plans and Richard Chadwick has made no bones about the fact, he purloined the idea and adapted it to build the ground breaking Avro Vulcan bomber. A damn great big thing that could easily out manoeuvre any fighter of its' day at high altitudes, as its' huge wing "grasped" far more air in thin high atmosphere, than any fighter.

Virtually everyone forgets that, on the same day and prior to Arnold's report another person, one Fred Johnson, from Washington State made the first "official UFO" report in the USA of the modern era after actually watching object remarkably similar to Arnold's through his telescope.. Another myth about the Arnold sighting is that "he was merely seeing reflection in his aircraft's canopy". Arnold actually opened a side window and stuck his head out briefly, to check this very thing for himself.
