I think it's ignorant when people suggest dolphins or monkeys or elephants might suddenly start composing music and formulating theories for
thermodynamics and gravity. Humans did not become intelligent on their own! They had to slaughter countless biologicals and reshape the Earth over
millions of years to build up the critical mass necessary to even reach the stage where they could invent agriculture and writing and all of the other
things often associated with our intellect. My thought is this planet can only support one species of our calibre and the only way for another to
emerge is for humans to disappear or for us to engineer one artificially.
Anyway I think we don't know enough to say whether intelligent life is out there or not. If it's I suspect it's either not interested in full contact
or it's so uncommon it doesn't know about us yet or hasn't reached us.
However, I do think it's not ridiculous to think UFO's might be the evidence we've been looking for, but there're problems with this. First, the
evidence is insubstantial. All we really have are a lot of witness reports and there're just not enough good cases with multiple corroborating
professional/military witnesses. Of course, if we did have good cases like these, we'd probably also have supporting evidence like radar returns and
video and photographs. Strong supporting evidence is insufficient and this brings into question whether we have any good cases to begin with. Second,
if UFO's really are intelligent species then why have they not initiated open contact with us? It's understandable there might only be a couple cases
where intelligent ET's actually visited our planet and so the evidence isn't compelling enough, but it's less understandable why genuine intelligent
ET's who have the option to openly contact us are choosing not to.
And the other issue to bring up is why does ET have to fly in our atmosphere to learn about us? Couldn't they just send some nanoprobes to the inner
soalr system and observe us from there? If they had to they could send some to Earth, but they could be small enough to be essentially invisible to
us. WHY send enormous spaceships into the atmosphere which probably required more energy to get here than all the energy we've ever used as a
sp3ecies? And why send these hulking spaceships to Earth, risking them crashing on the surface, while also not wanting open contact? If the desire is
to hide then why be so careless in your operations?
