4) They Are Here and Do Exist: This is where most of the conspiracy theorist will thrive, that they are here, meddling with us humans, but we're too stupid to notice, or it's been hidden too well from us.
(My own emphasis)
The color spectrum we see with our eyes is a very narrow slice of the known electromagnetic spectrum.
True, but anything made of solid matter interacts with the visible light spectrum.
Of course, if these aliens are made of something other than normal matter, then that's different.
there are no possibilities besides the ones we know of

Um... a chemical reaction?
I find that UpIsNowDown´s first post is "fresh" and out of the box. It´s kind of obvious you´think otherwhise.

This is a really good thread. I tend to lean towards the rare earth scenario modified by the thought that intelligent life is not necessarily an evolutionary goal, instead one of many possible side developments, and will not form on a planet that is identical to earth unless all the nuanced sequences of events required for it take place.

Intelligent life on Earth formed as part of the battle between finding the next meal and avoiding becoming the next meal for something else.

After some thinking, i came to this conclusion:
-There is intelligent life capable of interstellar travel in the Milky Way (at least 20-50 races)
-Some of this life has and does visit Earth
-While many focus on Earth bound governments hiding their presence, its clear to me that the visitors are masking their own presence and are careful to disclose themselves fully.
With this in mind, i think what we have is a galactic organization involving a number of interstellar races that determine the "readiness" of a planet's life for disclosure...
You are actually very close!
Indeed advanced races are capable of interstellar travel, however, they have removed the issue of having to 'travel', they simply relocate, they teleport. They can stop existing at one spot, and start existing at another as they please.
Also there IS an organizaion of alien species, and they DO measure the readiness of a plantet's community for disclosure!
Multiple alien races are observing Earth, and they are eagerly waiting for the time to arrive where they can present themselves officially.
People underestimate their intelligence, the 'advanced' races are VERY intelligent. Hollywood should also stop putting aliens on display as warmongerers, 99% of the universe is at peace. War is rare. Why would someone in their right mind kill one their own, truly it is not hard to understand, and alot of aliens do understand this and live in harmony, as could we one day.
They apparently forget how things work...do we really care what they think about us?
This is a question they face now...emotionless beings trying to recreate that which was...YAWN.
Stifling and lying is the game they played...perhaps they went just a tad too far...........
We can naturally assume
