Sure. Works for me. But...if...
"Aliens don't reveal themselfs to the human race as it would disrupt the learning process"
...then those who do are disupting our learning process and are therefore mean, nasty, evil and not to be trusted. Right?

that theory makes sense, but i'm not sure what your definition of the word alien is. if it is reticulans or reptilians, then i would have to disagree, as those beings are pure manifestations of pyschotronic mind control. or at least thats according to DR. Helmut Lammer.

norwegian guy, you should check out the book "The Purgatorio" by Dante Aligheri.

How can you question the motives of something you don't even know exists? But assuming there are extraterrestrial life forms and that they have, in fact, visited earth, why would they "show themselves" or attempt to interfere with our society in any way?
Suppose they are friendly and cause mass hysteria? That would be a bad thing according to our system of beliefs, so they do not wish to take that chance.
Suppose they are unfriendly and cause mass hysteria followed by massive military efforts to defends ourselves from them? That would be bad for everyone involved.
Suppose they are showing themselves to us in the same way that a scientist shows himself to the bugs he is studying? Do you ever wonder what the animals in the forest think of humans? For many of them it could be the first time they have ever laid eyes on one. They tend to be fearful or hostile, if they even care at all. In many cases, scientists observe wildlife from hidden vantage points, to avoid affecting the observed subject's behavior.
If an extraterrestrial race has the technology to traverse the vast distances between star systems, then they would probably see us as a very, very primitive species prone to highly aggressive tendencies. Would they want to make contact with us openly or observe us from hidden vantage points? Would they even know where to start in communicating with us?
Perhaps there's nothing they can learn from us via direct contact that they can't learn about us from concealed observation?
Next time you go outside, start up a conversation with a passing bird, pit bull, or fly. Let us know how that works out for you... then maybe you'll understand why a visiting extraterrestrial might find it less than opportunistic to land in the parking lot at a local shopping mall.

if you research the paper trails and "connect the dots"
you will discover his book stands up to scrutiny
now; according to our US Military guy who allegedly got to play with some of the UFO technology
the US Military considers UFOs to be of
because they avoid all attempts to communicate diplomatically
and they always evade our jets; invading our airspace especially invading topsecret military base airspace
these things give the military goose bumps ... lol
thats what phil corso said
hes dead now *suspicious death*
i think i read that somewhere
u should read the book and form ur own opinion
its a crazy book
