Why do aliens hide in secrecy? Are they afraid of us? World wide panic when supposedly 90% believe in other intelligent life (I read percent that in another thread somewhere, I can't remember.)

Nevertheless, the people who actually do make contact are sometimes so traumatised they end up with post traumatic stress syndrome. If u think u wont panic, just go to bed tonight and in the middle of the night imagine that an alien is standing in ur room. Most people get terrified when a burglar enters their house, let alone an alien that can do all kinds of things.

The lack of trust is what leads to so much skepticism. We are not all liars.
Edit: Ooops, let me rephrase that. We are ALL liars. Of course. But we all have some things we just won't lie about.

In law terms, You might be able to win a civil case with the perponderance of the evidence, but would lose the criminal case with evidence beyond any doubt. As something as significant as this most people would look at this as needing evidence beyond a doubt.

It is indeed difficult to sort out the good cases from the bad, to do so you need not only technical knowledge but a deep understanding of human nature. In fact I am of the opinion that a knowledge of psychology is the number one tool any UFO investigator needs to be successful.
