When explaining this equation, Carl Sagan once said the formula means that at least 1 million of the 100 billion stars in our Milky Way galaxy have planets which have developed advanced intelligent civilizations. Now, if we consider the astronomical fact that there are over 10 billion galaxies in the universe, each holding at least another million solar systems, one may start to think that we may not be the only life in the universe.
From 1947 until 17 December 1969, the United States Air Force actively investigated reports and sightings of unidentified flying objects - UFOs, under a program called Project Blue Book. Project Blue Book investigated 12,618 UFO sightings and 701 of those sightings remained unidentified.

There's a lot of things which we know are fact but we can't provide hard evidence.
Look at the Giant Squid for example, we knew they were out there, we had suggestive evidence, we had witnesses etc etc, but we only just recently got hard proof to show the world that they are real and alive.
You can look at things like Operation Northwoods which for years and years was considered conspiracy lies and propaganda because there was no proof of it existing.... until it was de-classified and proven to be true (a win for the conspiracy folk).
I guess there's too much to be gained from controlling populations with religion to allow religion to be compromised by an element which all but re-writes humanities history, that would be a logical answer for the short term but for the long term, it's suppose to be something to do with buying time and getting prepared for the invasion by dealing with these life forms to give them some of what they want without taking it all. If it all comes public fact straight away then the aliens have no reason to deal with us anymore and they'll start their invasion to take it all.
Who knows really but there's a lot more out there than what most people think, it's just going to take something very huge before you can really convince those that refuse to believe it - which is the majority really.
When you think about it, why as a species do we believe in religion without evidence or even in the face of contradictory historical fact, yet the thought of Aliens makes people laugh? We've been bred to believe one thing and told to ridicule another for no real reason other than to be control. It's an interesting history that - find the book called "the Gods of Eden" to read about how aliens/religion/history/war/banking/brotherhoods have all circled the wagons around the population throughout history.
I think there suppose to be steps being taken to secure a survival of humanity in the face of an invasion, one of the reason we are building more and more underground bases, making new weapons and spending heaps on technology which never reaches the public etc. Religion has been the cover story and the control method in keeping this preperation underwraps and used to spark wars to fund these programs and even test them. War is always a profit maker for someone and always has been.
There's suppose to be an astoroid coming close to Earth in the next 10 - 20 years and that's ment to be why there's a move to get Earth ready for something big and also why the Aliens will eventually make themselves known before Earth is hit - they want the resources we have before it's all gone. This is also ment to be why since we went nuclear they've been taking a closer interest - we now have the power to destroy ourselves and Earths resources which affects them too.
But then again, all life as we know it could simply be another form of seamonkeys and the stars in our universe are actually just holes in a box being carried by a kid in another dimension as he takes his seamonkeys to school!
As you can see i have no idea but i'm gunning for an Alien invasion because i'm sick and tired of us fighting each other, that's getting old. What a dissapointment humanity would be if it killed itself out with nukes!
