I have seen the usuall reasons and the multimedia show that alien enthusiasts put up but am not in the least bit willing to accept that aliens have in fact visited Earth.
I do however do believe that 'intelligent life' exsists in our universe.
Coming to earth ? I dont think so ! Why would they have to ? If they can come so far they could might as well pitch a tent on mars and observe us remotely. Also what would be the point ?

Space guys, transdimensional beings, timetravelers, skinwalkers, shadowpeople and spooks are all around us but our primitive, arrogant, monkey brains are so clouded with self absorption and materialism; that we can't see them.
Ethnocentrism and Homo-centrism limits us from the vast cosmos waiting just outside the door of our perception.
I suggest a little study of Aldos Huxley and Carlos Castaneda.
I understand peoples fear of the unknown; Another limiting factor that keeps us from the truth.
I see many on this board "Believing" is very much in line with having "Faith". Their "faith" or "belief" is a significant part of their rationale. With that kind of passionate approach, someone like myself sounds irrationale.
Example there are many people in my family who have strong beliefs and are very religiously "faithful". I can say the Shroud of Turin is a fake and present the evidence that it is false/fake. In presenting my case I will provoke their passionate beliefs and they will respond with shock and barbs. They will say or do almost anything to "make me believe" regardless of what scientific or objective evidence I present.
Having so much faith is the grounds for "Spreading the Word" or "Make People Believe". For those of us like myself that like Science, Science Fiction and are only intrigued by the UFO/Alien phenomenon, their is no need for "Faith" or "Belief". There are people who are into UFOs/Aliens at a religious-like level, whether they want to admit it or not. It is not a question of objective discussions or explaining, it is simply a case for Believing.

Have you seen artifacts which were made in the past depicting Alien life forms such as the Reptilian statues found in Iraq or the pictographs in Egyptian pyramids showing airplanes and helicopters? Im not sure where but I think in Europe they also found pictographs in caves of Aliens similar to the classic Grey. Do you think it was made by imagination? Remember back then, one would get killed for heretic type stuff...
