Okay, let's say you shoot at a UFO and you actually hit one and it crashes and kills the occupants... How do you know you got the right race?
Someone figure out a way to down one of those suckers and we'll find out what the deal is.

But if for arguments sake and for the purposes of illustration if you adopt the reciprocal assumption I.E. that clasified and advanced weapons (of which you really know nothing) have suceeded in this endevour (I.E. shooting down a ETV) then you would have to agree that this has had no baring on wheather or not the average joe knows the true nature of the phenomenon or not only really in increasing the body of information to which the public at large are "necessarily" excluded from for "national security" reasons...

come to think of it, wouldn't they consider all the bullets and missiles we send their way as metallic offerings or a cascade of metal -- in the same way as some cultures in other parts of the world might offer a garland of flowers to a visiting dignitary?

The religious bodies around the world would never allow to have this information released as it would completely prove that there isn't a "God" which created the universe and earth n 6 days.
Religion in general was created to control and propgandize the minds of the poorly educated masses. If there was an admission that alien life forms existed in the universe relgion would have no way of controling the outcome of history as it has done so for the past few millenia.
