I believe it is probable that other life forms are in the universe, but unlikely they all come to earth to hang out with us and slip us the probe.
Many do not believe that aliens live amongst us for several reasons.
1. It would defy known physics for them to be able to arrive here in any reasonabe amount of time.
2. Nobody has any real proof of aliens being on Earth beyond a crappy youtube video that proves nothing.
3. I could put up a youtube video of a light shining on a wall and like half the people would think it was an awesome example of an alien craft and star and flag my thread.
4. Most people who believe aliens live amongst us discredit themselves by also believing a bunch of other nonsensical stuff.
5. Since everything in the universe is a product of evolution, which inherintely teaches us the value of us vs them, then if they were here they would probably kill every last one of us and set up camp, before we got a chance to do it to them.

1. It would defy KNOWN physics yes. However there is probably a way around it, even if they have to resort to informational travel. And warping space is possible.
2. What is proof to you? President Carter told us they were here. Photos and videos do nothing because they can be faked, so even if real, and I'm sure many are, they do not count as evidence any more than eyewitness accounts. Not all of them are blurry either.
3. Maybe, but that only says of the people who believe, not of the aliens' existence.
4. Again, irrelevant.
5. Maybe they have a moral code?
