I'll post this again, so it won't go unread:
People, please consider this: There is absolutely NO evidence of any kind of "alien" existence except for the stories and a lot of blurry photo/video material. Do you think that the agencies presumably covering up the phenomenon are really that effective at hiding all the evidence? I would like to believe these things also, but it's really more probable that everything has a very natural explanation.
As far as the abduction phenomenon goes, I think it might be about some psychological experiments. I mean, the US government has a history in these weird projects, like MK Ultra, which actually existed, and may still exists in some form. I think all these strange operations are orchestrated by some very messed up individuals in high places.
I think that the Alien Question is - in the end - a very philosophical question about human existance itself: if by all odds the universe should be swarming with intelligent life, why haven't we encountered any? Are they all hiding? That would be very strange and improbable also. All these things raise many questions about who we are and where we should be heading.
Please show me some REAL evidence, and I will surely believe it all.

Well that is your belief and obviously not others.
What your also saying in this statement that those that have come out and stated that they are real, Ie: Edgar Mitchell for one example, Buzz is another, there are a few out there, are lying to us when they say they experienced this! Sorry but to me there are too many scientist and professionals out there that have had some sort of contact, that are now coming out and stating that this has been going on for years. You cant just disregard what these people are saying, even the thousands of everyday people that have experienced this as well. I can understand that there would be a number that are not what they say there are, but again you just cant disregard the many that have good proof of their experiences.
Also what someone may consider good proof, may not be what you see as proof.
Neither of you can prove your case either way.
It is the equivalent of saying "NO Aliens have ever visited Earth but we have secretly had the technology to explore the Milky Way galaxy and explore for life BUT we kept it hidden from humanity for the past 60+ years because we are cool like that. Enjoy your American Idol while we go cruise through Sirius SUCKERS!"

How many of you will go to work tomorrow if there is a Alien or a UFO on CNN? I think it is a valid question. Answer HONESTLY! Will you go to work tomorrow if there is an Alien doing a Interview on Larry King Live or FOX news pulls an exclusive first hand tour through an alien spacecraft. Honestly people NOT going to work is a VALID argument against disclosure. The entire WORLD literally LITERALLY being shut down overnight.
