Perhpaps they got an invitation to visit their planets, and took it, and never came back ?
One interesting thing I think about everyone who thinks that these are "evil" beings is this: if they have the technology to cross
galaxies/dimensions, pass through walls, read your thoughts, induce people to do things even against their will (which is frowned upon by our morals,
but they have no obligation to live by our morals) -- what keeps them from just zapping one person out of existence, or even the whole planet, if they
were really evil ?
There might be some beings out there with very questionable morals, looking from our point of view, but again, I guess chickens and cows must think
the same about us humans.
If you consider a race that has experienced our exponential growth rates for hundreds of thousands of years (comparing to our last 100 years), how
would we look like to such beings ? Both in technological capabilities as in moral and general spirituality...
If we treat our animals as we do, then why shouldn't they do whatever they want with us, if we look from this perspective ?
Just some thoughts =)
