I was saying about how they must be aliens etc and he just stopped me in my tracks by saying "Well why don't they just land and get out?"
I didn't really know what to say. I mean I dismissed it slightly but it's got me thinking, why don't they land and tell us what's going on?
I personally don't understand but am sure there's a good reason. What are peoples theories on this?

They are of the opinion that if we are worthy of acknowledging their existance then we already do know they exist.
IE you are psychologically intelligent enought you theorise that they most likely do exist then thats as far as that goes. If you are spiritually intelligent then then may contact you in inumerable ways and you dont just suspect their existance and origin, you know it. Either way they dont announce their existance with a ceremony or anything because we are not spiritually intelligent enough as a race. We are a threat to every alien race and a boon to them.
Futhermore they are on a differant frequency wavelength to us and so occupy differant timespace. We can only see them in altered states or environments.
Unfortunately though the real answers is like asking why doesant god just show up, he has better things to be doing.

Because the TPTB still have a military, warlike mentality and would probably try to blast them out of the sky.
Another reason is that as much as we like admitting that we're "ready" for contact, I think a lot of us will still be extremely fearful upon seeing seeing them because we have been conditioned by Hollywood and the media into thinking they're evil monsters who want to take over the planet (well this is partially true with some e.t. races). We like to think we're tough-skinned and could face them but I guarantee you that for some people, they'd have the same knee-jerk fear reaction as if they saw a giant spider crawling up their leg, which is also due to conditioning/learning.
