This is pretty much the conclusion I've become to.
There's simply NO evidence firm enough to prove anything true or false. More or less everybody on the UFOlogy field is either a fraud or a skeptic without any evidence. I would even say that most people who get called "skeptics" or "debunkers" are the BIGGEST believers. They just don't want any BS, they want proof because they want to know.
From even a layman scientific perspective, why is there so little evidence of extraterrestrials? Wouldn't it be way more probable that we WOULD have met some of them? I've said it before and I say it again: this whole setting raises some pretty odd questions about the existence of ourselves.
If the universe is swarming with life, they're doing a REALLY good job at hiding.

Aliens Do Not Exist!
They do exist and they are here -- above, below and on this ball.. It's silliness at this point in time to suggest otherwise.
Iv'e been doing this EBE/UFO investigation for a bunch of years and wouldn't think twice about saying EBEs are not around our ball.
But they are, big-time.

OP, If this is true then how are the tptb profiting from all this?
Follow the money...Your theory promotes a dead end. If such tech existed then it would certainly be produced and put to market.
To put it simply, people who believe in Aliens are wrong and are being decieved by TPTB. Now you might say "I've seen one" or "I was abducted" and that is fair enough but where is the proof? or more to the point where is the proof they are aliens?

Oh no, thank you! For pointing out the proof! So naive!

Here's my two cents:
I agree that 'aliens' do not exist, but not for the reason that the OP states (although those are valid points, nonetheless). I won't dive into into religion (I am a firm christian) straight away, as that will be incredibly unproductive and nothing good will come of it yet. Assuming the big bang is true (which I disagree with, but I will try and entertain your ideas for a while) then it is incredibly likely that life exists on other planets, I'm not trying to disprove that. What I am saying is that aliens almost certaintly haven't come to this planet.
I studied psychology for a few years, in that time I took particular interest in hypnosis, NLP and various things such as micro-expressions and lie-detecting. These skills have been useful to me in many places, and one of those places was disproving conspiracy theories. Examples include TV documentaries (I think I may still have one recorded on Sky+) where there was a man who claims to have been abducted and experimented on. He also claims that the aliens visit him regularly and has even recorded a video of one passing his window. Immediately one can tell that he is lying (too many signs to list them all, but some include: placing an object between him self and the person he is lying to, when 'remembering' things looking up and to the left (his right) and creating an air pocket between his lips and his gums/teeth (sign of him hiding something)), he also shows fear micro-expressions (fear of being found out), etc.
It also helped me to understand about how the human mind can be unpredictable occaisionally and will often fool people into believeing things that didn't actually happen. The human mind can suffer delusions that seem entirely real, hell, they've happened to me! Common causes for what people tend to think of as alien encounters are often lucid dreams, sleep paralysis, tricks of the mind or something else that is completely rational.
I also suggest that everyone reads Mere Christianity by C.S Lewis. It is a brilliant read that provides a brilliant insight into christianity.
hard to explain unless you know what insight or psi is and remote view, sense people before they phone or show up, know theres an email waiting for you, that is all akin to energy recognition and energy signatures that you pick up like your other senses of sight, sound, etc) Well, I knew him, not sure how, but such a warm feeling of this guide being family came over me and I was jsut excited. This is what I call positive contact
