The link above has a great opening post and then 20+ pages of bickering, credibilty checking, etc. I hope either that thread turns into something worthy by the OP coming back and posting in it, or your new thread comes out. At least you don't just disappear leavin everyone hanging.

The burden of proof does lie with the one who makes the claim.
In the case of "Aliens Do Not Exist" the claim is obvious and the burden of proof lies with the person claiming that ALIENS DO NOT EXIST.
If the title were "ALIENS DO EXIST" then the burden of proof would be to prove that, but since the OP is stating the opposite he has taken the burden upon himself, though he has not reasoned this other than to say 'prove it, or - because I believe it'
Im going to do us both a favor and hit the "Ignore" button on you..

If that doesn't satisfy you, then I will go on.
There are billions and billions of other galaxies out in the universe with billions and billions of other stars that could have millions and millions of other planets orbiting them.
