[Do the non-believers think NASA is playing GOD when we send our "Robotic Angels" to our planets and Moons?
[But wouldn't believing in Aliens be really just believing in yourself? Or maybe I'm confused, believing in Aliens visiting Earth is the same as Christianity?
[I hope the die-hard skeptics of the future remember to use the argument, it is a very remote possibility that Aliens could visit us with our current technology and knowledge of the Universe.

I think the argument you're referring to is the one used in religious debates, when somebody says that you cannot prove God's existence because there is no physical evidence, then the religious guy defends himself by saying that you cannot prove extraterrestrial life's existence since there too is no evidence. This argument doesn't work on me though, because there are hundreds of billions of galaxies in the visible universe, each containing billions of stars, and the idea that we are the only planet that has developed life in the entire universe is insanely stupid. We are just one planet in one solar system in one galaxy, and the thought that we are the one planet that was lucky enough to develop life just doesn't sit right with me.
If we had the technology to travel across the universe in our lifetime, I know for a fact we would find other life out there. And there are thousands of eye witness reports of alien abductions, close encounters, as well as the thousands of UFO images/videos available on the internet. While many of these are fake, I really doubt that every single one of the thousands of eye witnesses are just lying about their alien encounters. With God however, there is absolutely no physical evidence to prove his existence. The only way to find out is to die and meet him or not meet him yourself, but IMO when you die your brain stops functioning, and you need your brain to take in information, to perceive your surroundings, to understand language, etc., so when you die, you die and that's it. -emphasis added by Gib
